Women make various sketches to answer how they shape their pubic hair (PHOTOS)

PAY-SWNS_PUBIC_STUDENTS_15Given that it’s not a topic many people discuss publicly, if a stranger started quizzing you about your pubic hair, you’d be forgiven for not answering (or running away, scared).

But that’s precisely what two Bristol University students are doing, all in the name of breaking the taboo around hair ‘down there’.

Not only that, but they’re also getting the women they’re quizzing to draw whatever it is they’ve got going on, style-wise.

Alex Heal and Jess Sartenaer’s motivation for the social experiment was a conversation they’d had with their friends, presumably about their pubic hair.

‘How do you shape your bush?’

After some initial sheepish giggles, once ambushed, the ladies did begin to open up and tell all.

One girl said it depended on the season, which is fair enough.

Another student had a more low-maintenance approach, saying she kept hers natural, simply giving it a little trim.

However, the majority admitted to being fans of a Hollywood, where all the hair is removed, or a Brazilian – where a strip is left.

Alex, a final year Politics and French student and co-head of women’s interest for UBTV, told MailOnline:

The majority of women questioned said they preferred either a Hollywood – the removal of all pubic hair – or a Brazilian – the removal of all but a strip of public hair - styles

“The idea came about when my fellow head of women’s interest, Jess Sartenaer, and I were chatting with one of our friends who was complaining about how painful, expensive and inconvenient she finds waxing.

“It got us thinking about the reasons why we put ourselves through this and started wondering if other women felt the same way.

“We both feel it is vital that the media addresses topics which have previously been seen as taboo.”
