1. The Secret (Lady) Garden: Discover Your Pubic Hairstyle

    Livia Corsetti Josslyn Fishnet and Lace Bodystocking

    "Hair is one of the first big preoccupations of womanhood. It appears, unbidden, and so decisions must be made about it - decisions which signal to yourself, and the rest of the world, who you are." - How To Be a Woman, Caitlin Moran

    The way we style ourselves is our way of expressing who we are to the outside world, and to most of us, sending the right message is very important. So what about our most intimate areas? We spend a lot of time and money looking after the hair on our head, so what about "down below"?

    First impressions can make a huge impact, so it's important that the 'you' you choose to portray is the real 'you'. Finding a style which slots into your everyday life, as well as making you feel sexy in the buff, can be tricky. With lots of women believing that pubic hair is 'messy' and that our partners want us 'bald below' many of us end up shaving or waxing it all off.

    In fact there are tons of people out there who simply love body hair, not to mention enormous fetish communities who find body hair utterly irresistible.

    Lots of men and women believe that pubic hair is a sign of maturity and struggle to understand why any of us would think about shaving it off. Others find pubic hair a total turn-on and involve it in their foreplay activities. Mimicking the feeling of a feather tickler, try stroking, caressing and brushing each other's intimate bouffants for a gentle tease. The anticipation this kind of play creates can be intensely erotic, amping up your passions for seriously kinky continued play.

    If pubic hair isn't your idea of fun, getting a mouthful of 'dark curlies' when performing oral sex can be a bit of a distraction, and stopping to pick them from your teeth is a mood spoiler to say the least. Keeping yourself neatly trimmed can vastly improve oral sex for both partners, enabling easy access to your sweetest spots. Whether you fancy yourself 'the Empress of au naturel' or a 'silky smooth maiden', there are several simple ways in which you can keep your ladygarden looking lovely, without stripping it all off. In any case, could you imagine if all women had the same (head) hairstyle? Pretty boring huh?

    For those who prefer a less-is-more look, there are several ways to go about it. With so many kits available from supermarkets and pharmacies, experimenting with your pubic hair in the comfort of your own home has never been easier. No more booking appointments to visit the spa, finding a babysitter or showing your 'bits' to a stranger!

    Make pruning your pubes less of a chore and a lot more fun by including it as part of your foreplay adventures. Mutual shaving can be an extremely intimate and erotic experience for both partners. Let your lover cascade smooth shaving foam over you and slowly glide a sharp razor across your bare skin. Allowing your lover to shave you shows trust and openness within your relationship, and having their hands so close to your sensitive spots is a serious turn on. When the waiting becomes too much, let your lover have their wicked way with you!

      I really like the look of the line stencil but cannot imagine it actual working- it just doesn't seem practical!

      Hey zombiecpl
      Believe it or not, these little stencils are really effective. They have an ergonomic handle and rubber lining so it stays flush to your skin while you shave, even in the shower or bath.
      I'm sure it would be made a lot easier with plenty of shaving foam and a good razor though!

      I still get the dreaded shaving rash even with good foams and razors so it still wouldn't be any good for me a pretty pattern surrounded by the evil rash a turn off this is

      Hi Nicky, I also had problems shaving in the past - but I now use an electric shaver. No more problems - and I always finish with a natural moisturiser containing Aloe Vera to soothe everything.
