Should I Shave Pubic Hair
Should I shave my pubic hair? I shaved my butt hair recently and wondered whether or not to shave it. Is there any benefit to keeping it?
Hair is fine: There is no need to shave pubic hair. The more people who shave their pubic hair, the more pressure there will be upon other people to also shave their pubic hair. Since there is nothing inherently abnormal about pubic hair, there is no reason to shave pubic hair. It's just fashion. If one is a teen, he has many other more important things to do, so pubic hair should not be an issue.

Pubic Hair: A safety razor can be used to shave the hair over the mons pubis. Don't know your gender. Don't try to shave penis or vagina. Hair is usually coarse in pubic area- that isn't abnormal. (so - would try not to see it as abnormal).
Shaving: Insure you use fresh, sharp blades vice dull blades. If hair is > several mm long – then trim before shaving. Wash area before shaving – warm water helps to soften hair. Use a lubricant when shaving. Avoid using products that contain alcohol or are scented. Shave in direction of the hair – not against it. Be gentle when shaving – don’t push down too hard. Moisturize skin after shaving.
Shaving gels are: Best, and single blades are best. Make sure skin is heated with steam as in shower, and pores are open
