Okay. So, like, here's the thing. Is there any specific way you're supposed to shave? Because, honestly, I don't feel comfortable with the outcomes with razors. And wax can be dangerous if not used properly. So I'm confused. I am very gentle when I shave, but I always get these spots of blood? Like I nicked myself. I know I didn't, though. It stings a little afterwards and it's annoying. How do I NOT get these random nicks when I shave? Any specific type or brand of razor, soap, cream, or whatever should be used? The stubble left also gets annoying. x_x

I use shaving oil for women and that works great under the shower, it takes like one second every morning and the result is really soft and moist skin. Try it out! Smile

Well you can use a battery operated razor or a disposable razor. Personally I use a disposable razor. If your pubic hair is long I would trim it first (with trimming scissors) so it's manageable and you can shave 'down below' easier.If you are using a new razor then I would be very careful because you can cut or nip yourself easily. The good thing though about using a new razor though is that you get a closer shave and it leaves 'down there' smooth.

My Tips:

~Use shaving cream or gel - choose non alcoholic and non scented shaving cream or gel.

~If the skin is irritated or red do no go over it again - it will just get worse and it hurts!

~Before shaving make sure you are wet, in the warm water to soften the skinand relax the hair follicle.

The thing with shaving 'down there' is that you have to have frequently because the hairs grow back fast and it can be stubbly. PersonalIy I just wait until it grows back to the way it was before I shaved it or if it grows back and it irritates/itches me 'down below' because it has grown back and the hair annoys me, then I shave it again.

i've read all of these posts and I wonder. Why don't any of you ladies have your better half do it. I do and it's wonderful I never get any nicks, no hair gets missed and u have a happy ending if u want. He's been doing mine for years, he thinks of it as a special treat. He loves doing it, it really helps change things in the bedroom because u give him that trust. You might want to give it a try and see. Yes I was nervous at first but now I don't worry about a thing.
