Bikini Line Best Bets: The Top 5 Hair Removal Techniques for Steamier Sex

Check out the top 5 hair removal techniques for your bikini area

As the Sex Coach, many women ask me about the best way to remove hair "down there" (from the pubic area). It's one of the most common questions on the Ask the Sex Coach message board, but there is no one right answer for everyone. Because each of us has unique needs, tastes and, yes, styles, the real answer is: it depends.

It depends on how much nuisance you are ready to face, how much (if any) money you want to invest, how painful a procedure you think you can endure and then (for the fun part), what will make you feel the most erotic -- alone and with a partner. After all, we're talking about the most private parts of you, aren't we?

If you're ready to try something new, there are five basic options for taking it off. Each one should help you feel more sexy, more feminine and pleasing to both yourself and a partner. They vary in cost, work involved, intensity of sensation and also how they make you look and feel. Here are the
basic options:

  • Shaving
  • Creams and depilatories
  • Waxing
  • Brazilian Bikini
  • Electrical or laser treatments


Description: Using a sharp razor, scissors or an electric shaver, shave off some or all of the hairs that grow over and around your pubic area.

Pros: It's cheap, easy and you can do it to yourself anytime, anywhere.

Cons: Shaving requires keeping it up; if you don't shave off the hairs regularly, you can expect to have that dreaded itch from the stubble of regrowth. Also, some women won't get the clean, stubble-free look they want with this method.
