Im just as anal about my body hair as I am my face...I like to keep things well groomed. Last week at Target I picked up a phillips norelco "bodygroom" for $39.75 and it is awsome. Anything below the neck is taken care of with ease....no nicks on the boys or anything like with my whal I have always used. Im working on sleeving my arms so I like to keep them hair free...I usually shave them but always have razor bums afterwards. This tottally eliminates that and if your predominatly right or left handed it is easy to use with both.

The whal can be pretty scary around the boys. Nicks like that hurt, trust me I know. Sounds like I might have to try this norelco.

Now I guess we can say there is another area to spend on: BGAD (body groomer AD)

How close of a shave can you achieve with the Bodygroom?

Also, do you need to do a pretrim before using, ie: can it trim medium length hair, or do you need to goto short before using?

I'd like to know about how long the shave lasts. I know this is dependent on the person, but compared to other methods, how long?

Kudos to Phillips for having the cojones to make that ad- I doubt if it will be coming to a tv station near you.

On top and bottom of the foil there are clippers and with the provided gaurds you can whack it down a little and then go all out and shave. No it is not as close as a Bic black handle(what I normally use for shaving body hair) but its close enough for arms, legs, the boys...what ever.

hey does the electric look hefty enough to last a long time, how often are foils on electics replaced, is it easy, is there an advantage over a blade (what most women use, in some cases daily, i understand)

Its plenty hefty and looks pretty stylish as well.....I beleive the destructions say to change out the foil once a year. It is very easy!!! Being predominatly(spelling?) right handed I always had a hard time using my left hand to shave my right arm:001_unsur but with this it is a peice of cake. I prefer this because because a razor scares me around the boys and I was tired of razor bumps on my arms.

I have been using this for a few months now, and I would say it's best value is how safely you can trim 'the boys'. Extremely comfortable. The results are decent elsewhere, but it is definitely worth the price if just for trimming the boys. The ad is a riot too! That was actually what prompted me to buy it!

I just got one of these too. Takes several passes to get a close shave. But no irritation really. I don't recommend using it in the shower, though. Just isn't as effective.

For sure....I just wish it could come sooner.....tats are not cheap these days. I have a magazine peice thats one sitting away from finished, its the majority of my upper left arm except for the inside and when I get home on the 27th I will finish it up and pay the rest and the final cost will be $900....apparently this is a hook up as well since there is so much detail.

$900 for a full sleeve is definately a gimmee..good for you!!! my ex had one and he paid tat by tat.... then filled it in. It ran him (me) thousands by the time it was done...and it was almost all black ink.

I would really love to see the pictures too Sean!!!

By the way, you guys should see the dragon Chagadiel has on his back.... Awesome! Unbelievably awesome!!! I was lucky enough to get a picture and it is a keeper......

New member, looking through a lot of old posts.

I just had to comment, that commerical was freaking hillerous!!! I'm going to have to show it to the wife.

But, I might just pick this up. I need a new groomer for all my bodyhair and this looks pretty nice.

OMG, what an ad! I don't think I've every laughed so hard over a commercial. I may just have to try the product if I find a good price tho I've had really good results when (shaving for) bodybuilding with a disposable (gasp) gillette and either Molle' brushless or (gasp again) canned Barbasol. I agree tho, the Wahl just wasn't doing it. Also, shaving tends to be better for me in most places as my hair is thick and coarse so it shows easily and looks stubbly if just buzzed. (tho my beard (goatee) trimmer works well for other areas). What I really need is something that bloodlessly addresses tough areas like knees and back of knees.

I bought one of these at Target a while back and it works great on "the boys," as you guys say. Be careful though, there is a little clipper part on the end that'll get you if you get overconfident with it and get careless! :eek:

A few years ago I had a series of surguries and medical treatments and I lost almost all of my body hair. When I was in High School I was a really hairy guy, now nothing. It never grew back, today I have very little body hair. Now I don't recommend anyone getting very, very, very sick, but it cleared up my body hair.

Unless you're getting a vasectomy no reason to have anything that sharp down there.

The reasons, my good fellow, are ones of a nature that is unmentionable in proper company.
