    I like the throw aways with two blades. I don't want any swivel action either, my wrist has a swivel action.

    i buy the braun shavers for my brothers.

    i actually like shaving people's faces.
    love, love art of shaving. smells so
    good, i just want to get my lipstick
    all over their face.



    every normal man must be tempted, at times,
    to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag,
    and begin slitting throats.

Now I get cheap disposables from the dollar store for a fraction of the cost. I'd rather not have to throw away that much plastic. You would think interchangeable blades would be cheaper than a disposable. I was thinking about going to safety razors. You can get a box of blades for next to nothing at a hardware/home improvement store. I think I use blade way longer than the avg guy too. One lasts me at least a month, before it starts to irritate too much.

    I'll never understand people who throw away money on some of these generic items. I have heard it is only in America that these razors cost so much too. I see no difference shaving with a $.12 razor vs a $4 blade replacement and I have sensitive skin. Hot water and shaving cream make all the difference.

    I don't think I'd like someone else shaving my face. I was invited to go to a bachelor thing at a barber shop the morning of a wedding I photographed. I ended up not going and all the guys that went said it was not a pleasurable experience (and not cheap).

    One nice thing about not working, is I don't have to shave every day, but I don't like facial hair much so it has to go after a few days. I only let it grow out when I go camping. Cold water shaving sucks.
    Which is why I used to use an electric razor. Quick, simple, and not costly in the long run especially when your facial hair doesn't grow too fast.

    Not sure why I started buying the manual ones, I cringed when i saw a 4 pack of razor head replacements went around $20 >.<.

    Some disposables must be better than others, because whenever I've used them, they always leave like an eighth inch of stubble on my face...

    I had mentioned this above, but hadn't tested it out. For the past two weeks I've been using the same disposable blade. After use I submerge it in rubbing alcohol then let it dry. The blade is as sharp as the first time I used it.

    I only shave if I'm going to be wearing a dress or something with out sleeves or there's the possibility of sex. rest of the time I don't bother because it's hidden from the world, and what they don't know can't hurt them.
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so

    This is pretty old, but I figured I'd answer.

    I don't mind shaving, it isn't really something I like to do, but it isn't torture either. I shave once a day, I wish I could grow facial hair, but it just looks wrong when I try. My beard is pretty full when I let it grow out, but I have a scar on one side that leaves a bald patch on the side of my chin, and my mustache is really sad and boyish. Also, I could never shave with a two blade disposable :O they are not kind to my face. I use Gillette Fusion.
