    Haha I thought i'd post some advice about shaving, since i know a lot of guys who cringe when I tell them that I use a straight razor to shave my ball/grundle area. Haha sounds like a bad idea, but ive been shaving my face since i was 12, and now shave every day and my pubic area every week, so i've developed a good technique along the way that works for shaving any part of the body.

    Bumps, itching, redness and rash, collectively known as "razor burn", is caused by poor shaving techniques. You can prevent razor burn by:

    1. use lots of shaving gel (gel, not cream)
    2. wet the area with warm water before hand
    3. press lightly with your razor; too much pressure is was leads to cuts and bumps. Hold the razor steady, but dont press hard.
    4. shave with the grain. Go over each area a few times with short, light strokes shaving with the grain.
    5. Moisturize the area with body cream or lotion both directly after you shave, and every time you get out of the shower. Showers dry your skin out a lot (mostly due to the soap) so you gotta keep the area moisturized.
    6. Dont EVER use a dull, rusty, or damaged razor; the results can be CATASTROPHIC! icon_mad.gif

    Follow these steps, and you'll be good to go. Believe me, i shave my face everyday, and my grundle/pubes/balls/asshole once a week, and not only do i never get razor burn, but i dont get much itchiness in general. Hope this helps! icon_biggrin.gif

    I apply 40% alcohol after toweling and before moisturizing.

    I use to use a razor in college. I didnt like the idea of having sharp objects near my manhood. I switched over to using Nair...which gets some heads to turn. Some times I get a small reaction of razor bumps but I use tend skin and it clears up the problem.

    Pfft, some bear, toting proper shaving procedures! Traitor.

    I never shave. I trim with a beard trimmer without a guide.

    You shave your "manhole" but not your chest, I must admit you may be the first gay guy I have met that does one but not the other.

    I am letting the hair around my crown jewels grow in again, shaving was just getting to tiresome.

    haha that's because hairy chests are sexy, but sweaty black hairs all over an asshole are kinda gross, especially if you want to taste said asshole icon_wink.gif

    AND you'll be happy to know that ive never shaved my chest, legs, feet, back, etc. Only the face and privates icon_biggrin.gif

    As for alcohol; i hope you also use moisturizers! Alcohol has a very high vapor pressure, and thus tends to evaporate very quickly, which will further dry out your skin

    bearcub...I've read your advice and I still find myself needing some guidance.

    Perhaps you could post a video of yourself shaving the aforementioned areas for my own personal edification (and tittilation).

    thanks for your help...

    I'm with Buckwheat on this one. I think I need to make a personal inspection of said groomed areas to verify that you can retain your cub status. icon_twisted.gif

    Wax the back and trim the rest, but a straight razor? hmm. And the guy who said Nair??? That's like spreading napalm on your nads. icon_eek.gif

    I hope BearCub17 you have some latex between your tongue and your sexual partners' hole. You can get some very nasty infections from that part of the body. Just a friendly warning.

    for me its all about the shaving cream. Kheils is the best - hands down. But I have always used soap for the balls, taint and hole. The later is not kept up with regularity. Always had someone to shave it for me... guess being single brings on some new responsibilities. Straight razors still scare the hell out of me.

    have a shower before you shave the steam really opens the pores well and also slackens the sack for a smoother finish

    SHAVING: I would knock it except I've tried it. I guess it was ok, didn't follow any of the tips above, got burned and I mean literally!! Once the irritation went away, it did look pretty, but I prefer the natural look.

    there is nothing that turns me on more (when it comes to being by yourself) than a freshly shaven crotch lightly sprinkled with some gold bond.


    hahaha. :p

    I like to shave in the shower. I use the Neutrogena for Men pre-shave scrub and shave cream with a Mach3 Turbo razor. The vibrating effect does help it glide and it rinses easier.

    Bearcub,

    Would you be so kind as to film an instructional video on the topic? I'd especially be interested in your straight razor technique of shaving my ball/grundle area. If you need a camera man, I'm sure you could find one here.

    I shave in the shower as well - new razor with lots of shaving gel - and take your time! You don't want to rush down there! icon_wink.gif

    I have the most problem with my chest - I don't want to shave completely but would like to have a more "trimmed" apperance. Anyone have any suggestions?

    lol if you all keep goading me, i may actually do it icon_twisted.gif

    For just trimming, i have a braun beard trimmer my parents got me for Christmas that has a few length adjustable features. That's how i keep my chinstrap short, and i use it on the small bush that i keep so that it's buzzed but not clean-shaven.

    I think this was posted here some months ago. I bought one. It works pretty well.

    Timberoo and I have the same shaving routine, apparently (even the razor). We're talking about the nether regions, right?

    I like keeping things well manscaped down there, but there's no way I'd use a straight razor! For that particularly masculine fact alone, BearCub can retain his bear status. That's hardcore.

    I use a Norelco bodygroomer, which does a formidable job of keeping things under control. However, I opt (and prefer) the deforestation but well maintained "fun zone". Hey, if mowing the lawn makes the house look taller, so be it.

    I tried using a safety razor in my younger, stupider days. And the acrobatics required in manipulating the mirror, the razor and my junk proved to require more dexterity than I had at my disposal.

    The worst part about over de-hairing the taint-ular region? Swamp balls.

    On a hot day, they're the worst.

    I recommend a light dusting of Gold Bond. Keeps things dry and has a pleasing tingle.

    Also, I would like to note, this is the most I've ever written about my balls in a public forum.
