Ok, so we’ve tackled the topic of Manscaping Uptown already. We are now moving downtown… to more sensitive subject matter.
It’s pretty common knowledge that women don’t like hairy backs… other areas are a bit more controversial. However, unless you’re dating one major hippie, I can guarantee you should be busting out the trimmer you purchased during our first manscaping installment. At the time of writing, our manscaping poll shows that women generally prefer a neat, trimmed look.. In general, it makes everything all the more visible and accessible and hey, it might even make you look a bit bigger.
The Main Atraction
Let’s start with the Ham and Eggs. My suggestion, as a starting point, would be to set your trimmer guide at around a #3 setting and trim anything you can reach. Going shorter is an option, but then you risk pinching skin, so you need to use a lot of extra care. Depending on your level of hairiness, some extra work might be in order. There isn’t much of a way to tip-toe around this one, so if you’ve got a hairy shaft… shave it off. Use a razor, as trimming in that area is not good enough. Nobody, man or woman, wants to end up with a mouthful of hair. If you want to get creative with your razor and do some more detailing, it’s up to you.
Ok, we’ve covered the magic wand, but if you want the make the situation more pleasant for your lady, you should also take care of the fruit basket. This takes extra care, but making them clean and smooth is a good option here and it makes them more “touch sensitive.”
The groin area for some guys may not be enough. If your thighs directly adjacent to your manhood are very hair, take that down a notch or shave it with your razor. You have taken care of the front, but what about the back? If there is just light peach fuzz, that’s probably ok, but a big hairy ass is not attractive so you might want to take the razor to that area as well. As for your legs, I would pretty much leave those alone unless you’re a professional cyclist, but like your arms, if there is extra density, you may want to think it out. This can be a pain in the ass and time consuming. Lastly, tops of feet. Extra hairy dudes should probably take this off. No one wants to see the top of your flip flop buried in a mound of hair.
The article was aimed at being neat and well groomed, but our poll does indicate a fair share of women like everything gone. If you are attached to a significant other, it’s worth asking their opinion on the subject before you do anything drastic.
I will give you some general shaving advice. Use a shave cream, not a thick foam or foaming gel. You want to be able to see what you are doing, so your view shouldn’t be obstructed by a bunch of shave foam. Take your time, and rinse your razor frequently.
