Smile, you know where I'm headed or can at least guess.
I'm going to discuss shaving. Not the face or legs, or arm pits. I'm going more intimate.
I used to shave quite regularly the whole pubic region. I did it for me. Now not so often. Not sure why I used to shave since it caused issues.
Why have women decided that the hair we were blessed with at puberty is now offensive in our adult years? I know that my mom's generation either went all natural or mainly didn't shave above the knees.
Women who did adult films in the 80's didn't shave to the extent that they do now for the adult film industry. So why are we, who the majority claim to not like the idea of pornographic materials, trying to emulate the pre-pubescent type bodies devoid of pubic hair shown in the adult films?
Why are we trying to perpetuate the ideal that a woman's body should look like a little girls? What in blazes is wrong with hair?
I figure that as long as you keep yourself washed and without foul odors there is nothing wrong with some hair on the mons pubis or labia.
I fell to pressure the other day. Self-inflicted pressure. I shaved. I'm paying for it now.
A few years back I waxed it all off before a yearly pap exam. My GYN, a female, told me next time to use a clean razor blade instead of the same one that was on the razor. I corrected her and said the rash was from waxing. She apologized for her assumption and said I shouldn't try to remove the hair if the skin is that sensitive.
I had my eyebrows waxed only once. I broke out in a rash from waxing then too.
I've have used a electric razor and ended up in a rash.
I have used fresh out of the pack razor blades and ended up in a rash.
My skin does not like to be devoid of hair. The hair acts as a buffer from laundry detergent residues, perfumes and dyes that might be on the pantyliners (though I do buy the unscented ones) and any friction from clothing that might be a little tight like exercise clothing.
The other day after I shaved I put on clean exercise clothes and thought nothing of the bare skin until I was done exercising. Let me tell you that even a warm epsom salt bath didn't help all that much last night.
So tell, are there any other women out there who have sensitive skin like I do?
If you have sensitive skin do you shave?
How do you prevent the sensitive skin rash?
Is this beauty treatment really worth the pain?
