Why I’ll Never Have Another Brazilian Again

My husband and I have been married for over 17 years (obviously, I was a teen bride—OBVIOUSLY) so it can sometimes be a challenge to keep the spice in our sex life. We’ve used lots of things over the years: Lingerie, toys, porn, you know the drill (no, we have never used a drill).

But my favorite “spice” is pubic hair art. That is, over the years, I’ve shaved various shapes into my pubic region: hearts, arrows, a martini glass, his initial, etc. (My God, I just realized that I’m an artist, and my medium is pubic hair.) If a particular piece doesn’t come out well, I just make it a Rorschach test, and we have great sex anyway.

(I will not be including any of those pictures with this post.)

For my husband’s last birthday, I decided to surprise him with a Brazilian. Now, I’ve never had a wax job on any part of me before, much less one where they remove everything from my hoo-ha. (I know, they don’t actually have to remove everything, but I figured go big or go home, right?) I decided that I could spare some hair in honor of my husband.

I didn’t think much of the whole process when I was scheduling the appointment, but honestly, I was a little nervous when the day came. When the technician arrived, I gave her a frightened look.

“First time?” she inquired.

“Yep,” I chirped softly.

She then proceeded to explain the process and how she was going to remove the most sensitive hair first and then the rest of it. Then she moved the blanket.

“Oh. Uhhhhh, well, first we need to trim the hair back a bit. Quite a bit.”

I guess I had a forest going on there. I silently cursed my Italian grandmother. And the technician proceeded to trim my pubes with teeny tiny scissors (at least she didn’t have to get out a chainsaw), which actually tickled a bit. So I giggled and then got nervous about giggling over someone touching my pubic hair. Because it seemed vaguely inappropriate. (But it felt kinda nice.)

“Okay, now that we’ve trimmed the hair, I’m going to remove the most sensitive area first.”

“I’ve pushed out two kids. How hard can this be?” I pretended to be brave.

“Okay, then, here I go.”


But what I uttered through clenched teeth was a weak, “I’m okay.”

And then she pressed her hand against my pubic bone (I assume to alleviate the pain).

“Harder! Harder! HARDERRRRR!” I screamed. Only that might have caused some more awkwardness.

After she threw me a weird glance, she assured me, “Well, that was the worst one. It gets easier from here.”

And it went like that for one fucking long session. Time became meaningless. I tried to concentrate on my breathing and not kicking her in the fucking face. Breathe in. Breathe out. Restrain foot. Repeat.

Fortunately, she was right. The first one was the worst. (But the rest sucked pretty hard too.) After removing all of my hair, she applied some sort of soothing salve. It had a name. I don’t remember it. I was kind a hoping for a massage. Or a cigarette.

But the awkward sexual innuendo and the pain are not the reasons I will no longer be getting Brazilians. No, I could deal with those again. There are three other reasons I will no longer be waxing the hooha:

1. After the technician left the room, I picked myself up off of the table. Actually I kind of slid off of the table in my own sweat. I walked over to the mirror to examine myself, and I was horrified. Not because I looked like a prepubescent girl (although that was slightly horrifying). I was horrified because it was at that moment that I realized that my pregnancy stretch marks went ALL THE WAY DOWN INTO MY TANTALIZING TRIANGLE. They look like grotesque, greedy little fingers pointing the way down. Or lightening bolts threatening to strike any who enter.

Fortunately for me, my husband didn’t seem to notice the stretch marks. He was quite happy with the results. Also, he was too busy noticing that…

2… Without the hair there to provide a buffer, I was horny as hell. Constantly. This became a problem. (My husband didn’t think this was a problem.) It didn’t matter where I went or what I was doing, I wanted to attack my husband. Or the waiter. Or the lamppost. Suffice it to say, we had a lot of sex over the next week. But the constant horniness only lasted until…

3… The hair started growing back, and I switched from ecstasy to agony. AGONY. Apparently—and no one warned me about this—I am not a good candidate for waxing. The itching, while annoying, was the least of my problems. Turns out that I am prone to ingrown hairs, and they hurt like a mofo. I started telling my husband I had boils and scurvy and bad, bad shit. I looked like a diseased slave from Game of Thrones. Not even a Dothraki would ravage me.

So, basically, I’m done with the Brazilians. Forever. I’ll stick to pubic hair art to spice things up.

I’m thinking about a chili pepper next.

i love hearing these Brazilian waxing horror stories. The first couple of times always sucks but it does get better. I’ve waxing since I was 15, not because I was having sex, but it’s common practice with the women in my family.

Waxing was painful at first. Not bad now and compared to shaving, I rarely itch when it’s growing back. Shaving gives me s rash that looks like a naked diseased chicken.

