If you shave (pits, pubes, legs), do you wish that you didn't have to? Or have you gotten so used to it by now that it would not feel right not to? What's the longest you've gone without doing it?

Women are known for having many love/hate relationships, like with our ex-boyfriends or with carbs. But then there’s also our greatest frenemy of all: showers.

Shaving annoys me to no end!

It's a necessary evil.

That's all I'm going to write.

As a guy, I shave my facial hair every week and my arms only during summertime every 3 weeks. I made the choice to do so and am not obliged to continue. Yes, it does feel uncomfortable if my face or arm hair is untrimmed and way too thick. Trimming from time to time helps.

I love showering though, and have a long history of spending too much time in the shower (ask anyone who has stayed over ). Nothing beats a relaxing cool shower after those rare summer days when its properly hot outside.

I shave my face, that's it. I don't even do that every single day, though I probably should. I blend in with a crowd much better like that.

Hate it, hate it, hate it. I'm a dark brunette, and I need to do my legs/underarms every other day during the Summer. Using an electric razor takes forever, but I nick the crap out of my legs if I try to do a quick shave with a regular razor. Gah.

And I will confess to shaving my upper lip as well.

I tried waxing exactly once.

I don't think anyone actually enjoys it. We just do it.

The waxing strip videos might be helpful for you and might make the hair removal process shorter:

Just my 2 cents to help you out.
