This is about to be good. Listen, I already know I’m going to get major push back equally from men and women, but this isn’t written for men, so their opinions on this matter really don’t hold much weight. ijs
I’m about to free some of you, women and men; I am about to challenge some notions many women have held onto and taught men to accept and expect. So much wrong information is out here, I am about to school some of you. Listen, if you’re embarrassed easily or just a straight up prude, keep on reading.
I’m just going to put it out here, you ladies out here shaving your cooch-cooch baby butt-bottom bald, “you need to cut it”….OUT! WHO TOLD US SHAVING OUR PUBIC AREAS BALD IS HYGIENIC OR NECESSARY? I am 44 years old, and I am going to admit, I had never, ever waxed my hair until I was probably in my late 30’s, and I’ve only had one Brazilian wax ever in my life two years ago. I mean, I never had any issues, so now I’m wondering what in thee hell is going on. Now don’t get me wrong, I’ve trimmed the bush before, and even shaved myself before, but it was never a regular thing and never something I even thought men cared about. But I’m telling you, the game has indeed changed. I have seen men in my generation sitting up here having expectations of grown ass women having bald pubic areas. Like, what the hell is going on? I mean I know of women my age and older sitting up here getting Brazilians, and y’all know your mothers and grandmas ain’t ever taught you to shave. I didn’t start shaving my legs until after high school because my daddy told me black girls didn’t shave their legs, and hairy legs were sexy, and he told me to go look at my mama’s legs. And yep, she had hairy legs. That’s the male vantage point I came from; hair just wasn’t nasty or indicative of poor hygiene and men liked that shit.
I am not going to tackle the hygiene part of why shaving isn’t necessary, I want to hip you to something I think is very important in the dating/mating game. Let me stop and say, this blog is inspired by my boy Javonne, because he said something in a video last week that made me do some Google research, and I be damn, it seems absolutely true. When he said what he said, my energy aligned with it so I received it as true, but I just had to read it for myself. And he was right.
Back in the day, we used to be drawn to people, I mean like “intoxicatingly” drawn to them. I honestly used to be so attracted and turned on by men that had a bit of a sweaty smell under his arms, not musty, sweaty, and it was weird that was a turn on for me. I love men with hairy armpits. I can’t explain it, it is just manly and sexual to me. And men, I know for a fact, there is a certain odor that turns you on, and you know what I’m talking about, but it is something you love, and every woman is different. You all want to know what that is…PHEROMONES.
Pheromones are odorous substances that we secrete and emit from our glands, and HAIR function as receptors for these secretions that we don’t see. Little magic wands! Come on now, think about this even, why do you think women are so attracted to beards now days, they think they are sexy, and they are drawn to men part of the #BeardGang? Ladies, you ever been around a man with a beard? Tell the truth, the allure is captivating isn’t it? Umhmmm, starting to see my point?
It seems the allure of mating is gone; true dating is a mating game, and no I’m not talking about just having sex. But like other mammals in the animal kingdom, we too can pick up on the right scent, right nature of a potential mate, it’s how we are drawn to them. The allure of forbidden sex appeal is gone, and people are just moving on the outward appearance and not drawn by that something anymore; not drawn by the personal essence of a woman, or man. It’s all a part of what we call chemistry. I hear now more than ever, people just aren’t experiencing chemistry with people any more. I am telling you, I believe I know a small reason why; keep on laughing, but hear me out. Here is the lesson I’m about to “learn” you today: We are waxing, shaving, and exfoliating all of our essence away, our pheromones away. STOP IT!!!!
Now with all that said, I am not advocating not washing the cooch or even some general “maintenance” if you must, especially if you can do a twist out down there, trim your baby (a low-cut fade will work too), and god knows, don’t nobody wanna smell no musty, sweaty, hairy balls, I’m just saying. This is something to think about, besides, we need our hair down there, even under the arms, and our legs. Ladies, some of us have bought into this myth our vaginas are supposed to be “pretty” and smell like an oil burner with potpourri. GIRL, YOUR VAGINA LOOKS AND SMELL THE WAY IT IS SUPPOSED TO SMELL, STOP SHAVING THINKING YOU ARE GOING TO BE CLEANER. GET. IT. TOGETHER. You don’t need to shave or wax in order to be clean, your va-jay-jay is like a self-cleaning oven. Who lied to us!? If you have an issue with odor being trapped in your hair, then you need to examine your diet and drink more water, bathe more, or go see your “lady doctor” because you have something else going on! Girl, get yo life! And to the men complaining about vaginal hair during sex. I tell you what, I bet your daddy and granddaddy weren’t complaining, and if they “doth protest” about doing a certain deed, then in the words of Beyonce, “middle fingers up, tell him ‘boy bye”! I am going to say this, most grown men I know don’t care and do not want to see a hairless cooch.
I’m just saying, it’s time to STOP THE COOCH ABUSE! Who’s with me…or not? LOL
OAN ladies, I want to give you a suggestion that will change your life. If you want a va-jay-jay that is always balanced, fresh, and “normal”, let me suggest you slather it daily after showering with COCONUT OIL. Yes you heard me, coconut oil. I love that stuff. I swear by it. I shower, without soap, per doctor’s order, and then I dry and use a very liberal amount of coconut oil. I never go a day without it. Try it, you’ll thank me later!
Until next time,
