Default Guys who shave... down there

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!

I've known athletes who shave everything.

I should have clarified - he is not an athlete, so I'm looking for responses from guys also do it for reasons besides that.

My hubby does it for a couple reasons... first was a dare from me (you want me shaved - your turn!) and then it became a part of his daily habit in the shower - and he likes it

He likes the way it feels - and I definately like the way it feels

I like it, too, but I imagine that shaving the balls is not easy for a guy to do himself.

I tried it once. Decided it was NOT for me. Cut myself once, and said never again. My wife said she didn't like it anyway. She said it made me look like I was a really well hung 12 year old, and it was too weird. LOL

From what I understand, a lot of guys do it because they like oral from their women. This helps to keep the pubic hairs out of the womans mouth. There is also another train of thought on the matter. Some guys do it because it makes them appear larger than they actually are.

My ex does it himself. you have to have a steady hand and lots of quiet (so he said)

Wink Clean and Tidy

Both of my men shave down there. They do it themselves with a really good electric shaver. So it's not completely bare like a boy, but it's just clean and tidy. Which, does make oral sex nicer. (IMHO) My BF is just a hairy guy in general though, so his wife helps him shave his chest and back. Two reasons for that. First, he's a bit self conscious about it. (though I find it sexy!) The other is that he gets massages periodically to help with stress and the hairs tend to pull during a massage. He never shaves totally clean though.

I used to shave completely. Then I got annoying bumps (and, a herpes scare at that), and now I just trim the pelvic area, but shave my ass. I also shave my chest and head and facial hair. Everything looks and feels better that way, IMO. And, no itching.
