What Guys Really Think … Of Hair Down There

To shave or not to shave … that is the million-dollar question (and if you get razor burn as easily as I do in the winter then it’s really a no-brainer). But for guys, does the decision to go bare really matter? Or is the bush coming back in style? From manscaping to Brazilian waxes, guys get real about pubic hair.

This Just In: Pubic Hair Is Making A Comeback

A recent survey found that 51 percent of ladies are just letting things go wild down there without any styling or grooming to be had. If Diaz, along with Lady Gaga, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Solange, just to name a few, are keeping their Downtown Browns, what about the rest of us? What are all us average ladies on the street doing, and what do the men in our lives thing about it?

Weird News: A Feather Pubic Hair Wig? Yes, Really.

As far as the attractiveness of the Foxy Bikini and The Carnivale (the fox fur and the feather treatments, respectively) go, this writer has not enjoyed the opportunity to check them out close-up. However, one can imagine that it would be pretty funny to go through the awkward process of pulling someone's clothes off for the first time to be confronted with what looks like an animal either trying to enter or escape from a woman's babymaker.

Weird News: The Rise Of The "Boyzilian" (Or "Brozilian") Wax

According to experts in the field, men are going in for more and more hair removal treatments at spas. At the center of this trade is a male version of the Brazilian wax, a wax that removes all pubic hair from a person's groin. The so-called "Boyzilian" (or as we call it, "Brozilian") may be inspired by porn, or just weird evolutionary shame.

Why Do People Have Pubic Hair?

Have you ever thought about why do humans have pubic hair? What is its purpose? It seems no one (at least under 30) is letting his or her bush sprout. Instead everyone is talking about what to do with their pubes. Should I shave them? Dye them? Trim them down to a runway strip? Experts aren’t exactly sure why we have pubic hair, but there are a few theories which seem to make a lot of sense.

Should Your Man Pay For Your Bikini Wax?

In The Hairpin's Ask a Dude column recently, an advice-seeker brought up this hairy situation: who should pay for your bikini wax? She thinks the man asking for it should, writing "I always think guys should be paying for the Brazilians if they want their ladies to have them. Is that insane?"

The Hair Down There Was His Deal Breaker

On our first date, we ended up making out in a bar on the Lower East Side. Our second date, I invited him up to my apartment. Maybe I was moving too fast, but I didn't care. After a tough breakup, I wanted to let my hair down. Which, I discovered over the next few weeks, wasn't Tobey's thing. One night I mentioned it jokingly, and he said, "I don't mind doing that at all. If a woman is well-groomed."

5 Crazy Things Women Do To The Hair Down There

The other day, Jennifer Love Hewitt appeared on "Lopez Tonight" to plug her new dating book, The Day I Shot Cupid. During the course of the show, she revealed that one of the tips in her book—practiced by a friend of hers—was to glue Swarovski crystals to one's pubic area. Now, we're all for bedazzling ... T-shirts ... but we're a little worried that some women are taking the personal landscaping a little too far. Here, five crazy beauty rituals that we women perform below the belt.

Best Bedroom Vows For 2010

Here are my resolutions for 2010: to go to Bikram yoga three days a week, to get in touch with friends I haven't seen in awhile, to pursue a new hobby (maybe photography), and to take two really awesome vacations. Oh, and I have a few sex resolutions too. Last year I vowed to give less blow jobs (achieved!), but 2010 is here, I'm back on the blowie train, and I'm ready to make a few new sexy vows for the next decade. After the jump are 25 sex resolutions—a few of them are mine, but I'm not telling which. What are your sex resolutions for the new year?

"Sexy" Gifts That Women Don't Actually Like

Some might say a lacy teddy or a feather tickler is more of a gift for him than for me—selfish, even. But I love sexy holiday gifts. Not only am I a little greedy when it comes to my lingerie drawer, but I love the reminder that my guy thinks I'm a sex goddess! That said, I get why some guys are afraid to shop for lingerie. The best sexy-gift shopping occurs through interpreting another person's fantasies; the gift should really reflect the way the woman sees herself in bed, not the way the man sees his lady. If she's classy, then don't go klassy. In my mind, I'm burlesque star Dita Von Teese in bed, so I'll be bewildered, to say the least, by a present in the style of Boob Job McGee, Tara Reid.

Male Perspective: Women, Grow Out Your Pubic Hair

Ladies, let your pubic hair grow. Allow it to run riot like a wild, verdant jungle. Shave not your delicate triangle of womanly power. Not all dudes demand a shorn 'gina. I know that many do, and I apologize on behalf of those creeps. And it is creepy – I can't help but think a lot of dudes drool over the bare look because it's infantilizing. This might not be a conscious kink, but it's true. I'm not so into the pre-pubescent look. In fact, I'm all about '70s porno bush.

Can Manscaping Go Too Far?

Manscaping, as a trend, may have hit its final plateau. Evidently, the grooming trend has gone to the point that some women are actually imploring men to let things grow a bit rather than shaving all of their pubic hair clean off. Let us know what you think.

My First Time Getting A Brazilian Wax

For years, I've heard horror stories of the Brazilian bikini wax. Getting down on all fours, raising a leg like a dog peeing on a tree, spreading my butt cheeks to allow a complete stranger to apply hot wax in the most private crevices of my body—these didn't seem like things I needed to rush out and experience (at least not in public) ... Summoning my courage, I decided that it was time to shed light on the truth behind the Brazilian.
