Here are some other guy’s stories about them shaving their legs:
Tom, 24: I wanted to see what all the fuss was about, and I had a mate who was a swimmer who loved how it felt – he said men should shave legs to shave time off their PBs. So, I went for it. I loved it too, and to be honest, these calves deserve an Insta account of their own.
Aaron, 22: My girlfriend had no problem with men shaving legs – but I didn’t realise the difference between shaving legs and trimming them. I cracked on with the pink razor I found in my girlfriend’s shower and she was so confused when I showed her two legs that looked like varnished hotdogs. After the hair grew back, I trimmed it with an electric razor to make it more comfortable and a little cleaner – we now no longer share leg shavers.
Theo, 17 I’d just come back from a run and I wanted to shave my legs again because I prefer how it feels. I didn’t bother washing my legs before I shaved them, and it was so painful because the sweat matted all my hair together. It felt like I was shaving a yak. Looking back, I should’ve probably jumped in the shower and used a shaving foam… Making sure my legs are fresh is now a part of my self-care routine – so is turning off FIFA when I’m losing and binge-watching Netflix.
