To Bare or Not?

Remember Drew Barrymore raising a ruckus when she strolled down a red carpet flashing a wild swath of armpit hair? Now, an American physician wants women to adopt the French “au naturale” look for their nether region as well.

The physician, Emily Gibson, claims the popular “Bare Down There” fashion increases the risk of infections and sexually transmitted diseases, so she’s opposed to women shaving, waxing, plucking or using laser treatments to remove their pubic hair. “Pubic hair does have a purpose, providing a cushion against friction that can cause skin abrasion and injury, and protection from bacteria,” she says. “It is time to declare a truce in the war on pubic hair and allow it to stay right where it belongs.”

Her call has spurred Taiwan’s Next Media Animation to poll its nearly 50,000 YouTube subscribers on the raging question of the day: “To Wax or Not to Wax?”

Not to be a contrarian, but the Japanese have conclusively demonstrated that proper hair removal can have healthy consequences, regardless of Dr. Gibson’s claims.
