    Jumping into this topic way late and completely off the current topic, I have to ask.

    Does anyone else just give up shaving their neck with a razor? I have tried for years, but anytime I do I get ridiculous red bumps from like ingrown hair which turn into lovely bumps that look like zits.

    My face is fine, I shave against the grain to get a super smooth feeling every time and it's never a problem. With my neck I have to use a god damn electric razor because it doesn't cut the hair as close and doesn't give me those huge red bumps. Pretty awesome too since right after I shave my neck it still feels all sharp and nasty.

    Anyone know how to cure this annoying dilemma other than not having such sensitive skin?

    I have the same problem. I switched to a wet/dry electric razor (the Norelco one with the spooge shooter) and have a lot better luck with my neck. The trick is not to let it get too long and not to go back and forth too much or too fast. If it gets too long I trim it down with a beard trimmer (no guard) first and then I use my Norelco in the shower. Also, even though you are using electric an aftershave lotion of some sort will still help with irritation.

    If you are using a dry electric I recommend this for a closer shave:

    22151_FULL.jpg

    It makes the hair stand on end so it cuts closer and easier.


    Hmm. I'm going to try this.

    Hell, is Latina a term even used for Hispanics outside of the US?


    Yes.

    That is why I brought it up.

    Oh well then. It is the term that is preferred by most Hispanics that I know. It is not a generalization since I specified San Antonio, and the term Latina instead of Hispanic tends to include a reference to the subculture as well.

    The word you are looking for is "chola".


    "Latina" doesn't refer to a subculture because it is not a subculture. It is the word that people who speak spanish use to identify themselves.

    Thats the funny thing about words. It tends to hold different meaning for different people and locations.

    Chola in San Antonio, particularly among the people I know refers to the counterpart to a Cholo. Gang members and shit.

    Latina refers to a Hispanic female that holds tightly to her heritage (not necessarily language, except for common statements, terms, and expletives). In San Antono, part of that identity is the heavy makeup.
    Most Hispanics I know remember their heritage, but don't try to identify with it by dress, makeup, or fashion.
    Besides, you go to a department store at North Star Mall on the North side and go to one on the southside, you will see a world of difference in men/women's fashion and in women's makeup.

    I seriously doubt some of these civilian-casualty numbers as well.

    And so the US had several hundred thousand protestors? OK. I don't give a crap about the foreign protestors; it's not their government, it's ours.
    Foreigners may have nothing to do with what your government does in the US, but if they American government decides to invade another country, which will influence the countries those people live in (immigrants that fled from Iraq, tension between muslims and non-muslims), they have every right to disagree with it and to protest. And if the U.S. government would have listened to the U.N. countries, things probably wouldn't have worked out like they did.

    Oh come on. Who listens to the UN ever?

    I get that. I just use Aloe and Vitamin E immediately afterwards, and shave slowly and carefully, and it hasn't happened since.

    I shave my balls. Because I'm a considerate person. Ladies don't need to floss during sexual relations. Gotta have aloe aftershave gel though before you try that. Razor burn != good.

    If you're of even semi-normal girth, then the average girl is very unlikely to make it all the way down to your pubes. She'll just hang around in the top 4-5 inches. Deep-throating, while awesome, is tough for chicks to do, and is not the norm.

    Of course, if your peen is super small, then it wouldn't be much of a feat to get it all in her mouth down to the pubic region.

    EDIT: Or, I suppose, your peen is normal but your pubic hair mane is the size of a lions. In which case... gross.

    Ahem... some girls do lick, or massage with their lips/tongue the entire length as well as the balls themselves. I wish to add, that this is awesome. So much so that just thinking about it makes me glad that I'm sitting down.

    Y'know, or you have a girl that uses tongue.
    I shave the shaft too, y'know, the extra inches of visual length.
    Plus it feels sexy, y'know. Smooth.

    So don't imply that I have a small peen please. I don't think you have a need to try and get into a masculinity contest with me. There are more than enough fine ladeez for the two of us.

    So a woman walks into a forum and says "forumers, it irritates me when I wear underwear"
    And the forumers say "Well then stop wearing underwear."
