Dear Em & Lo,
I came across your site as I am trying to prepare for my wedding night and my first time with my wife.
I know nowadays it’s normal for women to shave/wax around the vagina to look clean, and typically guys don’t shave around the penis or scrotum.
My question is, do women like it if a guy removes the pubic hair from around the testicles and the shaft of the penis? Do you like when a man is clean shaven down there? I hear it makes it smoother for sex and more enjoyable, plus I’m sure it feels better for you to touch and handle. What’s your opinion?

First of all, kudos to you for wanting to prepare for your wedding night, and for wanting to make the entire experience as pleasurable as possible for your wife-to-be. We are thrilled to hear that our site can be a helpful resource not only for swinging singles enjoying booty calls in the city, but also for couples who are saving themselves for marriage. Hold on a sec while we just pat ourselves on the back.
Okay, we’re back. Despite that little ego trip we went on, we should say that our opinion on pubic hair shouldn’t really be an issue here. Pubic hair is a very personal matter — where one woman likes a grisly bear in bed, another prefers Kojak.
That said, your fiancee may not even have an opinion on the matter yet, assuming that this will be her first time, too. So our advice is to do very little (i.e. a barely noticeable trim) or even nothing for your wedding night. You’ve got the rest of your marriage to experiment together, to find out each other’s preferences, and to shave or not shave for each other. Start simple, start natural, and work from there.
We’re guessing that on your first night together, you’ll barely notice each other’s pubic hair — you’ll have one or two other things on your mind! Spend some time exploring this site if you want some other tips — the articles linked below are a good place to start.
Have fun storming the castle!
Em & Lo
