    The mean age of those injured was nearly 31, the study found. But almost half of the injuries in women occurred in those aged 19 to 28 -- with nearly 29 percent occurring in girls younger than 18. In men, the harm was more evenly distributed, with about 37 percent in those aged 19 to 28, and nearly 30 percent in those aged 29 to 45. Only 16 percent of injuries occurred in boys younger than 18.

    Going by the trend shown, it would seem that people get worse at pubic hair grooming as they get older. icon_lol.gif

    Or gets better, in my case. When I was a teen, and grew a jet black bush that looked like an Afro, my first attempts at trimming were a disaster.

    The hair was very coarse, and I nicked myself horribly, bleeding all over. And within a day the stiff stubble that grew back put me into agony. Nor could I use scissors to just shorten the longer hairs, the itch was beyond belief.

    It wasn't until my 40s that my hair had finally thinned & softened enough that I could trim it. So no, at least in some cases manscaping gets easier with age. What the stats might be showing is the older age at which more people begin attempting to groom.

    Use electric clippers. I use it on my head, my pubes, my legs.

    I recently saw a cool demo on how to shave someone's crotch and ass with a straight razor. Definitely intriguing, and just the right amount of scary.

    I used to shave every month almost... but the red/itchy bumps and ingrown hairs were not worth it to me anymore icon_mad.gif! So I use a comb and scissors and trim to avoid cutting any skin icon_razz.gif.

    I've joined the Brotherhood at the Art of Shaving... yeah... great products... no more bumps and nicks for this 3 piece set... Also a trim is nice but something about a defined triangle is fucking sexy. Some guys look beautiful natural but that's pretty rare.icon_twisted.gif

    A friend who was a nurse did that to an annoying patient once (before an op).

    Yeah, mine thinned out to almost nothing following my radiation and hormone treatment for cancer. Not chemo, though, so I didn't lose the hair on my head, just on much of my body. That was about 18 months ago, and it still really hasn't come back.

    Just go as slow and carefully as possible, you're not trying to skin a deer. Or if you're going for the smooth baby look research the products you use before hand. You have to be careful with the assets

    Keeps the boys groomed but like a full bush. Too many shaved guys in the gym, Don't understand the guys who have a hairy body but no pubes whatsoever. Not sexy.

    I use clippers for the bit of trimming I do, but I have managed to nick my privates even with electric clippers and a guide attachment. I guess I'm just clumsy.

    I can't wait for my pubic hair to grow it back. I used a regular razor and I didn't suffer any damage, but now I feel like a preteen without my pubic hair.

    I'm the only openly gay guy at work who shaves/trims his body hair.

    Most of the straight guys do it.
