Pubic Hair Removal Patterns Of College Students (Infographic)

November 20, 2014 by Justin Lehmiller


Pubic hair removal has been the subject of a growing amount of research attention; however, surprisingly little work in this area has addressed the question of how men and women are similar or different when it comes to their pubic hair removal practices and preferences. How many people do it, why, what (if any) side effects are there, and how much pubic hair do they prefer on their sexual partners? A new study just published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine takes a look at these and other questions in a sample of college undergraduates. Check out the infographic below for a few of the key findings.
