:lol:

That was some good information Cap passed along.  I used to mentor in the Big Brothers/Big Sisters program and you would be surprised the things middle/high school-aged boys go through with their bodies but are too embarrassed to tell their parents.  They used to tell my friends and I all types of things.  Men need to have these conversations with young men more.

You're right DRUMMA1, over the past 25 years many males have not been getting circumcised. They have this thing that they don't know how to keep up. Their fathers can't tell them because:  1) there is no dad in the home or 2) dad is circumcised.

Many mothers don't know much about a penis other than what they use it for.

Very true.

If any of you other fellas have helpful advice, feel free to pass it on because I don't know everything.

True.  What about guys who develop razor bumps?  What should they do?

1st thing is to do like Capler said and DO NOT use a razor but rather, use clippers. When facial hair is cut with a razor, black men's hair that is, the stubble can tend to grow out, curl and "grow" back inward...thus causing the bump.

According to the Mayo Clinic, black men are the group most likely to get razor bumps because they have curly hair. Razor bumps occur in two ways. The first way is that as the hair grows out of the follicle, it may curve back toward the skin and enter the skin. The second way is that as the hair grows in the follicle, it may begin to curve and grow through the wall of the follicle.


2...if you prefer a razor be sure that your face is clean before shaving. A hot, wet  towel on the face will open the pores so that it can be properly cleaned.

Close Shaving
The closer the hair is cut to the skin, the more likely a black man is to get razor bumps. Applying pressure that presses the razor into the skin is likely to lead to ingrown hairs. This is true whether a razor or electric shaver is used. Pulling the skin taut can cause the hair to come up out of the hair follicle more than normal. Ingrown hairs are more likely if the hair is cut at or below the level of the skin when the skin is lying in its normal position

Assuming you don't have a full grown beard:

If the razor bumps aren't too severe, find a facial sponge at the drug store. Buf Puf or drugstore brand. Make sure it's the 'regular' and not gentle or extra gentle.
Wash your beard using the sponge, then shave and make sure you shave with the grain.  Razor bumps are caused by the hair breaking off back into your skin.

If you have a bad case of bumps have a barber shave you, then try the above method on your next shave.  Always use a sharp blade.

As the bumps subside, you can do away with the sponge but make sure you shave with the grain and use a sharp blade.

you can use this as well

Since we are on the subject of male issues. A kid called Dr. Drew the other night and asked how he could keep his uncircumcised penis from stinking. If this is an issue you have, I will pass along the information Drew gave. This is one of those things mama don't teach. The key is to use a good anti-bacteria soap, (Dial),  and keep under the hood  dry so bacteria will not have a chance to grow. Urine is one of bacteria's most favorite medium. When you urinate, dry it off with tissue, -shaking it is not enough. I know you guys with stinking pee pees appreciate this and don't have to thank me. I'm just a pubic servant, no need to have women running from your pee pee when you pull it out.  :no:

I'll pass that along.

Speaking of "things mama don't teach", what is the proper way to shave?  I try to use my clippers as much as possible but I'd still like to know.

Young males try to grow up too fast and rush to put a blade on their faces. Once you start it, you are stuck with it. I started off with a trimmer and never put a blade on my face. i still have smooth skin without the roughness blades leave. As long as your skin remains fairly smooth, a trimmer will do the trick. Also guys who shave with a razor have to do it several times a week as well. We trimmer guys only do it about once a week.  :shrug: Perhaps a razor cuts so close that when the hair starts growing it itches and makes you want to shave it away? With a trimmer you don't cut that close, so it never gets irritated.

I thought the only Black men that use razors on their faces are Black men my grandfather's age.  I'm mid 30s, my father and all the Cats I know use clippers and / or trimmers.  That razor is a no no.

I've always used razors, mostly disposable razors. But I've also never had a problem with razor bumps.  And my facial skin is still smooth...mostly.  ;)

GOOD LUCK, BOWIE!!!

Another key is to shave with the grain of your hair, which is normally downward toward your chin.  Shaving upward will give you a closer shave but will cause you to have more in grown hairs.

This is a Great Forum for Men's Issues Fellas Keep it coming....

Ive worked with young boys and young men.  They have soooo many questions about their bodies, but often do not have an outlet to vent and discuss.  So I would always open up to these kids and allow them to speak whats on their minds.... Its amazing what young men experience....
