Ever Wondered What's The Reason Why We Have Butt Hair?

If you would have a quick look at the anatomical and physiological components of the human body, you will be amazed. Almost everything you can see has specific roles, and studying more about it would even heighten our appreciation to our body. Nevertheless, questions still knock into our intellect because some parts and elements attached to our lovely bodies have no clear roles, and we did not really know how they come about. For example, it was established years before that appendix is just an accessory organ, with not-so-important-and-almost-useless features; and we cannot blame it for being there.

Recently, in a science-oriented vlog, SciShow raised some information to address their random subscriber's question: what is the role of butt hairs, and how did they come about.

The best thing that could be done is to theorise its origin.

Intelligent design. Isn't it?

Maybe yes, maybe no.

Second, to cover and get hold of human scent originating from the anus.

Other body hair like in the head, skin, armpit, pubic region, above the lips, chin area, eyes area, etc. help the body to hold oils which contain body smell. Like other animals, these oils (which can be pheromones) can attract same species.

This is how the hair holds stuff.

Did you see some oils and bacteria?

Third, hair exists because of friction.

In the course of human existence, we can feel that our butts are rubbing against each other. To keep up with irritation, rashes, bleeding or whatsoever, our body has developed this feature.
