Pubic hair grooming is becoming an increasingly common practice among women of all societies and demographic groups. In the United States, women are more likely to groom for reasons that are sexually driven and are more likely to stop grooming when lacking a current sexual partner.1 Further, pubic hair removal is significantly associated with a greater interest in sex and having a casual sex partner.1
