The Bush is Back!

If American Apparel shop windows are to believed, flared jeans aren't the only relic from the 70s that are coming back into vogue. There's plenty of reason to believe that the cultural tide is shifting toward a fuzzier embrace of fuzzy nether regions. But that's not to say things are shaping up to look exactly as they did during the hippie heyday.

Lately the media has been sprouting its fair share of headlines about the rise of the "Full Bush Brazilian". This is more or less what you think it is: a full bush on top, with hair below the pubic mound and butt crack completely stripped bare. This, for some, is like the best of both worlds. You get to have your lady garden primed for this weekend's hot hookup whilst maintaining your modesty and a dash of mystery.

The A-list factor is another indication. If the infamous Brazilian wax episode of Sex and the City taught us anything, it's that celebrities can be hugely influential in dictating our grooming habits. Gwyneth Paltrow, Madonna, Lady Gaga and Cameron Diaz have all come out in favour of the au naturale look. And Cameron Diaz from her self-help bible, The Body Book, was quoted as saying, “Also, let’s be honest: just like every other part of your body, your labia major is not immune to gravity. Do you really want a hairless vagina for the rest of your life?”

Waxing salons have yet to become extinct, but they're definitely observing a trend. According to pubic aestheticians surveyed by Racked in the US, there's been a noticeable decline in the number of women who come in asking for a full monty.

The Australian Study of Health and Relationships [2013] interviewed over 20,000 Australians and found that almost 80% of females under 20 had shaved or waxed in the last 12 months. This dropped to less than 50% for the over 40s.

That's not to say that the preference for a down-under with no bush will entirely go away for some, particularly when it comes to oral sex. A big plus for being bare down there is also the increased sensation during sex. In 2011, the Cosmetic Physicians Society of Australasia (CPSA) surveyed 516 women who had undergone permanent pubic hair removal. The survey found that 63% of the participants reported “feeling sexier” and 60% experienced “enhanced sexual pleasure”.

But it's also worth noting that the no-hair trend came into fashion at a time when internet porn was also on the ascent, and it's simply a matter of "camera visibility" logistics that hair might get in the way.

Finally, what about the blokes? With so much ink spilled over the particulars of the female mons, you'd wonder whether men are ever preoccupied with being "on-trend." If experience has taught us anything, it seems that keeping things neat and orderly betwixt the balls continues to be the polite thing to do.

Phillips conducted a global survey in 2010 and the Australian results found that one in four women find ungroomed pubic hair on men a big turn off. 23% of Australian women would like a bit of a trim, 20% like it neatly groomed and trimmed short, and 5% want it completely bare.

Guys, if you haven’t already, it might be time to invest in a nice pair of trimmers. It seems that guys have caught on to one nifty trick - a trim bush can add inches where it counts.

And let's face it, is au naturale really a deal breaker for the typical Aussie bloke once he's got you into his bedroom? Most are just happy that you want to be naked in the same room.

So what do you prefer? Bare or bush?

    I have been lucky enough to have met men who really don't mind either way. I mean some men have a preference, but they all tell me even if there is hair there, they will still lick me. I cannot always shave as it is not convenient for me, so it's nice to know if a man doesn't really care if you're hairy, trimmed short or shaved. However, I prefer men to be shaved or at least trimmed back very very short. I had a bad experience once where I got 2 long hairs stuck at the back of my throat for 4 hours. I gagged, coughed, tried everything I could to get it out. I nearly vomited. I then was so desperate that I tried to even swallow them by eating a piece of bread. That didn't work. FINALLY, after 4 hours, I hissed and coughed them up and both came up. Since that time, I have been VERY put off with hair around a man's cock and balls that I cannot suck anyone with longer hairs. I will still do the trimmed man, but not long, untidy hairs and I hate the look of long hairs just sticking out like he just got electrocuted. I mean come on men. What I find very frustrating is that men will tell me they prefer shaved women. I then asked them if they are shaved, and most men will say no, especially married men. I tell them well that's a bit unfair that you are expecting the woman to shave, yet you have long untidy hairs sticking out everywhere. They usually come back and say, well I don't mind either way then. It goes both ways. Some older men with grey hairs look really bad. They have long grey hairs just pointing out and all messy and very straight. A real turn off.

    I love the look and the feel of nice soft pussy fur. Running my fingers through it and then using my tongue to find the hidden delights in amongst the erotic forest adds to the mystery and enjoyment.

    No hair for me, maybe the odd landing strip. I've found most men like a ' hair free ' experience. I've never had anyone say 'geez I wish you had more hair ;), ', so for the women who are waxing etc good for you but I've only ever done it for myself anyway :)), it's soooooo much nicer :)

    I find a bit of hair above the pussy highly attractive - it sure gets me hard every time. Totally bald is a little too bare for me. It's nice to stroke her pubes while your going down on her.

