    are you a woman? haha if your a man... ok just do it the same way you do your face i guess. if youre a woman, you should have shaved at a younger age, where you could have asked your parents for advice. alot of people are afraid to shave, i would say i was afraid to shave for the first time because you always see people shaving before they go on a date and they cut themselves and end up with little tissues on their face. its not really like that but its stupid to show that in a movie. it kinda puts fear in young boys. i never cut my face when i shave.

    Please. Just why would a 50+er want to do that?

    Of course, it could give you an extra optical inch if you do it correctly.

    Here is a serious response...http://www.gillettevenus.com/us/. Make sure the sound on the computer is on to get the full effect . Do not use a man's face razor! It will be a bloodbath . Good luck.

    Lots of shaving cream and a lady's razor Those men's razors can be hazardous on the shin area - they have a tendency to take out little chunks of skin

    If you have an electric razor, or better yet an electric hair trimmer, use that on your legs first to knock down the tall stuff.

    Then, use plenty of "gel" lather (it stays on better than the Gillette Foamy style of shave cream).

    Take your time, and try to make longer smooth strokes.

    You'll probably knick yourself until you get the hang of it.

    Finally, have some lotion or skin care stuff ready to put on your legs to reduce itchiness.

    Be prepared to feel a bit "weird" at first...pants feel different, crawling into bed feels different, going out in public with shorts feels *really* different.

    The good news is, it's a "serious cyclist" tribal ritual, and many women find it a turn on (YMMV).

    For some reason I keep seeing the image of blood swirling with water down the bathtub drain. You know? Like in Hitchcock's "Psycho".

    Me too. Which is why I decided the better part of valor was to drink a beer tonight and buy a women's specific razor and lots of shaving goop--tomorrow.

    I've read that committed cyclists prefer to pull the hairs out, thereby reducing any last remaining drag caused by stubborn stubble.

    I bet a roll of duct tape would do the trick just fine and you will not have to worry about nicks......

    I'm really surprised noone has asked for pics.......

    It was because of a bee sting for me

    So here I was out in the middle of BFE and I ride thru a group of bees minding their own business and a couple got caught in my heretofore untouched leg hairs. They promptly stung the crap out of me, all the while trying to remember if I was allergic to bee stings.

    Ever since, start of the year, season sheer the wool down to the nubbins....

    Yep...it also makes it a lot easier to put on sunscreen, makes your legs look more muscular, and (perhaps I've already mentioned this) women dig it - at least, fit women seem to dig it (and those are the only ones that interest me! ).

    Very educational. I think I'm the Venus Divine. And the intensive moisture strips are so intriguing.

    He's not doing it to be faster.

    He is doing it in the name of scientific research. Research into the unsubstantiated claims of the "fringe benefits" of having smooth legs.

    Should his research bear (or is that bare?) fruit, several of us may be shaving this summer.

    did this myself for the first time about a month ago. Just soap and a bic razor...nary a nick or cut. For me, it's the ease of sunscreen application. At my age, I doubt any chicks will find it sexy.

    Excellent advice. And don't forget lotion -- dry skin on legs is nasty.

    Re the turn on...mmm,mmm, mmm...I can say no more. >lascivious grin<

    I feel goofy enough in shorts with tan lines mid thigh, shaving would be too much. My 13yo daughter would have a heart attack she already tells me go hide when I come out in my bibs.
    The problem with the gene pool is that there is no lifeguard and the shallow end is much too large
