    i cant believe i am making one of these threads...

    but after being teased by my wife of all people i finally sucked it up and shaved my legs.

    what a pain in the ass for a hairy bastard like me. It didnt help that i used disposable razors that were literally at least 20 years old. I hope this gets easier.

    my wife thinks shaved legs on guys are gross so once she started giving me grief about being the only guy at the races with hairy legs i couldnt take it anymore.

    Best thing I did for my legs (appearance). It's considerably faster than disposables. I buy my own replacement blades.

    New, as in fresh, not twenty year old Disposables (although lately I'm using a Gilette Mach3 that's past it's prime for use on my handsome face).

    Riskus - did you make sure to use clippers first, and follow with a shower?

    the scent of burning hair will linger almost as long as the rash on your legs.

    Next time I will use a mach 3 or something. Its not like Im using those to shave my face or anything

    Yeah I used clippers first. I probably should have used something more harsh like a weed wacker instead given how long my hair is. Showered before and after.

    The worst part were my inner thighs
