ASK MISS BLISS – MAKE ME PRETTY DOWN THERE

by Miss Bliss

Dear Miss Bliss,

I’m you’re new biggest fan, and I’m confident you have the answer I need for my question….

I hate pubic hair. It’s disgusting – ew ew ew – and so I shave it all. I saw you recommend waxing in your blog, A Girl’s First Threesome, but I’m half scared and half broke so it won’t be happening any time soon. The problem is, when I shave, I never get a pretty pussy. :( For the very first two or three weeks I started shaving, it was BEAUTIFUL…but now, EVERY time I am bumpy and some of my pores become red and extremely sore. When the stubble begins to come through, I always have at least 4 or 5 hairs that grow UNDER my skin, causing MUCH irritation and …UGLINESS!!! I have asked several ladies and tried different things such as Dove Sensitive Skin instead of cream, sensitive skin shaving creams, and even bought a special 5-blade razor to be used very especially for PUSSY ONLY. I’ve tried shaving it lightly, slowly, against the grain, with the grain, sideways, YOU NAME IT! My husband said it was just because my skin had to get used to it but that was a year ago and it’s not any better! HEEEELLLPPP!!!

Femme Love,
Pussy-Control

Darling Pussy Control,

The first time I went to get waxed, my Korean-American waxer looked at the hair down there and said, “Oh, no.” Embarrassed, I tried to make her laugh by saying, “Well, I am part-Italian.” She looked at me blankly. “Italians have a lot of hair,” I said, feeling more and more awkward. “We Koreans have no hair,” she said and showed me her perfectly hairless arm. “So you became a waxer,” I asked. “Isn’t that like an alcoholic tending bar?”

I bring up this example, not to push waxing on you, but to share that some of us are lucky and born with little or no hair, while others have to struggle to keep their hair under control. I do not always wax, because it can be expensive and sometimes there is just not enough time to wait for a waxing appointment.

Over the years, I have tried everything to avoid red bumps and ingrown hairs, and as you have learned, dear reader, many products sold in drugstores today claim to help, but often make the problem worse! It has only been in the last year that I have found a solution to ingrown hairs and bumps, but along the way I learned many tips that might help you. Every girl’s body hair is different, so it does take time and experimentation to find what works for you best.

SHAVE WITH TALCUM POWDER
In Toni Bentley’s erotic memoir, The Surrender, she explains that before every tryst, she shaves her pussy with talcum powder BEFORE she bathes. The genital area is very moist and moisture, Ms. Bentley argues, is what causes the blade to slip and cause redness. To soak up the moisture, she dusts herself with talc and then shaves dry, AGAINST the grain, for smoothness. She uses two double-bladed razors each time, and throws them out immediately after. I tried this for a year and it did work better for me as long as I was shaving every day or every other day. This is a lot of shaving and a lot of razors, but it did keep the bumps from returning.

EXFOLIATION IS KEY IN THE PUBIC AREA
I also get horrible ingrown hairs that expand into ugly red bumps. Researchers say that ingrown hairs are more likely to affect girls with curly hair, as curly hairs easily grown back in and under the skin. Ingrown hairs also are more frequent when there is more moisture in the air, something you may notice in humid climates. Exfoliation is the key to removing old layers of skin that the hair can grow under. Believe it or not, dry brushing your vaginal area is a quick and easy way to exfoliate old skin cells and help trapped hairs to be freed before they become ingrown. I also highly recommend the all-natural, vegan, lemongrass cleanser from Suki Naturals. It is meant as a facial cleanser, (and if you have red skin or problem skin, it’s truly amazing!) but works incredibly well as a pussy exfoliator and will not disrupt sensitive skin.

NO BUMP GEL THAT ACTUALLY WORKS
I have tried many products that claim to stop ingrown hairs and to clear red bumps, and very few worked to my satisfaction. A month ago, I started using Surgi-Care Bare ‘N Clear No Bumps Gel and I am proud to say, it not only cleared any red bumps, I have not had an ingrown hair since I used it. I bought the product at CVS Pharmacy, but you can find a store that carries Surgi-Care products by clicking here.

