(e/n) Shaving... down under!

Koesjpost Deux: The Worksafe Edition!

I'm using the (e/n) tag here (used to be reserved for entartainment/news, quickly devolved into emotional/nonsense, everything/nothing) because this stuff really hasn't got anything to do with what this site stands for but since this is the Everything Else forum I hope it will stand...

Anyways...

[size=18][color=darkblue]Do you guys ever shave your [/color][color=violet]!PRIVATE PARTS![/color] [color=darkblue]or even the entirety of your pubic hair area?[/color][/size] (you notice I'm shy like that?)

First time I came across shaving the nuts was looking at male pornstars and how they have to preserve their cleanliness henceforth ditching the sack-straws. Some guys tricked me into doing the thing myself when we were pissed drunk during our football championship celebration and I kinda liked it, itched as hell though. Just a couple of minutes ago I geared up for Ballsack-Attack II: 'Double Entendre!' and needless to say I liked it again. I really am under the impression that the ladies will go down easier with a cleany shaved sack area so that makes foor a good enough reason anyway

Ah. I just hope you''re not walking around showing your ""cleanly shaved sack area"" to these ""ladies"".

Anyway, as I''ve heard from a bodybuilder friend of mine, you shouldn''t shave, because hair comes back stronger. You need to try some hair removal products first (like nair and so on), or wax.

But waxing... that area? OH no.

This is one subject where I''m not ashamed to proclaim I love Bush!

According to ladies with which I have spoken and/or been intimate, simple grooming of the region is encouraged and appreciated. I make no use of a razor or nair, though -- the sideburn trimmer on my Norelco does quite well. Just be sure not to get any loose skin caught in those little blades! Ouch! As a result, my finished grooming job is not skin-bare, but trimmed to what have been verified as satisfactory levels. I''m not trying to impress a camera, you know.

Koesj, are you still drunk from that case of beer?

Well, removing that forest is a good idea"… In the sense of personal hygiene.

I have nothing to comment on the topic, but puttings ""balls"" in bright pink large text isn''t exactly friendly for those of us browsing from work.

Actually, Pyro has a point... but I''m lucky to have my own office! However, that never stoped co-workers just walk in for a brief chat at the wrong moment...

Pink balls NWS? There really is some restrictive policy out there eh? I''ll see what I can do...

I am disturbed by this topic. I am more disturbed at the ads Google decided to display along with this topic. I think I''ll just back slowly out of the thread ... slowly ... slowly...

Oh. My. Fricken. God.

That absolutely rules! You guys got any better ideas of messing with the ad system? How about a thread on penile enhancements or Nigerian investmen opporunities?

I agree with Elysium.

*backs away....slowly...*

Holy sh*t, I wish you hadn''t pointed that out. eww....

And really, its not so much the fact that ""OMG HE SAID BALLS LOL"" but that it was unnecessary, we can read the text fine without it being bright pink. Since these forums are really mainly read while people are at work, it was just not a good idea, I didn''t think it''d get anyone fired. Now it looks better though, and I appreciate helping out with the worksafeness, because like I said I don''t think itll get anyone fired. That said I am getting the hell out of this thread. The Google ads keep haunting me.

Don''t know whats the problem with you guys, I only get ads about hair removal products...

On the topic I agree with Bosephus, Koesj, you sure it had only 5%?

I need alcohol. Now!

aftershave replacement?

Strange thread. I think I''m learning more about some of you guy''s than I want to......*leaves to go find Elysium and Ulairi*

hair today gone tomorrow

*rim shot*

*tap dances*

Shave and a haircut...two bits!

Anybody notice that the really crazy threads all around here all involve bush?

sure did. It''s a conspiracy I tell you!

I remember reading somewhere from a rep at Gilette that the whole ""don''t shave because it grows back stronger"" for eyebrows/body hair was a bunch of crap. They did studies and found it did not grow any faster/thicker on shaved vs unshaved.

That said, shaving *down there* - un uh.

Damn my curiousity, I just had to click on this thread. And im in agreement, those ads are creepy. This topic is a little to much for me.

Rat...did you cut yourself?

The reason why shaved hair appears to grow back thicker is this: Natural-length hair has a tapered shaft, with a tip that is about 1/5 the width of the root. (insert obligatory shaft/tip/root joke here) When you shave, you cut the hair at a wider point in the shaft, leaving a blunt, untapered end. Thus, when the hair continues to grow, the entire length is as thick as the base of the hair, making it appear as though hair growth in that area is darker/thicker/etc.

Hmmmmm, a spammer that lurked for two weeks to be able to post a link, patient and cunning.

dejanzie, you also shouldn't quote spam links, it improves their ranking.

Itch?

No thanks, I don't trust you. That Nigerian prince who sent me this personal mail on the other hand...

edit: removed the quote, thanks MrDeVil.

Reading that against a picture of Inara...brings back memories. Of a simple hairy time when all the down under was free.

I'm from Australia and I shave my face every day... does that count?

Also my rule of thumb here is "if you want someone to put their mouth their, shave it". Nobody likes a mouth or noseful of hair.

I admit that when I read the first sentence, it was not my face I thought you were referring to.

This is bollocks, if you'll excuse the pun. It looks like it comes back stronger, because hair is thicker at the root than at the tip. But it doesn't.

Also my rule of thumb here is "if you want someone to put their mouth their, shave it". Nobody likes a mouth or noseful of hair.

Addendum: "...or at least well 'scaped."

Lemme just say, the Phillips Bodygroom works well. I use it in a variety of places-shoulders, hoo-hah area. Once or twice a month is usually fine.
Helps keep things dry when running and less musky stank.
