I have shaved successfully before, BUT... I hereby present:

Jen's "Lessons Learned" for Shaving DOWN THERE

1. Use a new razor, preferably NOT of the cheapest-in-the-store variety. No exceptions. Trust me.

2. Use an emollient shaving cream rather than soap. I especially like my husband's gel stuff, although I'm sure I smell like a lumberjack after. Hm. Odd associations there!

3. Don't get overzealous! One summer I actually shaved off the whole thing, but I will NEVER do that again. When it grew back, it itched furiously for a couple of weeks! For some reason, I haven't had that problem with "edge trimming."

4. Copiously baby powder the area afterward to avoid chafing.
