    Well, I've pretty much said it - should I shave my pubes?

    Any guys or girls got any experiences or advice to share?

    Any amusing disaster stories to relate?

    I've never done it - where should I start? (Apart from below the belt!)

    i regularly shave mine but im thinking for getting it waxed now, though i bet it hurts. Only downside to shaving is that when it grows back, it itches espically if you have small undies or sit down alot. Though after a while you do get used to it. also a good tip for when your shaving, TRY to let the hair grow back every time as its easier to do that way and shave with the grain as much as possible though you might have to go against the grain a little. also make sure you moisturise well afterwards. i think thats pretty much it lol and its hard to shave near your leg so mind you dont cut yourself! id try using veet or something first as that would be alot easier.

    My partner regularly shaves ‘down there’, not the whole pubic area but any hairs that appear on his shaft, his testicles, his perineum and around his arse. He trims the rest of his pubic hair and ensures there are no loose hairs by combing.

    I love the way this looks as it means I can see his whole penis and it therefore looks even larger.

    It is also makes the area look cleaner, more presentable and therefore more attractive. It makes giving him head even more enjoyable; I never find pubic hair stuck between my teeth anymore, I also far less often get hair in my eyes.

    Removing all his pubic hair made him look somehow less masculine and I didn’t like him ‘bald’ but trimmed is great.

    You must have tried it by now, how did you get on?

    My partner and I like to keep in trim, do it regularly is about the best advice I can offer. As a male, it is only recently that I decided to undertake a spot of topiary on myself (taking a lead from the porn actors who all shave their shafts to enhance the illusion of greater length). Likw Private Debora Cheri's partner I just shave around my shaft and testicles, I leave the pubic hair above my penis well alone. It works! Looking at myself when erect, and particularly when my girlfriend takes me in hand or mouth, it is a fantastic turn on! I look bigger! I know I am not but the visual effect works, like previous correspondents confirm. Cleaner too, although my girlfriend says this does not bother her. I itched the first few times I shaved but I now trim once a week and it does not cause me any discomfort (I use some of my girlfriend's moisturiser). One further note - I play squash with a male friend once a week and when I first shaved 'down there' he couldn't help but boggle when we showered after our game! He has never asked me, possibly thinking vasectomy, but knowing me, knows that will have been a few years ago! I have not put him out of his misery yet.

    I regularly shave below the belt.

    There was a point several years back where I swore I'd never shave on a regular basis because of the upkeep and the potential for ingrown hairs (which are *extremely* painful down there), but I've been shaving for probably a couple of years now and I'm extremely happy with the results. I do take small breaks now and then out of sheer laziness, but only until I either get fed up with the hair that's coming back in or until my husband complains and tells me to go shave.

    My advice would be:

    1) Make sure you use a good shaving cream or gel. You want to get a nice smooth stroke and get it all in one go, or else you'll end up irritating the skin quickly.

    2) If you're shaving for the first time or for the first time in a while, you'd be best off trimming the majority of the hair length off with either scissors or one of those electric razors with the adjustable blades and then shaving off the short hair that's left, otherewise you're going to get the razor all gunked up with the longer hair and make the whole experience miserable.

    3) If you get what looks like it could be an ingrown hair coming in, take care of it as soon as possible. I use tweezers to open it up and then pluck the offending hair out before it gets nasty and painful. It doesn't happen too often (generally when I'm not using a sharp razor or I'm wearing really tight clothing right after shaving), but when it does it's not pleasant.

    4) Use a sharp razor. A fresh razor is your friend when it comes to shaving the bits. You really don't want it snagging down there. Trust me.

    O A SEX CHIMP If you do take the plunge I say the above advice is spot on about the scissors etc. But just you wait until your other half gets down there and kisses/licks your balls. You would not have believed how sensitive they become when freshly shaved. Don't mean to be course but you have to find out to know.

    i always shave mine down to hollywood but i am curious about brazilian style but i dont know if i can through with getting it waxed at salon, not because it would hurt but the pure thing with getting our pussy out in front of them and getting in awkward positions i should imagine.

    Ugh, I tried the Hollywood once and hated it. I think it looks bad on most women, but I seem to be in the minority there. There's no reason not to shave it all off if you want to try the look though, why would you need to get it waxed just to remove that extra bit of hair?

    Ive trimmed/shaved/veeted. And found the best, and easiest method is by using a beard trimmer. It trims them down short but after a few days they grow to a good length. This stops the possiblity of ingrowing hairs and removes the need to be really careful, you still need to be sensible, rather than careful when using grade 0 tho. its whack whack whack and youre done. I dont like the look a hollywood gives me so i use the trimmer so its all there but just short. I do like it on girls tho, nothings worse than a hairy minge!!!

