This may sound like a strange question, but I don't know anything about shaving my vagina. I grew up in a very conservative family and stuff like that was something that was never discussed. Is this something that I should do? Is it something that all/most women do? Will it feel strange? Do I need to remove all of the hair? I just really need some advice and I don't really want to ask someone in person. Thanks!

There is no health reason to shave your vagina unless you have a skin condition and your doctor recommends it. Many women do many men find it appealing. It is absolutely a matter of your personal tastes. Shaving anything feels strange, you could feel very uncomfortable, you could enjoy the sensation. You can remove all of the hair, a portion of the hair or you can sculpt the hair, whatever is to your personal sense of style.

If you're not sure if you want to shave or not my advice is to try it. The hair grows back in about a month if you don't like it. Do go to the bother of having your sex shaved at a salon the first time. It's not the easiest thing in the world to do and you can learn a lot just by watching someone else shave you and asking basic questions.

Whether or not you shave is entirely up to you. Some women prefer to shave because it makes them feel more hygienic, others prefer not to as it feels natural to them, and makes them feel more "mature".
Most women I know DO shave, but that does not make it something you SHOULD do, and does not make you "weird" if you don't. Whether or not most women do shave also depends on your culture, for example many cultures do not have an issue with body hair, whereas some do.

Some women shave all of it off, some shave some off, some only shave the bikini line to give it some shape and keep it looking neat, and some prefer not to shave at all and leave it as "nature intended"!
It's not something you should just do, it's something you should do IF you WANT to.
There is no right or wrong answer here. Whatever YOU like is what you should do.
And with regards to men, many don't give a caca one way or the other. Some prefer it if you DO shave, but you should make the decision based on what YOU like. Remove as much or as little as you like.

Leave the hairs there, all of it!
Most men; (and I am one); love plenty of hairs down there!
When you shaves it, it looks like a little girl down there! Plus: it was put there for a reason, a covering!!!

dontknow55; u can see there r lots of advice;
but if u shave, do so after a bath or shower and ALWAYS shave in the direction that the hair grows

u can also just pull out the hair; THINK of eyebrows

u can trim very short and not have the worry of ingrown hair etc and u can shave the outer areas to create a nice personalized shape

hope this helps and now go enjoy your life
