    Waxing does NOT hurt as much as people say it does. When you do it by yourself at home though, that's a different story. The people that do it for a living seem to have a way to make it less painful when they're ripping at you. I went in there expecting to feel some extreme pain. I came out surprised that there wasn't much. She rubbed peroxide and some cream on me when she was done. There was some irritation, almost like a breakout, on the spots that were more dense with hair for about two days after I had it done. That's all gone now, though. I hear that the first time is always the worst, too. So I guess it's going to be even less painful from here on.

    Well, see, she already does so I can't really have her do that now, can I [​IMG] ? I don't know if its just me or what but I've never been with a girl that didn't completely do that, and I'm a bit tired of that, so I'm trying to get her to stop for a while (just for a change-up) but its not going so hot.

    You're telling me. Too bad this forum is available for public viewing and not to just registered users. I think it'll all be copasetic though.

    One thing I would recommend is the Schick Intuition razor. That is what I have used to shave my chest for the past few months. Yes, it is the chick razor, but it allows you to shave without having to put on shaving cream since it is built into this stick around the razor, so all you do is wet it and go. You have probably seen the commercials. Try it, you will be amazed at how close of a shave you get.

    Shave my chest about once every 2 weeks, and sometimes the trail as well--depending on my moods. I'm still young (20), and in pretty good shape so I do think it looks good.
    On the other hand, men's magazines put down chest-shaving all the time, so maybe I'm bizarre.
    As someone mentioned earlier, the irritation only happens if you've never shaved, or haven't in a while.

    Man, you can find anything on here. I was witching my two year old take a bath last night, got bored, and started shaving my chest. I have a pretty hairy chest. I shaved one boob. I have been working out for years, and have been incredibly frustrated about how little definition my chest has. After shaving, I have pecs! I couldn't believe it. It is truly amazing. Now, whether it is a good thing or not, or whether I will shave any more of my chest or gut (what might lie there, I wonder!), I cannot say.

    I am hairy as all get out, shoulders, chest and a little on the back. I use the Norelco body groomer and it works perfectly. I HIGHLY recommend it.

    Link? I'm tried of waxing (expensive, the hair growing back is annoying because it causes a bit of irritation when coming out of the skin etc.). Is the finish very clean or can you still see little hairs?

    I've been tattooed over my spine and ribs, pierced my own nose and ears, broken countless fingers etc, and let me tell you that getting my chest waxed was hands down the most painful experience I've ever had to go through. I've had my back waxed dozens of times and that feels like a blowjob compared to getting my chest waxed. I will never EVER do that again.

    You must have fine hairs on your chest. I'm hairy all over, and it's thick. I have like 3 hairs growing out of a single pore (or whatever they're called). It's fucked.

    You guys are making a big deal out of nothing. Shaving your chest is just plain fucking stupid.

    I am pretty damn hairy. Use mangroomer on the back and shoulders/upper arms. The rest gets trimmed down to about #2 every few weeks with the clippers. DONE.

    The only chick that would ever want a shaved chest is an immature little girl.

    I don't shave mine but I do trim it to a 3/4" - 1" length to keep it neat and so I can dry off faster. My wife LOVES a hairy chest.