I have a Brazilian wax once a year. They hurt like a mother. The technician says it will hurt less if I do it more often. Brazilian waxes are not cheap. To ease the itching, I shave between waxes and use the gel they sell, it’s worth it!

I can no longer go completely bald down there after keeping mine bald for around 15 years. You see, I contracted MRSA from a school I taught at in 2011 and I also have lupus. Well now I’m a mrsa colonizer/carrier. Every little skin opening I am subject to a relapse of mrsa which I have been hospitalized with numerous times. It never goes away, always returns.

It loves that region as well as the anus and the nose out of moisture and warmness of those regions.

I began to have constant mrsa outbreaks on my vagina region almost monthly but continued to shave there because it’s my trademark and I think it looks beautiful.

The mrsa got so bad that I no longer even wanted to live (it’s very painful). Any nick, and it enters and grows. My dr had warned me many times to stop.

Earlier this year I stopped. Now I keep mine trimmed short with a beard/facial hair trimmer but it will never be completely bald.

once I found myself saying I no longer wanted to live out of the pain, I finally gave it up.

Mrsa now kills more in the U.S. Than aids. It is extremely difficult almost impossible to irradiate once you are colknized or a carrier. Very depressing.

Laser IS effective. Actually I did IPL, which apparently is less hurtful. I loved it! Sure, you need a retouch every 6 months, but is worth it! In my case, it didn’t remove every single hair, but the ones that survived are very thin and take a while to grow. For me, it wasn’t painful, but I guess it depends on how sensitive your skin is and how thick your hair is.

Meppie 3 months ago

So I gotta ask at this point… since you have never experienced in-growns or itching… was all of this hair art in like 3D? You know… like those bushes and shrubs at Disney that are shaped into characters?

Elisabeth Grundnes 3 months ago

I have tried everything but laser. Now i resort to grabbing a pice of the forest and janking it out. Yes it hurts but at least I get a more fresh feeling down there. I don’t keep it all nude because it caused me to get infections. Now I keep mah curtians and since I’m single noone is bothered buy it. Healthy is always the best choice imo. ;P

Ingrowing hairs are the worst. Why do we put ourselves thru this lol whoever decided it was a good idea to make it a ‘trend’ to shave wax cream pluck etc our pubic hair should be shot. I bet it was a man……i reckon wed all plod along quite happily with our rainforest growing wild and out of control and because nobody had instigated the idea of hair removal we wouldn’t care! I wouldn’t care if the spider legs emerged from the side of my underwear cos that would be the norm but nope. I feel compelled to remove it because even tho the only people who see my vjay are my fiancé myself and the smear test nurse once everu three years, I still feel peer pressure. I may give the idea of shaving things into the hair a go tho, but I’m pretty sure given my lack of artistic skills that unlike the author of this post, pubic hair art is not gonna be my forté

I never tried waxing, just plain ole shaving.

Anyway, at my age the hair down there is pretty sparce. Perhaps a little artistic trimming may spice thing up. Thanks for the laughs and the warning.

Hi, I am 41 years old. when I was in my 20 and 30 I had a lot of waxing on my arms and the bikini wax. The bikini was is the most painful stuff I have ever had in my life, after the waxing session I can not even wear my undies because is so horrible painful not even have sex right away you imagine the pain of the fritccion of the skin.

I though was super sexy to have the brassilian wax for my guy I was just dating in that time, But guess what? one day he toll do not wax down there because he likes the hair and is more sexy for him to have a lot of hair. So since that time I do not have to do the brassialian wax any more. Also brassilian wax is a little bit expensive to pay to somebody to pull you hair owh, so I learn how to do the wax on my self an as a result of been doing wax for long time my hair does not grown anymore so i just have to pull the little one grown.

I so love this, I am an esthetician and know what it’s like to be the technician and the client. I too have that beautiful stretch mark that looks like I nearly split in half down my public area. Mine is so bad hair doesn’t even grow down that line more so I have no choice but to take the damn hair off so I don’t have a damn grand Canyon running up to what is supposed to be the only gorge of my body. Well if you ever attempt it again I have some awesome tips on how to help the who ha NOT welt up like a hive of bees nested in your underwear.

As a registered nurse on a surgical floor, I can tell you I will never wax there. I’ve had multiple patients over the years that have had to have surgery to remove badly infected ingrown hairs, it ends up looking like someone carved a chunk of skin out with an ice cream scoop. Not worth it!

