TIFU by trimming my junk [R]

4 months agoulzimate posted submission on tifu.
March 11, 2019

So, this actually happened last night. Yesterday was my wife’s birthday and as a surprise I decided to trim the jungle that resided below for some sexy time fun. Now, I'm one of those men who has a slight pot belly and over the years it has gotten bigger causing this task to be increasingly difficult. No big deal. Despite limited visibility I can generally feel my way through the deforestation, or so I thought. I get about 90% of the way through my task and all that’s left is the front of my berries. Here is where I fuck up. Usually I look down and stretch/flatten my saddlebags so I provide a flat surface for the electric trimmer to glide against. In my haste I was not looking very closely and assumed the lawn was flat. Unfortunately, it was not. The electric trimmer grabbed hold of a fold of skin and thrashed it like a dog playing with a toy. I felt a burning pain and immediately withdrew. Now, I have nicked myself before so I imagined it was just a slight cut. As I looked down I realized this was not a tiny cut. Blood was dripping off my love sac at an alarming rate. As I dab the blood and reveal the damage I am in shock. I had about 1/8 inch wound I could probably fit a pencil eraser in. I walked over to my wife and told her something happened. As I revealed my mangled manhood she let out a gasp. No sexy time tonight. We bandaged my wounded soldier as best as we could and went to sleep. Today it looks better. I think it will heal on its own without the need of an embarrassing doctor visit. Guys, make sure the lawn is flat before driving the mower over it.

UPDATE: In line at urgent Care. Thanks to those who suggested I go see a doctor. I'll post another update after.

UPDATE 2: Ok, fresh out of the docs office. 2 stitches in my sac, tetanus shot in arm, antibiotics prescribed. Thanks for all the recommendations and kind words. My soldier will live to fight another day.

UPDATE 3: So after reading so many suggestions I ordered a new trimmer specifically designed for the task. My dad always says "use the right tool for the job". I will be throwing away the ballmuncher 2000 when I get home.

UPDATE 4: Thank you all! I never imagined that posting something on reddit about my balls would be so popular! I appreciate all the suggestions and kind words. I am trying to keep up with all your comments. This has truly been an amazing experience!

UPDATE 5: It's been fun everyone! I am retiring for the night and wont be responding to any more comments today. Thank you!

EDIT: For those wondering why I didn't use a guard... I was using a guard. The skin folded and went in between one of the prongs. This was my fuckup, I didn't stretch it flat.

EDIT: For those wondering what trimmer I ordered today to replce my old one: https://www.manscaped.com/products/lawn-mower-manscaping-2

EDIT: For those who think this is a marketing Ad... I promise, it is not. If the new trimmer I bought is shit ill update this post with relevant information.

EDIT: Spelling, Formatting, Clarification

TL;DR I wasn't paying close attention when trimming my junk with an electric trimmer and sliced my sac open.

The metal end is gonna get rid of all body hair to the skin. Use it all over your body where you wanna shave. Also good for your crotch and balls. If you’ve never shaved before, trim your pubes low with scissors first, OR

Use the black end to trim your bush. It slides up and down so you can adjust the length, but I keep it as low as it will go.

I frequently shave my chest, legs, balls, and trim my bush low. This thing is perfect.

How do they get it that smooth? What does this community think of smooth vs. natural hairy assholes? What's the general consensus of twinkish bros butt hair? What does it feel like to have a smooth bottom? I. Am. Curious.

Hey this from amazon: Philips Norelco Bodygroom Series... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0037HP9OA?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share

Use the black plastic end to trim down your bush. Use the silver metal part for shaving the hair off your balls. Just be careful, it will snag if your hair is too long. I’d recommend trimming your balls with scissors, or even try the black part of this thing to start.

Philips Norelco Bodygroomer BG2040/49 - skin friendly, showerproof, body trimmer and shaver

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0037HP9OA/ref=cmswrcpapaitLzxBbB735634

It's very comfortable to use. I use the shaver screen end on my bits and the trimmer on my pits (no armpit hair is also great for odor control / hygiene). You have to be careful around the beanbag but it works great for the flatter surfaces. I use it in the shower with my target areas slathered with a good conditioner and it pretty much "bics" everything. I find a good lube like conditioner helps prevent burn.

Downside may be razor burn, ingrown hairs, or itch. Upside is you're bald and silky smooth. Hair holds odor and causes leaks around leg gathers so eliminating hair eliminates a few problems we often get. There is nothing like the feel of a diaper on clean, smooth skin.

This thing is 70 bucks and worth every penny to get a great shave and no nicks.

TIFU by letting my wife nair my butt [R]

11 months, 3 weeks agosleo82 posted submission on tifu.
July 27, 2018

The male community is pretty split on the forest vs clearing debate when it comes to bums. I happen to like a well manicured booty. Normally, I use a trimmer with no gaurd because it's fast and trying to manuver a razor back there is far too risky. I do this every couple of weeks or so.

The downside to this method is that it doesnt get super close and leaves a a little butt stubble. I was lamenting this fact to my wife when she lit up and offered up a genius solution. "You should let me nair your butt." Said she, with a gleam in her eyes. "Its easier than a trimmer and it will make your butt super smooth."

"Well, okay." Says I.

Elated, she runs to grab the tube, sits down face level with my butt and goes to town with a little more fervor than you would expect for someone tasked with rubbing cream on a hairy man butt. Marriage is strange. A few minutes later, I wash it off in the shower and we gush over how baby-smooth things are down there. I mean a baby dolphin would be jealous of this thing. It was like silk and rubber got together for a night of sweet love and produced an offspring. I finally understood what that Santara song was about. All was good in the world. Or so I thought.

The next day I noticed some slight itchiness, but I figured it would pass, so I just tried to ignore it and focused on not scratching it as best as I could. Later that night, my wife and I got undressed and got in the shower together. We were having an unrelated conversation, when I remembered the itchiness I had been feeling throughout the day and told her about it. "Well turn around so I can take a look." So I turned around, stuck it out, and awaited her analysis.

...

Dead silence.

I turned back around to find her with her hands over her mouth trying her hardest to hold in a laugh. I craned my neck and twisted my body to try to get a view myself, and I was met with a horrifying sight. Like a thief in the night, somone had stolen the silky smooth booty that was there just mere hours before and replaced it with one that was COVERED in huge, bright red bumps. Unable to contain it any longer, my wife busted out laughing, while I jumped out of the shower to inspect it closer in the mirror. Overnight, it had gone from glorious, shimmering dolphin fin to 14 year old getting slapped in the face by puberty.

My wife maintains the hypothesis that it was an alergic reaction to the hotel soap possibly somehow exacerbated by the nair, as I did get a few small bumps on other parts of my body, but nothing like the warzone that my backside now looks like.

I maintain that it was sabatoge because she was jealous and wanted to have the only smooth bum in the house.

Moral of the story: never challenge a woman's rightful status of smoothest booty.

TL;DR: I let my wife nair my butt and now it looks like Freddy Kruger face fucked a topographical map of Utah.

Miten r/Suomi sheivaa? [R]

1 year agobagoffools posted submission on Suomi.
June 20, 2018

Nyt kun tuli tuo Philipsin sheivausmainos niin tehdään ihan kunnon keskustelunavaus tästä aiheesta.

Eli mitä sheivaatte ja miten usein? Onko sheivaaminen patriarkaalista naistenalistamista vai kukin olkoon sheivaamatta jos haluaa?

Itse melkein 30 -vuotias, seurusteleva heteromies ja kainalo- sekä intiinialueen karvat olen ajellut 15 kesäisestä lähtien säännöllisen epäsäännöllisesti. Myöskin rintakarvoituksen ajelen, koska niitä nyt ei hirveästi ole. Niin sanotun "pornoviivan" jätän navan alapuolelta, mutta senkin pidän siistinä ja lyhyehkönä saksilla leikaten. Käsissäni ei ole koko ikänä kasvanut karvan karvaa joten niistä ei ole tarvinnut huolehtia. Sääret saatan tänä kesänä kokeilumielessä ajaa pois, koska niissäkään ei ole kuin pari hassua haituvaa jotka ovat niin vaaleita, että useimmiten niitä ei edes huomaa ja minulta on kysyttykkin, olenko ne ajellut. Ainakin näin kesäisin minusta on kivempi olla ilman turhaa karvaa alapäässä, pysyy raikkaampana. Hitsaantumista en ole koskaan sheivaamiseni takia kokenut, mikä on yleinen kommentti sheivaamista vastaan.

How do I deal with a hairy dick? [R]

1 year, 1 month agothaywoody posted submission on sexover30.
May 26, 2018

As I closed in on the 40 mark I started to notice my dick getting hairy. Now at 41 I have hair (and lots of it) running form the base of my dick all the way up to the head on the underside. I trim it but it is a tedious and dangerous process...and I can't get a lot of it because the hair is so fine. This is causing me to get fewer blowjobs from my wife, who has straight up told me that she does not enjoy giving BJ's with the hair there...which I understand...eating her out is way more fun when she is well trimmed. We have amazing sex and have for the last 20 years...but this is getting annoying.

My question is how do I deal with this...is there a way to maintain without using my trimmer in that sensitive area? Even with the trimmer I either miss lots of fine hair or nick myself with the shaver when trying to get real close.

Looking for recommendations on the best electric razor. I've had this for a few years:

https://www.amazon.com/Philips-Norelco-Bodygroom-7100-BG2040/dp/B0037HP9OA/ref=sr11?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1525718378&sr=1-1&keywords=phillips+norelco+7100

It's great for my pubes and decent for pits/legs/chest, but it honestly leaves a ton of spots and I feel like I have to dig that shit in so deep and go over areas a shit load of times. I've also started doing my arms recently and it just doesn't get them as smooth as I'd like.

I've tried Nair and I like the results but I think it irritates my skins, as I did it yesterday on my legs and whenever I get goose bumps rn, it feels like I'm being pricked by a 1000 needles.

Am I better off just getting some 5 blade regular razor or are there electric razors that can get me smooth af? I plan on doing my entire body neck down.

TIFU by literally tearing myself a new one [NSFW] [R]

May 5, 2018

Throwaway, for obvious reasons.

To start, it’s good to know that I’m an extremely hairy dude. So hairy, in fact, that the only places on my body that the grace of god decided to leave bare are my palms, the bottom of my feet, and my face. To all my fellow redditors not cursed with this genetic fuckall, there are a few things that this hair really gets in the way of. The most notable of them all is shitting. Taking a clean shit through a blanket of ass hair is so damned-near impossible that I had almost given up completely, until an idea dawned in my head that eventually would lead to my doom. Why not shave it?

This was about 3 months ago, and at that point I used disposable safety razors to shave. I took an old one into the shower and cleared the jungle without any issues.

My next shit was fucking glorious. I felt like a new man, and nothing could stop me from shitting cleaner than Mr Clean himself.

