How to shave your balls – safely!

So you’d like your cubes to be so shiny smooth your girlfriend can see herself in them.

That’s not going to happen with that thicket of Ewok fur down there. A survey by Philips revealed that 80% of women like a guy to whack his sack weeds back. We don’t mean the hair above your dick though. Trim it by all means, but not to the point where you look like a 10 year old boy. Real women like real men.

There are reasons other than impressing your lady friend to keep a smooth set too. Not only does it make everything look bigger down there, it’s also hygienic! Hairs create a home for odor-causing bacteria so the less hair down there, the less of that musty ball smell you and any prospective scrotal inspectors will have to contend with.

So let’s get to it:

First rule in shaving your scrotum,


Splash your fellas with cold water first. Why cold? This helps to tighten your sack and makes shaving a whole lot easier. Shaving a loose sack can cause all sorts problems as it’s near impossible to get a smooth glide over the surface of the skin when it’s loose and malleable.

Trim long hair. If you’ve never shaved your balls before, or if you have a lot of hair or long hair, trim it first to make it easier to get the blade through later. A pair of scissors or a body hair trimmer are fine, but once again be careful!
Body trimmers (at the lowest setting) can cut your skin if you’re not taking extra care. And there’s nothing pleasant about ball sweat getting into nicks all day on a cut sack.

Once you’ve trimmed the hair back it’s time to get the razor out and polish them off!

Apply shaving cream. Cool it down in the fridge for extra help in keeping your balls tight.

Start shaving with short gentle strokes. Don’t go hacking away at your nads.

Halfway through, rinse off so you can see where you’ve missed any bits.
Apply some more shaving cream and take care of the rest.

Remember to get the entire area, including the bit between your balls and backside. You don’t want a wispy beard hanging behind your newly smooth nuts.

Finally, you could apply a product like Clinique’s Post Shave Healer afterwards to minimize razor burn.

Note: Guys often complain of bumps or rash the first few times they shave, but after a few days everything settles down and you tend you get less irritation with regular shaves.

Remember, if you’d like your girlfriend or guy friend to gargle your cubes without stopping every 10 seconds to pull hair out of their mouth, at least give them the courtesy of smoothing things over down there.

Happy shaving!
