Wax hurts as hell. Bodygroom works great even for the whole body, i´m a bear and at summer i look like a baby w/o pain.

I'll step up to the "looks good" reason. Hairy white legs full of bugs and road grime looks horrid. I also trim the arms close as all my veins and muscles stick out. Now when I do fall, it's just a bonus.

It only hurts the first time - but if you find a good waxer hang onto them, some are just shocking at it :D

:unbelievable:

bJay I'm never going to look at you the same way again!

I was just wondering what a females perspective on men doing this was... and then I got to thinking are there actually any women on this forum? I can't recall having noticed any... ever... is this ocd weigh weenie-ism more of a male thing?

I'm a red-haired yeti and damn proud of it!

I don't shave my legs because:
1) My girlfriend wouldn't like it
2) I don't feel the need to show off
3) I don't feel like taking that much time just to show off
4) I spend 5-min a week shaving my face, shave time is done after that
5) Bugs and road grime makes it look like this Irish-boy can get a tan
6) Every one of us looks rediculous in our cycyling garb, what's hairy legs on top of that?

My (gf) too.

She even prohibits shaving the chest (not that I was any way inclined to do so) as she thinks men should have hair. That all part of our manly appearance.


Her aside, it's still not me.

Just did it as a tribute to my sister, who's going through chemo right now.

Very weird feeling, and looking, since I'm hairy as a sasquatch!! Definitely a learning process, as the only thing I've ever shaved was my face.

I think once the razor burns goes away, I'll be able to live with it.
