Shaving "down there"
Posted on: 08/17/2011
I'm a straight male that shaves "down there" as they say. I'm not going to explain why as it'll take up most of the question. Moving on... So I shave and I'm always cutting myself, I also get red bumps but if I dont shave for three to four days they go so that isn't a problem. So how do I stop cutting myself? I use loads of shaving foam. Do I need a specific razor? Is there a method or technique? Is there an alternative to using a razor? Please help!
