So why can't you shave in a sauna?

I was in the gym and like every other sauna i've been in a sign was up 'No shaving in the sauna'.
But why not? Aside from i wouldn't want to watch someone shaving.
Dare not google it, who knows what it'll return Wink

At a guess the reason is that the effect of a sauna is to dilate the blood vessels and nicking them with a razor could be rather messy - not to mention the risk of getting Aids or something equally nasty from coming into contact with contaminated blood.

Ah OK, thanks Oldjim. Makes sense.

Not forgetting that it would be fairly unattractive to have a sauna with shaving foam/stubble on the floor too.
