Dr. Adeolu said complete shaving of the pubic hair could cause infection and advised trimming of the hair in an interview with Vanguard.

He stated that shaving or waxing of the hair around the pubic could cause cracks and expose the skin to bacterial infection.

He explained that the essence of pubic hair particularly during sexual intercourse is to prevent the skin from rubbing against another and causing damage.

“When you shave, you cause some level of abrasion in the area which opens up the skin. These small openings cannot be seen with the eye but they are big enough for the micro organisms to get into the body.

“Also, because the pubic area is always moist, this serves as breeding ground for organisms like bacteria.” Adeolu said.

Advised the trimming of pubic hair, he said it would help to reduce the risk of contacting Sexually Transmitted Infection (STI), which could also be contacted when fluid from an infected partner’s genitalia came into contact with the pubic area.
