Pubic hair grows around the penis, the testes, the anus and the top of the thighs. Pubic hair is usually different than the hair that grows on your head. The hair may be coarser, curlier and different in colour; and some people have more hair than others, this is all normal.

Some people choose to trim or remove their pubic hair. This is a personal choice and there are no health reasons for doing this. The skin around the genitals is delicate and sensitive, and hair removal methods do have possible risks. If you are thinking about hair removal, it can be a good idea to talk to someone you trust who can give you information and help you to make your decision.
