    Alright I got to thinking and I will just say it plain out. I was shaving down below, I like the clean look. But I do not like shaving everyday and the itchy feel... So I was thinking about hair removal cream or a good waxing... I am afraid the latter will hurt bad.

    Soooo, I have two questions.

    Do the creams work?

    Has anyone waxed down there and does it hurt bad?

    Thanks,
    Steven

    shaving makes you look like an 11 year old boy or makes you look like you are in porno (or both).

    i think a neat trim with clippers works best. no razor bumps, no razor sharp blades, etc...

    How many times have you shaved before? For me, after the first few times, the itching stopped.

    I also only shave twice per week, which is very manageable and doesn't take very long after the first one.

    Otherwise, I would stay away from waxing; you don't want an accident to happen down there right?

    For about 3 weeks, twice a week. But after a few day's it's like a porcupine down there... So I would have to shave everyday or every other day, like a chore. But yea, it does not itch nearly as much as the first time.

    It gets better as time goes on, although by now you should be noticing that it shouldn't itch at all.

    I'm curious, do you use shaving cream or soap? I use dove and it works better than shaving cream, especially if I'm already in the shower (which is when I shave). It helps to sooth and remoisturize the skin, which might help you too.

    Hmm, I use cream. I will have to try soap, next time. Also I am sure this question will come up. I don't have an STD/STI, because I'm a virgin.

    Thanks CalBoy, will give it a try.

    ahhh the modern man in touch with his looks down below… hey weve all done it!

    i suggest scissors or clippers. shaving is too much effort and a clean shave is best left for the girls. the itchiness will stop after youve done it a few times.

    Waxing = evil

    It might be a little uncomfortable for you, but you can try these little small razorblades that are designed for the bikini area for women. I pick them up at Target for $6 for a pack of six. While you're at it, you can pick up the anti-bump shave gel too...just tell the cashier its for your sick gf at home if they throw you a look.

    And yes, the itching will stop after your skin gets used to it.

    Be sure that it's a moisturizing soap though (Dove comes to mind, but there are others). Other soaps (like Lever 2000, for example) will actually make it worse because they will further dry your skin.

    Well then, I guess my advice holds true then. :)
    No problem. :)

    Good post. Get one of those Remington trimmers with the adjustable guards. And trim. You don't need to be "clean" - it looks silly and is a pain. Trimmed and neat is better.

    Another vote for shaving. The itching goes away eventually. Just keep doing it and you'll be fine.

    Wait - am I to understand the OP is shaving it ALL off "down there"?

    If you're an adult male, you're going to look like a pre-pubescent -- so just something to be aware of. I know very few women and/or gay men who find that attractive. Some do, I'm sure -- but the majority don't. Most prefer it trimmed down, sure -- but completely shaved? No.

    I guess to each his own, but just want to make you aware it's very odd-looking on an adult male...

    Yes, to neatly trimmed pubes… but a definite NO! to this:

    I hope you mean you're only shaving certain areas *ahem* and not the whole lot…

    Looking like a pre-pubescent boy is so not a good look…

    Agreed. OP, if you desperately feel the need to style that particular area of your body, just stick to a trim. It is just disgusting that some guys would consider being completely shaven down there.

    I checked with my other half and she also thinks this is disgusting. Nevertheless, I am sure it will appeal to some guys and girls.

    Another vote for being trimmed and not shaven.

    While I prefer the trimmed thing too, it's the OP's preference what he wants to do and really not for us to judge.

    'Disgusting'? :rolleyes: That's kind of an overstatement don't you think?

    It's a personal choice, but a trim is generally in order unless the lady prefers you to bic it, which I've found to be the case more often than not.

    Stick to trimming. I find shave look to be rather unattractive.

    No glowing references for the 'back, sack and crack' then?

    I'm wondering, do all competative swimmers shave that area too? I noticed that if you wear something form fitting, there's a bit of an extra "ruffle" there. I would think that this would cause an extra disturbance in the water...

    Anyway, maybe some ladies would have a bit of good advice on this subject as they often have more experience shaving this area?

    I know alot of people seem to laugh at the website, but the product is actually great... The Norelco body shaver works great. It doesn't get down as close as shaving does, but it gets close enough.
