    I read the other day that you can use Vasiline in stead of shaving cream to shave your pubic area. That will prevent itching. Did anybody try it? I dont shave down there. Share your findings with us. :)

    Eeww! :eek: I would never do that. Vaseline is thick and gloppy and would clog up the blades.

    Why would you ever need to use anything other than a shaving cream or soap suds to shave?

    The chemistry of Vaseline along with the physics of shaving make the assertion rather preposterous.

    I don't shave (down there) but I learned something one morning in a hotel when I ran out of shaving gel. Eros lube give a clean close shave upstairs so I'm inclined to believe it would do a great job downstairs.

    Yeah there's no reason that vaseline shouldn't work, shaving oils are common enough for your face ( I use one, for my face and pubes ) and as long as one didn't slather on loads of it I expect that vaseline would act in the same way as a shaving oil. The problem would be that it doesn't wash off easily which might cause problems with not being able to properly exfoliate to prevent ingrowth of hairs.

    I don't shave my pubes, I like my pubes. But that sounds like it wouldn't be a good idea lol. You could try it and see if it works though.