SHAVING CREAM
I do not use shaving creams on the pubic area because they do not seem to make a difference in the quality of a shave. I always exfoliate with Suki’s lemongrass cleanser before shaving, and leave it on to serve as a shaving cream. Raw food gurus also recommend using raw coconut butter as a shaving cream and as a post-shaving moisturizer. Coconut butter will even help heal old shaving and ingrown hair scars.

LASER TREATMENTS
If none of the above treatments help you, dear reader, I recommend saving your money for laser hair removal. This is the secret of porn stars, models and strippers who have to stay bare for a living. Although it is initially expensive, and you may need up to three treatments for stubborn hair, it will solve your hair problems in the long run. Think of all the money you will save if you never have to buy razors, creams, and lotions ever again. I’m saving my money as we speak!

Hey Bliss-

The trick to avoiding the pussy bumps post shaving is….
to shave with neosporin ointment and to shave in the opposite direction of what you would shave your legs. (meaning shave downward from top to bottom) but neosporin in key.

yep… Neosporin all the way… I learned that trick when I read Jenna Jameson’s book – and pretty kitty – ever since… :)

Hello Miss Bliss,

Happy Halloween! I was reading one of your posts about pubic hair and maintenance. Can I say, shaving is the worst! If someone can’t afford waxing, surely than can afford “Magic” shaving powder! It’s “formulated for black men’s beards to help prevent bumps.” It’s a little smelly, so she should use it in advance of any amorous encounters. She should give it a try.

Thanks…T.

Although I’m Asian and therefore have very little pussy hair, I still like having a pretty kitty. If you don’t have the finances, the tips Miss Bliss gives regarding the neosporin have always worked for me. However, I got tired of shaving or waxing, so a few years ago I had electrolysis (laser hair removal) done by a big breasted Korean woman with long legs. I think she liked me, because she gave me a happy ending ;)

Talc is closely related to the potent carcinogen asbestos. Talc particles have been shown to cause tumors in the ovaries and lungs of cancer victims. For the last 30 years, scientists have closely scrutinized talc particles and found dangerous similarities to asbestos. Responding to this evidence in 1973, the FDA drafted a resolution that would limit the amount of asbestos-like fibers in cosmetic grade talc. However, no ruling has ever been made and today, cosmetic grade talc remains non-regulated by the federal government. This inaction ignores a 1993 National Toxicology Program report which found that cosmetic grade talc, without any asbestos-like fibers, caused tumors in animal subjects.1 Clearly with or without asbestos-like fibers, cosmetic grade talcum powder is a carcinogen.

Talcum powder is not a good idea!!!

very wise, miss namaste.

yes, this is true.
and it was unwise of me not to mention it…

i stopped using talc when i found suki natural products.
in sex stores, they sell kama sutra honey dust,
which can also be found online.
made of honey,
it is good and silky for your skin,
and tasty for your partner
and NO cancer!

thank you for your wise comment!

Corn starch and even baby powder both soak up moisture in a similar manner…maybe not AS well, but it’s worth a shot. I’ve used them on hair to make it less greasy when there’s no time for showering, and to soak up sweat in a hurry.

many thanks for the much needed information… i would like to point out, however, a pussy needn’t be shaved for it to be a pretty pussy. many women and men actually prefer a beautiful, soft bush… it makes for interesting exploration of the genitalia. shaving certainly has it’s pros, one being the added texture of skin on skin during intimacy.

I have said before, once you wax you never go back!!! This has reduced the bumps for me and its true sometimes you can’t wait for that appointment, but feeling so pretty and smooth afterwards is priceless. I have been using Tend Kin Liguid for razor bumps and ingrown hairs. YOu can find it at local waxing studios and beauty supplies. This solution does not smell and it works wonders. ;)

P.S. I’m in San Diego, so next brunch here please let me know. I would love to attend.
