Shaving seems to be a debate worthy subject. For what it's worth, I think a trimmed guy is a hot guy. Bush is totally gross and shaved bald is just no fun and takes away from that oh so nice manly appeal.
Trimming is great for the bulk of the area, but there are some areas that I like hairless. Take for example the very top of the inner thighs or on either side of where everything is attached, ha.
If you do shave it is important that you DO use a new blade and only use it ONCE. Also only shave with
the grain. Any shaving, be it face or otherwise, damages the skin. Some of us feel that worse than others too. So take care.
For any shaving:
It's best to shave with the grain, in as few strokes as possible to minimize the damage. Then, to buy an extra couple of days, before you get all stubbly again, pass the razor with a light stroke (little to no pressure), ONCE against the grain. Follow everything up with some kind of "first aid". Some type of aftershave or healing lotion depending on where it is that you shaved, and pay attention to how sensitive your skin is. Don't further the skin damage with harsh products.
Remember that is perfectly okay to want to be neat. Just be mindful of how it makes you feel and how often & detailed you want to be. Furthermore, I suggest looking into some laser hair removal! It lasts a long time, can be made permenant, is safe and relatively painless. I'm totally going to invest when I get the cash
