I'm a Plucker!

Everyone shaves nowadays! Or wax, or do that IPL type thing that costs a pretty penny.

Why not pluck and tweeze your way to neatness? A bonus if you lean towards OCD or happen to be a contortionist-in-training.

After trying out all three mentioned methods, this is the best hair removing technique I've found. It gives smoothness and absolute control over where you want to leave hair in, that is, if you want to leave hair in. The only hitch is he possibility of ingrown hairs. Cos after initial tweezing, those buggers grow back with the speed of weeds. And I'm talking overnight growth here. But that shouldn't be a problem for people who pluck, cos if you pluck, you'd have to like it, or you'll just, I dunno, keel over before you're even halfway done. Ingrown hairs have the unfortunate tendency to become inflamed and god forbid, infected. If you're lucky, you'll just get redness around the offended follicle, which will fade in time, hopefully. I suppose you can slather on some moisturizer or hypoallergic concoction to sooth any sore spots, but I don't and haven't noticed anything really bad happening down there. And, regularly tweezed hair gets finer, so there's a plus point.

Okay, so this was kinda random, and probably still is, but anyways, PLUCKERS UNITE!

rub pure aloe vera gel from a real aloe vera leaf on the area, not the stuff they sell in the bottles. You can buy aloe vera leaves at your grocery store or your healthfood store or buy a plant, the large variety and just rub it on your plucked area until it disappears works like a charm.

you should teach people about pain tolerance.

How do I get rid if the ingrown hair scarring?

Ok I have just started plucking my girly bits tonight!! I am not satisfied with shaving and hate the rough feeling if I rub upwards because it feels prickely. I have plucked a small 1 inch square patch in one side and smothered it in bio oil. It looks red and inflammed but no worse than any other area thats ever been plucked. I will do small test patches over the week and use the different ointments suggested above. The pain wasnt bad, not thrilling but not unbearable. Its lovely and smooth and surprisigly 10 minutes worth of plucking has removed alot of hairs there. I am wondering about the roots because some have quiet a big grey ***** looking head on the end coming out and some dont. Does that mean I didnt get the root on those ones? None of the hairs snapped but just funny that some are different. I do have ocd and cant walk past a flower on wallpaper without touching it. I like to be organised and would love my girly bits to be tidy. Not giving up on this and I will keep trying. I also found this by googling pluck my pubic hairs lol.

I don't pluck the entire thing, just about 3 inches of the hair. I keep a pair of tweezers at work and when ever I go to the bathroom I just pluck a few for about 5 minutes. It really helps to maintain

I find plucking a pleasurable, relaxing activity, like a cat does grooming. Over time, I have pulled out most of the roots without trying, so it is easy to maintain now.

And also always use Tendskin or Gigi make something called No Bump. Awesome stuff, I haven't had one ingrown yet.

I just plucked my mons pubis after waxing there was some left over. For those that think it's painful, always tweeze in the direction that the hair is growing and pull the skin taut. It's really not that painful. Now armpit hair, waxing is for me. And those little nose hairs, ouch!! I can't stand being hairy especially since I'm female.

Does it hurt? ouch

Ive been plucking for a few months now. I only do the top part, i shave the hair on the vaginal lips. Now for the first week or two everything was fune but then ingriwn hairs started growing in. When i plucked those out i started getting scars and now my vagina looks terrible. I have bumps black marks, ingriwn hairs and scars everywhere. Im embarrassed to even wear a bikini let alone have sex with someone

OMG i did the exact same thing! what should i do?! they became infected and painful but are now healing and scarring!!! i really OVERPLUCKED and am scared the hair wont grow back fully fml

omg same here.. what did you do ??

like did you just leave it alone?

