I shaved mine a few times before but it was just itch like crazy.  I then recently decided to try waxing and let me tell you I will NEVER shave again.  Yes the procedure for waxing is painful but at least you only have to do it every few weeks..where as shaving it's like every other day.  I would def recommend waxing over shaving any day.

Oh, jeez, don't shave.  Why bother?  Guys like vaginas any way they can get them, with hair or without.

If you can't stand the pain of waxing (or the bruises, I always bruise for some reason) try a hair removal cream once your red spots have cleared up a bit, don't do it until that happens though. I've done that for years with no problems but don't do it on sore or inflammed skin.
