Hello, everyone. We are gathered here today to talk about something very important, yet something terribly overlooked. We’re going to talk about the importance of grooming one’s pubes.

According to a new survey, the way you take care of your briar patch is very important, and can even potentially end your relationship if you get sloppy with it and let it grow a little too free and wooly.

The brand spankin’ new survey from collected data from Cosmopolitan’s social media accounts, Esquire’s Twitter, and Ask Men’s Facebook account, and found that 92 percent of people groom their pubic hair. Well, duh. It’s not the ’70s anymore. Obviously most people are well-groomed down there.

As you can see in the graph above, the survey found that there’s a pretty big difference between men and women when it comes to keeping their bush tidy: while 69 percent men prefer to simply trim their pubes and keep things shipshape, the majority of women, meaning 57 percent, go for the Brazilian and get rid of everything on their lady garden for optimum tidiness.

Another thing the survey looked at was whether or not people expected their partners to prune and shear their shrubbery, and found that men definitely expected their partners to be groomed. In fact, 46 percent of men said they prefer their partners to be completely hairless.

Women, on the other hand, said they prefer the dude they’re sleeping with to be nicely manscaped, as opposed to being completely clean shaven.

Interestingly enough, the survey found that 40 percent of men have asked their partners to change their style of grooming, whereas only 23 percent of women have asked their partner to manscape a little differently. Perhaps to trim a little more around the edges, or something.

Lastly, it was discovered that some people think the way someone’s pubes look is enough to break up with them. 30 percent of men in the survey expressed that they’d consider dumping their girlfriend if he wasn’t too fond of her carpet, relative to only 19 percent of women.

Well, damn. Breaking up with someone just because you don’t like their pubes is pretty gratuitous, but that’s okay. Whatever floats your boat.

And just for the hell of it, here is a graph of reasons why people mow their lawn:

Well, now you know some important stats about pubic hair. Do with it what you will.
