    I've noticed that a lot of straight guys either shave or clip their pubes and balls. I'm really interested to know how popular manscaping has become among straight males. Personally, I've been clipping for years as I like the feeling of freshness and I much prefer smooth balls as they feel very sensual.

    I shave some hair around the base of my cock and do some scissor trimming on my pubes.

    edit: I did not participate in your poll, none of the answers aare appropriate for me.

    I prefer myself to be totally shaved, I have for some time now, (since senior year in HS) just makes me feel good about myself, my cock, etc. But I dont really have any hair on my chest or that much on my legs so i think it just fits better to have my pubes shaved.

    I shave because my lady friends like it that way and also because I like the look. No complaints yet.

    If left completely alone, my pubic grows to about 3 inches long. For me, it's less a case of 'manscaping', more a case of 'stop-myself-getting-a-huge-bush-ing'

    i keep my pubes trimmed - they grow higher up my stomach than i like (i keep my chest and stomach smooth) so i shave down to just a little above the base of my cock, and trim what's left. i don't trim them heaps short but i keep them tidy. i try to keep the balls smooth too, but i can't be bothered a lot of the time.

    Never really had hairy balls but have keep them shaved since my teens. I use to have the complete shaved package but the itchy feeling when growing back became a pain. So now I just clipper the whole lot. The longest hairs on my body are on my legs.

    I could have written that myself, including the comment about the poll.

    Why shave? Leave the jungle untouched. I trim very rarely. Sorts of itches when the hair is short.Personal preference, I'm sure

    A quick trim will do me. All this shaving & customising is just so unmanly.

    Its so unmasculine for a man to shave his body hair unless to slightly clip some even hairy parts of it. Hairy backs are another story though.

    I trim. I only shave the shaft of my penis. I used to shave my entire package, but, even though I much prefer the way it feels that way, I eventually decided that it doesn't look right.

    I trim the pubic hair around my unit quite short. I regularly shave shaft and balls smooth. The bushy look and feel doesn't appeal to me.

    Shaving and trimming somehow makes it all appear larger, too. :biggrin1:

    I trim but won't ever shave. Too bad that the look is getting more popular.

    I never trimmed or shaved my pubes but the other day i thought id try it,,,trimmed pubes down way close and shaved my shaft and balls. It looked odd at first but then I got used to it and think it looks totally hot. One advantage is when someone gets a side shot of your cock hanging it looks alot bigger. Have noticed more stares in the gym shower. Maybe because of lack of a big bush?

    I trim, so it's tidy and there are fewer hairs getting in my g/f's mouth.
