I've seen some diagrams that show hair around the anus on women and others that don't.
So I thought an anonymous poll would be the best way to answer this question.

Mom of a 7 yr old, 4 yr old, and 1 yr old. Wow. How did that happen?

oh, dear, I'm afraid I'm the first to answer! lol

it's funny because just this morning, I was nekkid and bending over to get clothes out of the dryer when my dd said, "geez, mom, you've even got hair in your BUTT!"

Ack. Yep. I have a close girlfriend who said she could wax me and even shape up my pubes, but I just can't see why. My dh is just so happy to see that part of my body - regardless what it looks like!

Yes, I am hairy all over.:

Hereditary, I think.

My oldest son is very hairy also; I used to call him my little "sasquatch"!

He gets mad because he is 19!

Not so little! :

Your thread and poll made me curious.....so i checked it out. and nope, no hair around the butt.

If i was hairy there, i would probably wax it. as it is, i get bikini waxes. Never a brazillian, which is where everything goes.

I am sure Briss will be lurking heavily

I have little or no body hair anywhere. None on my butt at all. Don't hate me because I'm blonde.

I don't think I have hair on my butt, but it certainly creeps down my legs through to the perinium. Is that TMI?

Yep, me! I have hair around the butt opening. Not a lot but you can't miss it. I do trim my pubes . . . . . but only the ones I can see and reach. I'm not sure how I alone would get rid of the butt hair. And that is certainly a part of my body no stranger is going to get near so I just live with the hair there.

Oh. Okay. I heard (here on MDC, actually) that hispanics tend to have a lot of hair. This is true for me. I have a lot of hair on my head as well. In fact, I have a mane, not a head of hair. I'm not hairy anywhere else though.

Okay, I should have read better before I voted! I thought you guys were talking about pubic pubes, not butt pubes so I voted 'as much or more' cuz I have more pube pubes then I do armpit pubes, and I thought that was pretty darn common. Then I saw the results and was like, "wait a minute..."

I did get my first butt pubes when I was pregnant (as if I wasn't feeling sexy enough already) and frankly I have just been too tired to see if they are still there. Honestly, I'd rather just tell myself that they fell out postpartum then to ever know the real truth. As someone else said, my DP sees that end of me so seldom that he's not about to concern himself with the asthetics.

I don't think I'd get butt pubes waxed... unless of course, they were long enough to tickle.

: OHH MYY GOODNESSS!!! Yall are CRAZY FUNNY!!!:

I voted NO, NONE. But I too thought you were asking for PUBIC PUBES. (I am a shaven' sistah!!)
BUT my answer goes for both regions.
(YES that means I am fessing up to a few strays!) :LOL

XM, mine showed up when I got pregnant with my last child, maybe it's a hormonal thing because I know the hair wasn't always there...

And Caroline ouch! Nair burned my leg so I can't imagine...

I think mine showed up during pregnancy too along with a my thick, thick hair. But my head hair fell out.
I just use a beard trimmer on the front. I sit with my feet in the tub and dh's shaving mirror laying down, I can see pretty well that way. Maybe I should let the razor explore further?

Mom of a 7 yr old, 4 yr old, and 1 yr old. Wow. How did that happen?
