One of the things I'd like to do is get rid of my pubic hair. My boyfriend hasn't seen me there yet and hasn't indicated that he has any preference one way or the other, but I kind of want to do it anyway, for myself. I think I personally will feel more comfortable looking that way. I've perused the different options, and even experimented with shaving a bit (and felt the negative effects), but I'm just really not sure what route is right for me. What, in your opinion, is the most cost-effective way that offers minimum pain, minimum maintenance, and maximum privacy? I am sort of thinking about an epilator or another electric device, but I'd like to know how that compares to traditional shaving.
Also, I feel like this is a stupid question, but how will masturbating effect sex? Is it possible that something I've inserted into myself has already broken my hymen, and, if so, will that make the experience any less painful or bloody? I'm easily squicked out and would hate to ruin the mood by puking at the sight of my own blood. I asked my boyfriend about pain, but he has never been with a virgin and doesn't have any idea what it will feel like for me.
If anyone has any answers or tips or anything you think I should know, I'd greatly appreciate it~!
