Shaving the buttocks for men is one more treatment. Here are my tips for shaving your buttocks in this article.


It is a fact, more and more men are chasing body hair. Today, the image of a hairless man is becoming the norm. It has become normal to see a man without hair, completely beardless. Moreover, men do not hesitate to show that they shave their bodies, like the famous legs of cyclists, that is to say completely shaved legs. And even with the trend of arm tattoos, some men shave their arms entirely to make their tattoo more visible. But the buttocks are also affected by shaving, just like the private parts of men. Thus, some men no longer hesitate to shave their pubis .

Here are my tips for shaving your buttocks properly.

Why shave your buttocks?

There are different reasons why men decide to shave their buttocks:

  • to shave the buttocks for aesthetic reasons. This is particularly the case in men who have very hairy buttocks and for whom it is a real embarrassment. So for some men having hair on the buttocks is a sign of virility, of masculinity. But for others it will be a real embarrassment that keeps them from showing their buttocks to their partner.

  • shave the buttocks for hygienic reasons: I'm not going to draw a picture, but on hairy buttocks, mainly at the level of the inter-gluteal furrow, excrement can remain embedded in the hair. And depending on your sexual practices, especially in the case of rimming, this can be very unpleasant for the partners!

  • shave the buttocks to avoid bad odors: this will be the case with athletes who will therefore sweat a lot with physical activity. You should know that perspiration can be accompanied by bad odors.

  • if you are waxing the private parts , you will also have to shave the buttocks to maintain homogeneity.

My tips for shaving your buttocks


Are you about to shave your buttocks? Don't go too fast, here are my tips for shaving your buttocks properly.

Before shaving the buttocks, take a shower

If you have read my various articles related to shaving or hair removal for men , you have seen that I systematically recommend taking a shower before! Because hot water will soften the hair and therefore make it more flexible, easier to shave. Taking a shower before shaving your buttocks is therefore recommended if you have thick hair.

Before shaving the buttocks, trim the hair!

So of course, this advice will mainly apply to people who have very dense hair on the buttocks or who have thick hair. Trimming your buttocks before shaving will also make shaving easier and faster. This will reduce the need to repeatedly pass the razor blade over the same area of skin.


To do this, you can use a beard trimmer or a body trimmer if you have one.


Here are the mowers that I recommend, suitable for mowing body parts.

How to shave your buttocks?

Your buttocks skin is clean, your hair is as short as possible, here are my tips for shaving your buttocks.

Use a shaving product to shave your buttocks

It may come as a surprise to give the advice to use a shaving product to shave your buttocks. But it should be noted that many men, when it comes to shaving a part of the body, do not hesitate to shave their hair directly without using any shaving product. It is true that the skin of the body is thicker than the skin of the face. But she still deserves to be protected.

What's more, the shaving product will allow the razor blade to glide better on the buttocks.

Use a good razor to shave your buttocks

To shave your buttocks properly, you will need to use good shaving equipment:

  • since the visibility is not perfect, I advise you to use a razor specially adapted for sensitive skin. Indeed, as you will certainly shave blind or in a slightly bent position, you will not have an easy shave. The idea being of course to avoid shaving cuts.

  • I advise you not to use a straight razor or a safety razor , the blades of which are in direct contact with the skin, without a protective grid. Unless, of course, you are an expert in the use of these two accessories.

Don't forget the gluteal groove!

If you shave your buttocks, you will have to shave the whole area! It would indeed be strange to have hair coming out of the inter-gluteal groove when your buttocks are perfectly beardless. But be careful, to shave the inter gluteal furrow, you will have to follow a few rules:

  • find the right position! It will indeed be necessary to spread the buttocks with your fingers to pass the head of the razor.

  • apply a shaving product well because it is a very sensitive area

  • take it very slowly! Because it is a very risky area due to the presence of mucous membranes in the anus. You should not pass the razor blade on the anus, it can be very painful and an infection would be very serious.

Shaving the buttocks: what care should be taken?

Apply moisturizer after shaving the buttocks

As with any shaving session, you will need to apply moisturizer to the buttocks you have just shaved. For this, there is nothing simpler:

  • or apply a usual after-shave product.

  • or you use a moisturizing body milk.

  • or you can apply your daily moisturizer.

Moisturizing the skin of the buttocks after a shaving session will quite simply hydrate them: your buttocks skin has indeed been attacked by the blade of your razor.

Do a butt scrub

It may seem surprising but after shaving your buttocks, you will have to do a buttock scrub! The scrub will prevent the appearance of ingrown hairs on the buttocks by allowing the hair to grow properly.

So, you will need to do a butt scrub 3 to 4 days after you shave your butt hair. You can use any exfoliating product, either for the face or for the body.
