As little as possible. Unless I'm wearing shorts or a skirt or getting laid, I don't bother.

During the winter? Almost never. I'm wearing tights and warm pants 99% of the time. What use is there is it in doing so?

During the spring?summer?fall?: 1-2 x/week.

It's strange, but after I had my baby, hair stopped growing on my legs so I only have to shave 2-3x a year. The bad thing about that is that I have also lost a lot of hair on my head. I would rather have more hair on my head and shave my legs everyday if I have to.

For a couple of years, the hair quit growing on my legs and I was happy because I never had to shave. Then I was diagnosed with diabetes, started taking meds and eating healthy, and the hair all grew back. I had a lot of ingrown hairs as it was growing back.

So I like to shave my legs now. It's a sign that my body is healthy and is doing what it's supposed to do. I shave every other day. It's not the appearance of hair that bothers me, I just like my legs to be very smooth and a little bit shiny.

Every day. Even when I'm single. Even in winter. I have fine blond hair, but I HATE the feeling of even the tiniest amount of stubble. I really shave my legs for me, not for others. I like them smooth.

Every other day. I alternate with shampooing my hair.

I used to not shave my legs for months, but now I try to do it every time I shower. It depends on how the weather is in the winter too, if it's "shorts weather" I tend to shave more than if we have a nasty winter.

Once a week in summer, my hair doesn't grow very fast and isn't thick or dark. I shave less in winter though.

In the shorts/skirts/bathing suit season, about every day to every other day - I have dark hair and Mediterranean background.

In winter...I'll go 2 weeks at times. My skin thanks me for it, and my husband likes it for some reason...LOL.
