Sexuality researcher Debra Herbenick and her coauthors wanted to find out how American women deal with their pubic hair on a day-to-day basis. So they got 2,453 women from the ages of 18-68 to complete daily online diaries for five weeks about their pubic hair removal habits and their sex lives. They were able to learn how many times women removed hair during the five-week period, how they did it, and how it correlated with their sexual activity. A sampling of the results:
