I'd do it if I were you, I personally like it and it's very common. But you have to be careful of irritating the skin down there. It hurts and itches. On top of that you get little red bumps. If your gonna do it, use HELLA hot water, as hot as you can take for a minute or two, after that use some conditioner and let it sit for a few minutes.After you rinse off the conditioner use some shaving cream and a very good razor (guys work best) I use the ProGlide, after exfoliate and use conditioner. When your done use a really conditioning lotion and wait like thirty minutes to put on underwear, it reduces irritation. And when little red bumps start showing up, exfoliate, you can make a really good exfoliatent out of brown sugar and water (just add water till it's a thick paste). Hope I helped, this stuff sucks to figure out by trial and error trust me. Thanks for answering mine, it made me laugh. Oh and don't listen to that other person, go against the grain or else you'll have to shave more often.
Trial and error *shiver*
