The primary benefit of pubic hair is its ability to reduce friction during sexual intercourse. The skin in the area around the genitals is very sensitive. Pubic hair can naturally reduce friction associated with the movements during sexual intercourse and other activities wherein chafing may occur.

What is the biological reason for pubic hair?
Yes, pubic hair does have a purpose. Above all else, it lessens friction during sex and prevents the transmission of bacteria and other pathogens. There are probably other reasons why we have pubic hair, too. Everyone has pubic hair, but we all make different decisions as to what we do with it.
Is it healthy to remove pubic hair?
Some girls trim their pubic hair, or go to a salon to have a “bikini wax”; others prefer to shave just about every day, but most just leave it alone. It’s not necessary to remove the hair in this area to keep your body clean. In fact, there are no health benefits to removing pubic hair.
What are the benefits of not shaving pubic hair?
Here are some of the reason you might consider keeping your pubic hair:
- It provides protection against friction that can cause skin irritation in this sensitive area.
- It helps reduce the amount of sweat produced around the vagina.
- It helps block your vagina from the following bacteria and infections:
Is it more hygienic to have pubic hair?
“More women think shaving pubic hair is ‘hygenic’ [sic] despite greater health risks,” The Independent reports. A US survey found more than half of women who groomed their pubic hair did so for hygiene reasons, despite evidence that shaving pubic hair can make the vagina more vulnerable to irritation and infection.
Why are Pubes a different texture?
Marc Glashofer, a dermatologist and fellow of the American Academy of Dermatology, claims that the texture of pubic hair tends to be thicker and more coarse than hair on the rest of our body because of its origins as a buffer. “It prevents friction during intercourse that can cause skin abrasion and rashes,” he says.
Is it necessary to remove pubic hair before marriage?
If you plan to wax your bikini line, begin the process at least three months before the wedding. The thing about waxing such a sensitive area is it becomes less painful everytime you go—but the first time could result in pain, irritation and discomfort that you don’t want sneaking up on you on your wedding day.
Why does pubic hair grow so fast?
“We simply notice hair growth most, and the speed of that growth, the shorter the hair.” Part of the perception that your pubic hair grows much faster than the hair on your head may be due to the growth cycle it follows. With pubic hair—and other body hair—the entire process takes about 30 to 44 days, Dr. Hazen says.
Do pubes stop growing at a certain age?
As you age, your pubic hair, just like the hair on your head, will naturally start to thin and turn grey. Part of the aging process includes hair loss and the slowing of the rate of hair growth. Typically, hair in the armpits, chest, and pubic region will start to thin and turn grey later than scalp hair.
What is the purpose of underarm hair?
Armpit hair prevents skin-to-skin contact when doing certain activities, such as running and walking. The same thing happens with pubic hair, as it reduces friction during sex and other activities.
What is the purpose of leg hair?
Leg hair and arm hair developed to help prevent chafing so we could move around without causing friction.
Does pubic hair make you smell?
Hair also traps bacteria against your skin. In the vaginal area, that is both a good thing and a bad thing. You need your good vaginal bacteria to prevent an overgrowth of yeast, but when bacteria mix with the sweat and oil on your pubic hair, it can produce a smell.
Why do we have butt hair?
We tend to have hair in areas where scent is produced, and the hair traps your own unique scent, which can make you more attractive to mates (you know, way deep in our cavemen brains). Butt hair provides a layer to prevent chafing between your butt cheeks when you run or walk or do whatever.
Do guys like no hair down there?
Of the 500 men surveyed by Schick, 79 percent said they like neatened-up bikini areas, while 21 percent either don’t care or are turned off by it. (Of course, if guys want it so much, perhaps they should pick up the salon tab…but that’s another story!)
Do doctors care about pubic hair?
The truth is that your doctor and their staff do not care if you are clean-shaven or not. They are medical professionals. They know that hair growth is natural and normal. It doesn’t hinder their ability to do their job, and it doesn’t harm your health.
Why do I have white stuff on my pubic hair?
White Piedra White piedra is a fungal infection of the hair shaft. This infection is caused by a type of yeast known as trichomycosis, which coats the hair in a white substance. This type of infection can happen to any hair on the body, including eyebrows, eyelashes, mustaches, beards, and pubic hair.
