Pubic hair grooming injuries on the rise

The article "Pubic Hair Grooming Injuries Presenting to U.S. Emergency Departments" was published in the December issue of the journal Urology. The authors note that the scientific community has paid little attention to the subject of pubic hair grooming injuries, which is why their article is a welcome correction.

The take-home from the article is that a) pubic hair grooming injuries are on the rise, mostly because more people are watching porn, inspiring them to want to look like porn stars down there, so they start grooming, sometimes with bad consequences; and b) razors were responsible for most of the injuries. The authors recommend using clippers instead.

Not that I really want to know, but just how badly cut are these unfortunates? I mean, unless you're using a straight razor, you shouldn't be able to do yourself a huge amount of damage if you stick to the places that have hair to shave. Although trying to navigate the razor round the more delicate bits can't be as straightforward as doing your face. OK, it's got a huge eek factor (Not the jewels!), and I'm sure there's blood aplenty, but, on the whole, it's not *that* bad, surely?

A question for the guys: Was alcohol involved?

For the girls: Did you try to shave the bits that were hanging out too?

TheCannyScot -- From what I gathered, it's not usually the initial laceration that sends people to the emergency room. Rather, it's the infection that subsequently develops.

Well, Alex, that answers my question. Who would admit to a stranger about an injury while doing self-barbering? 🐛