Slowly getting OCD.. started plucking when I was 12, with my eyebrows. Painful at first but as I started plucking my upper lip and pubic hair and today was the first time I did my armpits, it becomes strangely enjoyable. I pull the hair and a painful/enjoyable shivering tingle spread throughout my body. When I pluck my pubic hair I don't do it all: just clean the edges a bit. I understand that pubes are normal and I'm not ashamed to be a woman(in that sense.. But my knuckle hair unibrow and armpit hair can DIEE)(;

omg im 14 and i do the same thing ive been pulling out my hairs for 9 years.. starting with my eyelashes then eyebrows then as i got older puberty kiked i and i hated it.. shaving juss made it grow back faster so i tried tweezing and it works..like with my arm pits legs private area and stuff

I pluck my pubes, my underarms, my ankles, my knees and my toes. It used to hurt like a beast, but know I kinda miss the sharp pain. I love plucking, I NEVER want to give it up!!!:)

Amazing I pluck too. I was getting tired of shaving and having the hair grow back 3/4 days later, and the embarrassing itching sensation I'd get from the hairs growing back. I guess I'm ocd but if I have a good audio book on the time just flies by. I find that if you shower with warm water before plucking, and moisturize with Avino, the hair comes out a lot easier with minimal pain and engrown hairs are not as likely to pop up. I find the most painful part to pluck are the bangs (the hair right at the apex of the vaginal lips) and also the area nearest the butt so I usually just veet that part. My boyfriend loves how smooth I am down there and that it lasts for about 3 weeks. I have also noticed that the hairs have been growing back more fine with each pluck session (I have done it about 5 times thus far) I wish i could do likewise with my armpits but i think I'm gonna have to stick with old fashioned wax strips for that. lol

wow I thought I was the only one. I actually detest the totally bare look and it distrubs me that young teenagers feel pubic hair is so aweful that it begins to affect how they look at themselves, or being non sexy. Its cultural. Look at 70's playboys, full bush was it. So for yrs i silently protested and went all natural, except for outside of bikini. But i guess i got bored this winter and tried it. I had done it briefly as a teen and wanted to see the results again. In two days I did everything i could see. The rest i left to shave. Now i keep the a small hood area. I dont like looking pre pubeceant but still has a clean look and feel. I guess I am lucky I dont get a lot of ingrows. I did some research though, did you know that priests in ancient egypt would pluck every hair in their body?

As 'anonymousbitches' said, I've been plucking and am now left with red bumps and scars. I've not plucked in a few months and have resorted to shaving, but to shave every day is such a hassle, and the itching when the hair regrows is just awful. I tend only now to shave on "special occasions" (when I've the hope of "pulling"), but what with the scars, I'm terribly embarrassed. Is it worth it? I don't know. The after-effect is brilliant, but one wrong move and it could be life-long disaster. I really hope that my scars fade as I'm only 18!

Just use some Vitamin E after using the tweezers. Vitamin E will help you heal in no time. Buy some Vit. E capsules and pinch 2-3 capsules and spread the oily content on the area. Also it doesn't heart to sterilize the tweezers before using and also to spread some medicinal alcohool on the area before plucking.

***** **** you, you have no idea what you're talking about or at least, you're stating your very lucky case as a general fact. I turned to tweezing my pubes because i got ingrowns and stuff but that's really not what bothered me, it's the scars and pimple that are the worst. I now realize that my obsessive compulsive bikini plucking gives me more pimples and they're like tiny but there's like battalion of them so my vadge doesn't feel smooth anymore. AND i have the scars so i feel embarrassed t wear bikinis because the scars are right at he bikini.
So what i wish to say is please do not lead peple to believe that plucking and tweezing is the best way to remove hair, because the side effects are horrible. And i'm gonna be having sex with my boyfriend who refuses to sleep with me if i have any hair down there and the baldness brings the pimples out in relief. Oh Joy

If your boyfriend refuses to sleep with you if there is any hair at all down there, I think you have bigger problems to deal with.

My wife spent at least 500 bucks on laser treatment {just the armpit}. So I was like, why don't you pluck? I tried to prove my point so three years ago, I started plucking. I love the clean look. It cost you nothing except for a little pain.

Today i plucked the last hair off from my lady parts,it took a couple of days to do it all. I got a stiff neck and sore fingers from all the tweezing but it was so worth it. For the more painful bits i dabbed on a bit of numbing cream and voila!
I tweeze my legs as waxing doesn't rip out all the hair, it wasn't as sore as i thought it would be.
I am a happy plucker and will be keeping it up as new hairs grow in, it is also the most cost effective, as all you need is tweezers and time.
Glad i found this page to read other people's experiences.

If you have just started to pluck, think twice. For some reason its like Crack to me. And, now I hate it but cannot stop. Has anyone tried the NONO?

