Romans Tweeze Their Pubes

||

Removing pubic hair seems like a pretty contemporary practice, but people have been trying to tame their pubes for centuries, apparently. The Romans would start tweezing their nether regions from the moment they appeared with a hair removal device called the “volsella.” Doesn’t sound fun to me. Who knew pubic hair had such a controversial and vibrant history? The Frisky rounds up a brief history of your down there hair.

You won’t believe what prostitutes used to do with PUBIC WIGS until you read it.
