your skin will get more and more accustomed as you do it for a while.
in addition to the great advice already given... you can use visine (yes, the eyedrops) to reduce redness and swelling of bumps you already have.

You know, i dont know if they have them where you are, but here i buy an Intuition razor.
It has a circle of .. shaving stuff ( lol) around the blades, it helps alot. :)

Ive been getting waxed for a while, so i dont shave my kitty anymore lol
But i use the same razor for my legs, ect and i love it.

As well, after you shave, wear a nice pair of cotton panties. Dont wear anything lacy or silky, it will just irritate you. Use baby powder to smooth things out afterwards as well.

Everything mentioned above works well..well, I cant really comment on the soft panty thing, everything else though.

nair or veet also causes my skin to burn when I have used it, not the best thing for that area eh.

even though i was shaving in my teen years i just got so tire of it.....too embarrassed to go for hot bikini waxes i used to do it on my own up until 2 years ago, while showering and my sugar was dropping (hypoglycemia) my hands started shaking and i missed my straight line then i said to hell with it and decided to take it all off. i use softgel shaving cream for women with aloe. after i'm completely dried off i would use a baby lotion with aloe and baby powder. seems like it's time consuming but the end results are great. i'm not sure how often women goes between shavings but how does 5-7 days before stubble starts to come back sound? is that good?

oh, i also do the same for my legs and go about 10-14 days between shavings, my arm pits, i stopped shaving there since i no longer have any hair growth there. i was always told that if women constantly shave in the tender areas, including the legs the longer it takes for hair growth to come back and then eventually you would no longer be shaving in that area. is that true? years ago i used to have to shave my legs every 3rd day now it's 10-14 days?

I didn't read the whole thread here so not sure if this has been mentioned or not...

EXFOLIATE!! Use a good scrub while in the shower to help clear away some of the extra dead skin.. it will help keep all the pores open and prevent a lot of those irritating bumps, or if they are there already, it helps to clear them up.

I can't shave without getting them, so I prefer to do the waxing. Lasts longer, fewer bumps, less irritating, softer regrowth as the hair is pointed instead of blunt (less friction burn!!)...

I also like using the Body Shop for Men shaving cream.. the kind you need the shaving brush for. It works very well. Even more fun when your man is doing it for you!! LOL!! But that's a whole other thread...

I've always had this problem too until I started using a body wash called "Body Clear" . . . it has salysylic acid in it and if you soak, then use the scrub, then shave, then use the scrub . . .

I read somewhere that alot of porn stars use neosporin to shave, so I tried it.

Well.....I'm no porn star but I use neosporin or any of the off brand antibiotic cremes will still work as well and you won't clog up your razor. Remember to shave your muffin FIRST so the blade isn't dull, then your pits and legs can get the rest of the blade. I just use soap as a shaving lubricant, it works great and keeps the blade clean. I've been clean apart from a little soul patch for years upon years.....with no irritation once I tried antibiotic creme upon the advice of a friend....and, it's very inexpensive, you can find antibiotic creme that works fine at a Dollar store....

hey, maybe she was a porn star.....

Didn't know that about the soap.....hmmm.....I use a triple or quad blade too, and shave no less than every three days....they're right, the skin gets used to it, and the regular shaving is exfoliating.....

You're absolutely right...

I've had the privilege of having the opportunity to shave my last three girlfriends, and the two essential key points are to shave with the grain whenever possible, and to apply a lotion. I prefer Gold Bond medicated lotion. It tends to reduce possible razor burn to a BARE minimum. ;)

A few points to remember…
1. Take your time…

2. Trim as much hair as you can with a scissors… this makes all the difference!

3. Use a man’s razor with a new blade. I prefer the Gillette Fusion 6 blade razor. For some reason, the women’s razors just aren’t sharp enough to provide a smooth, clean cut with the fewest blade passes.

4. Put a pillow under her bottom. This gives you a better view (Yum), and gives you a better angle & increased control of your razor, and it gives her the ability to spread her legs wider, affording a better shaving surface. (Not to mention being wickedly sensual)

5. Always use HOT water. I fill a small wide container that won’t tip over and rinse my razor frequently.

And remember…

Pubic shaving usually leads to a good tonguing and possibly a motorized love tool afterwards, so when you both are done, wash her again, and re-apply the medicated lotion, and apply a talc, or baby powder to lessen friction irritation.

I like being hairless at the pole and south till the end of the canyon. ( I love oral).

I have had a lot of luck with Veet for sensitive skin and after for a few day with Noxima Sooth and smooth bikini cream.
