Re: Public hair and the decision to shave or not: Not mentioned is that in the early days of nudism in America there was a lot of back and forth about whether or not nudist magazines represent pornography. The US Postmaster General imposed the following criteria: Pictures depicting pubic hair cross the line and are obscene. So early nudists did shave that area.

Back in the early 1960's here in the United States, and probably before, the pictures in nudist oriented magazines had the genitals actually airbrushed out. It wasn't a matter of removing pubic hair, but actually not showing genitals, and sometimes even a female's breasts. The trend of removing or not removing pubic hair has been changing back and forth for thousands of years. Personally, I consider a woman's natural pubic hair to be one of the most beautiful things on this earth, and I also prefer men to have their pubic hair. One thing that really bothers me though, is people who deface their body with tattoos! I did enjoy this podcast very much.
