Here's What You Need to Know When the 46-year-old decided to chop off her famous locks for a super short pixie, the first thought that came to mind was, well, the bedroom. “I have a friend who is an awesome, studly man, and he goes, ‘You know, some women cut their hair and it makes them look even more masculine, but you look even more feminine,” explained Pamela Anderson to Elle Magazine. “I thought it would be weird having sex with short hair, but then I kind of got into the mode.” But how could something as simple as hair impact the sex life of a former Playboy pin-up?
