  • no method of hair removal effective!

    Hi, first time posting, I wanted to ask a question here I would be too embarrased to ask my friends or family. It's summer and of course that means baring my bikini line and maybe some "summer loving" as well. But I'm finding that if I shave my pubic hair, I get red bumps and it only shaves down to the stubble (even using a new razor, shaving cream and "bump eraser") so I tried using hair removal cream which I use on my legs, but it didn't get everything and I ended up shaving again, with more irriation. I tried waxing today and it got rid of the hair on my bikini line quite well, only it made me so sore and irritated my skin so much that using aloe vera on it and wearing underwear hurt! Should I just give up and just keep it trimmed? I know it's just as healthy but is it a complete turn off for guys?

  • Keeping it trimmed is totally fine!
    I mean, as long as you are clean and tidy, it's okay!

    Shaving there completely irritates the area for me as well. I only trim now.

    • Hello there
      Welcome to the forum
      If waxing irritates your skin then rather stick to trimming and if your main concern is if it'll turn off guys then i must tell you that it certainly wouldnt worry most of them.

      I know some men who dont like it when women shave or wax down there and some that do, it comes down to preference but do whats comfortable to you.
