A “friend” of mine once knew a stipper and asked her how she got so smooth… she said the trick was to use Desitin (the baby butt cream) and there was no irritation or bumps after. I am not sure if this was AFTER shaving or instead of shaving cream… but I am pretty sure it was AFTER shaving. Whatever… it worked! I’m told.
Witch Hazel. Make sure there’s no alchohol in it (owch!), and just apply it with a rag after shaving. Also, shave in the direction the hair is growing, NOT against. Not as close, but less painful. Works for me!
Also… there’s a product called “Magic” which is suposed to work wonders. Put it on, let it sit for a while, and you can shave with a butter knife. I’ve never tried it, because I can’t find it, but I heard it’s, well, magic!
DON’T get “Bikini Zone.” It doesn’t work (at least for me) and it smells nasty.
Dude, until you start talking about toothpaste lubricant, there’s no such thing as TMI.
Anyway, I shave (groinal region) just like I normally do, and I never have any problems with “shaving bumps”. Although I also shave in the shower. Maybe the constant flow of water has something to do with it?
I’ve found I don’t have a problem if you do it regularly. If you let it grow too long the area is more apt to get irritated. There is also a product called “Bikini Zone” that I’ve found works well after.
If your wife has a strong compsiton, then by all means try NADS… the stuff works wonders… and the hair won’t grow back for a good long while.
NADS works the best in the sugaring, waxing fame I have found.
However, I would try it on your leg first. That’s right … your leg. So you can see how FUN it is to RIP that strip of fabirc off!
It hurs like hell on my legs, I don’t think I could venture it on my … ahem… groinal region.
Don’t use Nair or the like…that stuff is STRONG… and if you accidentally get some on…ahem… internal lips… your wife will be rewrded with a burning sensation akin to having that area being rubbed vigerously by a man with a cheese grater and then liberally dousing with grain alcohol.
Otherwise, just shave.
ALWAYS use a fresh, brand new razor when shaving the nether regions (I keep a bag of disposals around for this purpose).
As mentioned, shave in the direction of hair growth, not against.
Go down to your local sex shop and see if they carry Coochy Cream. This stuff is a shaving lotion that will eliminate those nasty razor bumps. What you do is apply the cream, wait a few minutes (I use this time to wash my hair), then shave as normal. This is the only stuff that has Ever worked for me. My friend’s husband even uses the stuff on his face with excellent results.
