    It's comforting to know that I'm not the only woman who slacks up on the leg shaving during the winter months.

    I used to live in a hippie dippie town... I think before yoga became popular these healing sessions were even more prevalent. They often involved yoga, deep breathing, a lot of the same stuff that many of you probably currently are doing or have done in the past. Or at least the gym I used to go to had that kind of program that was marketed as a women's relaxation session. I enjoyed it! It was nice to be in the company of other women who were more interested in relaxing and being happy, instead of getting together with a room full of women to harp on men and complain all the time, or worse yet... gossip.

    A bunch of hairy women sitting around, drinking chai, burning incense and ranting about the problems with men. Sounds fun.

    I think I'll head out to the cabin with the guys, drink a few beers, do some fishing and talk about women.

    Actually... at this stage in my life, hanging with Michael sounds more fun. Well, except the beer part.

    What about a bunch of hairy men sitting around, drinking beer, smelling their own flatulence, and talking about the girl from last night?

    Actually, I'd be with Mike too, except for definately with the beers

    The image of a marine / firefighter shaving his legs is disturbing.

    Totally blows the whole 'hero' thing.

    It's not the seeing... it's the feeling. I don't like it when my legs feel hairy... and I don't even get sandpaper stubble like some chicks.

    Oh I knew that was going to get this place going

    No seriously, I do shave my legs, I have to because I race bikes remember. If you've ever tried picking gravel out of hairy legs or seen the infectious mess that results after a crash you'd know why...

    Actually, I have really fine hair in general. So it's not prickly or anything... I just like to have smooth skin I guess.

    I used to date a moslem that shaved just about everything below the neckline. Religious thing... but it was an interesting tactile experience.

    I figured that was why...but Mike, uh - bike races are a summer thing. Did you find you likely the silky soft feel?

    Races = summer....

    Riding = Year round

    Crashes = Any time....

    Believe it or not...you'll actually get made fun of if you have hairy legs on a bike....don't ask.
