What Men are Doing with Their Pubes These Days

LOOKING GOOD

A fascinating deep dive into the latest trends for hair, and lack of hair, down below

Staff writer Tracy Moore at MEL magazine opens with, “Let’s start with the stereotypes: Waxing and grooming your pubes is mostly a gay thing; straight men are about as aware of their pubes needing a tune-up as they are of their feelings. But it turns out neither of these things is true — a new study finds that men (67%) are close to keeping pace with women (85%) in terms of tending to the hair down there.”

Stephen Handisides, who guides men in everything from grooming to etiquette to style via his Bravo series, The Modern Face of Beauty, and the website Modern Male Mindset, says he’s seeing younger men increasingly committed to trimming and shaving their pubic hair. Among the most common questions he fields from readers on his site are from mothers asking whether it’s okay that their sons, aged 14 or 15, are shaving their pubic hair.”

Handisides further notes that is a dramatic shift from his own generation, and he’s in his 30s. “Guys today — millennials and even younger, starting at 14 — are manscaping on a completely different level than they were 10 to 20 years ago. Some of them want to be bald as a badger.”

From the 1970s vibe to modern to completely bald, for gay and straight men, this is a fascinating deep dive into the latest trends for hair, and lack of hair, down below.
