The Revised Birthday Suit

The Revised Birthday Suit
(New York Times)
“For centuries, humans have equated hairiness with beasts and hairlessness with beauty and femininity,” said Nancy Etcoff, a psychologist at Harvard Medical School who is the author of Survival of the Prettiest: The Science of Beauty. “There’s also an erotic, sexual component to hairlessness because your skin is more sensitive when it’s more exposed. Women today are emulating porn stars who have no pubic hair, and I think men like it.”

Speak for yourself, woman!

I also find it troubling slightly more than the novelty and extra nudity of it excites.

We have enough arbitrary social and fashion contraints already.

I think you beat me to the topic by a few hours today but I also posted in the genre, as it were: illustrations of differing vaginas.

Re: Pedophilia:- But ... but ... you can't shave a vagina, only a vulva.

You make an excellent point and it shall be amended soon.
