Well, don't count on it staying like that. I was about what you have at 18. Now, at 26, I have thick hair on the chest and, unfortunately, back hair. If you ever are unfortunate enough to be cursed with back hair, do not fret, just buy a mangroomer.

I've embraced the hairy chest, arms, legs, etc.. I've ended flings with girls who asked me to shave my chest. It's not happening. Don't have the time, nor the desire to keep it up. Some girls love it though. Can't win them all.

Good luck, fellow woolly mammoth.

u/VerbalViolence · 37 pointsr/TopsAndBottoms

I use a Norelco Body Groomer 7000.

Works wonderfully on pubes and body hair in general (including hair around your hole) Can be used wet or dry. I use it dry with no shaving cream and I've never had an issue. Provides a nice clean shave.

u/DarthStem · 21 pointsr/sex

This one

I want to get something with a little more ass to make the task go a little quicker.

u/pulledporg · 20 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

I just shave my face around the mouth everyday when I get up. I bought one of these and have bought a new blade time or two and it seems fine.

u/lidlredridinghood · 17 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

This is what my partner suggested, and he's the type to do soooo muuuch research and compare everything. Apparnetly this is the version that porn stars use... :) I've used it for the last year, and it's been chill. Slower than a razor, but I don't cut myself, and less razor burn issues, although it's still a thing.

u/uiucmike · 16 pointsr/UIUC

wow thx <3 <3 <3

But honestly, literally anyone can be attractive. If that's a major roadblock for you to improve your social skills, do soemthing about it; give yourself a makeover! Following is subjective, I guess, but..

Get a good haircut. 90% of the time, that just means "short on the sides, longer on top". LookAfter on green is really good. You could probably just be like "yo hook me up" and they can give you something trendy. Put this in your hair. Shower in the morning, and blowdry it instead of letting it air dry.

Revamp your wardrobe. Get tighter clothes. A pair of these will get you far. If you can button them without causing lots of physical pain to yourself, they aren't too tight (and they will stretch). Try to avoid washing jeans in the washing machine. If you do, air dry them. If your jeans fit well, chances are they won't after you run them through the dryer.

Stay away from gym shoes. A pair of black and a pair of white vans will take you a long way.

Stay away from overusing graphic tees. Grey is a great colour that looks good on everyone. Black and other dark colours are good too. Sweatshirts usually look p good as long as they are a tight fit. Henleys are easy and lit too.

Stay away from cargo shorts. Tight, coloured, mid-thigh shorts are "in" and look better. Looser but still short & thin neutral-coloured shorts are ez too. Especially for spring/summer.

Most of the stuff from Express, H&M, Zara, sometimes A&F, etc. is good.

Qt, bold briefs/boxer briefs from calvin klein, aussiebum, etc. are lit too. People won't often see them, obviously, but it's an easy confidence boost.

Don't discount the importance of being confident. Milo Yiannopoulos isn't actually that attractive, but he is 110% confident, so he tricks you into adding like 4 points. Fix your posture. Sit up straight, stand up straight w/ your shoulders back. Your body will feel better, and you will come off much more confident. Body language is important. The same is true about smiling more, etc.

Take care of your teeth. Crest Whitestrips can save your life if you are a soda/coffee drinker. Floss twice a day, maybe get a tongue brush.

Keep your body hair under control with one of these and a decent razer. Another thing that people only will see if you wear like a real deep v-neck or unbuttoned Henley or when you are sexing, but a confidence booster nonetheless.

Keep your hygiene up to par. Shower often, wash thoroughly (a loofah or washcloth is a good investment) with some kind of good-smelling body wash, wear deodorant, and get some kind of cologne that isn't axe (one of the < $30 ones from Amazon is fine). Also, idk why straight boys often don't wash their butthole, but wash your butthole.

Take care of your skin. This will save your life. If you have acne and that doesn't work well enough, invest in a proactiv subscription or something. You will look and feel much better. Don't be afraid of concealer to cover up some particularly egregious blemishes. Idk anything about makeup brands, but something like this (except that matches your skin tone) is great because it doubles as a mild acne treatment. This (or any spray product with Salicylic acid) will help immensely if you have body acne.

Get in shape. You will look and feel better! You sound like you don't have much time to go to the gym, which is fine. Muscly, skinny and toned, or super skinny are all "trendy" looks. Just avoid dad bod. Skinny can be achieved just through diet and optionally doing body weight exercises at home (crunches, pushups, etc.) or getting a pair of weights. Most importantly, make sure the fit of your clothes matches your body. All of those 3 benefit from snug fits. Dad bod "benefits" from a looser fit, but that's because your clothes are trying to hide your body shape rather than accentuate it, hence why it isn't ideal.

Before interviews/career/fairs/going on a date/whatever other important event, max all this out. Aside from looking good, you will feel good, and you will have a much easier time being confident. When talking to recruiters, especially during the interview, I find that when you feel good about yourself, nerves dissipate hardcore to the point where even when you are stuck, you don't really get that sinking feeling in your stomach. Smile and nod a lot, sell yourself with your strong, confident energy. If you seem like a fun person to work with (and look at), that can make up for a lot of your "faults".

