I will mention some of the side effects of trimming or shaving your pubis later in this article. But for now, let’s see why almost all women do it at regular interval and why bare skin is so great:

  • Neat & Sleek Look!

Except for a few, every woman and man agrees to the fact that a freshly shaved pubic area looks neat and attractive. Among all those reasons, this fact alone contributes to almost 90% of why women shave that area.

No matter what you read in those feminist magazines, men, who like a bushy area down there are rare (in fact, don’t exist). A freshly shaved pubic area is a BIG turn-on for almost every man.

Your partner will be able to see pretty much everything when it’s razor-shaved or at least trimmed down there. Check out those electric pubic trimmer to get the job done effortlessly.

Women don’t like bushy private parts too. A cleaned and shaved pubic area makes women feel good about themselves too.

  • Cultural Acceptance

There was a time when it was the other way around. But I am talking about ancient times. And in that ancient times, there was some sort of grooming fashions as well.

Nowadays, a shaved pubic area is the only acceptable culture around the world. In the U.S., this is the only way!

In fact, as per the study in 2016, 84% of women have shaved their pubic regions regularly. It’s always a good idea to follow the main-stream.

  • Prevents Pubic Lice

Though highly irregular, imagine your partner notices mice down there! It’s horrible! The most effective way to make pubic lice homeless is depilation. There are not better ways to get rid of lice.

  • Increased Sensation

Skin to skin touch during intimacy increases the sensation a lot. Women and men both feel more sensation in the pubic region when it is freshly shaved.

Almost every man and woman agree to this fact. It makes women closer to men and truly makes a bigger part of something great.

It’s a generally agreed fact that both women and men feel more pleasure during intercourse when their pubic hair is freshly shaved.

That’s just one of the few benefits of trimming pubic hair female that should encourage every woman to shave their private regions.

Of course, there are a few who prefer sensation with pubes. But that’s just some exceptional cases.

  • Eliminate Odors

There are plenty of skin-friendly shaving products with pleasant smells. Shaving your pubic hair with such products remove the foul odors generated from the internal parts of your genitalia.

  • A Big Confidence Booster

Not just for physical intimacy, we need confidence for everything else in our life. If you think exposing body hair is preventing you from exploring the world or even sex, just shave it!

Personal grooming is a BIG confidence booster. Whether it is waxing or shaving. It’s a universal fact. However, waxing the pubic area is a good idea since you don’t have to think about pubes growing back anytime soon.

For the majority of women, waxing or shaving private parts gives a huge confidence boost. And you should not be holding it back.

Disadvantages Of Pubic Hair

  • Wearing leggings or swimsuits will be too intimidating. Nobody else, but you will feel uncomfortable yourself.
  • Fear of being physically close suddenly.
  • Pubic hair just invites the pubic lice to live down there.
  • It contributes to a bad odor in that region.

Side Effects of Shaving Female Pubic Hair

Women don’t shave their private parts for any health or medical reasons. That’s because there are no such benefits of trimming your pubic hair.

On the contrary, your pubic hair protects your genitalia from friction and infection. They are there for a reason, right? Without your pubis, your genitalia is totally defenseless and susceptible to viruses and bacteria.

Anyhow, we just shave it just to feel good about ourselves. However, it comes with some side-effects that you should be aware of.

Later in this article, I will share some tips on how to mitigate such side-effects. But first, let’s check some problems of removing pubic hair:

  1. Annoying Razor Burns

If you are someone who shaves your legs, arms, and private parts – you are quite familiar with the razor burns. It’s so annoying and it does not go away anytime soon!

Things will get serious if you don’t use any shaving cream or gel. Also, using a dull razor will triple the effect of your razor burns.

  1. Pain From Waxing

I don’t but a lot of women prefer waxing down that road. Of course, it’s better than shaving your private parts with razors. But it comes with severe pain too.

If you have never done waxing before; watch some YouTube videos on waxing and see their reaction. It’s not for everybody! Definitely, not for me!

But the good thing about waxing is that it will take a longer time for the pubic hair to grow back and the pain goes away quickly.

  1. Ingrown Hairs

That’s how you get a red bump. Shaving your pubic hair with any forms like waxing, using razors, or any depilatory cream will lead to ingrown hairs.

It’s a situation where hairs get trapped inside your follicle and lead to painful red bumps. It’s a very common scenario for women with coarse hair. Ingrown hairs for your pubes is a painful experience.

  1. It Costs Real Money!

Whether waxing or using razors, personal grooming costs a lot. If you shave your hair, you will keep shaving at least twice a week.

