What Happens When You Manscape
Manscaping: That ever-important action of maintaining your manliness and making sure it's presentable and pleasant for anyone who may encounter it.
If the idea of putting power tools around your pride and joy makes you a bit squeamish, fear not! Manscaping is a totally normal (and widely encouraged) process, but if you've never undergone the activity of maintaining your manliness, it may seem like a bit of a scary endeavor.
To put you at ease and introduce you to a land where the grass really is greener on the other side of the fence, we've compiled this quick guide to help you get a better grasp of the activity that your partners will thank you for later.
Manscaping Starts by Trimming Your Landscaping
An out-of-control bush is nobody's friend. To begin, you'll want to clear a path to your crown jewels by trimming down unruly curlies, but be advised -- the scissors you use to cut the hair on your head (or worse, a head of lettuce) simply aren't fit to tackle your below-the-belt efforts.
Be sure to employ a pair of scissors that's designed for, and solely dedicated to, the task at hand. Give your scissors a good rub down with rubbing alcohol before you begin to ensure a clean and sterile surface. (Note: If your hair isn't that long, you can skip the scissors and go straight for the trimmer.)
Keep Your Manhood Clean
Before you go to work, give your hands and nether region a good cleaning with a moisturizing cleanser that will eliminate dirt and prep your skin for trim and shave that's on the horizon. Soft, supple skin will be more accepting of your manscaping needs.
Let the Trim Begin
Hair is best maintained on the manscaping front when it's around 1/16 of an inch long. If your hair is longer, trim it down before you reach for the clippers. This course, curly hair can curl back into the skin if it's not properly cared for, which can cause ingrown hairs. To avoid this pitfall, pre-trim so your manly mane is easy to maintain.
Then Comes the Razor
Once your skin is prepped, cleaned, and trimmed, you can finish your manscaping style. A gentle-yet-effective trimmer will take care of the curlies above and around your shaft, while a sterile straight razor and a very steady and gentle hand will take care of the fuzz on your balls.
Now that you know more about how to manscape properly, it's time to stock your bathroom shelves with everything you need to keep your manhood trimmed, smooth, and sexy!