I carried on this practice for the next few months, dumbfounded at my newfound power. Every shit was an absolute delight and I thought I had it all. It all ended when I switched to shaving my face with a straight razor. I no longer had the tools to perform my sick ritual, and was forced to stop until I remembered to buy more safety razors (a laughable proposition). Because I was too scared to shave, the jungle was slowly allowed to grow back, and I slowly descended back into the shitty hell I had once known.

Tonight, I decided that I was done with it, and that I would face my fear. I would reclaim my glorious asscrack even if it meant getting a few tiny cuts. What could possibly go wrong?

Everything. Everything could go wrong.

I entered the shower, put my leg up, and began very confidently. The first few strokes were smooth and successful, and I perceived that as a good omen. Everything was going according to plan, except one small detail. Because of the width of my straight razor, in order to get to the hairs that really counted (the ones surrounding my anus), I had to shave with the blade facing my anus, instead of facing away, like usual. The thought “no biggie, you have steady hands” ran through my head, so I continued onward in my deforestation. I got one whole side clean, and hastily began the other side. This was when I learned that the adverb “hastily” should NEVER be used to describe shaving an asscrack. On the next sweep, I slipped, and time slowed to a halt. I knew where the blade was going to end up, and I knew that only god could stop it. When it finally hit, it didn’t hurt at all, but all I could feel was a thin strip of steel directly on my anus. It was then, that I knew I had fucked up and butterflied my anus. I removed the blood-soaked razor from my asscrack, and all that I could think of was how glad I was that I was in the shower. However, I also knew (by the amount of blood) that it was a pretty serious cut and that taking a shit for the next few weeks would suck ass.

This all happened about a half hour ago. Now I’m sitting in humiliation in front of my roommate (who has decided to turn on the movie Inception to celebrate my asscrack inside an asscrack) with alcohol soaked gauze stuffed inbetween my asscheeks. Everything burns, and god has truly left. If I can take a comfortable shit in the next few months, I’ll celebrate.

Tl;dr: I butterflied my asshole open in the shower and regret everything.

EDIT: I took the gauze out right after I wrote the post and replaced it with neosporin, also going to see a doctor today. Thanks for helping me not lose my asshole reddit!

EDIT #2: Because this actually happened a few days ago, I couldn’t post due to the weekend rule, and I was too lazy to edit it (don’t worry, the gauze of hell was only in my asscrack for 30 minutes), I can tell you guys what it’s like to take a shit.

Do you know what it’s like to have the devil crawl out of your asshole? That’s the most accurate way I can describe it. Worst part is, because the wound reopens every time I take a brollic shit and I’m not keen on losing my asshole, the process of pooping has to be followed by irrigating the wound in the shower and bandaging my poor asshole with neosporin. It would’ve been worth it to leave the jungle uncleared in the first place.

EDIT #3: I went to the doctor. Probably one of the most uncomfortable conversations I have ever had. My doctor is a really funny guy, but that only makes it worse when you are laying down on a table with your asscheeks spread after having told this tale. There’s nothing like a trained medical professional trying to contain laughter as he’s staring down your damaged exhaust port. Good news! The rift in my anus is healing, and it’s not infected! Bad news, I have to go on a liquid diet and soften the brimstone that occasionally emerges from my bottom.

It is generally recommended that you use one shaver for your face and a different one for everything else.

My favorite face shaver is a Braun series 7. I prefer its straight foil because I need to trim around the edges of my beard. I tried using a multi-head round shaver from Norelco and couldn't achieve that nice straight line.

For the rest of your body hair I recommend the Philips Norelco Bodygroom It has dual heads and is safe to use on your nether regions without risk of nicks and cuts.

Hi! First time posting here, looks pretty chill! Anyway, blah blah blah I’m pre-everything and only recently starting to take some steps out of the closet. I was showering the other day and said “fuck it, shave your legs! See what it’s like!” And 10 seconds after attempting it I realize how naive and foolish I was. I’ll spare the embarrassing details, but the job was not done, not even close. So how do you shave your legs( and other areas while I have you) without making the razor cry? Also, I’m in a situation where acquiring toiletries of my own is difficult at best so going out to buy materials will be close to impossible without some red flags going through my family. Any way I can MacGyver this?

Thanks so much! <3

You can get a cheapo beard trimmer at walmart/etc for about $10. This will become your best friend in the years to come. If you have the resources, something like this works even better since you can actually shave with it, too:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0037HP9OA

I'd also recommend something like TendSkin. I got tons of ingrown hairs when I first started because I had/have super dense, course hairs, and the tendskin really does help keep them away.

These days I epilate instead of shave. It's quite literally a pain the first few times, but the results are so much nicer and longer lasting.

I suggest this body groomer. I shave my whole body in a few minutes. They last forever, can get wet, and work on thick hair in sensitive areas. I was a professional swimmer for years and this is what I used. Pro tip- use (dry) deodorant if you get razor burn with a regular razor and turn the shower on cold if you need things to shrink.

Beard hair/ body hair trimmer with adjustable comb. [R]

2 years agolooknsharp posted submission on BuyItForLife.
June 23, 2017

Hello,

So I know this question comes up from time to time, but unfortunately the answers to others don't fit with how I use a shaver - so I was wondering if people had some advice for me!

I am basically looking for a trimmer that will do body and face hair with an adjustable comb.

I currently have a Babyliss i-trim which has an adjustable comb from 0.5-5mm. I find that this length is a bit short and limits what I do with my beard. Also - although the head seems to flex well, and the folding back comb design when you want to do edges is a nice bit of design, I seem to need to do a LOT of passes to get an even shave without straggly hairs left behind.

Add to the above that the battery isn't what it used to be and I'm looking for something better.

I have had shavers with multiple combs before and I just end up losing them, I dont have a big bathroom with much storage so any combs I dont regularly use get relegated to Narnia never to be seen again. I basically am after a single unit I can leave in the bathroom or put in my washbag and not worry about which combs need to accompany it.

I dont need a shaver - just a trimmer. I wet shave my face with a DE and electric shavers just dont seem to get close enough for me to bother.

I really dont want to end up with a separate shave for my body and face. I would rather struggle by with a face shaver which is adequate for the body like the Babyliss I have at the mo.

Shaving the nether regions means I would like something that doesn't easily get loose skin between the combs, something traditional face shavers are guilty of. The i-trim I have is actually quite good for this, with very few accidental nicks.

I had recently been eyeing up the Philips Oneblade Pro - it seemed to tick a lot of boxes but I am very put off about being locked into buying expensive disposable blades - and it doesnt really seem to be suitable for the body anyway.

The Philips bodygroom doesn't seem to be suitable for the face, although looks to be ideal for everywhere else, but as above I really don't want to end up with 2 shavers if I can possibly help it.

Lastly - spalsh/waterproof would be nice, it is in the bathroom after all.

Anyway - I think that covers my laundry list of hopes and desires. Anyone got any suggestions?

Edit: This is the best answer I have come up with so far: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Philips-Stubble-BT7202-13-Integrated/dp/B01BHW3S58/ref=sr_1_1_a_it?ie=UTF8&qid=1498223193&sr=8-1&keywords=philips+beard+trimmer+7000

Put off by potentially weak plastic in removable parts and gimmicky beard vacuum - however it's on offer at the moment at £40 making it cheaper than it's non-vacuum equivalent. I can probably deal with 2 heads.

edit2: Actually the same price as it's traditionally cheaper sibling - however the non-vacuum version is also 100% waterproof, so thats actually a big plus. Less range of adjustment tho. - anyone used one of these Philipas shavers on body hair? https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B015IU8SSW?ref=emc_b_5_t

I actually have this exact razor. The battery is fine, assuming you don't try to cover too large an area in a single session. However, if you have thick hairs like I do, you may find the cartridges getting dull much quicker than they should. I've been having trouble finding replacements lately, too, so I'll probably need to order them from Amazon or something.

I have a Phillips razor, one of those with the 3 spinning blade things, that I use to shave my face. I'm curious if there's any attagments or anything I can buy (cheap online) to trim. I want it shorter but still have some there, enough to make it even with the rest of my hair

Hey I've never posted in this sub before, I wouldn't even consider myself a "femboy" or whatever, but I thought you guys could help me out.

I hate body hair, all of it. All I have to use to shave it is a beard trimmer that looks exactly like this. I use it without a guard on my legs, thighs, and chest. Then I use it with a 1/16th gaurd for the pubic region, otherwise I get lots of ingrown hairs.

I feel like this probably isn't the right tool for the job. It takes quite a while to do, and it doesn't quite "shave" my hair, it just trims it to the point where it looks shaven. I don't know what else I could use. I don't see any mens razors advertised as "body razors" at stores, could I just use a facial razor?

Thanks guys, sorry for the kinda thrown-together post, lmk if you need more details.

The philips norelco bodygroom is a pretty decent electric shaver/trimmer that is actually marketed for guys to shave coarse body hair. https://www.amazon.com/Philips-Norelco-Bodygroom-7100-BG2040/dp/B0037HP9OA?th=1

I use it and its much much faster and easier on your skin than electric beard trimmers although it will not give you as close of a shave as a manual razor. I have very sensitive skin and somewhat thick leg hair that causes me lots of really ugly ingrown hairs if I shave and then my clothes rub the area (e.g. on my thighs or butt if I wear jeans after shaving). After trying all kinds of techniques, like shaving in the shower, using cold water to close the pores and moisturizer to treat the skin, the best technique that works for me is to use the norelco with the grain and then splash aftershave on the areas of my torso, rear and legs that I shave. The alcohol in the aftershave cleans the areas I just shaved and reduces ingrown hairs. Its not a completely hairless smooth look, but for my body that seems to be as good as I can do without incurring massive ingrown hair wrath.

I tried shaving, but it always leave a really poor result.

I tried an epilator but it hurts like fucking hell (I can only do my arms with it)

I tried VEET cream and it left my skin badly damaged (it didn't even heal yet and I'm very worried about it)

One other thing I just thought of -- have you tried an electric razor? I use a norelco body groomer for my chest, stomach, arms, and thighs since there's just too much there to deal with a regular razor. I like that model because the shaver head has a trimmer next to the shaving foil, so you can cut long hairs completely down in just one pass.

It's not as close a shave as a blade, but pretty damn close, and a lot faster/easier.

Maybe one or two of you reading this, may have seen my previous post, in my adventures into DE wet shaving.

I felt like I had gotten to a point with my face, that I felt that SO's request for nether-region grooming (which my fiance likes) to be the ultimate test of focus. So far, so good.

Unfortunately, in my most recent pass down there (while talking to my fiance in the other room), I had told her that our proposed Date Night would be a real Treat.

I should have known better. Saying the word "Treat" in my house causes my 140 pound Rottweiler to go crazy. He barreled into the bathroom, sat up like a soldier, tongue hanging out,expecting his Treat, and I ended up making a lateral slice down there as a result.

I put all the Styptic I had.

I tried to keep this image tasteful. You're not gonna see my junk or anything, but here's the damage (No need look at the pic, because it looks way worse than it is). http://talentry.net/wp-content/uploads/2016/11/rw.jpg

Whether or not you saw the pic (hopefully not), what you would see is a lot of black clotting from the styptic. The bleeding is done. What should I do from here? I have alum, etc. And if necessary access to coagulants.

