    I don't have any hair down there, one of my friends doesn't trim and is all natural and the others either trim or have no hair. Me and my friends are open about things like this.

    I'm in 2nd year and over the past year I've done both no hair and trimmed. Guys don't seem to mind either way. My last boyfriend preferred me to be hairless, but my current boyfriend, as I live with him, is happy with trimmed as it's a bit of a pain being hairless constantly. To be honest though, he has told me multiple times that as long as I'm happy and comfortable I can do what I want.

    I think as a general rule most guys don't mind (this probably applies more to college age or above due to maturity/ understanding that real sex isn't like porn). Men aren't a different species- think about your views on male pubic hair and that's likely to give you an insight into how men think too! As long as it's relatively tidy and clean down there I'm sure it's fine.

    From my experience, it's very normal for a girl to shave or wax and be hairless when she has sex or does stuff with a guy. Other times during the week when you know sex is not on the cards its normal to just leave it to grow a little or only trim when it's just for your eyes.

    In my personal opinion its very abnormal for a university aged girl to be completely natural - or in fact probably most younger women nowadays.

    From having a fair few male mates, I've heard some stories shared about girls they've slept with who were trimmed in different ways or had "strips" as they call them. They aren't disgusted by these kind of keeps, they just share their experiences probably due to a fascination in finding a girl who doesn't conform to hairlessness - as that is seen as the norm.

    A couple of times, me or friends have been caught "off-guard" i.e. weren't expecting sex and hence hadn't prepared "down there". i.e. had some stubble. Guys don't seem to care. I personally feel a bit self conscious so just say "I haven't shaved" and they just shrug and say they don't really care.

    They'd prefer no hair. If I was a guy I'd prefer no hair too! But at the end of the day if there's a bit of stubble or a strip they don't mind much.

    And if you're just talking generally, not in terms of having sex with boys but just what girls do regardless of sex… then most girls still seem to keep trimmed as its just a bit of an eyesore and uncomfortable when long - and trimming/waxing is necessary if you do certain sports with short shorts or swimming anyway.

    I started shaving a few years ago because I thought it was expected and the "done thing". Since then it has grown to be a preference - I don't like the feeling of hair down there. I have not discussed it with my boyfriend as I've never felt any desire to change my "grooming" but I am almost certain that he really wouldn't mind if I had hair down there, as long as it wasn't completely out of control and like spilling out of my underwear. The same, I'm sure, goes of most decent guys. Although as the previous poster said, smooth would probably be the preference - if anything because that's what is most common and what they're likely to be used to.

    Why?

    Like much else, pubic hair is the subject of fashion. When shaving / waxing became common in porn, it became much more common in real life, but the pendulum will doubtless swing back the other way at some point.

    This.

    Do what you want - leave it / trim it / wax it (ouch) / shave it (frequently or you'll have stubble) / style it. None of them are unusual, and anyone who complains about your choice(s) is the wrong person to be with.

    I was at a talk given by a sexual health nurse. She said that nowadays she rarely sees a 'hairy pie'. Shame since in my view natural is best..

    omen grow hair on their bellies and their backs and their legs and their arms and their stomachs and their face and really anywhere their genetics decides to have hair and it is perfectly normal. What isnt normal is society trying to shame women for not looking like a hairless baby. Grown women are, after all, meant to have hair on their armpits, vulva and legs. There is nothing ‘unnatural’ about a hairy woman; if there were then the hair would not grow there in the first place. Likewise, there is nothing ‘unfeminine’ about a hairy woman; if femininity is defined as ‘like a woman’ then a woman in her natural state is by definition as feminine as she can be. Why should women only have hair on their heads ? Why is it disgusting and gross ? If it's gross why isn't a man with a hairy body gross ? Who has written the so called rules ? It also isn't unhygienic, we have water and soap don't we ? I think body hair is beautiful and feminine.

    5 reasons to keep your body hair.

    1) Save time

    2) Save money

    3) No more pain!

    4) No more prickly body parts!

    5) It’s pointless, impermanent and who actually cares?

    Body hair is oke

    Meh, I go through phases of being completely shaven to letting it grow out. I have friends who religiously shave down there every time they shower and other friends who just trim it every so often! If you're asking this because you're worried about boys reactions - don't. I've had guys who have made no comment when I haven't bothered to shave and other guys who just laughed it off.. if a guy is completely turned off by it then he isn't deserving of your body.
