We tell you everything you need to know about a close shave.
Depilating sex is aesthetic and hygienic
Hair removal or shaving of the pubis and testicles have undeniable aesthetic benefits.
Know that the “virgin forest” atmosphere is no longer attractive, gentlemen!
In addition to this sexual connotation, hygienic reasons are also regularly invoked.
The hairs are accused of promoting the development of bacteria and therefore bad odors.
Their depilation or their shaving allows to limit this kind of inconvenience.
Be careful, the skin is sensitive and the hair is often thick in these areas.
That’s why we’re going to give you some tips and techniques to adopt (or avoid) to get started with hair removal or intimate shaving with confidence.
Our advice for proper waxing or shaving your pubic area and private parts
Intimate hair removal with a razor: be careful!
Intimate shaving with a traditional razor is the most frequently used method.
Disadvantage: it requires regular care, even if it is quick and practical, in the “maintenance” phase.
Because it will take patience the first time to overcome pubic hair.
The use of scissors is even recommended for “brushing” before shaving completely.
But beware! On the testicles, the risk of cutting is greater given the fragility of the skin there.
It is also advisable to warn you against a rather unpleasant risk; severe itching frequently occurs during regrowth.
Regarding the choice of products, Gillette released an “all-terrain” razor, the Gillette Body, which is very effective for shaving the penis.
We have talked about it several times on Bestflirtingtips, but really, we recommend it!
Finally, as with shaving the beard, we suggest applying a moisturizing lotion to soothe and protect your skin after the blade has been through.
The must: apply a little talc to find a real baby’s skin and avoid redness!
The electric hair trimmers: we do not recommend!
Regarding the electric epilator or hair trimmers, the answer is simple: it’s no!
Usually borrowed from a woman, these devices are not designed for male hair removal.
Especially because our pubic hair is much thicker and more abundant than that of female genitals.
Painful operation in perspective.
This is because the trimmer cannot pull out all the hairs at once, and may even break some of them.
This then promotes poor regrowth and increases the risk of ingrown hairs. In short, the next step…
Depilatory cream and foam
Hair removal creams and gels have several advantages for intimate hair removal.
Practical and quick to use, they are also painless.
Among the most effective products, a depilatory foam is specially adapted for men’s privacy: Sold in the form of an applicator pad, this mousse is easy to apply and takes only a few minutes to work.
However, beware of allergies!
Most dermatologists advise testing the cream on a small area of skin before waxing.
Depending on the type of skin, depilatory creams can indeed be the cause of irritation or allergies.
Finally, just like shaving, depilatory creams and gels simply destroy the hair on the surface.
Regular monitoring is therefore necessary to prevent unwanted hair from growing back too quickly.
Waxing: you have to suffer to be handsome
Waxing sex is painful, but oh so effective.
It has the advantage of lasting quite a long time (between 2 and 4 weeks) and leaves the skin feeling soft like baby’s skin.
Institutes generally recommend using hot wax, rather than strips of wax that you warm by hand.
The intimate hair is particularly dense, the latter are not effective enough.
You should know that it is easy to make your own oriental wax at home: it is cheap and very effective!
Finally, be careful, the wax must not be applied to the mucous membranes, which are much too fragile to withstand such treatment.
There is no danger for the pubis and buttocks, but great caution is recommended on the testicles, whose skin is thin and fragile.
Therefore, absolute ban on waxing the inter-gluteal fold with this technique, the mucous membranes of the anus would probably not resist it.
Intimate hair removal in a salon: the must
Although more and more institutes are now accepting men, not all of them practice intimate hair removal.
So make sure you ask at the time of the appointment.
More expensive, this method has many advantages.
Hair removal is perfect, performed by professionals and lasts up to 4 weeks.
For those who want to be done with their pubic hair for good, laser or pulsed light sex hair removal can also be an ideal solution.
You just don’t have to be embarrassed if a pretty beautician approaches your dear anatomy!
But don’t worry, the people who work in these institutes know how to put you at ease.