    A woman's virility can be measured in many mays, her sexual stature, her eyes, her hair, her breasts and most certainly her mound. It is a highlight, an erotic lawn to welcome a perspective encounter. I find it very arousing. Sure you could shave it like a pre pubescent, as you could remove the welcome mat at your house. I prefer to slow down and smell the roses!

    i'm pleasantly surprised with most of the comments... i like half n half on myself like this current 'trend'...but i like to change it up every now and then like the hair on my head. i'd like to add that vaginas are like faces...not every style suits. i'd like to think that my pubes are arranged in a way as to flatter its 'features'. i'm a proud outtie and i think it looks terrible bald. like a tween thats popped out a few. give it a little mound or a border...or leave the lot. wa-la! an exciting and scrumptious little treat!
    like some lovely lass said earlier in the comments... im a woman not a child.
    i find the men and women who are comfortable with their own and others bodies (hair, sweat and stink etc) are ALWAYS better lovers... ;)

    "Shaven Haven" looks like a plucked chicken and is creepily associated with underage ... Not suggesting that the ladies go back to the "Wild Forest" look from 70's Porn ... However, there is nothing wrong with a "Landing Strip" or even a "Manicured Ladygarden" for that matter :)

    Met an Italian girl - the most beautiful thing I'd ever seen. Still hold a candle for her ever since. Her beautiful pubes ran all the way up to her belly button.
    Good God I think how lucky I was to admire them.
    Wish I'd married you Giovanna! I love you so much.

    Any man who can't stomach the idea of a little hair isn't worth my time - particularly if they're proud of their own hairy spuds and expect me to give them a headjob. I shave for most of my dates but sometimes I cannot be bothered. Here's an idea, *boys*, if you're worried about your girl's bush being smelly or crusty - have a shower with her. Nothing like a freshly washed set of uglies to bump.
  34. Biker67

    Sorry girls I love them bare or with a little fuzz, I don't care how clean you think you are hair traps smells and juices that turn crusty, which is a major problem for me, I am an any time any place any where type of guy which means if you have hair this would be a no way, it isnt happening especially if you want oral from me, something to consider if you enjoy spontaneity.

    Pro bush campaign of course the bush has its talk...nonetheless there's reason of why we have such beautiful pubic hair to add character to our bodies of growth... Like hello 0-12 we all were growing 13-20 we are experimenting 30-40 more confused than 0-10 so we start shaving although its not the shaving but the senslessness of society portraying illusions 40-50 funtimes of growth grey hairs salt n pepper quick fix remedy hair dye....and the years roll on so lets all be content with why the natural bush is with us too keep it clean and healthy hair protects shaving opens and invites... Bacteria and germs aha ask docs about sti most are clean shaven so why be embarassed with wat u equipped i have 5 grey hairs downstairs and few sproutinn upstairz love a natural hairy vagina over some clean shaven pussy resembling a young girl sad...so women let it grow free and wild and love it...

    As French/Latin origin I couldn't be more happy to read hairs are back in fashion. When you really like women, you like them as they are and they come with hair. As well hair are holding pheromones which is incredibly intoxicating on a woman with good hygiene. As one says, bald, looks, feels, tastes, smells like nothing.

    Some bush is nice, but neatly trimmed - absolutely! It evolved for a reason: to reduce friction during activity.

    Cannot STAND never groomed pubic hair on a man. It is gross when going down on your partner....AND it reminds me of Catweazle's beard........

    No hair at all is the only way to go . Hairy pussy , cock , balls and asshole is not very appetizing . Looks better , feels better , tastes better when it's smooth and sensitive .
    For me this full bush Brazilian thing is pointless and unappealing .
    I shave every 2nd day , wouldn't have it any other way .

    I think the most important thing here is that women do what makes them feel happiest. Whatever makes you feel sexiest, run with it. That should always be the priority.

    I leave it trimmed short on top and completely shaved everywhere else. I like the feeling of a tongue on my balls and in my ass so I think it's just polite to be completely shaven where the fun stuff happens :P

    As far as preferences for ladies go, I don't really think about it too much to be honest. As I said, do what you want for your own reasons. You'll never keep everyone happy, so it's far more important that you're happy with yourself first.

    Had a Vietnamese lady, who, despite having scantily furnished eyebrows, ( so, therefor tattooed ), had surprisingly lots of hair on her beautiful pussy. She would trim the mound regularly, & keep the lower hairs ( not too much down low, thank God ) in strict control. The best of both worlds, as she LOVED being licked literally to death!!
