    i wax. and the place i go to they just do the whole leg and bikini.
    in winter, when i'm too lazy to get waxed as often as i should i sometimes shave my leg up to the knee but only because i don't want hairs poking out of my tights.

    All the way to my crotch. Just below my butt.

    *cries to self* My hair is so dark and thick all the way up my legs, I have no choice. Actually, it's all or nothing. Shaving is so time-consuming (try 45min-1 hr. in the shower), doesn't yield good results (can still see the dark follicle dots all over my legs) and grows back so quickly (less than 24 hours) and painfully, that I often don't shave at all for long periods of time. This makes it softer, actually after a while...It's ick, I know, but I feel it's such a waste of time for crap results.

    Pants are a just way of life for me.

    wax is your friend, beeyotch! i have super-sensitive skin and shaving really irritates it so waxing is just better on the skin because you just do it once a month. the hair also gets thinner with over time. it will hurt like a mofo the first few times then you'll get used to it, with the added bonus of weeks of hairlessness.

    I shave all the way up. I have to--I'm very fair and my body hair is black, which is funny because I have blonde hair on my head. Crazy.

    Nope, waxing is not my friend. Gives me painful ingrowns that take weeks (or tweezers) to make it through the skin, but right under the surface skin so you can still see it. It doesn't even last that long for me, maybe 7-10 days. I'm pretty sure I have Arabic or Middle Eastern ancestry, or a hormonal imbalance problem or both. But either way, I'm screwed in this area.

    And completely jealous of people like Msdebagain. They need to make huge strides in genetics and clone whatever gene is responsible for this, so I can wear shorts more often and summers don't suck as much.

    ^ I feel you Beeyotch! I have the same problem! I shave my legs almost every day even if I'm not planning to wear shorts/skirts because if I leave it too long it takes hours. Sometimes I have to throw out my razor blade and use a new one in the middle of it. It is really that bad!

    I want to get laser hair removal, but I don't feel convinced that it's safe.

    I use hair removal cream over my entire leg. I'm the same as wheelbarrow and beeyotch, it's such a pain in the ass. My life would be so much easier without body hair! I could cope with just head hair and eyebrows!

    Oh and eyelashes.
    I smile because I have no idea what's going on

    I've got italian in me and french (frickin sucks that i got the italian hair when the french are hairless!) I've never had alot of body hair but lately i have more than usual. I'm only 20 so it could just be that i'm still developing (i started late) and the genes are kicking in more but I'm concerned that an increased growth in body hair is a sign of a medical problem. Is that possible?
