The May 2010 issue of Cosmopolitan is the "sexy" issue, much like every other issue every year. But there's a twist: This issue comes with guidelines for giving yourself a Brazilian wax… And four stencils for your pubic hair.

You'll need a mirror, hot wax, a razor, and anti-ingrown cream, naturally. But the text under "Step 2" reads: "Punch out your favorite shape, hold it up to the center of your V zone, and trace around it with an eyeliner pencil…"

That's right: On the very next page, perforated bikini-line stencils are tucked into the magazine:

Your choices: "Love Triangle," "Sweetheart," "This Way For Fun" (arrow), and the ever-popular "Landing Strip."

You know, mixing hot wax, paper stencils, and lady bits — while trying to read — seems like a painfully bad idea. It's understandable that the Cosmo editors want to get close to their readers, but if you want to get that intimate with our pubes, you're going to have to buy us dinner first.

One thing I'm curious about is how many dudes do stuff like this?

I'll tell you why:

On my 40th birthday my party was hosted at a local pub owned by my friends. When I got into the bar the bar staff told me that if I would spend at least two hours in the bar buck naked my entire bar tab for the weekend would be covered by them.

This seemed like a bad idea at first, but flash forward three hours and many vodka shots later and I took them up on it.

Needless to say lots of photos of that party were taken and ended up on Facebook and various blogs including several of me dancing naked on a table while chugging a bottle of gin..

I didn't get one comment about my beer belly, complete drunkenness or penis size but did get about a dozen comments from women asking why I didn't trim my pubes/manscape.

My thought was, "Guys actually do that?"

And, I've never found the right moment to ask my guy friends if they trim their pubes.

So, ladies, what's your experience, do a lot of guys do stuff with their pubes?
