haha well ok I don't know if the brand is also sold in the countries you live in but I usually use Lapiden. Veet is said to be better but I did not use.

btw, it certainly itches when the hair is growing back but the creme itself does not cause irritation in my experience. and it is effective.

I totally just came upon this thread, awesome Gotta share some of the tips with J. He doesn't shave bare, but trims it really close. I know he'd love to get it bare and I wouldn't mind, but the thought of a razor blade that close to there doesn't make him smile. I always thought the creams and such would burn, but maybe not!

I find short trimming preferable to shaving both in myself and partners. Keep things tidy and clean, and avoid razorburn and itchy pricklies growing in! (I find it particularly painful when a guy has crotch stubble and it rubs on your lady parts!)

I don't know, I like the feel of two bare skins touching each other. worth having a bit itching and hurting (which occasionally is also fun . as I've said I also like the alternative =)

I told him that we gotta get him some Nair as I just read a thread on it here and he told me "No way! You're the one with the 80's porn muff! You first!" *blush* Truth be told, I get gnarly ingrown hairs with shaving and Nair is too much for my lady parts, so I've gone au naturel. I guess him trimming was a hint to me, lol... I'll take that hint and raise him 1!

I just hope he lets me Nair it for him. I'd get secret pleasure out of seeing how he reacts, teehee. He's never been completely bare, so it could be interesting. I don't think I'll dig the stubble though, so he's gonna have to keep up with it.

Yeah, I started using the clippers with the guard on it. I think it's a #4. It works quite well actually. My wife likes it anyway. Just wanted to keep it nice and tidy for her.

This is my preference, too. I like having a bush, but for years just trimmed it - not even that short. Just so it wasn't too wild and tangly. I'd only do the bikini shave in summer time, but it's been years since I wore a bathing suit.

So, my husband was pretty hairy, never trimmed or anything, and during the last 12 years of being with him, had NO IDEA that it had become vogue for MEN to shave themselves completely. That's why I started this thread - because I met Shorty and he gets his waxed, and I was like... "HUH???? Wha? How odd! When did this happen?" In fact, Shorty told me that in one of his books, there was a character who was considered rather strange for completely shaving his pubes and balls, and it was written only five years ago! So Shorty himself never expected to wind up doing it (but he says the waxing process is very erotic). And then I was with three or four other men who shave completely. This made me realize it had become a trend.

Dreamy only trims his bush, but says he does shave his balls in the summer because he rides his bike everywhere, and it's more comfy.

So, with all this shaving going on, I started to do it too. I guess I just took the trimming down, down, down to shorter each time, then got a razor and shaved most of it except for a nice, sexy patch. Funny thing, though - if you've ever trimmed your own hair (on your head), and you are looking in the mirror and you see, "Oh, that side needs a little more," then you look at the other side, "Oh, wait this is too long, lemme just..." and before you know it, you've got a haircut wa-a-a-ay shorter than you originally wanted. Well, about two months ago, that happened with the razor on my pubes, and well, my nice little patch is hardly a patch anymore. It's only about the size of a quarter now. Totally an accident! But I can't bring myself to shave it off completely. I think totally shaved pussies look odd.

I like the feel of the area when it's all smooth, but jeez, that only lasts a day. I can't be bothered shaving every day! I hardly ever shave my legs and only ever keep up with my pits (like every three or four days - I'm not very hairy at all), but that's easy. It's hard for me to see what I'm doing when I shave my pubes, and I've been trying to keep up with it, but did get some ingrowns already. So, I think I'm going to let it grow back in, and just keep it trimmed short.

On men, I prefer at least some hair.
