Default Shaving Blows

So I want to buy an electric shaver so I shave more often.

I don't know the first thing about them. Any must have features?

Cordless, but I guess they all are now adays. I like the rotary head ones, but I've used others and they are OK too.

Pretty sure you'll see the straight razor crowd show up soon

Why does shaving blow?

For me it's to do with Razor Burn. An electric will only make that MUCH worse.

My bro in law told me the opposite but I was thinking along the same lines as you.

I figured I would give it a try?

ever considered shaving with an old school razor? makes shaving way funner IMHO. tons of them on ebay. and many forums with people like us, except into shaving, abound to learn more about it if interested.

I love the thought of someone being into shaving as much as we are into beer.
