What is with Howard's obsession with shaved pubic hairs? Any amateur psychological opinions? He shaves himself clean, doesn't he? And he's got Sal and Richard looking even more repulsive clean shaven. He might be interested in this from Wikipedia: Trimming or completely removing pubic hair has become a custom in many cultures. In Islamic societies, for example, removing the pubic hair is a religiously endorsed practice. A preference for hairless genitals is known as acomoclitism. The method of removing hair is called depilation (when removing only the hair above the skin) or epilation (when removing the entire hair). The trimming or removal of body hair by men is sometimes referred to as manscaping.
