Dear Dr. Scantling,

(10 March 2000)

Q: Since menopause, I've lost a great deal of pubic hair and am embarrassed.

Dr. Scantling: Many men are turned on by things we'd never imagine. But it takes a risk and some courage to speak from our gut. If we're going to take our underwear off with someone, we can certainly be honest, true? If not, we shouldn't be sleeping with him to begin with.
