Is the removal of pubic hair using a special wax, which can be hot or cold, that adheres to hairs and pulls them out when the wax is removed quickly from the skin, usually with a cloth strip. While the practice is mainly associated with women, men remove pubic hair at times as well.
A bikini line is the area of the upper leg and inner thigh where pubic hair grows that normally is not covered by the bottom part of a swimsuit. In some cultures, visible pubic hair in this region is disapproved of and/or considered embarrassing, so it is sometimes removed. However, some people remove pubic hair that will not be exposed for aesthetic purposes, personal grooming and hygiene, culture, fashion or other reasons.
