Pubic hair is something that is totally normal, but often expected to be “groomed” or “removed”. While many people shave their vulva’s, it’s not every day we talk about what to do with our behinds. Just as its normal for a vulva to be hairy, it’s also normal for the anus to have hair around it. What you choose to do with it, if anything at all, is up to you! But you CAN get it waxed, and its actually more common than you think.
At the end of the day, while most people don’t really care if a vulva is hairy or not, a hairless vulva tends to have more sensation and feel more than one that isn’t.
Be careful when waxing or shaving your butthole because it can make you more susceptible to infections, sexually transmitted infections as well. Any time we remove hairs, open pores, or create opportunity for a burn/cut/abrasion, it opens the skin to being vulnerable to infection.
Be extra cautious after hair removal when engaging in vaginal or anal sex, to make sure the skin has time to heal. It’s also important to use other barrier methods, like a dental dam or a condom.
