    Getting very personal here, but I am into clean looking testicales and trimmed pubic region. I know some guys shave around the anal area too.

    The tought of waxing is too embarrassing and just too painful. Shaving only promotes additional growth and thicker hair. Chemicals I would think are too harsh.

    Do anyone have any suggestions?

    Hey dude.... normal face disposable razor are more than perfect. But shave "dry" without foam or gel and in the direction of growing hair not again it. 2 minutes by week and everybody are happy!

    First and foremost, DO NOT SHAVE your anal area...it will create a rash effect...instead just clip that area. It works for me.

    And as far as your balls are concerned, Mach3 or Fusion blades are perfect. I prefer to clip all around. This way, the 'fly paper' effect is avoided, and guys, let's face it...guys are supposed to be hairy and women super smooth.

    Remember that!!

    I gave up on shaving, I use my clippers to give my boy a low fade. LOL. Otherwise I feel like I have fleas when the hair grows back.
    Shaved my ass once, it's definitely no fun when the hair grows back. Plus it's not very attractive to be digging in your ass when it's itching.

    Yeah keeping your cha cha in check is essential to grooming. I seen some un-kept bush and it's unsightly. I really like the low-cut fades, and the prefect triangles.What i think is too much is when a guy does the the spades, or the one thin line from the belly button to the crotch. makes you look like a animal.Shaving it all all makes it look like funny too.

    oh my.

    I gotta tell...

    waxing: if you enjoy a masachistic exercise where you are in a very vulnerable and humble position - then this is the way to go, but careful when the hair grows back...ITCHY.

    trimming: I agree - not taking the hair all the way down past the skin does seem to prevent most rash or break outs.

    chemicals: unless you are a chemist - don't go there...if you want to know what it feels like, just put a bit of BENGAY on your finger and place it on your balls.

    I believe all hair is not wanted or needed in the world, but a hairless person looks completely funny to me.

    I just can't take a guy seriously when I see that his body has been plucked and shaved and trimmed and waxed. I just can't.

    a clean down under is so much easier to deal with. Shaving seems the easiest, providing that the person keeps doing it every few days.

    Saintvegetable:

    I agree with you...I also feel like a man should have hair...Now with that being said, the areas I think look hideous with hair is a man's back and arms...There is a guy in my gym who has really nice arms, but has hair growing all over his shoulders and triceps, it's really wierd looking...It goes back to doing what you like and finding the person who likes it...I am very hairy, and I dated this one guy i really liked and he loved my body, azz, etc. but wanted me to shave around my hole...he said, it tasted better when he went down...So I perceded to get in the mirror on all fours, with my butt stuck in the mirror so I can shave it nice and clean...It was the most craziest and funniest moment because all the while I am staring at my a**hole and it's staring back at me...We were both like 'what the hell are u doing'...I had a good laugh but man like the other posts, growing back its a pain...That was the last time and he is still around 3 yrs later, hair and all...

    I shave pits, chest, balls and the crack of my ass on a daily basis. The legs get shaved once a week. Pubes get trimmed with clippers every once in a while. No problems with itching. I've been doing it for years. I use the triple blade disposable razors.

    I shave my balls about as often as I shave my face - so if I'm having a lazy week not at all, if I'm on my game every day or every other day.

    I clip my pubes and my ass-hair though...but I've got long hair everywhere so when I clip my pubes it makes me want to clip my leg-hair too which would be an endeavour.
    /sigh
    Back hair is unsightly, mostly because it's almost always patchy - I tried nairing it a couple of times but I had soooo many ingrown hairs when it grew back that I will NEVER make that mistake again.
    I also naired my chest once - it was wierd having no hair on my chest after years of having it.
    Also, it was the middle of winter and I was pale and white and it just seemed wrong - I've always wanted to go hairless though (within reason, pubes are...required, I'm not 12) but I don't know that it would look right without a dark tan.

    Shave from the neck down.

    Shaving powder works great on the behind and pubic area, if you don't like a razor.

    Shaving DOES NOT make hair thicker. That's a myth (i.e., crap).

    If you suffer from ingrown hairs, you need to shave more often to keep the hair from becoming ingrown in the first place. If you don't shave often enough, you're asking for trouble.

    In this day in age, there's no excuse for not being well groomed.

    You don't need to take it all off, but, there's no need to look like the Geioco Cave Man, either.

    an electric shaver with a number 3 clip is great for the pubes

    i've done the crack and sack before, waxing and shaving and waxing is good for bikini line and under the balls but the hair around your arsehole is too sporadic to wax. shave that area (and balls) but it'll be really itchy for the first couple days.

    preference? i just trim the pubes and leave everything else.

    If you regularly keep those areas shaved, the itching no longer occurs.

    didn't think of that lol im really blonde sometimes (no offence to blondes)

    i only did it a couple of times to try out, didn't like it, but i shave my face once a week anyhow so all that maintenance wasn't suited for me.

    I shave I shave my balls and around the base of my dick. Also the taint. For quite a while there I also had a waxer, waxist…whatever they’re called, who would wax my entire butt inside and out – never have had any problem whatsoever with either method.