Viv 3 months ago

Yeah, I used it on my legs, no problem, but did my ‘stache, which was barely noticeable anyway, and ended up with a horrific red burn that got more and more red as the day went on because I did it just before work and we were busy that night. I seriously thought I was gonna die, and everyone kept asking what was wrong with my face, so I had to act like I didn’t know, and just assumed I was allergic to my laundry soap (wiping arm across face) It was awful!

Kristy 3 months ago

OMG that was hilarious. As a mom the stretch mark thing I totally get… But I’m a regular waxer because my husband loves it so much. That one spot hurts like hell but I buy this stuff at the sex shop that numbs (in the anal section) and apply it all over the “waxing area” about 15 minutes before my appointment and I just read a book while she goes to town. I still flinch at that one spot but she surprises me and switches up the order. I never know when it’s coming and that seems to help. Also, when I get home I apply Aquaphor and never get the ingrown hairs anymore. The more regular you are the less painful and less time. I’m in and out in 15-20 minutes now. Living near the beach and with 3 kids I barely have time to shave my legs let alone my hoohaa daily.

tina 3 months ago

I’ve only used wax strips at home on the bikini line, that wasn’t bad, but I did shave it all off once and yes, the itching and ingrown hairs was horrid. Never again! I do trim it short, and shave the sides but im not going thru that itch-fest again. My husband shaved his hair off once too Haha! I refused to have sex with him for days while it started to grow back, it felt like someone was hitting me with a porcupine down there! Lol

I love your story! I recommend all my clients a product call PFB Vanish and it seems to help many of them with ingrown hairs. I’m Brazilian so being waxed down there is a must and when I have too much hair, I don’t let me husband near me! I must be bare down there. Makes me feel sexy!

My waxer gave me some take home salve which helped a lot. Granted, I don’t have a Brazilian either. My husband doesn’t like it, I’ve only gone mostly frontal.

Well for one, I’m kinda sorry how the waxing took place, I get and have given a lot of Brazilians and its not the same experience. Also you should have been spoken to about after care and ways to prevent ingrowns. And lastly despite my opinions this article was hilarious and waxing is definetly not for everyone! (But sometimes it depends on who’s providing the service)

This was amazing, and not too far off my first and only Brazilian. Although, I actually did scream “holy shit ball sack!” at the top of my lungs, at which point the kind lady doing my wax proceeded to laugh uncontrollably for 5 minutes…apparently I was the only customer she had in her 10 year career to yell it before.

Mariah 8 months ago

I’m the same, waxing causes awful breakouts, not attractive! I had laser removal on my bikini about 5 years ago, thrilled, absolutely thrilled at no shaving, just smooth skin. I get a hair or two growing in the lasered area occasionally which I just pluck or shave. I had been told to come back if that happens, but since it hurts like a mofo, I’m ok to just shave the one hair every three months or so. Lol. I’d love to get my legs done, but it’s pretty expensive.

Ps. IPL doesn’t work for hair removal no matter what they claim, I’ve tried it. It doesn’t hurt, but it also doesn’t work. It may reduce or soften the growth, but doesn’t remove the hair permanently. If you want real, long term, hair removal, you have to go for the traditional laser. Which yes, hurts. Ask your technician what type of process she/he’s using and do your own research before you commit! (I wasted a lot of money on IPL).

Crista 8 months ago

I’ve been a waxing specialist for over 17 years. This encounter makes no sense. The easier pulls are at the start. The harder ones are near the end when the endorphins start to kick in. It sounds as if this was a bad inexperienced waxer. Ingrown hairs come from a rough waxing experience and too much friction in that area too soon after the wax. Poor after instructions on how to treat the area clearly. Bad waxing technique would also cause the hair to come back itchy verse baby soft. It’s never pleasant, but it shouldn’t feel like an assault on your lady area either.

Matafleur 8 months ago

The more you wax, the less painful it is, the less ingrowns you will get and you are less horny afterwards since your bits are used to it (Italian, Portuguese and Black Irish…I know about hairy). Your waxer should have given you something to apply afterwards to help alleviate the ingrowns AND some numbing cream before. If you ever dive in again, apply lots of cream in that most ouchy spot.

Jennifer Botts 8 months ago

I have been shaving my entire area since I was about 19. I do it as a regular part of my shower routine about twice a week. For me it just makes me feel clean. It does start to get itchy but only of you don’t keep up with it. Any time I have tried to grow it back it makes me feel unclean. Never have tried waxing, but it sounds painful.

