I'm a lefty and use my left hand/leg to do almost every activity there is out there. oddly enough, when I'm batting in baseball and playing hockey, I play as if I'm a righty.

when you're shaving, do you switch hands when you move to the different sides of your face & neck? when I'm shaving, I use my left hand throughout the entire shaving process. I tried using my right hand a few times when I was shaving the right side of my face, but it just isn't natural AT ALL for me.

No. I'm a lefty, too, and I've never felt the need to switch hands while shaving.

Right handed person here. If I'm using a DE then I use my left hand for left cheek and right for everything else, if a shavette then it's only my right. Go figure...

I am right handed too. When I use DEs or SEs I rarely switch hands and usually use my right hand all throughout. When I shave with straights I alternate hands:
WTG-right hand on the right side and left hand on the left;
XTG-right hand in the left side and left on the tight;
ATG-neck - right hand on the right side and left on the left; ATG - right hand on the left side and left on the right.

I am also a lefty and never switch. I am one of those bat/golf/shoot righties too.

Dominant right handed. With a DE, I use my right hand 100%. With a straight, I switch between hands.

One hand with DE, two with a straight razor. I never could figure out how the mechanics would work to shave with one hand with a straight.

Right hand only for me. Pretty sure I'd do some damage if I tried using my left hand!

Righty here and I have never tried using my left hand. Seems counterintuitive.

See, I'm the exact opposite. I'm a righty, but I bat, putt, etc as a lefty. Play guitar right handed though.

I do switch, depending on the razor. Some I can get the correct angle with my right hand, no problem. Others I have to swap up.
