Ah, a day I’ll never forget…the very first swipe took off a 2” slice of my shin. Momma told me the same thing.
Next time try it with some shaving cream!
Experience counts. Find a nice boy to do it for you.
I guess there is some benefit from going Euro!
Next time try to be easier, feather light.
My dad insisted that I start shaving at 16 – very much against my will. I kept it up for over 20 with no major nicks – then came permanent, chronic vertigo. I tried to shave ONCE after that.
It left a 3 inch scar that finally faded after 20 years.
Why do women shave, anyway? Aside from pushy parents, of course.
Lots of soap and easy and slow and patience. Something I was fine with but my sister not so much so she looked like that also.
I just like how it feels once done. Of course come November I’m going to have one leg undone for a while… knee replacement :(
Don’t bother with it – it’s not worth it and serves no apparent purpose.

Funny, I didn’t have any problems the first time I shaved, either with an electric or a blade (went to blades when I joined the Army). I still use a blade, occasionally get a nick, but it’s rare. And it’s been over 50 years since I went to blades. I prefer the closer shave. Did try going back to an electric after I retired, but just wasn’t satisfied.
It was a pretty close shave, but, Holly missed it by just a hair.
Soak in a tub for 20 minutes. Instead of soap use conditioner, it’s better for the skin. And rinse the blade after every stroke. And other stuff the Mrs reminded me of when she had me take care of her legs.
Too bad women should remove the hair completely if they don’t like normal hair on their bodies. I’d like to do that to my face.
