Girls, how do you shave down there?

I've shaved before but I always manage to miss a spot. I'm going to shave just to surprise my boyfriend (we both agree that shaving is too much of a hassle, so I normally just trim it short) and I don't want it to look like sh*t (like with a bunch of red bumps and stray hairs).

So what are your "strategies" for shaving down there? Any tips? (And don't tell me to wax, NOT going to happen).

  • I try not to shave against the grain. Short gentle strokes until the hair is mostly gone. I wait until the hair gets long enough so that when I shave there is less irritation. I have noticed that if I try to shave down there again the next day, I get more red bumps and irritation.
