I'm having a great deal of trouble getting used to the whole "shaving the cooch" thing again. After a year of mostly waxing and epilating, it's all so new and strange. And itchy. And unpleasant. And an all-around bitch.
The shaving part itself isn't all that bad. A fresh razor, some conditioner or lube for glide, and some gentle care, and it's gone. I'm re-learning not to crowd shavings too much, because it leads to a bleeding mons, and how to reduce the angry red irritation bumps afterward. And I'm having to re-learn how to deal with stubble. Not the soft, re-growth after waxing, but sharp, pokey, itchy, painful shaving-stubble.
Now I remember why I switched to ripping the buggers out by the roots in the first place! The stubble on my labia, I can stand to an extent. The pubes are softer there. But on the mons? Goodness gracious, who replaced my pubes with bevel tipped 24 gauge wires? Seriously not cool. They hurt, they itch, and they're just plain uncomfortable! A day or two after I shave, even the softest cotton undies feel like they're lined with steel wool. Going commando under a skirt has never been so tempting.
How the hell did I bear this for years? I hope I get used to this soon, or it may drive me stark raving bonkers. Bonkers, I tell you! If you see a crazy woman in a lab coat running down the street attacking people with the unholy child of a dildo and a flamethrower and a machete... tell her to go find some chocolate. And refer her to a good laser hair removal place.
