Hairy holes and groins like rhododendron bushes are things of natural beauty, but there’s a lot of kinky fun to be had from a deeply personal male grooming, besides the fact that your dick looks two inches bigger if it isn’t buried in two inches of fur. There’s the thrill of being several bucks beyond buck naked. There’s using a pubic trim or shearing as a mark of ownership. It’s less permanent or painful than a brand, but more appropriate for a first date. It can make all kinds of cock, ball and ass play easier and you expose more skin to sensory stimulation. And of course the act itself is an extremely intimate exchange of power.
This month, leatherman, leader and barber, Joe Gallagher [Joe The Barber], will try to teach us things we never knew we needed to know about a deeply personal male grooming. Expect extreme nudity.
A Philadelphia native, Joe lived in New York City from 1987 to 1998. He won International Mister Leather in 1996. Joe moved to San Francisco in 1998. He became a barber in 2002 and opened Joe’s Barbershop in 2004.
