How Do You Shave Your Balls Without Getting Red Bumps?
If this is your first time trying to shave your balls it may be best to go little by little and to do a quick trim. Don’t give yourself an overall bald & bold cut since you may end up cutting yourself. If you want to avoid the unwanted red bumps it is crucial to hold your balls properly, but to also:
- You should hold the skin upwards and start making careful strokes.
- Make sure all of your tools are clean & relatively newly purchased.
- Always go with the grain of your hair.
- Trim the hair in case there is way too much of it to work with, this will make it easier to shave later on.

Step By Step Process On How To Shave Pubic Hair For Men
1. Safety Is Key
Unfortunately, some men only shave their balls during the summer season (don’t be one of them) and others are way more invested in their hair trimming. Some guys also have sensitive skin and therefore they feel like they don’t need to shave their balls, but there are ways for you as well to enjoy the process. Just make sure that you follow these tips:
- You should have a safety razor
- Buy a pair of high-quality trimmers
- Take advice by someone who has done it several times by now
- Use a balm
- Use a shaving cream
- Don’t rush the process, and make sure you have enough time
2. Get The Right Tools
Besides our previously recommended items, it is also crucial to have warm water, a sharp blade, a pair of clippers, and a lotion. The right tools which are effective and compatible with your body & skin type will get the job done well.
Now, when it comes to the actual hair removal and if you should use an old-fashion trimmer or a razor, know that it is all up to you & your preference. If you want to get your hair short (but not completely removed) you should use a trimmer. Trimmers don’t get as close to your actual skin, and will easily move on the surface while safely removing your pubic hair. An actual razor, on the other hand, glides right on the skin and can leave you with a cut. Men who shave on a day-to-day basis may be a bit more handy with a shaver than guys who love the bearded look. However, know that your razor will remove hair really deep, better than the trimmer.
If you end up shaving make sure to use a razor which you only use for your private parts. The risk of any infections, in this case, is minimal, plus the blade will move smoothly on top of your balls.
You can also use an electric trimmer or anything which you are actually comfortable holding. Just make sure you don’t share your tools with anyone, and remember that these two will give you different results.
3. Slow & Steady Process
A question which haunts many guys: how to shave without actually cutting myself? Well, make sure you have a steady hand. And also, make sure you never share your grooming products with others. And now it is time to jump into the shower!
Wet your private part and let the heat from the steam open up your pores. This will allow both the trimmer and your shaver to glide smoothly. Shaving your balls can become an easy process in time, and the more you do it – the more comfortable you will be & confident in your moves.
Remember that warm water will also soften the hair and allow it to open up. This is a must-do pre-shaving step which will make the whole thing a lot easier. Also, water will act as a natural lubricant for your pubes, so why not use it accordingly?
Don’t forget to cut your hair with some scissors in case it is too long (everything more than an inch is way too much of hair). Once you are satisfied with your length to try to keep the skin as taught as possible. Although the skin taut movement may feel a bit painful at first it is still necessary if you want to shave all the right parts, without cutting yourself.
If you can pull your balls as recommended and you can stretch them out you will get into all the little crevices and smaller parts which are usually unreachable. Make sure your blades are clean & washed after you are done with the process, and re-read our article at least twice just so you don’t miss out on any crucial steps. You can also watch some YouTube tutorials if you are a beginner and if you need a visual on how the process is done. Once you feel confident enough it is time to take the matter into your own hands.
4. Aftercare Is Crucial
Once you’ve got your achieved look and you feel amazing it is time to shave off any other unwanted hairs (such as around your scrotum or your penis) and rinse out the body. Shaved men could have a question about itching & an unpleasant sensation afterward. Now, don’t be alarmed and just know that this is normal. If you want to fix this it is important to use some highly-recommend pre and after shaving products. Once you read some articles or reviews on amazon you can easily find your perfect products and shop for them online & in stores.
However, what we recommend is a lightweight oil, as well as a moisturizer. These won’t irritate your skin nor make any health complications. If you end up with some cuts simply avoid alcohol or any aggressive products for 2 days till your wound heals. Also, try not to scratch your balls if you end up being irritated.
Guys who have sex on a regular should be very careful since intercourse can irritate their balls. Razor burn, rash or ingrown hairs aren’t fun to play with. Make sure to style & cut your pubic hair the best way you know just so you avoid any cuts or irritation.
How Often Should You Shave Your Balls?
Well, in the end, this all pretty much depends on your personal preference, the speed of your hair growth, as well as your body hormones. Every guy is different, and some may experience unwanted hairs sooner than others. However, in most cases, the golden rule is that you should trim your hair every week, but you can shave every other week. Guys who are into fitness may do this process a bit more often since it makes their training sessions a whole lot more comfortable, airy & free. If you are doing it only for your image shave whenever you feel the need to remove all the unwanted hair. For most men, this is every once in a while once they like to get into the shower and they start to fully groom their body.
