In actuality, your anus has natural bacteria that helps fight infection, and if you clean your body regularly, your butt is as clean as the rest of you. To be sure, body hair does serve a purpose. It keeps us warm when it’s cold and helps to regulate body temperature. The hair on our bums is nature’s way of preventing chaffing while acting as a barrier between skin and hot/cold objects. Maybe that’s why this area of the body is so sensitive?

While many men like their body hair, a good number of guys want to look and feel smooth “back there”. For body builders and others involved in athletic sports, this makes sense when you consider that less hair can mean less sweating and odor. If you hit the gym regularly, you know exactly what I mean. Just keeping it real folks!

Not all men shave their butts because no one really cares about your butt unless you are not straight (gay). But majority of women shave their butts, a woman’s body is expected to be clean and perfect. With that in mind, many ladies wax their butts because hair takes really long to grow back as compared to shaving it. Today we have many products claiming to be perfect hair removers, some of them work but others are just fabs. In my opinion, you should use a body hair groomer / hair removal laser device/ safety razor and a disposable razor to shave your butt.

Foreplayers prefer clean butt, vagina and penis.

Choose the right shaving tool

When it comes to shaving your pubic hairs, you need to use the right tool. I know we have many of them out there, but not everything sold on the market works, don’t even fall for those highly priced grooming tools. You can use a regular branded safety razor / a body hair groomer . These two shaving tools are friendly to the skin and they really give a close smooth irritation free shave. When it comes to choosing safety razors, you have to opt for a long handled razor. Why long handle razor? – this type of razors have long handles and they have some weight on them, so you don’t have to use too much pressure when shaving your bum. There are different ways to maintain pubic hair styles.


Get a mirror for butt hair removal

You will need a bathroom wall mirror to see the upper butt and a small hand held mirror for viewing below the butt. Ladies, you have to be very gentle when shaving below the butt because it’s close to other sensitive parts which I might not talk about here. I will explain how to use any of these two mirrors as we go on with this post.


Take a shower for cleaning butt hair

This is a basic step which I assume you know of, but still, I can’t take that risk because most men will ignore this part, so I have to stress it out very well. It doesn’t hurt or consume lots of time to have a full body shower. Make sure you clean your buttocks very well. You can set shower water to a warm temperature, because warm water can open skin pores and also make hair follicles very soft and easy to shave. Using warm water while showering will also kill any germs around your butt. After taking that shower, use a clean dry towel to remove water on your body, that butt has to be wet free.


Use shaving gel for anus hair removal

After getting rid of shower water from the butt, apply shaving cream / soap to the butt. This will make hair on the butt very soft. If you use soap, try to mix it with water to make huge foam and then apply on your butt. Wet shaving is very safe because it will save you from getting ingrown hairs & razor bumps on your butt. However, avoid using very sensitive shaving gels / soaps.


Start shaving butt hair

Let us get started now. If you have decided to use a safety razor, wet it by running tapping water over the razor, and then make your first stroke. However, hair on your butt grows to a different direction, so make sure you follow the grain, otherwise, shaving against it will result into serious painful ingrown hairs & bumps. Add more shaving gel / soap until the all but is shaved.


Rinse your buttocks for removing anus hairs

Rinse off the shaving gel using cold water, this will help in closing skin pores and at the same time help you notice areas left with hair. If you have some parts with hair, apply shaving gel / soap on them and shave them clean. If the razor gets clogged by the hair & gel, rinse it in water and clean off the obstacles and then go ahead with shaving that butt clean.


Apply antiseptic to the anus

Use an antiseptic product to sooth your butt skin, it will also kill germs and prevent bumps and any other related infections. If you don’t use antiseptic, you will leave your butt’s skin irritated and prone to getting bumps. In this case, I recommend branded antiseptic solution, to be on safer side, it’s very easy to apply and it reacts immediately after applying it.


Use baby powder to soften butt skin

Ladies are more likely to use baby powder to soften and dry butt skin. For men, you can stop at an antiseptic, no one want to know if your skin is smooth, though it’s not bad to use baby powder on your butt.

Wear clean and dry pants to keep butt clean

Guys, don’t wear the same underwear every day, try to be hygienic, at least have 7 under wares with you, 1 clean underwear per day. Very few ladies wear the same underwear twice, at least they know how to stay clean down there, but guys, always take things for granted. Dirty under wears harbors bacteria & germs which might into a fresh shaved butt.

    Removing butt hair means giving ways to itching and sweat flowing irritating skin. It causes disease.

    1. You are wrong. Let me tell you good benefits. I started by shaving mine off when I was 15, then had it waxed off for about 10 years and finally had laser hair removal a couple of years ago so it’s no longer an issue at all.


