What does everyone else do !! I recall a few years ago covering it in hair removal cream! The front was fine but jeeze it burnt my lips.!!! Shaving just aggravates me and the following few days it itches like mad !!!! It looks wild down there sad

Just leave it as nature intended.

Leave it be. And stop calling it your foo foo.

If you’re still young enough to use a twee nickname then you’re too young to be worrying about hair removal.

You can get little Veet razors that are battery powered. They have a pink guard on and trim the hair without sending you bald so it doesn't itch at all as it grows.

Wax the back (bum) and sides that show outside bikini line. Trim the rest with clippers.

I remove my pubic hair periodically from the sides and undercarriage. I exfoliate the area with a mitt a day or so before and use hair conditioner instead of shaving foam as it is much more effective.

I know the arguments about why we shouldn't do it but honestly i much prefer it shaved when I'm going to get lucky so I do it for those times 🤷🏼‍♀️

Hot wax. This is the only way to do it.

Full bush.

Waxing is the way to go

maa1992 Thu 05-Mar-20 22:22:36

I shave, it's annoying and shaving bumps and itchiness is annoying, husband prefers my shaven and ive been doing it since I was a teenager so it's like a second nature to me

Got to disagree with you there. It's a way to do it, yes, though a painful one.

I have a Phillips lumea and it’s amazing for down there! I zap it every few weeks and the only regrowth are the bits I miss so just the odd strip!

BecauseReasons Thu 05-Mar-20 22:26:30

@maa1992 I hope he returns the favour- you have told him you prefer him shaven?

Tbh I would tell him that even if it wasn't true.

Use a good quality hair condtioner. The razor then glides.

For those who tell you not to shave, this is not the question being asked

BecauseReasons Fri 06-Mar-20 05:52:55

Be wary of the conditioner method! If the skin down there is sensitive you can find yourself in a lot of discomfort.

DoTheNextRightThing Fri 06-Mar-20 06:38:45

I use the sensitive precision electric razor for down there and it's never given me any problems. Can get right into all the nooks and crannies.

Usually, I do nothing. Before holidays, I go for a wax. If I were younger, or more bothered, I’d wax regularly. The regrowth with shaving is too uncomfortable, and I didn’t get on with the cream.

Extended bikini wax, every 6 weeks or so. Find it only mildly painful.

TwilightPeace Fri 06-Mar-20 06:46:31

Why are people telling you not to do it?
I trim the hairs down as much as I can first, then shave with a brand new razor.

I shave it completely hygiene purposes. I feel more cleaner when I shave it! Nothing against woman who leaves it alone and lets it grow wild lol good for them! I just make sure I use a good razor (usually use BIC). I never get ingrown hair/itch down there ((knock on wood)) but my legs get very itchy so I have to get them waxed!

userabcname Fri 06-Mar-20 06:49:17

It is more hygienic to have pubic hair than to not have it. Get rid of it if you want but do not claim this makes you cleaner. It doesn't.

LouisaJenny Fri 06-Mar-20 06:49:50

I trim mine using the Wilkinson Sword bikini razor that has a trimmer attached.

Been doing it for years now and wouldn’t do anything else.

kevintheorangecarrot Fri 06-Mar-20 06:50:46

I FEEL cleaner.

“ Why are people telling you not to do it? ”

Because some people on Mumsnet think that if you dare to exercise your own personal choice in this matter,
A) You’re selling out the sistsahood and decades of feminism
B) You’re a product of the pornification of society
C) Your partner has paedophilic tendancies

Some people can’t/won’t seem to understand that to some it feel neater, cleaner, comfier etc.
