Learning how to shave your pubes and groin area calls for some caution, but it’s simple enough. Start by following this guide and your on the way to becoming an excellent manscaper.

1. Begin with some basic shaving prep. Before shaving down there, shower, dry off, cool down and have a quick comb through the hair to remove any knots.

2. Make the work easy for your trimmer (and yourself). Pull skin taut, and trim first with the direction of hair growth, then against. A well-placed mirror will help.


3. Take care. Trimming the groin is serious business. Take your time. Use short, light strokes, and avoid very sensitive areas. Don’t go over the same place too often.

4. Use a male grooming tool designed for shaving the pubic area
