Get Him to Get a Beard/hair Trimmer
If he is excessively hairy, have him use an electric hair trimmer which will cut the hair back (anywhere on the body).

If he doesn't like the itch from shaving, hopefully this is an option for him and you!

Best wishes,

The pain can suck pretty bad when it's growing back in... Just tell him to keep it clean, and next time trim...

I'm a guy and I shave down there once in a while but after a while you get use to the itching and then you will get to the point where it feels normal. It itches because your hair is trying to grow back. Good luck.

Hmmmm
I started shaveing 5 years ago...Im 18 now....And I dont feel any itching...Maby thats because I shave regularly and I make sure I rub aloe vera gel on the area day and night untill it grows to the point where it needs to be shaved again......If your boyfriend can commit to those steps he wont feel itchy...But if he dosent want to shave extensively then he shouldnt shave.....

Simplest solution is to just trim, you don't have to shave it all away to make things look more pleasent, and this way you don't get the itching.

Active User, very eHealthy
-always trim the hair short prior to shaving using an electric clipper.
-take a warm bath prior to shaving.
-use shaving cream, or shave in a tub filled with warm water.
-shave once with the grain to remove the bulk of the hair, and then once against the grain to smooth it out. Don't shave any area more than twice to reduce your chances or razor burn.
-i recommend a gillette mach 3 turbo; they work great for this!
-use a new blade each time.
Wait atleast 3-4 days after shaving prior to shaving again to reduce razor burn, ingrown hairs and other problems.
-use talcom powder after shaving to reduce the itching.
-don't use after shave.

I shave the down below, and for the first couple times it get's really itchy, and you will most likely get a lot of red bumps (razor burn) lol but after awhile you get use to it.. Make sure to go down first, and then up very litely, yeah, sounds messed but it works
