Guy here.

I don't like to shave, but I don't hate it. It's a minor expense and sometimes it's inconvenient, but in that way it's like brushing my teeth - I don't like doing it, either, but I prefer doing it to not doing it. The same with shaving.

I don't shave every day. If I do, it dings up my face too much - the sweet spot is about every four to five days, which happens to be when it gets long enough that I begin to dislike the look (though at least once a winter I get lazy long enough to sport a beard, which I usually let hang around for a month or so).

Happily, I haven't had a job in over 20 years where regular shaving was a necessity.

I hate it. it's tedious, and it never gets all the hair. There's still stubble, and it grows back too fast as well. I shave one day, and it's thickening up again in a few days. Luckily I am blonde, so stubble isn't too bad.

Down there isn't fun either. It's best to just stay on top of it by doing it every few days. Even then, navigating around the boys isn't pleasant. Does anyone have any suggestions/products for down there? I've nicked my scr0tum (yes, that is a censored word here) one too many times going with a standard beard trimmer and I won't do it with a razor.
Aside from trimming I don't know why any bloke would even bother with shaving or waxing down there.

I'm sure in days gone by they thought that it wasn't right for a man to shave his face...

Shave my face, hate it, so I use an electric razor. I don't mind if I get a bit stubbly.

I am so used to shaving that it is just part of the shower process. I shave everyday in the shower. I like the feel of drying smooth skin as opposed to stubbly skin. Drying stubbly skin doesn't feel clean.

Watching a man shave his face is very sexy to me! MMMM

It's funny. I am genetically fairly hairless for a guy but have hairy legs. I like my legs smooth. Sometimes I have shaved them, but it takes ages to be really worth it. Don't know why I like them smooth, I just do. Maybe I want to be half female but no that's not it. I'm certainly not homosexual nor have any inkling of such a tendency (that's for sure!!!!). I just don't like hair on my body. I also don't like pubes.

Do they have an Epilady equivalent for men?
