DIAL M FOR MERKIN









What is a merkin, you may ask. I certainly asked the question when a friend mentioned she owned a merkin.

A merkin is a pubic hairpiece; yes, it’s a pubic wig, a toupee for the genitalia! Merkins were and still are generally worn by women to simulate the effect of pubic hair. Above are four merkins, though the first one looks like a cock-trap and the last one needs a vacuum-clean!

Pubic wigs have been worn by women from the mid-fifteenth century onwards. Women would often shave their pubic hair for personal hygiene but wore a merkin because pubic hair was regarded as attractive. Prostitutes would also often wear merkins to disguise the effects of sexually transmitted diseases, such as gonorrhoea and syphilis. A merkin effectively was a Tudor vajazzle!

It’s not quite clear why pubic wigs are called merkins. One explanation is that merkins were named after the element mercury, widely used to treat sexually transmitted diseases but which often led to the loss of public hair when used. Other explanations are that merkin is derived from malkin, a derogatory term for a lower-class young woman, or from Marykin, a pet name for Mary.

Nowadays merkins are sometimes worn by women and men as forms of erotica or when filming nude scenes in historical dramas set in times when pubic hair was all the rage - how times have changed! Occasionally actors and actresses wear a merkin as they don’t want to go totally nude on set.


Have you ever come across a merkin?
Would you ever wear a merkin?
Do you think pubic hair will ever come back into fashion?


I wouldn’t wear a merkin as I don’t shave or trim my pubic hair and, even though I like the au naturel look, I wouldn’t want my sexual partner to wear a merkin unless it was for a laugh! I hope pubic hair does become fashionable again as I’d be in so much demand!

Gina Gershon wore a merkin in the film Killer Joe. A special red-coloured merkin was made for Rooney Mara to wear in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo movie. Evan Rachel Wood wore a merkin in the television series, Mildred Pierce; her co-star Kate Winslet said “put a merkin on and you’ll be fine” even though she refused to wear one in The Reader film. I don’t know whether Michele Merkin, a former model and now television presenter, ever wore a merkin!

Below is Jessica Parker Kennedy, in the Black Sails television series, wearing a merkin. Inside is Amy Landecker wearing a merkin in the A Serious Man film.

I don’t think Amy Landecker needed a merkin for this scene in the film, A Serious Man, but clearly he’s a man seriously looking for bush!

I will not wear one. I do not shave any more.

The Light is shinning and she is lonely and waiting in the darkness.

Like you, I don't need a merkin. I can see their need for modern actors in an historical movie but I sure wouldn't want to glue one on that delicate area.

As for the creator ... Mercken makes melting chocolate so maybe a relative opened a side business!

Opportunity may knock only once, but temptation bangs on the door forever!

The first one is down right scary!

I'm old enough to remember when all pussies had hair, but have become quite fond of the silky smooth look (and feel!)

Happy HNW.

Given it's medieval origins, I think it is one size fits all! Capitalism gives us too much choice sometimes!

It's all down to what we want, but my pubic hair is softer than the stubble I'd leave behind if I had shaved!.

Have you ever come across a merkin? Oh yes, many times; they are yummy. But not quite as scrummy as a Cadbury Creme Egg!

Merckens chocolate is manufactured by Cargill.
https://www.cargill.com/food-beverage/na/merckens

Would you ever wear a merkin? Well I could, but wouldn't it melt? It's better to eat it than to wear it.

Do you think pubic hair will ever come back into fashion?
Is it not in fashion?

Oh wait, we're not talking about the same thing, are we? I thought we were and merkin was the British (mis)spelling of mercken... never mind then.

While I've had peanut butter in my chocolate, a merkin or any kind of hair, especially pubic hair in my chocolate would be revolting.

I would definitely lick a mercken off a merkin but not a merkin off a mercken!
