    Interesting study, speaking as,one who shaves his body. The hupothesis if microtears is nor unreasonable. They will next have to distinguish between those who shave and those who trim. The difference is an important one since most hosputals moved from shaving to trimming over a decade ago because of the same issues involvng surgical site infections.

    Could it be that people who shave downstairs are having more sex and therefore are more likely to get an STI? icon_rolleyes.gif

    I find it interesting that minor tears on the outside pubic area are considered worthy of mentioning, yet the cock sized obsessed masses seem to have drowned out talk of what damaging, internal cut and abrasion inducing activities pass for fun and I don't just mean a 'kinky fringe' of sex obsessed men living in a gay ghetto

    Diseases aside....shaved crotches look creepy as fuck. It's a dick, not a pussy.

    I find Waxing to be a better alternative...no risk of infections due to cuts.

    I just trim with barber scissors otherwise the hair is too long. Also, when my pubic hair is trimmed, it makes my penis look bigger.

    From the article:

    "A new study done at the University of California—San Francisco reports that people who regularly groom their pubic hair are 75% more likely to develop a sexually transmitted infection than non-groomers."

    There is nothing there to put the 75% into perspective. Suppose that 4 un-groomed people in 1000 got an STD. If grooming increased the risk by 75%, that would mean that 7 groomed people in 1000 would bet an STD. The increased risk would not amount to much.

    Now suppose that 4 un-groomed people in 10 got an STD. Then, if grooming increased the risk by 75%, then 7 groomed people out of 10 would get an STD. That would be a much more serious increased risk.

    i didn't read the article but its a turn off seeing shaved pubic hair. its not normal to shave pubic hair unless you have to do it for bicycle riding where you can get a rash.

    *sighs in relief* good thing I only trim :p

    though that liklihood is probably related to people who groom themselves being more social, thus having the raised chances of encountering someone with an sti in the first place.
