Re: shaving pubic hair.
I've tried a few methods after shaving regularly for a few years. Here's what I've come across:
1. For the longest time I was pretty carefree (probably not to my best interest) and used the same razor for a long while. While it didn't really cause any problems, I did get bumps. I would just shave with the razor in the shower with water running on me and I shaved with the grain (against the grain gave too many bumps).
2. Recently I've been shaving with soap or hair conditioner. Both work excellent and give a great shave with few or no bumps. With the grain again.
3. Shaving depilitories like Nair and the famous (on this board at least...do a search on Woman's Sexual Health) Magic Powder. Magic Powder worked great, but it was a pain in the *** mixing it with water and all that stuff. Go this route if you have the patience. Nair is great for everywhere except your testicles...OUCH! And you thought sun burn was bad...I really liked how easy it was to remove hair everywhere else.
The best way to go would probably be a razor and some conditioner or soap. Less irritation and you get a nice good shave. If you go against the grain of your pubes (mainly above the penis), you risk getting lots o bumps. Using Nair on everything except your testicles and then using a Mach III (everyone's favorite for shaving pubic hair...I love it) on your testicles would be another great way to get the job done, and you'll be smoothest after that. Hope this helps! Have fun but be careful!
