While Kim Kardashian's behind may have broken the internet, its her front that piqued my interest. There was a notable lack of pubic hair that made me raise the question, is the Brazlian wax back and why did it go away in the first place?

All the uner 25 year olds in the office maintain a) their own nether regions, and b) that the Brazilian didn't go anywhere anyway. To them it is common place to keep everything so tidy that grooming is not applicable (you can't worry about hair that is not there). I'm inclined to recognise it as a practical solution to the stray bikini line situation, rather than a trend choice, but I'm not sure Kim K would have the same motivation.

Today this is known as a Vazazzle, but this was way back when Essex was still just a place east of London rather than a phenomenon. To say I was shocked when she returned me to my pre-pubescent state was an understatement. Furthermore the crystals failed to stick to my skin - since they'd had to sooth it with post-wax oil - so I was as god intended. For a child to be.

It is less hygenic - your pubes are there for a reason and it is one of protection.

But really, when all is said and done there is only one opinion about pubic hair that matters, and that is your own.
