not worried about “how”. i wnt to know if i *should*. my hair down there has just started growing. i am 13. should i shave it? will it be good for me or bad for me. all the girls i see in pictures have it shaved. i’m too shy to ask my mum but i did peek her in the shower and i think she is shaved. none of my friends in school have done it. i don’t have a boyfriend yet but if i do i don’t want him to think i’m strange. please help!!!

If you want to shave then that’s a good reason, I presume at 13 years old you don’t have a lot of pubic hair yet so it would be comparatively easy, and any re-grow itching would be less.  Just follow the advise I gave before.  Actually if you have very few hairs it might be worth trying to just pluck them.  When I was in school I knew a girl who just plucked her pussy hairs as they grew and eventually it killed the hair roots and now she is an adult she has hardly any hair on her pussy even when she doesn’t shave.

 An interesting solution but too late for the majority of us!  Though I do hear that if you wax regularly you get a similiar effect with a slight reduction in hairs growing back as basically each time a hair is pulled out there is a small chance that the root will be killed and it won’t grow back again.

If plucking hairs is painful then try fingering your clit at the same time, if you get excited then the sensation can become pleasurable instead of painful.

As for looking normal — well it is perfectly normal to have pubic hair, but then so is having hair on on mens’ chins and shaving that is “normal” as well.  So it’s what makes you happy.  I won’t be one to tell you not to shave for someone else (a future boyfriend) as I shave mostly for all my “temporary boyfriends” at my work!

I hope that helps, let me know what you decide to do!


  1. Hey . I am fourtenn years old. And the guys i hang out with , always going around saying ” Bush’s ” are gross , and nasty. So my friend started waxing her ‘ area ‘ . And one night, my boyfriend said it would be nasty to see a bush, if he was going to like, finger someone. And so I thought if I should start shaving mine. So I did. But I didn’t read any sites or anything, I just did what I thought you should do? But I did get bumps and itching. So I started using St.Ives Mosturize, And it helped a bit. But, I have a question. I dont know how to get the hairs on the sides. Like below the pussy, on the sides that lead to your butt? How do you shave them, and also ; should you shave ALL the hair , and leave nothing ? cause that is what I have been doing. Are you suppose to? If you answer my question, Thanks.

  2. im 13 and i hate my pubic hair so i frist cut it down and it grew back so i shaved and plucked it. im wondering whetther to carry on plucking for im not sure its good. Should i carry on becauses it takes along time and hurts sometimes?

  3. If it looks like a plucked chicken you are not doing it right or maybe you are not used to it. Bare pussy looks nice on any aged girl.

  4. Hi, i just wanted to let you know that i shave and use a hand lotion on my shaved skin afterwards to ease the plucked chicken look and to keep ingrown hairs down.
    normally i have a small strip of hair right above my penis, and it looks good to me and to my gf.
    I think you should try to let another person shave you sometime, it will add an interesting dymanic to your relationship