I cant stop! started 2 years ago. My hair grows back overnight. I obsess when I can feel a hair. It takes hours aday, usually while Im watching TV. I cant seem to stop. It even looks bad now, & not all smooth. If I pull them out by the roots then how do they grow back so fast?

it's the very worst thing in the world. I've made a vow to stop plucking and shaving and only use depilatory cream. But what's annoying is that my pubic hair grows SO fridging fast!

Quick question; I just started plucking my pubic hairs a yesterday, and so far everything seems fine. The area was sore after I finished, but today it feels completely fine and very smooth. For ingrown hairs, how long does it take for it to become noticeable and uncomfortable?

Ingrown hairs feel like a pimple popping. It would take a week or two for you to notice it. It could become really uncomfortable. Sometime it would just poke out after a while. Sometime, I have to use a needle to "pry" it out.

Wow, I thought I was the only one...what a relief

I thought I was an absolute weirdo for doing this! I'm only 15 (16 next month) but I've been doing it for about 2 years haha, I'm a bit obsessed and have always been worried about myself and have always asked myself to just stop but I can't. I'm 100% a virgin and I literally do it out of boredom, so glad I did this research to see if I wasn't the only one, I feel soooo relieved I'm not on my own. Proud to be a plucker haha!

I have found that exfoliating the area daily that I have plucked helps eliminate ingrown hairs. I like the suggestion below of using NEOSPORIN. I am going to try that after I exfoliate today and will let you know how that works. Happy Plucking!!

I am a 56 yo male and started plucking about three years ago. I love the clean feeling and the pain associated with plucking has reduced considerably. I find I have become a bit obsessive but nothing that causes me concern. I sometimes wax further back as access is difficult any other way. I find few problems other than it being time consuming. I wish I could find a female to do it for me as I would enjoy doing it for her.

I tend to pluck mostly out of boredom. I'm still scared to pluck to far in, as it hurts SO much. I've noticed that since I started plucking the hair grows back finer it seems, and pretty quickly too. I've only plucked maybe 3 times besides the random hairs I missed while shaving and it's a noticeable difference in the thickness. I also don't have to put up with razor burn now trying to get that really close smooth feeling! Yay for pluckers :)

I've been plucking for several years now and although time consuming, it is worth it. I'm a 54 year old man and started doing it for my wife when we were married. She preferred to shave and spent more days during the month keeping herself bare than I did. We both enjoyed each others clean and fresh look. <br />
<br />
As mentioned in an earlier post, I find sunlight the best for doing a really good job. I have a secluded area in my back yard that serves this purpose free from prying eyes. Morning light is the best. Armed with a cup of coffee and my trusty, sanitized tweezers, I go to work down there.

Hey guys, since I'm new to plucking I'd like to know if any of you have a good way to get rid of the redness and bumps from it down there? If you know any remedies or soaps or anything of the sort would you please message me or reply? Thank you so much!

Oh my gawd!!!! I feel so much better that i know other people are plucking there you know whats... i just got out of the shower and was looking at my legs as there was still hair on them and decided to pluck them and then i thought, why not pluck down there? So i got the tweezers and went away. i love how smooth it is and I've only done about a corner of my VA.J.J. and can't wait to finish the rest. With shaving i was always itchy and saw the hair immediately grow back like in 12 hours. It was so gross especially when i had bumps and sours from it. And now I'm glad to find fellow pluckers doing more than just their faces!!!

I enjoy plucking and the smoothness afterwards. Looking to try something new....Looking for a female that is into plucking pubic hair to get together and have a "Plucking Party"......LOL. Just someone to explore and share a new experience with.

Hello, I too am a plucker. I was tired of how fast regrowth was after shaving. I used to pluck a few years ago and stopped and have recently started again and I have no idea why I ever stopped! It's the best. People are mentioning vaseline to help with bumps and ingrown hairs but I have found the best product for this, NEOSPORIN! It's amazing. It helps prevent infections in ingrown hairs because it kills bacteria and the pain reliever in it is an extra plus! I pluck and then apply the neosporin (I am very liberal with it) and the next day any little pinches or red spots are virtually gone

I love plucking. Shaving and waxing never suited me either. I know others have mentioned this but I am too shy to go to a doctor and show her the damaged (inflammation, white scars, ingrown hairs) around my pubes. I have tried Bio Oil and it only helps with the dry skin. It's painful sometimes but more shameful. Thanks.

