teaching an old bitch new tricks

In the past, I used an electric razor to shave my underarms. Afterwords, it usually took two or three days for my armpits to recover before I could use a deodorant that did not burn my pits.

Yesterday, I used Veet to depilate my legs, arms, and breasts in order to be as hairless as possible for my outing en femme tomorrow.

I checked my armpits and they needed attention, too. Instead of using an electric razor, I applied shaving cream on my armpit hair and used a Gillette Fusion razor to remove the hair. Afterwords, my armpits were hairless and I was able to use a deodorant without any ill effects.

Tomorrow, I do outreach at two Human Sexuality classes at Southern Connecticut State University in New Haven.

The weather is supposed to be in the mid-70s, so I plan to wear a Victoria's Secret dress I bought on sale during the winter, but have not worn yet.

If it was much warmer, I would have to wear something lighter, so I am glad the weather is cooperating and I will be able to wear the outfit I put together to go with the dress.

  1. I have used the creams to remove hair with great success. I cannot stand the sight or feel of any hair on my body except for my head and my little V-shaped patch.

    What I do is put the cream on all over, wait the required time, then step in the shower and shave that off. You get a smooth feel that last for days!

    Oh to be as young and carefree as the girl in the picture....and to be able to be a girl.

    P.S. Her outfit and hair are cute, too!

  3. Guys Who Wish They Were Girls --- I use creams too (Veet and Nair), but there are certain areas of my body (like my armpits and shoulders) that I must avoid, otherwise, they get very irritated from the creams.

  4. I shave my whole body once a week in a nice bubble bath. I call it my girl time. I not only shave with a razer, but I repaint my toe nails after I give myself a peticure. I have gotten very good over the years and can shave within 1 hour while I soak and relax.

  5. I love the clean feeling after using a Gillette Fusion on my armpits! (what a gross term!)
