Manscaping Your Pubes - Anyone?!

Manscape @ Manscaping - The artful shaving and trimming of a man's body hair.


 The word "manscaping" was popularized by the wildly popular reality makeover show "Queer Eye For The Straight Guy" ( I used to love watching the series as well back in 2003-2004 ) - This hilarious show has five gay men — specializing in fashion, cooking, interior decorating, culture and grooming — making over a straight man.

" Manscaping is an issue many gay men wrestle with who are active in the gay community. If you are very hairy body hair wise, you could be lumped in with the bear community, which is defined as gay males who are very hairy and let that hair grow wild, taking pride in an almost neo tribal look. "

"Manscaping however is not just for twinks, but really any gay man who does not desire to be lumped into the bear category. So called bears can often have a difficult time finding other non bears for romantic encounters of the third kind. It can be a real bummer to get turned down over being to...hirsute."

"If you want a look between a bear and a twink, go for manscaping that basically involves pretty much nothing more then trimming most areas of the body. If you are aiming for more of the jock twink look you may want to try shaving those areas of your body that you find your body hair to be a little too long and wild for your tastes. "

"There is no right or wrong here, no absolutes, no pure black and white, only shades of gray. What makes a manscaping method right for you is simply put whatever makes you more comfortable and makes you feel sexier and more hygienic."

Hence, with the title of my post today..."Manscaping Our Pubes"!



A survey from The Flinders University, Adelaide, Australia, involving 226 heterosexual males & 106 homosexual males found that:


  • Gay and straight men were almost equally likely to remove some or all pubic hair, about 60 per cent at least occasionally.
  • But only one in 10 of these men was prepared to pay up to $75 to have the male equivalent of a Brazilian wax. Almost 9 out of 10 men who removed their pubic hair were shaving or clipping it themselves.
  • Methods of hair removal: 
  • 11.5 % of gay and straight men waxed; 
  • 88.5 % of straight and 85% of gay men shaved; 
  • 17.5 % of straight and 19.5 % of gay men used depilatory creams.
  • 55 % of straight and 58 % of gay men waxed back and buttock hair.
  • Reasons for removing hair: 
    • 20 % of straight and 24 % of gay men said it improved their appearance; 
    • 12 % of straight and 23 % of gay men said it looked cleaner/neater; 
    • 10 % of straight and 14 % of gay men said it made their genitals look bigger.
  • Male pubic hair removal began with pornography, because the removal of background hair made the penis look bigger ( reasoning mentioned by 14 % of gay men and 10 % of heterosexuals in the Flinders survey). But the practice had been "mainstreamed" into "normal" grooming and fashion. Male pubic hair removal was also an extension of men removing hair for sporting reasons, with cyclists and swimmers doing it for speed.

"Manscaping is all about self image and building confidence. When we feel healthier, when we feel sexier, we begin to build higher self confidence."

"Speaking of self confidence, did you know shaving your package, as well as your packages shrubbery, that it makes your lone forest tree appear to stand much taller? Yes I am talking about the penis. Removing any hair on or around the penis makes it appear much larger. It draws the eye to it, makes it stand out in all its glory. Who wouldn't want that?"

So, what are the METHODS of manscaping your pubic hairs?
Taken from : http://www.askmen.com/dating/love_tip_150/159_love_tip.html

A) TRIMMING
  • Perhaps the most basic way involved in removing pubic hair is simply to trim it back. 
  • 2 affordable options exist: scissors & electric trimmers. 
  • Scissors are acceptable when used by skilled hands, but an electric trimmer is highly recommended for removing pubic hair. 
  • Scissors, aside from being dangerous to wield around such a sensitive area, can result in an uneven, scraggly look that almost defeats the purpose unless you’re careful. 
  • Be smart, use a trimmer.
      PROS

  • Affordable option(s) exist that can be purchased/stored without any embarrassment.
  • With a trimmer, you get a uniform, complementary length of pubic hair.
  • Maintenance is relatively easy.
     CONS 
  • Cleanup can be a mess since you need to trim your pubic hair while it’s dry.
  • With scissors, you can end up with a choppy-looking bush that’s comical instead of alluring.
  • Maintenance requires frequent upkeep and attention (every 12-14 days, depending).
B) SHAVING
  • The razor is a very popular weapon of choice when removing pubic hair, and justifiably so. 
  • For most guys, this grooming technique is familiar and a good solution. 
  • When shaving away pubic hair, not only do you get a super-clean, hygienic look, but you also get to do it discretely in the shower, with tools already stocked in the medicine cabinet. 
  • Thus, it’s a well-rounded option for a lot of guys.
      PROS 
  • It's a simple, familiar process that doesn’t take too long.
  • Leaves the skin around your penis and scrotum smooth and appealing to the touch.
  • It can be done in the shower, so there's relatively little cleanup involved.
     CONS
  • As you learned as a teenager: Once you start, you can’t stop.
  • It can leave skin irritations such as razor burns, rashes and ingrown hairs.
  • It requires continual upkeep (every two to three days) and can be itchy as it grows back.

