Before posting here, I read the shaving FAQ, and I just want to put it out there that i'm not interested in this cosmetically, but today my vulva felt quite sore thanks to being very dry today, wearing hot tights on an uncomfortable itchy school chair, so I shaved just the bit underneath where it was sore where the hair was prickling. However, I THEN thought to consider that I will probably be engaging in sexual behaviour (probably intercourse) this weekend, and I would like to know if the hair will have grown enough to not be stubbly and hurt by then, or if I will just have to shave it off daily before then to stop it getting painful. You see, both I and my partner really want to be sexual in this time as we're not going to see eachother for a while afterwards, but I don't really want some infection or stubble ruining this time for us :c Not entirely sure what to do with it from a comfort standpoint (I prefer it grown, but I only shaved it because it was jabbing the side of my clitoris and hurting a lot, since I recently trimmed it). Is there any way I can make sure the area is soft for the weekend? I really want the time I have with my partner to be special, and stubble and infections doesn't reek of romance to me. It just sounds painful, and pain is not something I really want if I can avoid it. My partner is very understanding and if I wanted to say no to sex, I could, but I really, REALLY want to go ahead with this and so does he, especially since this is going to be his first time, and we've both been excited for a while, since he's away in education it's been hard to see eachother much, and his funds mean it may be another month or so, just based on that, but then exams factor in too and we're both in the middle of exams at the moment so the chance of seeing him in the next 2 months is slim. He's been so considerate to me, buying lubricant and making sure i'm comfortable with the idea of this and finding out from me what I am and am not okay with, and we're both 110% sure we're ready for this, but I don't want to be giving him a lovely mess of pinpricks from my stubble. NOT the best gift you could recieve, eh? I'd just like some advice on how to get it to be a soft area for this weekend and how to minimize infection while being sexual in this manner (in regards to the hair, again)? Of course there are other sexual options aside from intercourse, which we will most probably be doing at some point, as we've both said, but those aren't of any issue right now, i'd just like to know about the whole intercourse thing and the stubble. On a side note, I am on the birth control pill and have backup plans for it's failure, if it does fail, so no worries there. Welp, I think that covered everything =) =NekoNightly=
There's no way to guarantee that the area you shaved won't be stubbly, but honestly, a bit of stubble isn't likely to make a huge difference one way or the other. Might it be a bit prickly for him? Yes, but it mostly likely won't be extremely uncomfortable, and a bit of extra lube can go a long way.
You can keep shaving if you like, but there's always the possibility with that of more irritation for you, so that is something you'll want to consider. Per risks of infection, if you're practicing safer sex, it's really not going to be a concern.
