According to an article in the UK’s Daily Mail, rising numbers of Asian women having pubic hair transplants to combat a hair loss condition called pubic atrichosis, which causes women to lack pubic hair.
The article quotes from this blog post, which states that in Korea, pubic hair is seen as a sign of sexual health and fertility.
I wouldn’t want to make light of the subject. Body shame that would make you seek out expensive surgery must feel awful. But how ironic that while in the West women are pulling out their pubes, the opposite is happening in Korea, where a sparse bush may be seen as less womanly.
Clinics that do the transplant service offer a range of pubic shapes, with the most popular being apparently ‘the shield’ and ‘the fan’, aka the classic pubic triangle.
Personally, I think the untreated ‘condition’ doesn’t look bad at all. Quite the opposite. In fact some women in the west would, and do, spend good money to get that look. Hairless ladies of Korea, be proud of your cute little muffs, and don’t let the social pressure force you into the doctors waiting room.
