If you are a guy trying to work out how to manscape your junk, you are in the right place. You wouldn’t cut your way through an untamed and wild jungle terrain without coming up with some plan. And the same applies to clearing the wilderness between your legs!
The area in question has many names, but to avoid any confusion, this article shows you how to shave your genital/pubic area. It also details the considerations that must be made before you decide to “whack the weeds” of your own “private garden.”
Bringing something sharp anywhere near your nether region can cause great anxiety. That bush is atop a sensitive terrain, where even the slightest mishap can be disastrous!
Reasons why men manscape their junk, are varied, but one of the main benefits is that it just looks better. It also feels cleaner, but you will suffer from uncomfortable and itchy balls if you do not keep up the trimming duties.
Another reason for men shaving their genitals is pressure from partners. According to a recent survey, more than half of the men interviewed shaved their groin to please their partners. A surprising six in ten men said they wouldn’t fight much before they had agreed to shave their pubic region.
Other reasons for removing your pubic thatch include;
In another Gillette survey, 92% of women said they preferred a neat and tidy guy around their junk.
In a study published in JAMA Dermatology, out of 7,500 adults surveyed, about 67% of men (compared with 85% of women) had attempted to groom their pubic areas.
The study looked at injuries caused by novice groomers. Of the surveyed, roughly 4% admitted to getting professional help with their bush, and approximately 9 percent confessed that they had asked their partner to help with trimming their pubes.
About 24% of men reported an injury relating to removing their genital thatch, with the poor old ball bag taking the most damage. An eye-watering 67% of all injuries were to the scrotum, with 38% to the penis itself! Blokes suffered burns from waxing incidents, rashes, in-growing hairs, and razor nicks.
This depends on whether you want to go ” old-school” with a manual razor or speed up the process with an electric trimmer.
With a razor, you’ll need a top-of-the-line razor, a premium shaving cream/gel for sensitive skin, and a cooling body powder or moisturizer.
If you’re using an electric trimmer/groomer, you will need a reputable machine and a good quality body powder or moisturizer.
With both methods, you should use some form of scrubbing agent, such as a body wash or shower gel, to clean yourself thoroughly. Other things on the list for a delicate trim are scissors, a fog-free mirror, exfoliating scrubs, and shaving oils.
Remove most of the hair with scissors or a trimmer/body groomer if your bush resembles Santa’s beard. Be careful, though, as some trimmers can be unsuitable for your nut sack, so probably safer to use some scissors if you’re a novice.
Clean your body thoroughly with a good-quality shower gel. Some men like to exfoliate, which removes any dead skin for a clean feeling. Make sure the area is hot and wet before moving on.
Now that the preparation is done, you’ll learn how to manscape your junk!
Don’t multitask with the tools you intend to use in your pubic area. It would be best if you did not use scissors or a trimmer that will be used on your head. That’s because bacteria, such as staph (Staphylococcus), can remain on old razors, etc.
Even if you’re careful when you manscape your junk, you may still get the odd cut. According to a 2012 study from the University of California at San Francisco, cuts were the most common injury sustained during pubic hair grooming.
If the worst happens and you draw a little blood, don’t panic. Just clean the area thoroughly with soap and warm water. Then use an antiseptic as required.
If it’s just a superficial cut, apply pressure with damp toilet paper to allow the blood to clot. Apply firm pressure to the affected area for 10 to 15 minutes. In extreme cases, if the bleeding doesn’t stop after 20 minutes, call your doctor, as you may need stitches.
