Re: where do u shave downthere?

It's not really a weird question. You can do whatever you'd like. I used to be really concerned about it. A lot of people just shave their "bikini" area. Others do everything, and most people figure out what they like best and what is easiest to maintain, and it usually falls somewhere in between.

Wherever there's hair I say!

Don't worry... you cant make a mistake. At the very worst, if you don't like what you've done... just think.. "It will grow back.." Also, be careful shaving. Use shaving cream, not soap, and be sure to exfoliate your skin afterwards. In-grown hairs can be very painful.

Re: where do u shave downthere?

Yeah definitely use shaving cream/gel and a good razor! If not you can get pretty irritated aftewards. You still might get irritated at first, but this stopped after the first few times for me.

I choose to shave it all off or leave a small strip that is barely there, but some people choose to get creative and do shapes, a "landing strip" with more hair, only do the sides, or only the part that shows out of your underwear.

Re: where do u shave downthere?

Maybe I'm doing something wrong with my shaving practices but I still get the little red bumps after maybe 1-2 days of the shave. Is there a way to alleviate those? They itch more than anything, other than that they are gone in a day or two.

Re: where do u shave downthere?

I have been shaving for years and still get them, even if I wax too. A couple of things to consider when shaving the pubic area: the hair is very coarse so I suggest taking a bath to let the hair become soft, say soak for 10-15 minutes. Trim the hair before you shave. Use shaving cream instead of just soap. Make sure your razor is sharp, preferably a new blade and don't go over the spot too many times as this can damage the skin and contribute to the bumps. Use Bikini Zone, yes guys can use it too. A couple of days after shaving exfoliate the area gently. St Ives Apricot scrub is good for this. I still get the bumps even when I do this but not as bad. Good luck!

Also shave down with the hair...it works better and it also prevents some bumps...

Are you dry shaving?? You should definitely shave in the shower and with shaving cream. And with a nice sharp razor. Another thing that helps is moisturizer. I know its a girly thing... but if you moisturize the area after you shave it'll help.
