Will This Be The Year Of The Wet Shaver? Shaving Discussions In Non-Shaving Forums

Listen to this article

The Crowd Grows!

I have been at this a while but it still amazes me to see discussions about shaving in non-shaving forums (not including social link sharing places like Reddit, Facebook, Stumbleupon, etc.).  And it seems that the number and length of the discussions have grown over the past couple of years.  Sometimes the discussion is short-lived and brief but sometimes it becomes an enduring, long-term thread!  Here is a quick survey of some forums with shaving threads.  Will this be the year of the wet shaver?
