The courage we desire and prize is not the courage to die decently, but to live manfully.
- Carlyle, Scottish Author and Philosopher (1795-1881)
Shaving and waxing of bikini lines could be behind an explosion in the number of cases of a type of sexually transmitted infection that causes unsightly warts, doctors are warning. Shaving the pubic region causes ‘micro-trauma’ of the skin, boosting the chance of a pox virus called Molluscum contagiosum, say the French experts. The virus causes water warts, small pink bubbles which can break out over the body. These warts are relatively common in children as the virus can be spread by normal skin-on-skin contact. However, it is also passed on during sexual activity, and over the last decade the incidence of this type of infection has been on the rise.

I love the fact that the doctors even got into psychoanalyzing the factors behind this recent widespread fancy for excessive shaving:
They said the reason for opting for pubic hair removal remained “unclear”, “but may be linked with internet-based pornography”. “Another reason cited is an increased sexual sensation. There may also be psychological reasons, as an unconscious desire to simulate an infantile look or a desire to distance ourselves from our animal nature.”
Hey ladies, it’s yours and yours alone to do what you want with it, but consider me President of the Bush Loving Men of the World and allow me to be one voice calling proudly for a return to the au naturel!
Give up that infantile look, rediscover and celebrate your animal nature!

The excessive shaving I will never understand, but reality is, if you’ve got a rockin’ bod and you want to show it off (and you don’t happen to be Japanese, ever notice how most Japanese girls have a natural bikini trim?) if you want to rock that bikini, you will have to do some bikini area shaving.
In the public interest then, I share this article, which is probably common sense to most ladies, but it may inform or remind you of some of the things you can do to avoid the bumps:
