Above from top: travel case, trimmer, groin – 3mm – 6 — trim guards, oil, and brush for the Panasonic ER-GK60.
From my research and personal manscaping trial use, I have determined that the Panasonic ER-GK60 is the best trimmer for manscaping for bodybuilders, male models and male strippers. All three of these occupations desire that their muscle definition be displayed the best possible way. There are some great prices for the Panasonic ER-GK60 currently listed on eBay.
Trim Guards vs No Guard
The Panasonic ER-GK60 comes with 3 trim guards or comb attachments.. Without a guard the 1mm fixed blade trimmer will cut close to the skin leaving an almost shaven feeling when touched without a need for shave cream. I use this option when shaving my chest and stomach areas. For those who wan it, this also works on the arms and legs just as well.
There is a 3mm (1/8″) trim guard for close but not complete hair removal, and a 6mm (1/4″0 trim guard in case you are wanting to trim but leave some hair in the area. The third guard is a 2mm (5/6 4″) for use in the groin area for clean and safe trimming. If you have a lot of hair in one particular area that you want removed, I recommend that you trim with the 6mm guard first, then go back without a guard and go over it again to cut it close and smooth.
It fits comfortably in your hand. It is not clippers that you hold over and dip into the hair. I’m talking about the old barber style trimmers . This is a wand style. Panasonic calls it the I-shaped design. You move it left and right with your hand, sliding it along the contours of your body. And it cuts in both directions. However going against the grain seems to cut the best.
The trimmer is rechargeable meaning there is no cord to get in the way while taking care of business. It comes with a recharger that plugs into the outlet. The trimmer easily snaps into it. I keep mine plugged into a bathroom outlet. Snap it out and it’s ready to start trimming.
The groin guard ia rounded on the end making it safe and easy to shave around the balls and the nether regions. There is no worry about nicks or pulled and tangled hairs. I’ ve also never felt any skin pinching. It’s comfortable and makes an awkward activity much easier and care-free.
The Panasonic ER-GK60 fits easily into your luggage for travel. Mine fits easily in my shaving travel kit that holds my razor, shaving cream and other items. I don’t have large hands and I find this trimmer easy to grip and hold onto without issue.
Benefits For Body Builders, Male Models And Male Stieppers
Manscaping And The Body Builder
For competition body builders, shaving your body hair is a must in order to give the best display of your muscle definition. The Panasonic ER-GK60 can take care of this quickly and easily.
Manscaping And The Male Model
A male model is basically a living, breathing mannequin. It’s all about the clothing. A smooth body will allow the clothing to move more freely and fit more closely to a defined and toned torso.
Depending on the requirements of the client, a male model may find himself needing to shave his body smooth so his toned body is better presented in a photo or video.. This trimmer can do the job, even if you find out onsite, you’d be able to pull out the trimmer and do a quick trim of your chest, etc. I purchased the Panasonic ER-GK60 based heavily on the reommendation of male fitness model, Weston Boucher.
Manscaping And The Male Stripper
A male stripper makes his living from tips and lap dances. Enticing a customer to step forward and tip or request a lap dance involves looking physically attractive. Although there are some clubs/bars whose clientel like furry chested men, there are also many who like a man with a smooth chest who is muscular and fit, Also, look at the dancers with Chippendales and other male reviews, there are very few with chest hair or very hairy bodies. Removing body hair in certain areas can encourage many tippers to respond.
Use of Oils And Lotions
The male stripper wants to encourage the audience members to tip or request a lap dance. Also, there are featured dancers where the male strippers rub oil or lotion on their bodies. Sometimes with a lap dance, the male stripper will have the customer rub oil or lotion on them. Having chest hair makes this a messy job. Also, a customer’s fingers could get tangled in the hair causing the male stripper pain. Removing the hair so th body is smooth make this activity more pleasant and enjoyable for both parties,

For some, a draw back for the Panasonic ER-GK60S might be it’s price. It is a little more costly than some of the others. But personally, I think it is well worth it. I am very happy with its performance for me and as you can see I am recommending it to others.
I highly recommend the Panasonic ER-GK 60S as a gift to your favorite, male bodybuilder, male model or male stripper, or any other male in your social circle that you know would appreciate it and find it of value in their grooming regimen. While writing this blog, I found the Panasonic ER-GK60 listed on eBay for less than $50 including shipping. I paid over $60 on Amazon for mine including shipping.
