Pubic hair preferences

This week we take a look at genders' preferences on pubic hair.  Pubic hair, or the hair found in the genital area, has been the topic of discussion for centuries. There has even been evidence of pubic hair removal in ancient India over 6000 years ago, while in the Middle Ages, British prostitutes removed their pubes in order to combat pubic lice.   And although women's pubic hair has been talked over for so long, men's approach to grooming their nether regions has only been a recent phenomenon.

Females are born with all the premature egg cells (oocytes) they will ever have and no new ones will be made during their lifetime.  A female is born with approximately 1,000,000 oocytes. Many oocytes will die before the female reaches puberty, in a rate of about 10,000 per month, and thus the total number which will remain is nearly 300,000.  The number of eggs that die after the start of the menstrual cycle, is reduced by 1,000 per month, or about 30 per day.  During the ovulation, only a single oocyte will mature and become an ovum. When the female runs out of eggs, most often around their 50s, the ovaries cease to make oestrogen, and so the menopause begins.  The human ovum measures approximately 0.13 mm (0.0051 in) in diameter, or about 1/4 the size of a grain of salt.  The human ovum is also about 25 times larger than the hea
