When Pubic Grooming Goes Awry

Blame the Vajazzle

According to an article in the UK Sun, the advent of vajazzles and Brazilians has meant a "five-fold increase in hospital admissions." Among the injuries reported are cuts and infections resulting from public grooming gone awry. 

Ah, the good old days... In the '70s, the bushier a lady's southernmost coiffure the better. Today the trend toward, shall we say, minimalism is leaving many women with nasty grooming fails.

A survey from the University of California in San Francisco found that men still suffer from more "genitourinary" injuries but that women increasingly are, too—with a five-fold jump between 2002 and 2010.

“While women were overall less likely to endure genital injuries than their male counterparts, there was at least one exception: cuts and infections related to shaving or grooming pubic hair," said lead researcher, urologist Dr Benjamin Breyer. "The last few years have seen a dramatic increase in these types of injuries in women."

Spill it. Ever had a cosmetic injury down there? Do you happily suffer for neat-looking lady bits?