I thought I was weird or something cos I really enjoy plucking my girlfriend, she suggested it 1 day, & I was hooked, I like it when she plucks me to, hail pluckers !!

Hello all! I too am a plucker! ha! A lot of people are worried about ingrown hairs, etc. Here are my tips: 1. ALWAYS wash your hands and the area to be plucked BEFORE you start. yes BOTH. 2. pluck away. make sure to get down to the root before you pull. 3. after you are done, take a cotton ball, soak it with WITCH HAZEL and apply over entire area. it feels GREAT! and witch hazel has natural antiseptic. 4. after the witch hazel evaporates, apply CORTISONE 10, the cream to the area. It helps with the inflamed skin. 5. Keep applying these last 2 steps daily, and you will never see anymore of those ingrown hairs! :)

So I've been plucking for a while, and I've noticed a few things. One was a few ingrown hairs, but certainly nothing worse than what you'd get shaving. I also now have several patches that don't appear to be growing back, which I'm thrilled about. Everything else grows in rather quickly. Even if I pull a hair out with the root, there will be a new hair or two growing back from the same follicle within the next day. Another thing, I don't think I break off too many hairs, but even so, when I'm finished, it feels very prickly, which I find incredibly frustrating. Also, I've done my underarms, but afterwards, for the next several days, my armpits were incredibly sore. I really don't like body hair, which is why I pluck, and I would totally do laser hair removal if it were worth it and I could afford it.

What a relief knowing plucking is actually as normal as it gets. Go guys! I just love the feeling of getting them hairs out from the root! (tickles my heart so sweet) It's like a battlefield where you eliminate them stubborn strands in a seemingly endless war. (sighhh....) pluck pluckidie pluck pluck pluck (hmhmmm tickles!) i swear though one day i'll get rid of them once and for all.... tchuching laser / electrolyte whatever, wait for me....

Hi! So shaving causes extreme itching as the hair grows back. Does plucking have the same result?

Hi...<br />
I decided to pluck 'down there' as I hate shaving and waxing is too expensive. I left the bots close to the p**** but did all of the rest. This was 2 weeks ago. Now the whole of my bikini area is inflamed, red, sore and full of ingrown hair. Have others experienced this? Does this mean plucking doesn't suit me or should I stick with it and will it get better? In the mean time, how can I reduce the soreness and redness? THanks

Others have mentioned Vaseline. I don't know from personal experience whether this works.

Also, if you already have the ingrowns, it helps to put salicylic acid on them, as they are basically pimples with a hair chilling inside them. They will come to a head faster and you will then be able to remove the ingrown hairs.

I started plucking for the first time the other day but only managed the top part of my bikini line before I was interrupted by a knock at the door. I must find time today to finish the job as my bikini line is so smooth and I too get irritated skin from shaving down there. Does anyone have any tips for a first time pluck?

I love plucking but I can't only pluck just one! I just sat in the bathroom for 2 hours LOL but it looks great down there ;)

I started plucking my lower legs really young and instantly started plucking my pubic area when I hit puberty. After doing this for YEARS I have now made a discovery, the epilator. I have a small one for the pubic region and a big one for my legs. Same results, similar feeling, quarter of the time. For everyone moaning about ingrowns, exfoliate your skin every other day, moisturize every day. I never get them.

I pluck with my bare fingers and do it simply while lying on my back and feeling my whole genital area. I leave a landing ***** above my **** but everything else goes. I can't believe some of you are hunching over with mirrors and lights and tweezers! You truly can feel with your fingers every new hair that comes in. I urge you to just relax and try with fingers instead of tweezers. I like a little pain so i guess that's the other piece for me. The **** hurts the most of course but the rush is worth it to me. I love receiving oral and every man that's given me oral absolutely loves the softness of my lips and the fact that there's no nasty hairs in the way. I have also been plucking my nose hairs the same way. Why is it that as we get older (I'm now 48) the hairs in the nose increase or so it seems. What the heck is up with that? Anyway, I just wanted to add my experience here as I do know we are in a very small percentage of the total population. Pluckers unite! :)

Okay, I'm not a plucker, but I'm thinking about it. I'm a 40 year old divorced woman with a full bush, and now I'm finding out that it is totally un-cool. Years ago, I did the shaving thing, but I gave it up because it left me with such a razor rash I was embarrassed to even let my husband look. I like the idea of laser treatment, but it's too expensive for me right now. Even a Brazilian wax job is above my budget. That's why I'm thinking tweezers. I've tried it, and cleared maybe the top one inch of my bramble patch. My questions are, how long will it last? How often will I have to re-do it? Does it ever reach a point where there is no maintenance?

