Onhealthmeup.com - In the past women were the only ones who need worry about shaving their pubic hair. We, as men, know that shaved pubic area on women is attractive, and looks streamlined. We've oftentimes trimmed or groomed the hair to make it look nicer, but there's only so much that can be done with a pair of scissors and you certainly wouldn't want to use a razor "down there".
Because pubic hair has a density to it, it gives the illusion that your penis is shorter than it is. Cut the pubic hair back, and there is an optical illusion that your penis is bigger and fuller than it was before. When a woman is looking at it, foreshortened, the length can be greatly emphasized if you shave this area properly. Male pubic shaving will allow you to make that penis spring forward and look larger and more streamlined like a jet airplane.
Also, just as with the foreskin, hair can act as a trap for bacteria and yeast to proliferate which isn't a healthy condition. It keeps moisture in, which encourages a kind of yeast called Candida albicans and tinea cruris (the fungus responsible for that dreaded jock itch) to take up residence there. If you perform male pubic shaving, this will be a thing of the past.
If you want to safely groom this area, you shouldn't be using a razor blade. Just think of it, do you really want to use a stainless steel unprotected knife on your pubic area? You know exactly what a razor blade, particularly one that's been dulled by using it a few times, can do to your face? Do you want the same thing to occur on your balls? So, of course, you shouldn't use those to do the male pubic shaving.
I apply a new tool designed to trim men's pubic hair named the Philips Norelco Bodygroom. The Bodygroom has a protective shield which makes the procedure a safe one to perform, and it's fast. Once you've used one you'll understand that shaving gives a more artistic presentation to the women. They see you as being cleaner than other men, they'll also like the longer look and this will turn them on.
Over-the-counter “depilatories” or cream hair removers: This method of hair removal is painless, but it’s important to be aware that not all “depilatories” are safe to use in your pubic area. Be sure to read the product label first to make sure it is safe to use in this area, and follow the directions on the package. These products can have a strong, unpleasant smell. Don’t leave the cream on any longer than indicated. If you notice redness, swelling, or a rash, it could be mean that you are allergic to this type of hair remover.
Method Of Pubic Shaving
The main reason that men haven't shaved their pubic area is that there has been no safe implement they could use which would allow them to safely trim this area. Some men trim their pubic hair, others prefer to shave or wax, and most guys just leave it alone. It’s not necessary to remove the hair in this area to keep your body clean; it’s just a personal preference.
Waxing: A thin layer of warm liquid wax is applied over the hair you want to remove. Next, a thin cloth-like material is placed over the wax before it hardens. It takes a couple of seconds for the wax to get hard. Once hard, the cloth strip is quickly pulled off. This method of hair removal stings (when the cloth is pulled off). Waxing is different than other hair removal methods because the hair is removed from the root so it doesn’t grow back as quickly. If you decide to remove your pubic hair using the wax method, it’s best to have it done at a salon or spa that offers to wax as a regular part of their services. If the wax is too hot, you could burn your skin. Do not shave before waxing.
Trimming: Trimming is the most basic and affordable way of maintaining the appearance of your pubic hair. You can use a good pair of scissors to trim your hair. An easier way to trim is with an electric trimmer – just remember that you have to use it when you are dry and never using in the bathtub.
Shaving: Some men who want to remove pubic hair prefer not to shave because the hair usually grows back in just a couple of days. In the meantime, your genital area can feel itchy and prickly because the skin in this area is very sensitive.
Shaving doesn’t make the hair grow back thicker; this is just a myth. However, if you want to keep the area hairless and smooth, you’ll need to invest in good tools such as scissors, razor, shaving cream or gel, and plan on shaving every couple of days.
Laser hair removal: Laser hair removal is done by a professional and is a procedure that uses a strong beam of light that penetrates the skin to destroy the hair follicle. The laser beam gives off heat that destroys the hair follicle. The hair eventually falls out. Results can vary from person to person and some people may notice temporary redness and swelling after the treatment. The procedure itself can take up to an hour depending on how much hair is removed, and you must wear protective eyewear throughout the treatment. Laser hair removal can be pricey and take 5 or more sessions. Sometimes it may not work. If you choose this method of hair removal, first schedule a consultation with a doctor who is board certified in dermatology or cosmetic surgery and who has experience with performing laser hair removal.
Electrolysis: Electrolysis is the only hair removal method that permanently removes the hair. A needle-shaped electrode is used to destroy the hair root. It usually takes up to 25 sessions to completely remove all the hair roots and the cost can vary depending on the treatment.
Safety Guidelines :
- Trim as much hair as possible before you begin shaving – DON’T use a dull pair of scissors.
- Soak in the tub for at least 5 minutes to soften the skin and pubic hair before you shave.
- Apply shaving cream or gel with aloe vera or another soothing agent (made for men) over all the areas you plan to shave. Reapply as needed.
- Use a new/sharp razor – DON’T uses a dull blade or disposable razor.
- Hold the skin tight with one hand and shave with the other hand. Avoid using too much pressure.
- Shave in the direction that the hair grows, using slow strokes.
- Rinse your skin with warm water after you are done shaving and then pat dry.
- Apply baby oil or lotion with aloe vera to the shaved area when you’re done. Avoid scented products because they may sting your skin.
- Razor burn (rash)
- Chemical burn from over-the-counter cream hair removers (depilatories)
- Cuts, pimples and/or blisters
- Infection in the hair root – the medical term for this is “folliculitis”. Shaving is a common cause.
- If you develop a rash, red bumps, or itching on your pubic area there are remedies you can try at home. Symptoms usually go away within a couple of weeks.
