A Strange Nostalgia

#MasturbationMondayIt is often stated that porn, it seems, has decided that women should be hairless from the eyelids down. Now, whether or not porn is actually responsible (I have my doubts as people are capable of determining their own preferences, without having them rubbed in their faces, as it were) it is a look that many women chose, for whatever reason, subscribe to. Now, on the subject of rubbing my face in it,  as a man who has spend a lot of time with my head between women’s thighs, I will admit that there is something particularly appealing about going down on a lovely, smooth cunt; being able to explore every nook, every fold with my tongue as I take her (hopefully) on a journey to orgasm. I also know a few women who, having embraced the bare look, say that it increases the sensations for them, the friction on their clit is so much more intense because there is no barrier.

Now all of this is fine and good, and I would never tell anyone how they should, or indeed shouldn’t style their intimate areas but, damn it, I actually am very fond of pubic hair on a woman.

There! I’ve said it! I’m out and proud! I am a pube fan! I enjoy getting my nose tickled when I go gown on a woman.

Now that’s not to say I don’t have preferences; I do. My preference is for tidy, trimmed, short but not too short. If the lips are smooth, that’s an added bonus. But at the end of the day, I’ll take what’s presented to me. In a sexual career going back over quarter of a century, I’ve met all kinds of women with all kinds of styling; from wild and natural, to as bald and smooth as a cue-ball and, you know what? I’’e loved everyone of them.

But for me, pubic hair will always elicit fond memories.

As a randy teenager in the late 1980s, and an even randier young man in the early 1990s (OK, we’re talking mostly about my student days here), I used to experience a small feeling of triumph when, during the course of a heavy petting session, my fingers eventually worked their way down her body and sought out and found those soft curls; that triangle of hair that was pointing my fingers towards their goal. I used to (and still do if circumstances allow) run my fingers through that patch of hair, feeling it get progressively damper as I got closer and closer to her opening. When I went down on a girl, I loved the way those soft tufts tickled my nose. Yes, yes, there were those odd awkward moments when a stray hair lodged itself somewhere it shouldn’t, but that was just one of those things you shrugged off.

The first time I encountered a girl who had removed her pubic hair was a bit of a surprise. As I slid my fingers into her knickers, I was waiting for that customary contact; that furry reassurance that I was going in the right direction. Making contact with her clit, without first encountering anything to play with was, I’ll admit, a bit of a shock. Fortunately, she didn’t seem to mind that I’d gone straight there, and once I got over my sense of having missed out on something, I went on to enjoy myself with her, and her with me.

Since then, it seems the prevalence of smoothness continues to increase unabated, and the pubic bush seems to be heading towards extinction. Should this ever happen, I for one will certainly mourn it’s passing, if only for the memories of my younger days.

Oh, and for the record I keep my own short above, and smooth below. Well, you girls are no more fond of nature’s dental floss than we guys are…

  1. This is really well written. I trim/shave and it works for me. As Kayla stated she shaves and I do like it, just one more way we mesh. We all have our own likes and dislikes and there isn’t a think wrong with it. It is what makes the world go round.
    When I discovered the heightened sensations of being shaved when we fuck was an incredible endorphin high for me.

  2. I never even thought of shaving until I began to enjoy my sexuality (that is after leaving the ex). I must have done it as an experiment at some point. I never got around to shaving it all. I kept a full bush in front and shaved underneath. When I had my herpes outbreak, it was unimaginable to shave anything so I let it grow back somewhat. And then I had a discussion with my lover, mentioning I had stopped shaving, he’d probably realised. And asking what he preferred. He said he’d noticed, and did prefer the shaved look, but it was up to me. I went back to shaving, because the things he does wth his tongue and the rest are just too delicious to make him think twice before going down there 😉

  3. I love this. I started waxing it all off after my divorce and before I was attached to anyone – sexually or otherwise – because it was something I’d always wanted and never dared to do. I’d never even seen porn at that point (once upon a time, I was very sheltered, lol). Once I discovered the added bonus of how good it feels to me when we’re fucking or I’m being touched by a tongue or anything else, I knew I’d never go back. But it’s definitely about what the individual wants to do with THEIR body – definitely, as Mrs. Fever said, you do you…and for most people, I think the attraction to the person as an individual wins out most often over “preferences” over those kinds of details.

    1. I think we are all pretty much in agreement here. Our bodies, our preferences. If you share common ground, great, if you don’t, then respect each other’s choices. Even (or possibly especially) within a D/s situation, no one has the right to force someone else to do anything they don’t actually want to do.

  4. I am generally of the “You do YOU” school of thought when it comes to pubic hair. I, and only *I* get to decide what works best for my own needs. And whatever makes my partners most comfortable in/with their own bodies is fine with me.

    1. That’s exactly how it should be. If our personal tastes happen to overlap with our partner’s preferences, then that just happens to be an added bonus. If they don’t, and we occasionally chose to accommodate them, hen that is fine too. I am, however, a totally signed-up member of the “My body, My rules” club.


  5. Yep, natures dental floss is definitely not a good thing however I am not keen on the shaved look on men. Like you I like trimmed above and shaved balls and on women I really do like how pubes look, apart from on me. I am definitely a shaver and this experiment has only confirmed that for me

    1. And wouldn’t life be so boring if we all liked the same thing? I like how you can have a different preference for what you like on another woman and how you style yourself. My own styling comes from what I find most comfortable/practical. When you’re as generally hirsute as I am, unless I went for the full body shave/wax (not a snowball’s chance in hell), I’d look pretty silly with bald bits.


    1. It’s a personal choice, and while we have personal preferences, it’s really about what makes the person in possession (or not as the case may be) happiest/most comfortable that matters.


  6. It always makes me wonder why people blame porn for people wanting to be hairless. I started shaving years before I saw or heard that happened in porn. I shave because pubes are just too bloody uncomfortable, they’re hot, itchy and fingers or cock sliding between them just pulls and grinds them and leave you feeling far from sexy.

    1. I tend to find shaving (such as I do) can make me itchy, especially in warmer weather. Totally with you on the catch and pull thing though. One of the reasons I trim is to prevent the discomfort of an inadvertent erection when my pubes have got caught under my foreskin (apologies if you were eating when reading this). 😉
