    It seems to me that there are many guys - all ages - that are shaving their legs. I see this at the gym and I see it at the beach. Is this something new, a fad, or an extention of manscaping? Anyone know?

    I don't shave my legs bare but I do trim them because I feel like my leg hair is ridiculously long. Coupled with the fact that my upper body is pretty much hairless or has light/fine hair and I think it looks weird. Trimming evens things out. I also think it looks better.

    I also have noticed a number of guys at my gym have shaved their legs and also arm pit hair.

    I trim my arm pit hair, but not completely shave. As for my legs, I keep them all natural. Something else that is fairly new that I am noticing is the shaving of forearms!

    I shave everything from my nose to my toes. It's much more comfortable for me, and easy to exfoliate the skin that way. I've noticed several guys that have started shaving everything under their underwear, but I think some are still a little self-conscious about shaving their legs. I think it's HOT to see a ripped vascular guy with NO body hair... Though neatly trimmed looks hot too.

    I trim my chest, armpits and pubes. Gotta say I am not a fan of the total shave (it reminds me too much of pre-pubesant youth - and that's not my thing as I like men with some hair that is well maintained).

    There's something seriously wrong with men shaving their legs. Even if they're muscular or body builders. A guy needs to look like a guy, not like a woman or a child. Or even worst, a freakin' pre-op tranny.

    Also not a fan of guys being shaved head to toe. As others have said...guys need to look masculine and body hair (for me anyway) is part of that look.

    I haven't noticed this phenomenon at all (not including the competitive swimmers and water polo players who train at my gym). To be perfectly honest, it seems like a bit too much maintenance for me. Actually, more than a bit - but I don't want to come across like I'm hating on people who like to shave their legs.

    Interesting......not unlike many things that people do - some like and some do not. I kind of got my answer - to each his own and whatever you are comfortable with. I agree with the maintenance comment - it's enough to shave my face at times, but I am thinking about it. I'm a nudist and shave the jewels and that won't change. However that smooth area goes right into really hairy legs and looks weird(?). I believe I'll try a trim first. Thanks for the comments - all good.

    I shave my arm pits to keep the rash away. I got rashes under my arms, until I started to shave. I do shave my cock and balls for the same reason.

    Agreed. Same for shaving pubes and armpits. Those body parts should NEVER be shaved.
