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

Tips: Use your regular conditioner on these hairs and you may find they come off more easily. Once you find a regular pattern, you won't feel itchy or uncomfortable. And if you find it appealing, you can use scissors to make pretty patterns for your pubic hairlines, such as a heart shape or a plain strip. Get more tips here.

Sexual Bennies:

  • Some men and women enjoy sharing a shaving session as part of their lovemaking rituals. Watching yourself be shaved can feel intimate, and sharing the ritualistic aspect of shaving each other's pubic areas can heighten excitement as foreplay for much more after you are done.
  • Something magical happens when you alter your body image and use your body as a canvas. Try it.

Creams and depilatories

Description: Remove hair from the bikini line by spreading on a thick layer of cream and waiting for 5-10 minutes. The cream makes the hair soft and easy to wipe away. Read more about creams and depilatories here.

Pros: Just as with shaving, this is a technique that is inexpensive that you can do yourself at home. Plus, you can be more aggressive about where you apply the cream because there is no risk of cutting yourself in that delicate area.

Cons: Most of these creams have a very unpleasant, chemical aroma. They can also sting your skin. Allergic reactions aren't uncommon so be sure to test out any product on your wrist first. And read the instructions carefully. I am not a big advocate of putting anything harshly chemical onto the inner labia or vulva, so go easy to avoid burning. Ouch! And again, some women will have stubborn hairs that are resistant to these creams, not producing the smooth results you're looking for.
