I came of age in the '60s, so I'm a little behind in the world of body beautification. How, I'd wonder, do so many women have blond hair, curls, tan breasts? Well, of course, it's dyed, it's permed, it's a tanning booth stupid. I understand the how of the latest trend in pubic hair or lack thereof (it's waxed), but I don't get the why.

I try to keep my observations to myself on various piercings, tattoos (can't really say 'so what's up with the green teddy in a pink nightcap on your chest, dude?'), and shavings, but recently I just had to ask a twenty-something whom I've known since she was in high school about her pubic hairstyle.

The pattern, she laughed, is called a landing strip. Or did she maybe say a parking stripe? Either way, I got the point.

I too am a bit out of the loop when it comes to the pube styles of the day. It seems to be important younger and younger as well. Though last week I saw a 60 something male who had shaved his goodies. And like you, I didn't ask...

Either one is good for a laugh:)

LOL, landing strip indeed! I personally don't see why anyone would want to go to that much trouble (it must hurt when it's done, and doesn't it itch when it grows in?) but then again, I am not a young nubile girl these days so who knows what I might have done had it been popular back in my youth?