      You stay quite a bit cooler, which is a great benefit, especially when working out or if you live in a warmer climate.
      Aesthetically speaking it looks much better. I remember one time when I was still getting waxed I just had my back waxed, but didn’t get a brazilian or my butt done and didn’t shave my bum for about 4 weeks. I had just gotten out of the shower and my girlfriend when she saw my backside from a distance asked why did I wear shorts in the shower? I laughed and said, those are my wookie shorts…she laughed and said oh my, that’s scary! Needless to say the next time I got in the shower I shaved it off. Also, I prefer to wear thong bikini bottoms to the beach, so it would look horrible if I left my hair down there!
      Comfort – To me it just feels much more comfortable not to have hair down below.
      Cleanliness – When you drop a deuce and have a ton of butt hair, cleanup is a pain in the ass (pun intended)…and dingle berries are for real! Since I don’t have butt hair, keeping myself cleaner down there is easier and it benefits the environment too since I don’t have to use 3/4’s of a roll of toilet paper and flush 3 or 4 times!
      No Odors – Hair tends to trap odors easily and since I don’t have any hair down there, I don’t tend to smell like a wet dog below the waist, which is great for obvious reasons.
      Increased Self confidence – Because my butt doesn’t resemble Chewbaca’s…or smell like it either and I know it’s always clean I have more self confidence. Which leads to the next benefit.
      Sexual benefits – When I had hair down there, part of me was worried that I wasn’t clean or might have had some odors down there when my girlfriend would want to go down on me. I can’t count how many girls over the years that were somewhat surprised at discovering that I manscaped down below at first. Many of them mentioned how they loved that fact, because it looked better, didn’t smell and they didn’t have to worry about errant hairs during that activity that they loved giving oral sex more often. My wife mentions how much she appreciates me not having all that hair down there at least once a month it seems!
      Increased sensation – There’s also the benefit that with no hair sensation is also heightened too, which goes along with the benefit above.


      As others have stated, the friction from your butt cheeks rubbing together with no butt hair can take some getting used to. The use of baby powder or lotion helps, or wearing thong underwear too.

      I agree to this that the sensation if you happen to be sweating down below also takes some getting used to. With hair present it tends to disperse it and probably helps absorb it a bit or evaporate quicker.

      I’m sure there are a few other Pro’s I’m forgetting now.

  2. foxykelly says:

    first trim, then put Elma cream (local anaesthesia) on for 45mins or so and laser it. You may have to repeat it every two weeks or so initially but after about 5 repeats or so you’ll only need to do it every month, then 2 months, then 6 months or longer. Laser is the best way.

  3. Leena788775 says:

    We are all created unique from each other. And we are given body that we should be thankful for. Okay, my answer to your question is. Maybe you should try to shave it all, or trim it. I have known some guy, shaving their pubic hair so that it will not grow too much. My comment regarding to your statement about having sex with your gf is,

    You should know all the responsibilities. Premarital sex is common now a days, but still, as a Christian I will encourage you to respect your girlfriend, love her and protect her as much as you can do.. sex is fun, but there’s a right timing to that.

  4. Many men and women have hair on their buttocks and around their anus. The hair is naturally there with a purpose, it provides ventilation and protection. Sometimes there is a lot of hair that is not always fresh, clean and sexy to the touch. Both men and women therefore choose to remove it.

    What you need

    Shaving your butt is almost the same as shaving your pubic hair and / or bikini line. It is even comparable to shaving your face. You need a shaving gel (or other shaving product), a sharp razor, a hand mirror and possibly a clipper or scissors. You need the hand mirror to see everything properly.

    The hair clipper or scissors to remove long hair against the skin first. Using a sharp razor blade is important to prevent skin irritation (red bumps, itching). From a hygiene point of view, I’d recommend using a disposable razor blade if you don’t use an electric body hair trimmer.

    Remove the long hairs

    Is this the first time you shave the buttocks (and / or buttock and / or anus)? In that case I’d advise you to first remove the hair as close to the skin as possible, which can be done with scissors or with a clipper. Take your time for this and be careful. The shorter hairs will be easier to cut off by the razor and the space between the blades will not be blocked by the long hairs.

    Hot shower and apply shaving gel

    I’d advise you to take a warm shower before you shave. The warm water makes the hair soft, the skin smooth and removes bacteria. Dry your skin but leave the buttocks slightly moist. If necessary, re-wet / moisten them with a lukewarm washcloth.

    Then apply shaving gel, shaving oil or soap to the areas you want to shave. You can also use shaving cream, but the disadvantage (especially when shaving the anus) is that you can not see where you are shaving. Leave the shaving product on for a minute.

    Shaving the buttocks

    Now grab a sharp (new) razor and make it wet. Stand up and turn your butt to a standing mirror so that you can see everything clearly. Start shaving your buttocks. Shave with the hair direction the first time.

