Namely, a scientist who published the results of her research in American Diary of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Andrea De Maria is saying that women are not aware of the dangers of removing the pubic hair from their intimate zone.
It was found that, 90% of women shave their pubic hair, while 87% go at a marvel salon for a private haircut.
In this area the skin is very sensitive, as well as prone to cuts and wounds. After shaving their pubic hair, majority of women feel tingling.

The Viral STD Risk of Shaving Your Pubic Hair
Shaving or waxing can cause irritation and micro-trauma to your skin that increases your risk of contracting a viral infection. Researchers of a new case study observed that the number of cases of molluscum contagiosum have risen along with rates of pubic hair removal.
To look into the link, they observed 30 patients at a private skin care clinic in Nice, France, all of whom were infected with the molluscum virus. Nearly all of them had removed their pubic hair, the vast majority by shaving, followed by waxing and then clipping.
The finding supports the researchers theory that hairless genitals may provide an opportunity for sexually transmitted diseases like molluscum to take hold, with shaving showing the strongest association.
Molluscum contagiosum is spread easily, and the researchers suggested the virus may have spread primarily through self-infection caused by scratching skin irritated by shaving. Other skin issues were also noted among the study participants, which may also have been related to the pubic hair removal. These included:
- Warts (the researchers suggested shaving your pubic hair may also increase the risk of genital warts caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV))
- Bacterial skin infections
- Ingrown hairs
