What pubic hair?

10-02-2001, 11:55 PM
Well, based on a porn I watched recently, back hair, ass hair, chest hair, and pubic hair all grey somewhat. In this case it was mostly a salt and pepper look. I can;t comment on his head cause it was bald.

The answer is...sometimes.

This thread is...closed.

Thread re-opened and re-named to make it a poll, not a request for a specific fact.

Mine hasn't started turning yet.

At 47, my 'graying inventory' looks like this:

Head, beard, moustache - all turning gray.
Nose hairs (yes, nose hairs - that one freaked me out when I first noticed!) - turning gray.

Pubic hair - no gray hairs yet.
Underarms - ditto.

If this is TMI, well, you asked. :)

I can't believe I am answering this but, I am 35 and I have no grey hairs on my head but surprisingly I have noticed sadly enough lately that yes they do start turning grey down there and it hurts like hell if you try to pluck them out :-(

I won't mind when they turn grey but I will refuse to combover.

Scene: Sitting shivah after my great uncle's funeral.

My great aunt (who was in her 80s at the time) was lamenting to me about how her formerly red hair had turned gray, and how hard it was to dye it a natural looking red.

Just at the point there was a lull in the conversation in the room, she loudly said "But my pubic hair is as bright red as ever!" :o

She's 94 now, but I can't think of a polite way to ask her if she's turned gray "down there" yet.

Based on personal information, yes. So does leg and armpit hair, if you really want to know.

It turns. Depending on who it is it seems to turn in cycles. My first ex had his temples and beard turn grey first. Then his chest hair, some of his back hair near the top, and then his pubes went salt and pepper. Sigh, he only got hotter as he got older. My youngest sister said he looked like Santa when he had his full beard even though the majority of his head hair was still brown. (This all happened to him when he was still in his 30's.)

An ex literally had bicolored balls - left, normal coloring, the right, salt n pepper(at the grand old age of 27). His head and other body hair had a few grey hairs, but not as dramatic as the 'nads.

Head and mustache = totally gray
Beard = salt and pepper
All other hair = black, no gray at all.

Yes, and I don't want to talk about it any more, thank you very much.

10-04-2001, 06:00 PM
Yes, (large sigh).

"Hey... no hair, no problem."

Top of the head and beard - white.

Everything else is salt and pepper, all the way down.

Oddly enough, I have quite a bit of red hair in my moustache, and my hair on top and my beard used to be very dark brown, almost black.

Yes, but only if you count scrotal hair as pubic hair.
