Nonetheless if it deeply concerns you then remove it. It is not the easiest of places to reach with a razor. Your sense of direction when using a mirror for guidance is not always a 100%. The safest way to remove bum hair is to have an expert shave or wax it for you. Why do we assume and okay the fact that it is natural for men to have a hairy chest and bottom?
