Is Removing Your Pubic Hair Safe?

Published

on

A lot of people think that removing pubic hair is the best option and the debate about whether one should or shouldn’t remove their pubic hair has been long raging. Although doctors have advised against it, due to the possibility of getting an STI (Sexually transmitted infection), some women still choose to go completely bare down there. 

Is it hygienic and safe?

59% of the respondents to the JAMA Dermatology survey conducted by Dr. Benjamin Brevor, a urologist at the University of California have confirmed that they indeed choose to remove their pubic hair for hygienic reasons. However, removing pubic hair, especially regularly can cause injuries and cuts that allow bacteria to penetrate. So, what you may think is good to keep you clean down there, might actually be the cause of ‘not so cool’ infections. The only thing you’re dodging here is pubic lice.

the JAMA survey also found that a quarter of the people who use shaving, waxing, sweat, or scissors to clean up down there experience injuries. These injuries include: burns, cuts and rashes.

Well, you should avoid shaving at all costs. First off, shaving can cause the growth of ingrown hair and after a while, you’ll find that the new hair that’s growing has become thicker, taller and darker.

Second, through the survey, it was discovered that more than 60 percent of the injuries were related to cuts, meaning shaving was more dangerous.

Waxing is slightly safer, but still leaves the skin exposed for cuts or ingrown hairs.

Dr. Brever advised grooming less often and removing less hair to minimize the risk.

Children are also encouraged to join, so that they can learn from an early age how to lead a healthy lifestyle and maintain physical fitness.

“In everything we do, we are devoted to the power of “US“. Communities are made up of groups of people congregating in the same place, having common characteristics, and practicing common ownership. The ethos of ‘Community’ is the essence of PULSE.” -Quoted from their website.

Members can practice the various exercises that the studio offers, whilst creating for them a comfortable, friendly and relaxing environment.

Levitate‘ is a kind of exercise that they offer, that they have developed on their own. The exercise uses a silk hammock to mimic the experience of flying; through a combination of yoga, barre, pilates, and dance. It is one of the other 25 classes that the studio provides, all of which can be booked online.

You don’t have to be committed to one trainer or a single experience, because in each visit, every trainer in the studio will be keen to work with you on your body; through understanding its mechanics and nutritional needs.

Their focus isn’t solely on the activity, but also on the unique experience.
