Matters arising

The new detective series coming to ITV1 'Ruskin and Pubes'...

The general feeling seems to be that it's a myth, I infer, for example...

"But Ruskin told his parents in a letter that he had undergraduate acquaintances at Oxford whose drawers were full of "pictures of naked bawds" – presumably unclipped ones. And the Victorian painter William Etty (see above) did pictures which presented the female form in fully unshorn form. So the pubic hair thesis, if not quite untenable, is rather less than convincing."
