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!
I'm glad I found this! I'm 34 and I have shaved "down there" for 15 years now. I've always hated having hair there. Last year, I asked my wife about what she'd think if I shaved from the neck down. She was indifferent about it but stated she helped her ex shave so I took the plunge. I've been cleanly shaven from the neck down for over a year now (except the arms...she won't let me do them and I wouldn't want people at work to know I shave anyway). I got past the ingrown hairs and rarely get them now because I've been doing this so long. I absolutely cannot stand body hair and think it's gross and disgusting, especially a full bush! I just don't subscribe to the social norm that men shouldn't shave body hair. I also don't think they should be chastised if they do shave/groom. Anyway she likes it, especially my back cleanly shaven and now she's so used to it that if I go a week or more without shaving I get comments about it. I love nothing more than her hands and fingers on my back during sex, especially with finger nails! I also tan too. I guess you could call me a metrosexual but I don't do nails and stuff LOL. I just don't want to be pale and hairy. I've spent all my life not really caring about how I look or being able to afford to do much about it and now I do.
The biggest problem that I run into sometimes are the red bumps that come up, particularly around the bikini line area, bum, and armpits. My solution is this
. I have a small travel bottle that I use but I altered the recipe a bit to: 10 aspirins ground up with a mortar and pestle, 5 drops of glycerin, and enough water to fill the container (about a 1/4 cup maybe). I keep the bottle in the shower and after I'm done shaving, I shake vigorously and apply to my pubic area, bum, and pits like a tonic. I get very few red bumps afterward. A good, clean, sharp, 3 blade razor is perfect for this too.
As for shaving my "coinpurse" I found it best to shave it when it's a little cold...when it's all drawn up. If the nuts hang low I can't do it. A dip in a cup of cold water helps.
Last, I love a good shaved vaj, even it's still a little prickly. In fact, prickly is like sweet agony to me and it gets me off every time!
