Do gingers have ginger pubes?

She said that I wasn’t the first to ask her that! She luckily also said that she didn’t mind answering because she knew a lot of people had this question. Now of course she wouldn’t answer a stranger on the streets, but if a friend with genuine interest like me askes her, she answeres the question.

So, do gingers genuinly have ginger pubes?¬†Yes, most ginger women do also have ginger pubes. That someone is ginger doesn’t necessarily mean they have red pubes. Due to genetics, it can be that a ginger has brown pubes or even dark black. But in general, it’s true that redheads do also have red pubes.

How do genetics play a role in ginger pubic hair color?

Hair color (and therefore pubic hair color) is the result of eumelanin and pheomelanin. Eumelanin and pheomelanin are types of melanin. Ginger hair results from a genetic variant that causes the cell to produce pheomelanin. The genetic variant causes the melanocortin 1 receptor to function differently on melanocytes (a cell in the skin that produces and contains melanin), producing less eumelanin and more pheomelanin which thus causes red hair.

How does this tie in with pubic hair color…? The color of your pubic hair is closest to the natural color of your eyebrows. So, if you see a person with red hair and he/she has red eyebrows, you can be almost certain the he or she has ginger colored pubic hair as well.

How common is red pubic hair

The color of the pubic hair almost always is the same as the hair you have on your head (or your eyebrows which are a very good indicator). But as you just read, this is not always entirely the case. It all depends on amount of melanin in your body so it can be that the hair on the head or eyebrows does not match the color of the pubes.

But is red pubic hair common?

Just for this question, I’m going to assume that in most cases it is true that gingers have red pubic hair. 

Now only 2% of the entire population on earth have red hair. So that automatically means that having red pubic hair is not that common!