Wet DE shaving was going so well. I will never, ever say the word "treat" again in presence of my dog.

So my little brother had his first experience going bald eagle, with the thrill of experiencing razor burn on the goods from using an old disposable razor. His birthday is coming up and I thought I'd get him a good body and facial hair trimmer as well as some lotion that won't clog his pores. He's currently on some prescribed face wash / ointment for his acne and I'm not sure if the Nivea Men face lotion that I use is non-comedogenic.

Are there any suggestions for a kid his age? I'd like to spend under $50. I'm currently using a decent Philips Norelco that I picked up from Wal-Mart for about $20. It's got pretty good reviews and I think is Amazon's best seller in the category, but wasn't sure if there was anything else that might be good that he wouldn't have much trouble grooming face and body with.

Thanks!

I'm being serious. Without having to go to someone else, is it possible to do on your own? I have a shaver thingy specifically for my back but not for the bum as I don't know how to do it.

I've seen this guide rated pretty highly. It's written for women, but the same principles should apply.

I don't shave my bum personally, but I'll shave my balls and I just use the Norelco Bodygroom which is kinda pricey but the whole "not drawing blood" mental health boost has been worth the price. Might be more tricky to do your bum (i.e. mirrors or a very close friend are probably needed), but it should work just as well.

Shaved in my pubic area last week got an ingrown hair and it hurt so bad. I just usually shave with a normal razor from dsc. It was on its second use and could have been dirty. I'm done using a razor. Can you guys recommend a electric shaver so I can avoid in grown hairs in the pubic region. Thank you.

Shaving the balls is so dangerous,and waxing is painful.Grooming the dong is easy,the balls are hard and risky tough.

So what's the safest method to groom the package.

Personally i use old spice shaving cream down there but it gets itchy after a while in the bikini line,and i hate it and there are red bumps which itch.There must be a better method right ?

First I use the Norelco Bodygroom to trim the hair down as short as possible

Then I use a razor, Gilette Mach 5

I don't use shaving cream, I use hair conditioner. It's cheaper and last way longer. Afterwards I make sure to clean the razor with some body wash or soap.

First off I'm a virgin right now but hopefully will take care of that once I go to college in the fall. I really don't like the idea of shaving or waxing any part of my pubic area. It sounds itchy and painful and time consuming. Right now I trim my pubes with scissors so it's not a jungle but it's definitely more than a landing strip. Is this still too much for guys my age? Can I expect some of them to not do oral? I know a nice guy wouldn't judge, I should embrace my body blah blah blah but I want to know what kinds of reactions to my pubic hair would be realistic from college aged guys. Thanks

Best electric trimmer for bikini area? [R]

3 years agoBaial posted submission on TheGirlSurvivalGuide.
July 1, 2016

Hey all- So I've given up on shaving my pubes down to the skin because A) it takes for goddamn ever and B) the ingrown hairs are a bitch and I'm way sensitive. I've been letting things grow freely recently, which I don't necessarily mind, but when it comes to sexy times, I'm not a fan of the bush. Plus it's got a stronger smell (and I'm an avid biker, so there's often a lot of sweat/friction down there...).

So, what I'd like to start doing is just trimming the hair down to a half inch or so. I've tried to get at this with scissors, but that's a freakin' mess and just looks patchy and awkward. Any of you out there just trim things up rather than shave it all off? What methods do you use? Are there good electric razors that have the option to limit a trim? Any other tips would be great too.

or this:

https://www.amazon.com/Philips-Norelco-Multigroom-attachments-QG3330/dp/B00ARF42H0/

While both do their job well enough, they are hardly a purpose built product. Instead they aim to please by being an all-in one solution and instead of performing great in a single area they half-heartedly attack shaving, trimming, nosehair grooming etc.

You need to decide on what length of hair you want. If you want it all gone then I recommend laser hair removal. It has worked wonders on members of one side of my family whose ethinc background has endowed them with "hairy genes". They once tried to shave and trim but when hair is to be found all over grooming becomes a full time job. Not to mention if you cut it really short (rather than shave) you run the risk of the rough stubble irritating your skin. This can be a particular problem behind the scrotum and between the thighs.

If you just want to trim it to a set length then I would recommend a beard trimmer over a "body groomer", they are generally of a higher quality. Using combs of various length will help you trim your hair to the desired length. Short so it sits flat but not irritating, it's amazing how much more bare your arms will look once you knock the curl off the hair. Wahl is currently my most recommended general purpose beard trimmer. The lithium ion all in on is affordable and effective. Disregard all the extra accessories, the detail trimmer blade is stamped and blunts quickly and the less said about the nose hair trimmer the better. But the trimmer heads are ground and with proper maintenance hold their edge. The combs are a little more cumbersome than I would have liked but since you will likely be using the "stubble combs" over the "long-hair combs" this will be less of an issue since those seem to be better made.

If you want to shave then I wouldn't recommend an electric shaver for your body. The skin is generally looser on your body and "rolls up" which prevents the same shave that you will get on your face. If you want to wet shave then I would suggest trimming the hairs to a shorter length before going over them with a DE shaver.

I've tried searching for answers on this sub but there are not really any tips about tools. The only feedback I could really find is trim, don't shave. My question to all of you is what do you use if you use something? I'm asking for a friend

EDIT: In case anyone ever comes across this thread here is what I'm going to try. I'm going to get a shower friendly trimmer, an anti-fog mirror to put in the shower, and veet hair remove (trying both strips and hair removal gel). Things I learned while doing this is having visibility instead of going blindly seems like it will help a lot with time and quality. If you do have long hair (more than a few centimeters) you should consider using a trimmer first then shave/use hair removal jell. Some hair removal jells and waxes should not be used multiple days in a row.

Cheers to a cleaner b-hole.

As someone who is/was very hairy, invest in a good electric body hair trimmer. This is the one I use.

I like it because I can reach my back, and the battery lasts 'forever' after a full charge. If I use a safety razor I get red bumps and ingrown hairs everywhere. I still use a blade and shaving cream to shave my legs though, mostly because I enjoy the routine.

After about 6 months of HRT my back hair is really thin, almost nonexistant. My arm hair has thinned a lot too. I'm still waiting for my chest hair to go away, but it has softened and shortened quite a bit. Same with pubic hair. Also, it all grows veeery slowly now.

Was able to shave my chest, arms, legs, and pubic region significantly faster than a razor. No nicks/bumps. It's waterproof so I used it in the shower.

Was surprised at how easy it was to use and how fast I was able to shave. If I absolutely wanted my "coin purse" to be just like a porn star, I'd have to use a razor, but for normal grooming, it does everything one would need without any issues.

I use an electric body shaver on my legs whenever they bother me. Sometimes it's after one day, sometimes it's after a week, just depends if I notice them and if they annoy me enough to do something about it. I hate using a normal razor on them because it takes way too long and I get ingrown hairs more easily. I guess my advice is do it as often as it bothers you if you have the time to do it and that a good bodyshaver definitely saves on time but you don't get as close of a shave.

The body groom is great, easy to use and makes everything uniform for your lady/gent with different size heads for different lengths. Forget all these people saying to avoid electric, don't waste your precious time shaving everything or (eek) cutting with scissors. It doesn't catch or pull on skin and I use it on all the areas including the sack. Of course use a razor for fine details but this bad boy always gets me back to a nice clean zen pube-garden.

Obviously this question only applies to those that choose to shave down there (nothing wrong with either decision!). I myself prefer to shave close but not completely. I feel like an electric razor would be a good way to accomplish this but after some Amazon research I'm completely torn over what the best option is.

So ladies, those of you who use an electric razor to tame the downstairs, which one do you use and would you recommend it?

I'm also open to other methods, I just know for sure that I don't want to go completely bare and trimming with scissors is just too tedious and annoying for me. Any and all advice welcome, please help me! I just want to keep things well groomed for both my SO and for myself but I'm sick of the completely bare look plus the never-ending maintenance that goes along with it.

the select-able size is great for where you don't want to go bare, and the "down to the skin" side is easy enough to use to get good lines and shapes with., plus the "teeth" are rounded so it doesn't feel like you're dragging needles all over.

Hi everyone,

I searched the sub but a bit more specific question and needed your help.

The hair above my penis has grown into a large bush and I am trying to shave/trim that area. However, when I use like a Mach 3 razor I get in-grown hair, that becomes so painful I cannot even sit and it get infected and pops (pretty gross). But how can I trim/shave this area without creating in-grown hairs?

Also any advice of shaving underneath your scrotum? Or should I just leave it?

Thanks!

Edit: Thanks guys! I now have enough information to become a master at pubic shaving!

Alright best thing to do is just get a trimmer and go real slow and steady, don't want to get the trimmer snagged in your hair or something fleshy (oh yea it hurts). Take your time and sculpt your penis beard until you are at a length you desire or short enough to easily glide a razor across.

A word to the wise, if you do shave maintain it or it will feel like a cactus orgy in your pants once your hair grows back. I personally just prefer a weekly manscape and I get a pretty close trim with this trimmer. Tame the bush with the bulky side then polish off the peasants with the light side. No complaints so far and it gets the hair down to near shaven levels.

Anyone here shave their body completely or specifically their armpits? My pits smell like death after each work out. I shower twice daily and use antipersperant deoderant but my shirts become a haven for death. Also do you feel physically look better? I see some fitness models with shaven pits and bodies, and they look great.

Everyone should be hairless from the neck down. That said, I only shave everything from the next down like twice a year. It definitely helps with the smell, though.

A regular beard clipper will work fine under your arms as long as the blades are sharp. After that, they'll cut the hell out of you.

I recommend a good manscaping tool like this instead.

TIFU by trimming my pubes [NSFW] [R]

3 years, 10 months agoAug. 24, 2015

I would use a throwaway for this, but I have no shame.

Recently my girlfriend and I have been talking about grooming. She said she wanted to try and shave herself bare 'down there' and I asked if she would like me to do something about my peen afro, dreading the response. She said I should probably trim to about half size for practicality's sake, and of course I agreed.

I should mention at this point that not once in my life thus far had I taken a blade to that most holy of places, and had allowed my fuzz to grow wild and free as Mother Nature intended. Clean as a whistle and soft as down, my carpet was my pride and joy.

So this morning (UK time) I sat buck naked over the toilet like Butters, a pair of "safety" scissors in front of me and Sherwood forest sprawling out over the bowl. My hand trembled as I reached for the scissors, my mind flashing back to every time the barber told me to stay still else he might accidentally cut my ear off. Ever so slowly, I opened the blades and snipped off the first chunk of long and curlies.

"There, that wasn't so bad now, was it?"

Confident now, I cut away more and more, hacking through my gentleman jungle with some pace. Admiring my handiwork, I started to get more ambitious, cutting closer and closer to my soft, pale skin. A glorious mound of hair grew in the toilet bowl. And then it happened. I saw it a moment too late. As the blades snapped shut, a tiny piece of nutsack flesh was sliced clean off with the pubes.

