Cameron Diaz ‘In Praise of Pubes’

By Tamsin Crimmens

Cameron Diaz has released a book on how to appreciate and look after your body and our favourite chapter is called ‘In Praise of Pubes.’
How do you wear yours? It’s a topic that’s been much debated at ELLE HQ of late. In the February issue Francesca O’Brien explains why we think pubic hair is now a feminist issue.
But back to Cameron: her opinion on what women should do with their pubic hair (which she creatively refers to as ‘pretty draping’) makes a lot of sense to us.
‘I hear that there's a big fad these days of young women undergoing laser hair removal on all of their lady bits.

‘It's a personal decision, but I'm just putting it out there: Consider leaving your vagina fully dressed, ladies. Let's be honest: Just like every other part of your body, your labia major is not immune to gravity.

‘I know you may think you'll be wearing the same style of shoes forever and the same style of jeans forever, but you won't. The idea that vaginas are preferable in a hairless state is a pretty recent phenomenon. All fads change, people.’
