For ladies whose arms, lips, stomachs or other frustratingly hairy body parts require constant maintenance: there is an upside!

Yes, hirsute (hairy) women might have to shave, wax and pluck more often than the fair-haired brethren, but new research reveals hairy ladies have better sex than their less hairy counterparts. Apparently our body has two types of hair: vellus and terminal. The vellus hair is fine, non-pigmented and unresponsive to hormones. Terminal hair, on the other hand, is generally long, coarse and dark. It also changes based on our hormones.

So, the unfortunate mustache post-menopausal women often battle? That’s terminal hair on hormones. How does this relate to sex, you ask?
