Brazillian or Bikini....That IS the Question

Or Not at All....

My Real Life Sister over at The Phrase Working Mother is Redundant would appreciate this conversation....as it is a debate we've had a many times over the years....with even our supportive and loving husbands pitching in their two cents...(which in this economy is now worth a whopping 1 1/2 cent)


To Wax.....Down There.....Or Not To Wax....Down There......


So recently....during one of my weekly Mommy Getaways.....where a fellow mommy and good friend....actually get 2 hours of being a non-mommy.....and for once...even our topic of discussion was not focused on play groups...aqua tots....and sleeping patterns.....

As we were sitting over our lattes my ever so news conscious friend brought up the fact that NJ wants to put a lifetime ban on any waxing of the nether regions.....as there have been cases in the past of women and men getting infections after their procedure...

Now, I think the ban is how to put it delicately....Ridiculous....as you can possibly get an infection from getting a pedicure....(and I think our local Action news won an award on that story....

If you want to go and pay to get hair ripped out of one of the most sensitive areas of your body...it's your prerogative...I think we all take chances...even getting fake tans...or hair bleaching....If you've ever seen even one episode of Judge Mathis....you know some of the crazy stories that come out of Cosmetology gone bad....

But I digress....so as conversations are like rivers...and meander...and change......the topic moved on to whether do we....or would we ever venture to get our (pointing down) parts waxed as smooth as a baby's butt....

Both my friend here....and my sister....are huge proponants of temporary Pain.....for longer lasting....bareness......

I think they are Crazy...I get my eyebrows waxed....and I do have nerve receptors...thank you....so I can only imagine.....take eyebrow pain.....add more sensitivity....divide by how many strips....mulitply pain factor....subtract satisfaction at end result....and you still get one hell of an OUCH.....

There is not enough Booze in the world...to give me the liquid courage to expose myself...to the equivilant of modern day torture....when my bic...and Gilette Foamy work just as well....(minus the razor burn)

Now I'm not player hating...

I give mad props...(throw'n down the Ebonics) to my peeps....and anyone else who is brave enough to endure getting a Bikini wax....

and getting a Brazilian...you might as well be into Sado masochism....


I'm just too darn chicken.....


And to prove my point....I have an informative Video For your Viewing Pleasure....





Let's just not let the banning committee of New Jersey see this.....I don't think they need any more help in the Crazy Department....

My friends have done it. I got my pits waxed for my wedding. The lady said I could never get anything waxed with such sensitive skin again b/c I bled like crazy. Sorry to be gross, but that was my out for the rest of my life.
Thanks for stopping by my blog

Joy said...

Beyond my eyebrows, I would never do it. I'm such a baby that I watched this video with the sound off!

Cindy said...

No way! that's why they make creams etc...click

Michelle said...

Thanks for the video. I don't think it should be banned but I will pass. Waxing my eyebrows is painful enough. Plus I had a friend who did and said the pain was horrible!

Roxane said...

I had Brazilians done on a monthly basis for about 2 years. It wasn't very painful, the key is going to someone who is experienced (and licensed!). I had to stop to cut back on expenses BOO!

Michaela said...

I'll wax my leg, I'll wax my eyebrows, but you will not get wax anywhere close to down "there"!! I'd rather grab the razor daily and deal with it that way!!

Jaden Paige said...

haha... I've had it done, and it's really not that bad. I'd do it again :)

April said...

There are no waxers in my tiny town.....razors work just fine!

Heather said...

I'm a waxer. It's because it's way better than razor burn. I loved this video!!

Peggy said...

Holy crap that video was funny! None of them swore! They all kind of actually giggled afterward! I was clenching through that whole 3 minutes!

Thanks for stopping by this morning! I am definitely going to follow you from now on! :)

ConnieFoggles said...

I was nervous just watching the video, which was really funny, btw. I would never put myself through that. For what? I'd like to know how many men would go through that for women LOL.

Katamommy said...

Thanks for visiting my blog! I've considered doing this but am WAY too chicken. lol I like not being in pain that you very much!

Pink & Posh said...

I have to join the waxers of "down there" club too, as I drive 45 minutes one way to see a PROFESSIONAL every month. And don't let people sugar coat it for you. I have a high tolerance for pain, but when it comes to the "inner" part (sorry...LOL) I have to keep from screaming profanities... But I still totally prefer this to shaving!!!

Stacie's Madness said...

lmao. I've never gotten one, but it sure would easier than shaving everyday...down there.

Rachel said...

Yes. It IS THAT BAD. Did it once for the honeymoon, got so bruised it looked like someone kicked me in the va-jayjay. NOT SEXY.

Alice J. Byrd said...

LOL!
That's terrible.... xD
I felt so bad for those ladies.... but that ONE guy in the video made it worthwhile! Haha... At least he knows what some women go through. Yep, I don't think I'll be going to get one of those any time soon. o.0
By the way, thanks for visiting my blog! I love comments! =) Have a fantastic day!

Texan Mama @ Who Put Me In Charge said...

This is just my opinion...

Before Brazilians were all the rage, I once shaved down there for a boyfriend who wanted it.

I was never more repulsed in my life. In increased my enjoyment 0% and all I could think about was how I looked about 8 years old and I suddenly felt like I was dating a pedophile-wannabe. I wondered, "Why in the hell would he want me to look like that?" It skeeved me out so much. I kept thinking, Please God, let it grow back quickly. I wanna be a big girl.

Veggie Mom said...

Hmmmmmmmm...a Question for the Ages. A very PAINFUL question!

Ritch in Love said...

I did the binkin twice. And that was enough for me! I was in tears. I have no tolerance for that level of pain.Venus is the way I fly!

Mommy (That's my name, don't wear it out.) said...

That youtube was priceless!! Totally made me smile. I did it once and I would rather keep myself looking good down below... ouch!! great blog!

Aunt Spicy said...

Another vote for waxy!

And another vote for fewer appointments to save money!

Robin Lynne said...

I watched without the sound too (mainly because it's horrible on a laptop, but still) those faces! How awful. I've never had anything waxed prfoessionally (although I did try waxing a leg once with these Nair strips... didn't quite work.)

I'm an eyebrow tweezer - only because I have huge eyebrows that people say may me look like Audrey Hepburn :P (and only about 6 hairs need pluckin' at any given time.) TMI? nahhh.

HomeSpun Threads said...

OMG...I love how they totally enjoyed it. I think everyone of them laughed after the initial shock. WOW! Still wouldn't do it. It take a special kind of woman to have that done. Also, I love the one that got on her hands and knees and then they asked...so what is your profession? Too funny!