I got all of my interviews that I got at the Expo this year wearing shorts and flip-flops (went during lunch break at work, so didn't have time to change). Just be a chill, happy, and humble dude/dudette, but own the fact that you feel good about yourself. Ppl dig that, especially when a lot of kids are in the same situation you are (ie. don't feel attractive or comfortable talking to people, or their whole life is just academics).

Edit: Oops also do your eyebrows and keep your facial hair in check.

u/randomlurker2123 · 13 pointsr/lifehacks

Issue with BakBlade is that it's still disposable blades, you can only use them for so long, and if you have sensitive skin it will absolutely give you razor burn or ingrown hairs. Check out The Mangroomer

u/Dajbman22 · 13 pointsr/AskMen

I mean if you're ok with just trim, not all gone (full shaving is a lot to ask some guys), buy him this groomer.

It works great and my wife really likes how it looks with the #3 comb.

u/PoppaDR3W · 13 pointsr/AskMen

If you have a hairy back, there are now grooming tools to easily reach your back. I'm just a hairy guy and have been. Hair on your chest is one thing, but the back is another. This is especially true when it gets hot out; shaving my back made me sweat a bit less back there. So, I used this one:
BRO SHAVER Back Hair Shaver, Uses Standard Double Edge (DE) Safety Razor Blades, Stainless Steel Bolts, Cheap refills, Blades cost pennies, 15 razors included, Do-it-yourself

It's durable, easy to use, and comes with an assortment of extra blades. I suggest putting down a towel underneath you, as well as a paper towel in the sink to help catch hair.

If you sweat, even when using deodorant, use the hardcore overnight stuff. I have used a few different brands, with this being the latest one:

Purax Antiperspirant Roll On Extra Strong

It lasts quite a long time overall and definitely helps with the pits. My pits get bad - very bad. At work I wear a uniform with a light blue shirt, so it's totally obvious if my arms move upward. Lucky for me, my arms are pretty big (humblebrag), so it blocks it out when they're down. These roll on antiperspirants make the sweat minimal or nothing. Take notice, they may irritate the skin, especially when first using.

Use facial moisturizer. After every shower I take I use a simple facial moisturizer I got from CVS. It's made for men (that's probably just an advertisement thing) and smells a bit like musk and cocoa. A weird, but really good smell.

I haven't seen it here, but gloss. You'll thank me and yourself when you get a cleaning at the dentist and it isn't like you're being tortured... as much.

u/King_of_Camp · 9 pointsr/gaybros

Norelco has just released an electric razor that comes with a handle extender and is designed specifically for removing/trimming back hair and other body hair. I love mine, cost about $50.

Edit: found it on Amazon for $40, link below

u/quizonyourface · 8 pointsr/sex

Trimmed/shaved my wife's pussy for her, and she loved it. She normally uses an electric trimmer to keep things neat, but she never gets it really short and says it's because she can't see/feel well enough what she's doing.

This week I told her straight up that I wanted to use the trimmer for her. She was a little skittish about it, but I reassured her I'd be super careful, and she decided to let me give it a try.

I was ultra careful and worked hard to not tickle her (and of course also not cut her), and was able to get basically all the hair off her lips right down to the skin, almost like a real shave. I left the front landing-strip area intact, but cleaned the lips up real nice. Giving her oral this week has been wonderful (Yum!) and she's made multiple comments about how weird/fun it feels to her just walking around.

Last night she even mentioned that I "didn't quite finish the job" with the trimmer, which I think might mean that she wants me to just shave off everything and leave her completely bare. That would be a first, too.

u/MV104 · 8 pointsr/OkCupid

I think you and I have a similar appearance, though your hair is more abundant than mine. I suggest investing one of these. and keeping your beard trim and shaped with a straight razor. I use an old Wahl trimmer for the beard and giving myself a buzz cut.

Granted, I don't have women beating down the door but they don't run in terror either so take my advice for what it's worth.

u/TA_DL · 8 pointsr/ABDL

Personally, I find shaving with a regular razor to be too much of a hassle to bother with. I get bad razor burn, which padding only makes worse :(

One alternative as baby_pug mentioned is using an electric clipper with adjustable length to trim down to as short as possible. You won't be totally hairless, but it looks and feels pretty close, especially if you keep it trimmed every couple of days.

I've also had really good results with a [Philips Bodygroom] ( trimmer - you use it in the shower, using shaving gel. It gives a really close shave, but leads to much, much less irritation than a regular razor shave for me. No idea why, but it's really good. Works everywhere over the body (it's specifically designed to work on 'sensitive' regions).

