Woman Shares Brilliant Update After Her Boyfriend Insisted That She Shave off Her Pubic Hair
To pube or not to pube, it is a very personal question. One that many women feel forced to make after the men in their intimate lives share their opinions about their pubic hair.
If social media and those vocal enough to express their personal grooming habits are anything to go by, it seems most people prefer women to be clean-shaven “down there”. But not everyone holds that opinion, instead opting to leave things be except to give the lady garden a little trim here and there.
A woman sought advice from Reddit about her boyfriend’s insistence on her privates being bald as a coot despite her opening up to him very early on in their relationship that shaving just wasn’t her thing.
“I have made it a point since I was 20 to tell my partners pretty soon into us hanging out that I do not shave or wax my pubes,” she explained.
“I used to do it all the time when I was a teenager and it left me with a bunch of ingrown hairs, rashes, and pain. I realised I was solely doing it for the other person and I preferred some hair on myself. I do trim though. I tell a potential partner/hook-up as soon as sex comes up that if they’re not okay with dating someone with pubic hair, I respect that but we’re just not compatible.”
Fair enough! Everyone makes choices and if pubes aren’t your bag then move along, sir.
The problem arose when she began dating someone named Alex. The woman explained her stance and he accepted it, saying that pubes did not bother him at all.
Narrator: “Oh but they did bother him. They bothered him a lot.”
Alex, who never made the effort to manscape himself, pestered his girlfriend for months to shave after all his mates said that hair on women looked “gross”. Becoming tired of his constant comments that it was weird that she didn’t shave, the woman kept repeating her initial stance — she prefers to keep her pubes and if that’s an issue, it is not her problem but his.
This brings our heroine to the internet to consider her options for moving forward in her year-long relationship with the pube-hating Alex.
After much discussion with her boyfriend and plenty of consideration, she posted a wonderful update.
She wrote: “He said that every girl he had been with before me was “clean” (his words) and that he decided to put up with hair because he wanted to date me but that truthfully it grossed him out every time he saw it.
“He also said that his friends “would have never considered dating a woman who didn’t take care of herself” (again…his words) but that he wanted to look past the physical since he thought I could be special. I was pretty shocked, to say the least.
“Long story short, I ended things. I know it may seem frivolous or petty to some people but to me, it went beyond his preferences for pubic hair. He annoyed me with it for months and stuck to a stupid argument instead of being honest with me. To me, that shows immaturity. He’s 25. Not 19. That’s not a quality I want in my partner. Oh and also, I’m not sleeping with someone who thinks having pubic hair makes me “gross” and “unclean.”
TL;DR: kept the pubes, ditched the man.”
Bravo, sister! Love that for you!