    Rinse the rods from the razor blade with cold water after each pull. Not yet shaved smooth enough? Then shave again (insert shaving gel again!) Against the hair direction. The risk of this is that you can suffer more from shaving irritation, such as temporary bumps and red spots.

    Shaving the anus

    Do you also want to shave the area around the buttocks and the anus? Then grab the hand mirror and squat over the mirror so that you can see everything clearly. Shave as described above.

    Cold water and keep up

    Are you satisfied with the result. Rinse first the skin with lukewarm water and then with cold water. Just continue, it is equally cold but you can prevent a part of the skin irritation! Do you suffer from itching after shaving? Then apply some baby powder the first few days after shaving.

    Just like with pubic hair, it is now a matter of weekly keeping. Shave the buttocks regularly (if the hairs are still small) and check every day for new hairs to grow.

  5. Stepny Gonslaves says:

    Here is the best reason why you shouldn’t shave your touche.

    You know the god awful sound that balloons make when you rub them together.

    That will be your butt.

    The hair on your posterior acts as a buffer.

    A buffer to what you ask?

    To the whoop whoops.

    Without the hair to allow for the smooth release of the methane build up due to some your digestive inefficiencies well….

    Everyone is going to hear about it.

    You will walk about making little embarrassing sounds which could have been prevented by keeping your rear mane intact.

  6. I don’t think you should shave your butt. When it grows back it will itch and get prickly. Plus, if you sweat a lot, usually your butt hair would soak it up, but if you have no hair, the sweat will run in between your butt cheeks and make them slippery and it feels weird when you start to walk. Your butt just doesn’t feel right. I dunno, you might like the benefits of shaving your butt though. My ex did it all the time. He said it was so his poop doesn’t get stuck in his hair and I guess he felt cleaner. Use your own razor, and a new one at that.

  7. NEVER SHAVE YOUR BUTTCRACK HAIRS….SHAVE ASSCHEEKS…….CITING AN INCIDENT TO YOU…..I have recently made a mistake in my life, and I offer my story to alt.tasteless, that you may learn from my error. It all started, as many things do, with me having trouble sh-itting. No, I was not constipated; this was not a regularity problem but a matter of technique. It seems my asss-hair had grown to such a length that tiny grogans were constantly getting tied up in the matted jungle between my buttcrack. It led to much frustration, with me KNOWING that I still had something to drop, but unable to shake the tenacious turd loose from its butthair dwelling. Eventually I would have to do two things: either reach down with some paper and try to pinch off the lingering loaf (which required careful precision to avoid smearing the creature all over my rear, especially since I had no way of seeing what I was doing) or just go for broke, start wiping, and hope that I could remove all the leftover fecal matter before the toilet paper reached its Can’t-Be-Flushed threshold. I was contemplating this problem, when I had what seemed at the time to be a bright idea. “Hey! This is my butt and my butt-hair, right? So why don’t I just eliminate all the hair, and then my grogans will flow out like beer from a keg!” I said to myself. It is a statement that will go down in history with a lot of other regretted statements. “How many Indians could there be?” said by General Custer. “Looks like a good day for a drive!” by JFK. “There! America On-Line now has complete Usenet access!” by some idiot system tech. Such was my anal shaving idea. I performed the operation that night, with a cheap disposable razor and a towel to sit on. Starting from the bottom, and shaving from the crack to the cheeks, I began the arduous process of ridding my asss of hair. Occassionally, I would have to clean the razor of accumulated hair and miscellaneous slime, which I did by wiping it on the towel. Slowly, my twin mounds and the between-ravine began to resemble the hairless cheeks of a newborn baby. Finally, I wiped the razor one last time, and surveyed my work. The towel was covered with a pile of hair. My asss was smooth as ivory. I smiled, satisfied, thinking my troubles were over. Little did I know. I now have a great respect for anal-hair. Like everything in this world God created, it has its mighty purpose in existence. It was only after I had removed it that I started to learn how much I had been taking it for granted. For one, it provides friction. I learned this the next day, when I walked out into the sun heading for class. After climbing two flights of stairs and starting to sweat, I started to notice something unpleasant. The sweat was accumulating in my crack, and was causing the unpleasant sensation of my two assscheeks sliding past each other with every step. I thought about going to the bathroom and wiping it off, but had to get to class. Eventually, I thought, it would dry. Unfortunately, it did dry, but only after mingling with the microscopic sh-it- molecules lingering around my brown starfish. When I stood up after class, my cheeks were stuck together with a slimy sticky shhit/sweat combination. As I made my way back to my dorm, it started to itch. DAMN, did it itch! Felt like a swarm of ants was making its way up and down my crack. Fighting to keep from jamming my hand down there and scratching away, I rushed back to the dorm. Unfortunately again, this exertion caused me to sweat, and when I finally reached my room, my cheeks were sliding back and forth against each other like a pair of horny cane-toads. I quickly dropped my pants, and attempted to dry my asss off by sticking it in front of a fan and spreading my cheeks. As I pulled the two mounds of flesh apart, a horrible stench burst free and filled the room. Every dog within a 4 block radius started to howl. I had it worst of all, as the ripe aroma of festering sh-it/sweat went into the fan and blew back into my face. I fought to keep from heaving. And as I sat there, fighting vomit, my asss cheeks spread and dripping, with the concentrated aroma of my body odor mixed with the tangy smell of my own shhit blowing right into my face, I had only one thought: “It will be like this until the hair grows back. Weeks.” Later on, trying to deal as best I could, wiping my asss at every opportunity, I discovered another wonderful use for asss-hair – ventilation. I attempted to launch a fa-rt, only to have it get stuck between my buttcrack. Apparently, with no hair, the two pink twins can get vacuum sealed together, and the result was a frustrating fa-rt that slid up and down between my cheeks like a lost gerbil. As if that wasn’t enough, I am now enduring further torture. As anyone who has ever shaved anything knows, when hair is first growing in, it comes in as stubble. Imagine your asss having the texture of a brillo pad. Well, that is what I am dealing with now. It is a hellish torture, and there are many times when I just look out the window and contemplate why I shouldn’t just jump out and get it all over with in one fleshy splat, rather than endure this constant agony.

