Intimate shaving: This is how you can easily remove your pubic hair – without any inflammation
In the middle of the café, “Sex and the City” Samantha scratches her private parts. At the startled looks of her friends she reacts with: “I let my hair grow down there. Smith likes a full bush!” Samantha’s friend is not alone in this preference for an unshaven pubic area. Depending on their age group and culture, many men and women enjoy “pure nature”. Nevertheless, the trend for intimate hairstyles has been increasingly “bottomless” for years.
Stars like the Kardashians or Paris Hilton also show in “I get out of the car with an ultra-short mini skirt” recordings that there is a hair-free zone in their intimate area. Kim Kardashian even has her own intimate stylist who takes care of her intimate areas including make-up. She is said to have even undergone laser treatment with the “Morpheus 8” with her intimate area. And actress Kate Winslet is said to have worn a pubic hair toupee for her role in “The Reader” because, even after years of waxing, she no longer had the basic requirements for the hairy nude photos.
Despite trendy hair removal methods such as sugaring, lasers and waxing, most women still use razors. According to a study published in the “Society for Consumer Research”, 70 percent of women prefer a wet shave. Reason enough to take a closer look at shaving: What are the advantages and disadvantages of intimate shaving and how can hair be removed without ingrown hairs or even boils?

The advantages of intimate shaving
Shaving the intimate area is the fastest hair removal method, it can be done in no time and inexpensively at home in the shower. Fans of the hair-free zone say that they find a shaved pubic area more aesthetically pleasing, find the smell of the private parts more pleasant, and shaving the pubic area makes sex more intense. The erotic author Sophie Andresky (“Vögelfrei”) also prefers hairless intercourse and describes the advantage as follows: “Moisture is distributed better, and when two clean-shaven genitals come into contact, it slides and slips very nicely.” She also explains that oral sex without hair between the teeth is much more pleasant for the partner. In addition, you can bring variety to the love game with different hairstyles of the pubic hair.
Tip: The term “shave the vagina” (which seems to be Googled by a lot of people) is factually incorrect. Actually, the outer area of the vagina with the labia and co. is the vulva. It should actually be: shave the vulva!
The disadvantages of intimate shaving
Shaving the intimate area is very quick. But unfortunately the hairs come back after two days and you have to shave again. In general, shaving has some side effects: In addition to the risk of cuts, many women tend to develop unsightly skin irritations such as pimples, the so-called razor bumps. Burning, inflammation or ingrown hairs can also result from this type of hair removal. The result: the skin in the pubic area not only looks ugly, it also itch after shaving, for example when the irritated skin rubs against tight jeans. In addition, the hair-free zone offers an optimal entry point for pathogens if there are small razor bumps. Genital warts or small eczema, for example, can be the result.
Instructions: This is how the right intimate shave works
Proper shaving of the intimate area depends on where hairs are to be removed. Some shave the intimate area completely, while others only depilate the hair that would flash out of the bikini – the so-called bikini zone. In general, the inner labia are much more sensitive than the outer ones. So you should really be very careful there.
