Why Do Male Porn Stars Manscape?

Porn really introduced the modern world to the art of manscaping. Porn stars were way ahead of the crowd in this. Some people speculate that it was all for filming purposes. Others believe it’s all about the impact on sex itself. We’re here today to demystify it all and explain exactly why male porn stars started this trend.

Size

There’s no delicate way to put this. Any man can get in shape (especially if it's his job) and at least look relatively fit. Porn stars aren’t cast for their excessive good looks. On the other hand, there’s not a ton that can be done to make a man’s stuff bigger. For the most part, you get what you’re born with.

As you have no doubt seen, male porn stars tend to have some pretty massive man meat. Sometimes it’s downright ridiculous. Even with so much God-given talent, these guys still have to do everything they can to impress the camera. It may add pounds to the body, but it rarely flatters a penis.

This brings us back to the main point. Everyone who has entertained the notion of manscaping has been told that it makes your junk look bigger. Everyone who has participated in manscaping agrees with this notion. When a man’s primary role in an industry is to be as big as he can for as long as he can, manscaping is an inevitability.

Presentation

Looking big might score you points in the amateur world, but it’s not good enough for high-quality productions. If they’re going to invest tens of thousands of dollars into lighting and filming equipment, they’re also going to spare some effort for making the stars look good. This includes regular makeup and skin treatments. It also includes manscaping for the gents.

This is where studying porn can teach you some things. There is still a bit of a standard in the industry to have men as bare and naked as possible for film. But, if you explore a bit, you’ll see some alternative stylings that show that pubic hair can be aesthetic. Porn directors may have differing opinions on this, but the universal agreement is that (fetishes aside) unkempt bush is a no go.

So, if you feel like you’re short of good ideas on how to style your own bush, you can do some legitimate research on your favorite porn site. We’re experts, and we’re officially giving you permission to watch porn (just not at work). You’re welcome.

Making it Match

So far, we’ve been talking about bush. You can also assume that a male porn star’s ass will be smooth for similar reasons. It’s traditionally sexier than ass hair. If you really think about it, we all agree with that. The thing is, though, that porn star manscaping involves a lot more than just the hair below the belt. We talk about it all the time, but a lot of you still don’t get it. If you have completely bare balls and the burliest chest in the world, you’re going to look super weird. It’s enough that some women will hit the brakes full stop when they see you completely nude.

Going back to professional presentation, porn directors understand this. If you pay attention, you’ll see consistency with all of the guys’ body hair. The chest, back, pits and lower regions will all be comparably manscaped. Keep that in mind the next time you try to skip your full-body grooming routine.

Handling the Mess

Can we be honest for a minute? Sex is a messy endeavor (at least when it’s good). We know that some of you reading this are virgins trying to get an edge to lose that card, but most of you have at least some experience in the bedroom. So, we’re going to skip the disclaimer for the squeamish and talk about something you already know.

Think back to the most intense, longest lasting sexual marathon of your life. If it was even halfway decent, you left a hurricane of destruction. Aside from the dry mess of clothing and what not being strewn around the place, there were likely some stains you wouldn’t want your parents to see. 

Now, compare that to an average porn film. These guys are regularly going at it for far longer than even makes sense to most of us. Now think about how film works. For every minute of film you see, there are usually three minutes shot. That’s true in porn too. This is not a clean industry, and having pubes makes it even harder to get everything nice and tidy for the next shot. It’s one of the compelling reasons a lot of porn stars go completely bald down there instead of sporting some interesting hedge designs.

Manscaping Like a Pro

Now that you have some good reasons why porn stars manscape, you might have a stronger notion of how you want to go about things. Maybe you’re a real tiger in the sack and you’re worried about the mess. Perhaps you just want to look your best. Or, you’re like most guys and you don’t mind your junk appearing a little larger at first glance. Whatever your motivation, we have some tips to help you find your inner porn star.

The Ideal Trim

Guys ask us the same few questions all the time. One of the most common is “How short should I trim my balls?” We wish there was a single, universal answer that we could give. We would plaster it to our website and take care of this question forever. We might even take out a full-page ad on the New York Times or whatever just to get the word out. Unfortunately for you and us, there is no universal answer. That’s why we include multiple guards with the Lawn Mower 2.0.

There are two tips to help you discover this answer for yourself. The first is that when you’re still unsure, you should start with the longest guard and gradually work your way down. It takes a while, but it gives you a chance to see progress and decide when to stop.

The second tip is to trim as closely as possible any area you plan to shave. For a lot of guys, this includes the balls. The 2.0’s SkinSafe technology will let you really clip that hair to a minimum before you grab a razor. We suggest you take advantage.

The Best Shave

We just spent a lot of time talking about porn stars, so we’d like to take this moment to protect you from a common mistake. Most guys don’t look good going completely bald. Even among the porn stars you’ve seen, most look better with a little bush down there. It adds character.

Maybe an easier way to understand this is to go all the way with the lawn analogy. The most beautiful lawns are not ground into dirt. They maintain different layers of plant growth, but all of it is built around clean, deliberate lines and a central theme. Your Plow can mimic this design philosophy, but you have to come up with the big picture. Google is both your best friend and worst nightmare if you feel the need for research.

Making it Painless

The other most common question we get is “Does it hurt?” We won’t lie to you. If you don’t take your manscaping seriously and do things the right way, it can hurt a lot. The good news is that proper lawn care is actually pretty easy. The bulk of it stems from showering with a good soap and actually exfoliating. The good soap is called Crop Cleanser and it benefits from a patented technology called Active pH Control. Without going down the rabbit hole of science, it’s formulated to specifically help your junk withstand the irritation that otherwise plagues manscaping. The next time you see a shaved porn star without red, bumpy skin, you know that they’re utilizing a similar technique to protect their jewels.

Daily Upkeep

Crop Cleanser does the heavy lifting, but there are two more things you can do to make your stuff feel divine. The first is use ball deodorant. If you really stop and think about it for even a second, you’ll realize that ball deodorant is obvious and should have been in your hygiene routine all along. When your ball deodorant is Crop Preserver, you’ll find that it exceeds your expectations and makes you feel wonderful down there. 

The second tool is called Crop Reviver. It’s only slightly less obvious when you consider that it is basically a gentle, designed-for-your-balls aftershave. It’s actually more than that because you can give yourself a little spritz at any time and it will keep you fresh. 

Well, that covers this topic for the day. You know why male porn stars manscape, and you have the tools and knowledge to match their best efforts. Keep checking with Manscaped.com. We’ll be sure to update you with more crucial knowledge on a regular basis.
