  1. Yes, I was reading about this recently… how hair is supposed to mean the beast-like nature of women, their overwhelming sexuality, a lack of virtue. That’s why for the longest time most women featured in art had no body hair. When Modigliani and others painted their female nudes with body hair, they were considered controversial and oversexed because of that.
