Love your lips

Salon has an interesting article on the background to several online projects to encourage women to be proud of their labia, and shun the ‘barbie doll’ innie aesthetic that is common in porn. As I posted recently, labiaplasties are on the rise, perhaps in part spurred by the increase in pubic trimming leading to increased self-consciousness about labia size.

The Large Labia Project, run by Emma from Australia, is “all about showing the beauty of large, long, thick, fleshy vulva”, while the Pussy Pride Project, run by Molly in the UK encourages women to join in a “celebration of the beauty that lies between a woman’s thighs in an attempt to make women feel more accepting”.

Here at pubicstyles, we celebrate all varieties of vulva, from the innie to the outie. This blogger’s partner has dark, fleshy, protruding labia minora, and I love her that way.

Since my post on labiaplasties, I’ve tried to feature full lipped models in my selection of images wherever possible so that visitors will see the beautiful variety of nature, and not go away with the impression that there is some ideal vulva, and that the ideal is a hairless clamshell. (Not that I have anything against the hairless clamshell look either!)

So to show our solidarity with the cause of natural labia, here is a selection of pubic styles featuring beautiful larger lipped ladies.

Perfection vs reality

In an ideal world of pubic styling, our lines would always be straight, and the hair would only grow back when we’re ready for a new style. Our pubes would look as perfect as the two models on the left.

Reality sets in

Perfection vs reality

But the reality is that it’s difficult to get perfect geometry when shaving; skin stretches, shaving cream obscures the view, razors are an imprecise tool. And of course, hair never stops growing, so within a week you’re looking like the two models on the left.

What’s to be done? How much time are you prepared to spend on perfecting and maintaining your pubic style?

Celebrity pubes in the news

Ok, not exactly hot off the presses (the article is from a few months back) but here’s an interesting article that ranges from Kate Middleton’s ‘bottomless’ paparazzi pics and the ensuing criticism of her royal rug, to various Harry Potter stars’ views on pubes, and an interesting insight as to why Kate Winslet had to don a merkin for the nude scenes in ‘The Reader’. Enjoy!

Rear view

At the risk of my pictures getting too gynecological, I felt I ought to do a post covering a sometimes neglected, but important aspect of many pubic styles… the view from behind. As a guy, the big thrill for me when my partner does a style like the top-knot (like the model on the left), or Bermuda Triangle (like model number 2), is the fantastic view when she shows me her behind.

Especially with the Full Monty, I’d say it’s the rear view that’s the icing on the cake.

But it’s a tricky area to shave by yourself, especially without the aid of a mirror, and it’s easy to miss patches of hair near Biffin’s Bridge, as the model on the right has done. And that’s not good.

So please take extra care not to leave some undergrowth in the back yard if you want your pubic style to really shine.


In the pictures below, the four models have shaved, waxed or trimmed their pubic hair to the barest hint of a bush. By just stopping short of the full Sphinx, they highlight the line of the lips, leaving a subtle sign pointing to the center of pleasure, the clitoral cluster. They are the minimalists!

Wikipedia: “Minimalism is any design or style in which the simplest and fewest elements are used to create the maximum effect.”

Japanese pubic styles

Pubic styling is not in the mainstream in Japan to the extent that it is in the west. Despite its infamous reputation as the home of lolicon, cosplay, tentacle porn and other perversions, Japan is still at heart a modest and conservative society. Mothers commonly bathe with their children, any domestic vacation is likely to revolve around visiting public hot springs, and families live in close quarters, so women are often reluctant to cause a stir with radical pubic hair trimming.

Perhaps that explains the fact that the most commonly seen pubic trim is the stealth style, aka the ‘top-knot’ or chon-mage. This style is not immediately obvious to the casual glance. While Japanese porn does feature plenty of shorter trims, and also plenty of ‘full monties’, those are not very often seen at the public bath house. And black hair against a pale skin makes the ‘white tiger’ a difficult style to carry off.
