I have an issue where if I do it once, I'll do it multiple times in a row. I've made my ears bleed a few times before from doing this. It's due to my OCD and the anxiety release sensation I get from cleaning my ears. So....yeah, I clean them lots. Far too much.
I don't think of it as cleaning my ears. It's more a gentle manner of drying my earholes after a shower. I don't want to have wet ears that lead to infection.
edit (because i had a random thought in the shower this morning and playing by the rules): What do y'all do about ear hairs? Do you pluck them with tweezers or use a nose and ear hair trimmer? Or do you just grow a bush out of your ear because that's nature's way of protecting your ears? I know some of you are too young for the ear hair dilemma and I've never noticed a woman with hairy ears. Just wondering and thinking @ThisIsBananas might have something to say about it.
