hi!
you can either shave or wax it, both having advantages and disadvantages!
if you shave, the hair will start growing again two/three days after, and it could itch. if you wax it, i suppose the hair will start growing minimum one week after, and it does hurt when getting off the wax...
i've shaved, but it itched so much three days after, that next time i do it i'll go for wax!
anyway, if u aswell go for wax, its better that the first time you go to an expert, in a beauty center, or some friend with serious experience. as u said, the skin of your genitals is very sensitive
good luck!

after shaving my 'special spot' my skin got red and irritated, after waxing i didn't...of course i was red...but not as irritated, or itchy when the hair was growing back. I suggest using wax personally, i have sensitive skin as well Just know where you want to have hair, maybe even make a map...sometimes doing things by eye can end up in half of yoru pybic hair being gone! GOOD LUCK!

I just did a quick search for waxing and shaving pubic hair. And viola, I came up with these. They should probably answer all your questions and then some.

He wants you to shave, but, do you want to shave?

Thanks, youcancallmepunk, you just saved some Advocates a bit of work. Corvino, have a look at those links- you'll definitely find them helpful.

However, I do think it's also a good idea to discuss Laurae's point. You haven't mentioned much about what YOU want for yourself. I personally believe that whenever we do something to or with our bodies- whether it be something impermanent like shaving, or something permanent like a tattoo, it's healthiest when we're doing it first and foremost for ourselves. So please take a bit of time to consider not only what your boyfriend wants, but what you want also.

Thanks for the advice. And in answer to your question, yes im perfectly happy with it. I found the best ever product for bikini lines! Boots Botanics Soothing Hair Removal Cream. Ive used immac in the past and i just end up blotchy because my skins very sensitive, or it doesnt remove all the hair. But this one. OMG! silky smooth! i'd recomend it to anyone!!!

If I recall right, there used to be Boots shops in Canada and maybe the US a decade or two ago, but they're now just in the UK. It's important to remember that 'bikini line' refers only to the bit of flesh between the top of the thigh and the mons, and that products intended for use there should bever be used on your vulva, okay? That could cause some serious irritation and even harm.

Anything.

Some girls and guys like pubic hair more than others, but not one who's expecting to have any partnered sex in their lives can fairly expect a partner to be without it, because it's part of the human body. You should remove your pubic hair if you want to, and only then.

you should make your boy friend buy the wax. he's the one who wants you smooth. i'm going throught the same thing with my boyfriend, i'm perfectly happy with being trim. but he wants it all gone. so i told him he can buy the wax. and it worked.

Hey, manipulation and/or mind games do NOT = good sex and healthy relationships. If you don't want to remove your pubic hair, say so. If you do, do it. It really is that simple.
