My late wife liked me to trim her to a landing strip. She said that having some hair, just about 3 inches long and under an inch wide made her feel more feminine than shaved.
I always attended to my own, trim close, shave sac, shaft and armpits.
I started shaving the wife years ago when she would ask me to check her legs for spots she missed while in the bath. The legs led to the bikini trim and then once I just kept going and took it all off. I really didn't know what I was doing. I used the razor on her entire untrimmed pubic area and that was the wrong thing to do. It caused lots of itching and discomfort. I think now I have figured it out . I would not let her shave me, she is way too careless.
I helped my wife shave when she was pregnant with each of our kids. She was always tidy and when she gave birth, each of the kids came into a hairless world. Since then she has had laser and this has made the job much easier. She has also helped me on occasion, but I am pretty good at shaving as I have been doing it most of my adult life.
Several years ago I had a coronary angiogram procedure done at the local hospital. At that time, I was shaving myself quite regularly. Just so happened that I had shaved the night before the procedure, not really knowing what to expect. After I was checked in and given instructions to strip completely and given a gown to put on, I laid in bed as the nurse took my vitals and asked me tons of medical questions.
She left momentarily and return with a small tray and said, "I need to shave you around your groin for this procedure." She pulled back and sheet and gown and I watched as her eyes grew larger and she looked at me and said, "Wow, you already did that for me and you did a great job!" I said, "it's that way all the time." She said, "we should have you doing this procedure on patients. You really do a great job!"
As I was being transferred from hospital bed to surgical table, the cardiologist doing the procedure said, "I hear you did a great job of prepping the area we needed hair free." I said, "yup ... gets done like brushing my teeth and brushing my hair!" He chuckled and the gave me the sleep meds and off to sleep land I went!
I've gone to waxing nowadays and I prefer that over shaving. My wife is still hesitant about joining me so I continue to shave her every couple of days.
Andy or anyone else with experience , have you considered laser or electrolysis over waxing? Im very fair skinned and very blonde, I went it to see about laser and was told I wasnt a good candidate. Apparently laser works best on darker hair. But they did suggest electrolysis which I have an consultation appointment next week. Just checking for other points of view...
