    I shave my armpits when I find everything is being bushy there but currently i noticed after shaving it is itchier than usual. Any ideas?

    the itching is due to the hair growing back...
    that's why I only trim when it gets overgrown, I never shave completely...
    and I use electric clippers...

    Rather than shave, just do some manscaping as if you were beating down sagebrush. Leave a half inch or so and keep about that length. A little talc helps quell the itch while completely shaved pits grow back to a comfortable length.

    Pubic hair, armpit hair etc. is a dry lubricant. As you swing your arms while you walk, the hair keeps the skin from rubbing together and getting irritated.

    A friend of mine told me he and his wife shaved their pubes once and thought the sex would be really hot. It was very uncomfortable for both of them. He asked me -- Did you know that the function of pubic hair is to be a dry lubricant? Duh!! I couldn't help but laugh. Fortunately he took it very well. Lesson learned.

    If you're going to shave all the way, use a light, fine talc afterwards.

    Personally, although I shave my head, I get horrified when I find a guy who's shaved everything. I mean... *everything*....
