I wish this had been a "check as many boxes as you want" poll. I trim the landing strip, and depending on time of the year either wax/epilate or shave the rest. And if it has to be perfect, and the wax/epilator misses a few, I twease the stragglers.

I put in a vote for waxing although I don't do it all that often. I generally trim with an electric trimmer, but it is nice once and a while to wax some of the areas so they are nice and smooth. I have also used Nair types products before with some success.

I trim with an electric trimmer because I like not having hair, but my wife likes hair, so it's a good compromise...

I shave, it just works and is not painful like waxing.

I have tried waxing and trimming. Waxing was too painful for me. Trimming, well I ended up with cuts. I guess I'm just not that good at it. Shaving seems to be my best bet. I shave most of the hair off but not all. I like some to be left.

Oh goodness, my spelling was atrocious. Twease = tweeze, hahah. And, didn't notice that this was in the men's section. Major fail for trying to respond late at night. He shaves bare.

I just shave. I've been looking into the possibility of getting a Brazilian as I have a friend who does this sort of thing, but I just can't bring myself to drop my pants and let my friend pour hot wax on my lady bits, lol

I trim using an electric trimmer. I try to do it once a week, but I forget or get busy so often that I'm pretty much down to about twice a month, tops.

I just find shaving easiest since I'm already in the shower to shave my legs and/or armpits. There's a little trimming once in a while when I'm not up to shaving. I tried to tweeze a few I missed after shaving....totally not my friend.

Lol, I tried to tweeze the stragglers a few times but very quickly decided that it's much easier to just wait until the next time I shower. Ouch

Sometimes it gets itchy in between shaves, though lol.
Wanted to try waxing but cuz of 'horror' pain stories, I don't think so...

I shave it all. I also occaisionally tweeze a bit if I missed some during the shave.

I shave it all. I had done some experimenting in the past with different creams and waxes.

Hair removal creams are a really bad idea for that area, and some how I got some on my nipples that was not pleasant at all. My nipples were irritated for like a week.

I was never able to get do it urself wax kits to work for that, I have a hard time hurting my self like that.


I used to be obsessed with twee-zing, mainly my eyebrows but once those were nearly gone I would tend to wonder.

I shave for the most part, but I have other methods as well for more special occasions. I have been doing it for so long that I have my get completely bare method down pretty well lol. I rarely ever have to do a round two.

Waxes don't work well enough for the exchange of pain. Creams are okay, but often have to be followed up with shaving. They do make the hair softer though, so sometimes I'll just use them for that effect since then it is easier to shave the next day. I shave just about every day and so does my guy.

I only shave my bikini line, and if my boyfriend wanted to shave his pubic area, I wouldn't let him. The thought is a total turnoff.

I just shave everything. I tried designs but I usually messed up so now everything comes off. I guess my bod is just used to it and above all, I like how I look.
Waxing was painful and other methods expensive, so...

A combination... I wax the crack and shave the balls, but I lightly trim the mound with an electric trimmer... I looking masculine and natural in the front and clean and pretty in between...

I kind of do all of the above. I usually only trim in the winter (it's really cold on your labia when you're wearing a skirt and are bald!). But I will trim, use depilatory cream, and shave the stuff I missed with the cream and the stuff closer to the goods in the summer. It's horribly time consuming.

Shaving. The only method I've ever used. It seems to work well enough. Though I've decided that just once in my life, I want to wax. Before I die I need to experience the pain that most women put themselves through on a regular basis. Just to know and understand why I never have, and never again will.

I'm right there with you, I just haven't worked up the balls to pay somebody to cause me that much pain and I can't walk around and show off the end result like with a tattoo or something, lol

I get a full Brazilian as often as I can. The only downside to it is waiting for it to grow to a waxable length, but the results last ages, and the hair grows back softer and sparser each time.

I've tried hair removal on my legs and it was a disaster, no way I'd use it elsewhere. Or let my partner. However, I did find that Veet stuff worked wonders on my legs, but I would think it's unsafe to put near your genitals. And I don't think you could convince a boy to try it. My boy's response was 'isn't that girl stuff?'

Shaving is easier for me, although I've heard a lot of people gripe about razor-burn. I've been shaving twice a week since I was 13 years old, so maybe my body just stopped getting razor-burn or something. Who knows..

I always wanted to try waxing, but I'm terrified. Haha

My boy thinks waxing is the meanest thing on earth. I really can't get him to do anything but trim. He thinks shaving will eat his skin or something.

I trim down way down and then shave the bikini line. I can't fully shave or I get irritated and get bumps galore. And that's just not sexy.

Has anyone used the creams on pubic hairs? No one posted about it. I absolutely hate shaving but I love the idea of a depilatory cream down below, I dont have sensitive skin so I think it will be ok.

I have tried depilatories - in my view they are way too caustic for 'intimate' use.

Shaving isn't so bad if you use a high quality razor, fresh blades and a premium shave cream. I use the latest Gillette Fusion and hair conditioner as shaving cream. Not only does the conditioner protect from irritation - it leaves the skin 'conditioned' - so no aftershave is necessary.
