That is what my mother said too, so it must be true. ;)

I meant I never noticed the stream of cold air escaping from above mentioned appliances. We have a freezer part in the lower halve of the cabinet. When squatting in the door opening to reach inside I have to do it quickly to avoid frost bite. ;)


Gee - I thought the statement was "If you can't stand the heat - get out of the kitchen" !
"Kilt-On" -or- as the case may be "Skirt-On" !
WHY ?
Isn't wearing a kilt enough?
Well a skirt will do in a pinch!
Make mine short and don't you dare think of pinching there !

I prefer smooth legs

I used to get a regular full leg wax 6 weekly and my bikini line waxing every 7-8 weeks but then I made the move to permanent removal.
It cost more upfront but no more maintenance ever after 7 sessions - that was years ago.

I don't have to do anything now - I love that! I recommend the investment. I feel I need to have good full legs because I wear skirts all the time, and do like to wear short shorts/minis too.

ps. on a side note I do remember the feeling of freshly waxed/shaved legs - and it made things feel colder - and it almost felt as though it wasn't your own legs that brushed against something? Sounds weird - but thats how it felt for me.
Nowadays though - if you keep hairless you get used to it - and I don't get the sensation anymore.

In my opinion though - legs look much better smooth. And I try to keep high standards of presentation

I personally love the look and feel of shaved legs. I have been doing it now for years. I also think that skirts look better with shaved legs and I say that because I think we have been conditioned to seeing skirts with shaved legs. Hairy legs and skirts tend to look 'out of place' (not that I am saying men have to shave, but its just how we have been accustomed over the years). I also think that a skirt is better received (if one is noticed by the public) if your have shaved legs as it looks like every other skirt wearer.

Maybe that's why I react so positively to women not shaving their legs! But I felt that way long before I started wearing skirts.

A few weeks ago I bought a pack of cheap safety razors. I'm completely new to what we call "wet shaving (nat scheren)" in the Netherlands so I tried it dry, lazy as I am. The results were slightly better than an electric razor. The next time I tried it under the shower. The results were a little better but I was still not there. The third time I used water and soap and that did the trick. My legs became very smooth, also when you felt against the grain. It shaved so well that I cut a few pieces of upper skin from my knees. The result was quite bloody.
Next time I will do the long haul, upper and lower legs, with the safety razor and the knees electric. I'm learning all the time.

The strange thing is that even with that little stuble removed, it felt cooler and the fabric of the skirt was more noticable.

Once you get addicted to the feeling of depilated legs you can’t go back. I was never particular about the razor, although I always use shave gel over cream. But then I tried the Gillette Venus five blade disposables. I can get about a month’s worth of twice weekly shaves before I toss one in the recycling. The operation is much smoother and though they aren’t nick-proof, nicks are rare. I always have nick issues around my kneecaps and Schlatter’s knobs. Beach lion, I recommend using some type of exfoliating scrubber on your legs before shaving, either a loofa or a nylon mesh bunchie. I think maybe ther removal of dead skin and opening the follicles is what makes the following shave somewhat more smooth in result.
As a matter of fact, the sun DOES shine out of my ...

I understand why women shave their legs is typically the hair grows slowly and is sparse.
Before I went on an estrogen regimen about 9 years ago I had a lot of hair on my legs. Now I shave my legs only once a month to clean things up.

You do get used to smooth legs - and it is much better in my opinion smooth.
I used to get waxed, then had permanent removal years ago when I realised skirts were going to be a big part of my wardrobe going forward.

Aesthetically I think smooth legs look better with a skirt - especially if your hemline is mid thigh or above the knee.
