    What is the best thing to use for body shaving? I currently shave everywhere, except for the legs in winter. How often do other guys shave? What is your preference (hairy/bald/semi)? I use a razor with the Quattro blades and different types of lotion. Any help is appreciated!

    Thanks

    If you do a forum search on the word 'shaving', you'll find much discussion on the topic. The "Manscaping" topic has some good tips:

    as a man with some experience with this..
    better to use an electric shaver for the body
    a ref razor cuts too close and tends to make in grown hairs

    I killed my electric razor shaving, currently using bic razor and a lot of soap.

    for the hard to reach back I get it waxed every two months now.

    When shaving the boys, I use a shaving cream I got at target called Just Jack. It's really thick and creamy, and keeps everything well moisturized and soft.

    Nair was a real, real, bad experience.

    I usually shave everything year-round. This year, I decided to leave my legs for the winter. I use the disposable four-blade razors in the shower (at home or at the gym). I haven't had major problems with in-grown hairs. The best thing is to use a steam room before shaving, if you have access to one. Keep shaving guys!

    I use a Gillete Mach 3, drive shaving south of the border seems to work the best for me. Use a gentle stroke, no ingrown hairs and extreme precision without all the shaving cream.

    It's best to be erect or semi-erect when shaving the delicate areas and be sure to have a mirror you can squat over for the most delicate areas icon_smile.gif

    I've found that the direction of hair growth causes ingrown hairs. In areas where the hair grows in at any angle, use an electric, and not real close. On other areas, a razor is fine. Shave with the direction of growth, no against. In any real problem area, just trim very short. If you want it to look like thin natural hair, go with 1/2 inch.

    Hey dude try a fussion razor instead it was built to shave in any direction. As for triming before is a great idea but time consumming. Just shave every couple of days even if you see no hair it will keep it short and eventually have no trouble with ingrowerns. Nair is always a good way that i start to get ride of my hair after awhile of not shaving, then just shave every couple of days. No joke use the ladies shaver for the legs!!icon_exclaim.gif[color=red]COLORED TEXT GOES HERE[/blue]

    There are several body shavers for men out now. Target sells them. The one I use is a Norelco, and it works great. You can shave every where, and no bitting. Shaving with a blade shaves smooth but you'll get ingrown hairs at times. Just make sure you use a body lotion to keep your skin moisturized. And if your irritated and itching use some baby powder. Wearing underwear can irritate too. I don't wear any until it's cold out, then I back off shaving for a while.
    Have fun

    I use some random Gilette Mach razor, with whatever, 18 blades or whatever they're up to now, for the boys, and then everything straight back from there. Is that over-sharing? Hmm. Anyway, only that particular strip of skin shaves well with a bladed razor; the rest will get all ingrown, so I tend to just trim with a small pair of scissors or a beard trimmer elsewhere anytime I start looking a little shaggy (I'm not actually a very hairy person anyway; just chest, trail, and down under.)

    I use Gillette Sensor Excell for when I shave my balls. I have not had any problem with ingrowns if I keep shaving them once a week. I just use regular shaving cream but all in a very warm shower. I trim rest of my body with an electric hair trimmer. icon_wink.gif

    As a swimmer i have a ton of experience with this. It all depends on how long the hair is. If its super long i would use an electric razor first, and if there is a lot os tubble left over use a manual razor.

    For my chest and stomach i use a manual, same for my legs and back (if i can reach it).

    For other places (wink wink) i trim first and then buzz it off. If there is any stubble i use a manul VERY CAREFULLY!

    i use regular bar soap as lubricant...i know it sounds strange...but it works great! i also try to shave at night, right before bed...that way i can sleep naked and have nothing pressing up against my skin for at least 8 hours (that tends to help reduce the risk of razor bumps)

    preference: i love smooth everywhere (except for the head obviously lol)

    When I body-shaved with a blade it was a women's model, most recently the Gillette Venus. I believe there are subtle differences in blade angle compared to a man's razor for the face, that result in less nicks.

    Now I use an electric Norelco Bodygroom, designed for a man's body, including the groin, according to their own instructions. It can be used wet or dry. I have no complaints.

    "Everybody Jack" is from Target. "Just Jack" is from Will and Grace. Gay-wad.

    I agree. I have been using Philips Norelco for about a year now, and it's comfortable and painless for delicate areas that need trimming.

    I've been shaving my entire body for probably 15 years now. I use a Gillete Mach 3 razor and moisturizing cream shave (I get mine at Trader Joes). I tried the Phillips Norelco Bodygroom and personally wan't pleased with the results, but it probably all depends on how coarse your hair is etc.
