Flashy Pubes in Amanda Palmer’s Music Video: Map of Tasmania

Shave it? Wax it? Au Naturale? Landing Strip? With so many options for our curly hairs down there, it’s hard to know what’s really best for you. There are so many pubic hair styles to choose from! So man ways to feature one’s vulva! But personally, I’m on par with the message of my new favorite song, Map of Tasmania by Amanda Palmer & The Young Punx. Check out the video:

My friend Srishti, who sent this my way as a possible blog topic, will definitely slap me for not going into the deeper feminist context of the meaning behind this song. But it’s late, I’m tired, and quite frankly, the awesome lyrics speak for themselves:

Soft and sweet and shaped like a triangle
Some girls want no shape and they shave it all
That’s so whack, it hurts with the stubble
Walking ’round and look like an eight-year-old
Soft and sweet and shaped like a triangle
Some girls want no shape and they shave it all
That’s so whack, it hurts with the stubble
Walking ’round and look like an eight-year-old

I say grow that shit like a jungle
Give ‘em something strong to hold onto
Let it fly in the open wind
If it get too bushy, you can trim

Let’s take this bottomless case straight to the court
Freedom down there, i swear, do you see me smirkin’?
Do you see me wearing a merkin ?
Get in the formation let start
Triangle jerkin’
Triangle jerkin’

Oh, and enjoy the screenshots of these creative merkins! From left to right, there’s a bird in a nest, a lego merkin, curlers, and a merkin a la The Scream. How will your decorate your vulva? Or style your pubic hair?

    “Map of Tazzie” is one of my favorite Aussie expressions. You can even buy underwear that says “Map of Tazzie” in the souvenir shops around Melbourne.
