Save the Bush!!

This may be NSFW!!!!  YEAH!!!!  I am actually typing up a blog that may or may not be suitable for work.  There are no naughty pictures so it may be okay if you read really fast!!!!  Like speed read as you scroll!!!!

I have been debating on blogging about this because I sort of guess this is a family blog.  I do occasionally talk about sex or the lack of sex in the Supermom house.  I do have a campaign "Say NO to Head" for teenage girls though.  Hmmmmm.....

Maybe I shouldn't blog about this after all.

What the hell!!!  Feel free to join in if you want. YOU KNOW YOU WANT TOOOOOOO!!!!!

First, I blame HIM.  He started this whole thing!  LOL  Technically I don't know Mikey.  We met after he commented on my homemade bread one day!  You may call him Michael!  I was reading my bookmarks and came across a recent post of his.  I HAD to give my two cents. (Mikey and his wife are having a lil baby soon so send him lots of good wishes!)

I remember looking at my dads and papaws old Playboy's from many many years ago.  When they had REAL women in them.  No fake airbrushed women with plastic boobies.  No offense there to anyone reading.

What's wrong with showing a woman for who she is????  A few extra pounds!!  SO WHAT!!  I'd rather see a woman with a few extra pounds than a woman that could eat a few burgers!!!!  So what if she has small breasts!!  They look more natural than those fake things that are all around.  Again, no offense.

I am a very secure woman and don't mind how my body looks after four children.  Yes, I wish I had that 18 year old body back that could actually wear a bikini and look smokin' HOT.  SHRUG!!  It's okay that I have a few, okay A LOT, of stretch marks.  It's okay that I have a few extra pounds from these kids.  I have come to love my baby pouch!!!!!  I wouldn't send my naked picture to be on The Shape of a Mother blog just yet.   It's an awesome blog and I go visit from time to time.  It's amazing to see these women be so proud of their body after having a baby.  Anyway, I'm getting off track.

This topic came up a bit ago between me and a friend.  You know who you are and you can comment if you want.  :)

Women and this urge to shave off their pubic hair making them look like they are 12.  I just don't understand it.  Really I don't.  If you have a good explanation then please feel free to share it.  I told Mikey I was going to start the "Save the Bush" campaign!!!  Now wouldn't that make an awesome t-shirt or bumper sticker!

Hmmmm, okay don't be mad at me for starting such a conversation but I'm just curious is all.  Remember you can talk to me about anything!!!!!!!!!  Hell, you ask about my sex life so why can't I ask you about your bush or the lack of one?

OH you know this shit gets me riled up! I was just talking to Mr F about it.
It really ticks me off how far things have gone in our culture that pretty much anything about being a woman is no longer attractive. Pubic hair= adult woman. no pubic hair = child.
First we shave our armpits and legs... now we can't have pubic hair... what next?! Pretty soon you're going to have an army of young women with implants walking around completely hairless.
It really bothers me to think about growing up as a teenager right now. As soon as you get pubic hair it's not seen as a sign of adulthood or sexual maturity but as something to get rid of in order to be sexually appealing.
Gah!
The end.

Ok I'm going to type this as my face turns blood red...

I don't shave. I trim. It gets itchy. Lol. It makes me feel more comfortable and cleaner.

But while I was pregnant I just had to itch because I couldn't SEE it! Lol

Hope that helps your curiosity :)

Thanks ladies! I was so worried I'd upset you all by this post.

I want to teach my girls to embrace their body the way God made it. Hair, boobs and all.

I remember being so excited when hair started to grow. It meant I was becoming a woman. I would have never thought to shave something off so meaningful to me.

Anyway, Save the Bush!!!

BTW, Keisha. When they were prepping me for my cesarean I had the whole room laughing because I said, "Watch out! It's a jungle down there because I haven't trimmed."

I really admire you for being so bold and open with your blog! Please don't stop that!
I love how pubic hair can turn into such a lively debate when put in the right hands.

Keshia ~ I will try to continue to be bold!!! Thank you for your kind words!

Mikey ~ SAVE THE BUSH!

OK, ready for a guys prospective? **********Possibly graphic material**************** First of all, I love women, all shapes and sizes, I can usually find something attractive about most any woman. I believe everyone has something beautiful about them. I love real breasts more than fake but sometimes fake arent bad either. For me in particular the pubic hair thing is cyclical. Sometimes I love a nice runway, or a heart shaped design, sometimes bald for a week or 2. Most often I like a nice trim, clean lines. The cleaner the shave the easier oral sex is. You guys dont like to choke on pubes and we dont like hacking them up either. All that said, bald isnt always the best way to go but stay well groomed. That goes both ways. Thanks for allowing me to participate:)

Who knew people had so many thoughts and opinions about the Bush! It reminds me about the hysterical episode of Sex and the City when Samantha decides to "grow hers out" because her boyfriend likes "A full bush." During the episode she scratches openly and then, to her horror discovers as the hair grows in that "the girl goes grey!!" She then dyes it and it goes terribly wrong and she ends up with a huge, bright orange bush. An absolutely hysterical episode of a show I miss so much!
Supermom--thanks so much for the great review of my website!
