Shaving down there

Just wondering if any of you fine ladies have tips for shaving down there. He is not the problem it's his two little brothers I don't know about. Also curious about the back side. Any tips or suggestions would be appreciated. Hugs Amber

I have had to prep twice for surgery at this point. While the procedure didn't require an electrologist i had to shave. This was a bit difficult with all the blood thinners i'm talking for a heart condition. I used the pop up trimmer designed for sideburns to start weed wacking. Then carefully used the electric razor as normal. Unfortunately i may have to prep again as the surgery has been canceled for health reasons in the past and i'm working towards another attempt.

Hugs,

Electric trimmer down to stubble then shaving with a multi blade razor with one of those lotion strips is the way to go. Skip the shave cream, it's not actually necessary in this instance and just makes things too slippery. Pretty much impossible to cut yourself surprisingly - just go slow. I would strongly recommend against using an electric razor down there. Personal experience says it easily becomes painful.

As for the rear end, that's a bit more problematic. If you're like me there are simply placed a razor cannot go. I just try not to think about it and know no one will be looking there anyway.

wow now this takes me back to an awkward conversation I had with my mother years ago. I had mentioned that I nicked my leg twice while shaving . She says " well wait until you nick your hind end that sucks a whole lot worse " i just looked at her like :huh:. she goes " uuuh, women have to shave their crack too " there was more to it but I will spare you the details . It was however one of those " Wow, you just can't learn this kind of sh!t in books " moments lol

When you first start shaving that area you may notice irritation . it happens as that area is not used to seeing a razor. My mom was a life saver there too . Applying sea salt after shaving that area prevents razor rash. other than that go slow and be careful.

Hello Amber,

Yeah... Touchy subject. I'll say firstly that it will take getting used to like every other "fine detail" in life. I hate body hair, and began shaving all of it when I was 23.

As previously stated, definitely the trimmer to thin things out. I do use a multi blade razor, but a mens razor with womens shave gel. I find the womens name brand lathers the best giving a very clean shave. How you manage the skin will take practice as well.

As far as the other side, while no one may be looking... It feels better to me. My suggestion is wash really well... And squat. It will take a lot of slow care the first time, but after, it's much easier. Shave from ummm... In to out... If you catch my meaning. Obviously... This os a "do it by feel scenario, and the tortoise wins the race.

Good luck dear,

Kay

Actual Women's razors can tolerate the "curves and crevices" a bit better that the men's face butchers. Very tiny amounts of the women's aloe gel help with lubing the skin. A pair of blunt nosed baby scissors can work as well as the trimmer on an electric razor, but even they can pinch, so be careful. The salt water wash off is a good tip to prevent razor rash, but some aloe and cortisone creams help as well.

Having had to clear the area prior to surgery two years ago, my observation simply is that it is not the brush clearing that is nearly as big a problem as growing it back at the same time as your are healing from other things in the area. Take good care and avoid jock itch.

I'll have to look into this ... I remember shaving at my ex's grandparents apartment and using some sort of electric razor (yes razor, not shaver), and it lubricated the area with each stroke. it felt so good doing it I was surprised it even shaved my hairs!

I'm not sure if laser for the nether region is possible ... or even practical. I'd assume that you can get the back, but the laser might disrupt your unit if you still have one. comes back to haunt us, doesn't it?

Good luck, I'm curious as to what happens; keep me posted? :)

God Bless

What if I find that area to be so repulsive that anything that touches anywhere near it has to either be scrubbed thoroughly or thrown away? I can't use the electric razor I have. Not that I even need to be in this post...

Much more time consuming but I do a lot of plucking down there (as well as shaving immediate surrounding areas). As I said - time consuming - but it does result in less irritation and after a while the pain isn't a problem.

I shave 'down there' with an electric razer because there is less chance of a horrible cut. Plus theinner thie are because a blade razor makes them 'break out'...

Be really flexible, because you're going to have to turn and twist in all kinds of weird ways.

Go slow, rinse the razor often. Also keep up with it. Pubic hair is more curly so there is a greater chance of ingrown hairs down there (and those hurt!) Apparently (according to a friend, I haven't tested this out myself) if you shave that area regularly, then there's less of a chance of ingrown hairs.

