Original Starting post for this thread:
"Merkin is a pubic wig. Merkins were originally worn by prostitutes after shaving their genitalia, and are now used as decorative items, erotic devices, or in films, by both men and women."

"The Oxford Companion to the Body dates the origin of the pubic wig to the 1450s. According to the publication, women would shave their pubic hair for personal hygiene and to combat pubic lice. They would then don a merkin. Also, prostitutes would wear a merkin to cover up signs of disease, such as syphilis.

It has also been suggested that when male actors played female parts onstage, they would cover their genitals with a merkin so they could expose themselves as women in nude scenes.

According to the Oxford English Dictionary first use of the term itself was in 1617." ===============

as I just pointed out in Women talk yes this is the origin of merkins. However in the burlesque world they are not made of hair or fur and are sparkly creations that we strip down to much like our pasties and usually they match our pasties so if we are doing say a cupcake themed routine there would be a sparkly cupcake merkin. Not all dancers will use merkins because you have to use adhesive to secure them and much like our pasties they are prone to wardrobe malfunction. A different version with a thong like strap that covers all the way up the ass crack is called a C-cup.
