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.

What is going on here?

There was a reply from JohnGW and one from me that stayed up for about 5 seconds?

Why are they no longer view-able, I didn't delete my response. Its a waste of time answering threads if the replies get removed.

Tell her you wanted to change things up a bit. You feel even MORE naked with out all the hair(I know I do).

Sign of the the times. I have a similar relationship, although I started by trimming a little at a time, until after 6 mths it had all gone. It wasn't the shock & surprise it could have been. Having said that, it's the best thing I have done nude in years, should have shaved 40 Yrs ago.

Obviously, I'm not you, so I don't know your wife, but could you not just tell the truth (or at least part of it)

You used to like the "fresh" feeling of being shaved, and you fancied feeling it again. It need not have any deeper meaning than that. You being embarrassed is probably a bigger issue

It is just sign of themodern man of the times, now there are just as many men who shave as are hairy, its hygenic,and esthetically nice so dont' be shy about being a smooth nudist you will feel much better to admit you like it!

just say "you just felt like it" or the neighbor requested it. Just kidding, just be honest with her, not embarrassed.

Some people come out with daft things like it is more''hygienic'' to shave, when there isn't any prof of this and, medical people say it is less hygienic as skin can be damaged in the shaving and let nasty bacteria in.

When I stripped naked in the village pub I had a long conversation with a young blond lady about my lack of body hair. It ended up with her wanting her husband to get a full body wax. Oddly those closest to us can give the most embarrassment when we do something new. We can be open with strangers but might hide things from friends and family. The only way is to take the plunge and reveal all! Then act naturally. There is nothing to be guilty about. It's easier in the long run. Otherwise they (she) can wonder what you are hiding. Here are some things you can say: It reminds you of your younger days when there was passion between you; Summer is coming, roughly 2/3 of men are shaved there (My beach surveys) and you thought you might get beach-ready. And ask her to help you - can she check the bits you can't reach (or see) like your back and shave them for you.

Since you had a long history of doing it years ago, I think I would explain that you had a wacky blast-from-the-past moment and decided to try it again. And I would be proactive bringing it up, not just slink guiltily and have her challenge you about it. My suspicion is that you feel you shouldnt be paying any attention to your private parts because you are no longer having inimate relations. but if being shaved feels good and you used to do it all the time, enjoy it. I think your wife is going to feel more uneasy if you are suddenly shy about being maked.
