ArticleSexPubic Hair Removal Amoung Women: What They Really Prefer?

Written By: Jeff

Although this is not a new study, we downloaded some very interesting research regarding women and their pubic hair conducted by the International Society for Sexual Medicine. This report is from 2010. You can download the complete .pdf version of the report located here.

Extract from the .pdf report, here is the abstract:

Introduction. Although women’s total removal of their pubic hair has been described as a “new norm,” little is
known about the pubic hair removal patterns of sexually active women in the United States.

Aims. The purpose of this study was to assess pubic hair removal behavior among women in the United States and
to examine the extent to which pubic hair removal methods are related to demographic, relational, and sexual
characteristics, including female sexual function.

Methods. A total of 2,451 women ages 18 to 68 years completed a cross-sectional Internet-based survey.

Main Outcome Measures. Demographic items (e.g., age, education, sexual relationship status, sexual orientation),
cunnilingus in the past 4 weeks, having looked closely at or examined their genitals in the past 4 weeks, extent and
method of pubic hair removal over the past 4 weeks, the Female Genital Self-Image Scale (FGSIS) and the Female
Sexual Function Index (FSFI).

Results. Women reported a diverse range of pubic hair-grooming practices. Women’s total removal of their pubic
hair was associated with younger age, sexual orientation, sexual relationship status, having received cunnilingus in the
past 4 weeks, and higher scores on the FGSIS and FSFI (with the exception of the orgasm subscale).
Conclusion. Findings suggest that pubic hair styles are diverse and that it is more common than not for women to
have at least some pubic hair on their genitals. In addition, total pubic hair removal was associated with younger age,
being partnered (rather than single or married), having looked closely at one’s own genitals in the previous month,
cunnilingus in the past month, and more positive genital self-image and sexual function.

For those of you who want to cut to the chase and get the real story about women’s hair removal method, we have summarized the following from the report:

Some other interesting data from this research study was the data related to Laser Hair Reduction. It doesn’t appear that with all the laser hair removal daily deal offers (read our post on 1.2M laser hair removal sessions sold by Groupon) that the % of women in using laser hair removal in their bikini area is that large.

Here are the quick stats

In the age group of 18-24, 99.1% say they have not used laser.
In the age group of 25-29, 97/9% say they have not used laser.
In the age group of 30-39, 99.3% say they have not used laser.
In the age group of 40-49, 99.5% say they have not used laser.
In the age group of 50+, 100% say they have not used laser.

By far the most common method is still shaving. Anyway, we suggest you download the full PDF if you really want to understand the study and data. BTW – it is only 9-pages, so a pretty quick read.
