The Pubic Region Exposed

This morning I read a blurb from an upcoming Kate Winslet interview in the new issue of Allure magazine. She talked about her nether region, her kitty cat area, and this is what she said:

Let me tell you, The Reader was not glamorous for me in terms of body-hair maintenance. I had to grow it in, because you can’t have a landing strip in 1950, you know? And then because of years of waxing, as all of us girls know, it doesn’t come back quite the way it used to. They even made me a merkin because they were so concerned that I might not be able to grow enough. I said, “Guys, I am going to have to draw the line at a pubic wig. But you can shoot my snatch up close and personal.”

Reading about a merkin got me to thinking, so I did a little research and this is what I found out:

The pubic wig, most affectionately know as the merkin, is centuries old (some accounts dating it to 1450 AD), having first been used by women and prostitutes who shaved “down there” to combat lice. How romantic.

Now that men are doing a lot of “manscaping” it seems that there should be a complete line of merkins for men. There could be various styles and hair densities, and shapes galore. The bushy bush, the Errol Flynn pencil thin mustache bush, the Adolf Hitler fuhrer bush, the bushy jungle look, or the handle bar mustache bush (which would be like having handles down there for someone to hold on to). They could come in all sorts of colors too; blond, red, brown, black, blue, green, etc. And let’s not forget the dreadlock bush, the braided bush, or the ultimate bush that leads from the chest to the genitals.

I’m thinking of starting my own line of celebrity merkins, so you too could have your pubic area look like your favorite celebrity’s bush. There could be the Brad Pitt, the Angelina Jolie, the Seth Rogan, the Lindsay Lohan, the Ryan Seacrest, the Justin Timberlake, the George W. Bush terrorist bush, or the Dick Cheney rainbow colored bush. The possibilities are endless.

I definitely see a reality show in this idea. “So You Want To Have A Celebrity Bush...”
