Wax On Wax Off
In the always fascinating, sometimes disturbing world of hygiene there is a practice that goes on all over the world.
Some would say that it is barbaric while others embrace the pain solely for aesthetic reasons.
There are varying degrees of this practice. The practice is modification of pubic hair.
Some choose not to modify their pubic hair and instead leave it all natural with no modification at all. Then there is trimming where hair length is shortened but not removed or shaped.
The Triangle, Landing Strip (long, centered, vertical rectangle with hair approx ¼ inch long), Brazilian G-wax (pubic hair completely removed except for a remnant, centered, narrow stripe above the vulva approximately an inch in size) and the full Brazilian (completely bare)
One of my former neighbors and his brother (who would talk about all things sexual without any embarrassment) used to say “It’s a garden. Let it grow” making it very clear that they both preferred the natural style.
I have been quietly and discreetly inquiring about this and I have received answers that run the gamut from both men and women.
One man said “Less is more” but very few men were comfortable answering my question.
Women were a bit more forthcoming. One shaved it all off and went into detail on how she maintains it without waxing. Another shaved most off except for a small patch on her mons.
For me personally, I have tried shaving it all off, using Nair, trimming, landing strip etc. I have shied away from waxing as it seems really, really painful. I really want to try the full Brazilian but the thought of going in and having it done makes me cringe.
Here is my question:
If you are a man, what kind of maintenance do you prefer? Be honest. I seriously want to know. Also, please let me know if you “manscape” and how much.
If you are a woman, what kind of maintenance do you prefer and what method do you use? Waxing, shaving, hair removal creams etc. How much do you spend to maintain your style?
If you are married, did your maintenance change in any way? Style, frequency etc.
If you want to answer anonymously, I completely understand.
Inquiring minds want to know.
