Being new to being shaved and living in a small community I am interested in what others in a simular environment have experienced with medical people on routine visits or otherwise when the exam requires a pelvic area exposure. For instance, here a call to 911 would probably bring friends or at least people who know me and my business.

This reply is coming from a surgeon who sees both elective and emergency cases.

Many young and middle aged adults seem to so some kind of genital area grooming. Tattoos and piercings are increasingly common. Simply having shaved pubic hair today brings no more recognition than shaved underarm areas--no health care worker notices or can remember.

For what it's worth, the majority of people (men and women) who are tanned come in with no tan lines. Some are tanning in salons. Others in their backyards. Perhaps a few practice social nudity. Regardless, the absence of tan lines is so frequent that it is not noticed in any individual.

Small town, big town, it's pretty much the same everywhere. This should not cause you any concern.

Thanks for the insight. It is especially good to hear from a health care professional. I guess being new to shaving the genitals makes me sensitive to what may be rumored around the hospital.

I am glad to see the question and response. I too am scheduled for my annual exam and for the first time I'll be arriving smooth. I was a little apprehensive about what my doctor might think.

I have had an annual physical every year for the past 10-12 years. I have never had tan lines during this time, nothing was ever said other than, "make sure you use sunscreen."

We have been mostly smooth for about the past three years. Both of us have had doctors visits and physicals, my wife used to try and grow her pubic hair back before her annual pap smear visits but last year she decided she wasn't going to do that anymore and remained smooth.

Last year I had my annual physical and was shaved and had a female doctor. Again, nothing mentioned or said.

As the doctor here stated, the medical professionals have seen it all and they aren't surprised or do they pay much attention to whether the patient is shaved, trimmed, or natural.

FireProf, Each year I get my mammogram right before Nat'l Nude Week. The xray techs look forward to getting the pins I get from AANR for NNW and my doctor always puts one of the ones I give him/his staff on his lab coat.

As someone who isn't a medical doctor,but has had several in his family (including my father, who was my own physician until his death about 10 years ago) I would just add that doctors have a duty to their patients to be professional, so that even if a doctor was not used to seeing someone who had no tan lines (or piercings, or was shaved, or tattooed, or...) they would treat their patients in a professional manner. Any doctor who would say something inappropriate would be doing a disservice to the patient & that's why you don't hear anything other than a matter-of-fact comment from most physicians. You should have no fear of what the doctor might think, because although the doctor does notice & might not be into any of the aforementioned it would be highly unlikely for him/her to comment negatively about it.

Cheri,

I think our family doctor would have supported any nudist organization we belonged to and may have worn a pin if I had one to give him...but he decided to become a politician instead.

Now we have another politician in the city and are less one great doctor.

We saw him alot more when he was our doctor...funny, shouldn't that be the other way around, seeing someone less as a doctor than a politician1?

There isn't much an experienced doc hasn't seen. I imagine a guy who is only shaved would be pretty routine.

I would guess you are probably right with so many different things to do with you body out there like piercing and tatoos, a shaved person would probably not rate to high on the scale.

Where all the above was very interesting, I feel like I'm missing something? Except for the reasons one might have wearing skimpy bathing suits, is it popular to shave "down" there, with both men and women? Just wondering....have seen men and women shaved...but it sounds like it is more popular than I realized?

Have a Great Day! Steven

More of a fashion trend I would think. We do it for ourselves and each other not for anyone else.

There are alot more men and women that are shaving completely or at least trimming. I think it started with the smaller bikinis for women. They would trim their pubic hair so it wouldn't stick out from their bottoms. The bottoms got smaller, the trimming got more extensive and now we have models in magazines completely shaved for whatever reasons so many women followed suit.

Many smoothies have different reasons from looks better to sexual reasons. What's nice about being a nudist is that you don't really worry about it or question it, you except the person for the person and not the amount of pubic hair they have or don't have.

but...to stay on topic...neither my or my wife's doctors have ever said anything negative to either of us the past few years that we have been almost completely smooth.

Fireproof
In our small community the volunteer firefighters are also the resque squad and they are for the most part people that I know. So I understand that the doctor will most likely not make any public deal out of my bareness but I wonder how likely it would be if I had a medical emergency that those guys responded to and observed that I was shaved to talk about it to other people that I might not want to know? You know "the talk around the firehouse"
