    Instructional videos by Gillette:

    So, is Gillette just feeling the pinch of the economy and needs to sell more product, or is body hair removal for men becoming normal/accepted? What do you think about this? Do you shave any body hair? Ladies of the board, how do you feel about body hair on your man?

    I read some blog where the dude wanted to kill himself after doing what is described in the third video. When it was growing back out just walking brought him to tears. Hardcore whiskers down there would be terrible.

    Nair.

    Dammit.

    Anyway, I trim down there using a beard trimmer (since I don't have a beard). I would never shave.

    Why would you ever shave those places?? I'd shave my pits but that is about it. For the rest, you can buy pre-waxed strips that take care of everything for you. More temporary pain, but at least there isn't any intolerable itching. And, as far as your nads go, just use a simple trimmer. Most of the time, there's no need to go completely clean anyways

    I'll maybe use a trimmer down there, but not a razor. Especially not a 5 bladed one.

    I keep all my parts trimmed. Chest, arm pits, "big boy" hair and even my calves and forearms. My trusty ball sack gets the smooth treatment using a razor and I have never had irritation, itching or any problems.

    LOL, I remember that Nair thread. Classic for sure.

    I'm too scared to take a blade to it.....beard trimmer ftw.

    I'm extremely hairy so I just trim my chest, "down there" and armpits. Shaving them clean looks silly to me.

    I can't stand back hair. Not totally against them shaving. Would still rather prefer if guys trimmed.

    I'm gonna have to go with the former; but, it's not like Gillette hasn't been leeching out from the masses for years.

    I can barely stand to shave my face let alone other body parts.

    BTW, anybody have anymore sites or coupons for free razors?