I've experimented with hair removal creams too, but have never been satisfied with the results. Either the chemicals are too harsh and irritate the skin, or they're too weak and you're left with hit-and-miss results. I wouldn't recommend, but if you do decide to go this route, then make sure you do a patch test on the inside of your elbow or somewhere else equally sensitive first, at least 24 hours before you go ahead and put the stuff on your privates!

But, hands down, the best results I've ever had with nether region hair removal has been by being professionally waxed in a salon. This might not be an option for you depending on where you are located, but most big cities will have at least one salon offering 'intimate male waxing'. It also takes ... err... balls to go and have your balls waxed, but the results are amazing, and totally worth the expense and the pain involved. If you have a good technician, then it shouldn't be too painful. Don't get me wrong, it will hurt, but the results justify the few minutes of unpleasantness. I have literally never felt so smooth in my adult life. How long it lasts will depend on your body, but for me it lasts at least two months after treatment. When the hair does re-grow, it's smooth and fine with minimal irritation.

Aftercare is really important once you get waxed, you'll need to avoid padding up, working out or having sex for a day or two whilst the skin settles down, and you'll also need a decent routine of exfoliation to make sure that the pores don't get clogged up with dead skin or oil.

If anyone is interested, I can pull together some extra tips and things to consider when looking for a waxing salon :)

u/DeimosValvicious · 8 pointsr/onebag

I wanted to find something rechargeable but this one does the job well. I keep a beard and mostly use this for body grooming.

u/iamreeterskeeter · 8 pointsr/ATBGE
u/FeeFee34 · 7 pointsr/AskWomen

If you don't mind about 1mm of hair left, I love this trimmer. I have no hand-eye coordination, yet even I can do a really good job with it. As a horribly compulsive person I'd prefer no hair at all, but given the price and discomfort of waxing I'm cool with this.

For eye brows I love threading.

u/SwoleFox · 7 pointsr/steroids

I got a body groomer and I am never going back to shaving, look into it man.

u/OtherPlayers · 7 pointsr/funny

I mean for what it’s worth shirts do provide great sun protection; skin cancer kills!

That said there are plenty of people out there that find that attractive, so don’t worry too much about it. In a worst case scenario there are several really good body hair trimmers out there that aren’t too expensive; here’s my current favorite.

u/John_handcock · 6 pointsr/Blackfellas

Stop shaving with razors! Use electric trimmers.

What happens is a natural discoloration around the facial hair area tends to develop. I use a trimmer, its great. Although It does make me look "younger" simply because my skin is smooth/isn't discolored and (when fully shaven) it looks like I can't even grow any type of beard. I take looking 'young' as a compliment though.

u/[deleted] · 6 pointsr/loseit

lol Probably one of these. At least it's what I use.

Probably a helluva lot easier to work with too, without all the weight getting in the way.

u/Cobra-_-Commander · 6 pointsr/steroids

Yesterday got a delivery of my Mangroomer back shaver, a bottle of Veet, and the precum/giant-cum-loads trifecta of pygeum, lecithin and zinc.
Can’t wait to get my smooth af ass rimmed and paint some faces with huge loads.

u/nubivagance · 6 pointsr/asktransgender

Okay, normally hate product placement, but this thing was recommended to me a few months back and it has been revolutionary in terms of hard to reach shaving..

It looks doofy and the initial cost is a bit more than typical disposable razors, but the blades are designed in a way that makes it hard to get razor burn if you keep gentle pressure when using it and the weird handle is perfect for reaching back and around to get hard to reach places. I use it to take care of shoulder, back, and butt hair and haven't had any issues with it. The replacement blades are on par with most disprovable razor heads too.

u/Throw___A__Way · 5 pointsr/askgaybros

It's reddit, with a title that ambiguous you have to be prepared for these things. :P

On a more serious note, get one of those cheap disposable razor/trimmer combos and you can use the trimmer part if you don't want to shave or have the option of both. Advantages to trimmer part = no stubble, cheaper than clippers, reusable, and it's much harder to cut yourself than a razor. Also it's not all or nothing and you have more control over length of hair.

I use this Philips Norelco bodygroom for everything else

u/CalTigerr · 5 pointsr/india

This one is good.


Philips Body Groom BG1024 Battery Operated

u/SilverlightPony · 5 pointsr/asktransgender

Option 1: electric body shaver, like this one.

Option 2: waxing or similar.

u/Toast_Sapper · 5 pointsr/tifu


I have a hairy back, my wife used to have to shave it, a hand razor takes forever, clippers are faster but you have to use a razor after anyway or you still have stubble.

I ordered the thing above and not only is it much faster, but it's got a long enough handle that I can do it myself in front of the mirror (takes some practice and coordination)

But the best part is that you can do long sweeping passes and overall it's like 10-20x faster than using a regular razor.

