    I've been shaving my legs for almost a year now, and I've yet to find a good method to do it.
    I currently use a Venus razor and baby oil (it provides such a smooth shave), but more often than not, I get razor burn on my thighs. Needless to say, it's a deterent. I've tried an eppilator, but I can't stand it. I'm too much of a pussy, and too cheap to wax.
    What the fuck am I doing wrong, here?! None of my female friends can help me, all I get is, "I don't get razor burn..."
    Bitches.

    ...black people typically have body hair. Firm, lil dark curls that erupt from all over them. I've dated enough of their bodies to know the pain of those damned curls sticking in your teeth. But, I will say this... As far as the 'disgusting shower' test, typically the body hair of a black man washes away a lot easier than that of a white man. My boifriend and Ferron leave all of this body hair in my shower, whereas whenever my black friends stay over, it seems to all rinse away. And some of them are really hairy :eek3: .

    FYI, my excuse is the whole native american genetics (which could also be the reason for so many other 'black' guys, as there was a lot of mixing). :wiggle:

    I like my body hair, and I like men with body hair.

    I can't stand that hairless look...

    I tend to be attracted to hairy men only because I don't grow shit. (Besides on my head, the only thing I grow are pubes. No real body hair for me...but that doesn't make me less than a man. :squint: )

    what the hell do you need nair for?


    Unless, it's preemptive because your bother is sooo damned hairy. :mamoru: I mean, you're gay just like him, so you could be hairy, just like him.

    Wow, I usually pick up good advice from you guys. Hope this helps :)

    Use a trimmer first to get rid of the really long stuff, or run the razor backwards over your skin to knick off moderately long hairs.

    Soften everything up in a nice warm shower.

    For up to about mid-thigh, just use shaving gel (or your baby oil works fine), and run the razor back and forth over the same areas a few times. This gives a great close shave, picks up any stragglers you may have missed, and helps keep the razor unclogged. Just be careful not to accidently run the blades sideways. Once you're good at this, it is much faster than the long slow strokes.

    For the upper thigh, especially the inner-upper thigh, shave WITH THE GRAIN. I know it may be hard to tell when you hair is all long and curly, but I've found that it tends to grow straight down in the front, straight back on the inside and outside, and up in the very back towards your butt.

    Rinse with the coldest water you can stand.

    My secret to overcome razorburn is a quick slather with a combination of:

    1 squirt Lubriderm lotion
    1 squirt Cortizone-10 creme
    1 squirt Neutrogena Rapid Clear spot gel

    (Or you could just buy some Bikini-Zone, but I think mine works better.) Be sure to have time to fully dry your legs before you get dressed, and be extra conscious about keeping the area clean & dry until the hair re-emerges.

    I'll shave my upper-inner thigh and personal areas if I have to, but I prefer Nair. It is less irritating for me, and cheaper than waxing. Be sure to test it on the inside of your elbow before you do it though.

    I WOULD Nair, but it only melts it off at the surface.
    I've heard rubbing alcohol after the shower, and then lotion when thats dry.
    Sound familiar?

    I have been shaving my legs for 7 yrs and I think the results vary from your genetics. I always have softer legs than any girl I know. The fastest way for me is in the shower because the running water rinses my razor naturally so I don't have to waste any time rinsing the hair out. I start at the ankle and work up to my knee, then from the knee up i shave with the direction the hair grows(this prevents razor burn) and then when I get out I lotion up and I am fine.
    I think its hot when guys shave, especially guys who have alot of hair because it can hide the muscle tones in their legs and I rather see muscle than hair......
