Rug Match the Merkin? Yes

3 min read


Author’s Note: Ever since I became the “Sexclamations” columnist I have tried and failed many times to describe the amazingness of the merkin, or pubic wig.
Merkin has even become one of my favorite words and as an English major that’s a pretty big deal.
A merkin is one of the funniest and most bizzare sexual accessories I have come across and enjoy using the word as often as possible.
So rather than fail at attempting another Merkin article, I have decided that the best way to breach the very concept of a pubic wig is through a fake advertisement.
I hope you enjoy it and now understand the mighty power that the merkin holds for all:

Are you a prostitute from the 1600’s? Do you have uninvited guests down below that you just can’t seem to shake off? Contracted syphilis and don’t want your clientele to know about it?

At tri-M’s Merkin Shoppe we provide a various number of models from all-natural to tie-dye to heart shaped, cat shaped, and even padlock-shaped works.

Today, everyone is wearing them, whether at home, in a show or at the club scene, merkins are taking the world by storm!
