I'm a member of the American gorilla club....I shave and wax nothing.

The only thing I would consider is my back and my SO would have to do it for me because I can't reach it myself.

I'd do nothing else.

Wow Jenny......how about some men just prefer themselves shaved? To each his own, do whatever makes you feel good about your body without worrying about any ones idiotic ideas about a systematic eradication of masculinity. (but thanks for the laugh!)

Life is way to short to take things soooo seriously!!!!

I hate to break it to you, but "real" women have plenty of body hair, and weren't socially pressured to remove it until less than 100 years ago. It's not body hair that makes a man a man (or lack of it that makes a woman a woman,) that's all fashion and it's constantly in flux.

Sorry for bringing this back to the top. I started shaving my pubic hair 15 years ago and my underarms 11 years ago. I shaved due to a heat rash that kept coming back. A week after my body got use to being shaved I never had another rash. This May I started shaving my legs to help keep me cooler, my wife would rather I didn’t but is ok with it if it keeps me cooler. I will tell you the truth, I absolutely love having shaved legs. I will keep shaving until the day I die. I feel so clean and it does help keep me cooler.

Like all the other straight guys in the U.S., I don't shave my legs when wearing shorts.

If I went swimming in Europe and wore a bikini-cut speedo (like most men in Europe do,) I would shave my legs and armpits. When you're in a speedo, your thighs and your butt are sticking out, just like girls in their bathing suits. I have a rather feminine build; proportionally long, slender legs and a curvy figure; I can't imagine the ladies would find it sexy if I left my thighs unshaved.

Same if I had to wear a kilt (not that I would anytime soon). It's a short, formal skirt; if I wore a kilt to a Scotsman's wedding the women probably wouldn't want to see my bare thighs hairy.

I'm not at all a transvestite, but I would think if you're showing off as much of your legs as the women, they wouldn't want to see your legs all hairy and sweaty.
