I don't. Well, I didn't! I've decided I better had, before I start to trip over it .

not usually, but may start due to new aquanatal class.... you're up very late levanna!

You should buy some of that new Johnsons cream that minimises hair growth. My friend says it's very good. I'm definatley trying it, I hate shaving my legs!

Problem with the cream is that you have to keep remembering to put it on! I start off with good intentions but then find that I've forgotten for 5 days and then wonder if it's worth continuing.

I tend to only do it when I'm likely to expose my legs like going swimming ! Whats the cream called ?

Piffle Tue 11-Jan-05 09:24:25

no I grow mine and knit for extra warmth.
I did shave when going into hospital though.
That really made my Dh think I was off to try and pull and doctor!!!

I think it's just called Johnsons hair minimising cream. There is an advert on the tv at the moment for it.

Yes because I go swimming twice a week.

(Well I say swimming but don't actually get chance to swim, just take kids to parent and child class and DS to swimming lesson).

But only do a quick job in winter.

Yes. Its quicker getting legs dry in the mornings! (well, every second counts sometimes)

nerdgirl Tue 11-Jan-05 09:44:06

Yes. Because I still like to have sex during the Winter!!

usually get mine waxed in Jan for winter sun holiday, that lasts a while, then I shave them if they look too yetiish

handlemecarefully Tue 11-Jan-05 09:53:33

Only for swimming. I have sex during winter too, but expect dh to put up with it!

motherinferior Tue 11-Jan-05 09:54:41

I do.

Levanna Tue 11-Jan-05 12:17:42

I can't remember the last time shaving my legs was done for DH's benefit....if ever!

Ok, what about arm pits? (The more it snows, the more it grows) only joking, I can't have unshaved armpits, yeuck!

I'm with bensmum3 - only if they're going to be exposed to the public.

Sex, nerdgirl, what's that ? (my excuse is that we have a 6mo in our bed every night)

morningpaper Tue 11-Jan-05 12:48:15

We are trying for no. 2 so I'm shaved, plucked, moisturised and scrubbed up to lure DH into bed every night....

beansprout Tue 11-Jan-05 12:50:47

Lord no - it keeps me warm!

weightwatchingwaterwitch Tue 11-Jan-05 12:51:21

I do too.

Bozza Tue 11-Jan-05 12:51:50

Yes could never leave pits whatever the time of year, state of sex life etc.

handlemecarefully Tue 11-Jan-05 12:52:05

Actually (whispers...) I hardly ever do my armpits. Why are people so revulsed by that?

noddyholder Tue 11-Jan-05 12:53:51

when i think they start to look gross I give them a quick scrape!Not as thorough as in summer though

handlemecarefully Tue 11-Jan-05 12:57:15

Ummmm - maybe that's why some women look at me in appalled fascination when in changing room at the gym

handlemecarefully Tue 11-Jan-05 13:52:28

Ha Ha ! people are so disgusted by me not doing my pits that its killed this thread
