you're probably getting razorburn. . . what i do is i shave in the shower under warm water with a ladies' razor and i use ladies' shaving gel as well... they're a lot smoother than our regular shit, and the ladies' razor is contoured better to shave down there. the venus razor isn't bad, although in actuality, any razor will do. i shave from the bottom up... or from far from my body to closer... penis head end to pubic bone end... i'm not sure if u understood me... it does get smoother if u shave the other way, but you risk irritating your skin and getting both razorburn and ingrown hairs. you don't want either. if you get ingrown hairs, stop shaving for a bit, let your hair grow back some, then shave again. remember to always rinse out your razor after every so many strokes to keep the blades clean and sharp. stop using the razor after the aloe strip has faded. also, BE GENTLE. these are your sensitive private parts. i find it makes it easier for me to shave if i've got an erection while i do it... there's more surface area to work with.FadeToBlack said:for those of you who do....how do you keep it lookin nice, whenever i shave it looks like shit all iritated and red bumps and stuff?
