Once we realize that we are not influencing the norms of porn, then we can better actively detangle ourselves from these norms. Riding the trains of sexual liberation, feminism, and an organic aesthetic, women chose to let their pubic hair grow free. The process of interrogation can lead to more experimentation and ultimately more progression. Perhaps because hairless genitals allowed the camera to capture more graphic shots, perhaps because coated vulvas were associated with old, burly, s Deadhead feminist aunts, rather than sexy, kinky, American Pie, all-American girls, perhaps because the male lizard brain may associate hairless vaginas with fertility — no one can know for certain the cause. There is no turn off so great. Soon my friends and I all went to liberal colleges, where we read Simone de Beauvoir and plastered posters of Frida Kahlo to our dorm walls, her unibrow and facial mustache a symbol for her hairy resistance of the white patriarchy.

If a man ever has a problem with your body, it is a problem with his mind, not a problem with your body. In other words, let us not underestimate how entrenched hair removal has become in the female psyche and let us not underestimate how entrenched porn has become in the male psyche. I never want to shame other women, but I want women to be honest and interrogate the idea that none of these choices are entirely ours. Desires — like our limbs lying, side by side, in bed together — difficult to detangle. For a quick recap: But if my leg hair was a statement, it was only a statement of my laziness.
