Michael Phelps inspired me to shave my whole body.

If you are a man and you have never experienced the fantastic smoothness of a completely shaven body, you are missing out on one of life's great pleasures.

When I watched the Olympics I noticed along with everyone else how fast Michael Phelps was.   But when the cameras zoomed in on his skin, I began to notice something different.  I saw something that we don't often see when looking at male athletes.  This was the first time in my life I noticed how the skin of a world champion looked.  My Sony 60" high definition TV seemed to show every moist and supple pore of Michael's skin.  It was breathtaking. 

After seeing a few of Michael Phelps' races, I began to feel compelled to treat myself to the privilege of hairlessness.  I wondered if I could also exist with such a smooth outer layer.  I spent several hours in the bathroom working on the new me.  I shaved my body from neck to toe.  The exhilaration I felt during the process was indescribable.  Perhaps it is the same feeling a butterfly feels when it climbs out of the crusty old pupa revealing it's beautiful new wings.

I'm not embarrassed to admit I spent the next several hours nude in my apartment celebrating the smooth new me.  I honored and protected my new smoothness by liberally coating my body a quality moisturizing lotion containing organic aloe and vitamin E.  For those slightly dryer areas I applied a touch of sunflower oil.  Wow.  If you could feel my body, I believe you would agree the results have been very rewarding. 

Being a highly successful magazine columnist I have had the opportunity to experience most of life's greatest pleasures.  Unfortunately, many less successful people frankly don't have access to the experiences I have enjoyed.  But take it from me, shaving you entire body will be worth it.  You don't have to be a highly successful magazine columnist to treat yourself in this way.  You may not be able to afford the same cutting-edge skin care products as me you can still experience a thrilling level of smoothness unlike you have ever felt before.

Michael Phelps was my inspiration.  Let me be your inspiration.  Shed the pupa and emerge as a beautiful new butterfly.
