Pubic hair is a hushed topic often fraught with all sorts of controversy, but a famous Instagrammer is bringing the issue to the forefront in the hopes of clarifying things for her young audience.
Sjana Earp, whose Instagram account totals almost one million subscribers, took to her YouTube channel to educate her viewership (which consists of many younger women) on how to remove pubic hair in a safe and clean way, should they choose to do so.
However, one of the coolest parts of this video is the fact that Earp makes it clear that deciding to remove pubic hair is a personal choice, and that there’s nothing wrong with leaving it there (in fact, Earp points out, it’s natural and healthy to have hair down there!).
While this video might seem like a tiny thing in the world of women’s health, keep in mind Earp’s reach: Many young and impressionable girls look up to her, and it’s refreshing to see a social media influencer using their impact to 1) be shame-free about women’s health, and 2) to let girls know that they get to choose what they do to their bodies, not society.