C) DEPILATORIES
  • Many well-known brands now have a men’s depilatory entry on the hair-remover market, and many guys are taking stock in this technique for removing pubic hair. 
  • These creams, which dissolve hair so that it can be wiped away, are a mid-market option: 
  • They cost a bit more than trimmers or razors, but lessen the amount of time involved in upkeep. 
  • While they might be better for those areas around your goods, if you choose this option, be wise and test the product on the inside of your elbow first, then wait 48 hours to be sure your skin has no adverse reactions.
      PROS
  • It's pain-free (ideally), easy to use and affordable.
  • It lasts longer than shaving and isn't as cumbersome or painful as waxing.
  • Hair grows back softer and less coarse than it does with shaving.

      CONS
  • It's harsh and abrasive to the skin, so you have to time them perfectly.
  • There's a possibility you may have an allergic, itchy reaction to the cream.
  • Unpleasant smells can be a residual side-effect.
 D) WAXING
  • Long thought of as a woman’s prerogative, waxing is making great strides in gender equality. 
  • Men have caught on to the many benefits that waxing offers: smooth, longer-lasting results. 
  • In fact, it’s the last stop before permanent hair removal, so it does have its advantages.
      PROS
  • The results last two to four weeks, and continued waxing leads to diminished hair growth over time.
  • Many waxing salons now cater specifically to men, providing expertise and discretion.
  • Waxing can be done at home, which gives you more privacy and significant cost savings.
     CONS
  • It's painful and expensive.
  • Women dominate waxing salons; be ready to share your business (literally and figuratively) i.e, while the outcome will be equal to that of cheaper, gentler options.
  • The skin on your testicles is very sensitive. Some waxing salons won’t agree to wax this area.

TIPS IN SHAVING YOUR GROIN:

  Firstly, you need to look at yourself in the mirror...Where, How and How Much do you want to shave....
  1.  Buy a beard or hair trimmer and trim the pubic area to the desired length.
  2. Take a hot shower. This will loosen the skin and make the hair easier to shave. 
 
A "Hot" shower indeed...
3. Lather the area with shaving cream intended for sensitive skin. Avoid menthol or heavily scented creams as they will irritate the area.

4. Using a new 3 or 4 bladed razor, shave each area using short very light strokes.
  • Pulling the penis downward shave from the top of the penis upward to the navel.
  • Most of the hair growing between the penis and the stomach grow downward. Holding the penis downward and in the opposite direction of the area you are going the shave, shave using upward motions.
  • Holding the penis to the side, shave inwards in the sides of it and in the sides of the scrotum.
  • Holding the penis upward, shave downwards carefully from the penis to the lower part of the scrotum.
  • The scrotum is extremely easier to shave if the skin is extended. The scrotum should be shaved from the middle front part of it, to the sides, with extreme care.
5. Rinse off and wash area using mild soap


Remember to wipe yourself up ya!

6. If you do not shave often or this is your first time, use some antiseptic cream to counteract skin   irritations and pimples.

 Remember to clean up all your fallen pubic hairs ya! You wouldn't want your parents to find a thick bush stuck in the drain pipe!

7. If you use the edge of a toilet seat to sit on, letting your public area sit over a garbage can while shaving, the mess will be next to nothing to clean up.

A scissors guy too. The bf prefers it trimmed for *ahem ahem*. The vid looks painful. :S

Evann said...

Been there, done that.

I wouldn't recommend shaving though. Its cons greatly outweigh the limited pros. Shaving's really bad.

I don't condemn depilatories, though much care and attention needs to be given on types and timing, or else one would end up with a bad chemical burn for weeks!

Trimming and/or waxing are the best methods. =)

The same reason why we have haircuts: to look and feel good about ourselves. It's all about image. Heheh.

Rob said...

I am also a trimmer but I use an electric trimmer rather than scissors. I have tried the depilatories creams before but as Evann says, you have to be so careful or you can burn yourself. I do like to see a guy with neatly trimmed pubes, I think that is much sexier than the completely bare look.
