feeling embarrased naked after shaving

Return to Discussions

Hoping someone may have some suggestions regarding an embarrassing situation I find myself in with my wife - having just totally shaved myself recently - down there. Felt it would make me look younger for various reasons. it's now a weird situation in the sense that i think i may now feel more embarrassed my wife seeing me totally naked than anyone else in the world seeing me naked. anyone I know face to face I mean. My imagination got a bit wild lay in the bath one morning and I shaved myself completely in the hot tub. The problem now is that the only one time i went from being hairy to bare before was over 25 years ago when I shaved completely for a vasectomy operation. I remained fully shaved for many many years, but when my wife and I ceased having an intimate relationship, I let my hair grow again. We still get on OK, and we share the same house - only seperate bedrooms now. I still walked through her bedroom naked every morning though to use the en suite bath. But the day I shaved myself she came upstairs to make her bed. Usually I would help her change the sheets even when I am naked. But that morning i came out of the bathroom all sheepish and guilty looking and hid myself behind the wet towel I said needed washing and nipped quickly into my bedroom to put on a dressing gown - which she knows i never wear when we are alone in the house upstairs. Then I helped her make the bed. I have avoided her seeing me naked ever since because I know she will want to know exactly why at the age of almost 60 that I have suddenly decided to shave myself once again. Hope someone will suggest some good plausible reason I can give her, when I feel ready to.

I find that if I trim close the hairs don't bother me when they grow. In the past I've shaved clean but felt irritated by the hair growing back. Maybe I should have been more regular with daily shaving.

Yes, you need to keep it shaved to avoid the irritation in most cases. Just need to figure out how long it has to grow after shaving to know how long you can go between shaves. If it was to start, let's say 4 days after shaving, then shave every 3rd day to prevent that.

Yes we certainly look younger, basically pre-pubescent. However I'm shaved and enjoy it, my wife is not, just trimmed. It's a personal preference. I had been trimming shorter and shorter for a few years then one day went the whole way. I just like the way it feels as well as looks. If I had to explain it, and I haven't, I would just say that I like the feel and the look especially with a good tan over the summer.

At local CO beaches here over the summer I would guesstimate that around 80% were shaved, maybe more. It is less frequent in change rooms at the swimming pools I use. That may indicate that we nudists prefer the fully nude look. However I have a feeling that it's a cycle and in 5-10 years or so we may all have reverted to the natural look, but that's just my theory.

would you know what percentage of naturist women and girls shave themselves sir - from what I have seen on my local naturist beach it is mainly older women that appear shavenIn the interest of scientific research I did some surveys on big nudist beaches. (Arduous but someone has to do it!) For each survey I observed a sample of at least 1000 men and 1000 women. The results were consistent. Over 90% of women and around 2/3 of men had no pubic hair. The absence of pubic hair ranged across all ages and body-types.

would say that these figures are very much correct! Same experiences over here in Europe.

from my experience of naturist beaches over many years in the UK at least, I would agree with steve that at least 80% of woman are now fully shaven, and far more young women like sarah seem to like shaving these days. I have noticed that some have even shaved themselves openly in the showers of family changing rooms at campsites. I think probably more men tend to keep themselves well trimmed like myself, rather than fully shaved

I tried shaving and gave it up. I am happy with my natural bushy pubic hair which let it grow back its natural bushy state.

So you shaved, get over it. would you feel the same if you shaved off your beard, no. Guess what it grows back if she does not like it. I shaved as well because I was told it would be cooler in the hot days. Personally I did not like my shaved chest so I let that grow back. As for the rest, I love it. Only problem is I can not do a good job. top area is shaved when I shower but to run a razor around my balls is very scary. I live in Mexico now and none of my friends here are nudist so not able to ask for help with shaving. Do not even think about waxing, noway nope not going to happen.

I often times do a full body shave to remove body hair. I prefer being shaved whenever I can. I not longer feel embarrassed.

Good, you should never feel embarrassed. I shave often, not fond of body hair.
