I to keep that area void of any and all hair. I keep the chest waxed and the pubes very neatly trimmed too. I have tried to wax the area around the anus once. A little difficult to do on your own, but possible to achieve. I really did like the results of the waxing, but it was way to time consuming. So I just shave the area. I used to use a mirror when I first started doing that area. But now Im comfortable enough to do it in the shower whenever I shave the balls. I really do not understand why we have hair down there either. But the above post seems very logical to me. Not all, or maybe even many guys are into shaving that area as much as say, trimming or shaving the pubic region, I dont know, but to me it makes me feel good about myself, and thats all that counts.
