But times, they may be a-changing. According to an online poll by online pharmacy UK Medix, 51% of women are going full-on natural inside their skivvies. That means no styling, no grooming, and definitely, no hair removal. What's more, 62% of women polled say that their partner "prefers the natural look."
Now, to be fair, we're not clued into the variables of said poll; the relatively small sample of 1,870 women isn't necessarily representative of us all, and we're guessing that Baby Boomers and Millennials may have different pube-grooming tendencies. (We said may.)
Still, these researchers seem to be onto something, and there's something zeitgeist-y about the idea of letting one's hair grow free. As laid-back Hannah Horvath has replaced neurotic Carrie Bradshaw as HBO's resident It girl, and a you-do-you attitude has roared back into pop culture, a one-crotch-fits-all expectation feels outdated. Even if "everyone" used to go hair-free (and we'd bet decent money that "everyone" wasn't really everyone), it seems as though people are re-thinking the definition of "well-groomed" when it comes to our most private area. And, that's a good thing no matter how you tend to your own lady garden — or don't, as the case may be. (The Telegraph)
