Guys who shave... down there

I've trimmed for years then went to shaving. Shaving is not as bad as some think. It seems like a blade might shread your b***s, but it actually flys right over them believe it or not. Its best to let the shower running hot or warm water on the area to make is easier to shave. It was a pain in the ass though having to wait a couple days before you could shave next, at least I do cuz I have sensitive skin. Then I decided I wanted permanent so I tried Electrolysis. DONT DO IT! It hurts like a MOFO!!! Then 90 percent of it grew back. They say permanent! She said I needed about six or seven more treatments! Yeah right!!! This girl didn't know what she was doing except killing me and my wallet ($700.00) before I stopped. I think maybe she was a man hater. I love how I look shaved and I can't help not to look at myself and actually being turned on by it. It feels so much better and is so much cleaner.
Still being bent over being hairless I went for laser. Did my first one today! Cheaper, faster and a lot less painful. I don't even want to call it painful. Did my homework I read that it will take about six to eight treatments and maybe a touch up about once a year at about Seventy dollars per treatment. Other people I know that have done laser told me the same. I'll keep you all posted on my results! Oh yeah, I was pretty intimidated being worked on by someone but after the second treatment it was a cake walk because I wanted this for a long time. Since shaving I am a bit of an exhibitionist. Like I said girls who say they are not turned on by men shaving seem to change their minds if you are passionate about how you treat them during sex, and not being selfish is a major turn on no matter what.
My laser tech told me she does at least three men a day. Treatment is called Full Bikini or Brazillian (sounds a little queer huh?) They had to call it something. Not every place do men but several do. Just call around. Read ratings on YELP to help decide on where to go.
I live in the LA area
I"LL BE BACK......

Laser has been good for me so far. Got couple of session more to go.
 
I started trimming in college, about 8~9 years ago. I have a lot of body hair in general, and it just got way too sweaty & pungent as the pubic hair grew. I decided to start trimming & tried shaving; I didn't see much benefit beyond just trimming, so I gave up shaving.
I've been trimming pretty consistently ever since, although I find the time in between trimmings increases if I'm not actively dating (interestingly enough...lol). Never really thought about doing the same with my other body hair, although I might take measures if I continue to get more & more back hair.

My husband started waxing when he was working on cruise ships, removing every hair below the neck. It was something most guys did on the cruise ships, and he liked it.

Now he does it in the summer, when it gets hot. He's switched to sugaring because it's gentler. Sometimes he shaves, in which case he does it himself, but usually he prefers sugaring because the effects last longer and the hairs grow back thinner. He also likes feeling pampered by having someone work on him.

The reason? In general, he's a person who just really likes smooth skin. He's always been turned off by body hair. Also, he finds that having no hair is good for cooling. The only reason he stops in the winter is the loss of insulation.

He's got a good practitioner now, but he's definitely had trouble getting people to do it in the past. A lot of practitioners get really squeamish about handling man parts.

I clear-cut the forest below the belt.

Its more a hygiene thing than anything else. Its much easier to keep yourself clean for longer (especially after messing around), its more comfortable in hot weather, and gets in the way less during oral (speaking from experience, getting something stuck in your teeth KILLS the mood). Its not the easiest thing in the world to do on a regular basis but the benefits outweigh the challenge.

I think more men do it than are willing to admit because it seems "un-manly" for some reason.

I recently had to shave my chest for a tattoo and I have to say its odd, I dont usually do it.

Well, duh. Doesn't matter if a guy is hairy or hairless if he's a selfish ass.

But you don't understand. Assuming a guy is clean and bathes regularly, of course, those of us who like men to be natural LOVE the smell that pubic hair holds. Sure, smoothness down there is nice, but weird. When my lover lets his grow in a little, I just bury my face in his bush and inhale deeply. I tell him all the time how good his crotch smells when he isn't clean-shaven. Maybe it's just that I am older -- most of my adult life, it was a given that naked people have bushes and that fragrance is part of the experience. I blame internet porn for the lack of appreciation for pubic hair. Supposedly mothers are having their young daughters shave or wax as soon as it starts to grow. This is insanity - if people were meant to be hairless, we wouldn't have hair to begin with.

