How Guys Groom Their Pubic Hair, According To 24 Men, Because Manscaping Is Serious Business

We talk a lot about the lady landscape, but what about the manscape? While women’s pubes are totally politicized, men seem to get away with a much more laissez faire approach to grooming. Some dudes go full bush, some dudes trim it down, some dudes go totally bald, but it doesn’t seem like there’s a general expectation that male pubic hair should be any particular way. Double standard, am I right ladies? Any woman who came of age in the the era of Britney Spears and internet porn knows that we’ve had to spend much more time, money, and pain thinking about and dealing with our pubic hair than guys do.

But that’s not to say that all the men are just out there letting it grow free and wild; in fact, most seem to be trimming at least occasionally. Maybe that same porn that has influenced how women groom has also had an affect on the boys or maybe it’s sex-related: nothing like a courtesy trim to make oral sex more pleasant. Some theories say that shaving pubes makes guy’s penises look bigger, so that’s also a possibility, but whatever the reason, guys are doing all kinds of stuff with their hair down there.

I reached out into the internets to see how men approach manscaping. As usual, the names are made up (by them) but the words are all theirs.
