Say What? Bikini Waxes Kill Crabs?!
Public lice (aka crabs) are leaving our sacred areas and public health officials are convinced it’s because of Brazilian waxes.
Bloomberg News recently reported that Australia’s top sexual health clinic hasn’t seen a woman with pubic lice since 2008, and public health officials in the U.K. have noticed a similar trend.
Apparently going bare down there is destroying the breading ground for tiny animals to fester.
“Pubic grooming has led to a severe depletion of crab louse populations,” Ian F. Burgess, a Cambridge medical entomologist told Bloomberg. “Add to that other aspects of body hair depilation, and you can see an environmental disaster in the making for this species.”
The article also states that more than 80% of college students in the U.S. remove all or some of their pubic hair.
Alright Vixens, what do you think? Are you willing to strip the wax to kill the bloodsuckers?
