Maybe you’re finally ready. You’ve seen the below-the-waist male grooming trend explode, and you’re going to jump in and start trimming your pubes and give your groin a new lease on life. Maybe you’ve already started, and you’re just trying to up your game. Perhaps you still have a few reservations about taking a trimmer or razor to your ball sack. That’s understandable. Let’s sweep those away. Below-the-waist male grooming) is essential to the modern man. Women and men have made it clear that they prefer a trimmed groin and a managed, fit body. If you want to get lucky, you have to put in the leg (and groin, haha) work. Beyond that, the research has shown that men who groom are more confident and more successful in their personal and professional lives. So don’t you think it’s time to manage that ridiculous bush of yours? We do. Say goodbye to the 1970s and welcome to the 21st century, where men are trimmed and confident.
It starts with a simple trim, and when you follow our advice, you can tackle it with little worry about cutting yourself or looking ridiculous.
Learn from the Ladies
Let’s be honest for a moment, shall we, gentlemen? Women have been handling their land down under for a lot longer than men—thousands of years, to be somewhat exact. While there are apparent differences between the sexes, we can learn some essential lessons from their time in the grooming trenches. The most important of these lessons is skincare. While skincare application differs between men and women, keeping things moisturized, pH balanced, and free of agitation goes a long way for managing pubic hair for both men and women.
In practice, this means you should wash your stuff just before and after a trim. Having clean, dry hair follicles makes them easier to manage and helps you get your trim the length you want. Smoother skin creates less irritation and enables you to avoid snags and discomfort. Also, maintaining the proper pH is more important than you think; this helps create a protective outer layer to the skin and fights bacteria that can cause skin problems such as inflammation, and more seriously, skin infections. Achieving all of this is simple. Wash with Crop Cleanser™ hair and body wash from MANSCAPED™ regularly. This hair and body wash is effective, yet not too harsh, on your skin down there. After trimming and shaving, apply a moisturizing ball deodorant like Crop Preserver™, then a spritz of Crop Reviver™ toner whenever you maintain your man parts. The moisturizing deodorant will hydrate your skin and keep it from sweating and stinking all over the place. And Crop Reviver is like giving your balls a long drink of water when they’re thirsty. Refreshing is the word. That should take care of it for most guys. But let’s talk about how to trim your groin hair safely in more detail.
While we did learn from the experience of our female counterparts, not all of their lessons apply. We have different parts, so these different parts necessitate different techniques. When they groom, ladies might prefer pubic hair scissors or a lady razor, while we avoid them at all cost. Women also often use a comb to tease the pubes out and make them easier to cut. We need our spare hand to manage our junk and keep it clear. Women often sit to trim and shave. The existence of male reproductive parts forces us to stand, kneel, or squat. Ok, you probably shouldn’t squat like you’re doing squats at the gym. You don’t want to get tired and start shaking mid-task. Shaking doesn’t help when trying to trim your groin hair safely. '
Use The Lawn Mower 3.0
Instead, we can replace those tools and concepts with our own. Trade scissors for The Lawn Mower™ 3.0 trimmer from MANSCAPED; this compact electric trimmer is not only cordless, but it’s designed specifically to shave male anatomy. You can tell just by holding it in your hand. It minimizes the risk of cuts or other accidents, and it has multiple length settings. Speaking of those settings, always start on the longest if it’s your first time. We often have to inform newbies of this: very short pubic hair is prickly, and it will irritate your balls (and anyone’s hands who are touching them). The only remedy is to let it grow, and that can take a while, so ease your way down to the ideal length. Luckily, The Lawn Mower 3.0 trimmer gives you this option.
As for the technique itself, there is no real mystery or hidden secret. Run the trimmer gently over your pubes while being careful of your man bits. Even though you want to have a clean groin when you start, it’s easier to trim dry hair than wet. Shaving might be easier in the shower, but until you have a good feel, trimming is best done elsewhere, which is why we recommend trimming and shaving on dedicated shaving mats before heading into the shower to wash those pesky pubes away.
Clean-Up After Your Mess
That brings us to an important concept: cleanup. Pubes are wild little beasts. You learned that the two times you actually cleaned your bathroom. Trimming is going to be a huge hassle unless you have a plan from the start. The Magic Mat from Manscaped simplifies the plan. Trim your stuff while you’re situated above the mat. It’ll catch the pubes so you can roll it up and throw it out. Simple.
That’s really all there is to it. Not too difficult, is it? Your instincts will lead you to protect your junk, and you’ll be fine. We think most men instinctually know how to trim your groin hair safely, but this piece is for those who don’t and those who need a refresher. How to trim your groin hair safely is one of life’s must-have skills—one that fathers should teach, older brothers, and male grooming companies like MANSCAPED, dedicated to beautifying a man’s junk since its existence.
