Dear Reverend,

My partner really likes to put his balls in my mouth, which I'm totally OK with, but every time he does it, I wind up with a nose full of ass. And he's not exactly well manicured in that department. How do I broach the subject of manscaping with him?

Tangled Teabag (male, 35)

Dear Tangled Teabag,

If you two are close enough for him to be putting his balls in your mouth, tackling his body hair management shouldn't be too much of a stretch.

But discussing personal hygiene can be a daunting task even with your best pals. If being direct with your partner about his bum hair makes you squeamish, try a subtler route. How about springing for a couple's waxing package at a salon or spa and going together? If you've never been waxed before, it will be both terrifying and hilarious — two great bonding emotions rolled into one!

It's possible a full Brazilian wax (often called a Manzilian or Boyzilian when a dude does it), in which all the hair down there is removed, may be too big a leap for your fuzzy buddy. You could help him dip his toe in by offering to give him a little trim yourself. If you're into it, sex it up with a little barber role-play.

I'd recommend using a body-specific trimmer and extra caution. One nick could cause your partner to get shave-shy, and then you'll be dealing with those nose-ticklers forever.

Good luck and God bless,

The Reverend
