Since the day I had enough there to shave, I've been keeping the nether regions clear, but leaving everything else. As of a few months ago, I started shaving my underarms and don't regret that decision either. Today for the first time in my life I decided to try some deforestation of everything below the waistline. I literally felt like a lumberjack in the deep woods trying to clear cut my legs. Then came the REALLY hard part; Shaving my butt. The only mirror in the bathroom is an old 1950's medicine cabinet mounted at face-level. I had to go by feel, and feel alone. I put on the brave face of a swordsman walking into enemy camp.
In the end I managed to remove ALL the hair without a single cut, and proceeded to walk through my house like Frankenstein's monster since there was now skin contact that hadn't existed since I was 12. A few hours later I've become used to it, but I am now thinking to myself, there HAS to be a better way to do this than a disposable razor.
Any suggestions from experienced individuals? Waxing the "vertical smile" sounds like a fate worse than death.
I've had great results with a Braun epilator. I've been using one for 17 years (am now on my third, new improved version) and have had great results. Over time, with no special effort from me, it has pulled out most of the roots. My breasts, once moderately hairy (including my breasts) are now 99% permanently hairless, wonderfully smooth and soft to the touch, like my wife's breasts. I first began using the epilator for my pubic region, and while the hair there was thicker and tougher, I am now 90% permanently smooth there. I can go several weeks without epilating and the area sprouts very little pubic hair, most of it around the base of the penis. The model Braun epilator I use has a built in light, which is a big help.
Before acquiring my epilator I tried several depilatory creams. I learned not to leave them on too long to avoid burns. They did a decent job, but they were hardly better than a razor. Within a couple of days I could see the hair growing back.
