feeling embarrased naked after shavingReturn 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 also shave from head to knees pits included. My wife has asked me why my pits a couple of times and has just made a face. I've been shaving groin area for about 5+ years, the past few I started shaving my chest to knees including my pits and trim my arm hair. I trim the arm hair for a couple reasons, like others I don't feel like explaining why, second is as a truck mechanic when you get grease in the hair it's much easier to get out.
My question to fellow smoothies--- have you been asked or been called a Beta-Male due to your choice of grooming style? Living in a rural area I have been asked by my son why I do it. If we lived closer to the city I'm sure it'd be more acceptable.

Most times, people who use the terms; Beta-Male or Metrosexual, don't know what the hell they're talking about. Because a guy shaves off body hair doesn't make him weak or emasculated. Just because a guy takes interest in dcor doesn't make him weak or emasculated there's way too many people caught up in dividing genders into specific areas that they should like, dislike or being involved or interested in. It's the ol' "boys play with cars and girls play with dolls" argument. Men are so afraid if their son plays with dolls, he'll become gay. We have good friends that have a son that was one mean defensive tackle in HS. Later in college, he came out as gay. People are who they are. Playing certain roles in life do not make you who you are or who you become, sexually.
Metrosexual; a term that I've heard thrown at me by some older guys at the fire house when they noticed I didn't have pubic hair. The issue here is that they took the fact that I blow dried the hair on my head and shaved my pubic hair as a reason to label me Metrosexual. I don't have a particular interest in fashion or a refined sense of taste, unless it's Wine! I groomed like some of those that called me this name but took it further by blow drying the hair on my head and shaving my pubic hair. In neither case did those calling either of us this name, know what they were talking about.
When asked why I shaved my pubic hair, I was upfront and honest. "I/we I liked the look, it felt better AND sexually speaking; my wife and I tired of always pulling pubic hairs out of our mouths during oral sex." Once that was out on the table, the conversation turned to "yeah I hate that too," "sometimes it's like trying to cough up a hair ball...". Didn't change anything. I still shaved my pubic hair and blow dried my hair and they continued doing what they did but didn't give me any grief about it anymore. Later, as it became a trend, more and more guys, in fact, most of the guys I worked with shaved their pubic hair because their wives/girlfriends preferred it that way.
You have no reason to be embarrassed! Your wife should be, because other than looking great, better for your health also. The moistness you get down there lessens
when I shaved and it stopped causing fungus to flourish. Ill probably never go back to unshaven because Im proud of the way I look, and wish that I could go outside and show it off. Your wife should be happy for you! Its your life, your body, your crotch, your business! Be prou and dont worry about it!!!

When I started grooming my pubic hair 30 years ago (first 10 shaving, last 20 epilating), the only other shaved males I saw at nude beaches were a few gays. I was the only shaved straight male. At first I was apprehensive about being seen with such a different look at the nude beaches, but never received any negative comments, which allayed my fears of disapproval. Over the following four to five years I noticed a large increase of men shaving or trimming, to where it may have become the majority.
Earlier in life I had tried shaving occasionally but always felt self conscious even though I liked it.
More recently I had decided just to groom but was nervous about my doctor seeing me and what he may think even though I wasn't a fan of my bush.
Once I became comfortable with my nudism, I decided "who cares what others may think and shaved it all off. I really prefer the look but felt a bit self conscious my first time at the spa but it wore off quick. Several of the guys asked about my man-scaping , I would say I prefer it that way. It just feels better.
The razor is a bit scary so I started using my Whal. After a few nips of the scrotum I decided to trim with the shortest attachment. I still get the look and fee I like without any sensitive damage. Its quick and easy.
I don't think I will ever go back to the bush.
Free to be me!
I think wen on the beach more women seem be shaved than men in this country but I like see men shaven cos it makes them look bigger
I have not been to a nude beach in many years here in the U.S. When I was visiting regularly, even though more women were shaved than men, I was surprised to see so many men also shaved. By having lots of male co-conspirators I felt more comfortable being bare down there. When I first shaved (now epilator), I was self-conscious being the only male with a good pubic grooming habit.
I can relate to your situation. My wife is neither a nudist, nor shaved. I am 60 too and I have been shaving entire pubic area as well as ass and hole for a lkng time. My wife was shocked and asked why. All i said is i like it and it feels better shaved. She doesn't ask anymore. I have shaved my chest, but she cant stand it so i dont shave chest anymore as she doesn't like the pinch qhen we hug. Just tell her you like it and it feels better wben you wask and tan.
