FROM the funny to the explicit, when it comes to the male genitalia there are dozens of different ways to refer to it. And despite what the name might lead you to believe, it's not got much to do with tropical fruit - or actual penises for that matter. The term is used to describe the regrowth that happens a few weeks after blokes shave their pubic region. If you shave the area around your manhood and then leave it for a few weeks, the hairs can end up resembling a pineapple, apparently. But it's not just pineapple penis you need to worry about when it comes to going hair-free down there. Doctors have warned that removing pubic hair can lead to cuts or nicks - and increase the risk of an STI.
So follow these tips on how to do it right, and you should come out the other side with nick-free, ultra smooth balls. But first things first:. With too much hair you're at risk for some stinkiness. The same can be said of the balls.
The thought of bringing a sharp razor anywhere close to your genitals might be downright frightening. Always start by carefully trimming the area with electric grooming clippers. Then, soak in a warm tub for a few minutes, apply shaving cream, use a sharp razor, and remove the hair with smooth, even strokes. Before you shave your pubic hair, trim it using the lowest setting on your grooming clippers, which will make it easier to shave later. Then, soak in warm water for 5 minutes to soften your hair and skin, which will help the blade cut your hair.
