If you're a single woman who never gets a phone or a text after having sex with a guy you've been dating for some time, chances are that he wasn't just using you — it just might he didn't like the way you groom your vagina. I know it sounds kind of crazy, but it does make for an interesting way to explain why you're still single. You've now got a reason.

No more ingrowns, better body confidence, and other full-bush health benefits. For years, the trendiest pubic hair style was a trimmed or bald bush.

But we've noticed a recent uptick in the of women who've tossed out their razors and waxing kits in favor of letting things go au natural down below. Anecdotally speaking, lady lawns seem to be coming back into style—and it might be because more women are discovering the surprising health benefits. It's not clear if less hair means a higher risk of STIs, but one study did link pubic hair removal to increased transmission of herpes and HPV.
Curious about some of the other wellness benefits, we asked six women who love their hairy pubes to tell us how it's boosted their physical, mental, and sexual health.
Here's why they've sworn off grooming for good. For years I felt ashamed about that, especially in my teens and early 20s—when it seemed like everyone was totally bald. But by honoring my hair preferences, I knew I was a lot more confident in the bedroom than if I'd shaved.
Because ingrown hairs suck. When I did, I'd try to find shaving cream, post-wax oil, or some other soothing product that could prevent them. So I finally decided to leave my hair be. I'm glad there are plenty of people and potential partners who appreciate a full bush and think it's sexy.
My advice to any woman who is growing out her pubes for the first time is to own it. Strut your stuff.
Embrace your natural body state. Turns out, I loved it! Zero irritation, no razor bumps, no weird chafing from my spandex shorts or underwear.
He and I have since broken up, but I still sport a bush. I recommend that any woman who has never seen or felt her lady bits with pubes grow it out at least once.
You could find you love it as much as I do. Professional waxing was not only expensive and time consuming, but it hurt.
After 15 or 20 years of this, I decided to finally listen to my body. Now I have a s-style porn bush, and I love it.
I can wear way sexier lace underwear without dealing with irritation because my hair protects me from nasty rub. At first, not shaving was an experiment: save 10 minutes two to three times a week. But the longer I stopped shaving, the more having hair grew on me, and I ended up enjoying the look of it.
By not shaving, I save 20 minutes a week, which is almost seven hours a year. By Gabrielle Kassel Updated September 19, Save Pin FB More.
