straight razor for me , old mug with double duck brand badger hair brush and this shaving soap bar I get at the beauty supply called RK mens bar. anything else and I break out like a punk kid ! :D
That's spectacular :D I've been looking at getting a safety razor because I can't afford the start-up costs of a straight razor, but the modern razors are very expensive to get cartridges for and wasteful, so safety seemed a good balance. The local knife store has some Taylors of Old Bond Street shaving creams which I am curious to try: in particular a lavender scent and a sandalwood scent.

As a shift back to hygiene, does anybody here use an old-style safety razor or a straight razor?

If so, what do you like about it, and what shaving creams and brushes do you use?
I only wetshave and use an old style safety razor,with merkel blades, it's awesome. I believe it's a merker long classic razor about $25 when I bought it.

I use a pretty basic brush, a $40 volfix badger brush, and I've got three kinds of shave cream, a lavender scent "art of shaving" tube that requires a LOT of work to create a lather (I like the scent but never use it because its crap to try and use, but creates good lather if you work at it for four or five minutes) A cheapo ($2) cake of shave soap I found randomly and unexpectedly at CVS or some such store, that's lasted two years and all it requires is a few swirls and then applying vigoroously to the face creates all the needed foam and the application raises the hairs resulting in a smoother shave as well as fewer ingrown hairs/razor burn (which I get from modern razors) and a rarely used can of barbasol if I am in an emergency rush. I use JASON aftershave, which is the only aftershave I've ever liked. And not using aftershave results in a noticeably less happy post shave razorburn/ingrown.

I bought my brush and razor, blades and brush stand and razor stand all from classicshaving.com

Guys (and girls) of the internet, I have a question. My girlfriend will be going travelling across Eastern Europe shortly and in preparation she is getting a bikini wax, a haircut, and is running the pill together to avoid getting her period.

Is this not unequivocal evidence that she plans to be screwing every greasy Eastern European she comes across? I think it must be. I'm gonna beat her to the punch and screw every vagina I see in New York.

I'd be more worried if it were Italy. but either way, I think the opening ten minutes of Y Tu Mama Tambien still applies.

I think it probably means she's gonna spend a ton of time at the beach. Crazy, I know. But that's my suspicion. :D

Dude, if you've ever tried to find a pharmacy in the middle of fucking Athens in the middle of their biggest fucking festival all year, the festival during which only 6 pharmacies are open in the entire fucking city of 5 million people - well, you'd not be asking that question.

And while bikini waxes aren't my thing, I do make a lot of effort to travel well-groomed. It's more comfortable, for one thing.

I got myself a Merkur safety razor yesterday! I'm just getting the feel for it, but I quite like it and I love how little waste is involved with its use (blades instead of plastic and metal cartridges, less packaging, etc.) :D

I actually don't think it's overly painful (and my threshold is not high). Then again, they always liquor me up first, so perhaps I'm too far gone to care.

Back to the whole issue regarding the toilet seat:

D and I have entered what is hopefully the fourth and final phase of our issues with this.

Phase 1: D leaves toilet seat up pretty constantly. K finds this annoying, but doesn't really say much because she figures, either way, one person will be inconvenienced, so whatever.

Phase 2: Cat puke is everywhere in the apartment. Don't know which cat it is, or if it's both, but it's everwhere. One day, D walks in the bathroom to see Reece drinking toilet water. He has sudden revelation regarding the cat puke, and both parties firmly commit to closing the toilet lid entirely. K prefers this, as it keeps the cats healthier (puking issues cleared up nearly immediately) and it means that both parties are similarly inconvenienced.

Phase 3: Tara starts peeing on K's beautiful shower curtain that she loves, loves, loves. (Fortunately, washing it with vinegar took out the smell.) K and D declare the bathroom a kitty-cat free zone unless the cats are under direct human supervision. Both continue closing the toilet lid out of habit for a long time. Eventually, D starts getting careless about this as the cats drinking toilet water is no longer an issue. D starts leaving toilet seat up again on occasion. Not consistently, mind you, which means K does not develop a habit of putting it back down.

Phase 4: K wakes up one night at 3 AM needing to pee. K's glasses are not on the nightstand, and she is not going to put in her contacts to go to the bathroom as she's trying to keep herself in that semi-entranced state that will make it easier for her to fall back to sleep. Note: K is blinder than a bat without corrective lenses, even when fully awake. K walks into the bathroom. Upon sitting, K realizes that, without corrected vision, the toilet with the seat up looks exactly the same as with the seat down. K barely manages to save her self from falling in. This has the unfortunate effect of jolting her out of her half-asleep state. K relays the incident to D. Henceforth, it was mutually declared that the toilet seat would remain down when not in use as a necessary and reasonable accomodation for K's visual disability. And all is well.

Keeping in mind it is probably less than accurate and I shouldn't take it too seriously, I took notes on the Sex and Love tab:

27 :(
35 :(
37 :(

Those got the biggest reactions from me.

Hey little birdie, I'm surprised that you're happy that only 38% said that they were not at all likely to cheat. That number should be higher.

The second category of 38% are "not very likely to cheat". In other words, they still might. Only 38% are "not at all likely".

I happen to think it's shameful that not even half of the respondents have complete confidence in their ability to be faithful, but I suppose it's better to look at it as 76% are at least not very likely to cheat. I guess that's what Alea's happy about.

I was being optimistic and hoping the latter portion of the second answer would trump the former portion.

I was mildly irked with the reasons they associated with a given answer. For example, someone might not cheat on their partner, not because of their morals, but rather because they love and respect their partner. However, the love and respect reason was attached to the possibility of cheating.

The distrust is reserved for men I'm romantically, or fairly certain I'll be romantically, involved with. Lucky them.

Everyone else gets a different type/level of distrust.

Well I messed that up. I could see the sad face for that you. I meant 35, the threesome one.

About the cheating one, thinking and doing are two totally different things. Mind you, I have never actually cheated on a significant other. But I have thought about it. An example: It was a couple years ago. I was dating some one that I was in love with. I was at a party without her. I had some great conversation with a cute, funny, smart, interesting girl. She was definitely in to me and if I were single, it wouldn't have been a second thought. And I thought for a passing moment, "Wow, I could cheat on [insert name] right now and she would never know." It was a thought for a moment and there was never any intention behind it. But it was a thought none the less. I would like to think that this doesn't make me a cheating scumbag.
