I've read many posts where the guy says he wouldn't mind trying it but couldn't explain it to his wife/SO.
Obviously for those that have done it for years it's not an issue but not everyone is in that situation.
I wouldn't have bothered trying to explain it when I was married. It just wouldn't have happened. Now I keep it closely trimmed (I don't shave it) and anyone that sees me doesn't know there was ever a difference.
this had come up before, and I think the best excuse (if you work out at a gym anyways), is to say that all the guys there have been getting their junk trimmed, and you didn't want to look like old man time when you were in the shower with them.
Another gambit is to tell the SO that you have suffered some jock itch, and your doctor recommended trimming to reduce the amount of bacteria available. That actually worked for me once I started to trim.
Good to know that many of you have been manscaping for a long time anyway.
I thought of another way to do it, but it has to be before you 'scape it. Find a men's magazine that has an article on it (many do), and show it to your wife or SO, then mention you'd like to try it. She may even want to help.
There's lots of info about how guys like girls to groom but not a whole lot of feedback going the other way. So what are ladies grooming preferences for guys? How far back/up/around how short the not shaved bits and so forth? Does it vary depending on how much hair they have naturally?
but you'd think that before going out and hiring a divorce lawyer, she might have suggested that he do some manscapping to save their marriage.
In any case, if only I had suspected, I would have taken a razor to my crotch back when I was married.
As it was, it wasn't until after I got divorced that some gals began to gently hint that if only I would clear out some of the brush below, they would be much obliged. I did, and then I got much obliged.
Now I'm into the whole waxing thing.
Odd how I have gone from one extreme to the other.
It seems like basically, if we want it licked, we should shave it, whatever it might be.
In that case I think I'm okay. I shave my balls the area behind them and the base of my shaft as well as trimming the rest of it. I've not done anything round the back because I'm not sure how, but that doesn't sound like it's a problem because rimming isn't a thing for me.
It seems like ladies have different considerations to guys. I mean that, although women being shaved or hairless is better for DATY as well as feeling nicer to the touch, there are also aesthetic considerations, some guys like the look of landing strips etc.
Is it purely mechanical and not aesthetic because you're working? I hope this isn't too personal a question but in your personal life, is it the same?
I completely agree with SoftlySarah. In my opinion; a male's personal area doesn't have to be bare, but trimmed is always nice. I like clean shaved balls too, and It's usually a bonus. In my experience, most men who have their balls shaved enjoy having them licked, sucked, or even played with. If you like these things it's a good thing to shave your balls because it's a clear sign to your provider that you are interested, or she'll be more comfortable.
Posted By: SoftlySarah it is nice when they are at least trimmed up and maybe have completely shaved testicles.
There was a thread about this pretty recently. I can't remember where!