My eyes watered from the stinging wound and the shock, and blood welled to the quarter inch wound. I flung the scissors down and grabbed a handful of toilet paper as a rivulet of blood ran down my balls. Clutching the paper to my bleeding bollocks I slid on my dressing gown and half ran, half waddled downstairs, doing my best to look normal as I walked passed our security camera. Heading to the kitchen cupboard, I snatched out the First Aid box and rifled through it for a plaster. All we had remaining was a kiddy dinosaur plaster. Fuck it, it would have to do.

The damn thing wouldn't stick, the remaining hair and ball sack wrinkles wouldn't allow the plaster to maintain contact. Panicking, I threw the plaster away and went back upstairs to the shower. I needed to make sure the wound was clean so it wouldn't get infected. I showered quickly on a high heat, and it looked like the bleeding was stopping, but as soon as I came out and dried my balls with the towel the wound reopened and blood trickled from it once more.

Then, in a stroke of what I humbly describe as pure genius, a cunning plan came to me. I took a thick sheet of kitchen roll and hunted through the drawers for one of my sister's hair bobbles, proceeding to wrap my jewels up like a crispy wanton to soak any blood up till the bleeding stops, using the bobble to secure the kitchen roll in place. Thankfully I managed to find one tight enough to keep it together and yet loose enough that blood would still circulate.

I sit here now typing this, with my junk looking like knockoff Eastern cuisine, not daring to see if it's finally over. I'm never ever putting scissors anywhere near my plums again.

EDIT - TL;DR Tried to trim my pubes, cut a chunk of my balls off. OH GOD THE BLEEDING. Balls now look like a party snack.

EDIT2 - UPDATE I have spent most of the day with my girlfriend, being laughed at for cutting my bollocks like a moron. Unwrapped my testicle parcel and there was blood everywhere. All over my balls, and all over my underwear. Cleaned up and had to use a couple of her pantyliners (no I'm not joking) so the blood wouldn't reach my trousers. Have been out in town to buy steristrips and fabric plasters and had to go to public toilets to clean up twice, put them on and at long last the blood has stopped. Females of the world, never will I make fun of periods again. Putting up with the blood for a day has been miserable and embarrassing, and I didn't have any pain. I have no idea how you do it for a week every month.

Also, many thanks to /u/Arthane! I have never been gifted gold on here! This post is the most upvoted thing I've ever submitted to Reddit, and will be in my history at the top forever now. I'm not sure whether to laugh or cry.

So this is happening right now as I am typing this. I had been receiving a lot of flak lately for how hairy my legs are (I am an Indian) so I just went out and bought a body Razor.

Stupidly enough the first part I decide to shave is my thighs, fast forward half an hour and I am admiring my shiny thighs tbh honest they are looking quite lady like.

Now since I used a razor there were miniscule bits of hair still present on my thighs.

Now the trouble is every time any fabric touches my skin and moves in the opposite direction of those tiny hair..it hurts like hell!!. So any movement like walking or running 10x more painful.

Now coming to my present situation, I am sitting in a bus listening to magic sword for the first time and it is giving me goosebumps which in turn is aggravating my current situation.

Fuck you magic sword for making such great music...!!

The next targeted body part is my balls...feeling really terrified whether I should do it or not..!!

Do your research before you put a razor near your balls. I'm not a guy, but I know my SO uses an electric shaver, something like this on his nether region. I've seen a lot of horror stories lately here on TIFU about men removing hair from there, so be careful.

About a week ago, I shaved my body hair for the very first time. It was almost a complete success. My right thigh, however, was left with several razor bumps afterward.

I have absolutely no money to buy any products to treat these bumps. Ugh, should I just let the hair grow and wait for the bumps to fade away?

Anyway, I'm just wondering if any of you here had similar annoying experiences with shaving. How did you deal with the bumps and ingrown hairs? Does it get easier?

There are nicer models but this one works well. I use it to shave my legs, it's not quite as close a shave as a razor, but it's also quicker and rarely causes ingrowns since it's not a razor on your skin.

Also, 6 months on HRT and some laser on other body parts like my torso... the difference can't be overstated.

So I was doing some manscaping last week, and while I lifted my shaft to get to the coin purse with the razor, the rest of my dick slipped and I nicked it just under the head. Fast forward, it's begun to heal, but has some dry skin and just looks bad (probably would help if I didn't jerk off) that someone asked if I had herpes-.- Not fun.

Anyone else have any recent manscaping tragedies?

Edit: Cuts on the shaft, especially near the head may result in a UTI, as a user whom wishes to remain nameless has pointed out to me. Fortunately mine was a small cut and already healed up most of the way, it was mostly the dry skin surrounding it, and I take lots of care during washing. If I do get any of the warnings however (burning, pain, or especially back pain) I will see my Dr asap, as should anyone else who has recently nicked themselves.

Trimming with an electric trimmer does not completely remove your hair. Good trimmers can get the hair very short, though at that point it might be more comfortable to shave it. You'll figure your desired length out.

This is the body hair trimmer that I've been using for years. I'm very happy with it. It's completely water-proof, so you can take it into the shower with you if desired. I find it's easier to trim hair when it's dry though. I haven't nicked any of my skin, including my nether region. Still, be cautious when using it.

Alright... first of all, it's not that bad. It's not bad at all. What you'll use to shave depends on what results you want.

Personally, I never use a blade. A blade will never come near my balls. Some people are cool with it, but I am not.

I get rid of all the hairs in my balls, perineum and ass crack, as well as the little bit that grows on the base of the dick. I also remove some that grows in my thighs. The bush I keep very short, and I shape it up nice (straight lines) by removing the surrounding hairs.

I use this trimmer. I start out by setting the guard to 2 (you can certainly leave it longer or shorter as you wish) and trimming the bush. After that's done, I only use the other side. Make nice straight borders on the top and sides of the bush. Then onto the penis and balls. Be very careful with the balls, make sure your skin is stretched or you might cut yourself.

Since you've never done this before and your hair is so long, it might be a good idea to start by trimming everything down a bit before. Probably start with the guard on 5 or 4, and then do as I describe above.

Just be careful and you'll be fine. If you cut it too long, shorten it. If you cut it too short, it'll grow back.

As for what to do with the hair, I usually do this in the shower without the water running, and then once I'm done I run the water and catch all of it with the drain catcher and toss it in the trash can to prevent clogs.

This is just how I do it. Other advice might be helpful to you, just follow whichever sounds best. I hope that helps.

Use the trimmers next to the shaver, not the shaver itself. Use shaving cream for God's sake. Just give it a close trim every now and then. No itching, no razor burn, and single wipe pooping.

Looking to buy my first body hair trimmer pretty much just to tidy up the armpits and downstairs (no chest or back hair to speak of), any recommendations? I was considering a Phillips Bodygroom Plus or Pro, or a Mangroomer Professional. Looking for something that I can buy now and will last a while.

I use one of those bodygroomers, a Philips Norelco bodygroom shaver to be specific.

http://www.amazon.com/Philips-Norelco-BG2040-34-Bodygroom/dp/B0037HP9OA I believe it's this one, although mine might be a newer model. I'll check when I come home.

It works great both in shower and out of shower, although if you're using it for the first time I recommend using it out of shower and having your skin completely dry, especially if your ass hair is long like mine was.

If you have a bathtub, the easiest way to shave your ass is to prop your leg on the edge of the tub, get your hands between your legs and spread one of your cheeks with one hand and shave starting from near the anus (don't position the shaver directly on the hole, but a little bit to the side since there's no hair on the anus itself), be careful not to touch the anus and just shave toward the hand you're holding your cheek with. Do the same thing for the other cheek.

It took some time at first, but after a few shaving sessions it becomes really easy and takes less than 3 minutes.

It's almost impossible to cut yourself with this thing, at least from my experience. It also shaves really close, almost as close as a regular razor, but not close enough to nick yourself. I use it on my testicles and the area around them, as well, and I've never cut myself.

It also helps to not be overweight or obese, of course.

Also, if your pubic hair is long and thick, like 2-3 inches long, I recommend cutting it with scissors first before using a shaver, especially the pubes above your penis which tend to be longer than on the rest of your body. Just don't let them get that long again and you're good to go.

I did try using a regular razor once and while it worked, it also made my skin a little sensitive, especially around my genitals.

I use this. If you try using a normal blade instead, and shave too close, you will find about 1-3 days later that your shaved areas are covered in little red bumps (ingrown hairs). Electric body groomers offer a reasonably close shave with less risk of cuts and no risk of unsightly ingrown hairs. The only downside is that it won't be a perfectly smooth outcome, but like I say: Ingrown hairs are evil.

The Ultimate Guide to Shaving Your Pubes for Beginners (Men) [R]

4 years, 7 months agoMike_1970 posted submission on sex.
Nov. 29, 2014

If you have a bush like Brillo© , or just want to trim up the forrest so others can pass safely, you're in the right place.

I split groin hair into 5 different groups. Below I have listed the difficulty of each area as well as what kind of shave each area shall receive.

This is what we want the end product to look like. (His pubes look like the mustache of almighty Zeus himself!)

Pubic HairBall HairTaint/Gouche HairHigh Thigh HairShaft Hair
Easiest to shave. Needs to be trimmed down (No new-born baby penis look)Scariest/Most Difficult to shave. This will be a clean shave.Moderate difficulty. Up to shaver, but I prefer a clean shave.Easy to shave. This will be a clean shave.Nicks can happen here easily. This will be a clean shave.

Tools Needed: Shaving cream (MUST - Practice before which shaving cream works best! Sometimes Conditioner can work better),

electric razor (The side that pops out I will refer to as buzzer and the side with the guard I will refer to as electric razor from here on out)

A Women’s!shaving razor (women’s razors have a much higher guard and will protect better than one for men.

 

*PLEASE BE PREPARED!* I mean it’s your balls we’re talking about here…

 

Step 1: The first step will be to shave the pubic hair. Depending on how much hair is down there, you have the option to go at it with scissors like a harbor before throwing the buzzer down there. If you have an average amount (2”>x) then go at it with the buzzer. Hover your family jewels over the toilet, you may even choose to sit like a cool substitute teacher. Brush the square side of the buzzer backwards across your pubes vertically. It may seem as if it isn’t doing anything but trust me you’re losing hair faster than LeBraun James. Continue this until you deem it short enough, I like my pubes around 1/2”.

Note Make sure the pubes length is even throughout, focusing on areas that with longer hair to insure optimum symmetry, bitches love symmetry. Use a mirror!

 

Step 2: Now you’ll want to ‘square’ out your hair and completely shave off any outliers around your pubes. Perhaps you have a leaky happy trail? Or maybe your pubes are ‘fading’ in. Either way you’ll want this instead of this (not penis don’t fret) Use a mirror to make sure it’s not lopsided.

