For those wondering what to do about their bikini line this year, a USA survey has revealed some interesting statistics into what is the most common practice.

  • 83.8% of women reported a history of pubic hair grooming
  • 16.2% reported having no history of pubic grooming.
  • The mean frequency was monthly
  • Top motivations for grooming included
    • hygiene purposes (59%)
    • part of their routine (46%)

  • Top situations for which they groom included:
    • sexual relations(56%)
    • holidays (46%)
