We all let ourselves go a little now and then. We eat the extra slice of pizza. We get a little ripe in between showers. We also let our hairy bodies get out of control. There are plenty of valid reasons to slack off now and then. What matters is that we pull ourselves together and get back into good habits.

With that in mind, you might be looking for instructions on how to get hair off your balls. It’s one of the ways you let yourself go. You’re not alone, but we want to provide some caution. One of the methods you’ll find online is to use Nair. We should probably talk about that.

Let’s Learn About Depilatories!

Nair is the best-known brand, but it’s only one of many depilatories. For the sake of today’s discussion, we’ll be using the two interchangeably. What you should understand is that while each brand will have its own formula and quirks, they largely work in the same way and come with the same pros, cons, risks, and benefits.

How They Work

Before you can decide if you should use Nair on your balls, you might want to know how it works. Depilatories do their job by chemically deconstructing your hair at the root. That’s not an exaggeration. These things use strong acids to dissolve the roots of your hair. They do it in minutes, so you know it’s not exactly a weak formula.

Once the root is dissolved, the remaining hair washes away. It leaves you completely smooth, and it can take a while for the hair to grow back. Since it has to regrow the whole root, you get extra time between male grooming sessions.

There are some worthwhile advantages to removing hair this way. One is that the hairs don’t grow back sharp. That’s nice, and any guy who has ever had stubble between his legs will tell you. Also, the hairs won’t poke you on the way back out. This means no razor burn.

A second large advantage is that you can’t cut yourself with Nair. If you prove to be the exception to that rule, then we should probably get you a trophy and your own entry on the Darwin awards. That’s some next-level special.

Of course, chemically burning off your hair comes with a few disadvantages too. The strong acids sound scary, and they are. While this stuff is designed to be safe, it also comes with an FDA-required warning label. To be fair, most people are unharmed when they use depilatories. The cream won’t burn your manhood away. But, whether or not you really want to walk this road might be better determined if we look at a few more details of the Nair process.

Are They Safe?

Are depilatories safe? It’s a fair question, and it doesn’t have a single, binary answer. In most cases, they’re safe enough. They are unlikely to cause any lasting harm. If that wasn’t the case, nobody would ever buy them. The issue is that safe and pleasant aren’t always the same thing.

The number one concern with Nair is a skin reaction. Every person’s reaction is different. For some people, there is no noticeable reaction at all. For people who have a reaction, it can range from mild itching to severe burns, blisters, swelling, and/or irritation.

Keep in mind that severe reactions are uncommon. Most people who have a reaction don’t need to rush off to the hospital. If you do find yourself among the reactive population, your first step is to thoroughly rinse the area with cool water. Since we’re talking about your balls, you’ll probably need to step into the shower for this.

After you flush the skin, you choose an application to take any sting away. Neosporin is great if you get any burning on the skin. Hydrocortisone is effective against most types of reactions. You can even keep it simple and opt for a cold compress.

If at any point you’re afraid that your reaction might be more than minor, go straight to the doctor. If there is severe pain, swelling, redness, blisters or anything else that scares you, don’t hesitate. Skin reactions can be dangerous, and reactions involving the testes can be extra dangerous.

Will It Hurt?

We said that strong reactions are uncommon. Let’s assume you don’t have any severe intolerance to the cream. Will it hurt when you use it? Unfortunately, that’s very difficult to say. Guys who successfully and repeatedly Nair their balls have differing testimonies. Some say that it’s 100-percent painless. Others say it’s the most horrific pain they’ve ever felt, but for some reason, they endure it.

The truth is that it will depend on your physiology, so the best move is to test it before you rub it all over your wrinkly parts. Try a test run on your inner wrist. It’s sensitive enough to let you know how you react, but it’s accessible enough that you can easily deal with it if the reaction is bad. Don’t just rub a little Nair on your wrist and assume you’re good. Follow the instructions, but only for a small test spot on the skin. Then, wait a full day after your test. That will give you plenty of time to see how your body responds. After that, you can be your own man and decide if you should Nair your balls.

Now, take all of that and think about gooch hair removal. Would you like some alternative options?

After everything you just read, some of you are going to try Nair all the same. Others among you are running for the hills. No matter your camp, you should know all of your options before you commit to a specific method of removing hair from your testicles. We have a few methods that we prefer, and a few more we want to discourage.