This is a life improvement and I don't regret it for a second

u/Marshmellownightmare · 5 pointsr/BabyBumps

well...this exists... I got lucky, my husband likes to take on odd challenges, so he’s attempted painting toenails, and dyes my hair for me...he asked if he could try shaving my legs for me, I think just out of curiousity if he could do it...he’s WAY better at it than me. Lol So when I officially just cannot reach anymore...I think I’m covered!

u/Woodtraynexttome · 5 pointsr/ColoradoSprings

That just sounds brutal. I mean what do they even charge? Might consider this. It gets the job done but I'm sure waxing does a better job.

u/jellyrollo · 4 pointsr/sex

I had the same problem shaving with a wet razor. I highly recommend trying an electric razor made for intimate shaving, like this one they use in Japan. (You'd also want to get the trimmer, because the flat head shaver can only manage very short stubble.) I've been using them for a couple of years and couldn't be happier with the results. Baby smooth and no itchy bumps.

u/SmartyPants88 · 4 pointsr/sex

I do a lot of grinding on my bf when we have sex. Because of that I keep a patch of pubes relatively untouched right above my slit. It acts like a buffer and keeps things from getting too scratchy. I shave the rest with 5-blade razor designed for men. It works profoundly better than any ladies razor I've used. I should also mention that my hair down there is relatively sparse/thin so I am probably not as prone to bumps/redness/itching as other more thick-bushed women.

If your shaving routine is causing you to not have the kind of sex you want when you want it then good gravy, stop shaving! Buy clippers with a guard designed for trimming pubes. Or maybe only shave the lips and ass crack area instead of the whole pubic mound, and trim the rest. Or try something like this. There is a learning curve and it takes some getting used to but this thing works surprisingly well and never leaves bumps. Also gets pretty excellent reviews on so I'm pretty sure it's not just me.

Good luck!

u/kyden99 · 4 pointsr/askgaybros

I recently purchased this

Works pretty good.

u/BrivModan · 4 pointsr/malegrooming

I bought the BG2020 a few months ago and it is doing a pretty good job for the exact same use case you have. The addition of the foil shaver to the head makes it really good for the crotch. Can get down really close and I've had no ingrowns down there which would suck. Look on amazon i foung the BG2028 which i assume would be an upgrade over my version given the higher number. Seems to be reviewed better as well. It also lands in the same price range as the two you posted.

u/whyNadorp · 4 pointsr/Munich

I tried waxing but it’s painful and it’s likely your skin will be irritated for a couple of days. Don’t try the Brazilian one. What I do now is shave with an electric razor to 2-3 mm and use a blade razor where I don’t want hair at all. For the back you can use a razor with a long handle, something like this, but I never tried it. For the genitals you can use some shaving cream. Maybe the cream is ok for other areas also, but it depends on how your skin reacts to it.

u/aguyintheshadows · 4 pointsr/askgaybros

Proud owner of a Mangroomer here. Would definitely recommend.

Edit: Yes, the handle extends.

u/ppatra · 4 pointsr/india

Use a clotrimazole dusting powder like Abzorb or Candid. They'll help you to absorb the sweat and help with bacteria forming due to sweat.

Wear boxers, or normal brief. Don't wear tight boxer briefs or trunks.

If you want to shave then get a multigrooming trimmer and use the foil shaver that comes with it. Or purchase a standalone foil shaver:

Trim hair by feeling or get a mirror and stand over it to do the trimming by looking under at the mirror.

u/gilbertus · 3 pointsr/shaving

For the pubic area, best setup is a combination of the Cleancut PS335 T-Shape Personal Shaver to get hair down to stubble length, and then the Cleancut ES412 Personal Shaver to get the rest. Looks like they are also available as a Combo Pack at a better price.

The PS335's blade is still a little bit exposed, so you still need to go slow and pay attention. The foil screen on the ES412 is very effective, and I don't think I've ever been nicked by it. A little talcum-powder or baby-powder helps it glide smoothly as well.

If he's diligent, after the initial pass only the ES412 is needed to keep it maintained. I'm lazy though, and almost always require both because the ES412 just isn't effective if there is any length on the hair at all. It has to be really short stubble for it to work.

u/uconnhusky · 3 pointsr/ladyshavers

Seiko Clean Cut.

[You use this to trim it down](

And this to get real smooth

u/throwaway194526 · 3 pointsr/gay

Body shave gel... swimmers use it, safe everywhere. Gilette body is good.

Usually better to use body razor/trimmer (face hair and body hair are different), but a regular one will "get the job done".

I got a personal shaver to get what was left, use with talc (optional)

Lastly, follow with Shaveworks The Cool Fix to reduce irritation/bumps

If you want your hole beight and shiny like a porn star's ass, bumper brite supposedly lightens the hole for a more even/smoothed out skin tone

Source: literally my meet-prep kit when i swam (light competitive). Minus bumper brite, im not sure about that, and idk what the long-term use side effects are, use with caution.

u/SealTeamSith · 3 pointsr/asktransgender

I bought a Seiko Cleancut by chance once.. seriously the best personal shaver ever! Use it everywhere.. no nics! No razor burn! No ingrown hairs! NOTHING!

u/NymphoCpl614 · 3 pointsr/wicked_edge

I found this when /u/xeromal posted about Amazon opening a mens grooming store.

u/madlost1 · 3 pointsr/tattoos

Get yourself one of these (or something similar) and just trim it down. Less irritation this way and no annoying ingrown hairs to deal with while still removing enough hair to show your tattoos.

u/GentlemenPreferButts · 3 pointsr/bigdickproblems

I've been using the Gillette Fusion ProGlide Styler for a couple years and it really does the trick. It's on the cheaper side and held up no problem. Granted, I'm not shaving as regularly as I'd like to.

u/gingerfaerie17 · 3 pointsr/askwomenadvice

Totally normal!

