If you would take, you must first give, this is the beginning of intelligence.


Use a Fresh Razor

clothing, fashion, leg, finger, I7gu, You never want to use an old or rusty razor, especially when you're shaving delicate skin down there. Make sure that you always use a fresh razor, so that the blades are sharp. It helps to buy a big pack of razors at a time, so you always have a new one to use once the other ones get dull. It'll cost you a little more money to buy more razors, but it'll be worth it once you see how gorgeous your skin looks.


Don’t Have Sex Right after Shaving

Shaving for sexually active women should be done with care. Not only can it cause skin irritation, but it can also lead to infections. It is important to use a sharp razor and to change the blade often to avoid nicks and cuts. Additionally, it is important to use shaving cream or gel to reduce friction and minimize skin irritation. After shaving, it is important to moisturize with a gentle lotion or oil to soothe and protect the skin. Finally, it is best to shave at least a few hours before having sex to allow the skin to heal and reduce sensitivity.


Prep the Area

Watch How You Shave

Awesome tips, thanks

yaaaaas katie I completely agree. The tips are good but making it seem like it's necessary is a problem


I agree with Katie, especially if you're in a long term relationship when shaving or not shaving doesn't really matter.

Or, you know, don't. If removing your body hair makes you feel beautiful, do it. If it doesn't, don't. Please don't frame this as something you have to do just because you're sexually active!!!
