When I came out to my wife about my crossdressing she asked me if I planned to shave my legs. I replied I always wanted to and if you don’t mind ….. she told me lots of guys shave their legs so go for it. I did and never looked back. I keep them shaved all year including during shorts season and no one has ever said a word. Do people notice, probably, but I could care less about what people think.
On the plus side, shaving has a number of benefits … cooler during the summer, easier to apply lotion or sunscreen, it’s cleaner. I’m an avid cyclist so my leg sleeves stay up now. Prior to shaving they used to fall down, UGH! Finally, when I take a tumble, it’s easier to clean up any road rash.
I think it’s nice that your wife talks to you about, touches your legs, and complements you on it. My wife could care less about it.
Did I mention that shaving is addictive. It starts with the legs and quickly expands to other parts of the body.
Enjoy your new found smoothness!
