Benefits of shaving your Testicles
For men who sweat a lot, especially in their private parts, hair promotes bad odors. In addition, perspiration promotes the arrival of bacteria, which is not great. And it can even be very embarrassing in certain situations, after a long day at work for example and when you have to unpack the package in front of your partner! Unless you have time to take a shower before!
For aesthetic reasons, it is still prettier to have hairless testicles rather than hair that goes all over the place. Especially since the hairs of the testicles are fine and of different lengths. Thus, some men will decide to shave their testicles to have the most beautiful balls possible!
Shaving the testicles can increase sexual desire: the testicles having very thin skin, they are considered an erogenous zone in men. Moreover, offering perfectly smooth testicles can also make your partner want to take care of them more carefully! And without having the hairs in the mouth! Yes, it’s important!
If you are waxing your private parts, and especially if you shave your pubis, it is necessary to shave your testicles to provide a certain homogeneity.
But it is necessary to take into account certain precautions when shaving the testicles. The goal is not to shave your testicles and end up having lots of cuts and bleeding. No, the goal is still to present his family jewels in their best light!
How to shave your testicles safely
More and more men want to have perfectly smooth testicles, without having the slightest hair on them. It must be said that the hair has less and less on the coast, and we are looking for all the means to remove them. Thus, male hair removal has many followers, and in particular the hair removal of the testicles.
However, some men don’t want to hear about hair removal at all. Depilation of the testicles with wax or with a depilatory cream is out of the question, they prefer to shave their testicles. Yes, but now, the testicles are a very delicate area and it is important to handle the razor well on this area.
Here are my tips for shaving your testicles properly.
1. Get the right tools
You can’t use the same razor you used for your face for your testicles. You need something dedicated to the task. And for that, I would recommend two things: an electric trimmer or a safety razor. An electric trimmer will cut the hair very close to the skin without breaking the surface, so you get the smooth look and feel.
A safety razor will tackle shaving with just one blade instead of 3-5. You should probably learn how to shave your face, too .with a safety razor before trying it on your testicles. There’s a method to getting it right, given the weight of the handle and the sharp blade.
The following few tips apply especially if you’re using a safety razor rather than an electric clipper, since skin preservation rules don’t apply as much if you don’t actually scrape the surface of the skin (which is the case with an electric mower). But there is something for everyone.
2. Pre-cut the area
You still need this trimmer, even if you plan to shave with a razor. Now is the time to cut all the hair on your testicles, down to a centimeter or ideally less, so that you can shave them off more easily. Similarly, you can’t just tackle your beard with a razor; you have to reduce it first so that you can manage the shave afterward. Do not touch the skin with the trimmer if you can avoid it, and stretch the skin while cutting.
3. Take a hot shower
Just like when you shave your face, you need to warm up the skin of the scrotum and prepare it for shaving. This relaxes the skin, warms your body, and stimulates blood flow to the testicles, so they’re loose and flexible for your shave, instead of climbing up into your stomach like it’s minus 20 degrees. You should also open the pores before applying a razor to your skin, and relax each hair to make cutting easier. Also, be sure to wash the area thoroughly.
4. Apply shaving oil
Now is not the time to mess up – you need something translucent so you can track your progress and shave with precision. A shaving oil will do the trick, nourishing the skin and softening the hair, preparing both for the razor blade. It will also make things a bit slippery, so remember to take it easy.
5. Pull the skin tight.
This is the case with electric clippers and safety razors: you have to hold the skin of the scrotum and stretch it so that it is smooth and easy to trim. This will prevent creases and edges from getting caught in the teeth of your trimmer or blocking the safety razor.
6. Take it easy
Whatever your method, it is best to be slow and steady. You should not rush to shave your testicles. Take your time and keep your hands calm. If you cut yourself under there, you might put your sex life on hold for a few days.
7. Rinse with cold water
Once you’re done, rinse your testicles with cold water (a shower seems like the easiest solution here). This will close the pores and minimize any ingrown hairs. (Can you imagine treating ingrown hair on your testicles? Argh!)
8. Apply aftershave balm
When you’re done, apply a generous layer of aftershave balm to refresh the skin and protect it from bacteria buildup in your sweaty crotch for day or night. It also nourishes the skin and prevents irritation and burning, without stinging.
9. Apply lotion daily to keep them smooth.
Hair removal is only half the effort to keep your testicles smooth. You also need to keep the skin smooth, and a daily refreshing lotion will do the trick while counteracting odorous bacteria and preventing irritation.
Things to avoid when shaving your testicles
Too frequent shaving increases the risk of irritation, redness, and pimples. At the beginning, it is indicated to space the shaves of a period of 5 days. Thereafter, we recommend that you do not shave your testicles more than twice a week.
In addition, not using shaving foam for the pubis promotes cuts and infections. Some opt for moisturizing shower gel: it may be better than nothing… but it’s still not ideal.
Choose a suitable razor and remember to change the blades regularly to avoid hurting yourself. Likewise, there’s no need to press hard on your razor or pass the blade 10 times over the same spot.
Finally, moisturizers that contain dyes or perfume should be avoided. As mentioned above, favor natural products such as talc or even alum stone.
