Click on "where to shave."

Some of the tips and comments are quite entertaining.

Looks like the shaver division has run out of traditional markets. Time to manufacture a problem!

I've been using the bodyshave for a couple of months. It's not the miracle hair remover that it claims to be, but it is pretty good.

I keep reloading the page, those kiwis are funny! I am going to have to try this though, I'm getting tired of having my balls erupt...into..flames...of..nevermind. I'll stop now.

Men! Why do you allow the fashion industry to profit from your emasculation? The time has come to be manly once again! Let your beards grow long and shaggy! Let your arms, legs, backs and chests be covered in the rich, luxurious fur that nature intended! Fear not the cold winds of winter, for you are protected and warm inside your thick pelt! Stand firm against those who would strip you of your masculinity, and reclaim your hairy birthright!

Hmm, no mention of whether it's suitable for buttocks. I'll just have to wait for version 2.0, I suppose.

londonmark, have you tried it on your kiwis?

I recommend Pepsi Blue brand shave gel (TM) for the tingly sensation that only a freshly shorn scrotum soaked in carbonated water can give.

I gave up when I saw a pair of large, hostile scissors trying to attack what I'm pretty sure were free-range testicles. Cringe.

I like watching the kiwis run away from scissors, shavers and tape (!?) when you click on the "experiences" link.

Using a safety razor on one's cajones is scary enough without adding flailing, scissor-like pieces of metal! Those things can pinch! And draw blood! And stuff!

Slightly more Pepsi-free.

Free range testicles. Classic. I need a new keyboard. Mine's soaked in coffee.

its not tape, I assume it's a wax strip...

Wax strips are for girls. Real men use duct tape.

I burn the hair off my free range Kiwi's with a lighter.

Wussies, I tear mine out with my own teeth.

Pinched a bit there, eh?

I've heard tell that quonsar uses a weed whacker and a spastic chihuahua.

Is it just me, or is the site trying a bit too hard to contrast the homoerotic photography with the "hey man, I'm straight, the chicks dig it" text?

If I was that flexible, I don't think I'd be grooming my kiwis.

I must however give them credit for an [b]almost[/b] tasteful visual metaphor.

The only grooming this kiwi is doing is combing my back.

They claim you gain an optical inch by shaving down there? Good God !

I am really dismayed in Metafilter. This many posts and no one has quoted Austin Powers YET!

Dr. Evil: At the age of fourteen a Zoroastrian named Vilma ritualistically shaved my testicles. There really is nothing like a shorn scrotum... it's breathtaking- I highly suggest you try it.

Dov3 -- I wouldn't recommend it. It's pretty itchy and the stubble chaffs like sandpaper...
posted by londonmark at 1:33 PM on November 3, 2005


No one but the most dedicated freak has ever shaved his testicles. The word you bastards are looking for is scrotum.

I say bastards, because... Look, just stop calling your scrote your Kiwis, okay? Thanks.

Ahhhhh where's the US voltage version?! 'Cause I really want to shave my Kiwis. I'll put up pics.

perhaps there should be a "product" tag that Pepsi-blue-haters can just ignore..?

OK, folks, take a tip from someone Down Under (back me up here, joe's_spleen):
Kiwi = New Zealander
kiwi = flightless bird, symbol of NZ
kiwifruit = Chinese gooseberry = testicular stand-in
That is all.

I already made mention of my back. But yes, that is indeed correct. Unfortunately, popular usage in the rest of the world is heedless of our fine-grained distinctions, even if we did coin the name for the fruit.
