Newbie Reported-Already facing CHALLENGE

So as a newbie, I haven’t got any bike maintenance issue so far, but i do have a maintenance issue regarding my body components.

Long story short, I've decided to shave my legs to give me a pro-like identity (please don’t judge me i know I'm hypercritical)

The problem is, I’d like to know how likely would you guys shaving your legs for a long-term hair reduction purpose

Say on the scale from 1-7 (1 being extremely unlikely, and 7 being extremely likely)

    The above may be fact, or fiction, I may be serious, I may be jesting.
    I am not sure. You have no chance.

    Veet. Everywhere. Even bits that you don't think have hair.

    It makes you sleek and eel like and chicks dig sleek.

    And after you have applied it go and read the comments on Amazon.

    If you are going to shave, make sure you don't use shaving foam or creme or soap.
    In hospitals, they use only talcum powder when shaving areas for operations - give it a go.

    they are all, literally,bollox.

    so long as you don't leave it on your little boy for three weks you'll be fine.

    ladies use it on their bits and, although i'm not a gyno, I suspect there is more potential for incorrect application there.

    slap it on.
    leave 10 mins
    shower off

    I used to shave my back, being a hirsute Italian... but then I developed a massive cist on a shoulder, straight after shaving... it grew the size of an apricot before the NHS finally agreed to surgically remove it in 2014.
    Since then, I haven't shaved, I shorten instead... if you use a 1-2 mm setting on a trimmer, you can get a decent PRO look, without risking the above.

    Interestingly, my back is not as hairy anymore... one of the benefits of andropause, I suppose
