Puberty is a normal part of life for most men. When it’s time to trim the caterpillar from their upper lip, this is when they first use a razor. Grooming their bodies is something that we don’t discuss. Some men love their chest hair while others are bothered by their pubic hair. Others are more conscious of hair and grooming than others.

When we speak about male friendship’s importance, we are referring to vulnerability. Even so, we have to admit that it is difficult to fit the question “Hello, how are you shaving your back?” into a conversation. Don’t worry. It’s important that there is a guide for manscaping that offers options. Perhaps even more important, tools of trade so that you don’t end-up nicking and slicing yourself.

What is manscaping, or male body grooming?

Before Tan, Jonathan and Bobby stole our hearts with their Netflix Netflix series “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy,” the original Fab Five was Ted, Kyan and Thom. These shows changed the way men see male grooming. They also opened up the door to many improvements in men’s self-care. Queer Eye for the Straight Guy’s original cast also used the term “Manscaping”, before it was commodified and made into a commercial tool for male grooming.

“Manscaping” is any grooming done below the neck. This guide will focus on this. This includes pubic hair, chest hair, and even some butt hair. It’s all the hard-to-reach or sensitive areas. Before television became popular, men’s grooming was done in secret by women using their bathrooms. It’s like a speakeasy, with hair on the ground and disposable razors.

Men’s grooming has seen a steady increase in popularity since the mid-2000s as more men are able to learn about and enjoy manscaping benefits.

Cosmopolitan found that 69% of men prefer to trim their pubic hair, while 17% prefer to shave it off completely. Surprisingly, 70% of women prefer that their men be trimmed.

Because manscaping is more widely accepted, men are more open to trying new things. However, asking questions can still be a shameful or embarrassing experience. This is why the Man’s Guide to Manscaping was created.

What is a grooming tool? Why can’t I use my trimmer instead?

Just No. Stop it. Stop using the electric trimmer for facial hair on your back, chest, or balls. Do you like nicks or cuts? You probably don’t want to cut and nick your skin, so specific body trimmers and razors are made for each area of your body. However, there is something more serious to be aware of when you think about manscaping. It’s bacteria.

Jason Tetro, a microbiologist, told Dollar Shave Club that the pubic area is home to its own independent microbial community. Although most bacteria is similar to those found in other parts of the body, introducing transient bacteria using a trimmer could alter the environment and cause skin problems.

One scenario could result in acne around the pubic area. The worst case scenario could lead to a staph infection. Take it seriously. Long-term consequences can be caused by mixing bacteria from different areas.

Blending in is crucial

A patchy beard can make it difficult to grow. This is also true for areas that you are tending to. It is important to learn how to blend your hair so that it matches up. This means that if you are going to shave your chest, you will need to trim your happy trails and pubic area. It is the same for those below. “The carpet should match the chest rug.” This is best done while you are using your trimmer. Your chest should have at least one trimmer longer than the trimmer that you use for your pubic area. This will ensure that you look professional after your manscaping sessions.
