    What a Great Experience this group has become. The kinship in Brotherhood. There is such a diverse range of topics. This is the place we can be as open as we want to be... Everyone is welcome to join, but it is not a place to Cruise. It's for sharing sexual questions and comments among men.
    Hair removal
    Nancychancy posted:
    Hey guys, I'm new here and I need some advice. My wife's been getting on me about doing some personal grooming (specifically the rear area.) I tried using some duct tape first which just hurt like hell. Then I tried some gorilla glue and saran wrap, which just stuck, then hurt. Is there some kind of product specifically designed for this kind of thing? I don't know how much more abuse my butthole can take.

    Thanks for your help in advance.

    Try searching the internet for 'male hair removal' before trying the painful procedures with tape again. Ouch.

    I've seen many men on these communities that have used hair removal creams, razors, trimmers, etc. There are many methods and you need to find one that works for you without causing too much pain.

    Since your wife wants you to do this, perhaps she would be willing to help accomplish the goal.

    This has got to be a joke! Just shave it for starters. The itiching is not an issue as long as you keep it shaved every 3-4 days or so. Waxing, not the home made kind, may be an option, but let it get done right.

    Nair for men or similar - works fine and is easy
