The manscaping industry is something that didn’t even exist until recent times and globally the industry is estimated to be worth around $4 billion dollars today. That is a lot of hair getting removed. One of the most popular types of hair removal is pubic hair removal. This trend has become very popular, but is it really worth it?
You are committed to shaving down there. What’s the best way to do it?
It’s a daunting prospect to start off the process of pubic hair removal. There are a few options that you can choose from that allow you to carry out the process.
Shaving using a razor is a daunting option but will provide good results. This is not a job for a cut-throat blade. This method will require a steady hand and a lot of chutzpah. If you plan on using this method make sure you have a fresh blade because any nicks in the blade can cause ingrown hairs and potential cuts. Your scrotum is not a place you want a razor cut!
Your other options include hair removal cream. If you fancy this method then you there are male specific pubic hair removal creams such as Nair for men, that can be used in the shower without dripping down your legs.
Your final option is to use an electric shaving device. There are also male specific hair removal trimmers such as the Mangroomer Ultimate Pro-Body groomer and trimmer.
Should you do it at all?
Though this is a popular trend and if you’re here reading this, you probably think it’s a good idea so I’m going to throw some evidence against pubic hair removal for your consideration.
- Itching and irritation – If you shave your pubic area the hairs will grow back and by all account,s new hairs growing back can cause all kinds of irritation
- Pheromones – Your pubic hair encourages sweat. This sweat in your pubic region is caught in your pubic hair. You may say “urrrgh” at that idea, but it serves a purpose. These pheromones are what make you smell attractive. Aldous Huxley used to wipe his handkerchief on his sweaty pubic region and then put his handkerchief in his top pocket precisely to smell more attractive. Go figure.
- Genital warts and other disease – Pubic hair is designed to protect your genitals from skin on skin contact that can transmit diseases. Genital warts are transmitted far more easily on a shaven public region.
- Expense – Once you commit to shaving, to maintain it, it will cost money over time. How much will you spend on creams and razors?
