Thanks Carlos! You are fast! Haha! You actually answered before I put the poll in place, would you mind entering your choice so it's counted?

I answered "Other...", because I don't always remember and/or I am not consistent in how I go about it.
However I do notice that when I remember to use my free hand to stretch the skin (along with adjusting neck/head angle) the hair is cut closer AND I seem to get less irritation/nicks.

Voted. Mainly just do mine by facial expressions with my DE's. When I was using straights I would use my free hand.

I checked "other."  I always stretch my skin when shaving with a straight, but never do when using a DE.

I stretch the skin up for side burns, cheeks, and jawbone then stretch down when shaving my neck. I've found stretching in the opposite way of hair growth is optimal for achieving BBS.

I only need to, by hand, stretch one area on the right side of my jawline. Everything else works just by looking this way or that.

I think that the best bbs is obtainable stretching both ways. What i mean is this: if you are going atg, first you stretch in that same direction, followed by another atg pass stretching in the opposite direction. :-)

Always! I primarily shave with a straight so when I picked up a DE it was natural to stretch my skin. I think it is key to avoiding nicks and irritation.

Never!  Better shave with less irritation if I don't stretch my skin.  Think we've had a thread or two on this over the years (slack skin shaving).

I just make funny faces.  Nothing close to real stretching.  Tongue

When I first used a DE...nope.
Now when I use my DE...yep (I only have a Futur and I learned real quick with ATG it helped A LOT with this razor)
When I use a straight...YEP.  The first couple of times I forgot and payed for it around my cheek hollows.  After that it's second nature.

The older I get, the more folds, the more it is necessary

When and where necessary, always. This is the key to BBS, imo.
