Body Hair: You're Doing It Wrong

If there are two things I know about body hair, they're that 1) it's hair and it grows out of your body; and 2) no matter what you're doing with it, you're a terrible person. That's pretty much where my knowledge ends. Our culture's messaging on body hair is so convoluted and politicized and contradictory at this point … » 7/17/13 1:00pm 7/17/13 1:00pm

This Is What We Talk About When We Talk About Pubes

We'll probably be discussing pubic hair until there's a nuclear apocalypse and all the hair burns off our bodies. And with our skin frying in the sun, one woman will turn to another and say, "Well, I'm dying — but at least I look tan." At least that's how it feels to read yet another article about pubic hair, how much… » 6/14/13 6:00pm 6/14/13 6:00pm

In Which Hoda Kotb Discusses the Shape of Her Pubic Hair on Live TV

This morning on Today, while discussing personal grooming, Kathie Lee said she believes landing strips are "just wrong." Of course, she said this before finding out that bestselling author and Peabody Award-winning journalist Hoda has one. Apparently KLG just does minor grooming of her garden.

Ambitious DIY Pube Grooming Could Land You in the ER

People are apparently awful at removing their own pubic hair. Maybe because it's so hard to get a good angle for a decent view down there? Whatever the case, a new study shows that the number of pubic hair grooming-related emergency room visits have increased five times over between 2002 and 2010. » 2/08/13 11:50am 2/08/13 11:50am

Thanks To Brazilian Waxes, Crabs Are an Endangered Species

When salons began ripping the hair out of follicles on women's labia and anuses until their privates were completely bald, they probably never knew they were contributing to the fight against one of the most contagious sexually transmitted infections: pubic lice. However, doctors are linking Brazilian bikini waxes with … » 1/14/13 1:45pm 1/14/13 1:45pm

'Do You Prefer Bald or Bushy?' The Pubic Hair Debate, in Insane…

We all have different preferences for how we maintain our pubic hair. Some like to wax, some like to trim, some like to leave it au naturel, but, regardless of what we choose, all of us — ALL OF US — can come together on one thing: We want to see our story (or, at the very least, the story of our pubes) acted out by… » 8/17/12 11:20am 8/17/12 11:20am

Is Pubic Hair Coming Back Into Fashion? [NSFW]

New pictures of Dutch model Saskia De Brauw in vintage Versace jewelry, stilettos, and nothing else, shot for the magazine Industrie are notable for one thing: they actually show her pubic hair. While toplessness is practically a staple of fashion photography, a frank depiction of pubic hair — or even just the… » 12/20/11 6:30pm 12/20/11 6:30pm

The Care & Grooming Of Your Nethers

Welcome to Jezebel After Midnight, in which we indulge in sexy sex talk.
At dinner last night, my friends and I got into a conversation about bleached assholes. Anal bleaching has been around for a while, but still — when someone you know encounters a lightened bung hole, it does raise an eyebrow. (One place that… » 5/25/11 12:03am 5/25/11 12:03am

Christine O'Donnell Now A Feminist. Sort Of.

Christine O'Donnell, meet Krystal Ball, who knows a thing or two about how to play the publication of "embarrassing" photos or material. But judging from O'Donnell's response to the publication of her ladybug-costumed makeout, maybe she already knows what's up. » 10/29/10 10:54am 10/29/10 10:54am
