How to Remove Scrotum Hair

Updated April 17, 2017

While it's common knowledge that women groom their bikini area, many men also want to keep their private parts clean and neat. A well-groomed scrotum can aid hygiene and may just make you feel better about how your scrotum appears in intimate situations. There are many methods for removing hair from the scrotum, including permanent laser hair removal and waxing. By far the least expensive and most pain-free option, however, is shaving. While shaving your scrotum may seem a little intimidating, just stay calm and keep your hands steady and you will be fine.

  1. Turn on the shower so it's comfortably warm, and step inside. Relax under the running water for 5 to 10 minutes. The warm steam and water will help soften the hairs so it's easier to get a close shave.

  2. Exfoliate your scrotum area with a soft washcloth and soap. Exfoliating will help prevent ingrown hairs by removing dead skin around the pores.

  3. Dispense a glob of shaving cream onto your hand, and spread it onto your testicles. Don't apply too much. Just a sheer layer will do the job.

  4. Shave your testicles with an upward stroke, using a safety razor. Use light pressure. Rinse your razor in between each stroke.

  5. Shave using downward strokes to remove any excess hair around the penis or on the shaft of the penis itself.

  6. Dry the area thoroughly once you are done shaving. You may want to dust a little baby powder or talc on your scrotum to avoid chafing.
