There are as many differing opinions on the removal or maintenance of body hair as there are people with it, but sometimes those opinions surprise you. We spoke to 15 women–some friends, some we barely knew (which was exciting)–about what they do to their armpits, legs, upper lips and (especially) pubic hair.

Tom Ford is back!
Since his Gucci/YSL departure some terrible years ago, the Tom Ford woman has been stuck with eyewear and minor variations on his signature fragrance, Black Orchid. If you’re a well-heeled gentleman, however, you’ve probably just continued to enjoy his immaculate tailoring and supple suits without interruption and, further, we hate you. But there’s no need to be petty, because Tom has come home. More
Yesterday, I regaled you with tales of Brazilian bikini waxes gone wrong. While reading that, you no doubt noticed that I said I had scheduled one for this morning, and you’ve probably been all, “how did it go?!” allllll morning.
Well, it’s done, and I’m here to tell you, that was FUCKING HORRIBLE. More
I thought the big deal was that given that this is a show where the gentlemen have engaged in 1) hot-rub rimming 2) cosplay, and 3) that weird time Turtle and Drama had sex with the girl at the same … More

As a twenty five year old American female, I am acutely aware of the hullabaloo surrounding hoo-has. With summer upon us, and many talking of bald, even decorated vaginas, it’s easy to forget that some people don’t go in for … More

Perhaps you have already heard the story about John Ruskin and pubic hair. Perhaps not! Ruskin was married in 1848 to Effie Grey. Their union was said to be notoriously unhappy – mostly because Ruskin was never able to bring … More