That means spending a huge amount of money on either disposable razors or costly shavers for female private parts.

  1. Other Side Effects:
  • Nicks, cuts, and abrasions during shaving with razors or waxing.
  • Higher chance of contacting dermatitis from various shaving products.
  • Itching to female genitals.
  • Rash, stubble, and bumps.
  • Increased risk of viral infections from cuts and skin irritation.
  • Bacterial infections from rubbish razors.
  • Pimples and blisters.

Preferable Methods To Remove Pubic Hair

Although there are no health benefits of shaving your bikini area, we still have some convincing reasons to do it anyway. I just mentioned some of its side-effects as well.

Now, that you have all the information you need to make a good judgment, let’s check out some preferable methods to shave the bikini area:

  • Razor Shaving

Still now the most common and widely used methods to remove women’s pubic hair. Shortly, you will see some other ways to shave your private parts. But razor shaving is the cheapest among them.

Many women consider removing their pubic hair as their own business and they don’t need to take help from others. So, they prefer to do it yourself.

However, you still need to make a good investment in razor shaving since you have to buy shaving cream, razor, after-shave lotion, etc.

  • Waxing

The problem with razor shaving is that the hair grows back quickly and you have to shave it several times during a week. So, to solve the problem, many women prefer waxing.

Yes, waxing removes the hair from the root. So, it takes a longer time for the hair to grow back. If waxing needs to be done on your bikini line, you should do it in a salon or beauty spa.

A thin layer of liquid warm wax will be applied to your skin. Before the wax gets hardened, cloth-like material is placed on the warm wax.

The cloth strip is quickly pulled off once the wax gets hardened (it happens within a few seconds) and remove the hair from their roots.

Of course, waxing hurts a lot but it’s getting popular day by day among women.

  • Depilatories or Hair Remover Cream

If you want to avoid the pain of waxing but still want to get almost the same result, you can try the hair remover cream or any good-quality depilatories.

It is important to keep in mind that both the cream and epilator has to be of a higher standard because you will apply them on your bikini line.

Read the instruction very carefully and if you notice any redness, rash, or swelling – it means you are allergic to that hair remover cream.  Stop using that immediately.

  • Laser Hair Removal

A very expensive method to remove your hairs from the private area where a strong beam of light penetrates your skin to destroy the hair follicle. After 4 to 6 of such sessions, the hair follicle eventually falls off.

Only a professional certified in cosmetic surgery or dermatology should perform such a session.

  • Electrolysis

This is the extreme case where women remove their hair from their private parts permanently. You destroy the hair root permanently and you are done with shaving your hair forever!

However, this method takes a long time to completely destroy all those hair roots. If you are thinking about it, make an appointment with a professional salon where such electrolysis is performed and ask all your questions.

Safety Guidelines To Shave Your Pubic Hair

There are plenty of ways you can remove your pubic hair like trimming, shaving, laser-therapy, or waxing.

But if you use a razor or even an electric trimmer, you should follow the safety guidelines to minimize the side-effects:

  1. You need to see the area clearly you are about to shave. So, a hand mirror will come in handy to help you out in this regard.
  2. If you have long hairs down there, you should trim the area first before shaving. Always use sharp scissors or trimmer to trim and a new razor to shave.
  3. You need to soften the pubic hair first. To do that, you can soak in your bathtub for about 5 minutes. That way your skin and pubic hair will soften up and you will be able to shave them quickly and easily.
  4. I know many razor brands like Venus advertise that their razors don’t require applying any shaving gel or cream. Please ignore them. Apply shaving cream or gel made for women with a soothing agent like Aloe Vera.
  5. Instead of a dull blade or trimmer, you should use a bikini razor to shave your bikini area.
  6. Use your one hand to gently but tightly hold the skin, and use your other hand to shave that area.
  7. Slowly shave in such a direction that your pubic hair grows.
  8. Use warm water (not cold not hot) to rinse the area and pat dry.
  9. Apply some aftershave lotion made for women enriched with Aloe Vera when you are done shaving. You can use baby oil too if such lotion is not available at that moment.
  10. Never apply scented shaving products on your freshly shaved skin. There is a higher chance it will sing your skin.

Try to follow these above-mentioned tips in an orderly fashion.


As you can see, there are many benefits of shaving pubic area female if you know how to minimize the side-effects while shaving.

Everyone does it irrespective of those side-effects. And if shaving your pubis makes you confident and your partner happy, you should do it at a regular interval.
