Every now and then we get a strange day that comes along. It is one that we might not truly understand. They give us the chance to celebrate a number of different things, and today is Men’s Grooming Day!
Yes, you read that correctly. There is a day dedicated specifically to the art of male grooming. Men’s Grooming Day is definitely one of the more unusual ones out there, but it does make us think… how much care do you give to your crotch? Do you keep thinks nice and tidy there?
If not, maybe it is time to start thinking about it. Today is Men’s Grooming Day, so what better way to celebrate than by telling you how you can make your cock look amazing and all the more tempting to sexy ladies.
Men’s Grooming Day
According to Days of the Year, Men’s Grooming Day falls on the third Friday of August each year. So this year, it is the 19th of August that sees us celebrating this unusual day. So what is the day for? According to Days of the Year:
There’s a lot of stigma around male grooming. But in today’s society it’s simply not acceptable to be scruffy, smelly and unkempt. So catch up, men! Men’s Grooming Day encourages men everywhere to buy and use grooming products, and to proactively manage their appearance. Salons, hairdressers and beauty parlours often cater especially to men on this day with offers, education and special consideration.
However, we think that it is also a great way to get you thinking not just about your facial appearance… but also how your cock appears. Do you shave and keep it tidy, do you trim to make it look neater, or do you simply let it all go free?
Why people shave their crotch
A lot of people aren’t keen on the idea of shaving their crotch, and for a number of different reasons. For a start, you might be worried about cutting yourself. Razor cuts can sting, and the idea of slicing yourself open there… ouch! No wonder you are put off the idea!
There is also the fact that, once you have shaved this area, it takes a lot of maintenance to keep up with it. It gets itchy and uncomfortable and honestly, that isn’t something that you want.
The temptation can be to avoid shaving and instead use hair removal cream. If you have seen that viral Amazon review, then you will know why it is a bad idea. The story might be hilarious to read, but take the man’s advice and don’t do it. Instead, stick with shaving.
There are so many benefits to taking a little time to maintain that area with a razor, especially on Men’s Grooming Day. It is a hell of a lot more hygienic. The chances of bits of dirt and sweat collecting in the area are reduced, as the hairs that they cling to are no longer there. This makes your partner much more willing to wrap their lips around it, because it looks more appetising.
Another big plus? Shaving makes your dick look bigger. It will look much more impressive to the lady, as there is nothing standing in the way of you and your cock. However, it can still be difficult to convince yourself that shaving is the right thing to do. That is why you are best following a guide.
If you do decide that you want to brave the shave and give it a go, then there are a few essential things that you need to do to prepare. First of all, invest in a good quality razor for the job. Don’t just use the one you use on your face. Instead, get new, fresh blades, and don’t be afraid to shell out on a decent one. Gillette gets a lot of praise from men online for this, so treat yourself to a good quality razor. Cheap and dull razors actually increase the chances of irritating your skin, cutting yourself, and getting ingrown hairs. Definitely not what you want!
Two unusual things to add to your list are conditioner and coconut oil. Yes, the same conditioner you put on your head and the same coconut oil you might use for cooking. The conditioner helps the blade glide easier across your skin as you shave, and another bonus is that it softens the hair a little. This makes it easier for the razor to do its job. Coconut oil is also amazing to put on afterwards, as it can help to soothe the skin and make everything soft.
Invest in a loofah or something to help to scrub the skin. You can buy exfoliating gloves which help you get into every nook and cranny. This is important because it can help to reduce the risk of you getting ingrown hairs in the future, and it makes your crotch silky smooth. This means that the razor has an easier time of gliding across the skin. You’ll also want to make sure your shower can get really hot. The hot steam and water will help to open up the pores. This means that the razor is less likely to tug on hairs and will instead help to cut them without cutting the skin.
A guide to shaving your crotch
Now we get down to the important bit: actually shaving your crotch. Take your time in the shower, giving yourself a good wash as you normally would. This will help to relax you, and the warmth of the shower will help to open up the pores. Dirt can collect in the pores easily, so make sure you give yourself a good scrub in the shower. Now, a good scrub doesn’t mean you have to go hard. Take your time and be gentle, but make sure you cover every inch of your body.
When you begin to shave, make sure you apply a good helping of conditioner to the area. Give it a little time to soak in, adding more if you need, and begin to shave. It helps if you pull the skin taut, and when you start, go with the grain, not against it! So, if the hairs point downwards, move the blade downwards. Going against the grain will increase the chances of catching the skin and doing a poor job on the shave. When you have done that everywhere, change the angle. Move at a ninety degree angle and begin at the top of the area. You do not need to press hard with the razor to get results, but you do need to make long and determined strokes.
Make sure you really pay attention to the areas that you have shaved and where you might have missed. It is a good idea to shave the entire area in one go, and then go back over it to check. This is especially important with your balls, as the saggy skin here can make it difficult to find all of the hairs. If you go even further and decide to shave your ass crack, you’ll find that touch is very important. Unless you take a mirror in the shower with you and are incredibly flexible, you won’t be able to see. Spread as much as you can before you shave and you’ll find that it is even easier to get those hard to reach areas.
Once you feel you have done a good job, rinse yourself off. Have another feel and, when you step out of the shower, feel free to check with a mirror. This can help to find that rogue hairs that you may have missed, but it will also show you just how good shaving can be. Your cock will look bigger and more impressive… and this can make it all worth it.
Don’t make the mistake that many people make with shaving. They tend to forget the importance of aftercare. Aftercare is an essential thing to do if you want to reduce the sting and the itch that will come soon after shaving. Start by drying yourself off completely, paying particular attention to the folds around the area.
If you want to reduce the itch, you might want to invest in witch-hazel. This is something that will sting a little as you apply it, but trust me, it is worth it. It really helps to reduce the itch. If you don’t want the sting, that is fine, but be prepared to walk around with the desire to scratch at your crotch more than usual!
Coconut oil is also fantastic to use after the shower. You might prefer to use some other body lotion or moisturiser, but the oil is great. Not only do you need a tiny amount to cover the area, but it will also soothe. If you combine this with the witch-hazel, you can remove the sting and have silky soft skin. What more could you ask for? For the best results, continue to apply the oil every day for around a week. If you don’t like it after this time, try something else, but you will probably find that it works really well to make your skin feel better and to help with the itch.
