I went to the gynecologist for a check up, and I had gone to one of these doctors for years and never had a problem. This one though, I had to think long and hard about what she said to me. While examining me, she said that the porn industry shames woman into not having any pubic hair and implied that was somehow why I didn't have any. It took me a while to realize what she had said when I realized, it's not okay to shame anybody, no matter the reason.
- I have been pretty luck with gynecologists thus far, but that had all changed.
- She told me that not having pubic hair was a porn industry fad and I wasn't sure I'd heard her right.
- I thought about what she said for a long time afterwards and decided it wasn't the right thing for her to tell me.
“So I asked my female friends who they went to and heard good things about a women’s health clinic in Soho. It was a perfect location, right across the street from where I worked at the time.”
