Re: Shaving legs onboard?

Sounds like the usual urban myth, unless it was taken from Fools Rush In forum. Pretty much all depilatories make it Real Damn Clear on the label, that they are not supposed to be used anywhere near sensitive places.

The cosmic justice in this, is that anyone fool enough to skip those directions, will pretty much ensure they aren't going to be passing on their genes for at least a couple of hours also. (VBG)

After having been told my danglies looked like an elderly rastafarian I decided to take the plunge and buy some of this as previous shaving attempts had only been mildly succesful and I nearly put my back out trying to reach the more difficult bits. Being a bit of a romantic I thought I would do the deed on the missus's birthday as a bit of a treat.

I ordered it well in advance and working in the North sea I considerd myself a bit above some of the characters writing the previous reviews and wrote them off as soft office types...oh my fellow sufferers how wrong I was. I waited until the other half was tucked up in bed and after giving some vague hints about a special surprise I went down to the bathroom. Initially all went well and I applied the gel and stood waiting for something to happen. I didn't have long to wait.

At first there was a gentle warmth which in a matter of seconds was replaced by an intense burning and a feeling I can only describe as like being given a barbed wire wedgie by two people intent on hitting the ceiling with my head. Religion hadn't featured much in my life until that night but I suddenly became willing to convert to any religion to stop the violent burning around the turd tunnel and what seemed like the destruction of the meat and two veg. Struggling to not bite through my bottom lip I tried to wash the gel of in the sink and only succeeded in blocking the plughole with a mat of hair. Through the haze of tears I struggled out of the bathroom across the hall into the kitchen by this time walking was not really possible and I crawled the final yard to the fridge in the hope of some form of cold relief. I yanked the freezer drawer out and found a tub of ice cream, tore the lid of and positioned it under me. The relief was fantastic but only temporary as it melted fairly quickly and the fiery stabbing soon returned .

Due to the shape of the ice cream tub I hadn't managed to give the starfish any treatment and I groped around in the draw for something else as I was sure my vision was going to fail fairly soon.I grabbed a bag of what I later found out was frozen sprouts and tore it open trying to be quiet as I did so.I took a handful of them and tried in vain to clench some between the cheeks of my arse. This was not doing the trick as some of the gel had found it's way up the chutney channel and it felt like the space shuttle was running it's engines behind me.
This was probably and hopefully the only time in my life I was going to wish there was a gay snowman in the kitchen which should give you some idea of the depths I was willing to sink to in order to ease the pain. The only solution my pain crazed mind could come up with was to gently ease one of the sprouts where no veg had gone before.

Unfortunately, alerted by the strange grunts coming from the kitchen the other half chose that moment to come and investigate and was greeted by the sight of me, arse in the air, strawberry ice cream dripping from my bell end pushing a sprout up my arse while muttering..." Ooooh that feels good ". Understandably this was a shock to her and she let out a scream and as I hadn't heard her come in it caused an involutary spasm of shock in myself which resulted in the sprout being ejected at quite some speed in her direction. I can understand that having a sprout farted against your leg at 11 at night in the kitchen probably wasn't the special surprise she was expecting and having to explain to the kids the next day what the strange hollow in the ice cream was didn't improve my status...So to sum it up Veet removes hair, dignity and self respect...

Holy Moses and the burning bush Batman!!!!

I am oh so glad I am not in an office where anyone could have heard me snorting and laughing as I read this tale of woe and misery...oh BTW this is just one more reason to have a watermaker on board LOL.

Re: Shaving legs onboard?

When I'm shaving my legs on board I go in the cockpit in a swimsuit and use the shower head to get my leg just a little bit wet. Then I lather it up (I don't even use shaving cream, just shampoo or conditioner) and while extending my leg across to the other side of the cockpit, shave like normal. To clean my razor after every few swipes I keep a small bowl of fresh water next to me and just dunk it in there a few times. When the leg has been fully shaved I dribble a little water on it from my shower head and wipe clean.

Go with the electric razor. Small draw from the battery and no water usage! Keep the wax on board though girls, good to threaten the men with when they misbehave!

Heating wax on a stove leaves one to do the goldilocks maneuver. Too cool? Too hot? My partner had a memorable Bikini wax on the way to the Bangkok airport. Fortunately her ability to suffer pain is greater than mine.

"Reading is fundamental."

When the label says "do not use on" there's often a reason.

But I bet you could have some fun pranking in a locker room, putting that stuff in deodorant bottles. (VBG)

It's the long hairs that wind on impeller shafts of pumps. Short shaved hairs from legs, pits, and face won't do anything.
