I have kind of a "Pascal's Wager" approach to the idea... imagine the best possible outcome and the worst possible outcome. No matter how small the chance of the worst possible outcome, the magnitude of misery by far outweighs the "pro" side of the argument.

it is (in my not minute experience) the safest place on your body to shave. don't quite know why, but it stands up to machete like hacking with nary a nick, while gentle caresses of the blade on my neck (or legs, or other areas) will result in fairly regular bleeding.

as for the upside - it's a great incentive to have people who might be so inclined suck on them - and that's not an experience to be missed...

I don't just want to watch people but I would like to experience as much of burning man as I can without getting into compromising positions



Sexual camps...compromising positions?!?! Are you sure its the Burningman Website you've been viewing? Its about the art, the creativity, the freeingness of it all. Just open your mind...the rest will follow.

I know that burning man is not a big sex camp, but I was looking through the theme camps and saw many of them had a sexual feel to them. I have never been so maybe I am mistaken. I understand what burning man is about but I also know what I read. that's what I was going off of.

You'll discover that most of the overt sex themes really turn out to be playful, tongue-in-cheek, and humorous. It's not like walking through the back alleys of Tijuana where a plywood sign for a Donkey Show actually leads to a Donkey Show. That's not to say that wandering into certain camps may find you in the middle of some weird stuff, but it's rarely going to be scary or upsetting unless you're REALLY fragile. If you find yourself in the middle of something that you really don't like, it's pretty easy to turn around and head out, especially if you keep a bit of good humor about it.

Try doing the deed immersed in warm water (like a bath). Still have to be careful, but it is much easier! I did nick myself once, and it was a bitch the next time the pressure started building (ymmv)....definately to be avoided!

Chunks outta my scrotum is exactly what I want to avoid. Acheiving a nicely trimmed, clean, presentable (to the right person, that is) package without the pain of missing scrotum chunks is exactly what I'm shooting for.
...but it seemed like such a good idea at the time...

oh oh oh....this is getting hard to read. I thought the topic was
"Nudity an Nervousness "
Glad the females aren't joining in on this conversation. but if you must speak on ways to avoid scrotum chunk loss can you come up with another thread please.

just a request. I am also guilty of making a suggested scrotum shave way.


I just know I'm gonna have nightmares. :o

nightmares? it's just a lil piece of skin that grows completely back in a day or two. of all the trauma i've experienced in my life, that ranks pretty low on the totem pole.

Yeah, but when that little piece of skin is part of an all-too-thin barrier between my testes and the harsh elements? It my just be a shaving nick, but that's gotta be the most terrifying shaving nick known to man.
BTW, anyone tried using horrible, burning chemicals like, say nair? It seems a slightly less violent solution to me.

Ya, ya, ya....or, better, submit yourself to the fucking hack that did my vasectomy. Been a couple 'o years and I still get the shrinkies whenever I remember how that sad MF brought me up off the table numerous times tying off my vasa deferentia (sidebar: hey, do I get extra points for using a term whose plural is way different from singular?). Each time he "claimed" to be giving me more anesthetic. Sadistic fuck; special place for people like him.

Shave nicks & rashes pale in comparison, unless you're using a wood plane to do the deed.

Oh, and its not that I don't heartily recommend vasectomies for any of you males in need of some more permanent relieving of potential obligations.........jes get yerself a good cutter to do the work.

"personal" shaver

Postby retropsycho » Fri Mar 19, 2004 2:09 pm

Haven't found the possible urban legend about the guy who accidentally castrated himself w/ Nair. Hair between testicles and thighs acts as lubricant, keeps skin from sticking to skin. Think twice before removing it, but at least it will grow back. I've seen a special single head electric shaver advertised for shaving pubs, both male & female. Try "personal shaver" in a search engine.

http://www.about-hair-removal.com/1/home.htm

I don't know what's she removing in this banner ad, but it doesn't resemble hair (some nudity)

I will not fear. Fear is the mind killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone . . . there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

Yeah, well try imagining mistaking Vicks Vapo Rub for Vaseline (pre-lube days.)

from the nair page:

DO NOT USE ON HEAD OR FACE, AROUND EYES, IN NOSE, IN EARS, ON NIPPLES, PERIANAL OR GENITAL AREAS.

it doesn't mention anything about not using it to control anal tufts, though...
