How To Properly Groom Your Perineum
If you’re reading this post, you more than likely know your fair share about manscaping. You’ve probably been faithfully shaving your package and admiring its polished glean in the mirror every morning you wake up.
Eventually, however, this isn’t enough. Every time that you go to shave your balls, you’re constantly annoyed by that seemingly impossible-to-shave area behind your balls.
Most often referred to as “the taint,” this area is scientifically known as your perineum. It is the small gap between the back of your scrotum and your anus. This tender area serves as a wall between your two waste-depositing organs and contains the muscles that control everything from ejaculation to the way you poop.
Since this is such an important area, our bodies have naturally evolved to protect it. That’s why it’s so hard to reach. Your perineum is tightly covered by the muscles of your lower gluteus maximus, and if you want to shave it, then you’re going to have to do a little bit of maneuvering.
Why Should I Shave My Perineum Anyways?
Before we get into the step-by-step process of how to start shaving your taint, let’s discuss some of the reasons why you may want to consider doing it in the first place. While some dermatologists recommend leaving some hair down there to reduce chafing and regulate your natural sweating, you certainly don’t need a giant annoying patch of thick, coarse hair between your legs at all times.
Shaved Taints Are Smoother
Although it’s not something that most men would admit to each other, we’ve all had a time when our pubic hairs or perineum hairs have gotten in our way. Maybe we’re on a run or sitting the wrong way in a a chair, but all it takes is for the wrong hair to get pinched the right way, and you’ll find yourself in extreme discomfort.
When you shave your perineum, you don’t have to worry about your hairs getting pinched or caught-up. The one thing to take note of, however, is that you’ll need to shave on a regular basis if you want everything to remain smooth. Few things in life are quite as uncomfortable as prickly pubic hairs poking the inside of your butt cheeks.
As long as you remember to shave your taint at least once every 2-3 days, though, you’ll be rewarded with a silky smooth feeling whenever you’re walking. You won’t have to worry about painful chafing or prickling.
Women Love A Well-Groomed Man
Let’s face it; no woman wants to put her face or tongue anywhere near a bunch of long pubic hairs. Maybe you’ll find a trooper who won’t mind, but for the majority of women, this is a turn off. It shows that you don’t care much about your personal hygiene or grooming. If you want your full package to be treated like royalty, then you’re going to need to start giving it the royal treatment.
When a woman encounters a man who not only has well-groomed cock and balls, but who has a cleanly-shaved perineum as well, then you’re in for a wild night. It shows that you have the self-pride and personal confidence to shamelessly show off everything that you have.
When you combine natural confidence with a well-groomed package, then you’ll have no problem impressing and pleasing any woman you can imagine.
You’ll Smell Better
While we welcome the warm Summer days, afternoons at the beach, and evening barbeques, the Summers make us sweat. The area that most men sweat the most is between their butt cheeks and from their balls.
This is bad news for any man who wants to smell clean and fresh all day long. One of the reasons why you experience excessive body odor is because of the hairs on the underside of your balls and your perineum.
These hairs trap sweat, debris, skin cells, and are some of the most rank spots for bacteria to feed and develop on your body. Not only does this make you smell bad, but it can result in topical skin irritation, chafing, ingrown hairs, and pimples. By properly shaving your perineum, you can avoid almost all of these unpleasantries.
How To Groom And Shave Your Perineum
So, now that you know all of the wonderful benefits of shaving your perineum, it’s time to go about the hard task of learning how to shave it. We’re not going to lie, the first time is probably going to be difficult. You’re going to be shaving at a new and often awkward angle, and you’re likely going to miss a few hairs along the way.
Give it a few tries, though, and you’ll be a pro before you know it. Let’s get started!
Get Yourself A Good Shaving Kit
Before you run up to your local Wal-Mart and get the cheapest dollar razor that you can find, stop and think for a second. Do you really want to risk using a cheap razor on the most sensitive skin on your body?
Please do yourself and your skin a favor and head over to the Manscaped.com store and pick up The Perfect Package. At just under $50, this is the ultimate male personal grooming kit. It comes with the following items:
- An ergonomic electric razor
- A high-quality stainless steel safety razor
- Deodorizing moisturizer
- And disposable shaving mats
This kit is a steal, and similar kits are sold in department stores for upwards of $150. The razors and shaving products are designed to perfectly shave even the most sensitive skin. You’ll also want to pick out a good shaving cream to use. Barbasol is a great option, but you can also find specialized shaving creams specifically meant for sensitive skin and genital areas.
Stretch And Get Yourself Into Position
As we mentioned, your perineum is going to be a bit hard to reach. The best way to shave this region of your body is to sit on the edge of a chair with your legs spread. This will open up your muscles and help to flatten the skin of your perineum, making for a quicker, smoother shave. However, you might find a different position that works better for you. Keep experimenting until you find a position that you can be comfortable in.
To maintain the best control of the razor, you’ll want to shave outwards. We recommend shaving in a V-shape, slowly moving your razor from the center of your perineum and out towards your butt cheeks. Shaving forwards or backwards in this awkward position can result in some nasty cuts, so it’s best to shave with the grain in firm, smooth movements.
Don’t Forget To Clean Your Skin
Now that you’ve finally finished the dangerous and hard part, it’s time to take a breather. You did it! Hopefully you managed to do it without cutting yourself, but you’ll still want to make sure to apply some cleansing toner to make sure that you skin doesn’t become irritated and develop razor burn later. We recommend using Manscaped’s Crop Reviver Toner. It gets deep into pores to clean them and then soothes and tightens the surface of your skin.
Final Thoughts And Tips
Shaving your perineum doesn’t have to be hard. If you already have your method and technique down for shaving the rest of your package, then your taint shouldn’t be that much harder. The main difference is that you’ll have to work some angles and stretch a bit to get to this hard to reach area.
The more that you shave it, though, the easier and quicker it will get. In return for your grooming efforts, you’ll be rewarded with a silky smooth taint that not only looks attractive to women, but that also feels incredibly comfortable.
So what are you waiting for? It’s time to start shaving like a man.
