Ladies, Here Are 10 Reasons You Should Ditch Hair Removal And Keep Your Pubes As Is

Of course, shaving is a personal choice! Some people enjoy up-keeping their bodies in this way, but sometimes.. it's just too much. Here are 10 reasons you should consider staying au naturale.

1. It's better for your health! 

First, there is a reason you have body hair. It protects you from bacteria and other environmental things that can cause infections or throw off your pH balance. This has been crafted over thousands of years of evolution to give you the perfect defense system down there. Don't take it for granted! Also, it puts you at a higher risk of contracting certain kinds of STDs because your skin is fully exposed to the elements. Hair adds this extra layer of protection and shaving it off can spread around topical/skin diseases.

2. It helps you find a mate.

It's a true fact that this hair actually releases pheromones. Pheromones are the very hormone that makes humans attracted to each other and can be found in hair. Scientists also believe this has to do with the fact that we sweat, which gives off certain oils that our hair follicles hold on to. Gross, but you're actually more desirable with this hair. It also signals in a deep part of our brain that our bodies are physically matured, which makes us more interested in relationships.

3. Razor bumps? No.

Regardless of your preferred method of hair removal, skin irritation is going to happen either way. Razor bumps, tender skin, redness, etc. are all results of hair removal. Keeping your body just the way it was intended to be not only looks better, but feels better. The skin down here is also typically way more sensitive and littered with nerve endings, making anything that much more painful.

4. This hair actually helps regulate your body temperature...

The body is crazy, man. We already talked about how hair follicles help with sweating and release oils, but what happens after? Well, once these oils have evaporated off your skin, it cools down your skin! This can keep you cool in the warmer months, but your hair also keeps you warm in the colder months. Imagine having a bald head in the winter with no hat on? No thanks.

5. No shaving means no itching.

Let's be real, nothing is worse than feeling that strong itch when you're out in public somewhere. The days of your hair growing back just consist of constant itchy feelings and the way it rubs against the hem of your underwear is all types of wrong. Not to mention, when you scratch, it only causes those micro-wounds to get bigger. You're also exposing that area to bacteria from things your hands were touching all day, which just isn't a good combo.

6. It saves you money.

If you added up what you spent on razors or waxing sessions a year, you'd probably faint. When you are choosing to go more natural, you typically save money. Not having to buy those big packs of razors every month? Not having to shell out fees and tips at a salon to remove it? Those things add up and you'll be able to go buy yourself something nice this holiday season with the money you saved on leaving your body the way it's supposed to be!

7. No pain needed!

With great shaving, comes great responsibility. And frankly, a responsibility I don't want to deal with. When you aren't shaving, you don't have to encounter the ever looming threat of ingrown hairs. Going natural also is completely painless! You go through exactly zero (0) pain when you choose not to go through some type of hair removal. No pain, no irritation, no tenderness, no ingrowns, etc.

8. It provides natural lubrication! 

Ya know, when you're ready. Of course. It protects the most sensitive part of your body from the harsh realities of friction. That can really hurt you down there and hair helps to eliminate this problem. It saves your girl from redness and also pain the next day. When you don't have this barrier, things can get pretty irritating. Literally.

9. Shaving is so annoying.

Forgetting to shave is annoying. Have you ever shaved one leg and not the other because you were in a rush? Hair removal is a process, sometimes a long one. And we shouldn't have to fork over our precious time to remove the hair. Not only that, but one little slip when you're in a rush can cause a pretty painful ending of blood and bandaids. You also probably do this weekly or bi-weekly when you could be doing something way more productive. All those hours in the bathroom add up!

10. It's completely your choice.

Yes, I am on the pro-hair side, but that doesn't mean you have to do anything! If you're willing to deal with all the side effects of removing this hair, go for it! You're a stronger person than I am, honestly. You can do whatever you'd like with your body hair; take it all of or make some cool designs out of it! Just remember to never do things because a partner or loved one tells you to.

You should be able to feel comfortable in your body, and your hair!

My Parents Didn’t Tell Me To Stay Pure Until Marriage, I Made That Decision On My Own

So, please respect my decision.

As we evolve into a more open and accepting world, the one thing that is getting less taboo is sex. It's not something that is talked about behind closed doors. It's something that is on the television screens and easily accessible on our phones. People talk about it and promote it like it's small talk. It's so hard to escape, especially as a young adult.

To say that I am staying pure until marriage is a very uncommon thing, at least in my opinion. Sure, I have friends who are in the same boat as I am. But, even at a Christian college, sex is everywhere and most people are partaking in it. However, I decided to not.

Growing up, my parents never told me to stay pure until marriage directly. I went to church and heard about it in sermons. I knew that by keeping myself pure until marriage, I would enjoy it more knowing that I waited for my future husband. I understand that some people may not agree with me on this topic, but here's why I am saving myself.

1. I want to know that the man loves me.

For me, I want to have sex with someone that I love. Now, you may defend this with the fact that your boyfriend loves you. That's great. But, dating isn't always a sure thing. Boys (and girls) can say that they love you, just to get in your pants. And, they will. It happens all the time. And, because you are blinded by love, you will end up giving in and doing it. But, see, I don't want to be blinded by love. I want to know that the person I am with, is with me forever. By making the biggest commitment aka marriage, that is a clear sign that they love me and want me forever. This is a good example of actions show more than words do. They can say they love me, but when they showcase that love, that's when I know it is real.

2. I want to give all of me to one person.

I heard this great example my senior year that discusses this exact thing. For someone like Hugh Hefner, who was with HUNDREDS of women, when he got older, he said he didn't feel anything anymore when it came to sex. He was numbed by the whole experience. It wasn't pleasurable or for love. By having sex with countless women, he had given a little part of himself to each of them, until he had nothing left. Therefore, by saving myself for one person, they would be getting all of me. As a whole. 100%. This is special because no one else has that except for my future husband.

3. The idea of getting pregnant scares me because of the lack of security.

For the past three generations in my family, they have all had children young. 15, to 17, to 20 years old. Blinded by love. Manipulated by their hormones. They had sex and got pregnant. To see not only 1 woman, but 3 women in my life go through that, I know how difficult it is. You're a kid yourself. Personally, I do want children. However, I have so many dreams and goals for myself. I want to graduate from college. Get a good career. Travel. Fall in love. A lot of that can be halted by a child. I don't know if I would get to achieve everything I want to, especially if I would have to raise the child alone (which usually happens). So, by waiting for marriage, I am using the biggest form of birth control.

4. There's no comparing, if you have only been with one person.

Now, this is different for every relationship. However, everyone feels insecure or uncomfortable when it comes to dating and relationships. Knowing that someone has had sex prior, you wonder if you are shaping up or doing better than the previous. By only having sex with one person, it relieves the stress of comparison.

5. It brings me closer to God.

One important lesson I have learned from friends, college, and personal experience, is that relationships (when it isn't built on God), you tend to stray away from Him. Therefore, by making my relationship with God stronger, I fall in love with Him first. Then, I am capable of loving a boy and committing to something like marriage and sex.

So, no, my parents never convinced me to stay pure until marriage. It was my own decision. I have reasoning for staying pure and it's my choice. So, please stop shaming virginity in the 21st century, because I'm not shaming you if you aren't one.