 

Step 3: Here we are going to tackle that upper thigh hair that encompasses the whole male crotch area. Now get all nakey if you aren’t already and hop in that shower. Make sure the water is warm because you’re going to be in there for a while. Whip out you’re shaving cream of choice, I use this because it makes the blade glide across my nuts (phrase of the day!). To be fair I am more metrosexual than most gay men. Anyway(!) lather that shaving cream on to you’re upper thigh, above the pubes and right around the taint (make sure the water isn’t washing it all away) and start shaving those areas. The shaving razor will insure that these areas are hair-free.

Note Make sure the blade follows the surface of the skin. You want max blade to skin contact.

 

Step 4: Here’s my favorite part. Shaving the shaft. Why is it my favorite? It adds an inch to your perceived dick length (now your dick will look like it’s an inch longrekt. Extend your dick by pulling out your head. It will give a similar surface on the base of the dick to an erect penis. Now with the shaving cream and razor, shave the front part of the base, while always making sure the base is flat. Then do each side, trying your best to make the area being shaved flat. A flat area not only allows the razor to get more hair, it also prevents little nicks that can occur. I’ll refer back to Davidfor how far down the base you should shave.

Note If you look at the pic of David, you’ll notice he shaved the area to the right and left of his penis. That is totally you’re call, I have no opinion I find both to by stylish in their own penis way.

 

Step 5: The balls. AKA Holyshitiamsoscarediamgoingtochopmynutsoff. You may be tempted to skip this part, but trust me, hairy balls do not look good when the rest has been shaved. If you start this, you must to finish it. You are the chosen one. You are supposed to bring balance to your pubes, not leave them in darkness! Do it for the (potential) children.

Back to the balls. We’re going to first start with the outside balls. To do this get in your best captain stance which creates a nice U shape between your thigh and outer left/right ball. This is the kind of U Brett Farve has been talking about. Now, using that handy shaving cream and razor, this should be quite easy. Gently go up that are and always going along the grain. Don’t switch up directions here, that’s too ballsy.

After that’s done we’re going to drift away from the pubes for just a bit. Throw some shaving cream on the taint (this is the area that prevents you from shitting on your balls) and you’ll want to shave from your asshole to the base of your balls. Always going in that direction. IMPORTANT If you touch your taint (ew you’re gross) you’ll notice there is a line. Kind of feels like hair running from your asshole to your balls. It’s actually a vein that controls your orgasms. DO NOT SHAVE ON THIS VEIN Shave to the left and right of it. Don’t go directly on it. I don’t think anything will happen if you do… but better safe than orgasmless.

 

Step 6: Back to the balls and the last part of the shaving in the shower. This part is difficult and to be honest I’m not sure of the best way to approach this. Balls are weird and that they have no fucking shape and 2 million wrinkles. I like to first take my electric razor and use the buzzer part of it. Then I just air swipe my balls getting all the hair about 1/4” short. Then I take the shaving cream and focus on specific parts squeezing my balls to get maximum surface area. This seems to work out for me, but keeping it 1/4 of an inch isn’t that big of a deal. Hair that short is difficult to notice and ladies/men will still suck your nuts.

Note Loosen up before shaving your balls. Take deep breaths and relax. Make sure your asshole isn’t clenched because that raises your balls. And if you’re down there shaving with a clenched asshole, and for any reason your asshole unclenches, you’re balls will drop (again) and hell will break loose. It is better to shave them while they are low and have them clench upwards.

 

Step 7: Clean up all the pubes off of your body. This is no simple task. Water is an adhesive so you’ll have to detach the shower head and put that all up in your business. I like to turn on the bath and use that heavy rush of water to cleanse my body of those clingy cutoff pubes. Hop out the shower, dry off and look at your masterpiece Michelangelo. But you are not done yet!

 

Step 8: Similar to barbers, you will have missed a few hair and you’ll probably have a few 2 inch hairs amongst you’re gently coiffed pubes. Grab a pair of nail scissors or whatever tool you prefer and chop those suckers off. The majority will be on your balls. A fun thing I like to do that is totally fucking weird, is pulling long pubes on my balls and plucking them off. It is surprisingly easy to do so because of the loose ball skin. Don’t yank it out like a band-aid though or you’ll need a band-aid (Ha Ha.. I’m not funny)

 

Voila, you’re done. Get some aftershave on those freshly shaven balls to disinfect your nicks and make those meaty knockers smell like a man. Congratulations and I hope I was of some help!

 

Edit 1: Let't talk about asshole hair, (what a great conversation startfuriouslyjotsdown) that area can be shaved and it can look/feel good! But personally, I like to keep my Brown Eye of Sauron to myself. No traveller has dared venture down so I feel no need to shave.

Edit 2: One of my ball shaving colleagues has alerted me that the 'taint vein' is actually, "[A] scar, from where the skin fuses before birth and is called the perineal raphe." (Google it for some nice visuals)

 

Thank you all for the great response! Being on the front page of sex is something all my future employers will be impressed by. I recently shaved and I seriously mistook my junk for King David's jewels (obviously he is miles bigger) and I thought I'd right down exactly what I did.

The people that are saying no and that are saying that it will hurt have most likely never tried it, or at least have never done so correctly. I've done it, and continue to do it, and it's fine. It should not hurt if used correctly. Use Nair for Men. Never leave it on for more than 15 minutes. Apply it, and set a timer right away. Once 15 minutes are up wipe it off with a warm damp washcloth in the shower and then wash away with soap and water.

I personally think that it's a lot easier to shave your balls then use Nair on them. It's really not that scary, and only takes a little bit of practice. I personally only use Nair around my ass hair, and shave my balls and shaft with a regular razor. If you want you can also keep the hair above your penis neat and trimmed short with an electric trimmer, such as the Phillips Bodygroom. This is the one I personally use, and it's worked well for me over the past few years.

So, you clicked the link-- now here's my dilemma:

Now, don't get me wrong, I would prefer to go about this important task in a prophetic way, but I am under the impression that painfully plucking away my offending hairs is a sure way to inflame some sensitive glands in this area. If you disagree, please enlighten this young padowan and tell me how it is properly done!

Definitely: this is the one: Philips Norelco BG2040/34 Bodygroom 7100

I was mistaken about the price, though. It's $70 not $50. Sorry :-/

The "top" head cuts super close; the bottom is more like a head hair trimmer. I use the bottom head to keep my pubic hair shorter but not "shaved". That also addresses the (legitimate) concern mentioned by /u/Eeeksters about stubble/friction, so you can go shorter without being "shaved".

I have no financial interested in the product; I just love it. :)

Almost 16 Year Old Male - Help with Basics! [R]

Oct. 4, 2014

Hi there,

I am a 15 year old guy. I turn 16 in February, and never have really been knowledgeable or caught on to the basics of grooming.

I have yet to grow a significant amount of facial hair besides my upper lip, which I have always simply washed my face with cold water, used my brothers or dad electric razer dry on my face (lightly dampened skin usually, not completely dry) and then washed with cold water again before drying with a towel.

I notice that I have to deal with acne above my upper lip when shaving lately, and I'm quite clueless as to shaving down there..

Can somebody please give me a basics tutorial on just the mere basics of what I need to clean up my facial hair (upper lip) and down in the groin area?

I would like to trim my groin area, and shave my scrotum. Is this the way to go? If so, I still have no clue what I'm doing and what products to use. I don't have money nor the guts to ask my mom to get me loads of fancy products & creams and what not, so again, the mere basics are best.

TL;DR: Reddit, please offer an uninformed adolescent male on the basics of what I need to make sure I am shaving my facial hair (upper lip mainly) and groin area effectively while looking clean and masculine. I would prefer to trim my groin area, but shave the scrotum area completely.

I use the Norelco Bodygroom PRO on the shortest setting. I lay on my back with a pillow under my upper back/neck and put my legs up in front of a mirror. This is the best way to have a steady view of that area that I've found so far. Then I pull a cheek to the side and make slow, careful swipes of the body groomer (getting more careful the closer I get to my hole). If you go slow and use the blade guard on the shortest setting, the blade shouldn't touch your skin. If you have a portable light/lamp, I suggest pointing it at your butt for extra light.

I use it for my junk and for my sideburns when I've gone a little long between cuts. It's waterproof and it has replaceable trimmer foils. It's also nice to have an "all in one" trimmer/shaver thing.

The only complaint I have about it is the charger. It feels flimsy, but it works well enough I suppose.

I use one of those and it has worked well for me in the past. The shaving head doesn't give nearly as close a shave as using a real razor but for me it's generally good enough. If you shave with it and then run your hand over the surface you can still sort of feel the stubble but it gets really close I don't know if you'll get closer to the skin without using a disposable razor. Also the shaving head is really good at not getting loose folds of skin caught in the shaving head, so very rarely do I get any cuts while shaving 'parts' and I'm pretty careless with it sometimes.

The clippers have 5 guard settings and I use the various settings to trim pretty much all my body hair since I'm naturally a pretty hairy guy. I think it's a pretty solid buy for the cost.

Norelco Body Groomer Best thing I have ever used. Highly recommended.

Edit: Before I got this, I was using a face razor with 5 blades, it was very smooth and not very itchy, but my old razor was shit and itched all the time, so use sharp blades. Ever since I got the Norelco, I don't get any itch at all. I usually trim once a week unless I have a date.

Shaving your crotch 101 [R]

HOLY GOD! FRONT PAGE? SWEET! NOW ALL THE PEOPLE CAN HAVE SMOOTH JUNK!

So I've been shaving my puss a little over five years straight. Among those years I've gathered a plethora of information on how I can shave the best. I was actually just in the shower and I realized that I've seen an astounding amount of posts in this subreddit on how to go about shaving "down there," so I figured I ought to make a guide. Keep in mind a few things as you go into my shaving recipe: this isn't going to be too ball friendly as I don't have any (tips I have should still apply, however), when I shave I shave EVERYTHING and no hair stays, and this is what works for me which may not work for you. Oooookay now lets get to the fun stuff.

(Edits at the bottom)

WHAT YER GONNA NEED:

  • Hair clippers meant for the crotch region. If you have a big bush or really anything that is longer than a grain of rice, you shouldn't shave it. You should get clippers and buzz it off before you shave.
  • A bar of soap with scrubby beads in it. Preferably unscented. Other options are getting an exfoliating glove, pad, or even a roughish wash cloth. Ladies, do not use a sugar scrub on your yes zone. Sugar and vaginas do not like each other.
  • A razor you know works with your skin. I personally use a razor by Schick for that area. dedicate this razor for the crotchal area only
  • Baby oil. Yup, baby oil. I Prefer to use Johnson's baby oil in the scent Shea butter so I don't smell like a baby. An alternative I just found out is a baby oil gel by the same brand. I think this actually works even better than the baby oil itself, but clogs the razor a little more. Either way, clean your razor very well after using.
  • Witch-hazel. Brand doesn't matter. You can get a bottle pretty much anywhere (Rite-Aid, Walmart, Walgreens etc.)
  • A light, unscented, designed for sensitive skin, moisturizer. I personally use a knock-off of Cerave's moisturizer.

