Humorous foliage references aren't just for women's razor commercials anymore. Gillette has launched a series of videos on "manscaping," with a voiceover that talks out the steps an eyeless, cartoon man acts out: shaving his back, chest, armpits, and "groin." (The mixed metaphors run rampant in the latter-check it out below.) They're silly, but the how-to's offer sound advice to body-shaving novices. In the downstairs hair video, men are directed to use "short, light strokes" (ha!) and follow up with a moisturizer.
Back in December, Diddy told Allure he's been waxed before and regularly shaves and grooms his "private areas," saying that if men expect women to do it, fellas "should return the favor." If you know a New York City man looking to do just that, tell him that Completely Bare's downtown training school (downtown-ha!) is offering $20 Brazilian waxes, $10 each if they bring a friend. Now, that would be some serious bro-bonding.
