I'm not trimmed or shaved anywhere other than from the neck up. The big issue for me to NOT shave or trim is that my wife doesn't like how stubbly and coarse my trimmed or shaved hair is in my pubic area. She doesn't like the way if feels while having sex. She says it irritates her. I do like that she's ok with me going all 70s pubes. It does make upkeep easier. I just wish she had the same attitude about the lawn.
Regardless, any ideas on how to trim/shave and keep the stubble or shorter hair from being so pokey (soft and supple)?
I shave because I enjoy oral sex. I hate picking hairs out of my mouth from either a man or woman. Since I dont like it I dont ask others to fight the hair so I keep it smooth. Im 72 and have shaved since I was in my early 20s. I also like the feel. I have completely shaved in the past but its gotten to be just to much work. And having it done is expensive.
For me, shaving my genital area is done for comfort. The comfort of the hairs not getting pulled or sweaty. It's a bonus that my wife likes them shaved smooth.
For a long time before I decided to shave, I was concerned that holding a sharp razor to that area could cause unwanted cuts. So for a long time I didn't shave. I didn't have as much hair as many other men nor was my hair thick or coarse. So, when I decided to shave, it was quite (and surprisingly to me) easy and very much pain free.
Now that I shave, it's an amazing feeling...especially when I have to wear pants (since I don't wear underwear).
Like most it's just a matter of personal preference. Being moderately hairy since puberty I've always hated my body hair and am somewhat self conscious about it. I just love the feeling and looks of being shaved and trimmed. If I had someone nearby to help I'd shave my entire body.
