Not a chance. Google vintage porn. Nothing short of '99-01 has it.

About the same "time" women started getting covered in tats and piercing every thing as well.

What a turnoff and mood killer.

Woman have been shaving delicate areas for at least 20 something years as it's a must for any woman/girl in today's age.

Granted there where women shaving those parts 50 or god knows how many years ago too...but the changer is MEN shaving!

The young men now must shave their bod's from what i see and the guys i work with. Their gals demand it.

Tried it once and that was it for me, the hell with that shiiit..

Classic triangle and also wide strips preferred.

Smooth lips and a landing strip.

Once upon a time, showing pubic hair was considered obscene. All the early Playboy playmates were shaved. I don't know when it started, but certainly by the '50s.

Just out of curiosity, how did women shave in the early 1900s? Or, did they? Back then I know that men shaved their faces with a straight razor & soap in a cup & used a razor strop. Did women use straight razors, too, or because they were more covered up with the fashions of the time, not bother to shave? I'm assuming they didn't worry about bikini lines, but I was wondering about legs/underarms.

I also read that waxing is credited to Cleopatra, although I never bothered looking further into it & am unsure which part of the body she was waxing.

Yep, this is one area where I don't favor hardwood floors. Neither am I a fan of body piercings and tattoos on a woman.

Gillette invented the Safety Razor in the 1880s, with the small removable double-edged blade,which is what everybody used until Gillette introduced the Good News in 1976, a throwaway razor with an embedded blade.

Women started shaving their legs right after WWII, when nylon stockings were introduced, replacing opaque hose that did not show leg hairs when worn.
