For years women have been triming, shaping and whipping off their pubic fuzz for us guys. But now it appears the furry tides have turned and they want the favour back.

So-called manscapping is becoming increasingly popular with normal-ish blokes, whether it’s a neat trim (the faux natural) or a more radical de-fuzzing to make your penis look bigger (the super enhancer).

It’s enough to leave the more traditional bloke standing naked and confused in a bathroom with a pair of scissors – which is never a strong look.

So we’ve done the decent thing and took to the streets to ask real-life ladies what they expect in your pants.

“I don’t want a guy’s pubes to be out of control. They should trim it with scissors, but shaving is a big no-no.”
