Jessica at Feministing wishes we'd just not discuss it. Suzanne takes issue with cosmetogynecology and sarcastically suggests a Brazilian. Carey Tennis refuses to even research the subject; deferring to his learned readers instead.
But since Kennedy also expressed an interest in the subject I've done more research on the evolution of the shaving of the bush.
It appears, according to In The Beginning by Carmichael, Pearson and Hattikudur that women to be married in some Muslim cultures have all of their hair removed for the wedding.
Interesting. I wonder if this means the hair on her head as well? Anyone know anything more on this?
Here's the link Josh gave me to all those Playboy centerfolds. If you recall I looked through them a couple of days ago and found that "women went from having full bush as late as 1994 followed by a transition period between 1994 and 2004 in which strips and other shaves came into popularity. And finally by the end of 2004 it became apparent that all the women had completely shaved or waxed".
I'm still looking for more on this subject. If you have any stories or knowledge to share on this I'd love to learn more.
