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

      It was an Opinion Of The (Elected) Attorney General, Ken Paxton, that under Texas Law the elements of care for a Trans child COULD constitute child endangerment and abuse and advised the Governor it was legal to investigate it as child abuse.  The opinion was requested by Abbot.   The Department of Child Protection is an Executive Department of the state, which falls under the Governor's executive authority to direct and give orders to.  I worked for a department of that nature in my State for 30 years where luckily our Governor was bright enough not to interfere in that way, but while the person in this article was  a Civil Service System person who is immune to the Governor's whims on employment, the department head was "owing" (a job to which the governor can appoint people outside the normal Civil Service system) to the governor for their job, and jumped without asking how high.  Under Civil Service, the orders of your department head do rule your life as a State / County employee and you do try to act fairly for the citizens you work for by your own oath of office.  You could be fired for refusing the order of your boss, but it would take a special process and would involve review of your work for more than the single refusal to perform an order.    I was a State supervisor and know the Texas system in general since it follows the Pendleton Act structure of Federal Civil Service Law although even there they could fudge on some parts and make it rougher on the employee.  One of my biggest problems as a Supervisor though was to rein in what some of my people considered to be an order to go out and rough up the citizenry which did more harm than good.  I applaud the decision of the worker here.

      They don't believe trans really exists (just like they believe being gay is a choice), and therefore, in their warped minds, all trans kids must be a matter of the parent forcing them to transition.   With that crowd, it's all about deciding what you want to believe first (ie "trans isn't real"), and then inventing whatever story it takes to explain what they've already decided to believe.
    • KathyLauren
      I am no expert.  But my understanding is that it is certainly not a law, and I don't believe it is an official executive order.  It is just an opinion of the governor about how existing law should be interpreted.  There may be a fine line between an opinion and an order, but I haven't heard anyone use the term "executive order".

      Has anyone else been, asked to participate in the survey on transition that the VA sent out last week?   I completed the survey and was overly excited about the questions asked and the information that they are seeking from transitioning Vets. There were questions about the types of surgeries and treatments that we would like to have done as well as if the VA should pay the full expense or if we would accept out-of-pocket expenses on our own. If you happen to get the survey in the mail or e-mail, please take the time to fill it out. I believe that this information will help all of us in the future. It only took about 15 min, and they offer a $15 gift card for your time, or you can have the money donated to a VA trans support organization.

      @awkward-yet-sweetYou make an excellent point, and one I'm sure applies in all states.    I'm confused about something in the article, though and would appreciate some answers if anyone knows. THe article refers to governor Abbot's "order" as opposed to Texas law. My question is thus: is this actual TX law, or is it an executive order by the governor? Make no mistake, it's wrong either way; I mean who in their right mind would assume that trans children all live in abusive homes that require investigation? The question of law v. executive order raises raises more issues, though. Such as if it's state law, it can be challenged as unconstitutional federally. If it's an executive order, it can be challenged at both state and federal level as the executive branch cannot make laws, merely enforce them.    IMHO, this whole thing stinks to high heaven and the only hero in it is the worker who resigned in protest. What a mess.

      People need to know an essential truth:. You don't have to open the door and talk to CPS/DFS or any other flavor if "child police.". I don't believe all people who work for those departments are bad...some do it for the right reasons like the man in this article.  But if in doubt, tell them to get off your property.  In the USA, the 4th Amendment protects against warrantless searches, and the 5th Amendment protects against self-incrimination.     FWIW - in my county, if a state employee shows up to bother, we can call the sheriff for help.  The sheriff is quite proactive about dealing with that sort of stuff.  Hopefully other sheriffs around the nation will do likewise.

      I read that story elsewhere.  He was brave for trying to work within the system but in the end it failed him and all the parents being investigated.

      That's great Hannah, I hope you find that most of your longtime friends are accepting you for who you truly are.    That's right Lizzy, his loss and our gain.   Good morning everyone,   I've been away on vacation at a Bluegrass Festival, camping with friends and family. It went well and no one questioned my more androgynous presentation. I also played the upright bass, in a jam session at a campsite down the hill from us. I may have found another focus for may ADHD list of hobbies. Oh look! A fire truck!   Hugs for everyone, Coffee or Not.   Mindy🐛🏳️‍⚧️🦋
