How do you avoid razor bumps "downstairs"?

I'm sure I'm not the only one who shaves my hoo-ha, for lack of a better word, and I was wondering if there was any trick or technique to avoid razor bumps? Everytime I shave it gets itchy as HELL and all I wanna do is scratch the shit out of my vajayay, which tends to get awkward in certain situations. Oh, and the bumps arent too attractive either.

  • You don't shave it. The real question is why your SO wants to be with a prepubescent girl?

  • Anon 9:49, I shave because pubic hair is DISGUSTING and I feel sorry for your SO for having to touch it, lick it, or even see it. YUCK!!!

    Shelii, thanks, I'll try that next time :)

  • You are the one that is gross! I don't know why you are perpetrating the young girl fetish.

  • I dont think it has anything to do with looking like a prepubescent girl. Sorry for the graphic words, but when you have a big old bush down there and pee and have periods and cum or whatever it all gets caught in the hair *puke* and isnt going to just wipe out with TP. In all honesty, I'm not even with anybody, I havent been with a man or sexual in any way in over two years, hair down there just grosses me out, it gets caught in the edges of my undies and pulls and it HURTS. That hair just grosses me out, and I'd rather be without it. It doesnt have much to do with what a guy thinks of me, obviously. It's just an annoyance to me.

  • don't use a razor. I use Veet hair removal cream with the bladeless razor. no razor burn && it doesn't itch when the hair starts to grow back.

  • yeah i don't see anything "childish" about shaving your pubic area..i don't shave mine bald but i make sure the sides are shaved cause like another lady said, it gets caught in the edges of my undies and pulls...omg it drives me nuts! hell my SO doesnt mind when its a bush but i do..so to the rude lady who can only think about child sex or whatever, some women actually do like to keep there pubs trim and there is nothing wrong with that, i shaved my edges before i ever had a boyfriend so it has nothing to do with what a man wants

  • Hey OP :59 we should start a group! lol. 3 years here with no weenie in sight! I have a bush but I do trim it short because of the period thing. Shaving?
