So, how many of you have ever shaved your down there area? How many of you do it frequently? I'm seventeen and want to start shaving down there, but I sort of have this minor irrational fear of razors and shaving sensitive areas. It took me a while before I used a non-electric razor on my face.

 

I have some questions actually which is the main reason for this post. Is there a certain way to do it? Should I use a female razor for legs? What kind of cream do you use? What kind of cream is best? Do you have any tips for a first timer? Please help.

 

I may have more questions later. Thank you for any and all help in advance.

I've both shaved and had Brazilian wax.  I prefer the wax - as shaving can lead to ingrown hairs, which are not comfortable.   Also, ladies don't care for the stubble.  When I've shaved, I used a fresh, disposable razor with at least two blades, and regular shaving cream - nothing special.  In the shower is best.

why would you want to?

My thoughts exactly, Ian! The only time that I have shaved down there is in preparation for some surgery. I didn't like the look or the feel and as it grew out, found it quite itchy and uncomfortable. I suppose it's to each his own and his partners preference!

How about embrace being a man

Ha. +1

absolutely!

This is a no-brainer.  Our fathers would have never had this discussion.  I'm sorry but for a man to shave below his neck is a symptom of something, not sure what.

Personally, I use that one razor with like five blades. I know many guys view this act as odd, but my wife actually likes it, especially since she didn't even know me before I started shaving my legs. 

For the record, I shave due to being a cyclist, and on that off chance that I wreck a bike on the road somewhere, this is done to reduce some of the skin damage that occurs, which is very much contrary to the "aerodynamics" myth that has been circling for ages.

Not really man, as I said, it's done for cycling.. I actually had so much hair on my legs that I had some fairly significant issues with ingrown hairs prior to shaving, now I dont have any of those sorts of problems. 

Not to mention, my wife likes it that way.

Travis - what percentage of your fellow cyclists trim short or shave?

If they actually race, all of them shave or wax. If they're merely recreational riders i'd say it's round half in my area.

A pair of scissors and a comb does just fine for me!

I shave the 'snail trail' below the navel, as for some reason it's not symmetrical..
