if your on a cycle definately dont get waxed....the hormones can cause the waxing to irritate your skin....think about having a shave rash times 10 that doesnt go away for months.....just shave...you can get one of those salt scrubs that your mom and girlfreind use in the shower.....rub it on the area you are about to shave and it scrubs off the dead skin cells...this will greatly minimize even get rid of the shave rash and ingrown hairs....also make sure you use some kind of post shave product....i just use straight alcohol...but whatever you want....

I use an electric razor and it works great. I'm not very hairy by nature though.

This might help; as a female, chick, woman, whatever, I shave daily in the shower and what keeps my skin SUPER smooth and has killed all razor burn has always been the 100% Extra virgin Olive oil rub down after. You will not smell like a cake. Flies and cats will not follow you. I thought at first that surely, people would ask if I worked in a restaurant but once you rub that into your skin right after a hot shower and shave, it just soaks it up and the greasy feeling is gone, but the shine stays awesome. I do it at night and when I wake up, everything is smooth. And women shave more tender areas, so take it from me, it will keep you competition smooth and won't stain your sheets or clothes. And if you happen to smell like a cake; well, better than garlic right?

That's funny. I don't do it in there though! If the cat accidentally fell in, that would surely win me something on Youtube. I do it all post-shower. Controlled amounts, like a massage oil session. Just FYI, if you walk by your dog, he will lick you.

A buddy of mine used NAIR. Worked pretty well..he was a hairy bastard. It gave him a slight rash that lasted 2 days then was gone.

Primrose oil, I'll try that. I'll be at Whole Foods this weekend too to buy those huge bulky homemade bars of soap that I always swear that I too can make and even better but never do. That damn Fight Club movie. They made it seem all so easy.

I could have been a double for chewbacca "gwaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrhhhh" given my genes and body hair.
Say what you will but I've been shaving for years and to be honest never had a problem. If you are shaving things besides your face do it in the shower and edge gel seems to work JUST fine. Don't shave if you are about to go sweat it up, because you will clog those pores and they will get red and irritated - razor burn; which looks nasty and is not comfortable.
Yes unfortunately due to my ferral genetic make up (lol) I get my back - shoulders waxed about every 8 weeks or so (If I don't it's fn gross! I've never met a hot chick who likes a guy who can comb his own back hair - LMFAO, ok it's not that bad but hopefully you get my point) and I get red bumps every time (been doing this for nearly 10 years). It is the nature of the beast. that is waxing. The red bumps are a few things, 1. the pores getting clogged, 2. mild infection, which will go away once the hair pushes back through (this I was told by both my doctor and dermatologist and there is a name for it yet it escapes me at this moment) 3. ingrown hairs (really, really painful), 4. Possible irritation due to the wax (but that would result in your SKIN being red NOT red bumps - red bumps are an indication that the follicle is having issues see 1,2,3 above.)
However I think Mooch said something about months, the red bumps I experience only last on average 10 days and again I've been doing this for 10 years. I'm so use to the pain I nearly dozed off last time I got the sht ripped out.
The funny thing is some folks think I'm all roided out because of the way my waxing of shoulders and back gives me a bad break out - LOL.
Tanning helps with the red bumps, the UV stunts the growth of bacteria but also opens you up for skin cancer too; what's worse bacne for a few days or skin cancer?
Wow, ok TMI maybe but I hope this helps.

I just use a Norelco BG2030. It'ss amazing, gets everything pretty bare and makes it extremely hard to clip your scrotum, very safe. I would link to it but this is my first post.

I must have lost my book on "Rules You Have to Follow to be a Man"
I sure hope "not caring what others think nor needing their approval" is in there, or I'm screwed double time.

I tried that 'nair/veet' stuff (rub on cream that dissolves the hair).
Works pretty well and prevents any razor rash, I'd go for a wax though mate if you want the hair gone for a decent length of time.
