Panty Men, Get Rid Of Unwanted Body Hair!

Updated on October 13, 2009

Ye olde before and after...

Are you a man who wears lingerie but would rather not have wads of thick man hair spoiling the look? Sick and tired of seeing bristly hairs breaching the sheer fabric of your stockings? Have you decided that panties just aren't the same when surrounded by hairy foliage?   Does your chest pelt get in the way of enjoying your bra wearing?

Good news! You no longer have to suffer under the tyranny of body hair. There are several options you can take to  rid yourself of unwanted body hair.

Firstly, there is shaving. You're probably already equipped to go this route, but there are a few caveats before you go breaking out the Gillette.

You might want to think about using a women's razor to shave parts of your body such as legs, underarms and chest. Men's razors are designed to shave the face and sometimes do not deal very well with other parts of the body. Smooth legs are sexy, but leg gashes are not.

Shaving is simple, but be careful of shaving in , ahem, sensitive areas. If done with care it is perfectly safe and moderately effective, but you will have to put up with a prickly, uncomfortable growing back sensation at least the first time you do it. Subsequent shavings seem not to have this prickly after effect.

If shaving seems like too much trouble with too much chance of gore,  Diplatory Creams are creams designed to just melt the hair right off your body. Be very careful to patch test these (put a small amount on tougher skin, like your forearm), for 24 hours before you actually use them. There's nothing like chemical burns in one's special places to ruin the joys of lingerie. If you are going to be using the cream on your nether regions, ensure that the cream is rated for that kind of use before you go ahead and slather it across your testes.

The other option is, of course, waxing. Waxing is a process by which warm wax is applied to the skin, then ripped off, taking the hair with it out by the roots. Waxing is not entirely pleasant (it may make you scream), but it is dashed effective.

If you want a more permanent solution, electrolysis may be the answer. Electrolysis involves the use of a small amount of electrical current applied directly to the hair, killing it at the root. With a few such electro treatments, the hair follicle eventually gives up the will to live and dies off, resulting in smooth skin for as long as you live. Electrolysis comes with its own kind of pain, and as each hair must be treated individually, you'll be in the studio having yourself electrocuted a little at a time for quite some time.

      I tried an epilator, but get lots of in-growing hairs, and creams. But the best I can do at the moment is just keep it cut short, but not short enough to be prickily.

      Hope: you forgot one method of epilation. I have been using an epilator, bought on Ebay, for 5 - 6 years. It also pulls hair out by the root but, being the size of an electric razor, the smaller amount of hair pull'd off at a time makes any pain much more tolerable. In fact, after the first few times, the hair root becomes desensitized and I feel only a sensation like plucking one hair at a time. On some areas of my body notably my chest, the roots actually died. The only drawback to this method is an occasional ingrown hair. I get by epilating once or twice a week, though more often was necessary when I started doing it. I just wish I had a lady who could do my back and buy me soft, pretty, Feminine things. Lingerie DOES feel, and look, fantastic sliding over freshly epilated skin.

      I can't imagine your wife objecting, hi cut guy, it is a lot more pleasant for a woman when a man's 'inaccesible regions' are trimmed or hair free

      I am not a hairy guy, but the concept of waxing intrigues me. While I could struggle through shaving myself, it would be a heck of a lot easier to have someone else do the work and also tend to the more inaccessable regions. So far I have not summond the courage to do this, nor have I determined how I might reasonably explain the hair loss to my wife. As I get older, I am less inhibited and willing to say "because I felt like it", but one has to weigh the risk/benifit equation in such matters.

      I pine for a smooth bod.

      If i shave my legs for the winter, ( Pantyhose feel so sexy on smooth legs) my wife,( you'll remember her as the one who freaks in a previous hub) is not keen to touch them. I shaved my chest and shewas even less than impressed. She preferred straggly grey chest hair to a smooth one.

      I loved having smooth skin. Presently the only smooth skin is my face and pubes.
