The Merkin: A Retro Style

If you’re searching for that extra something to complete your new look for a new semester, why not try a merkin?

“What’s a merkin?”

Well, I’m glad you asked. According to Wikipedia, “A merkin (first use, according to the OED, 1617) is a pubic wig, originally worn by prostitutes after shaving their genitalia to eliminate lice or disguise the marks of syphilis. There are many different ways of wearing a merkin, although most involve placing the merkin on the vulva or the scrotum.”

I think it’s just a great idea for everyone.
