What Is Your Skin Bridge And How To Groom It Like A Champ
Ah, the wonderful world of male grooming. From the time we start growing our first body hair during puberty, we’re somewhat obsessed with it. Teenage boys brag about who can grow their moustache the fastest and who has the most chest hair. Once we gain the ability to start growing a beard, we try to shave and shape it into a work of modern art.
Manscaping, or male genital grooming isn’t talked about nearly as much as it should be. Almost every boy first learns to shave their first facial peach fuzz by watching a male figure in their life. Most men don’t groom their cock and balls in full view of others, though.
To the average male, manscaping is like Fight Club. The first rule is, you don’t talk about it. Here at manscaping, however, we’re here to break this stigmatized nonsense. Because that’s exactly what it is.
There’s nothing weird about your penis, and how you choose to groom it should be completely up to you. In fact, we’ll even give you the tools you need to get the job done safely and efficiently.
What Is Your Skin Bridge?
For the beginner, manscaping can be a bit scary at first. There’s a bit of a natural fear that every man has when they see something with a sharp edge coming near their family jewels. We usually see a nightmarish flash of blood similar to a B-rate horror film just thinking about it.
One of the areas where many men mess up when shaving their genitals is around their skin bridge.
For those of you who don’t know, the skin bridge is that long scar that you have spanning from the base of your head down your shaft. This is the scar that was left from when you were first circumcised. For those of you who aren’t circumcised, you don’t have to worry about this.
Now, usually this scar is nothing more than a thin white line on the underside of your penis. However, if your circumcision never healed properly, then the resulting inflammation may have resulted in the buildup of scar tissue. Additionally, the remaining foreskin can fuse back onto the penis if it isn’t cut properly.
Steps To Grooming Around Your Skin Bridge
For those who have raised skin bridges, shaving your shaft can be a bit risky. Shaving always works best on completely flat surfaces. Shaving your balls can be hard enough with all the extra loose skin that’s hanging around. Add a long, thick scar in the mix, and your task just got a little bit harder.
Hard as it may be, though, it’s nowhere near impossible. You just have to be willing to put in a little bit of extra effort and care in order not to hurt yourself. Here’s our five-step process to grooming your cock and balls if you have a skin bridge.
Step #1: Prepare the Bathroom
If it’s your first time grooming your genitals or you haven’t done so in a while, it’s going to get a bit messy. Never underestimate the power of pubic hair to get anywhere and everywhere. To cut down on the mess, the best thing that you can do is to pick up some of the Manscaped Magic Mats.
You’ll want to place one of these directly beneath you. 90% of your shaved hair will land on top of the mat, and you’ll just have to do a quick 30-second sweep or vacuum to dispose of the rest. Finally, if unless you want somebody barging in on your while you have a razor to your balls, you might want to keep the door locked.
Step #2: Get Yourself into Position
You need to take special care that you’re in the right position. Everybody has a different shaving position that they prefer, but when it comes to penile grooming, the best position you can take is to stand with your feet planted shoulder-width apart.
You’ll be using your dominant hand to shave with, and your other hand to hold your cock, balls, and loose skin in the most helpful manner. Obviously, you’ll want to keep your shaving hand as steady as possible to avoid slipping and cutting open your skin bridge or other sensitive areas. Additionally, you’ll want to keep your holding hand dry so that you’ll be able to retain a firm grip on everything.
Step #3: Whip Out the Trimmer
Woah there, Boss! Don’t whip it out too fast. Although Manscaped’s Lawn Mower trimmer may fit your hand perfectly with its ergonomic design, you’ll still want to exercise a bit of care while performing your initial shearing. The last thing that you want to happen is for your skin to get caught between the rapidly-oscillating shearing blades, especially if you have a delicate skin bridge in harm’s way.
This trimmer is only meant to cut through the thick bush. Use them to cut anything that’s longer than ¾-inch. Make sure that you keep your hand steady and that the tip of the cutting blade is always at least ¼-inch away from the surface of your skin.
Step #4: Get a Razor-Sharp Shave
Once you’ve cut through all of the thick bush, your next step is going to be getting that close, razor-sharp shape that will have your partner gawking in lust the next time they see your phallic member.
While you can achieve this with your average run-of-the-mill razor from the store, the skinny, straight blades can be a recipe for disaster. Your best bet is to use The Plow.
No, we’re not talking about your grandad’s farming equipment. We’re talking about Manscaped’s awesome safety razor that was designed specifically for shaving your delicate nether regions. It’s large handle and curved underside make it the perfect tool for shaving around your skin bridge and the folds of your balls without ending up in the emergency room.
Step #5: Get Clean
Congratulations! You’ve successfully (hopefully) completed your first manscaping routine. The final step is to clean and freshen up. We recommend taking a warm shower and using the Crop Cleanser genital soap to clean everything up. When you get out, splash on a bit of the Crop Reviver toner to clean out your pores and enjoy your freshly-polished set of balls.
If you’re feeling extra fancy and you want to give your jewels the real royal treatment, then you should apply a dime-sized dab of the Crop Preserver down your shaft, balls, and between your legs. This will not only moisturize and soothe your newly-shaved skin, but it will act as a deodorant and reduce sweating, chafing, and ball funk.
Manscaping with a skin bridge can be a real challenge at first. It’s usually a long, awkward scar that acts as a speed bump on your otherwise flawless shaft. It’s going to take a little bit of working around, and the first couple of times you might miss a spot or two near the area.
Once you get your technique down, however, you’ll be able to manipulate the shaving blade to do just about anything that you want it to do. Your improved skills along with a steady hand are all that you need to shave around even the gnarliest of skin bridges.
