Pubic hair is a major concern to many, but is it wise to laser it off?
The week before I moved to Bologna, back when my hymen and I were still attached at the hip, I asked my mother for advice on how to shave my lady-bits. The argument that ensued is probably filed in some library between the Battle of Waterloo and the Battle of the Somme. The truth is, my mother came from a generation that didn’t really advocate shaving Lady Vag, but, thankfully, we are now living in different times. Thankfully.
Nowadays we know more about personal hygiene than ever before, and we all know how much bacteria can grow within the intertwined paths of the down and under. If that’s not reason enough to keep your bush trimmed, it is also good to note that the overall appearance of Lady Vag also improves after she’s had a haircut. But, then, what about lasering it off? Is it safe? Is it wise?
Let’s start with the obvious: lasering your pubic hair is fast, effective and clean. It saves you a lot of time when you need to rush out and you know you’re going to have someone eat you up later on (or when you’re hoping you’ll have someone have a slice of your lemon meringue later…). It’s also much less painful than waxing, won’t leave any razor burns and you never have to worry whether the hairs are long enough to be removed or not.
“But is it safe?” I hear you asking?
Well, it’s no more dangerous than lasering off your armpit or upper-lip hair really. The millions of procedures completed throughout the world have proven that the risk does not really change from one area of the body to another as long as it is done by a professional.
If you’re a man and you’re considering getting your pubic hair lasered off – just to clarify things I’m not promoting this in any way – you might want to be aware of the fact that some men experience erections during the procedure, but this is completely normal and nothing to worry about.
The only thing you need to keep in mind is that lasering your pubic hair off is permanent so if you ever want a lightning bolt directing the way to your crevice, you’ll have to draw it on using pencil eyeliner.
