    I know guys shavng their balls and trimming their pubes seems to be in the majority now; but I wondering if any guys here still go all natural?

    Up until my earlier 20's I had never shaved.Then by request by my gf I shaved my balls and trimmed my pubes.I noticed my crotch accumated a lot more sweat.My balls constantly sticking to my legs. After we broke up I let myself go to full bush and balls hairy again.My current gf doesn't mind. I have to say my own preference I like having a full bush.For me it looks more natural, it appears more masculine and I don't have to worry about my balls sticking to my legs.

    I shave the hair that grows on my shaft and once in a while I'll deforest the sac, but that's it. I like the rest of my bush full and natural.

    I shave the shaft, trim below, and leave the top alone. I've gotten nothing but compliments. And my experience has been the opposite: my crotch is much cooler than when bushy.

    Different strokes, as they say.

    I recently started shaving my pubes, and I think it feels and looks great, but it does seem to get kinda sweaty for some reason.

    VladtheImpaler: I only started cutting off my pubic hair a few years ago. I shaved it off completely at first (I was in an experimental mood). I quickly found out that that was not a good idea; itching, chafing, sweating. But I liked how cutting off my hair helped show off my size. It definitely seemed to impress the ladies ;) .

    Since then I have mostly just trimmed the hair down close to the skin. It's easier to maintain that a full shave and more comfortable, and you still get to display the package more clearly than you do with the "bushy" look. Sometimes I still like to shave it all off just for the sake of variety. I find that it's not as irritating as it was after the first time. Maybe my skin got used to it?

    HornyVeteranSJ: To me short hairs=masculinity....Never trim...been shaved once for an operation and I would never shave again!!! Some guys have gorgeous body hair patterns and ruin it by shaving their crotch. Some guys are naturally smooth and shave their short hairs....I think that looks better than some hairy guy shaving, but still makes them look like a child. Now some guys trim. That's cool if they know how to do it. A trim on the shaft and the balls to me are okay....leave the bush alone!!! B)

    I started about 5 years ago with trimming and kept going closer and closer and now I shave above, around and below once a week while in the shower using a Venus Devine (they're made for sensitive places :) ). ZGo WITH the grain growth to avoid bumps and chaffing. I usually use powder daily to stay cool and have felt noticeably less sweaty and hot since being shaven. The wife thinks it's sexy and it definitely makes me feel like a pron star. :)

    I trim, but it's only just a little bit. Kind of like gardening: I want to keep the weeds from getting out of control.

    I do the shorn bit a lot nowadays in particular in the sumer, when it can become somewhat irritating if you don't. So, everything that's a hair follicle is lopped off with no hesitation.

    I tend not to bother too much, but it helps with hygiene a little better.

    Personally I Bic it all. I think this might be strange for a straight guy but whatever. I love the feeling of a completely smooth package! My gf shaves as well and it just feels amazing when we she lets me go pelvis to pelvis. The bonus is oral sex too, I dont like going down on her when she hasnt shaved very much.

    I shave the balls and the hair that grows on the shaft, the rest I just trim a little.

    If I'm going to be wearing a thong, I trim. Thankfully, I probably don't have as much pubic hair as most men.

    I agree that the smoothness feels nice and I've tried the completely shaven style before. Unfortunately, the rest of me is fairly hairy, so a smooth crotch looks really weird on me. The good news is that women seem to be impressed by ANY amount of grooming and trimming down there at all.

    I like shaving my shaft to make sure it's free of hair, but I don't mind a little bit of growth in the pubic region. I have mixed feelings on shaved nuts. Mine aren't all that hairy to begin with anyway, but to shave them clean would require that period of itchiness when the hair starts coming in, and it's just uncomfortable enough to make it a pain.

    I trim the bush and surrounding area and the hair that grows on my shaft with a little electric clipper designed for beards. I never thought of doing this until a few years ago when a girl commented that my bush was really out of control. Before that, I didn't think I had an unusual amount of hair down there, but that made me self conscious. So I started keeping it trimmed--the trick is to make it look neat without making it look deliberately shaved.

    VladtheImpaler: It's definitely true that one of the problems of shaving your pubic area is that unless you also shave the rest of your body hair, you look pretty odd. Hairy chest, hairy belly, hairy arms and legs...but a shaved cock? Unless you're a fetishist, it just seems weird. So then you have to start cutting off the rest of your body hair too. I usually just settle for shaving off my abdominal and thigh hairs if I am currently clean shaven "down there". Basically it's a big hassle keeping your body shaved all the time. Life is too short. This is the main reason I usually just closely trim my pubic hair rather than go the "full monty". The rest of your body hair doesn't look odd alongside a bush that has only been trimmed rather than eliminated entirely.

    Like Donk, I've taken to shaving my pubs with a beard trimmer so that it is not a close shave to cause itching. I started on a drunken whim one day just to see what it looked like, but not really liking it. Then it became a matter of nessesity to shave the hair on my shaft so that I could slip a condom on or off easily. I hated getting hairs caught in the condom base.

    Then I graduated to just shaving my balls which feels great when I j/o or having it sucked by my gf's. Now I trim my pubs close again (I began to notice it looks better by watching a lot of str8 porn, which most of the guys have started doing) shave my ballls and shaft. It does make my cock look better to me when I'm masturbating at least. I love looking at the base of my dick where it's connected to my body. Weird I know!

    My scrotum is hairless without any help from me. My pubic hair is naturally short and fine, so trimming would be pretty pointless. I shaved once ... never again!
