feeling embarrased naked after shaving

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 have been shaving recently and it feels so much better I like the clean look and feeling maybe you enjoy it too and that's the subconscious reason you did it I don't know just a suggestion

There no need to feel embarrassed about shaving! I have been shaving my pubic area for the last 25 or so years and loved it!! Then one day got the idea of shaving my legs also love the feeling, then about 3 years ago I started shaving from the neck down and the fresh clean feeling I had and still have is great!! My wife also told me why would you do that? I just told her my body not yours!! She hasn't said anything else to my about my shaving since!! I'm 68 years old!!!

I used to trim with my beard trimmer, gradually took off more and more but left it short in previous years. My wife didn't say much at all. This year I have taken it all off she has not said anything, I think she likes it but hasn't said anything, yet. I was a little unsure initially but now I feel fine and am happy wandering naked around our home in my hair free state. I think being fitter, more toned and tanned this year it looks good.

Understand the feeling of being unsure the first time you reveal yourself to your significant other but not guilty or embarrassed, it's your body.

I'd say 'I fancied a change' just like when you have your hair done, 'I had my shaved off.'

If asked, tell her you shaved because you wanted to. Just like your face if you sport a beard for a period of time. You wanted change. Don't feel embarrassed or like you have to explain any further. You didn't do anything wrong or any different than other people who shave or trim their pubic hair.

I am 53 years old and have been shaving or waxing my body for years. When I first started my wife thought that I was having an affair. Ridiculous right. I explained that as I got older certain things like body hair became annoying. I also reallyh love the look and feel of my shaved body. She understood.

Have confidence in yourself and your body choices. Whether you shave, get tattoos, body piercings, or whatever, I'm sure that you look beautiful.

Rather than feeling embarrassed about shaving, I think an easier approach would be to be excited about it. Our partners often like us to have passion, even though theyre not always appreciative of the details on how the passion is directed. Good luck!

Love the feeling of a nice shave, feeling so much better with the air getting to it.

I guess it's the trend to be shaved, both female and male. Personally I like the feeling of being shaved and like the look for me, like the look on women too. Reckon the shaved look may go back to porn from the 90's early 2000's.

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.