Dunno what you're looking into but I personally use a trimmer to maintain (this one, if you're interested, bought it based on many very specific reviews about it being great for the nether regions lol: and find that works well enough for me. If you do buy a trimmer DON'T but a ladies one. Every one I've tried was infuriatingly bad, haha.

If I had the funds I'd absolutely do laser hair removal though. I got waxed for a while and loved it but budgets change so that's not really an option for me anymore, sadly...

Bottom line is, you've got options. Anything except trimming/laser means more exfoliation upkeep so you won't get ingrown hairs but are probably still fine options as well!

u/aModestOrb · 3 pointsr/xxfitness

I use a men's electric beard trimmer instead of shaving now. It gets close enough that it looks like I shaved a day or two before, but no razor burns or cuts, plus it only takes like five minutes. I use this one:

u/darconiandevil · 3 pointsr/india

Don't shave. Use this.

Maybe a one a bit less expensive. But you see the blades on top, that is what you want. The outer blades are rounded and prevent scratching. Also takes a bit of time but works everywhere, at any angle, for any lush forest you might have. The inner trimmer for that baby smooth feel!

u/nelsonmavrick · 3 pointsr/LifeProTips

Norelco Body Groom. I have had mine for like 4 years and it works like a charm. It is pretty user friendly I have only nicked myself a few times in the whole time I have had it. Good for manscaping also if you want to de-fur your butt lol.

u/bummer_camp · 3 pointsr/ftm

If you ever wanna deal with those pesky back hair patches, Amazon keeps recommending this handy dandy back shaver to me (based on my purchase history I guess??? I only have 3 back hairs, I'm not ready!)

u/white_rhino80 · 3 pointsr/wicked_edge

While you certainly can shave it with a DE I would recommend picking up a Bakblade. There is no better item on the market for taking care of body hair. I have gotten one for myself, my father, my brother in law and we all recommend them whenever this issue is brought up.

u/Blundero · 3 pointsr/malegrooming

u/TheOldGuy59 · 3 pointsr/Music

Unless you have boneless arms, scissors suck. This, however, is a good choice if you're cursed with excess body hair.

u/Alecz007 · 3 pointsr/malegrooming

Use a loofah in the shower or an exfoliating washcloth before you trim your body hair.

I use the Philips Norelco Series 1100 for the armpits, pubic area(shaft and balls) once a week. Once a month I use it between the butt cheeks. This is the trimmer: The trimmer is waterproof. It has 2 combs. One that trims at 0.5 mm and one that trims at 3 mm. I use the trimmer with the 0.5 mm on the armpits and pubic area(shaft and balls). It looks almost as close as it would be shaven. It runs on an AA battery. I use this Phillips AA battery: This is the battery that comes with the trimmer and it's also recommended by Philips. I use it once a week and the battery lasts me about 4 months. The trimmer is waterproof.


On the rest of my body(arms, chest, stomach, butt cheeks and legs) I use the Remington PG6255: The trimmer is waterproof. It has 5 combs: 1.5 mm, 3 mm, 6 mm, 9 mm, 12 mm. It has a foil shaver. It has a lithium ion battery. It charges in 4 hours and one full charge lasts for 1 hour.

Hope this helps.

u/CD_Claire · 3 pointsr/crossdressing

I used this thing: Philips Norelco Bodygroom

It comes with 2 attachments to adjust the length, but at the right angle you can get it to shave really close. The long handle and wrist strap help with the reaching problem, and the fact that it's a men's tool helps keep it discrete in the bathroom. YMMV

Not 100% smooth, but close enough for everyday, and no dryness/irritation:Philips Norelco Bodygroomer BG1026/60 - showerproof, easy to use, bidirectional trimmer

u/TxBlackLabelRx · 3 pointsr/houston

I don't have that much of back hair to get it waxed, but I like to keep it from getting wild so for the DIY types this has helped me.

Bro Shaver

It uses three cheaply priced double sided razor blades that you can flip over if they get dull.

It's like a back scratcher, you can use it dry or in the shower.

Some reported rusting of the screws, I sprayed mine with clear anti-rust, it has been in the shower since July with no issues.

