    I have been using the Braun Silk-Úpil epilator for years and love the results! I am now about 95% permanently smooth. It looks better, feels better, and makes for better sex.
    Does it cause any problems with ingrown hairs? I've always wanted to try an epilator but thought it would be way too painful to use on pubes.

      Early in my use of the Cleancut device, I managed to cause a few nicks, especially on my penis and scrotum. After a couple of these mistakes, I learned that to prevent this from happening, it was better to use a ‘dabbing’ technique rather than a ‘stroking’ motion. Since then I have had no problems.

      If you don’t have the opportunity to groom every day or you need to deal with longer hairs, as Brian has mentioned, the best procedure is to use a grooming tool such as the Philips “Bodygroom” to remove longer hairs and to finish off with the Cleancut.

      Another advantage of the Cleancut is that replacement blade-and-foil kits are readily available.

      Car_01,
      I would agree. I reckon the use of an epilator around the sensitive parts of my body would not be worth the risk.

        I use a Braun epilator on base of penis and balls and have no problem with ingrown hairs, but I have to go very slow to avoid catching the skin, it's ok where the skin is smooth but aroun the balls where the skin is wrinkly you can nick the skin which can be painful.

        I also use it on my neck and shoulders ok but had to give up on my chest around nipples as I couldn't stop the ingrown hairs.

        Its amazing as teenagers we can't wait to start shaving and growing chest hair and as we get older hair growth goes wild and we want to get rid of it.

          Pommie et all,

          My ex was an esthetician, which meant I was her guinea pig. She liked my chest bare, and would wax me regularly. Regarding folliculitis, it takes a few (4-8) waxes before that goes away, and with each wax it becomes less and less. The hair actually grows in thinner and sparser, and there is minimal/no itch like after shaving. After about 10 waxes, I would only have to do it once every few weeks and my chest was always bare. Seems like a much easier solution than shaving daily, although there is an initial investment of time.

            Body Groom is what I use too, and have wondered what it would be like to do much more of my body with it. Just haven't got round to experimenting that far, and preparing mrs. a for a new look on me!! Thanks for sharing your experience and encouragement.

            the more hairless skin to skin contact the more and better male/female energies exchanging/sharing contact points get ACTIVE all

              I rarely have problems with ingrown hairs. Using a fine-grained pumice stone can exfoliate the area and reduce the likelihood of that. But even without that I rarely have a problem with ingrown hairs. And I love the silky smooth results!

                For any of you into ultimate smoothness in the pubic region, I have just started a new Yahoo group, "Pubic Pluckers and Waxers". Yahoo! Groups. If you are interested, please check it out!

                  Wuerstchen,

                  Using your hyperlink above requires that I have a Yahoo User ID and password.

                  I don't have either! Does one have to join that club?

                    To access the group and read posts other than those on the home page you do have to join. But it costs nothing. There's nothing to it.

                      There was an article on "The Daily Beast" a couple of days ago about the trend toward hairlessness in males. Here's the link: http://www.thedailybeast.com/article...-t-just-for-p\
                      orn-stars-anymore.html

                      Since I have been plucking (with tweezers and an epilator) for years, it's the first time in my life I have felt I belonged to the avant-garde!

                        For some reason the link doesn't work from here. If you are interested, just google "manscaping daily beast" and it will take you to the article.

                          @Wuerstchen,

                          I don't know why but sometimes when one attempts to post a link to an external site the link text gets corrupted, it is best to check and test the link from the "Preview Post" view prior to actually making the post. This will cut down on the incidences of faulty links being posted. Here is the functioning link to your referenced article Why 'Manscaping' Isn't Just for Porn Stars Anymore.

                          It should be noted that some site linkages require "Cookies" to be enabled or other permissions in order to view the linked material.

                            I did laser hair removal and it worked great. Much less painful than waxing and it's permanent. Best result require white skin and dark hair. Took 8 sessions at $65 a session. I love it.

                                Have you guys ever tried sugaring?
                                It is very easy, inexpensive, and lasts a long time.
                                It also leaves your skin very smooth and soft. Very easy to clean up since sugar dissolves easily in water.
                                Also very easy to remove hair in those places you cannot see, like between scrotum and anus and beyond. Also great for the nipple area.
