On shaving.......

I don't know if it's some Freudian thing about fresh starts or what, but in the last three months I have:

(1) shaved off my goat that I have had for a couple of years
(2) shaved off the mustache I have had for longer than I can remember
(3) started shaving my "happy fun zone" after a couple of years of not doing so.

I'm real clear on the whole face shaving process (I hate it, but I'm clear on it), but have always struggled with the best way to shave down lower.

Clearly, there's an area where shaving makes sense, but the question is Where to stop? Unlese you make your livelihood swimming laps or riding the backroads of France, shaving your legs is more than I think most men would do. Yet the "halo effect" sort of looks odd. So......

Is the goal simply to provide a nice, smooth playground, or do esthetics play a part in the decision?

Shaving your "happy fun zone," accomplishes several things. It does provide a "nice, smooth playground," but it also eliminates that pesky hair that can get in the way or stuck in your throat or mouth at a very in opportune time. If the hair is long, getting it pulled can be very uncomfortable and bring an otherwise fun time to a screeching halt.

If you think the halo effect looks odd, just keep it nicely trimmed and you can make almost everyone happy. Either way works for me.

Don't waste your time on a man who is isn't willing to waste his time on you.

Thanks for the advice. I did reach an acceptable trim level that seems to work well.

BTW - very classy holding that pinky "just so"