Shaving is probably the most common way for guys to tackle testicular hair. Even though we specialize in these tools and techniques, we don’t really recommend shaving your balls. Trading acid for a razor blade is more of a lateral move than an outright improvement, don’t you think? Razors have too many drawbacks. 

You can literally cut your balls. That’s not a fun one. Even when you don’t, razor burn and irritation run rampant. You’re likely to spend a lot of time scratching and walking funny after you shave your balls.

There’s also the issue that your balls don’t need to be perfectly smooth. That’s a very 2010s fashion choice.


Trimming is our top recommendation. You can trim the hair as close as you like. As long as you’re sporting the right electric trimmer for balls, you’ll be safe under all conditions. The risk of any bodily harm while trimming really is minimal.

For the newbies, we recommend getting tidy but not super short. If your hair is short enough, it gets prickly. You don’t want to learn about that the hard way.

Other Methods

There are less conventional ways to remove ball hair. For other parts of the body, waxing and plucking are normal. Please don’t consider those for your balls. You’ll bleed. A lot. Oh yeah, and it will hurt mercilessly.

What you can look into is laser removal, but don’t try a home kit. Lasers can cause complications with your testicles. You don’t want to accidentally Goldfinger yourself in the nuts. Instead, make an appointment with a dermatologist and let them do things the right way.

That should be enough to get you back on the wagon. Get that groin hair under control, but don’t hurt yourself over it. There’s always a good way to do a job.

Failures in Business: The Unseen Stepping Stones to Success

Equally significant is the need for businesses to remain vigilant about broader shifts in both domestic and global markets. Macro factors, whether they’re economic trends, geopolitical events, or emerging global challenges, can have profound ripple effects, impacting even the most niche industries. By staying abreast of these larger market dynamics, businesses can better anticipate risks, adapt to challenges, and capitalize on new opportunities. In an ever-globalizing world, the ability to navigate both the nuances of one’s immediate market and the broader global shifts is what separates thriving enterprises from those that falter.

TACTICAL Takeaway: Stay sharp and monitor your industry’s trends. When things shift, being ahead in understanding consumer habits offers you the flexibility to adjust and succeed. Things can change rapidly and the sooner you have insight into consumer behavior changes, the more opportunities you have to pivot.


Get Comfortable Being Uncomfortable

The sports nutrition industry is an interesting, fast-paced vertical where what’s old can quickly become new again but also what worked yesterday likely won’t work tomorrow.

It might seem counterintuitive, but it’s spot-on. Take creatine as an example. It hit the shelves in the early 1990s and quickly became a hit. Yet, a decade later, its demand had waned. Jump another decade to today, and it’s back more popular than ever.

TACTICAL Takeaway: The key for businesses is knowing when to go all-in on a product and when to ease off, as it’s the ever-changing consumer market that truly drives demand.

Never Rest On Your Laurels

Just because something “has always worked” doesn’t mean it’s going to continue to work (or continue to work as efficiently).

In the dynamic world of business, the saying “never rest on your laurels” holds more truth than ever. What propelled a company to success yesterday might not necessarily be the formula for its tomorrow’s success. Market demands, technological innovations, and consumer preferences are in a perpetual state of evolution. While a particular strategy or product might have been a game-changer at one point, there’s no guarantee that it will remain relevant or effective in the future. This inherent unpredictability underscores the need for adaptability and forward-thinking in any business endeavor.

This reality pushes companies to be proactive, always forecasting and adjusting to the next potential shift. Relying solely on past successes can lull businesses into complacency, risking obsolescence in the face of changing tides.

TACTICAL Takeaway: To remain competitive and relevant, businesses need to cultivate a culture of continuous learning, innovation, and agility. In essence, the past can inform and guide, but it’s the vision and readiness for the future that will determine enduring success.

Embracing The Journey

To any entrepreneur reading this: the road to success is rarely a straight one. At times, it may seem like every decision leads to a dead end. But remember, every misstep is an opportunity to learn, grow, and pivot.

The trials you face in business are not meant to discourage you. Instead, they are meant to shape you, refine your vision, and improve your strategy. As the age-old adage goes, “smooth seas do not make skillful sailors.” It’s the challenges that will arm you with the experience and resilience necessary for long-term success.

So, the next time you face a setback, remember that your next big success could be just around the corner. Embrace failure as a part of the process, learn from your mistakes, and continue pushing forward with a renewed sense of purpose and determination.

Lastly, don’t forget to enjoy the journey. With so much time spent working and navigating challenges, it’s essential to find joy and have fun along the way.

