									Albuquerque Plastic Surgeon Warns of Risk of Pubic Shaving

Pubic hair has many functions and shaving is not without risk.

Albuquerque, NM, April 04, 2013 --(PR.com)-- A generation ago pubic shaving was unusual but today
two out of three teens have shaved or waxed their pubic hair and it has gained wide acceptability in most
age groups. While some men and women prefer this shaved appearance, the commonest reason women
say they shave the pubis is hygiene. Studies show that pubic hair removal reflects an overall increased
interest in sex and seems more common among women with a more positive self-image.

Unfortunately pubic hair has many functions and shaving is not without risk. A recent study showed that
shaving or waxing can lead to micro trauma that may increase the spread of some viral infections, in
particular molluscum contagium.

"Both women and women who shave the pubic area need to be aware of the risk of infection," says
Albuquerque plastic surgeon, Patrick Hudson,"diabetics and those with reduced resistance to infection are
especially vulnerable."

Apart from providing warmth pubic hair acts as touch receptors and can trap pheromones-chemicals the
body secretes and act as a sexual stimulus. They also absorb sweat making it less likely to collect in other
areas causing irritation and odor.

"The social trend of pubic shaving seems likely to increase," Hudson adds, "but if you are going to do this
make certain you use good hygiene and if it is done professionally be certain the facilities are clean and
appropriately inspected."