My hubby has shaved before, and I don't care about the look either way, but it does seem to be more pokey as it grows back. Sometimes he chooses to give his penis a mustache, which sounds really weird, but it's actually really good looking. In general he just tries to keep the underside and main bush part trimmed down.

As for me, I've been through all sorts of phases! I am surprised however with how long this thread is, that no one has mentioned coochy after shave protection mist. It's exactly what it sounds like. Since finding that, I don't get razor burn, but it doesn't stop the itch as it grows back, and no matter how much willpower I have, I always end up scratching in my sleep and wake up to painful bumps. So I try to keep everything trimmed into a nice little triangle so there's less discomfort. I've been toying with the idea of saving up for the laser hair removal though. Does anyone know what sort of cost is involved with that?
Hi!
About the cost of laser, you should call around. Some go as high as $200.00 and as little as what I pay, $69.00 per session. They recommend at least 6 sessions, 5 to 6 weeks apart. I was a little leary of the $69.00 one because it was so cheap. I am totally happy with their work. If you live in the LA area its right next door. The name of the place is Prolase, in Glendale. The whole procedure takes about 10 minutes. I did my second session today (Saturday the 17th, 2012). In the 5 - 6 weeks some hair grows in. Its just new follicles that grow out and when you go back they kill the new ones. O yeah! Look at the Groupon deals. For example, theres 2 in there that are offering 6 sessions for $99.00 for a small area and medium area $139.00. Brazillians are considered medium areas. Do it!

What if your daughter had a beard? LOL!!!

Huh? Well, that's just dumb. Females don't naturally grow beards on their faces. But pubic hair is natural, and young men and women should be taught to appreciate their bodies, not strip themselves bare of all evidence of their humanity at any cost. Fine if it's a choice they make as adults later down the road, but mothers making their daughters wax their pubes is surely teaching the wrong thing. And just plain gross.

I agree that mothers having their pubescent daughters waxed is madness. But I generally dislike the "if people were meant to ____, we would ____" argument style. Are we not then "meant" to live naked in caves eating scavenged roots and berries?

Similarly, people cut the hair on their heads to make a fashion statement or to satisfy job requirements. Surely if our hair was meant to be worn at shoulder length, it would quit growing there on its own.

I don't think humans are in any way superior to other animals; but we are rather clever at adaptation. We mould our environments around us the way we want them. We create intentional relationships for purposes other than procreating. To that end, we're "meant" to do all the clever things we can think of, provided they are our own choice.

I think ultimately, the "meant to" arguments rub me the wrong way because they speak to an intelligent designer, a spiritual belief to which I personally do not subscribe.

Oh, well, yeah, it was a lame way to argue my point, I agree. However, I never thought it would come out that way, as if I was citing intelligent design -- being a non-theist myself. I just meant that biologically we have hair, and when puberty hits we grow hair "down there," because of hormones and all the changes a body goes through at that time -- so when I said "meant to" I was referring to the natural, biological, hormonal process of reaching sexual maturity, of which pubic hair is a part. There is a biological reason for pubic hair, I'm sure, though I don't know what it is.

In this context, when I talk about a "reason" or something "meant to be" a certain way, I really am just saying what is a natural biological process for humans - and having young girls wax or shave it all off, before they've had a chance to be sexual and relate to their own bodies and sexuality in a healthy, accepting way seems to be teaching them that there is something wrong with having pubic hair. At least, when you're an adult, you choose to do it out of a preference you have, not because you think it should be done automatically, no matter what.

Fair enough. I don't know why it pushed a button for me. Explanation accepted :)

And not only "wrong with pubic hair" but it teaches them that they are expected to change their bodies because of what other people think, which is sad. What's sadder is that their mothers have internalized that way of thinking, and do it without even realizing how detrimental that is to their kids' (and their own) self-esteem.

