Think again. Copper razors have been found that date back to Ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia, which means humans have been shaving since before Biblical times. The Ancient Greeks revered youthful, immortal bodies, so they painted and sculpted women without pubic hair to indicate their beauty. In any case, at least some Greek courtesans plucked their pubic hair to extinction, or even burned it off.

Best of both worlds…not scratchy, not clammy, not able to hide a fully stocked British warship. So pretty much just shave a line down the middle. My buddies and the one girl that saw it think its hilarious. Really hope it becomes the new trendy style. It was weird to me at first, and I still keep it trimmed nicely. But anyone who complains about someone having either or always bugged me because it seems so childish to do so. Bushy as possible. When you are muffing them out you might hit it lucky and find the odd bit of food that got caught in the hair. Also if you happen to have a slight itch on your pork truncheon you can accidentally skid it across the rough surface to give it a good old scratch. Completely shaven is the dream.

Hairy or shaved vaginas is one of those topics that comes with opinions dealing with sex and overall hygiene. Some believe that hairy vaginas are better because they are natural, while others believe that shaved vaginas are better for oral sex and that perfect camel toe that so many love. Either way, it goes; everyone has an opinion on whether hairy or shaved vaginas are better.
The other day a curious question was presented to me: Many women shave their vaginas, so should their hairy-balled boyfriends shave their junk in solidarity? Does shaving your balls make you a better feminist? It was a delightful question. Then I remembered that I had laser hair removal done. Shit, I thought. But here are two reasons you should considered shaving those bad boys. David Ortmann , psychotherapist and sex therapist, says that shaving your balls can make the approaching summer heat more manageable. On the other hand, pubic hair also helps sweat coagulate, which could mean no more swamp balls.