Negativity Is a Losing Mindset

By Marc Lobliner


‘A good coach can change a game. A great coach can change a life.’

I coach my son’s U11 football team. I am just the line coach, but the dudes who coach with me are also in the same mindset as I am.

Positivity wins.

Let’s start off with last weekend’s game.

It’s 0-0, the opening kickoff is a short one and we fall on it.

You can hear our coaches getting our kids fired up and getting the offense ready for play. POSITIVE statements. A lot of “Let’s Go!” and energy.

On the other sideline, you hear the coaches angrily yelling at their players for the execution of the kick.

First play from scrimmage, our line makes every block and opens the outside for our running back to score.

You hear their coaches furiously yelling as we celebrate.

We celebrated and our fullback punched in the extra point.

After the kickoff, our defense held them to four and out. We got the ball again, touchdown. Extra point good.

14-0 in two offensive plays.s

Their coaches were still mad. Angry. Yelling.

We smiled, encouraged our kids, and ended up with a 42-0 mercy-rule win.

Our players are awesome, but not the biggest, not the fastest, not the strongest.

It’s all about culture and what you’re playing for.

We demand a lot of our athletes. Learn your plays, DO YOUR JOB, and we will win.

Every Tuesday after we win, I buy my linemen doughnuts and give them to everyone, telling them that a random lineman (changes weekly) said everyone deserves doughnuts. We don’t punish every mistake with extra running and up-downs. We focus on what we do RIGHT, and not what we do wrong.

The other game one of my linemen got called for a hold. He came off the field expecting to be scolded. I put my arm around him and said, “What happened?” He explained it and then I said, “You’re better than that guy, you don’t need to hold. Show the world how dominant you are!” He didn’t get one call the rest of the game and crushed it.

This is also my management style at work. Managers are usually garbage. You can do 1,000 things right and you mess up once and your manager attacks you.

Employees typically respond better to positivity, and numerous studies have found that positive reinforcement and a positive work environment can significantly improve employee motivation, performance, and well-being. Here are some reasons why, supported by various studies:

Increased Productivity: According to a study conducted by the University of Warwick, happiness led to a 12% spike in productivity, while unhappy workers were 10% less productive. The research shows that human happiness has large and positive causal effects on productivity.

Better Decision-Making Abilities: Research from the University of Pennsylvania’s Positive Psychology Center found that individuals who were induced to feel positive emotions were better at problem-solving and making decisions than those in a neutral state.

Boosts Creativity: Positive emotions widen attention and allow people to think more broadly and openly. This is discussed in the “broaden-and-build theory” by Barbara Fredrickson, which suggests that positive emotions broaden an individual’s momentary thought-action repertoires.

Enhanced Team Collaboration: A study from MIT’s Human Dynamics Laboratory found that teams that communicate effectively, with members actively reaching out and connecting with all other team members, were more successful. Positive interactions contribute to this dynamic.

Reduced Employee Turnover: According to the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), a positive work environment and culture encourages employees to stay longer in their jobs, thus reducing turnover rates. This is KEY at where our staff has mostly been there for 5+ years!

Better Health & Well-being: A study published in the Journal of Applied Psychology found that positive work environments and low job stress are linked to better health outcomes for employees, which in turn can lead to reduced absenteeism and increased productivity.

Increased Engagement: According to Gallup, workers who are engaged and have high well-being are more likely to be attached to their organizations and are more productive.

Enhanced Learning & Flexibility: Research in the field of positive psychology has shown that positive emotions can facilitate adaptive thinking and flexibility in cognitive processing. This helps employees adapt to new situations and learn more effectively.

Higher Levels of Satisfaction: A study by BrightHR found that happiness is a key indicator of job satisfaction. Happy employees are more likely to report high levels of satisfaction with their jobs than those who report low levels of happiness.

Creates a Positive Feedback Loop: A study published in The Journal of Positive Psychology found that experiencing positive emotions leads to higher levels of resilience, which in turn leads to increased positive emotions. This positive feedback loop has a myriad of beneficial effects in the workplace.

How about parenting?

Same thing. PRAISE YOUR CHILD! Make sure they know you love them. While bad behavior should be addressed, be sure to also reward good behavior. Kid had a good day at school? Get him ice cream! Tell him you love him. Say you’re proud of him.

As my mother said, “You catch more flies with honey than with crap.”

And one can’t deny the lifelong impact of a good coach. As the sign in the office says, “A good coach can change a game. A great coach can change a life.”

Be positive and be a winner!
