what is your "hair-do" -- down there???

I'm curious because I live in Europe and EVERYONE at my gym - young and old alike are totally groomed down there - like landing strips or bald..... I was wondering if this is the norm in America and other countries... I'm sure someone will ask why I am looking but its something you can't help when the ladies are all walking around naked!

I'm not into pain, so I'm el-natural down there, I do nothing except clean the bush daily, and don't ever plan to do anything, live in the US.

I get waxed completely, but I don't think that is the norm as its called a brazilian wax not an american wax. I think its gaining popularity.

All natural. Hubby likes pubic hair and prefers I don't shave or wax and I'm HAPPY not to have to deal with the pain or mess.

I shave it all off every few days. Every day causes a bit of irritation, so I go for about 2 times a week. It's very smooth and nice. My boyfriend likes it shaved.

I've tried the Brazillian. Worst 90 bucks I ever spent. Painful, and didnt even get all the hairs off!

American, get waxed, all except tiny little strip. I only do waxing on special occasions (big trips, etc.). Otherwise I just shave. Waxing totally sucks. It is SO INCREDIBLY PAINFUL!

I just shave my legs. Every once in awhile I go in a bit further. I get ingrown hairs easily, so don't do that area too often. Upsidedown riangle shape. USA

I change it up depending on my mood and if I am in a relationship at the time. If I'm with someone I keep it trimmed close to the skin and I shave my bikini line and the "underneath", which can get in the way during oral. But I am perfectly comfortable letting it "grow out" otherwise. I have gotten a bikini wax - not a Brazillian, they left a generous triangle - but it was still painful, awkward and I don't think it was worth the money because she didn't do a very good job... I had to go back and shave where she waxed. I will say that I have gotten my legs waxed plenty and I love not having to shave for almost 2 weeks!

Boy - Europe sure has changed.

I shave the bikinni line and periodically trim it very short, but I hate itchy stubble, so I keep some growth. Crew cut I guess you'd say - lol!
