Many men face the age-old question when it comes to ass hair - to remove, or not to remove? The desire for the answer to this question has plagued me for too long. It was time to find out for myself. The Problem: Whilst ass hair does have its purpose (discussed later), excess hair can be problematic. Over the years, my bathroom trips have increased in length, increasing in parallel with the frustration of the existence of the jungle barrier between my asshole and the toilet water. Wiping became a huge chore, toilet paper expense went through the roof, and the fear of missing a stray dingleberry boosted my anxiety to unprecedented levels. The analogy that I use is 'like wiping peanut butter out of a shag carpet'. Wet wipes were an essential tool, however this can easily lull you into a false sense of security. Try wiping with the assistance of wet wipes for a month, then see what it's like when you're forced into a situation where there are none (public bathroom, friends house etc.). Hell. That's what it's like. The Treatment: At age 22, I decided enough was enough. No longer would I allow my anal garden to interfere with my day, no longer would I plan my bathroom trips around the rest of my schedule (trying to be home at the right moments as much as possible). The war was to begin. I knew I had several options. Hours of internet research left me more confused than when I had started, there were so many methods! Trim with an electric razer, shave with a wet razer, hell even wax the damn thing. Or... the most controversial of all - hair removal cream. The public opinion was divided - many swore by the convenience and time-saving method of hair removal cream. However, many others warned of the potential for skin burns, re-growth issues (itchiness, swamp ass, etc.) and the most terrifying of all - LOUD farts. One day, I had had enough. No more peanut butter carpet. This ended today. On the 10th January I ventured to the local supermarket, and found the most appropriate product I could find (Veet - Chest and Body Hair Removal Cream). The instruction labels specifically noted that it was not to be used in the genital/anal area, and was only suitable for the chest/arms/legs areas. Fuck that, I said. These motherfuckers know exactly what's up. I'm going for it. Within an hour of my purchase, there I was, stripped fully naked, armed with a large bottle of Veet and a small sponge for the removal stage. A quick skim of the instructions and I was ready to dive head first. I applied a pretty generous amount to the sponge and went to town, fully coating the area on and around my anus. I wasn't playing this one safe. No half measures. The entire procedure took about 10 to 15 minutes in total, I went for 2 applications as I felt the first hadn't removed as much as I'd like. By the second application, things were looking good. Smooth as a baby's bum, you could say. As the internet warned, there was some level of irritation. The area felt a little sore, but by the next day, little to no side effects (from the cream) were apparent. Great. Harmless, I thought. The next few days, however, would tell the true story, as I had to begin to learn to live with a bare, hairless ass. Progress Log! The purpose of this post is to educate. To allow my fellow man to learn from my experiences, and to make a better informed choice about their own ass hair. 15/01/2019 It has been 5 days since the procedure. Re-growth has been slow but noticeable, there is a small amount of stubble, mostly at the top nearer to where I had a small amount of back hair (also removed in the process). Some notable observations: Wiping - Greatly improved effectiveness and a noticeable reduction in time taken. Wiping time often sub-1 minute, allowing for hugely efficient bathroom breaks. Little to no fear of dingleberrys, occasional use of 1 wet wipe (just to be sure), although results remain consistent. Very satisfied in this department Farts - This is where the trouble begins. As my research told me, ass hair serves a very important purpose - to muffle farts. You may not realise, but all that hair acts as an excellent audio barrier between your farts and the outside world. They are louder. They are harder to conceal. BUT, not as much as the internet would have you believe. I am still able to control it when I absolutely need to. My primary concern was in situations such as during lectures, however thus far I am yet to slip up. Perhaps this is a testament to my excellent sphincter control, but so far, I'm yet to regret the procedure. Regrowth - Noticeable stubble regrowth, however itchiness and discomfort has NOT begun so far. If the tales from the internet are to be believed, I've got some weeks of hell ahead of me (chafing, itchiness, etc.). But as of now, no regrets. Will update as close to daily as appropriate. Thanks for reading and I hope you'll follow me along into the re-growth stage of my journey.