OKIE DOKIE KITTENS, NOW YOU HAVE ALL YOUR STUFF WE CAN GET SHAVIN'

WHAT YER GONNA DO:

  • If, like I mentioned before, your hair is longer than a grain of rice, you'll need to give your crotch a buzz cut. I recommend doing this over a toilet. Men, I've heard that using those on your precious sack could end really badly so I'm not sure if this step is for the friends. Maybe just the top part? Anywho, for the ladies, you can use this all over. Be careful though, the angel can pinch the skin and feel ouchie. Shave up and down and side to side, you can shave down on the lips too but be very cautious. If you want your booty-hole smooth and happy, you can spread eagle in front of a mirror and go to town. Careful around there because the little wrinkles can get pinched easily.
  • So now that you're staring at the remnants of your old bushy friend, it's time to flush and step into the shower. Wash your body first. Let the steam relax all the lil hairs. After a couple minutes bust out your exfoliating device. I have a bar of soap with scrubbies. Use that in circular motions (not too hard) all around the mound/top part
  • Slather up with your oil of choice. I always start with the mound by working in strokes with the hair. Usually that means in downwards strokes. Shave everything that can be shaved with these strokes before getting fancy. Continue applying the oil as needed. Once all the hair has been removed by downwards strokes: oil up again, pull the skin taught and go against the grain of the hair. Usually this means upwards. Use a tad lighter pressure when doing this. It's okay if you bleed a little, but learn from your mistakes on how to be more gentle with yourself but still get the job done.
  • Once you're out of the shower, pat the area dry with a clean towel and apply your Witch-hazel. This will mostly likely sting a wee bit. IF YOU DON'T PUT THIS ON, YOU'LL BE AN ITCHY MOTHERFUCKER. THE TWO SECONDS OF STINGING IS AN OBVIOUS CHOICE TO A WEEK OF HELL-FIRE CROTCH
  • Apply your gentle moisturizer
  • If you can't go without wearing panties/undies, wear some that let your lovely junk get a breath of fresh air.

NOW YOU HAVE SOME NICE N' SOFT GENITALIA, GO PLAY.

EDIT 1: So... this blew up. I went to go and work on a final project and came back to lots of ball talk. Lovin' it! Anyway, lots of common questions I'm getting from the comments:

  • How often do I shave? - I don't have a set schedule. Commonly every other day, but some days I have to shave twice in a row.

  • What kind of hair do you have? - I have black, course hair. Dark as the night and grows like weeds.

  • Is this razor bump/ingrown free? - Yes, there's a reason you use baby-oil instead of the alternatives. It is very gentle on the skin and non irritating. There is also a reason you use Witch-hazel. This is a clarifying step and will help tighten your hair follicles so as there is much less of a chance for bumpy awfulness.

  • How do you shave the lips? - I shave by using the same way I described. I shave using downwards strokes followed by upwards strokes; leg up on the tub doing some hunchback of notradame shit so I can see kinda. The leg on the tub trick pulls the skin taught a bit, but I'd suggest to do that with your free hand, too (as others have commented also, thank you for the reminder. So silly I forgot about that part). I personally do not have labia that protrude, but for the ladies that do, I would imagine the other hand could cover them/pull the skin taught.

  • What kind of razor do you use?: I use this one.

EDIT 2:: So u/TheLittleGoodWolf commented on his male version of what I did so I thought I'd stick it in here for easy access.

"For guys: What you'll need: A razor, don't go cheap on this one and make sure it's sharp. I use a Gillette fusion and make sure to take good care of the blades. Again, a dull razor will increase the risk of ingrown hairs and irritated skin. Conditioner, from what I have noticed it helps the "glide" and also slightly softens the hairs. Coconut oil, for afterwards, trust me on this. a loofah, or a skin scrubbing thingy. a hot shower (duh) What you do: Get in the shower, wash yourself off, do what you normally do in the shower. When washing the groin area make sure you scrub carefully with the loofah thingy. Carefully does not mean hard, this is to make sure you have removed most dirt and stuff from the area. Turn up the heat of the water as much as you are comfortable with and spend some time rinsing of the area. Apply some conditioner to the area Shave as instructed in the OP. Some tips include shaving with the "grain" first and then shave in a 90° angle from that (this works for the face to btw), begin at the top and shave off as much as you wish, then move on to the shaft. While shaving the shaft (for those that have hair creeping up there, me included) I have noticed that it helps if you have an erection, sadly they don't work on command so do what you can. I make sure I stretch the skin so it's as straight as possible and then I shave in long, determined but not to hard strokes. The balls! This is a tricky area because that skin can stretch something fierce and the hairs are usually pretty sparse. I usually start on one side, stretch the skin so I can get a decently level surface and then I proceed as before. I start on one side and progressively move to the other side. You may want to check the area again when you are done. The "rest". You may proceed as far back as you feel comfortable (personally I don't like crack hair) but this is where you can't see anymore and have to rely on touch. Reach is also slightly to severely impaired and these together with razorblades in that area does pose some risk. Try to spread as much as you can and proceed with caution. Rinse off and step out of the shower. If you feel so inclined give the area a check to see if you are happy with the results before this. Aftercare: Dry yourself off, spend some extra time in the crotch area and make sure you are dry there. I have no idea of what Witch-hazel is but if you do, apparently it works great against itching so why not give it a go? Coconut oil! Now this is just a preference of mine so you can go ahead and use some other moisturizer (preferably mild and unscented) but I find the oil works best. As you might expect you simply apply desired amount of oil to the entire area and while you are at it apply it to other parts of your body as well. It's a great lotion and while some of you may laugh and find it unmanly it's all up to you but try it for a week if you dare. Done!"

EDIT 3: The scrubby soap I use is a soap that my mother makes herself. She has her own little soap business and it is made up of all natural ingredients (no dye, no scents, all natural due to her retarded amounts of allergies). The scrubbies in that are actually coffee grinds! If anyone is interested, I can ask my mother to see if she would be willing to send some out to those who request? Let me know if this is something that any of you are interested in

  • Also: This is Witch-hazel for those who are confused.

  • An alternative could be rose-water, diluted peppermint oil, VERY diluted alcohol, or maybe even grape-seed oil. I personally haven't tried any of these except the rose-water, which I think works pretty well. Isn't my favorite.

  • I change my razor head every two weeks or so

  • Didn't know that those scrubby beads are plastic! Since the soap I use is obviously not plastic, don't buy the kind with plastic beads. Look around for natural exfoliating soap (oatmeal or coffee)

EDIT 4: I moved all the EDITs in an order that makes sense. Also, I've been seeing a few people suggesting to use antiperspirant or deodorant after the Witch-hazel step. I've posted a comment on this in the past: don't apply either of those things if you're planning on having any kind of sex or sexual interaction within the day. The deodorant will slough off and make it look like your puss has a skin condition. Stick with lotion before sex. Other times? Go for it! I've been seeing people ask for this to be in the sidebar... I'm not sure how to go about that? Anybody know?

EDIT 5: My mother's website for her soap and things is here

Wash yourself first and go to town. I've been using mine for 2 years and it's amazing. The smoothest, softest balls/taint I've ever had and it's simple as fuck. Once I'm done I put a bit of shea butter on them and I'm all set.

My GF noticed how great it worked for me and she uses it on herself and loves it too. Never take a razor to your balls again.

Excellent - it would be just like my sons to use my clippers for something and then snicker afterwards. ;) My husband personally has these: http://www.amazon.com/Philips-Norelco-BG2040-BodyGroom-Pro/dp/B0037HP9OA/ but it was a deal at Christmas so they were cheaper. There are definitely cheaper ones, but honestly a body groomer or body trimmer is going to be much easier to use in areas where you can't see well, and can give you a much closer shave if you want.

You can only get ingrown hairs if the hair is shaved under the skin allowing the hair follicle to get clogged. IF you get them every time, consider using an electric razor instead of a real one. I have a Norelco BodyGroom that is pretty decent. If isn't a smooth as a real shave but you are much less likely to get ingrown hairs.

I've noticed a whole lot of the pros and a lot of elite college runners do it. On my team, 4 guys do it including me and my coach. I do it just every 3 weeks so that when I get massaged, it doesn't hurt as much. I'm an extremely hairy guy and was wondering if there is any way to not feel like a plucked chicken afterwards.

So who shaves their legs and what is your reason for doing or not doing it?

The Norelco Bodygroom Pro makes it much easier/faster without dealing with lathering up and all. Other than that, it's a personal choice. I will do it occasionally just because it feels better. Others claim it helps keep you cooler, which I don't believe but alas to each his own.

There is no shyness in asking questions in regards to Islam.

Shaving your pubic hair is an obligation. As far as hair elsewhere on your body, there's no obligation nor prohibition in shaving it. If you feel its more hygienic to remove hair in the perianal region, that's perfectly fine. I would suggest using this. It's a bit on the expensive side but I've had mine for 5 years and it's going strong (although it no longer holds a charge).

I'm surprised when I see oh many people think that cuting your own hair means having the same-length hair or having the 'bowl-cut' haircut. What is your opinion on this? Do you cut your own hair and how much do you save? What kind of haircut do you wear?

edit: if you're interested in some tips, this post seem to cover it well

I've got what most people tell me is an undercut (guy with medium length hair on top, sides and back are shaved).

I got to a barber once every 2-3 months to get a proper haircut to keep it looking good. Otherwise, I shave the sides every 2 weeks using a Philips Norelco razor I bought at the recommendation of a redditor.

Shaving the back yourself can be a little tricky, but after doing it a few times, it's not so hard.

For those who decide to go for it, here's some advice from /u/LieutenantJesus that was thrice gilded and bestof'ed a few months back:

"I've shaved my mashers and bang/taint/funhole for years and years, so let me contribute.

So let's assume you've never blessed yourself with a shorn scrotum: There are two methods you can use to rid yourself of hair. I'll go over both, since I've done both extensively.

<hr />

>Shaving:

USE A NEW RAZOR FOR THIS. Old razors deteriorate and the blades get bent/dulled. You don't want dull blades tugging at hairs and nicking you up down there.

  1. Trim up. Get a body-hair trimmer like a Norelco Bodygroom or just a regular hair-trimmer and take care most of the bush. Go with the shortest guard it'll allow-- Not using a guard is a good way to get a few nicks, not something you want down in your dangly bits. You want to get yourself short enough where a razor won't get caught and cut you up in masses of hair.

  2. Get in the shower, and get that bitch nice and hot. You don't want to try shaving dry, hell no. Wash your hair, brush your teeth, do all of your regular shower things to give your pubes a bit to get wet and soften up. This'll make it so much easier, trust me.

  3. Start shaving WITH the grain. Make a few passes. Don't press down on the razor, just let it do its job. You won't get it all in one go, and that's fine.

  4. Go across the grain. If your hair looks like this: |||||, shave in this ---> direction, or this <--- direction. The best would be doing a pass of each.

