A new study has found that a majority of women in the U.S. are choosing to completely remove pubic hair around their genitals. According to a nationally representative survey of 3,316 women, researchers found that 62.1 percent were opting to go completely hairless, while 83.8 percent reported some form of grooming of their pubic hair.
The paper calls grooming "an increasingly prevalent trend," as has been noted by other research, with many women reporting to groom for sexual reasons. However, this study records a rising number of people doing so based on a health myth. The survey found 59 percent of women who groom report doing so for hygienic reasons.
