    The History of The Merkin

    A pubic wig or merkin as it was earlier known made its debut in 1450. It was used as a device to cover syphilitic pustules and gonorrheal warts in the genital area. In its contemporary form, the merkin is used as a part of erotic play, and it has also crossed over the boundaries of intimate wear into some mainstream genres of dress. The chosen material the wig is made of, usually either: nylon, yak belly or human hair, is woven onto a transparent mesh. This is then applied to the pre-shaved pubic area with spirit gum; alternatively the wig can be attached to a transparent G-string.

    The wearing of a pubic wig is a sensory experience. The wig can allow the wearer a certain "jouissance" as it is made of a fibre/hair that has been selected by the wearer, and it is worn on an erogenous zone. A fetish for the feel of either: silk, leather, fur or hair against the skin, or that of others is common, and can be incorporated into the design of a pubic wig to give heightened pleasure.

    Bondage crossed over from erotic use into couture when it first glided down a Gianni Versace catwalk in 1992; and Vivian Westwood flirted with the pubic area, using tailored fig leaves to cover modesty under transparent fabrics. There has always been a risqué element to fashion throughout the ages, whether it was bearing ankles, knees, thighs or breasts. The 'club scene' has taken fashion one step further. It has formulated its own look as pubic wigs are being worn under short 'baby doll' dresses in mainstream nightclubs, as well as being worn in private and fetish parties.

    The pubic wig is a strong device for both the exhibitionist and the voyeur. Ideally the relationship between the two is best suited as a 'performer' and 'audience' scenario. The exhibitionist is allowed freedom of movement and a confidence in the unusual and in doing so creates entertainment for the voyeur. In a professional and aesthetic capacity the wigs are frequently used by show girls.

    The pubic wig has also become an essential piece of the serious drag queens wardrobe, as it covers the genitalia that are otherwise the epitome of maleness. It is the finishing feminine touch and it is intrinsic to the pleasure of drag, as 'a little female finery creates the sexual identity in the 'role play' of the subject.

    Pubic wigs or 'body furniture can be custom made and designed to suit the wearer and their moods by tonsorial expert Rick Stonell. Two examples of his work are 'Heart' and Target'. The first is a pale pink heart shaped piece that is made from yak belly hair; the image it projects is one of virginal youth and subtleness. The colour and hair are soft and the shape is traditionally linked with love and romance. The overall look is of innocence, though ironically it is reminiscent of Eve's fig leaf! Alternatively he has created a piece that uses the shape of a target; this is made from red, white and blue nylon. The strong design, colours and fibre used in this wig, carry a bold and sexual statement of availability. The wig has a fantasy element gives the impression that it was designed with a superhero or heroine in mind. The range of pubic wigs in Rick Stonell's collection covers ever aspect of sexuality and personality from 'whore' to 'Madonna'.

    The merkin of the past were made to cover the "filthy running sores of syphilis. A disease which “eroded the palate... In some cases the lips, nose or eyes were eaten away, or on others the whole of the sexual organs”.

    Merkin were frequently connected with prostitutes. The women often worked while infected, because many of them were single mothers with no other form of income. Despite the horror of infection and the merkin's connections with it, amusing anecdotes have appear in literature such as A. Smith's: “This put a strange whim in his head - which was to get the hairy circle of her merkin... this he dried well and combed out, and then returned to the Cardinal, telling him he had brought St. Peter's beard”.

    Fortunately, the merkin is no longer needed for its original function. The idea of the merkin has been displaced in time to be re-born into a different era as the pubic wig. It is now used as an accessory to alter the appearance of the pubic hair, which is usually, when left to its own devices, unruly, coarse and shapeless. Body decoration is a primal and innate part of the human psyche, which ever way it chooses to express itself.

    That is probably the ugliest thing I have ever seen. It might be a lot cuter if they didn't use a model with stretch marks. Maybe they wanted to show what it would look like on the average looking woman. lol

    If'en your going to run with a product like this you need an unrelated but still related outside hook to build extra links around.

    Might I suggest a lot of hype about "President Merkin Muffley," the character played by Peter Sellers in the 1964 hit movie "Dr. Stangelove"?

    And I'm sure that the Earl of Rochester must have written a poem or two that mentioned it as well. That would give you some high culture to go with the high camp.

    that's i was trying to tell....

    but if you're wearing the hat for marketing or any PR, make sure the website is a little bit more than a few text blocks with a sticky graphic. otherwise any campaign doesn't work and you're in response to them...

    if you need any further info about ad serving or out of the box web hosting, please PM me

    I love the blatant plugging of your services, but you're humping the wrong leg bro because I have no involvement with this whatsoever.

    Perhaps you'd like to expand on your ideas of marketing such a product, or how you would improve this website so that others may see your god given ability and.. maybe even contact you as you so desire.

    haha, get him to offer you his ideas. Maybe we could present it to the website owner and convince them to open an affiliate program. It would be a great intro to some other services and products available around here. rofl
