    Is there an alternative to shaving (and not waxing!) the pubic area? I hate shaving, and dont wanna grow the pubic hair. I would like to know if there are any other products for hair removal.:confused:

    Duuude I saw this commercial on TV the other day, when i saw the name of this post I thought maybe it was about that product. Anyways, I guess it was a "shaver" that actually pulls out the hairs so they dont grow in for a long time. Sort of like waxing. I don't know if it would be painful or not, but it interested me. Unfortunately I didn't give a damn to bother and remember the name of it. But It looked like a shaver, but it has tiny "things" that grab the hairs and pull them out I guess. Sounds painful but I don't know. I'll try and see if I can find it on google or something.

    Yea, does not sound fun to me lol.

    the epilator and epilady are really nothing more than motorized SPRINGS.

    They work by literally catching hair between coils of steel wire and yanking it out.

    For folks who have had enough waxing that it no longer is all that painful, its great...

    For anyone not used to waxing it combines all the pain of waxing with the pleasure of the hairs being pulled out individually instead of in one sudden rip.


    Laser hair removal is permanent. and costly... but if you really abhor the hair it will get you the most presentable and attractive results. ( no myriad of ingrown hairs trying to make a comeback)


    The other option is to get a beard trimmer and set it to its shortest setting and simply keep all the hair knocked back to eighth of quarter inch. Looks nice, requires only weekly maintenance, and has none of the ingrown or stubble problems of shaving and waxing.

    I use Veet. It works great. Put it on with the applicator, wait 5 to 8 minutes and rinse it off. I'm smooth for about 10 days. No itching, bumps, stubble ever. Check out my profile pics.

    I do keep it trimmed, but hair starts to creep on to the base of my penis and I really want to get rid of it.

    Creams can burn you. I don't recommend them.

    But, then, I see nothing wrong with having the hair you were born to have down there.

    Body hair removal has been the hardest part of living a bodybuilder's lifestyle for me. Having very thick, dark brown hair that after shaving stubbles over the next few days irritates the hell out of me. If I allow it to be, my chest can look like a real dense forest of black trees. I generally have my arms and chest waxed about every 6 weeks. The exception being that I plan ahead and have them done about 3 to 4 days before a competitive event. Having a good tan is also effective in that it can hide stubble. After nearly 20 years, I use Hair No More Cream on my underarms as I find there is the only place that the cream is effective and waxing my pits is too painful. Waxing is also painful on my legs, so I shave them in a hot bubble bath. As to the pubes, use clippers first so that you're only left with lots of stubbles, then get in that hot bubble bath and use disposable razors, not the Titanium double or triple blades. You'll learn to love shaving your cock and balls. I've not resorted to laser treatment mainly cause later in life I might regret not having pubes.

    I also like to keep it trimmed and I simply pluck (with regular old tweezers) the hair that starts to creep up on the base of the shaft. Only have to do it every couple weeks. Not painful.

    There are lotions which lessen the hair so you can shave less and they aren't as thick. Have to apply everday for a couple of weeks before they work.

    there is a cream called Vaniqa. it is a prescription, but basically, it stops the growth of the hair as long as you're using it. i've tried it, and it really works. if you're embarrassed to ask your dermatologist for it for this reason, tell him its for someting else.
