Shaving, trimming pubic hair

About every 4-6 months or so I trim my pubic hair, I prefer it a little shorter for personal reasons. At any rate, I was wondering if people have any tips. I've "nicked" myself once or twice, and try to be as carefull as possible.

The other thing, after trimming my pubic hair, I find my penis and scrotum somewhat clamy. Is this normal? I'm assuming that lack of hair between the penis and scrotum may be accountable.

I've tried to use talcum powder, but it doesn't seem to be working that well.
Any thoughts ?

Re: Shaving, trimming pubic hair

How do you trim your pubic hair? I`ve shaved mine a few times and each time i start to feel clammy, and it`s hell when it starts to grow. Now when i trim myself i always use a beard trimmer or hair clippers will also do the job.
This way i can have it as long or short as i want and there`s no chance of nicking myself and it doesn`t leave me sore.

Re: Shaving, trimming pubic hair

Ok.. so clammy is normal

I have a pair of barber scissors I picked up from a drug store. (the long thin type).

I sometimes use a razor (very carefully).

But I find that it's difficult to trim myself, I tend to do things a little uneven. lol. I guess that just comes with practice.. but the itching is bad when it comes back.. lol

Today I used a lot of talcum powder, and I felt it did help more with the clamminess. So maybe I just wasn't using enough.

Yikes, I can't believe you use scissors!

Definitely pick up an electric hair clipper from Walmart for 10 bucks. I trim myself every 3-4 weeks and use the number 2 adapter.

Another advice guys.....

try "conditioning" your hair down there so when it grows back, it won't be so itchy and your hair would be softer. Do it about every other day.

Re: Shaving, trimming pubic hair

I keep mine trim too. I'm small so trimming makes it look a little bit larger. I started with scissors but am now using a beard trimmer.

Thanks for the conditioner tip Fab...
