Do any of you ladies hate the way your pants feel (all fabrics, or specific fabrics) against your shaven legs?

On another forum that I go on, I have learned that most NT young women (ages 16-24) shave their legs no matter what! I can understand wanting to shave one's legs when wearing shorts, dresses, skirts, etc., and while being physically intimate with another person, but shaving all the time is not appealing to me at all, especially when it's chilly or cold, because then I'm always wearing pants.

I wouldn't say that it's a big issue for me, but if I can avoid it, I definitely will.

I can't wear pants, so shave my legs all the time. I was being made fun of for not shaving my legs at 12 years old... so that's when I started doing that, but not consistently for awhile. Now I like smooth legs.

i hate shaving my legs! It just feels so unatural somehow... And i don't get what guys have against women's body hair, even when it's thick it's very soft. Not at all like men's body hair

I'm quite lucky that I don't have much body hair so I can without shaving my legs and it isn't obvious. I do sometimes shave them if I'm going out to a party but I really like the feeling of fabric against my skin. Although I also really love the sensation of things gently touching my skin, always have.

Body hair bothers me, alot. I shave no matter what, it is a sensory issue for me not to shave.

ditto. i hate the smooth feeling against pants, but i have started shaving regularly for my husband (we have some input into each other's shaving habits).

I can't stand the way certain fabrics feel on my legs if I haven't shaved in a while. I love how my legs feel after I just shaved them. ^_^

I like the feeling of shaved legs sometimes, and sometimes I hate it. It is as different of reaction as different as the days of the week.

Shaving my legs doesn't bother me, but I agree it makes no sense for it to be such a strongly-entrenched social norm. We'd probably get less negative reaction from people being an ax murderer than if we didn't shave our legs.

No, I don't like the feel of not having shaved in a few days. I like the feel of freshly-shaven legs, so soft and smooth.

Fortunately, I have very weak hair, so I can shave it once a month. I don't feel any special sensation, doesn't matter if I have smooth legs or not.

Nope I shave everyday. They have to be smooth or I feel like showering was pointless.

Well... shaving your legs is utterly unnatural... so don't worry about feeling that way. It's only in the last few hundred years or so that Western women have pandered to paedophile tastes and tried to make themselves hairless anyway.

Yuck, I hate the weird way my skin feels against fabrics when I shave my legs!

hair on my legs hurts my skin, but I hate shaving so a while back I invested in laser hair removal. it was the best investment ever because now my legs don't hurt and I never think about them.

I have the same sensory issues with any hair on my body with an irregular root. I have to pluck it out or I go crazy from the irritation. sometimes it's downright painful when they're growing in.
