Merkin’ art


Vice magazine explores the creative possibilities of the pubic wig, or ‘merkin’, in this 2010 photo-shoot, featuring ‘Tuxedo Pussy’, ‘Carrot Pubes’ and ‘Ponytail’ among others. More of an art piece than practical proposition, since the merkins featured are big, bulky and rather tickly looking, but nonetheless worth a look.

Pimp your pubes

Incidentally, I understand that the merkin was originally devised by 17th century prostitutes who wanted to cover up their STDs. These days they’re more likely to see service on a Hollywood movie set. Or at the Burning Man festival.
