Pubic grooming has a high injury rate, survey reveals

An article in the UK’s Guardian discussed the results of a survey into injuries caused by pubic grooming. The article is full of fascinating details. For example, “the (survey) results reveal that 5,674 out of 7,456 participants reported that they had, at some point, groomed their pubic hair, with almost 67% of men and just over 85% of women saying they had done so… But the study also found that 27% of women and almost 24% of men came a cropper while tidying up their pubic hair, with 1.4% of groomers saying they had had to seek medical attention as a result. ” Yeouch!

Play safe, people!

Genital piercing is relatively new and uncommon in the West, but the practice has a long and widespread tradition in other parts of the world; mentioned in the Karma Sutra and apparently practiced by both me and women of the Dayak tribe of Borneo, who say “That the embrace without this contrivance is plain rice. With it, it is rice with salt.”

And indeed, clitoral piercing is not just an esthetic choice. Read the testimony of these women to learn about the pleasure a hood piercing may bring. Alison, 41, says “Once I got my clitoral piercing, I couldn’t believe what I was missing. I come multiple times now, even from penetration. The added stimulation is amazing…”

A few past contributors also have cool piercings to show off, such as this very recent one, and these, and also these.

But as with all body modification, practice extreme caution and research your subject well before choosing an experienced and qualified practitioner. And be sure to follow all the hygiene precautions afterwards.

K…, thank you so much for sharing.

How to do the ‘stealth shave’

I believe the style is sometimes called ‘the triangle’, but I call it the stealth shave, because it’s a pubic shave that can go unnoticed to the casual observer, say in a swimming pool locker room. Only your lover and your gynecologist will know it’s there. Or actually, not there.

Here’s a video of a young woman demonstrating how she gives herself the stealth shave, in the shower.
