How often do you shave downstairs? - August 17th 2011, 10:35 AM

I'm having a conversation with my girlfriend, who thinks the fact that I shave downstairs every two days is too often so I'm asking you, how often do you shave downstairs? Am I the only person who does this? Does anyone agree it's too often?

It depends on how quickly your hair grows.

I have to do mine every 2-3 days. I only neaten up the edges though, I never shave the whole area.

I shave completely downstairs every 4-5 days or so. My hair grows quickly, but not that quickly. I shave it all off. I hate having hair there.

Re: How often do you shave downstairs? - August 17th 2011, 05:40 PM

I used to do it every day but I noticed I was getting irritated and had a lot of razor burn

Now I'm just lazy and shave whenever I anticipate sex xD
Generally once a week is enough for most women.

Do as you prefer though. Nothing is weird about it.

Uhh depends. Having sex with a prickly area is uncomfortable for my boyfriend, just as his prickly area causes irritation for me. I try to shave whenever I think we'll have sex, but really it causes razor burn so I hate doing it.

I gave up.
Okay not really.. It's only been like five days and I'm sure I'll cave like in two more.
Usually I go every four or five days? But then I kept getting ingrown hairs! It was irritating so I stopped.
Anyways.. Yeah..that's my random answer (:

I never shave my "downstairs". I think stubble is gross and prefer to trim. I trim every two weeks or so, or if I'm going swimming. Otherwise, it's not like I'm getting much action and no one sees it but me, so....

I do mine just before whenever I see my boyfriend or whenever I feel like it if I don't see him for a long time (as i tend to only see him at weekends anyway so it can be anything from 5 days to a few weeks before we see each other so that's how often i do it )

I think I must be doing something wrong because if I shaved every two days I would die from razor burn :s (okay that's a bit of an exagerration, but that's how it feels!) I try to do it every 4 dayss or so, but especially if I'm seeing my boyfriend.

I use that hair removal cream stuff...probably once a week or every 2 weeks. Works well for me and I avoid razor burn which I imagine would be very painful! I use it more regularly in summer when I know I'm going to be pretty much living in my bathers, and when I'm in a relationship.

My hair grows sooo quickly, and if it didn't hurt so bloody much I'd do it every 2-3 days as well.

I think you girls who say it hurts should invest in a sharper razor and make sure you've lubricated the area sufficiently with lots of shaving foam/gel (and keep adding more as your shave).

I know that some people just use soap, but it really doesn't do the job on your privates very well!

Re: How often do you shave downstairs? - August 19th 2011, 02:31 AM

Honestly, I think that may be a bit too often.
For me, I shave the entire thing, buttox and all, so it is a bit painful but I only do it about once a month. I'm thinking of just using Veet from now on because I have some left and I don't want to waste it. I usually just use razors for shaving my armpit and legs anyways and since I have used razors for shaving down there, it's uncomfortable and a bit painful because I bleed.
With Veet it can burn but hey it works. I'm not recommending it but I'm just saying it's what I use. xD

I think it honestly depends on how fast your hair grows and how smooth you like it. I shave every two to three days. I like it nice and smooth; don't like having the pricklies pop up.

I shave every day, I normally don't get razor burn if I shave in the shower with the water constantly going and if I put cream on after but my hair grows extremely fast and I get bad ingrown hair if I don't shave every day

Mixed responses then but as said, I guess it depends on the person and hair growth. I do it that often because if I didn't, I feel it just gets irritating and itchy which I can't stand but I will occasionally get lazy and leave it a few more days but generally, I can't stand the irritation which is why I do it so often.

depends entirely on when I'm seeing my boyfriend. every few days, maybe around every four or five? i want to wax or something but haven't been able to do very well on my own with it...veet didn't work well either...for some reason it just "cut" the hair right at the base...
glad to see that lots of other girls just do it when they're going to see their significant others

Depends, but it's usually about once a week I think? It makes my shower a lot longer because it terrifies me so I tend to wait as long as I can haha. :-P

As rarely as possible. Only if I'm going swimming, and then I don't even do it all - just the edges.

Re: How often do you shave downstairs? - August 28th 2011, 02:46 PM

I've tried shaving a few times, but I usually just end up with razor burn, which is unattractive - and the stubble is uncomfortable, so I gave up. I usually just keep things neat and tidy. I'll shave around the edges and trim things down, but that's about as far as I go.
As for how often? hmmm, about twice a week, or whenever I know I'll be in a bikini or with my boyfriend.

I don't think there's anything unusual about how often you shave. Everyone is different. Most people can't shave that often because they get razor burn, but if it's working for you then that's just fine .
