The history of pubic hair is far more interesting than any other. If you like the battles of Napoleon, the conquest of other continents, the colonisations or the succession of inventions, you’ll also enjoy reading now a little about the obsession with female hair.

An escort at La Vie en Rose was commenting on her impressions about pubic hair. “I remember a day at the beach with a friend. I took off my bikini to get into the water naked and he did the same with his swimsuit. He had so much hair down below that I said laughing that it seemed a pussy from the seventies”.

Of course, in the seventies, having your pubis natural style was precisely that. A demonstration of sexual freedom and naturalness. The situation that this escort was telling us about also sums up the swaying of history in this regard. According to the era, the style, length, shape, even colour and ornaments have changed. Let’s take a journey through such enthralling steps of humanity.

Egyptians, Greeks, Roman: Don’t step out of line

It’s incredible how fashion has changed. TV series like Sex and the City proclaimed in 1996 that the pubis had to be like a ball of billiards and laser started to eliminate roots immediately. Sad but true, this creations has greatly influenced women in our century. But the script writers didn’t invent it as there is nothing new under the sun.

The Egyptians, Greeks and Roman didn’t have a laser in their bathrooms or beauty salons but they were clear about it. Sexy was a pubis clean of hair, as their sensual marble sculptures reflect. Not a hair in that area.

The Egyptians used a kind of sharp stone and something similar to the wax used today. The Greek were a bit more radical using even abrasion to eliminate the hair or hair by hair removal to achieve the sought after softness. High class Roman and courtesans or escorts of the time were shaven and even some men were too, although it was considered something womanizers did. A bit later, in the Byzantine Empire there was a hair remover cream.

In the middle Ages and the obscurantism of the time, the fear to the all powerful religion, hunger and the little life change perspective of the lower classes, pubic hair it let loose once again.

Although in during this time of history pubic hair comes back with a vengeance, High class women still followed the old style. A well shaven pubis in fear of parasite infection, for example, was something quite reasonable.

Pubic hair in the XX century

Gillette created the first feminine razor in 1915, at first, for the armpits. However, the lack of nylon during the war made women shave their legs more as there were no tights.

Some decades later, in 1946, the first bikini oriented to the North American woman was launched. To show it off properly, men considered visible pubic hair had to me removed. And from then up to today, with laser removing absolutely all the hair forever there is a long stretch.

Since then, the obsession with feminine hair has just increased. Wilkinson Sword launched its razor and declared, almost explicitly, that feminine hair was anti hygienic and anti feminine. However, didn’t say anything about male hair. It’s incredible how a small hair triangle between the legs didn’t go by unnoticed but those hairy backs, fingers, ears, nose or nape did.

Baldness and genital baldness, your worst enemies

Hair is one of Mother Nature’s ways to communicate the state of health of a person. As a way to call for attention and as a sign of power, of group belonging and as an unparalleled entertainment on Sunday afternoons.

We see daily how advertising insists on sending us to a clinic that restores our hair. Sometimes it works, others, one looks like Berlusconi, something like a German shepherd with synthetic hair.

Baldness in the head is almost one hundred per cent a male thing but there is a kind of baldness that really bothers Asian women and it’s not their husband’s. We are talking about the genital baldness, their worst enemy.

If in the West, nowadays, shaven pubis is in fashion, perhaps with a bit of hair but never like in the sixties, in some Asian countries, the total opposite. Hair is worn in the same place where here is removed.

In Corea, a woman with this kind of problem can get to pay more than 2000 USD for an implant of pubic hair. The abundance of hair between the legs is considered a sign of fertility and sexual health. It’s also a sign that they don’t have anything better to spend their money on.

Predicting the economy according to female pubic hair

Is there a certain parallel between the times of abundance and the shaving of the pubis? Probably yes, according to the latest Harvard University studies. When the economy is favoured, people have jobs and everyone eats more than one or two meals a day, people are bored and begin to remove their hair.

If, on the contrary, times are difficult and there is no general joy, when poverty and the lack of desire to live in hope arrive, people leave their hair on to the fullest.

If what they say about the return of pubic hair is true, shall we suspect a low on the economy? Can we predict the rises and falls in the stock market according to the pubic hair of the escorts? We can only meet up with them to guess.
