Swedish pools ban shaving in shower

Nov. 16, 2012 at 12:29 PM

VAXJO, Sweden, Nov. 16 (UPI) -- A Swedish swimming pool operator said women will no longer be allowed to shave in the showers at the company's facilities.

Medley, which runs pools across the country, has placed signs in women's shower rooms at all of the company's facilities asking women to refrain from shaving in the showers, The Local.se reported Friday.

The company said the ban came after complaints from patrons about the public shaving.

"They felt uncomfortable watching other women shave in public and think that they should be doing that at home -- and the company agrees," said Josefin Kejder, who manages a Medley pool in Vaxjo.

Kejder said signs have not been posted in the men's showers because there have not been complaints about men shaving.

"I think women shave more than men in general. And it is also a question of hygiene with hair getting stuck in the drains," she said.
