    I hate having hairy legs, so I shave every once in a while. I love the smooth skin, but I hate the stubble, irritation, and cuts I get when shaving. I think the best alternative for me would be trimming the hair with an electric razor or something. Any advice on this? I would like to trim the hair so that it looks natural and not like I shaved or anything. Anybody suggest any electric razors or any other alternatives?

    A Norelco Body Groom is an excellent choice as well.

    Yeah, I just bought one last month, basically an updated male version of a woman's body shaver. Biggest difference is the Norelco also has 3 comb attachments so you can just trim, as well as shave. And you can use it dry or in the shower wet.

    The instructions say you can shave or trim the genital area, which I've done, and their web site happily brags about men gaining an "extra inch" that way. Norelco runs TV ads in other countries that come right out and say just that.

    But we Americans must be too prudish. Even the boxed instructions don't even mentioned what parts of the groin area an be shaved, but my cock & balls have done OK so far. Before that I was using a woman's Gillette Venus shaver.

    Norelco has released a new, updated version of the Body Groom also. It's about $10 more but it's TOTALLY worth it. It has two trimmer heads, a traditional trimmer style with combs and the original BodyGroom one. The holes on the foil of the shaver are also slightly bigger. It used to to take me about 30 minutes to completely trim my chest, pits, and groin. Then going back in and shaving the scrotum and area on my lower abs. With this new one, I was done in about 20. The shaver is so much better than the last model.

    I'll look into this Norelco Body Groom, but does it last long? I hear a lot of electric razors don't last long. I've let the hair on my legs grow out a lot, so will it hurt the razor?

    It lasts about as long as a manual razor shave. Couple of days. So it's not the longest lasting, but touch ups only take a few minutes.

    I use the Number 1 guard, and I can make it a week, sometimes two. And I'm a hair machine.

    My BodyGroom manual says the charge lasts 58 minutes. I only use it about once a week for about 10 minutes. Norelco rotary razors last well, my last for 5 years before I got my latest, and then only to have the latest features. The old one still works.

    I also have a Norelco beard trimmer and it's held up well, too. But I haven't had the BodyGroom long enough to know if it will be as good as the other products.
