Ever heard of a merkin? It's a pubic hair wig. Ppl wear them when they feel insecure about not having *enough* pubic hair. In Japan, one company produces the Night Flower, which is reportedly popular with young school girls who have to go on overnight trips with their peers and skittish new brides. In the States, they're available in sex shops.

Just a tidbit of info to ponder if you're ever wondering whether you should have your pubes or not. In a way, it says some folks never quite appreciate what they've got

I've indeed heard of these rather exotic hairpieces, but, er, how do you hold a wig on down there? Do they come in different styles and unusual colours? And why is there a baking chocolate brand named after them? Mysteries of the Bush . . .

Milke, my guess is that you attach them in the same mysterious way that males attach hair replacement things to their bald head, or fake chest hair to their chest, or fake moustaches to their faces.

But then, imagine you're busy with a partner----and your pubic hair wig comes off. Hm. I think this would be a bit harder to explain than the wonderbra thing.

lol, Alaska. "...imagine you're busy with a partner----and your pubic hair wig comes off. Hm. I think this would be a bit harder to explain than the wonderbra thing." (I forgot how to do a quote so I copy/pasted it. That was Alaska's quote, by the way)

Merkin. That's interesting. I've never heard of anyone wanting more pubic hair, but that's interesting. What do you do with more? Compare it with your friends'? Hm..

Heh heh.
This would be an interesting scene in the bathroom. Minding your own "business" when... whoosh... "hey, could you hand me my pubes?"
Well... that's not something I would do... I prefer less so goo doesn't get caught in it. Plus, if it gets too long I tend o have this wierd bumpy looking pattern on my bathing suit. I'm not worried about what anyone thinks of my pubes, so far only I see em! So, I really see no reason to wear an umcomfortable wig... are you really so worried that the person who you are going to sleep with won't like you if you don't have enough pubes? Otherwise, I just find this really funny....

You know, that's actually the key of it: SO MANY people come here worrying about shaving their pubic hair and act as if it's the most important issue ever, and well, thinking about the opposite: worrying about too little pubes, just shows how ridiculous it ALL is, doesn't it?

i could imagine say a very late blooming 15 yo who has to take group showers after PE and who gets teased about his lack of development might be interested in such a thing, but imagine the ribbing he would get if it were ever discovered. then again i would imagine that such exotic hair peices would only be sold at sex shops, most of which don't allow those under 18 to enter, which would sort of present a catch 22
