    I know that waxing body parts can be painful but as the balls are you know somewhat delicately thin skinned would waxing them cause bleeding?

    Anyone experienced with this?

    I am not sure I would want to try this.... I would think it would draw blood, but have never done it.

    Montreal Mirror - Hot Summer Guide: Testicles


    But as for waxing testicles, Lacroix says it isn't a good idea. "When you apply the wax, the skin there is too loose - it's not firm, like a muscle is. So when we put the wax on and then go to pull the hair off with it, the skin is going to move and stretch too much and it will be too painful. In addition, the hair in that area is very thick and coarse, so it has big roots and is very difficult to pull out with wax."
    Even though a ball-wax wasn't on the menu at Physotech, a nervous Pat spent the next 20 minutes splayed out in a softly-lit room filled with relaxing music, holding his bits in various positions to get the hair whisked away from his "bikini" area, perineum (the area between the scrotum and anus) and for extra good measure, the crack of his buttocks.
    Pat's session was punctuated with surprised gasps of pain, bursts of laughter and the odd four-letter expletive. Before emerging from the room with a moist glaze over his eyes, he was told that sex was verboten for the next 24 hours. This, says Lacroix, is "to allow the pores to close and prevent infection."
    As for hair on the testicles, Lacroix recommends trimming it with a small set of clippers with a No. 1 blade for the closest crop. Laser hair removal is another option that can provide good results, he says, but is best for those over 30 years of age whose hair growth patterns have stabilized.
    [SIZE=+1]Safe for the scrotum?[/SIZE]
    Lysanne Gingras, however, maintains that waxing the scrotum is safe and that it's simply a matter of technique. "It's a team effort. You do have to stretch the skin very carefully in order to remove the hair. It's a delicate process, but with the help of the client, it can be done."
    Unlike Lacroix, who uses warm wax, Gingras uses hot wax. While his wax is a clear honey-like liquid that rolls on easily, the wax she uses is of a thick, creamy consistency that must be applied with a spatula and looks like Silly Putty when it dries on the skin a few seconds after application.
    Despite their names, they are used at about the same temperature. Because the so-called hot wax is thicker and hardens a bit once put on the skin, it coats the hair better and gets a better grip on it, facilitating removal. Women would recognize it as the one used when they get Brazilian waxes, as it is best suited for pulling out coarse, stubborn hair such as that in the pubic area.
    At any rate, although he was pleased with the results of the bikini waxing, there won't be an encore for Pat. "I don't think I'll be doing it again because of the pain. Shaving seems to work, even if it is a pain in the ass."
    Yan agrees that "it hurts," but added that he's "definitely been through worse." For him, the benefits, such as lower maintenance (because hair is pulled out at the root, it doesn't grow back as quickly) and finer regrowth make it all worthwhile.
    Pat was also unnerved by the small amount of bleeding he experienced. With some clients, and depending on the type of waxing being done a small amount of blood, usually just a minuscule drop from the odd pore, is not uncommon.
    "It comes with any kind of waxing, especially if the skin is very sensitive or you have eczema," Gingras says. "But with first-time waxers, the hair follicle is often surrounded by something similar to a whitehead, so when you rip it out it can cause a bit of bleeding." As one waxes more regularly and the accumulation of gunk that can surround the hair is removed, this becomes less of a problem, she says.

    Good article from The Montreal Mirror. I noticed that your query did not go into the whys of hair removal (perhaps for visual reasons as a professional swimmer, model, dancer, bodybuilder, porn star, or maybe as a regular guy who just prefers smooth skin and the consequent heightened sensitivity of denuded areas), nor did it speak to the issue of permanency (shaving = temporary and not perfectly smooth; plucking, waxing, or laser = longer-term and baby-smooth results). But do keep in mind that anyone who asks their genetically programmed body to take on a physical change (short of a haircut or dye job) is likely to experience some degree of discomfort, even with shaving (just ask any man who wages daily war with a blade around the minefield known as the Adam’s Apple).

    In addition to what Gringas said in The Montreal Mirror article, my experience has been that the hairs on the outer regions of the testicles, particularly those just above the scrotum and penis, have deeper roots and consequently have more of an “Ouch!” factor when plucked/waxed, making these the most likely hairs to have a random spot of blood when removed (the key words here are “random” and “spot”).

    So, shaving vs. waxing? Both methods are relatively quick, but it’s a matter of weighing the desired results against the levels of discomfort these methods might entail. And don’t give up on the waxing method without getting more information, lineok03. You might even try chatting up some of the guys here on LPSG whose photos show a smooth scrotum, starting with guys who have dark hair and provide close-up photos that can be a clue to shavers (cock and balls with stubble) or waxers (smooth and stubble-free). – TP.

    The thought of shaving scares me, i've cut myself twice trying before and its put me off and that is even taking the advice from another shaving thread i started a few months back.

    Would hair removal cream work? I'm sure i've heard that you're not meant to use it on genitals tho

    I get waxed reguarly, legs, back, stomache, balls, arse. Some areas are more sensitive than others. I find the back and inside of my thighs the most painful areas to get waxed - mild stinging sensation.

    The first time an area is waxed some blood spots may occur, particuarly when the hair is thick / coarse, etc. The problem does not occur during repeat waxings.

    In my experiece the gains far out weigh any short term pain. Having some young hottie rub moisturising lotion over my freshly waxed balls and arse always ensures the waxing session ends on a pleasurable note.

    I've used the cream before -- didn't hurt or draw blood, and it took care of 98% of the hair. I finished up a bit with a razor the next day and all was well. The worst thing about the cream for me was the godawful SMELL. It's seriously That Bad(tm).

    cruza, do you wax yourself, or brave enough to have someone else do it.

    mitchy, I shave every few days and the way my skin hangs loosely, I'm always afraid I'll cut my self, but (knock on wood) never have.
    Here's another invitation to come to the states and I'll show you :biggrin1:

    instead of waxing, look for a place that offers sugaring. It's more comfortable and effective on your balls. It still hurts though, but worth the brief pain.
