Do you shave or wax your pubic hair?

    I started shaving my pubic region when I was around 18 (I lived in the tropics and having a "clean" pubic area is so much more comfortable). I did not really like the stubble that appeared a couple of days after (it itched) but got used to it over time.

    Does anyone else shave (or even wax) their pubic hair? I think it is fairly common among women but how about men? I know male performers in adult movies do it for hygiene reasons as well as to make their genitals look bigger on camera, but what about ordinary guys out there?

    A majority of the men I have encountered do not remove their pubic hair. I personally choose to remove my pubic hair, and have better results with waxing, rather than shaving.

    Waxing your hair completely removes the hair from the follicle so that you do not have to deal with the stubble associated with shaving. One should always be sure to exfoliate their skin after shaving or waxing hair to prevent skin irritation. After waxing I like to use a sugar/salt scrub and gently exfoliate, followed by a good moisturizer. Beware of cheaper lotions which may clog your pores and produce bumps.

    One should also consider going to a salon and having someone professionally remove your hair. Although some may be weary of this at first, you should consider how important your skin down there is to you. A professional will be sure to maintain your skin so it looks healthy and clear.

    In the past when I tried shaving, I would have irritation and itchiness for a few days. I also don't really like the look of my pubic area when it is completely shaven. I think it looks like an ostrich. Since then I bought one of those body hair trimmers and keep it trimmed super fine. It's a lot easier than shaving and the end result isn't irritating for me.

    I have shaved my pubic hair since I was around 14 years old, with a normal razor. Lately, though, I am just shortening it with a good scisor. Takes less time, my skin feels much better and doesn't need to be scratched and there is a much smaller chance that I get hurt during the process. :)

    It's really irritating when you shave your pubic hair and it starts itching. Have you guys got any remedies to help neutralise it?

    I shave it quite often, even though it itches like hell afterwards for at least few days. Honestly though, if I wouldn't do it if it wasn't for my girlfriend. You see, I don't have any other option :)

    On a more serious note, I am looking for a better alternative to remove my public hair. Does anyone have an idea?

    I really don't like shaving my pubic hair, the only reason is because of the itch...

    I also tried to shave my pubic area in my teens and just like the others here, I never liked the itching especially when a random erection happens and I'm inside a crowded public transport. Now I am just content on trimming my pubic hair which can be very refreshing during hot weather. The thought of waxing down there just makes me cringe.

    I don't like the idea of wax my pubic hair. Although I asked my girlfriend to do it and she has been doing it to please me lol. As for myself, I think it'd look really weird walking around like a little boy who hasn't hit puberty. My girlfriend had mentioned once or twice in a joking tone that I should shave my pubic hair too... I doubt she was truly serious about it though haha.

    The problem with shaving is that you have to shave almost every day in order to keep it clean. It's too troublesome and I don't like the "clean" look on myself LOL. I do like that "clean" look on my girlfriend.

    I won't let a razor anywhere near my package. I had a buddy back in the day whose wife asked him to shave it all off and he went through hell itching and crap. He made sure to warn the rest of us never to do it. I instead use one of those personal trimmers to clean up the area and when the balls tighten up I can get a good shave on. Hurts like a hell if you get a piece of the sack though while trimming. That's why you gotta wait for the bag to tighten up.

    I have never shaved nor do I intend to. I don't feel the need for it, everything is perfectly functional :) and it doesn't make me happy to imagine having to shave another part of my body besides my face.

    Yes, a close trim would be a better idea and much more comfortable than having a close shave. I wouldn't try waxing everything (what do they call them these days, "Brazilians"? "Boyzilians"?) off, but I imagine this would be the best choice for long-term comfort (after the short-term pain!)

    I also think that repeated shaving tends to make the skin less sensitive. I notice that removing the hair around the scrotum also makes it more sensitive, an interesting sensation during sexual activity.

    Anyway thanks for sharing, it has been very enlightening reading your views and experiences.

    I do it often and insist my spouse does it too. The pubic hair supposedly was nature's invention to reduce inflow of dust and dirt to the privates - somewhat useful back when humans were yet roaming around naked and trying to make fire... but now, I think we are better of without them. Especially for folks who are into full-on oral sex ;)

    Interesting, I never did know the history of pubic hair. Thanks for the biology lesson lol! I agree though I like my women with minimal pubic hair.

    Men like women have their own personal preferences, some are all-natural,some trimmed, some completely shaved. From personal experience it is a pain after the stubble starts growing in, excessive itching for a female is a worst possible occurrence. I have an ex-boyfriend who could not stand body hair and shaved on a regular basis. But he is the only male I know of (besides a porn stud) who shaves rather than just a little trim.

    I heard that the stench (when someone sweats) that emanates from the unshaven underarm or pelvic region of men actually is a turn-on to some women. If this is true as I suspect it is (considering how women fall for blue-collar workers) then why should men wax their armpits or pubic area?

    I dont mind some hair - but I dont prefer a bush and neither am I a fan of clean-shaven privates. A clean-shaven-down-there woman makes me feel I am having sex with an adolescent or something lol

    Anyone watch the TV series - 'Spartacus', they take the trimming to a whole new level :D

    I used to wonder why we have to deal with this thing. You seem to have the perfect answer for it.

    Now back to topic. I don't shave my public hair, because of the itching that ensues afterwards. It's just too irksome for me. I trim it rather than waxing or shaving it. But then again, I am not much into oral sex.

    I don't mind some hair - my wife trims but still has a decent amount. I trim mine very close. I find it keeps me dryer longer on hot days to not have hair and I don't develop as much body odor down there without hair. I like it much better with as little as possible. I'd shave if I had the dedications.

    I don't shave my pubic hair, and, I think, I won't ever. I find my pubic hair sexy, and it adds up to my being a man. I don't ever wanna have a clean-shaven dick area. Messy is sexy.

    Haha..how classy of you. Now that's whom we call a hairy man. Shaving the public hair is just so tedious and irksome task.
