Amazing Technicolor Pubic Hair

Name Space:
Page Type:
In the wonderful world of non-live action porn, there is a tendency for pubic hair not to be darker than the hair color of the person in question, which sometimes are victims of You Gotta Have Blue Hair, thus you get the tendency of having things like blue or blonde pubic hair.

The reasons this happens is multi-fold. It could be Did Not Do The Research, especially in the case of Japanese-originated works of non-live-action pornography, where light-haired people are not as common as dark-haired people, thus the pubic hair usually matches the hair color of the person in question in real life in the author's home country.

It could be The Coconut Effect, where mismatched head and pubic hair color looks "unrealistic", even if the author is aware of the usual mismatch in color. Related but different, it could be Artistic License, where the author (and/or audience) find matching pubic and head hair color appealing.

Also note, this can be a Justified Trope for any of the above reasons, as people in real life do dye their pubic hair to match their head hair, which could also be dyed a unique color like blue.

(Porn Tropes) [If this trope doesn't meet TV Trope's wanted level of appropriateness, I will move this proposal to Fetish Fuel Wiki.]

    For future reference, blonds tend to have pubic hair at least a few shades darker than their hair, and "dark blonds" (those who would be referred to as having brown hair in Scandinavia) can have a dark dusty brown that mostly looks black from any reasonable distance. This IRL.

    I thought this was going to be a You Gotta Have Blue Pubes topic.

    I've certainly seen the opposite of this, The Upholstery Does Not Match The Curtains, as an indication that the person in question is not a natural blonde, redhead or pink-haired person.

    The Carpet Matches The Drapes, when someone proves their hair is natural by displaying their pubes. A comedy trope. Implied in Fruits Basket with Haru and the Student Council President. I've heard of this happening in real life.

    For a Laconic: "In Hentai, the carpet always matches the drapes."

    For what it's worth, I'd like you all to know that the trope title is hilarious and would make a good name for a rock band. That is all. Thank you.
