I am a firm believer that there is nothing worse on this earth than the pain of having a large patch of hair torn out of my bikini line. I’ve had many bikini waxes over the course of my lifetime (I’m a Jew – we’re hairy people!) and as much as I try, I cannot get through one without letting out a blood curdling scream. Poor Russian wax lady always feels so guilty.
Still, I keep going back for more.
Or less. Hair, that is.
The Brazilian, thanks to Samantha on Sex and the City, has become my wax of choice. As most women would agree (and those of you who don’t really need to reconsider), having a little forest poke out of my bathing suit/undies/mini skirt is not my idea of hot. A tiny landing strip – regardless how painful – is.
Perhaps I should reconsider. According to an article on the Huffington Post, “Genital waxing can be dangerous in that the hot wax can irritate or
tear delicate skin in the bikini area, resulting in infections.” In fact, two New Jersey women have recently sued in response to serious injuries downtown caused by a brazilian. I won’t go into details because I just ate lunch, but let’s just say it was gross.
And now Brazilians may be banned in New Jersey.
I understand that this is a pubic public safety concern, but people are angry! Salon owners, who would lose a lot of business with this ban, are outraged. I imagine the men who have to interact with a woman’s southern hemisphere are pretty pissed, too. And Diddy! What is he supposed to do?
I don’t know about you, but if I want my skin ripped off monthly in the name of hairless beauty, that’s my choice. New Jersey can’t tell me what I do with my nether-regions!
Let’s hope this doesn’t catch on; I don’t think I’m ready to do this one on my own.
