It is just a personal preference and i dont see why all these women are fighting over this. I do both because Im always on the go so i dont like to keep it up i'll wax it off and let it grow for a month or so. I dont really care i guess it all depends on the guy im with and what were doing.

You nailed it.
Playboy Centerfolds started shaving/waxing it all off in the late 1990s to this century.
Playboy Centerfolds did *not* shave/wax it before then. I'm talking Centerfolds from the mid 50s up until the mid- to late 90s.
I'm also talking only about the USA.
They started to trim a bit more in the 90s, however.
I have every Playboy Centerfold on a bitTorrent file, so I know
It was considered sexy to keep hair there.
Same goes for porn during the same period.
What other reason could it be? That the women of the past were ignorant and the young women today are superior?
I doubt it.
Even the biographies of Centerfolds back in the 70s showed that even some nude models had an intellectual side
It's just that most of the the women who have answered my thread - well they're not really scholars on the subject.
Honestly, most really have no idea.
For the most part it's a very recent trend from the beginning of this century.
Sure a small minority shaved it throughout last century, but they were not mainstream.
I am actually a scholar of the female body and form.
It's in good hands with me. I treat it with loving care and give it maximum appreciation

Now don't get me started on cosmetic surgery to reduce the size of a woman's labia.
Women who do that are, in my view, totally idiotic.
So many young women think it looks ugly down there enough to pay thousands of dollars to get it looking "cuter".
Utter ridiculousness and the young women are perpetuating the stupidity.
So what? Your labia are larger, big freakin deal. Get over it. I think it's sexy.
I love women to the death, but they drive me NUTS over some of the things that go through their little heads.

Well "scholar" then you would know that in medieval times they never had it in paintings etc. Egyptians were removing hair far before the 16th century as they equated it being dirty. Just because you have a playboy addiction does not make you a "scholar" in the least. In Islamic society is is an ENDORSED practice.

It causes problems for some women...again..what we do with our bodies does not have to be about what someone thinks its "sexy" or not.

Hence my post. We aren't Islamic, but my mom has been doing it since she got married, in the 60s, and she "ain't no playboy centerfold"... LOL.

I shaved off all my bikini hair prior to ever seeing any kind of "pornographic" image or being involved with a man. As I said in other posts, it just didn't make sense for me to leave "a little bit" of hair when I shave my legs and arm-pits completely. For me it was just a matter of maintenance. I didn't stick with it because the hair grows incredibly fast and I didn't like the stubble, but once I was introduced to waxing, I was sold!

You said your mother was middle eastern, and that arab men like it. (It seems the men don't practice it themselves.)

In the US, culturally it was not normal to take it off until recently. Not that some women didn't do it, but it was not the norm. Most men, until the 90s would be a little shocked by the sight of that. I remember seeing it in a fetish mag in the 80s.

I don't know...a shaved puss in the 1930's would seem almost scandolous to me. Back then the emphasis was that anything sexual was "dirty". The US has, for the most part, been a very puritanical society...and one in which shaved pusses would not be accepted. Today, things, sexually speaking, are more open...and the emphasis is on fun. It feels good to be sexy and to have sex...hence the more open attitude towards shaving and other things considered "taboo" just 40 years ago.