Once a month I just soap up my back while in the shower and a few swipes done.

u/Badboiaccount · 3 pointsr/AskRedditAfterDark

I use a Phillips norleco bodygroom. It’s Here on Amazon. It’s a little pricey for shaving your man bits, but well worth it. Charge lasts forever, never nicks or gets clogged. I’ve had mine for almost a year, and it’s great. Different lengths for the trimmer, so you can trim literally anything. I even do my armpits on the longer setting once in a while to keep em neat. The foil trimmer is great for a close shave, without shaving and any ingrown hairs. Overall a great investment.

u/spacecadetdani · 2 pointsr/TwoXChromosomes

We have bought a few different electric razors over the years for personal hygiene and what works best for us is a man's electric beard hair trimming razor for the monthly trimming, and a Cleancut personal shaver for the in-between times.

u/dsoltesz · 2 pointsr/funny
u/AccidentallyLezlie · 2 pointsr/asktransgender

It's not cheap, but the Cleancut ES412 is the best shaver I've seen, period. I used one on my face for 15 years, but it's sturdy enough to work great on body hair too. It used to have the Seiko brand, but I think they're still made by the same company. Get it bundled with the PS335 Body Trimmer too for cutting longer hair down to stubble that the shaver can handle.

Maybe? or possibly get a stick and tape the razorblade to it and save 20 bucks.

I didn't really have any body hair aside from arms and legs prior to hormones so I can't really tell you how well hormones work in those areas. Either way, if you are still presenting as male, tons of cis guys get their back lasered so if you have the money to do it, no one will suspect anything if you go to have that done.

u/Triadis3 · 2 pointsr/malegrooming


I'm a hairy beast, every 4 weeks or so I use an electric trimmer on chest,legs,pubes,forearms. Too short looks weird, use the guide to maintain some fur.

Daily, I use a Razorba to keep the back hair away... Nobody likes back hair.

It shows you care about your appearance.

u/erichards · 2 pointsr/onebag

I use the Gillette fusion styler.
Very travel friendly and takes one AA battery which you can find anywhere in the world. Pretty damn powerful too. I actually use it at home when I'm not even traveling.

u/my3throw · 2 pointsr/AskMen

I've been using the Gillette Fusion Proglide Styler for my goatee and pubic region the past 2 years (trim both in the shower).

It works like a magic. On my balls it never hurts. I don't even bother with the attachments. I've tried other trimmers and they'll sometimes nick my scrotum.

u/flyingmountain · 2 pointsr/asktransgender

Gillette Fusion Proglide 3-in-1. It's about $14 right now on Amazon after using the coupon.

I think it works great. I've had mine for almost two years and am completely happy with it, especially for the low price.

She looks like that above.

Haha, all I was saying was those were the 3 things that made me look different in the second photo. As you can see in the first photo, I have very oddly patchy chest and stomach hair, so I decided to shape it up a bit for summer. Bought the above groomer, then quickly realized that it isn't so much a groomer as it is a wipe your body clean of hair-er. My girlfriend said she likes it, so I guess I am now adding "body grooming" to the list of hygiene tasks.

u/wildradish · 2 pointsr/TwoXChromosomes

I use this Phillips Bikini Trimmer because I prefer trimming with the shower going. The build quality is nice, and it's also wall charged!

Initially, I bought this which failed miserably. My hair was too straight/flat for the trimmer to properly cut, and the cutting mechanism... pulls(?) the hair a bit. That was not cool. Unfortunately it wasn't exactly a product I felt comfortable returning, haha.

Speaking personally, when I was fat, I cared much less about my appearance in general and therefore didn't care if I looked like a grizzly bear. Perhaps I even wanted all that grossness to be covered up.

Since getting in shape, I have started shaving my back and shoulders and trimming up the entire front. I wanna see dem gainz.

On a side note check this product out for hairy back syndrome:

Someone else asked the same question here (or on traa?) the other day and got a recommendation for the baKblade. I ordered one myself. My butt has never been smoother. (I'm also virtually hairless now except for my head and arms)

Exfoliate first, sanitize before and after, go slowly and carefully. You can cut yourself/get razor burn even with the guard built in. But it works very well.

I'm looking into opening the cartridge and swapping out the blades (some of the customer photos on Amazon show this) because it dulls quickly and replacements are pricey, and I have a ton of DE blades from before I grew my lazy depression denial beard.

Here is what I do and found it works for me.
I shave only when I am in the shower, after shampoo and during the time I let the conditioner work in my hair. I use Gillette Power Proglide for men.
I only had the kind of reaction you have when I'd shave dry, or out of the shower or using a shaving cream. Other blades than the one I linked didn't work good either.
Also, I absolutely do not put any type of body lotion after I shave. It's a free lotion day by all means no matter how gentle it is.

edit: I see someone suggested exfoliation. That didn't work for me and I found it iritating.

I work in finance and I regularly keep my shirt down to the second button, occasionally to the chagrin of some of my colleagues who think I've forgotten to do it up.

Chest hair is still considered to be somewhat crude in a workplace environment so I trim using a body trimmer. I found this one from Panasonic that I really liked because it comes with a few guards that are made for your body so it cuts down on the time that it otherwise takes to get the right look (lewk?) that you'd get from a caller.

