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 your… » 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 ever.… » 8/08/13 11:30am 8/08/13 11:30am

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

"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.

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

Terrible Things Await Women Who Use Men's Razors, Says Gillette

Cosmo is shedding light on a terrible problem in our society: Ladies who use men's razors.

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

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
