“Yeah, well, I LOVE my rug.”
These words were actually spoken by someone. And yes it was in reference to their unkempt lady garden.
This phrase was uttered by a ‘friend’. Let’s call her Magda.
(Incidentally Magda is in a mere 6% of the population who feel this way, according to a completely unsubstantiated internet survey, see above.)
Magda was under the influence of extreme excitement, and champagne, at the time. She was with a bunch of mates, on a fizz-fuelled car ride to an adult only event, and who doesn’t love a roadie, hey. Especially Moet in kids plastic cups! Genius.
(Please note: in case you’re picking up your biro to write me an angry letter, there were no minors in the car with Magda. And the driver was stone cold sober. Sober as a judge, having to listen to all the crap being spoken. Excruciating.)
The dreadfully coarse statement was made in the context of a discussion about how much pruning one’s bush should be subjected to. What is reasonable and polite? What is attractive? What’s in fashion? Is all this waxing and grooming just another nasty little subjugation strategy of the patriarchy? Just another thing to make women feel bad about themselves? Hey…what are the porn stars doing these days anyway?
While many ladies choose to toe the pubic line and keep their down-there tresses to themselves, neatly primped into shape, some are quite belligerent about the free state of their minge. Cameron Diaz recently came out suggesting that pubic hair is there for a reason and should be left alone. Any money hers is one of those naturally neat, sleek blond beavers that doesn’t require so much as a single disciplinary tweeze.
Maybe 2014 will be a watershed year that will be added to the “10 most important moments in the history of pubic hair”. Commemorated for the dumping of convention and abounding in much free-spirited, wild mingeyness.
I doubt it’s going to quite come to that but Magda and her afghan will be thrilled at the suggestion.
I laughed my arse off at an American Apparel window display a little while back. Marketing mastermind, don’t you think? Let’s create a bit of hoo-har with some hoo-hars. Haha.
What’s the state of your feminine forest? Would you ring in on the rug debate?
