Obviously its starting to get a little warmer now, and nearly time to break out the shorts. What are your feelings on whether to shave legs or not?

That many of us are already obliged to frustrate nature's wishes to satisfy the aesthetic preferences of our partners is reason enough to consider the enlargement of this mandate a depilation too far.

Although it's true that most Tour de France winners shave and manage to put in quite respectable times, you have to ask yourself how much faster they could go if they didn't traumatise their largest organ. (That would be their skin.) If Samson taught us anything, it's that hair is strength.


Samson in better times. After his haircut even LOLcats made him whimper like a little girl.

On the other hand, a clean-jowled James Bond shaved the world, or at least face, on numerous occasions.