The Philips Norelco Bodygroomer line is by far the best clippers I've owned. Not really BIFL as I'm on my second one due to the battery losing its capacity, but it still works after 7 years now. The biggest reason I recommend it is the gentleness of the the clippers on my balls and shaft, no nicks or pulls if you use the double clipper end. Don't even have to be that careful. The other end is great for the non-dick sideburns and around the ears, back, chest, etc.

u/NDMagoo · 1 pointr/malegrooming

I've tried several similar ones; by far the best are these from Amazon:

u/NotaFrenchMaid · 1 pointr/AskWomen

I have a trimmer I got off Amazon for like $20. It wasn't expensive, and it's literally impossible to cut yourself on which is fantastic since that is one area you do not want to nick. Two years later, still going strong. I have multiple girlfriends who have the same one and they also all swear by it. Edit: ok, it's more than $20 (I could've sworn it was less, maybe the price went up)

u/looseseal_2 · 1 pointr/PCOS

I posted this comment on another thread; I'm cutting and pasting an edited version here for you:

... I also did laser hair removal, and although it helped some, it wasn't the permanent, miracle fix I was hoping for.

I recommend trying the Seiko Cleancut Personal Shaver. I've used one for about 8 years now (in fact, I have two). It's affordable, about $50. You can buy replacement heads for $25, but I've never bought a replacement because I haven't needed to. It's powered by one C battery. It's reasonably quiet and easy to carry in a purse (I often take it with me to social events, to "touch up" discretely in the ladies' room when I need to).

... this thing is a dry shaver, so all you need is a little baby powder or corn starch on your skin (to absorb oils), and run the foil head over you skin and, "voila!" the hair is gone, at least for awhile (I use it twice a day). It gets very close to the skin; close enough that I don't have that five o'clock shadow look. And, because it's a dry shave, it has never irritated my skin.

... At the risk of sounding like an over-dramatic infomercial, finding the Cleancut was sincerely one of the most important moments of my life.

I hope you find something that will work for you! Good luck!

u/BrainsDontFailMeNow · 1 pointr/sexover30

u/DigitalSadhuAgain · 1 pointr/onebag

Gillette Fusion Proglide Styler—just the main trimmer—if you don't require a close shave. Runs on 1 AA battery (which can be a USB chargable penlite of course) and weighs only ~82 grams including battery. Shaves your facial hair back to like a five o'clock shadow, plus you can use it to trim your whiskers (edit: or maybe the word is sideburns? English is not my native language) and any other bodily hair. Takes up almost no space.

See it in this excellent video around 3:05 next to some toiletries, to get an idea of how small it actually is.

Yes it’s for men but it works and I think it’s stayed sharp longer than the Schick one which I also tried. My theory was that I wasn’t going to pay more for something that is higher priced just because it’s for women (pink tax). Also men’s beard hair is pretty thick and corse as is pubic hair.

Any kind of personal grooming kit would work. I use a Gillete kit at the moment. Very cheap, not the greatest but it works. or ~$19.99 at a local brick and mortar (CVS, walgreens, grocery store etc).

Comes with three combs. Start with the longest and work your way down until you find the right length. Very hard to mess it up.

Have you tried a bodygroomer? Like this:

They advertise them for men, and I must admit I didn't like it at first, but I've never had sensitivity issues/razor burn, or even as many ingrown hairs, since I started using an older model of this on my legs/privates. It doesn't get as close as a razor, which is annoying but probably why there doesn't seem to be that sensitivity reaction. It's also much easier, quicker, and costs less in the long run than razors.

I own this one

Or at least its european version, but with the very same head. As a fairly hairy guy with a lot of curly body hair I must say that I'm not very impressed, but I haven't yet been impressed by a body trimmer. With guards it works just fine and makes my fur look way better without much effort, even though the combs scratch a little. Without guards it gets a bit tricky when I navigate around my pecs and the even stubble is not always quite achievable. Shaving works OK, there is no other way for me to shave my balls quicker.

u/loki8481 · 1 pointr/askgaybros

EDIT: here's the bakblade

u/thaeli · 1 pointr/asktransgender

Personally, I find that shaving down to pricklies greatly reduces my hair-dysphoria. With a tendency to develop ingrown hairs, what you really DON'T want to do is anything that cuts the hair off below the surface - including any sort of waxing, epilation, etc. Shearing off to pricklies is safe, the hair is still long enough there that it won't trigger any folliculitis. Shaving even with the skin is somewhat riskier, but so long as you leave a teeny-tiny bit of stubble it will greatly reduce the risk of ingrown hairs.

I can get a pretty close shave with the "trimmer" part of this combo, down to very short pricklies. It's my personal favorite for regular every-other-day maintenance, though any beard trimmer should work fine and I have found a heavy-duty "buzz cut" beard trimmer useful for chopping through thick hair when I've neglected shaving for a couple weeks.

