An interesting piece of information landed at Ape to Gentleman HQ this morning – and when I say interesting I mean fantastic and frightening, obviously. The crux of the story is as follows – British women are paying to learn how to shave their men – frightening. And the fantastic part, it’s because they want to spice up their sex lives! Interested? Thought so! Then read on…

‘If the way to a man’s heart has traditionally been through his stomach, it may now be by removing his beard,’ claims one of the world’s few female Master Barbers, Diane Wood.

British women up and down the country are paying Diane Wood up to £100 an hour to be taught the art of ‘seduction through shaving’ in her Shave Sexy classes being staged around the UK.

The “shaving tuition” is in response to requests from women who want to do something different to spice up their sex lives at home.

Master Barber Diane Wood will be running group shaving classes to turn the mundane, everyday task into an intimate experience that is fun and sexy. The UK tour launches with her first sold out class in London on 11th July. She’ll be talking her students through her Shave Sexy tips including – setting the tone for a sensual shave, getting your guy in the mood and how to give your man the sexiest shave ever.

Diane, who was brought up in New York, started the lessons over a year ago in the States and they have already proved a huge hit with thousands of women taking part to date.

Diane is one of the few female Master Barbers in the world, and having shaved a host of famous faces including David Letterman, Johnny Vaughan and the entire Wasps rugby team, she is now passing on her skills to teach other women how to ‘sex up’ shaving.
