You know I was worried about clicking on this thread and I never should have done it.

If you are going to do it make sure you get the wax good and hot not that I know from expierence but I just think that if you are going to subject yourself to the pain you might as well go all out.

If you need to shave don't wax you are just asking for a world of hurt.

If you are going to do that why don't you just remove them all together.
Think of the weight savings and added comfort in the saddle.

It would technically be possible, BUT it would hurt more than I can imagine. When waxing it is recommended that the skin be held very taunt, the skin is usually rather loose around them, which would make it a lot harder to acomplish & ALOT more painful.

It's post like these that make me feel old. I hate shaving my face but do, could shave my legs but won't, and will not think about shaving the boys let alone do it. I can't imagine doing that. Way too much effort. Can I ask why??? I know many of the younger folks are into very little body hair but this might be going over the line. No?

Man, I am 20 years old, and I can't fathom doing that!!! I don't think age is the question, rather, sanity is!!! If you have ever gotten a clump of hair caught in the zipper, you get the amount of pain you are facing here. Only, the pain is spread over the entire region. I try to keep things trimmed and tidy, but waxing? OWWWW!!!

Shaving them is pretty easy. Waxing...only if you are angry at "your boys."

If I were you, I would just shave them. Or you can use NAIR. A hair removal product for women. I don't think you'll enjoy it though.

Be sure to NOT inform me how this turns out. :-)
