It is becoming very trendy for guys to shave or trim off more than just thier facial hair. In fact many men have decided to shave off all of thier body hair completley. What do you shave or trim and why?

The new Gillette body shavers do a fantastic job! No stubble and easy to maneuver!! So far no little red spots so I'd say I may have found a new razor! LOL!

Good to hear your weather is summertime warm now, RenGas.

It's been warm to very hot here for the last few weeks already. Another blistering summer in SoCal, we're so spoiled, lol.

Shaving frequency at max setting! :)

Im finding that with these new Gillette Body Razors, you keep the hair off much longer and no skin irritation whatsoever. I am even more impressed than I was before.

Hair trimmers is the way to go. Saves on razors but you don't get a smooth face.

I shave all of my facial hair because there is a lot of gray if I don't.

Shave my Pubic hair. in 2003 I was diagnosed with prostate cancer and had surgery to remove my prostate. I was shaved for that. Removal of prostate left my somewhat incontinent and I have to wear a pad for that. I kept up the shaving as it makes it easier to stay clean. Sorry if that is TMI for some of you but you should know there are lots of different reasons for people doing things.

BTW I also had radiation treatment and hormone therapy and had the cancer come back. Still have prostate cancer and if anyone out there has questions about it or the treatment I will be glad to tell you what I know. just send me a message.

Getting the lines right to begin with was a lot of work doing it myself. Keeping up isn't too bad.
