Q & A. What is the definition of a Merkin?
So you may be looking at this and wondering…what the hell is a Merkin? Well, a Merkin is…
The Oxford Companion to the Body dates the origin of the pubic wig to 1450. Women would shave their pubic hair and wear a merkin to combat pubic lice, and prostitutes would wear them to cover up signs of disease, such as syphilis.
First of all if you see a woman with a bush this vast, you might want to check your blood alcohol level before proceeding. A sure-fire way to make sure a woman isn’t wearing a merkin is to tug on her pubic hair. If she screams you should apologize and explain to her that you are a virgin and you have no idea what you are doing. If she doesn’t scream and the merkin pops loose, do not proceed without adaquate protection and ask for a discount.
