At a time when most women are going for a bare look around their private parts, few may think about not shaving as being advantageous. But can removing pubic hair regularly deprive women of several benefits?

Gynaecologists explain that while considered unhygienic, pubic hair actually protects the skin and keeps infections at bay. They further show how hair down there can attract sexual partners since they trap pheromones.

 

It doesn’t end there as pubic hair can keep genitals warm by controlling temperature and that may be good for sex as it prevents heat loss from skin. Retaining heat also helps men maintain an erection for longer.

The hair is also a protective barrier for the vagina as rubbing skin together during sex can get painful. The pubic hair can be a buffer during intercourse and act as cushioning while exercising.

One more thing that needs to be pointed out is the risk of an injury when one is grooming pubic hair.
