How to get rid of your pubes

Posted · Add Comment

Some girls can’t be arsed to spend time, money and effort getting their pubes off, and we salute them. But, if you’re like us, and are slightly addicted to the feeling of a bare vag, here’s a run-down of the different ways you can de-pube…

Shaving

The way most of us de-forest our lady gardens. It’s quick, easy and most importantly, painless. This method isn’t very long-lasting, though. Hair grows back a few days of shaving, although this varies from woman to woman.  Since shaving is just cutting the top of the hair instead of removing it from the root, it will leave dark dots under your skin and maybe even a shaving rash. The hair that grows back can be quite stubbly, like your man’s beard. Imagine kissing his stubbly face. That’s how he feels when he goes down on you post-shave. Noice.

Top tip for all those representin’ the razor: make sure you properly exfoliate before shaving, to max  out the smooth effect.

Epilator

Now, even those of you with a high pain tolerance should be prepared to potentially shed a tear (or cry like a baby) with this method. It’s kind of like plucking your eyebrows, except, you’re pulling out six or seven hairs at a time. OUCH. It might hurt, and leave your downstairs a bit red, but as they said, ‘no pain no gain.’ You’ll have a smooth vag for like two weeks, too. So worth the pain for sure.

Waxing

Some women swear by it, some would rather listen to Jedward on repeat for 12 hours whilst eating cardboard than go through it. Yep, it’s the infamous ‘intimate’ wax.  A Hollywood (every hair off) or Brazilian (the samebut with a landing strip of pubes) will set you back around £30, and on top of the cost, it bloody hurts. But, if you can handle the cons, the big pro is that you’ll be smooth as a baby’s bum down there for a month. If you’re unsure about going for a wax, check out our writer Yvette’s review of her first time getting a Brazilian. (hyperlink here.)

Hair removal cream

Hair removal cream ads make this method seem almost luxurious. But anyone who has lathered Veet on to their vag will know this is a LIE. Waiting for those five minutes to tick by, trying not to move because you don’t want to get the cream anywhere where it shouldn’t be, can be a bit unpleasant. But, on the up side, you’ll be smooth down there for a good few days. Also, it’s painless (as long as you keep the cream away from your inner labia- that shit burns.) Make sure you follow the instructions on the packet, and always do a patch test before using any new product.
