How to trim your pubes… for guys

Ever thought of trimming your pubic hair? We show you how!

Grooming your pubic area used to be the sole preserve of women. Many of their partners seem to like it and women have complied in growing numbers, creating an entire industry dedicated to styling, waxing, shaving, depilating and generally maintaining their nether region rugs. Guys wouldn’t even think of trimming their bush.

According to practitioners of this growing trend, there are several benefits to keeping your crotch-forest in check:

  • Thinning out or removing the jungle hiding your crown jewels will make your assets look bigger.
  • Some say it facilitates more sensual lovemaking, while others simply find the thought of exposing themselves down there quite erotic.
  • It makes for easier personal hygiene and cleanliness.
  • Your partner might find the idea of working with a clean slate more inviting than having to dive into a bristly thicket every time they’re on an oral assignment down south – nobody likes pubes stuck between their teeth.
  • As with other forms of bodily alteration, it allows you the opportunity to give free reign to your personal creativity.

  • Trim your hair with a pair of scissors or a body trimmer.
  • Have a warm bath or shower to help open the pores and ease the shaving process.
  • Use a quality shaving foam or gel which will help to soften the thick pubic hair and provide lubrication. Leave it on for a couple of minutes before you start to shave.
  • Carefully shave with a new pivot-head, multi-blade razor or a male grooming razor specifically designed for the job. Don’t use an ordinary electric razor.
  • Once you’re done, apply a gentle powder or moisturising shaving balm to the shaved area. Don’t use aftershave, especially on your testicles!