Suesan, I have been plucking on and off for thirty years, and regularly for the past ten. After a full plucking job it usually takes about 10-14 days before the first hairs begin to appear. Unlike with shaving, they do not come in all at once, and when they do appear they are finer and softer. With plucking you will usually pull out the roots of some hairs. These will not grow back. I found that within a few years my pubic hair had thinned out and now I am about 95% permanently hair free, which I love. It looks and feels sexy.

Did you ever have a problem with tons on ingrown hairs? Thats what happened to me from plucking. Some seem deeply ingrown. I'm flipping out and don't know what to do. :(

That used to happen to me a lot too but after a tweezing session I take a quick shower and exfoliate wherever I tweezed. If that doesn't help, I've heard using lotions or cleansers with salicylic acid can help heal and prevent ingrown hairs.

I've been plucking for a few months and have developed many ingrown hairs. Some of the hairs under red bumps and some I can see growing under the skin. I don't know what to do to get rid of them. i just want to let the hairs grow back so I don't have any more aggravation. What should I do to help the hair grow back and avoid in grown hairs?

You should get yourself a pumice stone at your local drug store. Rub it over your pubic area every few days. It will get rid of the dead skin and drastically reduce the number of ingrown hairs. The results of plucking are too wonderful to give it up! So stick with it, and get yourself a pumice stone!

Im 27 yr old female and just plucked my entire pubic region for the first time in my life. It took about 5 hours on and off. The ones closer to your vaginal crack (lol) were so painful. Although its my first time I quickly realized u must tweeze one hair at a time, very close to the root, and make sure u squeeze tightly before u pluck. Pluck FAST. Im glad i did it and i actually look forward to plucking the first hairs that regrow. Proud to be a Plucker :-) :-P

Congratulations, Sophia! Welcome to the growing community of pubic pluckers. I am sure you will love your silky smooth genitals as much as I do mine. You will find that the hairs grow in finer and softer, and not all at once, so that maintenance is not as time consuming as the first plucking job.

Wow. This is amazing. I've always thought I was the only one with this crazy obsession. I'm 20 and I've been doing this since I was 13. My dad wrote dr.phil about me when I was younger, I remember sitting on the couch plucking away listening to my family rant on how strange this was. It feels good not to be alone. I really wish I could stop though. I've been dating someone for 2 yrs now and they just found out about my strange addiction and I've been trying to stop. It's frustrating the satisfaction I get from doing it. I'm thinking about looking into LASIK hair removal. But I heard you can't plunk for a couple weeks before the treatment. I don't think I could go that long without doing it right now.

Nothing crazy about your obsession! Waxing and shaving are now 'in.' 60% of women between 18 &amp; 24 are now waxed or shaved, and more and more guys are doing it. I've started a group on Yahoo, "Public Pluckers and Waxers" as a forum for the growing smooth community. You should join it and meet others like yourself!

I am obsessed and I wish I could stop! I loved the results at first but now I spend a lot of time stressing over it. I get a lot of red bumps and I am very picky about how things look "down there" I wish I could stop and let things heal but it is too rewarding to remove the hairs. I wish it looked as rewarding as it felt! I will often go lay in a tanning bed when the red bumps are bad just to make a redness less noticeable. I am glad to not be alone. I seriously thought I was the only person with this crazy habit!

I've been doing it for years!!!!!

Glad to see so many pubic pluckers here! I've been doing it since my 30s, over 30 years, and love it. Over time most of the roots have come out, so that I am now over 90% permanently smooth down there and love it. I started using an epilator on my chest about six years ago and am now permaently smooth there. Smooth skin is more erotic, more responsive to touch. I use a combination of tweezers and a Braun Silk-epil epilator.