  8. I m bad girl. So may be I m wrong. But I shave very rarely. Instead rub buttcrack daily to keep it clean. Keeping the area clean by washing in the fold regions is important and must be done twice a day. Collection of materials in the fold region of the ‘butt’ becomes into a pilo nidal sinus with pus and it needs to be operated. Shaving of the hair is done at times before surgical procedures or regularly, depending on one’s own wish and will. I think surgeons like it shaved not real lovers.

  9. Last weekend I had the most success shaving my bum ever. All I did was get in the shower, get the water hot, and after I was done showering I took a razor (one that I have retired from facial use) and just used that. If you’re pretty hair, it is going to clog up with hair after each stroke so you have to rinse it out with the shower head. This took a while, but it resulted in the smoothest bum ever! My advice is to just be careful (but I didn’t cut myself, even without using shaving cream). You don’t have to shave your whole butt, either. I just shave the bit where the business might be going on. Since you can’t see, it can be a little bit of a challenge, but just feel around and you’ll get a smooth butt in no time!

  10. Hairy asses are fucking hot, and you should strongly reconsider any hair removal down there. Not just because it’s a travesty to waste such superior genetics, but because of the health concerns including ingrown hair, and the sandpaper like quality that will result in the weeks following the removal (can you imagine what having sandpaper in between your cheeks would feel like?) A very moderate trim is a good idea, but gods no, don’t shave. Embrace your hair, it’s a GOOD thing.

  11. Body hair is nature’s visual cue that says “this male is ready to copulate”. That’s why we get it in on our face, chest, arms, legs and butt. Not all ethnicities are the same of course: the combo of my Slavic and Scottish mother with my Italian father made me less hairy than him. Also we are attenuated through media and advertising to think hairless ultra-lean guys are the standard for attractiveness. Stick around here or go to anyof the Gone Wild sub-reddits and you’ll see different. Finally, a smooth shaved butt with hairy legs can look silly. Plus it is a bitch to maintain (I went through the same thing you are going through in my late teens/early 20s). Still, some guys are devoted depilators. Go get a full Brazilian wax once and I promise it will make you love your body hair more 😉

  12. bananaseeker says:

    Butt hair is not a bad thing at all. I accidentally walked in on my best friend standing naked in front of the mirror one day. I will never get that sexy image of him bent forward with that nice fuzzy ass out of my mind, lol. And that’s just fine with me. Turn on for gays 🙂

  13. My advice is to just trim it. It takes some practice, but works great for me. Still keeps a little there so you don’t get terrible swamp ass and you won’t get that prickly feeling from stubble. I use the electric razor I use to give myself a haircut (different blades of course) and I just put a guard on it and trim away.

  14. Get an electric razor. Seriously was the best decision I ever made. It trims the hair really close but doesn’t leave you with razor burn, and since it doesn’t cut the hair at the follicle, it doesn’t leave much room for ingrown hair. It leaves you with a nice peach fuzzy feel

  15. John Lendoz says:

    I am 18 and Italian. I’m assuming that my Italian heritage is what lead to my incredibly hairy ass. I have not had sex yet but I take it a hairy ass would not be considered attractive in the bedroom which is why I want to get rid of it. I thought about shaving it but when researching the idea I came across a horror story that completely turned me off the idea. Also I would think it would be unsafe to get nair that close to the anus. I know this is odd but please help! I have no idea what to do. Can you also list any sideeffects.
