To Shave Or Not To Shave: That Is The Question
December 26, 2017
Most of us have our own thoughts about pubic hair. You might find that the hair doesn’t bother you at all. Maybe you are happy as long as it is maintained? Or perhaps you’d rather be totally smooth so that you can make the most of it. Either way, the decision to shave is completely up to you.
If you are struggling to decide whether to shave it off and bare all or you are wondering whether to simply manscape a little, this is the blog for you. I take you through the reasons why people shave, why they opt to go au natural, and just how you can get the best results.
Dare to bare
For many people, the biggest appeal in shaving all of your pubic hair away is that it makes your cock look bigger. Surrounded by bush as it is, your dick can become dwarfed by the forestry around it. Those who choose to shave have stated that their penises look bigger, and it becomes the focal point of attention.
However, there are many other reasons why someone might reach for the razor. It’s more hygienic. Dirt and sweat aren’t as likely to collect down there if there is no hair for it to cling to. It means that, during the hotter months, you aren’t as likely to end up with a smelly crotch.
Another big plus involves oral. At some point in our lives, we’ve all gone down on somebody and had to fish a rogue pubic hair from between our teeth. It is unpleasant and uncomfortable. If you get rid of the lot, you eliminate this problem. It makes your cock so much more appealing to lick and suck!
Of course, not everyone wants to shave their pubic hair away. For a start, shaving your pubic hair means that you are in for a lot of itching when it starts to grow back. This can leave you feeling really uncomfortable, especially if you get razor burn. Ouch!
It also requires a lot of maintenance. It isn’t simply a case of doing it once and that’s it. You have to keep on top of it for the best results, which means you spend a lot longer in the shower than you might want to.
Plus, some men and women like pubic hair. They love the natural look and can’t get enough of it, or they find it is a huge turn on to feel pubic hair when they slip their hand into your pants. All good reasons to keep things natural!
How to do it
If you have decided that you are going to shave your pubic hair, there are a few things that you will need to do. First, invest in a good quality razor. Don’t just use the one that you are going to shave your face with! You’ll want a nice and fresh one specifically for your crotch to enjoy the best results. Don’t buy cheap, either. Yes, you might be tempted, but quality is better, as poor quality razors can cut you and irritate the skin.
You’ll also need something to scrub the area with. Exfoliating gloves can help as they allow you to cover every inch of skin, ensuring for a smoother shave and fewer ingrown hairs. A good quality shave balm is important too. You want the razor to glide over the skin.
When it comes to shaving, get yourself in a hot bath and soak for a good five minutes. This will help to open the pores and to soften the hair, making it easier to remove. Then you’ll want to use a good helping of shave balm. Give it some time to ensure it soaks into the skin and the hair to further soften it. Now it is time to shave.
It can help you to pull the skin taut, but many find that it isn’t necessary. However, make sure you shave with the grain. Going against can make it easier to catch the skin and make it difficult to get a smooth shave. Once you have shaved the area once in one direction, change direction and make long strokes. This will give you the chance to get any hairs you may have missed.
When you feel that you are finished, check with a mirror. This can help you catch any areas the razor might not have shaved, and you can go back again. If you’re finish, remember that aftercare is useful. Moisturise the area to help keep it silky smooth, and this can also help to reduce irritation.
Do you shave?
Whether you choose to shave or not, it is a decision you will need to make for yourself. Your partner’s preferences might influence you, but if you’d rather stay natural then do it. For those who do opt to bare all, we want to hear from you.
