Male waxing is a method of male pubic hair removal. It is thought to have become more acceptable in the 1990s , though the true number of users is unknown. Male waxing is popular in the body building and male modelling community. There are several types of wax suitable for hair removal.
Waxing is accomplished by spreading a wax combination thinly over the skin. A cloth or paper strip is then pressed on the top and ripped off with a quick movement against the direction of hair growth. This removes the wax along with the hair and dead skin cells, leaving the skin smooth. Home waxing kits have become increasingly popular over the years.
Although waxing the male genitals makes them look cleaner, it is also to improve sensation along the shaft of the penis and the scrotum. By removing the hair in these areas, the sense of touch is improved in the skin, allowing for a more intense or pleasurable sensation during sexual activities.
An additional drawback is the relative loss of pheromones, which are enhanced by the presence of hair on the genitals. Pheromones play an important part in sexual attraction.
Waxing should not be done on areas of skin affected by warts, pimples, moles or rashes or on skin that is irritated, chapped or suffering from sunburn. Never apply wax to peeling, broken skin or varicose veins.
