Hair on Penis shaft

I have some hair on my penis shaft, which I feel uncomfortable about. I've shaved it a few times, but I've heard that plucking is better because the hair will grow back slower.
But I'm concerned that it might cause red bumps, pimples or ingrown hairs more than shaveing?

I'm not concerned about the 'ouch' factor, I pluck my eyebrows a lot and the pain goes in time.

Thanks!

Re: Hair on Penis shaft

Hey bud, its really nothing to be too concerned about....all of us have some pubic hair on the shaft of our penis to a certain degree. I'd be really careful about shaving it, plucking may be better but you'll have to do it all the time. What bothers you about it? Just curious.

Re: Hair on Penis shaft

I tweeze the hair. It does seem to take longer to come back, however you will sometimes get the red bumps you mention. Also, there's a pretty good chance that periodically you'll get an ingrown hair that will need to be dug out. It's not removing ingrown hairs, but it's not the most sightly result, either. As the hair grows back in, it's not a stubbly as if you shaved, though when it's short, the hair can be a little stiff. Once you start, you'll not want to stop since as it grown back in you'll feel it and want it out. If you shave, you can get one of those small electric trimmers that run on a single AAA battery. They work well and will not result in any nicks that you could get with a blade. I wish there was a depilatory that would work. Unfortunately, if you try Nair (bikini), you'll wish you hadn't. The tissue on the underside of the penis is too thin for a dipilatory. Every adult male has some hair on his shaft. Good luck with your decision.

Exclamation Re: Hair on Penis shaft

My hubby has some hair on his penis too. He takes a pair of scissors and carefully trims them down. This method keeps him from cutting himself with a razor, having the pain of plucking & keeps him from getting pimples & razor burn.

Re: Hair on Penis shaft

Excessive hair on the penis shaft can be due to too much skin removed in circumcision, causing drawing up of scrotal skin too high up the shaft. That said some intact guys like Lance also have hair on the shaft. If you have almost no loose skin left to move when mastubating, then circumcision may be a factor. You can stretch the remaning skin to fix this problem.
