I have a bathmate but I've always had trouble keeping a good amount of suction. I've heard that shaving helps a lot. I generally don't shave, I usually just trim. Is it necessary to be clean shaven to get the proper suction? I feel like I'll get really bad razor burn if I shave it completely.

Bathmate HydroXtreme 5 user here. Shaving is a massive boon for keeping strong suction. Never tried trimming tho

Bro why don't you just shave and try? The literal worst that can happen is that it doesn't help, you get razor burn for a few days and the hair grows back quick

Thanks for the feedback guys.

@Now, the problem is that my skin is very sensitive down there. Even trimming makes me really itchy and uncomfortable. I guess I'll give it a try and see if it's tolerable. Do you use a post shave cream for that?

The reason I'm asking is because, if this isn't the issue, then I'd like to avoid shaving down there. Like, I wasn't sure if I was just not using it properly.

No idea on creams, but I know that the times I get razor bumps when shaving pubes is when I use some older, duller razor/trimmer that doesn't do clean, skin-level cuts. Sweating alot after doesn't help either obv
