Pubic Lice are becoming an endangered species. As cases of this parasite become less and less common, doctors think that the popularity of bikini waxing, and in particular Brazilian waxing has played a large role in this development.
For example, in Australia, no women have been seen with crabs at Sydney’s main sexual health clinic since 2008.
Male cases have fallen 80% in 10 years.
Unlike with other endangered species, no one is mourning this loss.
Scientists say that destroying their habitat is good, and we’ll continue doing it: about 80% of college students say they remove their pubic hair these days.
