It can be  scary thing wielding a sharp razor so close to your private area, even more when you’re a male, so if you’re feeling nervous about shaving down there, you definitely need to keep reading.

But why should you remove your pubic hair? First of all (and perhaps to many the most important  reason), shaving it can make your erection look positively huge. When your pubic hair covers up part of the shaft, visually it can seem much shorter. The hidden part of the shaft will be revealed and can make your penis look a half inch longer. But, of course you wouldn’t care about that would you? lol

          The Benefits Of Shaving Your Pubic Area

I am sure I do not have to get into the exact details about the benefits but I have provided a short list below to help those peeps who may be wondering.

Nice smooth skin.

No hair means it will smell better. (Seriously)

No more scratchy pubes on her skin.

Trimming the bush makes the tree look taller.

Less friction from the hair results in greater pleasure.

Less expensive than waxing. Also, a lot less painful.

A sleeker look that generally is considered more attractive.

     The Possible Negative Effects

Just like shaving your face, there can be some downfalls to shaving your man bush. Below is some of the possible risks involved. Most of the risks and negative aspects can certainly be avoided if you properly follow the methods described below and practice safe sex.

Irritated skin, but not always.

There is the risk of small razor cuts.

Possible razor burn if not done correctly.

Pimples & ingrown hairs depending on your skin type.

Choose a Method

There are two ways you can use to shave your pubic hair off. These two methods include:

Method 1 – An Electric Body Groomer

Method 2 – A Manually Operated Razor (Traditional Shaving)

Either of the methods above will give you great results and we will be walking you through each step of both methods to insure you can keep trimmed with ease. If you are not too sure which one to choose, we have written a short explanation

Electric Groomer or Manual Razor?

There are a few different things to consider when choosing your preferred method. It all depends mostly on the “quality” of shave you are looking for. A huge factor when talking about a quality shave is time. A manual razor is gonna be the best quality shave you can get. You can expect to have a very smooth, clean, shave. The only downside is it is a bit more labor intensive and will require more time than using an electric razor.

If you are looking to quickly trim or shave your pubic hair, I would go with the electric groomer. However, keep in mind this won’t end up being super smooth. It is still a very effective method. And don’t get me wrong, the significant other will still thoroughly enjoy it.

Choose Your Tools

Depending on which method you will use, you are required to have a few tools for your “tool” to get the job done right.

Method 1 Tools (Electric)

BODY POWDER

ELECTRIC BODY GROOMER

ANTISEPTIC

Method 2 Tools (Manual)

RAZOR BLADE

HAIR TRIMMER

SHAVING CREAM

PRE SHAVE OIL

BODY POWDER

ANTISEPTIC

General Pubic Shaving Principles

As you probably know with your face. Try to always go against the grain. Doing so will produce the closest, cleanest shave. If you tend to get skin irritation, acne, ingrown hair, etc from shaving then you want to consider going with the grain as this will irritate the area much less.

Keep your skin pulled tight is a MUST when shaving your balls. Seriously. If you do not, your skin will hang loose and this will result in lots of razor cuts. This goes for both the manual and electric methods. A cut on your sack absolutely sucks and it can bleed quite a bit. So absolutely be sure to keep your skin nice a taut by pulling it. You will have to adjust and do what works best, but you will get the hang of stretching the skin for a cut-free finish.

Originally Appeared In shavingballs

Next to the popularity of beards, the removal of body hair also known as MANSCAPING especially in the pubic area is another grooming trend and these are some reasons for this- trends in porn, pressure from partners and oh the acclaimed ‘optical inch’ pubic hair removal supposedly provides, however I believe some men just prefer the way it looks and feels. Did you know that a survey by Gillette showed that 92 percent of women prefer a man with a tidy trunk line? (I know I do, lol)
In fact, a whole industry has been developed around keeping men’s ‘downstairs’ clean and fresh so grooming below the belt isn’t an eyebrow-raising oddity but rather a practice you should probably consider taking up. Yes you, the gentleman reading this.
Do you have concerns or questions you’ve always wanted to ask about the ‘down below’ grooming but were too timid to ask? Well here is everything you wanted to know.