Vicky pointed out a problem i have noticed as well after surgical prep. Within a week or so the itches start and it can be quite uncomfortable. I have started to maintain a bikini line and if i keep it up there is no itching. It is like seeing myself asa child after a complete shave but i would never do it unless i was prepping for surgery or had an extremely hot date that i just don't foresee.

Hugs,

Charlize

      You have only a single post here, it takes five posts to open up certain features.  When you get the five, you do it from a link on your Profile page.  I do not really know about phones and how to navigate them.  @Petra Jane is our computer guru.

      My life story is pretty odd.  Never had a relationship until my mid 20's.  Now I'm in my early 30's and I live in a committed relationship with multiple partners.  Growing up, my family had a lot of expectations for me that I was never able to meet.  I guess I'm going through the questioning I should have been able to do more freely earlier in my life.  So that's why I'm here...trying to make some sense out of my feelings, my body, and my relationships.

      Willow, I will always keep an old fashion stovetop coffee percolator. I have two at home, and one in the camper. I may be without gas or electric, but I’ll never be without a functioning coffee maker.

      Understanding that, since I don't necessarily have that much time left on this rock, I need to live it as me. Put to music, "I enjoy being a girl," and "I gotta be me. I gotta be me. What else can I be but what I am."

      Hi, meeting with another lawyer tomorrow.  We’ll see how that goes.  Our daughter is also supposed to be coming here to a campground for the weekend.  We’ll see if she makes any contact with us.   Kymmie, I don’t know what to say.  I’ve been through similar things as well.  I never know what she is thinking.  It’s ok, then it’s not ok.  I hope your sons birthday goes well.  Our sons birthday is the 29th.   Jandi, we are using a very basic coffee maker.  Put water in, put a pod in and press start.  One cup at a time.  And if we are away from the dock I have a percolator.  Old school!  I have used Folgers and Maxwell House. But not instant coffee!     Willow

      In a true homage to reading other peoples experiences and taking notes (thank you Kelly(particularly) but also et al) I have over the last couple of of days ‘come out’ to my business. I am a senior manager at company employing 1.5k, with a team of 22 that are my directs I had spoken to my Md some weeks ago about my transitioning, how it was early days, and tbh, soft soaped her about how wonderful it was to be working in a company that, whilst I knew it was going to be difficult, was forward thinking enough to be able embrace and (be seen to be able to) empower members of the lgbt community . She was keen to manage my becoming visible across the business, however I thought it was right that I should personally ‘come out’ to especially my team, but also my closest colleagues. We agreed that as soon as I started telling people, the likelihood of gossip (and therefore our ability to curtail the ‘ridicule factor’) would increase. So over the space of Tuesday afternoon and the whole of Wednesday (which was also the day my name officially changed to Dee (yeah..not Alice…long story)) I was allocated an interview room and ‘came out’ on an individual basis to 36 people - in an order that I had created on a scale of ‘can be trusted to keep their mouth shut (and thumbs off their keypad) to ‘gossip-monger in chief’ - just prior to a meeting at 4pm where the MD would announce my transition and explain to all the other senior managers what was expected of them in relation to ensuring respect from their respective teams etc.   I can happily report that (with the exception of 2 morons(whose life will henceforth be made a misery)), I received support, intelligent questions, generosity and predominately respect for the guts it takes not only to decide that you need to take control of where your life is heading, but also to look people in the eye and say ‘I didn’t want you to hear this from someone else’ (It also gives you the opportunity to mould their mindset in respect of ‘seeker of peace and happiness’ vs ‘deviant’)   Dont be afraid of this once you are sure , whilst it was emotionally exhausting bearing my soul (because you do have to to every question they ask), I staggered out of work last night with a refreshed view of the majority of peoples acceptance and enthusiasm to accept something ‘a bit different’ I get that it is early days with this situation in the workplace, but I have come out of it with a truly positive mindset.   Thanks for the inspiration ladies😊❤️😊❤️

      Honestly, food and coffee, sometimes tea. Mostly I'm just stubborn but lost a lot over time and finding it harder.
