A friend of mine was kind enough to send me an article about the correlation between waxing it all and STD's. One of the arguments is that a moist area breeds bacteria. That is one of the reasons to get rid of the hair; it makes the area less moist. If someone has chlamydia, gonorrhea or HPV, that person will spread it to an unprotected partner whether there is hair down there or not. Additionally, a urologist that I wax firmly believes that the risk of infection during surgery would be profoundly less if the patients would wax before their procedures instead of getting the area shaved by the nursing staff. There are also studies that have confirmed that pubic lice (aka Crabs) are virtually extinct since Brazilians have become so popular. No one will convince me that waxing will cause an STD. If you are one of the millions of men and women who prefer a perfectly smooth playing field, I say "don't worry, be happy!"
