No more blood, sweat, and/or tears.
It should go without saying, but shaving slowly is especially important when you go down below. “I have seen disasters from guys getting careless with razors and scissors down there,” says Rieder. “The skin is particularly delicate and there is not much separating the blade from your nuts!”
If you are going to use a razor, Janczyn recommends a two-blade razor. Fewer blades mean less irritation and fewer cuts. “They also clog up too quickly,” he says, “which increases frustration and makes people go a little too hard with the blade.” A simple razor like Gillette Sensor 2 is perfect. It still gives you the close shave you need, but is more gentle on your junk (or anywhere else) than versions with more blades. Remember: “more is not better,” says Janczyn.