I, too, Googled 'plucking pubic hair' and got this page!<br />
I am a 22 year old guy who also got sick of shaving it down there...<br />
My sister always says I have OCD but I never went to get that diagnosed!<br />
I've been plucking it down there for the past 3 days (different patches each day) and I just finished a few munites back, when I thought I was a complete weirdo! But when I found this page I knew that I wasn't the only one... There are at least 21 people in the world who are as pluckily clean as I am :)<br />
Plucking tips:<br />
1) Press it hard<br />
2) Pluck it fast<br />
3) Wash your hands

wow, I though I might be crazy, that is what everything I have seen so far said but it feels good and relaxing and looks nice, but I do loose track of time and I have so many hairs! Good to hear everyone

ahhh sometimes better than sex....that rising tension before plucking the hair, then....bliss, pleasure, gratification and relief when that hair is plucked.....but to take it one step further I climb into the shower and use a hand held shower wand, putting the switch to pulsating and a hard stream of water, with as much hot water as I can stand (almost steam like) to soothe those itching areas on my scrotum, up my phallus and down toward my anus, now that is absolutely spine tingling....

I've been plucking for almost 20 years. I too enjoy it but I have never met anyone else that plucks! So I'm glad I searched it online and found my fellow pluckers. We are a select few, but we stand united! Pluck away! :)

How to avoid Red bumps & ingrown hairs after plucking or shaving:<br />
<br />
Its easy really... USE VASELINE... or Paw Paw ointment... <br />
<br />
at least once or twice a day to help the hair follicle grow out easily and it stops the skin growing over or getting inflamed <br />
<br />
Thats a tip from my old waxer who I no longer bother with as I just pluck as I see them now... and shave occasionally when I need to.. but plucking alone keeps it super smooth... and doesnt take long at all if you get the newbies out every couple of days or so..

Hiya I been plucking my pubic hair for ages started wen I was bout 15 I think And Im 19 now use to hate shaving my pubes use to have to repeat it all the time I much rather pluck it lasts much longer Than anything elles ive tried. And Once I start I don't stop until Its gone my method is to trim the them dwn so they are jst about 10 mm in length and them pluck them coz it makes life easier I find and also wen they start to grow bk over time the new hair is very fine and I find it easier to rip them out and u dnt suffer with as much pain or discomfort with that type of new hair like. Hate it aswel wen you do not pull the root out coz after a day or 2 they grow bk through so I always rep luck the ones that snapped and for trapped hairs I always use a pin to get them out and tweezers always sterilise everything tho before you do it my gf has just started plucking after seeing the benefits of how smooth and how long it lasts compared to shaving but she's an amature she can't handle the pain like us veteran pluckers :D also does anyone elles some times just go wild and go on a plucking frenze and remove a masive patch with in a few seconds lol I find the quicker you pluck them the less pain in sum areas like peace out fellow pluckers :)

I thought I was alone in this plucking world :) glad to see that im not.. I am a 21y.o female, and I have been diagnosed with ocd. over the past year or two I have become more and more obsessed with plucking down low.. It started when i got absolutely SICK of shaving and ending up with nothing but razor burn and ingrown hairs.. UGH! I have never felt so confident about my nether-region.. I have areas where the hair does not grow back anymore, and im hoping that will be the case with most of my area.. specifically the top/mons pubis.. I have never tried waxing before, or nair/veet.. I dont think those would have a very lasting effect.. <br />

Hey, I'm a newbie plucker :P . I hated the itchy red bumps of shaving, creams weren't that effective and after trying my epilator out down there with not much luck I grabbed my tweezers and started to pluck. I find it doesn't hurt at all after a hot bath and the smoothness is what I've always hoped for! One weird thing I've noticed though is that I have several hairs growing from each hair follicle, maybe this was why shaving and hair removal creams weren't that effective and left with me with those nasty itchy red bumps (so unattractive and very uncomfortable) and also maybe why I could never get rid of the hairs completely, even straight after shaving etc etc they would reappear within a day.. who knows? Anyone else ever heard of this or am I just a bit odd?<br />
Plucking can be time consuming, but so much fun! I guess I've always had slight OCD and this satisfies it completely, it's such a great feeling to pull each hair out individually, and on top of that get great smooth results :D <br />
Like I said, I'm a newbie to this way of hair removal (although years ago I used to pluck my legs if I had nothing better to do) so can't comment on how long it remains hair free down there or whether the hair grows back softer, but who cares if it grows back just as quick.....tweezers in hand I'm ready to get the little blighters as soon as they appear!!

