As a gent I would hazard a guess shaving their legs? Or their bikini line shaved? Am I right ladies? Or am I far off the mark. Mind you some ladies wax their legs and that is torture! I could never go through a waxing. I hate shaving but find shaving in the shower reduces razor burn providing there's a mirror LOL!

Spot on Wolfie but I do know some men that shave their legs (cyclists) apparently it helps with the aerodynamics when racing. Ellie :D

It gotta be doing the hair. Most women fancy long and beautiful hair and even men like them with it but hardly could they imagine the pains one goes through to get the lustrous mane.

Daily woman having to shave their legs, but the equivelant torture would be a womans menstrual cycle, ok so its only once a month, but could you imagine a guy having to experience that one. Pros and cons for both sexes I suppose. Ellie :D

Yep. I agree with you. Shaving is a pain, but at least you get to feel clean and smooth. But to spend the best part of a week a month with all that menstruation palaver. At least we get a choice about whether to shave or not.

It has to be having a monthly period. For some women it isn't so bad, just an inconvienence. For others, they even have to miss school or work. I'm not kidding! Having a period messes with your moods, gives cramps and back pain, that is way worse than having to shave every day.

I have this in my mind when I raised the discussion.I know how difficult it is for the ladies.I think that the ladies can vent out a little here.

Combing long hair daily! That's a pain...and for us even washing it...because Keralites wash their hair everyday! Then there's also keeping the eyebrows in shape...not as bad as your shaving but it still needs looking into regularly.

I am lucky because I don't need to shave so I don't have to endure the torture. I use my electric razor on setting #1 to give a slight stubble. HOWEVER... When I do shave 1. I use shaving soap (it lasts forever, is extremely cheap, and in my opinion is the best thing to use for the face) and a shaving brush (yeap, they are really hard to find) 2. I use a modern razor (three or four blades) 3. I use HOT HOT HOT water 4. There is a pattern best to use... down, side, up. Yes shave three times. 5. Wash face with COLD COLD COLD water to close the pores 6. Use a NON-ALCHAHOLIC moisturizer (Nivea for men is my fav) This sounds like a lot of steps but can be done rather quickly and there is little to no pain. So when all that is done when it comes to women having to shave their legs and well................. I'll take my face anyday. Thanks for the great question. Zelo

anything really buddy... shaving our legs , underarms, either shaving is horrible or brazillians hurt, lips, eyebrows, arms sometimes, and thats only the little of it its so much harder for women and especially to look good men ...most of you either look good or u dont.. if u dont dont even try to look good cuz u just dont ur better off just working on your personality or money for some women. women ...women have such a higher responsibility but they have more potenital (sorry men) some women are butt a$$ ugly but they can put that makeup on just right and be gorgeous i dunno ..but women have it harder defiantely!

I think I would go with ambiepam above. Problems concerning the menstrual periods give a tough time to most women, from what I have heard and read all my life. Unlike Shaving, these problems are directly related to health and need to be attended to immediately. For men - frequency more intensity (of torture) less - as in shaving. Whereas for women - frequency less but intensity higher.
