Mistress Maeve: Your guide to love and lust...

Published December 28, 2011 at 8:40 a.m.

Dear Mistress,

About two years ago, my boyfriend expressed that he prefers when women are completely shaved or waxed. Having always kept my pubes neatly trimmed, it wasn’t that big of a deal for me to go all-the-way smooth (and sometimes I get Brazilian waxes for special occasions). I don’t mind putting in the time and effort to keep my man interested and happy, but I’ve been frustrated in the past because he wouldn’t do the same for me. Mistress, I like pleasing my guy orally, but come on — no one likes a mouthful of hair. He would sometimes trim if I nagged enough, but it was always short lived.

Well, my dream has finally come true. He has agreed to make it his New Year’s resolution to fully shave, balls and all, and keep it maintained for at least three months. The only thing is, he’s terrified to take a razor to his delicate “man areas.” Can you give him some pointers for a safe and easy shave?


Smooth Sailing into the New Year

Dear S.S.I.T.N.Y.,

Kudos to you for continually making an effort for your man, even when he wasn’t doing the same for you. I’m glad to hear he’s finally realized that men aren’t the only ones who appreciate pubic grooming. Besides, doesn’t he realize that when you trim the bush, the tree looks taller?

Manscaping his most delicate areas should be easy and pain-free, so long as he takes his time and follows these tips for safe grooming:

Trim excess hair using clippers or small scissors.

Sit in a warm bath to loosen the skin and soften the hair for easier shaving.

Lather up with a generous portion of shaving cream or gel — no harsh soaps!

Making sure his hands aren’t slippery, pull the scrotum taut, creating a flat shaving area.

Using a new blade, make slow, light strokes until the hair is removed. (Do not press down; let the razor do the work.)

Continue around the base of the penis and underneath the scrotum for maximum smoothness!

Rinse, pat dry and moisturize with a mild lotion (face lotion works great).

If your guy follows the above directions, the only balls dropping this New Year’s Eve will be smooth ones.

Happy New Year,
