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.

Don't be embarrassed by your personal preference to be shaved. Your ... um "sack" can be done daily with a good quality razor before getting into the shower. Again, be happy! :-)

I do mine AFTER getting in the shower and washing everything first. After it has all been soaped up and rinsed off, the hairs are softer and easier to shave closely, and all the short hairs just go down the drain. Then just another quick rinse off, and get out to dry off.

I see no reason to be embarrassed to shave down there, each to their own. I use too shave almost all the time down there but got tired of shaving. So now I just keep it trim down there.

RE:feeling embarrased naked after shaving

At the weekend we finally got round to giving me a trim. Mar did a cracking job but it took quite a while as (a) we only had scissors and (b) I'm a gorilla.

We only managed to do my chest (biggest job by far) and my groin. For the rest of the day it felt odd, with the hairs catching the shirt etc when we dressed to go out.

However, I must say that the look is lovely, gone is the mess and replaced by tidy. It also feels much nicer.

we have now bought a proper body groomer for me, and the next step will be the shave my back, another big job. I can't wait as my back hairs have always tickled / annoyed me.

We both wish we'd done this years ago.

If you are going to go for a full body shave, then you will feel even MORE nude than you did before with all the hair. Wearing clothes(ugh) will feel different too.

When I shaved my balls and cock---my wife went ballistic---was very upset---suggested that I was weird, etc. BUT I told her that I liked the way it looked and felt---and continued to shave----NOT the pubic hair though I do "thin it" on occasion. Well, after a few months---I was delighted to see that she was trimming her bush! All is well that ends well!!!

I think that some people just don't like change, but usually with all things they get used to it. I'm glad that she's joined in.

Mar was always up for me grooming. We've been talking about it for years but never got on with it. I thought that because whenever I mentioned it she was passive that she didn't really want it and she thought that because I never got on with it I didn't really want it.

Now, about once a week Mar gives me a trim, chest, back and arm pits, and I shave my groin area every 3 or 4 days. We both think that I look much better, tidier, and I feel loads better. My back hairs don't itch any more and being smooth downstairs makes me feel so much fresher, cleaner, better.

I've never really been bothered about my body, but now I definitely feel better. We both just wish we'd done it years ago. If anyone else is dithering, I say go for it.

The first time I shaved off my pubes was before I was really into nudity. I did a fundraiser on an army obstacle course with work mates. It was very uncommon for men to shave their pubes in those days. I was very embarrassed in the gang shower afterwards. Of course it's quite different these days. First I'm much more used to being seen naked and second so many men shave their pubes. So no problem!

I generally keep my chest, shoulders and pubes trimmed and get my back waxed occasionally. I work out, shower and sauna at a university gym, where I am as old as some undergrads grandparents. I guess I was a little self conscious the first few times after I started trimming but never was truly embarassed. Now I don't think of it. The guys in the sauna are always willing to chat, nobody ever mentions anything about anybody's state of hair, and that includes the modest foreign students. I shared a shower with a guy the last visit who was shaved. He noticed me, I looked back and sort of shrugged. It is definitely the exception but nobody regards it as bad.

Say, it's been 6 months since your post requesting suggestions on how to tell your wife, etc. Can you give us an update? Would love to know what you told her and how things played out.
