Okay guys, if you’ve made it this far you’re probably either down with manscaping or at least open to the idea. If you’re still on the fence, however, let’s look at some of the benefits of manscaping. Manscaping may sound like a chore but you’ll find that once you get into the swing of things you’ll wonder how you ever did without it.
There are many benefits to manscaping. Some of these you might have considered while others might be new. Keep in mind that we define manscaping as an overall dedication to personal grooming, hygiene, and appearance, and not just shaving your crotch.
Finding Your Hidden InchesOkay, it’s not the ONLY part of manscaping but it’s one that you thought of. It’s simple science. Take a ruler and stick it in some tall grass. Now stand it up on a putting green. Now do the same thing with your penis and tell me in which instance it looks bigger?
Keeping yourself trimmed up down below is a great way to accentuate the male member, present yourself as a clean and sanitary lover, and of course, make yourself look a little more impressive. It’s also a great way to get kicked off of a golf course.
Safer for Sex
This may sound crazy but hear us out: bacteria and yeast love warm, moist places. They not only love it, they thrive in it. Moisture sticks to hair much better than bare skin.
Where does the worst B.O. originate? Under the arms. What’s under our arms? Hair. But beating the crotch funk is not the only benefit of manscaping down below.
Several STDs thrive in the same environment and it doesn’t’ take a rocket scientist to figure out if you control that environment better you’ll reduce your risk.
Shave for Success
All porn actors shave their- no, not just that career! Studies have consistently shown that men who take more pride in their appearance are more successful in their professional lives than their scrubby counterparts.
We’ve said it many times before: manscaping is about putting your best foot forward and presenting the best version of yourself. By taking the time to take care of yourself you’ll feel more confident and be more productive. Others around you will notice this and you’ll be more successful in work as well as life.
You’ll Sweat Less
We already covered how moisture likes hair but let’s talk about removing the moisture from the equation. Our bodies are covered with hair to help regulate our body temperature. Sweat exists to help cool us down.
By removing the hair from the picture, this unexpected benefit of manscaping will allow your body to do its job more efficiently, cooling you down with less sweat. As a bonus you’ll also reduce the amount of time you spend smelling like a hot bucket of chum on a summers day.
Fewer Ingrown Hairs
It’s an old wives’ tale that once you shave somewhere it grows back thicker. Think about that for a moment. If that were true then wouldn’t all of us be walking around looking like we’ve got Chewbacca strapped to our face?
By using a quality blade to sculpt your face and body you’ll actually cut down (pun intended) on the number of ingrown hairs you experience. Ingrown hairs are unsightly, painful, and definitely not on the sex night menu.
If you’ve been fortunate enough to avoid them at this point in your life, believe us when we say you’re not missing anything.
Look YoungerLet that baby face out to play. It’s a fact that men with less hair look younger, especially among those of us who go gray a little on the early side. This is particularly true when your body hair starts to go gray as well.
By the time we get to the point where we’re sporting a salt and pepper sweater on 60% of our body we probably wouldn’t mind shaving a few years off.
Get More Oral Sex
Guys, don’t you prefer it when a woman is more maintained down below? Believe it or not that fuzzy door swings both ways. Many women already view this act as a chore and something they’d rather not do in the first place anyway, do we really want to give them more reasons not to?
While you may think it’s nice that you’ve added that extra benefit of her being able to floss while going down, odds are she doesn’t feel that way. Keep it neat, fellas.
You Get to Do New Things
Variety and new experiences are part of what makes life worth living and in no way do we think that’s an exaggeration. Manscaping opens up a whole new world of possibilities for clothing, cleaning products, and pampering options such as spa treatments, massages, and more.
You may not have opinions on face scrubs, massage styles, or beard conditioners now but it’s a fun world to jump into.
There are many benefits to manscaping but overall you’ll find that you’ll look and feel better, healthier, and more confident. Think of anything you spend time on as a hobby; working on an old car, building a treehouse, etc. There is pride in putting forth the time and effort it takes to do something and do it well.
Your appearance should be no different. Remember, for all of the benefits of manscaping the best one by far is pride and self-worth. If an old car is worth it, aren’t you?
