I've always had difficulty doing it without potentially nicking the bag

You need to stop the bleeding. If it just a small cut, then you can put a bandage of somesort around your ball. A plaster would probably do the trick. Don't keep poking your balls, and messing with them. The break in the skin needs a little time to be repaired with blood platelets.

Never shaved my balls, but have occasionally cut off the hair that grows on the first half-inch of my penis, near the base. That's because if you roll a condom all the way back, when you later remove it by rolling it back off those hairs get stuck in the rolled latex, and then it pulls on the hairs and hurts, and then you have to unroll it and try again, this time holding back those hairs with your other hand. Or you can try sliding it off near the back, but this is difficult sometimes. Is this not a problem for anyone else? (sorry if slight thread drift)

I don't really see any point in doing this. Trim the long pubes with a shaver (Schick Quattro Titanium Trimmer ftw), shave base of cock and you're golden. Leave the balls alone unless it gets ridiculously overgrown.

The ball hair always goes away. Likewise with the base of the penis, like Lee626 said. I try to keep a nice line.

Pubes are trickier though. It takes trial and error to find what length works best for you, because it's a fine line between two very different extremes. On the positive side of this line, it's all about "Hey, nice, well-groomed, attention has been paid to this thatch, and it does make it look a little bigger, at least if you're feeling confident." But don't ever shave it all bare*, or you enter the territory of "Creepy, pre-pubescent, always makes it look smaller, and possibly a bit sad, depending on how charitable your partner is feeling."

*Note: This does not apply if you happen to have a giant cock. If that's the case, do whatever you want.

The basic rule for all shaving is to trim before you shave if you have more than stubble, or you're going to miss a lot of hairs and blunt the blade.

Many people use a Seconda as a cock ring.

I read this as "Many people use an anaconda as a cock ring."

I wish this thread were called "should i even shave my balls."

I have to say, in any self-respecting top ten list of ilx thread titles, this one's gotta be in the top 5

nine years pass...

Haven't done this in a while for the first time in nearly 20 years? Not an aesthetic choice, just pure covid laziness. It feels like I'm smuggling a cactus in my drawers. Prickly interregnum, indeed.
