How to Trim Men's Pubic Hair
(electric razor image by Aleksandr Ugorenkov from

To trim or not to trim? That is the question. To trim your public hair, that is. It's often a personal preference or a partner's preference. For some, trimming public hair is a hygiene issue, while others do it for aesthetic reasons. Before you knock it, though, give it a try. You might be surprised by the reaction. Variety, after all, is the spice of life.

  1. 1

    Take a shower. Freshly washed hair will not be tangled or matted, making it easier to trim.

  2. 2

    Comb the pubic hair to make it easier to access. Essentially, the bushier, the better when it comes to a trim job.

  3. 3

    Place a blade guard on the trimmers to avoid the blades coming in contact with delicate pubic skin. You should have a variety of lengths to choose from. If you aren't sure how short you want to go, start with a longer length first, then you can always go back if you want to go shorter.

  4. 4

    Position yourself over a garbage can or toilet to minimise pubic hair clean-up.

  5. 5

    Start on the underside of the testicles and move the trimmer in a steady motion around the testicles. Go over any spots where the hair appears to still be long.

  6. 6

    Run the trimmers over the remaining pubic hair, including the hair at the base of the penis.

Tips and warnings

  • If you have trouble seeing all your pubic hair, consider using a hand-held mirror to guide you, or even ask your partner to help.
