Question for you who wax your calves

Notices
Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

A waste of time for the gain. I have better things to do with my time and I'm sure most others do to.

It makes wounds easy to clean, and muscles easier to massage.

that’s the primary reason. Manscaping is important(unless you’re married).

It's still appreciated. (and I'm commenting on noodle soup's general manscaping comment, not legs specifically).
