I have been manscaping my pubic hair for months now and even if I do my best to shave with a razor to get as clean and close as possible, my wife will tell me that she can still feel stubble.
I even “bit the bullet” a few times and shaved against the grain (I’ll never do that again) and she still felt it!
I’m at a loss of ideas on what to do to make the experience smooth for her. Your suggestions and ideas are needed and greatly appreciated.
At this point, I’m ready to wear boxers, keep them on, and have sex that way!
The reason I shave is that she stated that my pubic hairs were too coarse. Now after I shave them, she comments about the stubble. Sigh.
The only thing I can think of is waxing.
Aside from the fact that I prefer the aesthetic of hair on dh there isn’t really a way around stubble as hair grows back and it does chafe. That’s one of the main reason neither dh or I shave (he likes the hair too). I just trim and he’s “au naturel.”
DH’s pubic hair isn’t overly coarse and doesn’t bother me, but his (sometimes) 5 o’clock shadow/short beard is like needles! He uses beard oil and that helps a lot, but you probably don’t want to use that down there. Maybe a super hydrating conditioner? The suggestions others have made regarding shaving daily with a quality razor sounds good, but a bit tedious.
The additional piece of info – about your hair being course is likely helpful. It would seem to me your stubble is probably courser than other stubble as a result. It seems to me that in your case, some length is better than trying to keep yours shaved. Also, using a good conditioner or some oil on our pubic hair might make it softer for your DW.
Of course some like it shaved or waxed. But from all the threads I’ve read on this, the hassle isn’t worth it for me- both the upkeep and the likelihood of complications from either shaving or waxing. Like Tents, we are natural here – DW does trim some.
I had the same experience coupled with razor bumps. Didn’t want to wax so I settled for keeping it trimmed short. She prefers it that way and it’s a lot less upkeep. My pubic hair isn’t overly coarse though. Should you choose to trim short I’m wondering if there is a product available to soften the hair that remains?
I shave mine in the shower and do so each day to ensure it stays smooth for my wife. I have used a product called coochy from pure romance that my wife actually uses and I have never had any bumps or razor burn….I am sure regular shaving creme would also work..
