Gillette Embrace best razor for shaving you head if you have arthritic hands


Best for your nut

The cost is disgraceful, it’s much more expensive to buy women’s razors than men’s. I discovered the other day that the razor my wive yses for her legs and bits, is so much nicer to hold when your shaving your head.

It’s got a large flat handle, which means that for old arthritic fingers like mine, it makes it easier to hold.

it’s annoying though that women have to pay more for essentially the same thing. The blade cartridge is much more expensive than the equivalent men’s blade cartridge. It’s annoying, frankly I think blokes should absorb the cost of waxing and shaving for women, frankly I think if you ask any woman the reasons and causes if shaving their pits, bits and legs it’s because they’ve been convinced to by men. You know the reasons in order of importance sex and everything else, women feel pressured by peers and men.

Don’t get me wrong, I find my wife’s lack of body hair sexy (but then just for variety I fantasise about her full bush). But the cost of it. I once had a chat with a woman who recond disposable cartridges should be disposed of every time. If I was to shave every day or even twice a day, that would be bloody expensive.

A blade cartridge can easily last 3 months before it blunts to the point of scrape. In some respects I feel sad for young women who are convinced by the style & beauty industry to part with more cash than they should.


Blunt razors that’s the cause.

You know there is an increase in genital injuries due to pube removal in ER’s and A&E’s, well I reckon its down to blunt razors and lack of lubricant.

Today I was giving my nut sack a shave, now scrotums are not the easiest thing to shave, the skin has no tension and is really bloody elastic. So you end up pulling out yards and yards of skin just to get a flatish surface to zip the hair off.

Except, it’s made a lot harder by a blunt razor and as I was trying to be quick about things I didn’t soap up. Soap doesn’t soften hair as many think, it acts as a lubricant to help the razor slide over the skin, its hot water that makes the hair stretchier and thus feel softer when you shaving.

So there I was scrubbing away with a razor on my ball sack not shifting anything at all.

Its a bit bloody annoying as my pubis and balls look a right mess.

Oooo you’re head’s all talcy… The lost art of talcum powder in grooming

I use talc a lot, after a bath or shower and particularly when I’m having a shave. My shaving routine is a bit lazy, I tend to leave it three to five days between shaves. Really it should be twice a day, early morning and early evening.

As I leave it a few days I dust my face and head with talc before using an electric razor to shorten the stubble, it helps with giving a smooth surface, drying and de-greasing the skin helping to lift the stubble. Some would complain that the talc would get in the rotary vibrator engine and dry out the lube (blimey this sounds like wonkey sex), the stubble does that anyway, so you should clean your razor thoroughly every three months.

So once the stubbles shortened it’s the standard hot towel wet shave across my face and head, quick dry and then another talcing. I thought to myself afterwards that you don’t see much talc in shops.

Its been linked to ovarian cancer, 20 – 30% of ovarian cancer cases the women have regularly dusted themselves with talc. Now, because talc may contain asbestos from the mineral grinding process, people have scared off talc. Not wishing to be sexist here, the likelihood that I’ll get ovarian cancer is quite quite small. I’m not denigrating any one who has had the cancer here, please, it’s not something to rule out as several women every year get a variation of prostate cancer.

Please do not take this as authoritative and my figures are enormously wrong given I did a two second google. So there you have it I won’t be recommending my talc and razor routine to DW when she shaves her bits.

So it’s a brozillian, I didn’t know that

So for nearly thirty years I’ve been sporting a brozillian. It’s got a name now, actually its more of racing stripe (if that’s still a common term), well more of a runway as its the same width as my shaft. If anyone’s interested it seems I pass the toilet roll test as I’m far too wide to fit (and a bit longer, for the stats lovers out there).

I must admit it’s been about ten years since I’ve been in a gym changing room and I used to get the odd look and the occasional chat-up, but the brozillian appears to be becoming more commonplace.

For my first date with DW I’d had a back wax, the beautician who was doing it offered to do the sack and crack, but I had to say no. One, I’d already sorted that out, and two while I was lying on the table her dress/gown/uniform thing kept on popping open just in front of her plain white knickers so I was feeling horny anyway and the prospect of me standing to attention just as she would have lathered my balls with hot wax just didn’t appeal.

One thing that DW finds amusing is that she shaves from the neck down, whereas I shave from the top of my head down.
