I'm 22 years old, I live in the USA, and I do not shave my legs, simply because I do not see the need. I love the nice, smooth feeling of my skin (man or woman, who doesn't??), but it only lasts a few hours before the days of stubble begin. I could never shave every night because it would irritate my skin. Furthermore, I never enjoyed shaving my legs. While we were dating, my husband politely tried to convince me to stop shaving a few times. Stopping never really crossed my mind, thanks to the society in which I was brought up. I did convince him to stop shaving his face off every other day (trust me, his skin looked irritated enough for that sentence to be viable), so now he keeps a nice, trim beard. We both shave our underarms, due to body odor, and I don't like the feeling of hairy underarms. How do these shaving rituals translate into other cultures?
