MUST READ! 6 Reasons Why You Should Not Shave Your Pubic Hair

Physinews Daily Health Tips: Shaving of the pubic hair to so many people,
is nothing new. A few sociological theories
have suggested that shaving of the pubic
hair has to do with cultural trends spawned
by certain hairless actors and actresses or
even a misguided attempt at hygiene.

The most common body areas shaved are
the underarms, legs, pubic area, eyebrows,
and face for females; the face, abdomen,
back, chest, groin, and legs for males.
While some people prefer wax, shaving is the
most common method used for the
underarms, legs, and pubic area.
Pubic shaving actually originated in ancient
Egypt and Greece when prostitutes had to
shave for both hygienic reasons and as a
clear sign of their profession. Although female
body shaving was established as the norm
between 1915 and 1945, pubic hair removal
did not actually gain a strong foothold until
the 1980’s.
Here are 6 reasons why you should not shave
your pubic hair:
1. Pubic hair helps control your body
temperature
We all know that hair helps regulate body
temperature, but how exactly? Hair follicles
help with sweating.
There is a sebaceous gland on each hair
follecule which releases oils onto the hair,
that in turn allows the oils go up to the skin’s
surface. When this oil evaporates, it cools the
skin because of its latent heat.
2. Pubic hair actually protects you Yes
The pubic hair protects you from diseases
and skin problems. Among other protections,
it helps to prevent foreign particles like dust
and pathogenic bacteria from entering your
body.
3. Pubic hair contains pheromones
Scientists are of the belief that pubic hair
retains s*xual secretions that are otherwise
referred to as pheromones. This is what
attracts us to each other. The body gives off
more pheromones as you sweat and those
secretions are retained in the pubic hair
regions.
4. Higher risk for private part warts
private part warts are located near or on the
private part areas. In a female, it is situated
on or outside the private part are the v**ina(female private organ)
cervix, or anus. In a male, that means near or
on the man-hood, scrotum, or anus.
Warts appear as bumps or growths. They
tend to be whitish or flesh colored. Many
times a person with private part warts
doesn’t know that he or she has it. If you
shave your pubic hair, you are putting
yourself at a higher risk of contracting private
part warts.
5. You are more likely to catch molluscum
contagiosum (viral infection)
Shaving or waxing your pubic hair increases
your risk of contracting a viral infection.
Research has shown that hairless private
parts may provide an opportunity for sexually
transmitted diseases like molluscum to take
hold, with shaving showing the strongest
association. Molluscum contagiosum is
spread easily, and it has been suggested that
the virus may have spread primarily through
self-infections caused by scratching skin
irritated by shaving.
6. It causes skin problems in your private
area
Removal of pubic hair naturally irritates the
hair follicles, leaving microscopic open
wounds. Frequent hair removal is necessary
to stay smooth, causing regular irritation of
the shaved or waxed area. Many doctors say
it is not unusual to find patients with boils
and abscesses on their private parts from
shaving as well as cellulitis, an infection of
the scrotum. Being on the private parts, these
skin issues are often more uncomfortable
than they would be on other parts of the
body.
For these reasons above, it is in your best
interest not to attempt pubic hair shaving, or
to put a stop to it if you are already in the
habit of doing so.
