Canadians’ shaving behavior revealed in new survey
A recent survey is providing new insights into the shaving behavior of Canadian men and women.
Commissioned by razor company Dollar Shave Club, the survey asked 1,500 Canadians, sourced from the Angus Reid Forum, questions about their shaving habits, including how they prepare for meetings. date and whether they borrow their partner’s tongue without asking.
The survey involved both British and French Canadians, with responses collected between July 18 and 20.
Most respondents, or 53%, said they were “more likely to shave below their waist before a date if they thought they might get lucky,” according to a press release.
Nearly a quarter of respondents said they wouldn’t shave before dating “to avoid making a decision they might later regret.”
Forty-four percent of women said they would be upset if they found out their partner was using a razor, compared with 38 percent of men.
But women were also 32% more likely to say they had used a partner’s razor without asking, compared with 20% for men.
Nearly three in 10 men reported using their partner’s razor to brush their hair, with 19% using the razor for the face, 10% for the scrotum and 7% for the neck.
The survey also found that more than one in four Canadian men use the same razor for their face and pubic hair. 71% said they had left a scar on their face when shaving, while 44% said they had cut the skin under their feet.
One in five men also said they had been told by a partner that growing a beard would be a “sabotage”, the statement said.
As for women, 26% said they were so confident about shaving their bikini area that they could do it “with their eyes closed”.
However, 51% also said they had cut their bikini line when shaving.
Fifty-nine percent of women reported having a partner who didn’t clean the sink after shaving.
Men were also 51% more likely to think waxing was scarier than cutting themselves while shaving, compared with 42% of women.
