When it comes to pubic hair, humans are an anomaly among mammals.
The skin on your genital region is delicate and pubic hair acts as a protective buffer, reducing friction during sex and other activities.
“The vagina is a sacred place that needs to be taken good care of,” Ghanaian doctor, Kennedy Tettey Cofie Brightson of the Superintendent-Shai Osudoku District Hospital has said.
He has advised ladies to shave off pubic hair on their vaginas to keep the place clean.
According to Dr Brightson, hair located on the private parts of the body is not for beautification and explained that it can breed all kinds of organisms and invite lice into the pubic hair.
Speaking on the GTV Breakfast Show, he said “both men and women must learn to keep that area clean of hair, that is you should.”
He stated that an infection known as ‘staphylococcus’ is a germ bacteria, a type of germs commonly found on the skin of healthy individuals which most of the time, cause no problems or result in relatively minor skin infections.
He said men who request for their women to keep their pubic hairs are only endangering the women.
Dr Brightson advised women to stop inserting products into the vagina in the name of “tightening” it because it does not help, adding that shaving the vagina is good all the time.