BATTLING A STINKY SACK 

It’s widely known that the male groin has a distinctive (if not universally appreciated) aroma. This musky smell is largely a result of the concentration of apocrine sweat glands in the region, some of which produce a modified form of sweat that some people find sexually attractive (hmmmmmm?????). Unfortunately, after a hard day’s work, these odors can become more toxic than intoxicating. (hehehehehe)

The solution? A quick dust with a refreshing talc-like powder designed just for ‘the boys’. Not only will such powders keep the fellas clean and fresh, they’re also a great solution for “batwings” — the unfortunate affliction where a sweaty sack temporarily bonds to the thighs. Application is simple – just sprinkle or spray a moderate amount of these miracle powders in the boxer briefs and then hit the road.

TRIM BEFORE YOU SHAVE
A light trim is often all that’s needed to neaten pubic hair, but if you prefer an altogether smoother look, and are using a razor to achieve it, trim the hair back first with a specialist device like the Philips Body-groom or Wahl Body Groomer. Any of these will make shaving much easier and safe.

TAKE A COLD SHOWER
If smooth balls are what you sought after, splash them with cold water before shaving so skin is taut and less vulnerable. Use a transparent shave gel like (Gillette fusion clear shave gel) so you see where you heading and make sure you use short, gentle strokes and for the sake of your balls, please make sure you are sober! Afterwards, apply an unscented aftershave balm just as you would after shaving your face.

EVEN THINGS OUT
If you just want to trim pubic hair rather than shaving it all off, the be sure to also trim stomach and chest hair to a similar length to keep things balanced.

MAKING TRIMMING A ROUTINE
To reduce the risk of itchy re-growth, you need to get into the habit of shaving regularly. If your worry is about unsightly spots forming after you shaved, try using an antiseptic spray like Outback Organics or Elemis Tea Tree S.O.S Spray.
Chafing, caused by skin rubbing itself can occur everywhere from the buttocks to the armpits, also the groin is a prime area. You are especially susceptible if you are sport man and, if you’re prone to perspiring a lot as sweat can make things even worse. Using Sudocream Antipseptic Healing Cream is the best way to soothe chafing.

Before any male steps out to go somewhere whether a wedding, hangouts, see some friends or any other occasion, he makes sure that his dressing is on point, looks and smells good,am sure you get where I’m going with this. But before he steps out of the door, he must make it a point not to leave these 10 things at home. Well, you may  leave some but not more than two. Here are the 10 things every male should  make it a point to leave behind when stepping out.

Cell phone:
You must definitely not leave your cell phone at home no matter where you are going even if it’s a visit to a corner shop. It can be useful if you will get to the location late or earlier than appointed Or others my reach you on it in case of  emergency. So please don’t leave it at home.

 

Cap/Sunglasses
With this hot sun, you just can’t go out and face the sun without a cap or sunglasses. A cap goes for anyone actually but you can opt  for sunglasses because they add some style to your outfit even if they are not worn for what they were made for like protecting you from the sun.

Condoms:
In my opinion, It is very necessary for every guy to have at least one condom on him when going out. You never know what may happen out there, you could bump into an ex or even “catch a new fish” and you can’t control yourself, the condom becomes useful.

Earpiece/headphones:
You can pick up your earpiece before leaving and play your favorite playlist and put them on.  I prefer earphones/earpiece because they are smaller and convenient. But make sure tune down the volume for safety reasons.

Handkerchief and a Backup:
This is a necessity to have on you when going out. You must have at least two on you or maybe one handkerchief and a face towel. The reason for the backup is that you might loose the first one or you might bump into someone who might be in dear need of it.

Charger/ power bank
This should be added if you will be out for a long time and you think your phone’s juice won’t last all the way. So this is to keep your phone charged and avoid walking around with a dead cell phone.

Wrist watch/Bracelet:
Men are mostly noted by their wrist watches but some don’t really digg the vibe from wrist watches. That doesn’t mean you will have to let your wrist go around naked. At least a bracelet in any form, whether beads, leather, rubber, ornamented etc. Just make them feel good.

Wallet:
A Wallet is like a portable folder or account that contains I.D’s, ATM’s, phone cards, money, passport pictures, etc. So if you decide to leave this at home, then you have a big lesson to learn. Even if you don’t have money in it, just pick it up and let it be in your back pocket, it may come in handy and it also creates some illusion of having cash even when you are totally broke, especially if it’s a fat wallet with lots of documents and small amount of money.

Small comb:
This option isn’t for everyone especially those with really down haircut. But if you fancy hair and you keep yours, get a small comb, put it in your back pocket and use it in a restroom when you get the chance to check yourself in the mirror.

Pen:
This is mandatory, just in case you bump into someone who needs a pen or y or fill something out, you won’t be caught in hot waters.