    I shave all the time. I use mens razors, and i also pluck if i get an ingrowing heir.

    I was waxed once (full, hollywood) and i loved it, but i got friction burns on the crease where my outer labia meet the thigh - the skin there's a bit thinner than elsewhere and it didn't like the repeated ripping of the wax.

    Twas good for a while though!

    I have waxed plucked and shaved, I have an epilator that plucks all the hair out, your not suposed to use it on your nether area but I find it gives me a nice long lasting result, it doesnt rip my skin and pulls out short hair, if I happen to have any hair that escaped epilator I tweese em out.
    I would recomend removing hair as it look real nice and makes ya feel real sexy :P as for how you do it thats up to you!!

    Ammm, not every girl likes shaved pubes... As a sexologist i'd say actually there r sum girls (like me) that really don't care about that. Hair look sometimes much sexier.Besides there r girls that take hair as a fetish (i'm in that group, too).I actually told my boyfriend not to shave.Well,this of course requires a very good hygiene (otherwise gets stinky :-) )...

    There are also sum women that get sick of hair in that area (like my best friend). Why don't u ask the person u want to shave yourself for what would be better?? ;-) For example i ask my boyfriend how he likes it, sumtimes he even wants to do the "haircut" himself. I'd say that's pretty hot. Well, also depends on how u like your own body more...

    I find shaving very erotic and a big turn-on. I love to be bare. But I don't do it any more because of the horrible itching with the regrowth.

    However, I am seriously thinking of buying one of those home laser hair removal machines, which apparently can also do 'underarms and bikini line' as they coyly put it.

    Does anyone have experience of this and would it work on my pubes?

    Oh and just as a thought - if you (or any other readers) would like to shave your pubes off, why not just do it and see if you like it? Life is short and hair grows back, so why be afraid of it?

    Obviously be careful and try not to nick yourself. There are lots of 'how to' guides on the web. As with any erotic adventure, the planning is half the fun, so perhaps buy yourself some special new underwear to wear once you're shaved. I like the tiniest g-strings possible, but it's also very erotic to wear nothing at all and slip your hand down for a feel any time you like.

    And once you're all smooth and soft, have a damn good wank or twelve. It feels amazing on freshly-shaved skin. Try rubbing baby oil all over your pubic area. Best to do it on the weekend as you might well not want to leave the house for a few hours. Yep, it feels that good. Hell, when you're buying nice new underwear, you might want to order a few new toys as well. Make it a real occasion. A wankathon!

    Then spend a week leaping into the air at inopportune moments and scratching inappropriately as the hairs grow back. But you'll have had the experience and you'll know if you like it enough to put up with the itchies or persevere with the daily shave.

    My boyfriend and I both prefer saved pubes. I get a wax about every 5 to 6 weeks and the first time was not easy! More just from pure embarrassment than pain but now that I’ve found the right girl, it’s not so bad. (although paying for it is still painful). I too am curious about electrolysis but don’t know anyone that’s done it. How I wish there was an easy, low cost method.

    For men, I love the look of a neatly trimmed penis and it’s become a must for my boyfriend. No man should be completely shaved because it just doesn’t look natural, but if done right; it absolutely enhances the look and feel. He uses an electric trimmer to crop most of it off while leaving a natural tapered look above. His scrotum is completely shaved using a razor and he tweezes everything from his shaft. He says that’s the most import part as it spreads the sensitivity down the full length of his penis and gives him a better orgasm. He’s blonde with fairly thin hair so stubble isn’t an issue. For men with dark hair or thick follicles maintaining a natural look and feel may be more difficult and they shouldn’t shave as close.

    I hate body hair. If a lady can shave herself then why shouldn't a guy? I use a Philips bodyshave for the most part (twice a week usually) and for the areas where that doesn't quite reach I'll use a two bladed razor while in the shower. Doesn't take long. Being smooth down there feels very sexy and looks a whole lot better than a bush.

    Dep cream is dangerous and I would urge people to stay away from it. I've had bad experiences with all the major brands - chemical burns on your balls aren't pleasant.

    I've never been able to work out how to get rid of the hair on my balls. Shaving is out of the question because the skin gets caught in the razor (ouch!) every time. Plucking would be tooo painful and I don't want to smear toxic chemicals on my dangly bits thank you very much. So I'm kind of at a loss as to what to do...

    If you dont wanna shave your dangleies then I would advise a close hair cut with some scissors, just be careful not to castrate yourself :O ^_o

    I've been shaving for years now got it down to a t. At first i use to get little nips, but have not done so in a long time. The feeling is great when your having your balls sucked (without hair).