  5. Go against the grain. Now, at this point, if you feel smooth enough, feel free to stop. Going against the grain may cause irritation and ingrown hairs, so know your body and know how your hair responds. The biggest lesson is DO NOT PRESS DOWN ON THE RAZOR. You will only irritate your skin and nick yourself. Be patient and take your damn time.

  6. Finish the job. If you shave your dick, you must also shave your balls, otherwise you might as well just not even do it. It may be scary the first time taking a razor to your jumblies, but it's simple and quite safe, if you're careful (For the record, I've never nicked myself shaving down below, yet I can butcher my face when I'm not careful). Just take the sack in one hand and GENTLY pull it to stretch the skin, and run the razor lightly over it, front and back, starting the stroke from the underside of your dick and dragging down towards your feet. Don't bother too much with grain direction here, it won't matter that much.

  7. The Gooch/Ass/Asshole: You should also run over these areas with a hair trimmer/bodygroom before you go at it with a razor. The secret here is the same as the rest of your sensitive bits: Go slow, don't press down with the razor, and relax. The taint is tricky, but you can navigate it by feel pretty well. The ass/asshole is simple, except for the hole. If you're shaving your ass, you aren't gonna leave the hole hairy, so when you shave it, shave starting from the pucker and stroke AWAY. Do not shave ACROSS the sphincter, else you're just asking for a rough ride. Remember: DO NOT PUSH DOWN ON THE RAZOR.

For your balls, you might want to make a run over them later when you're dry. Helps get those stray hairs.

>Post-Shave Care:

Once you get out, pat-dry the areas you've shaved. If you get razor burn, get some Vitamin E cream or moisturizer and spread a little down there. This will help the skin heal, and probably cool things off. I like to pat a little Gold Bond down there, because if I'm going to be fancy enough to shave my balls, I'm going to powder them like an English Nobleman.

Itching: This is normal if this is your first time shaving/it's been a while since you've shaved. You shouldn't itch as bad or even at all the second time around, so just tough it out.

Farts: You'd better be ready, because you can no longer sneak these fuckers. The bare skin will amplify your ass air to trumpet-like levels. Be prepared to use your flesh-valve a lot more efficiently after this.

Sweat: You might feel like your ass/gooch is a lot sweatier than usual. It's not, you just lack friction from your now-missing hair down there. Invest in some boxer-briefs if it bothers you. You get used to this as well.

<hr />

>Depilatory Creams

Alright, so now that we've covered shaving, let's discuss using chemical hair removers. I wouldn't use Nair on your private parts, you will burn yourself. You have to find something for sensitive skin (Which I'm sure Nair has now). I am a fan of Magic Shave. It's a powder you mix with water, then slather all over your crotch, wait a while, then rub off gently with a washcloth. You can get if off Amazon, or find it at most any drugstore in the shaving/hair removal aisle. Takes the hair right off and leaves you SMOOTH AS FUCK. It's messier and takes a little more time, but it's worth it in the end.

They do sell it as a pre-mixed cream, but ever time I've used it it's been very lackluster, even after leaving it on for several minutes past the recommended time.

  1. Test it somewhere like your inner thigh. Mix a small bit, put it on for the prescribed amount of time (7 or so minutes, in my case), and wash it off. Wait a day to see if there are any adverse effects. Skipping this step is not recommended, seeing as a small allergic reaction on your thigh is a lot easier to handle than one all over your fucking dick.

  2. Mix. I use a mason jar, put in equal parts of the power and water, and shake it up. The I use something like a rubber spatula to scoop it out and slather it from dick (Try to limit getting any on the glans. It won't kill you, but you don't generally want depilatory cream on sensitive membranes like that) to asshole. The more you use, the better. Be sure to place a towel under you/do this in the tub to catch any that might drip.

  3. Wait. Set a timer and just stand around a bit. Brush your teeth. Floss. I don't care, just wait out the 5-7 minutes.

  4. Hop in the shower. Lukewarm water is the best for this stuff, I'd avoid going really hot though. Grab a washcloth and slowly rub the stuff off in a circular motion while under the stream. You might have to give some hairs a gentle tug to get them out, but it shouldn't take you any real effort. You may miss spots, and that's okay, you can get them next time. You should probably have a set washcloth just for this, because Magic Shave does have a tendency to stain.

  5. Pat dry. If you left it on a little too long, it might feel somewhat like razor burn. Use some Vitamin E/Moisturizing cream on it and dial the time back a little next time.

All in all, I much prefer using Magic Shave to rid myself of hair, because it leaves me MUCH smoother and isn't as expensive as wearing razor cartridges out. Enjoy shaving, and know that your girlfriend/boyfriend will REALLY appreciate it."

Best body groomer under $50? [R]

5 years, 7 months agonactownplaya posted submission on malegrooming.
Dec. 3, 2013

I'm a medium-hairy dude, and from time to time I like to trim the chest and stomach hair that I get. I'm tired of getting really inconsistent lengths with my electric face-trimmer though, and want to find sort of an all-in-1 groomer to keep body hair in check.

I've seen a few with comb systems, offering several different lengths, which I see as a good thing. Intended use would be chest and stomach hair trimming, light upper back hair removal, keeping my sideburns from getting too furry between haircuts (length control), and potentially facial hair length control.

I've found a few potential options that look good, including the Philips Norelco BG2028, PhilNor BG2038, and Philips QG3330, but I would prefer to get further info from this community if possible.

What would you gentlemen recommend? Under $50 would be nice. Any advice and trimmer recommendations are appreciated!

This is the one you want if you're looking for an all-in-one: Philips Norelco BodyGroom Pro. It's a little over your preferred price point at $59.95, but it's well worth the price IMO. Read through the reviews on Amazon and you'll likely be convinced.

While it's a good face trimmer, it's fantastic for everything else. The pivoting head on this trimmer is the only thing that I will let even get close to my ballsack.

FWB suggested it might be about time to drop the "full bush" look. She said neatly trimmed would be ideal for her, and this is backed up by most similar posts I've read around here. Does anyone have suggestions for the best electric trimmers for the job? I imagine I want something more akin to Wahl hair clippers than a face razor. Amazon reviews occasionally mention the pube question euphemistically, but it's rarely the focus. Looking for wisdom.

My boyfriend of 2 years' birthday is coming up, and he hates his beard trimmer! So I was thinking about buying him a fancy pants new one (no real budget if it blows all the other out of the water). So any suggestions? He said he hates his because the comb attachment thing is difficult and not really trust-worthy (sometimes it'll randomly cut patches too short). I'm not sure if that was an important thing to add but I figured anything helps, right?

Any specific brands? Any specific details I should be looking for? What do you like about yours?

Oct. 14, 2013

Hi guys, lady here. My bf is a hairy guy, I'm cool with that. He does like to shave his the back of his neck, his back, and his entire chest/abdomen. I almost always help with this, no complaints.

I can understand the neck/back shaving, its the chest shaving that bothers me. For one, I like his chest hair, BUT it can grow a little too long, like it needs a trim. I don't like when he shaves it because the new growth is scratchy and uncomfy and I can think of many more comfortable way to exfoliate my body.

So i really want to know, is there a way to trim body hair?

I can shave my chest, legs, thighs, pubic area, and I have someone do my butt cheeks (Thanks bro). The problem is, how do I get between the cheeks? I would love to have it gone, but can't reach back there a forbid I slip and slice me a new one. and I know I can't ask my brother (he already has a hard enough time shaving my cheeks). I want it gone! Also any tips to staying hairless once it's all gone? I hate shaving so often.

I'm not in a position of affording laser or electro yet, so what has worked for you asktrans? I've tried shaving in a few different ways but always end up miserable with razor burn, I did a little test patch of Nair this morning and it went... okay, but I still had to shave afterward, to be fair I left it on for only the minimum amount of time.

I know HRT may make it easier, but that's still a little ways off and I'd kinda like to mess around with some clothes, but all this damned hair just makes me feel like shit.

I've owned four trimmers, three of which have been pretty nice. But I've never seen one that leaves you with actual stubble. I currently have the Norelco Bodygroom Pro, and the shortest setting leaves me with a "week-long", ~5mm beard.

My point: just be sure to read all of the specs before you make a purchase. 5mm is longer than it sounds for a beard.

Mmm...I'd say 3 times a month or if there's a special occasion coming up.

I use this as my primary tool. The dual ends are pretty useful. I use the trimming edge on my chest hair, and use the shaving end to hut my tummy and pubes (I leave a train to the belly button though, and I trim that with the trimming edge).

I go over my pubic area with a razor after using the bodygroom though. It gets pretty close but not close enough, and the trimming edge will nick your perineal raphe,so I am gentle on the ball sack with the bodygroom.

For the most part my grooming is strictly personal preference. I'm not all overly sexually active but just feel like less hair appears and feel more clean.

Get one of these -the Norelco BodyGroomer is awesome. I used to use a cheap trimmer like you then shave with a standard face razor. I would get knicks and cuts and the hair always grew back itchy. Not with the Norelco. I have also switched razors to the gillette 5 blade and it does a much better job on the twig and berries, but the Body Groomer is the way to go.

Please try to include the following in your response:

  • How often do you engage in manscaping?

  • What do you use to handle your pubic hair? (shaving, waxing, Nair, etc)

  • Do you have any specific tools you would recommend?

  • How long do you keep your hair down there? Trimmed? Hairless? In the shape of a top hat?

  • Any tips and tricks in general regarding maintaing pubic hair?

Since I have a girlfriend, major manscaping every 2 weeks, light trimming before I expect sexy times

Shaving/Trimming

TOOLS-GET ONE OF THESE Norelco BodyGroom pro. Its works great on all below the neck hair.

Trimmed short around the base. Sack is trimmed short, not bald for sweat control reasons. Shaft is shaved.

Hey guys sorry if the post is a very awkward post but I have no male father figure in my life to ask this to. How am I supposed to shave the shaft and balls safely? Is it even worth it? Thanks for any responses

Get one of these
I have tried shaving with different face razors and I always get the itchy five o'clock shadow. I did have better luck with the newest gilette 5 blade razor, but the Norelco Body groomer is magic. No itch when it grows back and you can trim or shave. It also works on chest and back hair.

Whether you need to shave or not is personal preference. I am 44 and when I was 20, nobody did it. However it seems like for kids today it is a requirement to be at least neatly manicured. Since my recent divorce I have been manscaping because the ladies do seem to appreciate it. I find a nice trim on the bushes is good. The shaft I keep bare, and while I have completely shaved the balls as well I find that keeping the hair short is better for sweat management. I do it in the shower and use liberal amounts of soap. The Norelco Groomer is waterproof.

Thanks for nothing puberty. [R]

The Norelco Body Groom

I usually go clean shaven leaving the treasure trail from my belly button to the figurative pot of gold (please excuse my overly douchey metaphors).

After I use that bad boy to trim I hit with a razor; going from pubes, to shaft, and then into the taint region.

