Hahah!! That's hilarious.

Actually ... I was thinking of upgrading to a straight razor for all my hair (and hare) removal needs.

Why shave when you can gnaw the hair off?

My stance on things with my wife is that I won't ask her to do anything I am not willing to do/have done. This made for an interesting day when we bought a home waxing kit from Sally's. Hers went pretty well - I learned that the immediate pressure after ripping is key. When it was my turn - I screamed like a little girl. Not sposed to see blood on my balls! That was one of the single worst ideas I have had!! Now she is understanding and just asks me to shave instead - I was willing and that was good enough in her book!

Did you really think it could have ended any differently?

Generational TMI observations: I'm noticing some of my hair is getting longer, it is less curly as I age. That takes a gentle scissor/comb trimming. Things aren't as taut as they used to be, I don't trust sharp things there without a comb between blade and flesh. And I have two funny little bald spots on the sides. I think the hair is turning grey too. I'm just happy to be getting enough action to notice what's down there in detail.
These are not my fuckos.

Well its a guy thing to laugh at testicular misfortune (while cringing).

If it makes you feel any better: while employed as a painter, the new guy asked how he could renove the (oil based) paint from his skin. We pointed him at the mineral spirits without a second thought.

Apparently he had gotten paint on his balls, and after emerging from the bathroom he spent the rest of the day and from what I understand all nght with his balls resting on a bag of ice.

While just about any color would all have been funnier, we were prepping a rental apartment and it was a pale beige if I recall correctly.

I've read through this read from the beginning, and I have to finally comment, I have never laffed so hard as I have reading all your comments!

I can understand men not wanting to wax the ol' oysters...way too sensitive an area, shaving is the better idea. But waxing the upper parts should hurt some, but not much. Just trim the hair to about a 1/4 in or a bit more before waxing, and exfoliate the area to be waxed. A lot of kits come with a pre-numbing lotion or a cooling after-wax lotion. Go to a beauty supply shop for a brazilian wax kit also.


Ok, my 2c.

Why you gotta trim it down first?

Seems like more slip, less grip.

It'll hurt less OED, and the wx I use grips the hell out of the hairs. plus, it you wax a small spot at a time, there's not as much pain as when you use a wider strip. Less shock to the system!

I posted this elsewhere, but it is well worth posting again. Some great tips for shaving the nether regions that would probably work just as well for shaving balls.

I was quite lucky to find a hairy beast man who barely notices the body hair I'm able to produce. This has allowed me to continue being completely lackadaisical about my hair removal without having to tell him why he's being a bitch for complaining about it in the first place. But I must admit that nothing beats the feeling of a completely unencumbered tongue all over my freshly shaved lady parts.

I thought about getting some laser hair removal in strategic areas just because I love it so but then, I wonder, would that make it seem less special?

Dick kinda missed me by several decades. I've been shaving since my teens. I tried letting it grow my first year and got the crunchies. Eew. I don't need shade that bad. This year I got a brand new hernia scar. Like a frankenstein...or an Igor. I asked my doctor to match it up with my other side, but he missed it by an inch. Lopsided smiley.
One suggestion: be sober when you shave your balls. Trust me.
