Scary Reasons Why You Should not Shave your Pubic Hair

Well, there are some of us who cannot stand the pubic hair down there. They prefer going baldy and its okay. There is the groupie that is #teampubichair and it’s also very fine.

But did you know there are some scary reasons why you should not shave the hair down there?


Hair that has been cut short is bound to grow back. When this happens for pubes, the a few days old stubble causes an itch that is made worse by the sensitivity of the skin around the genitals.

Having pubic hair allows sweating of the pubic area. This sweating, closely associated with the one of the underarms is responsible for secretion of pheromones, the chemical that triggers natural sexual reaction from members of the different gender. You certainly don’t want to fight nature’s way of finding you a partner.

Side effects

The skin around the pubic area is more sensitive than on the rest of the body. It gets irritated fast by the minor things like a blunt razor, a shaving cream and other methods used to get rid of hair. Sometimes this results in cases of razor burn, ingrown hair, razor bumps and allergic reactions which all turn out to be a bother.

Genital warts

Transmission of genital warts occurs through contact with infected skin. Research has shown that men who keep their pubic hair have a lower chance of getting warts. This is because pubic hair acts as a shield to reduce skin contact between people during intercourse.

Commitment and expenses

Getting rid of pubic hair is different from going to the barber for a haircut. It requires a lot of time to achieve, bearing in mind the gentleness that should accompany it. Purchase of the shaving tools may also be an unwanted expense considering the hair will keep growing back.

Gender equality

As a symbol of the overrated hygiene, it may seem appealing to bring a clean-shaven deal to the table. But for ages, being masculine has been associated with coarseness and raggedness. Shaving ones pubes to a baby bum’s softness may therefore appear unmanly and confusing.

Having known this, guys should therefore rethink before throwing that shaving cream in their shopping basket.