This is a tough one, because I think the real "buy it for life" answer is a high quality pair of scissors. However, I don't think this is exactly what you're asking, especially re: sharp things near sensitive areas.

Depending on where you're traveling, I think any of the high quality Wahls would work, as others have suggested (don't be fooled--they make cheap models, too. These'll work much better than pretty much any off brand clippers you pick up, but are pathetic compared to the high quality versions.) Really, go to your favorite local barber (preferably someone who has been there forever, not some place at the mall that isn't buying for life themselves) and check out what they use, you can most likely get your own. The problem with plug-in trimmers is that A) they tend to be big and heavy, which isn't very fun if you're traveling light, B) you can't use them in the shower without electrocuting yourself (which comes in handy with body shaving) and C) they aren't going to help you during that week overseas without a converter.

I know no battery powered anything will ever be for life, but I think it can last much longer than many BIFLers are willing to admit, especially if you're willing to take it apart on your own. See, the thing that will most likely give out first is the rechargeable batteries. What most people don't realize is that these tend to just be standard AAA or AA rechargeables that have been soldered/taped/glued in. As long as you're willing to unleash your inner MacGyver, you can extend the life of your gadgets immensely.

So, with the disclaimer that I know it isn't truly for life, I humbly suggest the Philips Norelco BG2040 BodyGroom Pro. I've had this for ~5 years, and it does a top rate job on any hair from head to toe, at any length you choose (as long as those lengths are all less than about an inch). It's battery powered, but holds a charge a LONG time (I usually leave it sitting in the shower a month or so without charging, it's not daily use but I usually get at least a dozen or so uses before wanting to recharge). As long as you're just traveling for a week or two, I think you'd be fine without even packing the charger. It works for both wet and dry use, is about the size of a universal remote control, and only slightly heavier. Plus the lack of a cord can be really handy when you're doing that shaving yoga to get to the awkward spots of your body.

I have only my limited sample, but I can say it hasn't needed any repairs in the half decade I've been using it. Simply knowing battery powered electronics, I doubt it's really a 'for life' product. But what, exactly, is "life" for body trimmers, anyways? Do you really want to be 70 and shaving your pubes? (Apologies if you're already 70 and shaving your pubes.) I think you can buy something else that will actually last you your whole life, but it won't quite be perfect for what you want. It'll work well (Wahl has treated me well when I'm giving myself a haircut and want to kill two birds with one stone, though be careful around your wrinkly bits, those things are almost designed to make sure your beanbag bleeds like a stuck pig if you get careless), but it won't be the perfect body trimming machine that is the Philips Norelco BG2040 BodyGroom Pro. You're the one who will have to decide if they want truly for life longevity or a specialized tool that'll perform better, but only for a small chunk of your life.

I had my boyfriend shave my ass before anal (i'm a bottom) and this thing made it easy. Be careful not go to short on your lags and such, it tends to look odd.

But yes, doing it on your own is hard but i've done it before so not impossible. Be warned, if you shave it will grow back prickly.

Which Body Groomer should I Buy? [R]

I've only trimmed down south with scissors before, but this takes a while and it's hard to get all the hairs and keep things uniform. I want a trimmer that will help out with the pubic region, including balls and thighs and whatever else is down there.

Now, I've heard horror about shaving, so I just want to trim enough to be maintained and bedroom-appropriate, but I want comfort. I'm open to suggestions on length (half an inch?).

Anyhoo, I'm looking at these 2 products on Amazon. Both look decent. Any feedback? Things I should consider?

>Note: I did not write this:

I've shaved my mashers and bang/taint/funhole for years and years, so let me contribute.

So let's assume you've never blessed yourself with a shorn scrotum: There are two methods you can use to rid yourself of hair. I'll go over both, since I've done both extensively.

<hr />

&amp;gt;Shaving:

USE A NEW RAZOR FOR THIS. Old razors deteriorate and the blades get bent/dulled. You don't want dull blades tugging at hairs and nicking you up down there.

  1. Trim up. Get a body-hair trimmer like a Norelco Bodygroom or just a regular hair-trimmer and take care most of the bush. Go with the shortest guard it'll allow-- Not using a guard is a good way to get a few nicks, not something you want down in your dangly bits. You want to get yourself short enough where a razor won't get caught and cut you up in masses of hair.

  2. Get in the shower, and get that bitch nice and hot. You don't want to try shaving dry, hell no. Wash your hair, brush your teeth, do all of your regular shower things to give your pubes a bit to get wet and soften up. This'll make it so much easier, trust me.

  3. Start shaving WITH the grain. Make a few passes. Don't press down on the razor, just let it do its job. You won't get it all in one go, and that's fine.

  4. Go across the grain. If your hair looks like this: |||||, shave in this ---&amp;gt; direction, or this &amp;lt;--- direction. The best would be doing a pass of each.

  5. Go against the grain. Now, at this point, if you feel smooth enough, feel free to stop. Going against the grain may cause irritation and ingrown hairs, so know your body and know how your hair responds. The biggest lesson is DO NOT PRESS DOWN ON THE RAZOR. You will only irritate your skin and nick yourself. Be patient and take your damn time.

  6. Finish the job. If you shave your dick, you must also shave your balls, otherwise you might as well just not even do it. It may be scary the first time taking a razor to your jumblies, but it's simple and quite safe, if you're careful (For the record, I've never nicked myself shaving down below, yet I can butcher my face when I'm not careful). Just take the sack in one hand and GENTLY pull it to stretch the skin, and run the razor lightly over it, front and back, starting the stroke from the underside of your dick and dragging down towards your feet. Don't bother too much with grain direction here, it won't matter that much.

  7. The Gooch/Ass/Asshole: You should also run over these areas with a hair trimmer/bodygroom before you go at it with a razor. The secret here is the same as the rest of your sensitive bits: Go slow, don't press down with the razor, and relax. The taint is tricky, but you can navigate it by feel pretty well. The ass/asshole is simple, except for the hole. If you're shaving your ass, you aren't gonna leave the hole hairy, so when you shave it, shave starting from the pucker and stroke AWAY. Do not shave ACROSS the sphincter, else you're just asking for a rough ride. Remember: DO NOT PUSH DOWN ON THE RAZOR.

For your balls, you might want to make a run over them later when you're dry. Helps get those stray hairs.

&amp;gt;Post-Shave Care:

Once you get out, pat-dry the areas you've shaved. If you get razor burn, get some Vitamin E cream or moisturizer and spread a little down there. This will help the skin heal, and probably cool things off. I like to pat a little Gold Bond down there, because if I'm going to be fancy enough to shave my balls, I'm going to powder them like an English Nobleman.

Itching: This is normal if this is your first time shaving/it's been a while since you've shaved. You shouldn't itch as bad or even at all the second time around, so just tough it out.

Farts: You'd better be ready, because you can no longer sneak these fuckers. The bare skin will amplify your ass air to trumpet-like levels. Be prepared to use your flesh-valve a lot more efficiently after this.

Sweat: You might feel like your ass/gooch is a lot sweatier than usual. It's not, you just lack friction from your now-missing hair down there. Invest in some boxer-briefs if it bothers you. You get used to this as well.

<hr />

&amp;gt;Depilatory Creams

Alright, so now that we've covered shaving, let's discuss using chemical hair removers. I wouldn't use Nair on your private parts, you will burn yourself. You have to find something for sensitive skin (Which I'm sure Nair has now). I am a fan of Magic Shave. It's a powder you mix with water, then slather all over your crotch, wait a while, then rub off gently with a washcloth. You can get if off Amazon, or find it at most any drugstore in the shaving/hair removal aisle. Takes the hair right off and leaves you SMOOTH AS FUCK. It's messier and takes a little more time, but it's worth it in the end.

They do sell it as a pre-mixed cream, but ever time I've used it it's been very lackluster, even after leaving it on for several minutes past the recommended time.

  1. Test it somewhere like your inner thigh. Mix a small bit, put it on for the prescribed amount of time (7 or so minutes, in my case), and wash it off. Wait a day to see if there are any adverse effects. Skipping this step is not recommended, seeing as a small allergic reaction on your thigh is a lot easier to handle than one all over your fucking dick.

  2. Mix. I use a mason jar, put in equal parts of the power and water, and shake it up. The I use something like a rubber spatula to scoop it out and slather it from dick (Try to limit getting any on the glans. It won't kill you, but you don't generally want depilatory cream on sensitive membranes like that) to asshole. The more you use, the better. Be sure to place a towel under you/do this in the tub to catch any that might drip.

  3. Wait. Set a timer and just stand around a bit. Brush your teeth. Floss. I don't care, just wait out the 5-7 minutes.

  4. Hop in the shower. Lukewarm water is the best for this stuff, I'd avoid going really hot though. Grab a washcloth and slowly rub the stuff off in a circular motion while under the stream. You might have to give some hairs a gentle tug to get them out, but it shouldn't take you any real effort. You may miss spots, and that's okay, you can get them next time. You should probably have a set washcloth just for this, because Magic Shave does have a tendency to stain.

  5. Pat dry. If you left it on a little too long, it might feel somewhat like razor burn. Use some Vitamin E/Moisturizing cream on it and dial the time back a little next time.

All in all, I much prefer using Magic Shave to rid myself of hair, because it leaves me MUCH smoother and isn't as expensive as wearing razor cartridges out. Enjoy shaving, and know that your girlfriend/boyfriend will REALLY appreciate it.

If you're interested in shaving look no further: http://www.amazon.com/Philips-Norelco-BG2040-BodyGroom-Pro/dp/B0037HP9OA/ref=sr11?ie=UTF8&qid=1368548581&sr=8-1&keywords=norelco+body

Easily one of the best purchase I made toward personal grooming. Its designed to be used on your man parts and let me tell you, it does an amazing job. Closest and softest shave I've ever had, and it cuts the hair in such a way that grows back without being prickly (no idea how it does this but it works)

It also has a trimmer end which I would use first if you're particularly gnarly down there.

I currently use manual blade razors, but I actually like having a little bit of stubble. I've read that electric razors give a less close shave than blade razors, which would be a huge plus for me. Do men who have used both find this to be the case? Which one do you guys recommend?

My only requirements are that I can use it in the shower, it be rechargable (eg not connected to the wall outlet since I'm in the shower). Also, I prefer the foil type over the 3 head rotary type

I have a Norelco Body Groom Pro

It seems to fit your criteria almost exactly. I too like a bit of stubble left after shaving and this does it perfectly. I've had this for a little over six months now and works just as well as when I got it. It is waterproof and it can do a close, smooth shave if want it.

It's not as expensive as some high end Braun, but I'd argue that it does just as well, especially for your purposes.

Have you had any experience with electric razors for this? I've heard good things about this Philips groomer but wouldn't want to pay $70 for it if it's not gonna work that well. My SO doesn't really care if I'm shaved down there, as long as it's trimmed often enough to not get out of control, but I'd be interested in seeing how both of us like it fully shaved. I'd rather go the convenient route with an electric shaver like that one, but if that's generally a bad idea then I'd reconsider.
