A rise in pubic hair grooming injuries teaches us to be way more gentle down there


It might be time to consider going 70’s-style where the sun don’t shine.

A recent study done by JAMA Dermatology shows that 25.6 percent of adults in the U.S. who groom their pubic hair have experienced injuries as a result of shaving, waxing, or other techniques. More than half of the common injuries were cuts, followed by burns, and rashes.

Yikes.

Most likely due to unrealistic beauty standards for women, the study shows 85 percent of American women between 18 and 65 keep things trimmed and tidy down there, whereas only 66 percent of American men do the same. Of these numbers, 27 percent of women have experienced an injury compared to 26 percent of men.

Please be careful. Steady hands, people.

It may seem like no big thing, but 1.4 percent of people reported seeking medical attention because of these pube-related afflictions. This is an increase from 2002 to 2010, in which there were approximately 11,704 visits to the E.R. because of grooming.
