My boyfriend's goatee is a lethal weapon...

I have been dating this guy for a while now and he has a goatee, it grows very coarse & thick… When he kisses me, the pain overpowers the pleasure most of the time and my face is left red and sore. He’s willing to shave it off, but I know he doesn’t really want to so I am hoping maybe there are some tips to make it better.

So I welcome any advice on ways to trim it, make it softer, etc… Pretty much anything that will make it a better kissing experience.

Thanks in advance. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />

try using a conditioner or hot oil treatment like you would for dry or course hair

He has to go one way or another, either take it all the way off, or go natural, and keep it moisturized for softness.

Any trimming will leave it with sharp prickly edges.