And that's all nothing compared to removing foreskins from baby boys. They don't get a vote even in principle, and the procedure is irreverisble. At least a 13 year old has the capacity to tell her mom to fuck off and leave her pubic hair alone. When she grows up, she can make the choice herself despite what her mom taught her as a teenager.

Yeah, I meant to complete my sentence with ". . . seems to be teaching them that there is something wrong with having pubic hair, or that their bodies are unacceptable just as they are."

I have to say, I really dislike shaving but I'm guilty of kowtowing to popular trends. It's so much trouble, but I do it anyway, even though I have had some problems with ingrown hairs getting infected. I keep saying to myself that I will let my bush all grow in again and just trim it. But then I'll be getting ready for a date and not want to disappoint the guy and I shave it all off again (except for a little patch). Being overweight with a bit of a belly, I really think bare looks dumb on me, but this is what people expect nowadays.

I started this thread because after being monogamous for 12 years, when I started dating after we separated, I was quite shocked to discover that men were shaving too now. It still weirds me out. I love it when a guy lets his pubes grow. As I said earlier, I love the fragrance that the pubic hair holds.

The part I don't understand is how men can stand to wax or sugar. I know how much it hurts me, and my skin is much tougher and I've got a woman's tolerance for pain. My husband "eeps!" if I accidentally pinch his balls a little too hard... and the skin is so loose. I just don't understand the physics of it all...

When I was dating Shorty, I asked him about that. He goes to a salon and gets waxed. He said he liked the sensation of the hot wax and it was always a bit of a turn-on for him, and worth the pain. I do recall him saying something about having to hold his dick out of the way and pull the skin on his balls taut so the esthetician could do what she had to do. I've never been waxed (legs or pubes) because I can't afford it, so I don't know how it feels, but I'm sure I wouldn't like it "down there." There is a video online somewhere which is a montage of women's faces at the moment the wax is ripped off their pubes and they all look like they're being stabbed or something.

Yeah, I get sugared about every 6 weeks. I'm not going to lie. It fucking hurts. It doesn't even hurt any less now than when I started 4 years ago. But it's so nice and soft after. I seriously sit there and like... pet myself. Not even sexually, just like... niiice kitty.

I also sugar my own legs and pits. I'm letting the legs grow out for the winter (insulation!). I took the sugaring course for about $600, which included enough sugar to last a couple years and enough of the other supplies (drying powder, spray, super awesome after-lotion) to last a lifetime. Legs cost about $60 and pits about $20, so it's paid for itself several times over. And unlike the full LA bikini (aka Brazilian), the pain in the legs does diminish over time. Pits still hurt, but they're a small area and it's over quickly. I like that when I'm done all that, I don't have to think about it until next month. I could never stand the tedium of shaving every day.

I think I'll ask if I can come next time my husband gets full body sugared. Honestly, it sounds hilarious. I've always thought man parts were sorta... funny looking. I'm just trying to imagine the ball sack acrobats required, and I can't help but laugh. Then again, I'm a wee bit off ;)

Are there any men here who shave their pubic area and/or chest on a regular basis? Just wondering why you do it, and if you do it yourself or go somewhere to have it done. My new lover is completely shaven (chest, groin, balls, everything) and this is the first time I've ever been with a man who does that. A friend of mine wondered if he likes to wear leather underwear and maybe being shaved feels better for that - hahaha! I'm going to ask him his motivation next time we're together, but I'm interested in other perspectives from the guys out there. Thanks!

For me I used to do it cause it makes it look bigger. Now I like the feeling and easy hygiene. The problem is when you do it over and over the hair coverage somehow spreads! I stopped shaving all the way when it started working its way up my shaft. But ya It`s eiither hygiene, he wants it to look/feel bigger, or thats just his style. All that matters is that you tell him your thoughts on it. S-so... do you like it?:p
