    I Don't See The Point

    I absolutely refused to shave my legs until I was 16. Then my mother used bribery to convince me. I have since gone away to college and have gone back to not shaving. I wear long pants whenever I am going to see my parents. Shaving in high school actually gave me insomnia. I...

    Why Bother?

    I don't see the point in shaving my legs, or anything else for that matter anymore. I used to shave all the time, but I recently got out of a relationship and decided against it. It costs too much money for a good razor, its uncomfortable if you don't keep it up every few days...

    Why I Don't Do It

    I don't shave because I really hate how it feels when the hair grows back, especially in the inner thigh/bikini area (thanks to really sensitive skin). I want to be hairless, but since I can't afford laser hair treatments I have decided to just deal with being hairy rather than...

    I Never Need To

    The hair on my legs has always been very light and wearing shorts for many years probably helped. So I count myself lucky that I never need to shave.

    Me Neither

      Some years back when I was regularly riding long distances, it was suggested by fellow cyclists that I shave my legs.  I was told I could save minute or two on a four- or five-hour ride. I'd be regularly cycling two hundred, sometimes two hundred...

    It's Strange

    I do occasionally shave my legs, but that's because I like the feel of them against the covers when I sleep. I usually wear pants and there's no rhyme or reason to when I shave them. But sometimes, when I DO shave, even if it's not to attract a mate, I feel like society's dupe...

    Only Because I Don't Have To

    I am genetically lucky to not have to shave my legs because, well I don't grow hair on em. hmm maybe I don't count then. If I did grow hair on them then I would shave because I like to wear shorts and skirts

    If Only

    I wish I didn't care what people thought or maybe lived in Europe.  Then I would just not cover my (hairy) legs.  I like to wear medium length skirts (below the knees), but I have to wear tights or leggings.

    I shave my armpits and my crotch area

    but I really don't like shaving my legs. I like having leg hair and it makes me sad when I do shave it. My boyfriend doesn't like it but I just feel uncomfortable with shaved legs.

    I Never Really Got Into It.....

    Which I am thankful for now, because my hair is soft & light. It doesn't grow all that much. The only time I tend to do any shaving is if I know my legs are going to be on display (shorts, sex, etc.)LOL..... My legs actually have areas on them that are bald....The hair just...

    I will for very special occasions shave my legs.

    ..which amounts to almost never. I don't see the point. It just grows back the next day and it makes my showers take forever. I do shave my arms about once a week...but it only takes like 5 minutes so I'm more willing to do the arms...but I am considering giving that up too. I do...

    Not that there is great need to start doing it, no, I just admit and confess that I don't shave my legs and that I never did.

    They're Not That Bad

    Most of the time I'm too lazy to shave my legs. The hair is really fine so nobody sees it unless they practically put their noses to my legs. I used to shave regularly when my husband and I started dating and while he touches my thighs a lot (which have no hair) he doesn't really...

    Don't Think Its Necessary...

     Hi! I have just recently stopped shaving my legs because I don't think its a necessary thing for women to do just because our culture does it. I think each woman has an opinion and they can do want they want.  Another thing I don't think its necessary is I don't like...

    My body hair looks a lot like cat hair on my

    arms and legs. They're so thin and almost see through so I never shaved them my entire life. My twin sister does because after she has shaved them the first time, the hair grew back but it was darker and thicker so now she has to spend the rest of her life shaving them. Tsk tsk...

    Not Hippie, H-a-p-p-y.

    There's a quotation by Rumi that states: “Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.” One of the barriers our society has conditioned us to build against self-love is shaving our...

    I Don't See Why I Should.

    I only shaved my legs from the time I was 11-13. I hated doing it even then because I saw no point in it. It wasn't unhygienic to keep the hair, guys didn't have to do it, and I saw no reason why it would be unattractive compared to head hair.  By the time I was in 8th grade I...