Plucking has led to my pubic area being covered in red sores, and I have excavated the hairs from each, but the excavating itself has led to what I think may be infections (and continued excavation). I bought an epilator to see if it would help, but since I plucked for so long before I got it, it hasn't improved certain areas. I'm afraid to go to the doctor because I'm embarrassed about the damage I've done, and I think the only solution at this point may be laser hair removal which I can pretty much guarantee I won't be able to afford. WHAT SHOULD I DO??????

Just go to doctor. S/he has seen this before.No embarrassment.

I'm 53 and still pluck away down there, wife loves my smoothness!!! I do unfortunately get those odd times when the hair snaps off rather than come out and end up with the odd red sore patches..hey ho, it is worth the pleasure!!!

man, i TOO came across this page while doing a search about my fascination with plucking. its a really odd habit that not many people understand. it all started for me one summer night when i was in high school and i just started to pull out my armpit hair. then the tweezers came out and i started hair removal in the pubic region. <br />
<br />
i have since stopped any armpit plucking and opting for trimming. but the pubic trimming remains a weekly activity. im not ocd enough to where if i go on vacation that i take tweezers with me, but i do like the activity of removing hairs after a the trip. <br />
<br />
so since i thought this was all so fantastic, i am going to assume that our fondness for plucking is healthy and share some techniques. <br />
<br />
plucking in the daytime gives you great light such that you can see hairs that you may normally have missed. whereas nighttime the best method is to turn all the lights off and concentrate a flashlight near the area and even more hairs will illuminate that you may normally have missed. <br />
<br />
be clean. always sanitize the tweezers and your hands before and after plucking. i also like to use a round of anti bacterial soap in the shower shortly after plucking. <br />
<br />
know when to stop. i have lost track of time while plucking, try to set aside a specific amount of time to pluck and then give it a rest after say, 10 minutes. and of course, if at any time you experience discomfort of any kind or irritation, cease plucking immediately. <br />
<br />
this odd habit has been a part of my life for at least 10 years now. so its interesting to find anyone with the same quirk. be safe all!

Have you ever had a problem with massive amounts of ingrown hairs from plucking?

pics, my sac is hurting after 10 mins

Lke someone above I googled 'pluck pubic hair' and came across this page ha! I was sick of shaving cos it always left a rash and never felt smooth enough (i am a tad ocd hehe) I have tried waxing and it hurt like hell, so I decided that while my boyfriend is away and i have an evening to myself, i would see how plucking was. And well...Ive been sitting here for the last two hours plucking haha! The satisfaction of getting the hairs out at the root feels good. Its a bit hurty in some places but I am so far pleased with the results!

haha kinky seh!

I started with shaving down there like 2 months ago, liked the feeling of the sack being so silky. Tried depilatory cream and no more, I got reallllllyyyyyybad sack burn.... then 2 weeks later I tried wax stips, a week ago, it really reallllyyyy hurted, but after that it was OK, so last Friday I started plucking. And today I started with the sack, it hurst a little, but is nicer,..and besides feeling nicer, it looks nice to me, my wife donĀ“t mind it all all, is nice if someone else do it for you but my wife needs glasses and oh my lord the pain, of she missing a hair and pinching tnere. So I bettetr do it, he he.<br />
I had a hard time with the ones at the ba<x>se of the shaft, but have plucked yesterday and today, I am almost done now, maybe 1 more hour and it will be over to the razor, I have used in the sack for the last 2 months or so, so now I am a plucker. And I was wondering if I was weird or what, so after going to the web, I am not alone! he he.

My husband tweezes mine and really enjoys the job. However, when I returned the favor, he could not take it. He said it hurt too much. Maybe his hairs are too course, Whatever, he just continues to shave.

I've been plucking for a long time, hated shaving because it ITCHED so bad!! At first I had a few eye watering moments, but now, rarely hurts at all. Actually gives you something to do when you are bored......lol.

Okay, I am going to admit something that may be a little weird. I actually wish I could find someone that had a plucking fetish to pluck my underarm and pubic hairs. I like the feel and look, but have a hard time doing it myself.

My husband does the plucking. He enjoys the view and the job!

i cant stop

right on fellow plucker

I have been cleaning up there since 1972. I have a fetish for clean looks around my ****. I think they call it a Brazilian Look. Anyway<br />
I have noticed that it hardly grows any more<br />
Just a thin line in the middle 1/2" wide. Very thin now with little shaving needed. I have never tried plucking, but I will just for the experience. Thanks!
