Recently my slave removed the hair from her pubic area. While this is a turn on, she can’t get rid of all the stubble, despite using a sharp razor or hair removers. Any suggestions?

Dear Master Q:
A shaved pubic region is not the exclusive domain of submissives. Many Dominants prefer to be hairless, including yours truly. I find smooth, shaved pubes on boys and girls a huge turn-on, but stubble and ingrown hairs can be a problem. Fortunately there are a number of options for hair removal.


This is the fastest and most popular method. The razor cuts the hair above the skin, so the hair is eliminated for only a short time. Regrowth will be determined by your individual hair growth pattern. Contrary to the old wives tale, shaving does not make hair grow back more thickly. Here are some tips on shaving:
• Trim long pubic hairs with clippers or scissors.
• Take a long, warm bath.
• Rinse the area with cool water.
• Apply shaving cream a few minutes before shaving to soften hairs. Try a shaving cream with additional conditioners or aloe.
• Use a sharp blade.
• First shave in the direction of hair growth to remove most of the hair, then reapply shaving cream and shave against the direction of growth to get the area smooth and stubble free. You may even want to change blades or use a fresh razor for the second pass. To reduce irritation, minimize the number strokes with the razor.
• Thoroughly clean the shaved area afterwards with soap and water to reduce the risk of infection. Ideally, give the area a second cleansing using cotton balls and rubbing alcohol.
• A daily application of baby powder or talcum powder may be helpful after shaving to keep the area dry and irritation-free.
• Practice clean hygiene after shaving, washing the area at least once a day to reduce sweat and oil build-up.
• Go as long as possible between shavings to reduce skin irritation.
• Some people are allergic to some shaving creams, and this area seems to have heightened sensitivity. If you have a reaction, try a hypoallergenic shaving cream or another depilation technique.


These are creams containing powerful alkaline agents (usually based on thioglycolate) that break down the structure of the hair. A thick layer is applied for 15-30 minutes, then the cream is wiped off with the hair. Many people react to the harsh chemicals, especially in the hypersensitive pubic area. If you want to try this technique, be sure to test a small patch of your skin before treating the entire region.


Waxing is the hair removal technique I prefer because it’s relatively inexpensive and leaves the skin smooth and stubble-free for 3 to 4 weeks. It also reduces the likelihood of ingrown hairs. Warm liquefied wax is applied to the area, a cloth is laid on the wax until it cools and hardens, then the cloth is ripped off, removing the hair with it. It’s really not as painful as it sounds, much to the disappointment of masochists.
Waxing should not be done on people with diabetes or with varicose veins, moles or warts at the area of hair removal. Never use it on nipples or on skin that’s broken or inflamed. Your hair must be at least 1/8″ long before waxing, so the best results are obtained by letting your hair grow for about 3 weeks between treatments.
Like depilatory creams, waxing kits are readily available for home use, but I prefer to have it done in a salon by a professional. They usually have access to better quality materials and have the experience gained from performing the procedure every day. Besides, I like to be pampered. I can get my manicure, pedicure and waxing during the same visit.
My friend Judi does most of the kinky people in Houston and has all the latest gossip. I used to have her address and phone number here until some scum-bags used the info to harass and embarrass Judi at work. Those of you who could have benefited from Judi’s services have this group of jerks to thank that the info is no longer available here.


Like waxing, tweezing removes hair by pulling it out at the root. Obviously, doing this one hair at a time with a pair of tweezers is impractical. I tried a barbaric little device called an Epilady a few years ago. It had a curved, tightly coiled spring that vibrated at high speed. As you drew it across the area, hairs became trapped in the crevices of the spring and the vibration ripped them out. In practice, it cut as many hairs as it pulled, and more importantly, it was so painful that I doubt even a serious masochist would be able to endure the Epilady on a regular basis. It was such a rip-off (pun intended) that I believe it was removed from the market.
A reader wrote in to tell me about their success using a new tweezing tool, the Braun Silk-Epil. The reader said, “It’s a bit painful the first time but gets to be less so with repeated use. The pain is not beyond the realm of enjoyability, and it keeps one clean for 3-4 weeks, depending on hair type.” I’ve included a link to the product description so you can read for yourself. I remain a bit skeptical, but that may be due to my negative experience with that damn Epilady.


Until recently, electrolysis was the only reliable method for more-or-less permanent hair removal. An electrologist inserts a sterile needle or probe into the hair follicle, then sends an electric current through the probe, causing a reaction which will prevent the papilla from producing another hair.
Good news, pain sluts! There’s no such thing as painless electrology. It is impossible to destroy hair growth tissue without sensation because each hair follicle is surrounded by its own network of nerve endings. Electrolysis treatments should only be administered by a competent electrologist using modern equipment and techniques. Unskilled treatment may cause scarring.
Since only a small area is treated every few weeks, completely eliminating all pubic hair by electrolysis may take several months of treatment and considerable expense. Deep, coarse hairs can’t always be eliminated with one treatment, and new hairs as well as those emerging from a dormant phase will require additional electrolysis. The number of treatments necessary varies with each patient. Factors such as hair growth cycles, the quantity and structure of hair, previous use of temporary hair removal methods, heredity, hormone function, normal physiologic changes, certain medications and stress influence the treatment program for each individual.


The newest method of permanent depilation is the laser. The laser generates a short flash of very intense light that penetrates the skin and causes development of heat that destroys the hair follicles. The laser light penetrates deep enough to be absorbed exclusively by the pigment. The follicles of growing hair contain large amounts of pigment in most people with Northern European or Mediterranean skin types. However, in black or dark Indian skin types, the amount of pigment in superficial skin layers may block the penetration of the laser light to the hair follicles. For this reason, suntanning should be avoided prior to treatment since it may reduce the effect.
Unlike electrolysis, vast areas can be treated in 1 to 4 sessions, depending on how course the hair growth is and the level of skin and hair pigmentation. In most cases, there is some regrowth with finer and lighter hair which may require touchup treatments about once every 6-12 months.
Again, this is a job for a professional. The laser produces a sensation like the light snap of a rubber band. Most people find it tolerable, but a topical anesthetic cream can be used by sissies who find the treatment uncomfortable. The lasers with higher power and longer contact time appear to offer the best results and are the most likely to yield permanent hair removal. I haven’t looked into the cost yet, but the laser technique seems to hold the most promise for permanently removing pubic hair.


Folliculitis is an unfortunate risk of plucking, shaving, and waxing. The treated hair follicles become inflamed, and painful pustules may develop. This condition may take weeks to settle, and hair removal should be stopped, at least temporarily.
