Grooming, trimming, or removal of pubic hair is entirely a matter of personal preference. Some people prefer to go all natural, others may choose a bit of a trim, and others may prefer to get rid of it entirely. Keeping your pubic hair short or absent can help with intimate hygiene, can help you feel cooler, or can be considered a must-have prior to intimacy by some.
If you choose to go au naturel and leave it as it is, this article may not be of interest to you. For those who wish to remove a portion, or all of their pubic hair, here are the things to try and those you should steer clear of.
This method is the one used most frequently but is far from the best option for pubic hair removal. Using sharp blades around the delicate skin of the scrotum is bound to result in nicks and cuts at some point.
Razor burn is another issue and can leave your intimate areas feeling like they are itchy, scratchy, and on fire.
Most men are familiar with the process of shaving since many opt to remove their facial hair in this way so the solution makes sense in that regard but the razor burn, ingrown hairs, and need to repeat the entire process every 2-3 days can turn into a high maintenance nightmare.
This method can also cause chafing and skin irritation for your partner as the hair begins to grow back.
This method will not leave you free of hair but can be a quick, lower maintenance option for keeping it all under control. As scissors are sharp, you’re definitely going to want to be able to see what you are doing so a mirror may prove helpful. This method does not cause irritation for your partner but if you both prefer the bits to be bare, it’s not an ideal solution.
These solutions usually come in a cream or lotion form and require that you slather it on the area you wish to remove hair from and wait the noted amount of time. This method will totally remove the hair so it gives you that bare option you are looking for.
Depilatories are chemical lotions so they are not the best option for anyone with skin sensitivities or allergies to chemical products. The area is left smooth and hair free and hair will grow back more slowly and less coarse than it was previously. These products, even if they say they are scented, still have a chemical smell to them that many people don’t enjoy.
While there are many salons and in-home kits for hair removal with the use of wax, anyone who has ever seen how it is used is going to wonder if it’s a good idea to use on your delicate genitals.
While this method would be ok for the pubic region itself, use of it on the testicles would not be so pleasant. Salon providers specifically trained in waxing male pubic hair would likely be the only way you should even attempt this method.
This method is really good at removing unwanted hair. Hair takes longer to grow back, the amount of hair reduces over time, and hair grows back softer. You could try it at home with kit specifically designed for men if you’re feeling particularly brave.
This is the ultimate best hair removal method for those who know they never want to see pubic hair on their body ever again. This method will eliminate pubic hair 100%, never to return.
You must be committed and sure that you never want to have pubic hair again before you consider this option.
While it does work very, very well, it must be performed using direct electric current by a trained professional. It can take anywhere from 2-12 hours’ worth of electrolysis to remove all hair permanently and can cost anywhere from $25-150 per hour. It is, however, a one time cost.
Laser removal is another permanent hair removal option. It, too, is quite expensive and involves the use of a laser by a trained professional. Laser is faster than electrolysis and less painful but it doesn’t work for everyone and may require repeat treatments. This method works best on those who have dark pubic hair and is not recommended for those with lighter hair as it is not as effective.
Regardless of which method you choose, pubic hair removal, or manscaping, can help you feel more comfortable as well as more confident. Try a variety of options and see which one works best for you. If you know 100% you never want to see your pubic hair again, electrolysis might be your best option.
