Wow, is shaving your legs really that hard?
Not as hard as shaving your face and neck. Stop whining so much and shave them ugly legs
22: Women don't exist to please men, ya know. It's only leg hair. Everyone has it. We are expected to shave our legs, armpits, & bikini area. I'd take the small surface area of a face/neck over that, especially since it's socially acceptable to have scruff or a beard.
No one can compare the body hair on men and the body hair on women. Personally I want to lay next to my girl and rub her smooth legs, not feel like I'm laying next to some hairy legged guy. There is a reason why they have "Th Bearded Lady" in the freak show at carnivals.
Honestly, it takes me at least 20 minutes to shave my beard. That's using trimmers and an electric razor, so I can imagine what a pain in the ass it is to shave your legs. There's absolutely nothing wrong with a girl having a bit of stubble on her legs, it doesn't make them any less attractive. Sure, guys do love the feel of a super smooth leg but I don't think it's really that important. Like someone else stated, in winter you girls don't keep up with shaving them quite as much. I know during winter I hardly shave my face at all. We all have to make some sort of sacrifice in grooming when it comes to having a partner, if you can't get over the fact your boyfriend has a beard or that your girlfriend's legs aren't completely smooth, you oughta get your priorities sorted out.
Like every other woman has said, it is a pain in the ass and time consuming to keep your legs shaved along with our armpits and bikini area, plucking our eyebrows, dealing with razor burn if you happen to shave too much and not to mention when you accidentally cut too deep. And I know I'm not the only woman that doesn't have my legs constantly shaved during the winter. Too much hassle just to have them covered by jeans/sweatpants all the time.
Shaving is very time consuming. Takes me at least 30 min to shave my beard, I couldn't imagine having to constantly shave more than just my face. Seems like the guys who can't grow facial hair so it takes them 5 minutes to shave can't comprehend how tedious shaving actually is.
Why do girls HAVE to shave and guys don't? It's hair. It's natural. I would like to point out that it does take more than 5 minutes to shave your legs. It takes roughly 15-20 to get them absolutely hairless. Even after that time period, I still have a little bit of missed hairs that I have to go back and get. Armpits you can do whenever you take a shower, if you have time, so that's not that big of a hassle. Sometimes you can do your bikini area as well. My boyfriend and I live together, so he knows how often I shave my legs. He doesn't find it unattractive that I don't do it all the time. During the summer, I shave just about every week, so they are smooth, but I always have stubble. You can't keep that away. But in the winter, I don't wear shorts, so it's not like anyone is going to see it anyway. Shaved legs may be nice, but hairy ones are just fine too! I'd like to rub my guys' leg and not feel hair too, but that'll never come true.
How the fuck did this become such a long conversation? Women don't have to shave if they don't want to just like guys don't have to shave if they don't want to. But most people think hair is unattractive/unprofessional and if that concerns you, you should shave. Simple as that, right?
I agree with #177. However, I think in a relationship, grooming preferences should have a role. If neither partner cares about the hair, then it doesn't matter. But if one does, the other should respect that. It's a compromise for the relationship. Also, it's a little weird that almost every single pro shaving comment has gotten downvoted to the point that they're hidden, but most of the anti shaving comments have a ton of upvotes.
I can't possibly see how it can take someone 20 minutes to shave their legs. It takes 5 minutes 10 max. And you only have to do it maybe twice a week. Is that really so much time that you feel the need to bitch about it? If you don't want to shave that's fine, but don't bitch about how much time it takes when in reality it isn't even 1% of your week. Nobody cares about a bit of stubble. You're just lazy, and coming up with excuses.
How does its affordability take away from its usefulness? The amount spent on shaving supplies to stay hairless that long isn't as much, but it makes laser treatment seem a lot less expensive. If its alright for people to "go natural", its just as okay for people to want to be hairless. For those who want the later, laser treatments really are the best way to go...
I have to assume that "Daisy" is also what he calls your pussy. Oh, didn't you know? Well now you do. You're welcome.
Not to mention, some people, myself included, work most of the time and I have to wear long pants all year round and for the most part my friends work opposite schedules so all I do for the most part is work and go home. Great life right? Haha Anyways, with that being said I do not necessarily have to shave them because it's not winter yet. Who's going to see whether or not I've shaved my legs?
Ew... never stop taking care of yourself just because you have a man. They'll realize eventually.
You do know that way back in the day women never shaved, right? Not to mention (and I've witnessed this) there are still some women that don't shave period. Just because she didn't want to shave for however long does not make it 'ew'. It just means she didn't feel like shaving.
I don't shave every day. Often, I'm more cactus-like than smooth. But my boyfriend doesn't care, and sure as hell doesn't comment about them. Girls already do so much to impress not only males but other people, such as makeup and clothing and hair, that I guess it's the end of the damn world if we don't shave for a few days.
I would just like to point out that the OP said she NEEDS to shave. Indicating that it is something that she does not feel opposed to, and more than likely has just stopped doing for some reason or another. I doubt she would have said needs if it's something she never does.
