I never thought of that as unsexy; just par for the course. Not pleasant, but a familiar routine. It's changed now, since it seems so many men are manscaping nowadays. Just a few years ago, that would have been so odd if they weren't an athlete, bodybuilder, or gay.

I've been asking my daughter -- who is 23, lives in NYC and is SOOO much more worldly -- about Brazilian waxes, which she gets. She says the hair doesn't seem to grow back as quickly, plus it seems softer when it does.
Yes, I've heard hair grows back much softer and less heavy after waxing. Shorty waxes everything and he is always so-o-o smooth!

I bought a Schick Quattro bikini shaver for women, for $12 and it works great. One end is a regular razor, gets things very smooth, and the other is a battery-operated trimmer. Turns on with a button. I don't like going completely bald down there, so I leave a nice little trimmed up patch. You can adjust the guard on the trimmer for different lengths, and it works real well on those folds. But I usually spread things out so it's a fairly flat surface, KWIM?

Waxing can be expensive, so this was a cheapo alternative.
