As nature intended or a smooth operator?

I shave once per week, about the time things get unbearably prickly. It sure feels go to step out, dry off, and feel the smoothness!

It's like clean fresh linens! Mmmmmmmm

I was never that hairy, however, as I got older the hairs on my legs started to curl and stand out a bit and I didn't like the aesthetics of that, so I started waxing then. (My gf at the time preferred that too as she really wasn't into body hair). Anyway, waxing would often resulted in one or two ingrowing hairs, which can be a pain apart from being tender, they also tended to be somewhat red in colour. So, in the end, having done a considerable amount of research, I bought an IPL machine. It recommend using it once a week for a number of weeks, shaving immediately before use. Even after two sessions there was already a noticeable reduction in hair growth. After four weeks it was only necessary to treat the few hairs that grew back. For me it was a great investment!

I've had IPL and VPL more recently on my body over the years - at a salon - they convinced me to try that rather than waxing - so I am smooth and can be lazy and don't have to wax anymore.Its an excellent investment in personal grooming when you look at what you would spend over the years waxing vs getting 6 IPL/VPL treatments to permanently remove all hair.
(I've even had my underarms done)

I prefer smooth - but I understand its all personal choices.

I tried shaving for a while in the 70's when I was still uncertain whether my clothing preferences were just self-expression as a man or a sign of deeper gender identity issues. But the forest grows so quickly, it took upwards of an hour every time and left me with bloody stumps all over my legs. Thus I have not shaved my legs in some 40 years, and only rarely shave my neck and face when my skin starts to itch.

A minor side effect of this is, sheer tights don't last very long on me (plus they look horrid). So when it's cold enough to wear tights, I wear thick, opaque styles.

Since I started this thread I've found myself shaving regularly, I find the feeling 100% more sensual than when I left my legs hairy. When I wear a skirt straight after it feels absolutely fantastic, when I wear shorts it's the same feeling, when I go to bed (either boxers or a nightie/tee shirt, either way until winter my legs are bare) the feeling is Mmmmmmmm 😍, even when I'm wearing trousers the feeling of my skin next to the fabric is so intensified.
I'm a 100% convert, the only drawback is the constant attention they require, almost twice a week!!!!
It makes shower/bath time even longer especially when it's added to a facial shave and a little chest hair manscaping 😏

More that 30 years ago now, when I was away in Germany working I experimented with all-over shaving and experienced the sensual pleasures described, but maintaining that was a right chore and when MOH came over, she gave it a resounding thumbs down, so I stopped and let the primeval man-forest take over once more.
Any cosmetic 'improvement' must now be achieved by wearing opaques and that only in the colder months.

I guess I've been fortunate (for a girly guy) as I was never too hairy all around. I have little to no hair (save for a stray one here and there) on my back and shoulders, just small patches on my upper chest, and my arms and legs are about average. So keeping the legs shaved, and a once over on my chest is about all I need to do.

I've seen some men that look like werewolves all over... I can't imagine a cute blouse looking too appealing unless they keep it shaved regularly.

Generally speaking I like my body. I don't like the Buddha belly, but that's not Mother Nature's fault... that's my own lack of discipline and poor decision making when it comes to diet.
