*OK, I’m going to say this straight out, this is not for the prudish.
And if you think its TMI (Too much information) well, just blame it on Cameron Diaz!
I thought it was interesting that Cameron, an actress I have always loved would now write a Body Book (That’s the actual title), and dedicate an entire chapter on how a woman cares for her pubic hair.
But she did and brings up a pretty good point.
Known for her brazen characterization in films like “Bad Teacher” and “There’s Something About Mary,” Diaz is not new to breaking the mold on things ladies just don’t do or talk about.
Look, don’t act like you don’t remember the scene in ‘Mary’ where she answers the door with sperm in her hair.
Now she’s giving women something else to focus on. With the advent (and permanency) of laser hair removal vs shaving, the girl is getting a lot of attention for saying things like,
“Do you really want a hairless vagina for the rest of your life? It’s a personal decision, but I’m just putting it out there: Consider leaving your vagina fully dressed, ladies. Twenty years from now, you will still want to be presenting it to someone special, and it would be nice to let him or her unwrap it like the gift that it is.”
Or what about this gem,
“I didn’t say what I prefer, I just said pubic hair has a purpose. You can do what you want with it, I don’t care – you can shave it off every day, wax it off every day, turn it into a bonsai – I don’t care. I just said consider maybe not removing it permanently and forever with laser treatment. Forever is forever and when we make those choices for our body we have to live with them forever.”
She has a point.
Cameron’s book is titled The Body Book: The Law of Hunger, the Science of Strength, and Other Ways to Love Your Amazing Body.
The book is out now.
