Default 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 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.

I used to just trim everything short, but now I prefer to just get rid of it altogether.

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.

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!

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.
