"There are pros and cons to doing it yourself," thinks Perrine. "The negative being, that these are very sensitive parts and you may not be particularly good at figuring out how to manage it." He commends Gillette for having put videos online showing men how to do it.
Isn't there a third option, though? One we might call the Delilah option: Having your significant other do it?
Perrine views that as problematic. The upside, he says, is that this could certainly be an intimate experience, perhaps one that would bring the two closer together. But on the other hand, he says, "The woman in your life doesn't necessarily know how to do it, because she is equipped with a different sort of equipment." (He does not refer to the Gillette Fusion ProGlide Styler.)
