What was your wife’s reaction when you first started shaving your legs? Had you come out to her about your crossdressing before? Or did you hint at it before she know about your crossdressing? Did you blame it on something like swimming or cycling?
For me, my wife for most of our 17 year marriage has known that I don’t like my body hair. I’ve never completely shaved my legs but shaved/naired my upper legs, thighs, rear and back. She’ll touch me at night in bed and be like “Oh your back is smooth, you shaved??” Not in a mean way but she’ll make comments about liking my masculine body hair, although many times she’ll make comments about my back hair getting long and making a grossed out face. I felt like if I shaved she’d question my masculinity but if I had long hair she’d be kinda turned off. This was definitely something embarrassing to bring up to her although we did eventually talk and she could understand how I felt about both of those statements. She then bought me Nair when I’d ask but I still made it seem like I wouldn’t go crazy. I felt like it’d never be something she’d welcome but also wouldn’t totally disapprove of.
So this past week or two, my wife had mentioned my dry legs and said to use lotion on them and I mentioned that I wouldn’t want to put lotion on them with my hairy legs. Keep in mind that with me almost 40 years old and wearing skinny jeans my leg hair has seemed to naturally thin out the last couple of years. Definitely not as dark or thick as it was 10 years ago. And my wife has noticed and never said that she disliked it thinning out. So a few days ago I was shaving my bald head, doing a little trimming in the groin area with a guard on. I decided to thin out my leg hair on most of my legs and even clean shaved in portions, afterwards applying lotion.
That night I was laying with my wife in bed before going to sleep talking as we do most nights. She reached over and grabbed my leg and was like “oh your legs are kind of stubbly in parts. Did you shave???” Sounded mean at first. She kind of caught herself after she repeated the question again and I was a little timid and embarrassed in answering, I replied “Well yeah I tried to thin my leg hair to put lotion on my legs like you suggested.” She then touched a little bit more and I told her that I clean shaved a few parts like my feet (something she’s known I’ve done before and not really ever had a problem with).
She then basically questioned a little bit more but not in a mean way. I told her that I didn’t want to embarrass her or the kids but since it was Winter I felt that it wouldn’t hurt to try and that I liked the way that they felt thinned out and even shaved in spots. She was pretty understanding and just said “I’m sorry if I embarrassed you by acting that way at first. I don’t want you to feel that way.” She then went on to tell me how she just didn’t want my prickly legs against her. I think that the impression that she had though is that this wouldn’treally go any further. We went to sleep not cuddled but as she was falling asleep (not sure if she heard) I tried to clear the air by telling her that to avoid having stubbly legs that I almost clean shaved them all that day and that I had thought about nairing them.
We woke up all cuddled up with our legs touching that morning. She reached down and felt my legs briefly. She didn’t bring it up but mentioned that she enjoyed sleeping next to me to keep warm. Then that morning as we were at church service, she lovingly leaned over put her arm on me and whispered in my ear “I love you so much” and then squeezed my thigh. She isn’t typically super affectionate and doesn’t like PDA so this really struck me, especially with the squeeze of my leg. Almost a slight signal about my shaven legs.
Sunday night I stayed up late working on a project for work, she asked if I minded her going to bed before me and that when I came to bed to cuddle with her to keep her warm. I told her I planned to take a shower before bed. That night I took a long shower and shaved my entire legs and got them super smooth. Put some lotion on them, let it soak in a bit then got in bed. I cuddled up next to her, our smooth legs entwined and it felt amazing! It was hard to sleep that night because I kept wanting to be awake to see if she noticed and what her reaction was. Several times in the night she would take her foot or shin and rub it up and down my smooth leg. Just like the panties, I thought “She knows right?” I mean I can tell with my foot rubbing her shin if her legs are stubbly, hairy or the like.
The next night she was away for a few hours with only our teenagers in the house, so I took a bath. I’m sure if my teens heard me drawing a bath they were shocked! I’ve seen my wife do this plenty of times but I got in soaked in the warm water, shaved any grown stubble down, put coconut oil and lotion on them afterwards. I wanted them to be perfectly smooth at night again to test out her thoughts or actions in the night.
I have to admit getting into bed scared me. This was now the fourth night getting into bed with partly or fully shaven legs. I was definitely wondering what she would do. We got into bed talked for a little bit. Our legs against each other, her moving her foot up my leg every so often feeling my smooth and moisturized legs. I surprisingly fell asleep talking to her. I woke up 45 minutes later. I think she had been asleep too but we both kind of stirred said a few things and readjusted our bodies. I lifted my leg up on a body pillow she has making sure that my knee and upper thigh were close to where her hand was resting. Within a few minutes she put her fingers on my knee, thigh and even shin, rubbing softly with her fingers for 20 or 30 seconds. Then she moved a little closer and said goodnight again. So I know she was awake and positive that she consciously felt my smooth legs with her fingers. The way she touched them almost felt like she liked or welcomed the smooth feel!
I sure hope I am reading all of her signals right and that hopefully this is something she enjoys the feel of! But again maybe this is another aspect of a DADT relationship. I have to admit that I am still scared to show off my ‘New’ Legs to my wife. Eek!
Any of you ladies have a similar experience with shaving your legs? It seems like many of you just came right out and boldly asked your wives but are there any here that took these baby steps with some confusing gray areas that I have had?
