Alternative to shaving?

Alternative to shaving?

Heya, been a long time since I’ve been around these parts. First off, yes I did use the search function :) . I came across this thread and read it entirely Shave .

I read about waxing and tweezing as the main alternatives, I’d like to get some further input on how this works (rather than just a vote on who does what). I have been shaving for many years but I really just don’t like how long it lasts and how it can irritate my skin. I shave in the shower which helps prevent any infection and reduces irritation as much as possible, but I’m not satisfied. Stubbles seem to grow back by the next morning, and shaving back to back would kill my skin.

On another note, I hate shaving all together, whether it be my face or my penis (I use a different blade for each if it matters). Besides the fact I look better a bit scruffy (as opposed to clean shaven).

So I ask the question, what are some good alternatives to shaving with a razor (for both my face and penis)? I would prefer something that doesn’t take heaps of time. Perhaps an electric razor for my face? What about the groin area? Thank you very much.

Lasering, but it depends on numerous factors like how light-skinned you are and how dark haired for absolute best effectiveness. The lighter your skin and the darker the hair, all the better. Of course you are looking at least three, maybe as low as two treatments, if you are UTTERLY LUCKY, which is the exception. It should be way less painful than waxing and faster too. Hair grows in stages and the laser only gets the hair in a certain stage. It is all explained here way better than I could.

Personally, I was going to get my neck done for all of this cause of the ingrown hairs and razor bumps.

Depending where you live, if you have a large metro area, you can find deals on the lasering. Usually they run them in either the local paper or the supposed hip city free paper that seems to exist in every damn metro area.

Here is a local one (well at least offices within 20 miles of me living in NJ) that advertised in the CITY PAPER of Philadelphia.

Waxing for a male can result in bruising of the following areas, depending on how far one wants to go:
Shaft, scrotum, taint (it isn’t the balls or the ass, but in-between), and the inside of your ass crack. Personally, bring 3 or 4 percocets with you if you get it done. You will need them.

Personally, make sure you want this hair gone before you get it lasered. Worst case scenario, find someone to wax said areas before getting it permanently removed. See if you like it FIRST AS A LOOK, otherwise you will need a pubic wig (which actually existed).;)

I’ve called a couple of Laser places and they wont do male genitals, even just the bottom shaft area and around the base. Is this response common?

Depends again… some places will some places won’t. I even heard of male salons in the Super Philadelphia gayborhood who always refuse to wax a guy anywhere near his nads. Some places seem to really push it, others don’t want to touch it with a ten foot pole. Someone within 120 miles will do it for sure.

This personal trimmer works great for body hair! I got one and use it mostly on my balls/groin area and my chest. No cuts what so ever! This personal trimmer rocks

I use an electric shaver as well, I use it every other day and it works great no irritation at all. I use scissors to trim the rest of the hair but as long as you keep with it and don’t let the hair grow too long an electric rasor is a great investment!

A few years ago the ‘Back, Crack and Sack’ wax was big business in London, but now few places advertise it. In my part of the UK nowhere would ever think of offering such a service!

I’ve tried lots of alternatives, but always go back to shaving.

Critter, try the ‘Similar Threads’ at the bottom of this page.

If you don’t want the irritation of shaving daily, then waxing is a decent alternative because it lasts for 4-6 weeks.

They are correct though, it does hurt. Like all other things that make us say ouch, we can become accustomed to it after a few times. I’ve found that the surgi-cream brazillian wax that comes with an oil to be rubbed on the skin first works best for me. The oil keeps the wax from sticking to the skin but it still grabs the hair and yanks it right out. By not sticking to the skin, the process isn’t as rough on the skin as the hot wax/cheesecloth method.

After Christmas I’m going to get myself a micro screen personal shaver and see how it works to simply buzz the balls first thing every morning.

Shit, I just use a cream hair remover, then put Bikini Zone on after to avoid the red bumps. Works like a charm!

*I measure PRE-WORKOUT, normal erection* Started: 7 EBP x 4.9 EG. Several years on and off PE, now 8.125 EBP length x 5.5 EG midshaft (5.8 base). Working on girth (clamping) again after breaks due to injuries - fast recent gains! Pics

Why has no one sung the praises of tweezing? The initial session hurts like hell, but if you approach it sensibly, i.e. do it after a shower or bath (when the follicles are soft) and don’t try to do too much in one session, it really is an excellent solution. If you persist with it over a lengthy period of time you should notice a gradual decline in rate of re-growth and a thinning of the hair that does return. Certainly a regular maintenence programme involves minimal effort (and pain) provided you start this quickly after the initial plucking session. Once you get used to it, it actually becomes quite addicitve in a strange sort of way.

I got tired of tweezing my dick shaft and started epillating. Waxing is far more brutal and about half as effective as the epillator.

If girth is king, why the hell does everyone keep talking about length?

Tweezing just takes so long compared to shaving. The results are excellent, but I get a great result shaving and it’s quicker.

I second this, it works great and gets near as close as a blade with no irritation.
