University Professor Gives Extra Credit to Women Who Don't Shave

This is an interesting way to challenge gender norms! Arizona State University professor Breanne Fahs offers female students extra credit if they don't shave their arm pits or legs for 10 weeks and keep a journal about it. She offers a similar opportunity to men, asking them to shave from the neck down for the… » 7/04/14 1:00pm 7/04/14 1:00pm

The Va J-J Visor Is a Safety Hat For Your Clitoris

Here's my conflicted train of thought re: the Va j-j visor, a "a revolutionary, patent pending, disposable shield designed to help protect a woman's inner vulva area (inner labia, clitoris, and vaginal opening)" while removing pubes that's "soft and flexible and will naturally fit to the shape of your body, while… » 8/12/13 5:00pm 8/12/13 5:00pm

Stupid Hipster Beards Are Ruining the Economy

Ok, stupid hipster beards and workplace stubble are not ruining the entire economy, per se (or we have yet to prove that they are). What they are doing, though, is causing razor sales to decline across the board; in 2013, men's shaving is expected to lose its dominance in men's grooming sales for the first time… » 8/08/13 11:30am 8/08/13 11:30am

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… » 6/14/13 6:00pm 6/14/13 6:00pm

Kate Upton Tells Gillette’s Razor Bro That She Prefers Her Men Hairless…

"Ah, the age-old question," intones Gillete's Winklevoss-esque razor pitchman as he strolls up to none other than KATE UPTON!!! at a poolside cocktail party that threatens, at any moment, to turn into a Roman orgy. Well, what is it that women want, Gillette? What do Kate Upton, Hannah Simone, and Genesis Rodriguez… » 3/26/13 12:10pm 3/26/13 12:10pm

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

A Hairless Vag May Be Hazardous For Your Health

The concept of pubic landscaping is ubiquitous at this point — even men are getting (gag) "boyzillians" — but there are also signs that au naturel pubes are coming back in fashion. Maybe that's because the fear that others won't be sexually attracted to you if your vagina doesn't look like a twelve-year-old's kind of… » 8/10/12 1:00pm 8/10/12 1:00pm

The Shave-Cation: A Different, Dumber Kind Of Girlfriend Getaway

Kudos to Gillette for coming up with the cutesiest term imaginable for removing hair from your crotch. We appreciate the company's efforts to liberate women by providing "A shave so smooth you can skip a day or two," but we already took things to the next level last winter with our months-long Shave-bernation. » 8/15/11 11:40am 8/15/11 11:40am
