Clinical Study By Dr Philippa McCaffery
No Hair Vs Hair Down There
If you asked any woman if they have ever had a ‘Brazilian’, I am sure most of them would not be thinking about a tall dark handsome man who speaks Portuguese.
The term ‘brazilian’ to most women means to remove or mostly remove your pubic hair. There has been a lot of debate and speculation around whether hair or no hair is best and why women get a ‘brazilian’ done.
Gwyneth Paltrow, claims Brazilians “changed her life”, and Eva Longoria said to Famous magazine, “It makes sex better,I love it, I swear by it. Every woman should try a Brazilian once. And the sex they have afterwards will make them keep coming back.”
At Clearskincare Clinics we wanted the facts around what was driving the ‘brazilian’ phenomenon, so Dr Philippa McCaffery completed a study for the Cosmetic Physicanisn society that aimed to understand why the “brazilian” has become, in less than a decade, such a broadly requested pubic hair reduction method for women.
Dr McCaffery surveyed 90 clients from various clinics around Sydney asking them what were the main reasons women were seeking the ‘brazlian’ as the preffered pubic hair removal. Was it for cultural or religious reasons, aesthetic reasons or simply a fashion trend? Other questions included do women feel “ cleaner” removing all their pubic hair and, does removing pubic hair enhance sexual pleasure.
The results were fascinating 75% of the clients reported “ aesthetic” as a reason for removing their pubic hair, 71% reported “hygiene” and 17% reported “cultural” as their main reasons.
In regards to sexual pleasure, 63% of clients of the clients asked reported feeling “sexier” with minimal or no pubic hair, 60% of clients reported experiencing greater sexual pleasure with minimal or no pubic hair and 61% of clients said they would recommend “brazilian” hair removal to other women as a way of improving their sex life.
After receiving this feedback, Clearskincare Clinics can understand why the ‘brazilian’ has become such a popular treatment. If someone said to me there is a treatment that makes my downstairs look great and increases sexual pleasure I would be booking in asap!