The "shaver" part works without irritation to get me completely smooth, too. It's of limited usefulness to me, since my pale skin / dark hair combination means that I have permanent shadow.. but is very nice when I want a specific small area to not have pricklies. (For me that means taking the extra time on boobs and forearms and leaving the rest prickly..)

Shaver/trimmer combo I use

Edit: huh, noticed that there is only one review on that speicifc link and it's pretty negative. If you click through to the individual product pages for the PS335 and ES412 there are more and better reviews on those pages. I linked to the combo pack because Reddit doesn't seem to like me putting more than one hyperlink in a single post..)

u/simobk · 1 pointr/AskMen

I should answer the question myself, so here it is, as detailed as I can.

I shave once a week because I believe my skin would not recover otherwise, but lately I've been wondering if it might not be actually hurting and if I would not benefit from not letting the hair grow too long.

As for my protocol, there was a post a while ago on Reddit where a stripper explained how she shaved down there. I took her method, and adapted it, plus my own little things :

  1. I shave under the shower. I find the steam helps.
  2. Wash and exfoliate face with water as hot as I can. I use Neutrogena Men Razor Defense Face Scrub
  3. Apply baby oil to face. I use Johnson's Baby Oil, Aloe Vera and Vitamin E
  4. Shave using a single pass in the direction of hair growth. I use Gillette Fusion Proglide Power Men's Razor and Aveeno® Skin Relief Shave Gel. The single pass doesn't get me a clean shave, but I can live with it.
  5. Wash with cold water
  6. Apply Dove Men+Care Hydrate + Post Shave Balm

    Finally, I try to apply Nivea Soft Refreshingly Moisturizing Creme every day.

    Even with all this, I usually look like this on the first 24h after shaving.

Philips Norelco Bodygroom Series 1100, BG1026/60, Showerproof Body Hair Trimmer and Groomer for Men

u/BasedOnAir · 1 pointr/answers

If you want to spend 20 on an electric, see this. It's $20 on Amazon and it is designed for body hair. It shaves 0.2mm or something like that from the skin and comes with a skin protector so it's safe for the scrotum for example.

So it isn't as close as a true shave but it's VERY VERY close to that, while being technically touchless so it's extremely safe on armpit skin and ballsack skin and, importantly for me, also safe near the anus because I have a hairy ass and I researched and bought this specifically for how to safely deforest my groin and ass and this is what I discovered and had recommended on r/malegrooming by like 5 different people. I got it and it has proven to be excellent.

It also has a longer guard you can put on to shave but leave a little length, useful for controlling male hair on the thigh or to shorten leg hair or something but not shave it skin close.

The blades are self sharpening and the only thing you'll need to replace is a single AA battery and you could use a rechargeable nihm AA like I do for zero waste.

FYI this is shower safe and is watertight however best results come using it when dry.

I have been very happy with the Philips Norelco BG7030 which I believe is the same model or similar to your Norelco 7100. I've never had a battery problem, it cuts evenly, and the adjustable guard goes from 3mm - 11mm. I trim every 7-10 days or so.

I can't tell from your post if you aren't even considering Norelco / Philips Norelco anymore, or are just curious if something better is out there now. FWIW I would buy this one again.

u/Gallifrasian · 0 pointsr/AskReddit

Bullshit. Don't mean to sound offensive, but the way you put it is very heavily opinionated and works for certain people. but the truth is Gillette is the top razor blade company for a good reason. Yeah, I've been to /r/wicked_edge and I tried those methods over the years, but it just doesn't get the job done well. Is it classy? Yes. Does it work? For some. Is it for everyone and their mother? Absolutely not. It's also god damn expensive. If anything, I would say that that entire subreddit is a scam.

In any case, Gillette Fusion pro Glide 3-in-1, which I'm sure many of you have heard of in a commerical at some point, is $18.47 on Amazon (I get mine at my local CVS for roughly $15.00, so look around). 1k+ reviews and only 16 1 star reviews, most of which are from users who don't know how to use/clean it properly or have received a damaged one from shipping. Mine lasts about 4-6 months with regular use (I shave every other day, depending on what I want as my look).

As for "foam in a can" (shaving gel?), it actually softens and makes your hair more flexible/smooth while it's on, preventing pulls and tugs. It especially helps when shaving against the grain. Safety razors, albeit cheap and disposable, can't shave against the grain by itself without tugging/pulling at hairs. It's also prone to rusting, depending on the material, which can lead to infections in exposed areas (ie. places where the tugging/pulling of hairs leaving holes/scars), even if you don't cut yourself with the rusted blade part.

Not going to lie, the gillete fusion is pretty awesome.

All it literally does is vibrates while shaving. But that vibration helps keeps the razor from clogging and the shave feels better whether it is closer or not. Plus you have a side burns trimmer.

Try a circular foil razor

You just have to do a REALLY close trim before you use the electric razor.

Don't waste your time with those horrible 'bodygroom' razors.
