The Dirty Truth about Hair Removal for Anus

Some people reading this article will be a bit disgusted. Others are confused and are actually looking for legitimate information on hair removal for anus. This is a serious issue and there's nothing to be embarrassed about.

Problems with Anal Hair

Ok, the truth is that ass hair gets messy. Solid waste gets trapped in the strands causing soiled underwear and lingering smells. More toilet paper is needed to clean up and people who are hairier there might need additional time to cleanse thoroughly, sometimes with water and moist towelettes.

For athletes, the anal hair traps sweat which can lead to discomfort, chafing and even infection when hairs are ripped out (those bicycle seats can hurt).

Methods to Remove Hair From Down There

No matter what method or combination of methods you choose for the , be careful in the anal area. The skin around the sphincter is very soft and sensitive and can easily be torn. With the amount of fecal bacteria in the area, open skin lesions are prone to infection.

Hair removal methods that work on other parts of the body, such as waxing, should not be done around the anus.


Hair Removal Options


Waxing can be done between the cheeks, on the scrotum and perineum but keep it away from the poop-chute. Not only can the skin be damaged as the cloth & is ripped off, but the exposed root follicles can get clogged with fecal waste and become infected.

Hair Epilation

is basically multi-strand plucking or tweezing. Do you really want to yank multiple hairs out from down there? Ouch!


Of all the places not to nick or cut, this would be the one. Don't even try it.

Depilatory Creams

Since the hair is removed only at the surface area, there is less of a chance for the hair follicles to become infected. Ensure to exfoliate the skin regularly to avoid ingrown hairs but avoid harsh scrubbing for obvious reasons.

Unless you love pain, test the hair removal cream on a small area first, and for a short time (shorter than what it says on the package!). Wait a few minutes. If it starts to burn and you're struggling to bite back a scream of pain, then don't use it down there again.

Laser Hair Removal

The parameters of the need to be toned down, in order to zap only the hair follicles and not the surrounding tender tushy tissue. It is highly recommended not to have this procedure done at a beauty salon but it is less expensive than a dermatologist's office.
