To manscape or not to manscape that is the question?

Updated on February 24, 2011

Now a day’s manscaping is more common than you think. We look at all these male models their smooth hairless sexy bodies and the women love them for it. However our hairy men suffer for it. I will even admit I am a fan of manscaping there is nothing more inviting than to see clean shaving. Men on the other hand do not have the same sentiment for whatever reason. It takes a little convincing to get them to follow suit. Now I’ve heard a lot of the complaints men give as to why they do not manscape.

1. It’s not masculine

2. It itches

3. I look like a little boy

Well men, if you like your woman clean shaven then guess what, we like you clean shaven as well. Here, let me give you some of the benefits.

1. It makes your junk look bigger!

2. Reduces musty orders

3. A clear view during oral pleasure

4. Prevent transmission of one of the most common STD’s (pubic lice)

5. It makes you look cleaner

Overall the benefits are definitely a plus and by all means I’m not saying that you should shave every piece of hair off of your body. Realistically hair is what makes you a man. Here are some key tips when manscaping starting from head to toe.


Facial hair is a plus, however only when it is under control nicely shaped and neat. Ears and nose, there should not be any visible hair. Eye brows leave them alone shaping those could be considered a bit much.


Some hair on the chest is fine, however if you are a wolfman please do trim it down. Back and shoulder hair is a no no get rid of it, there is nothing sexy about that. Abdomen, just a trail if you got more than that cut it off. If you just keep just a trail, you will see women won’t mind following it down.

Below the belt

Frank and beans, look at it this way how do you like your women? Well we like it the same. Now if you are not completely comfortable with shaving it bald then just do a shape up, get the hair under control. Here is one tip for you when shaving your genitalia use a razor or clipper that is only used in this area to prevent irritation, my personal favorite is The Schick® Quattro® Titanium Trimmer. I personally use the one that is for ladies. Legs and feet, leave them alone we do like to be reminded that “hey you are a man”.

Hopefully this helps anyone who is still debating on whether or not to manscape. Trust me when I say it is a great bonus to a woman and what will it hurt to try it out?

      Years ago when this all started I wondered what this would feel like. So I decided to shave down there. After shaving I then had to trim all my body hair do make thing look normal. I found I feel much more comfortable with trim and shaved hair than my hair growing wild and free. I been trimming ever since.

      There is absolutely NO reason to have a razor rash in today's day and age. I trim and style my pubic region on a daily basis and NEVER have a single bump or blemish. NO ONE! You can see my secret on my Blog and say good-bye to rash, good-bye to expensive razor blades, good bye to special cremes, I mean it. There is no cost to visit my blog and I feel I am doing a public service.

      I am old and I am old school. It took me about two paragraphs to figure out what 'manscaping' is! LOL

      I found this interesting. Good first entry Tys. What are you going to do for an encore?
