I've never shaved my legs, no need to. There's very little hair to see nor feel. This is true for all the women in our family. Thank you mom and dad!

Very interesting, y'all.

What do you call the safety blade that, um, (trying to think of a better word, but can't), vibrates? I have the M3 Extreme which uses a AAA battery to essentially vibrate which supposedly helps get a closer shave.

I tend to get some rash when I shave, so I try to avoid it as long as I can. Unfortunately, in law enforcement clean shaven is preferred. I will try different gels, and I'm always game for trying a new razor. Schick has never worked well for me, so I'm a Gillette kinda guy. I do want to try the new Fusion by Gillette.

Oh, I wind up shaving every other day (though that may change to every day soon) when I have to work. If I am not working, not shaving.Over the sink, post shower (after I put my contacts in so I can see what the heck I am doing!).

I have a fog-free mirror in the shower. It helps me not cut myself! There is even a place to hang 2 razors.

Sometimes wet, sometimes dry, usually in the morning, but not always.
"As and where needed"
...but always with disposable safety razors. I tried the kind with the disposable blade only, but the replacement blades seemed rediculo-expensive so I went back to cheapo twin blade disposables.

Very interesting and varied responses...thank you all for your replys!!

now for a followup question. since the majority of you use disposable saftey razors...how many (on average) uses do you get b4 trashing it and grabbing a fresh razor?

A couple three per razor head. Maybe 4, but it gets pretty rough at that point.