Megan 8 months ago

As a mom who is prone to ingrown hairs, i use waxing as an alternative to shaving. The first time I got a Brazilian, the I experienced the same reaction. I spoke to my esthetician and she advised me to exfoliate (gently) down there daily in the shower. After day three all problems were gone! I will never shave again. Give it one more try, it won’t be as bad as the first go around. Added bonus: the more regular you wax, the less hair grows back (and finer, too! ) my first experience was 5 years ago and I swear by it. I do my under arms, too

Shardae Sudweeks Curtis 8 months ago

Once you get in the routine of going regularly, the growth is sparse, so there’s less to be waxed and therefore not as painful. Plus that area gets more used to it, so not as painful again. It actually prevents me from getting so many ingrowns. If I shave, then it’s a nightmare. Everyone is different.

Chris Primmer 8 months ago

When I get a wax, it typically lasts a month, sometimes more. If you get one, make sure they are licensed and know what they’re doing. Also, if you’re nervous, start with a bikini wax. Much faster and not as– intense?

I think that the quest to appear pre-pubescent, is largely, pathetic, and also a bit horrifying. I do not want a sexual partner whom I have to worry about enjoying the adolescent look because they might also be a pedophile. To each her own, but food for thought, gals.

Be wary of lasers and IPL, I do it for a living and it is quite painful, plus it isn’t always permanent. Still prone to ingrowns during the process too, you have to exfoliate :/

I did this before. Once. While I was pregnant and couldn’t see the nether regions and barely reached well to take care of my own housekeeping. I bled and it freaked me out. Being ever-so-curious, one of my friends wanted me to tell her how it went. I called her after, lightheaded and shaking. I got her voicemail so I gave her the low-down as a message. It is 8 years later and she has still saved that message and listens to it when she needs a good laugh.

As a licensed Esthetician and someone who does TONS of Brazilian waxing, I have several points. Yes, the article was funny, I still have a sense of humor. #1-numbing spray. It helps the wax grab the hair and not the skin and is the same ingredient used to numb underneath the skin prior to receiving stitches/sutures. #2-there is client responsibility to prevent ingrown hairs. #3-product, experience and technique play a huge roll in your experience. #4-everybody looks different from each other “down there”, I’ve never seen ONE with stretch marks. #5-don’t EVER get waxed without a referral from a friend.

I’ve been waxing for 10 years, and wouldn’t have it any other way. I actually just got my own set up at home so I don’t have to pay astronomical amounts for someone else to do it! The more you stick with it, the better it is, hair grows back less and finer when it does! Buck up princess, it’s not that bad! 😉

Hi, if you are the last bit interested in getting another wax try using sugar body scrub or body glide(something like that) down there at least the days after the wax for as many days you want. It helps with the itching and ingrown hairs. I’ve been getting waxed every month for over a year now. Good luck with everything either way though.

I have been waxed over the years if I was going to ever don a bathing suit. Some were worse than others, I had one expereince with a professional that was horrific, painful the day of and it was so violent that the whole area was literally bruised– the bruising faded about the exact same moment that the hair grew back. Ugh! When I called to complain, the manager said the waxer had just broken up with her boyfriend!

Ingrown hairs are quite common with waxing. Olive Oil is a great solution to help prevent, for after getting a wax. When hair grows in no matter which way it comes out there’s irritation. Wax or shave.
Veet, Nair.. I wouldn’t recommend using down there either.

Olivia Kefer 1 year ago

OMG that is hilarious. Try sugar waxing. I started getting the Brazilian about a year ago and love it (not the pain although your first is the worst after that it is not as bad) for the ingrowns you are supose to use a body brush with dial soap and do it in circular motions. I have not had one ingrown and my friend who is prone to it as well has not had any either.

Sean, the crazy brother on The Big C, put it all into perspective. He said, “Women used to let their follicles grow wild like nature intended. I remember when going down on a woman was like snuggling, open-mouthed, with a baby lion. It was absolutely delightful. Now, it’s like licking a dolphin’s blow hole.”

Dianne R 1 year ago

The following is from Eve Ensler’s Vagina Monologues. If you haven’t seen the movie, do yourself a favor and buy it or rent it tonight. Then share it with all your friends.


Some of the monologues are based on one woman’s story, some of the monologues are based on
several women’s stories surrounding the same theme, and, a few times, a good idea became an
outrageous one. This monologue is based on one woman’s story, although the subject came up in
every interview and was often fraught. The subject being …


You cannot love a vagina unless you love hair. Many people do not love hair. My first and only
husband hated hair. He said it was cluttered and dirty. He made me shave my vagina. It looked
puffy and exposed and like a little girl. This excited him. When he made love to me my vagina felt
the way a beard must feel. It felt good to rub it and painful. Like scratching a mosquito bite. It felt
like it was on fire. There were screaming red bumps. I refused to shave it again.

Then my husband had an affair. When we went to marital therapy, he said he screwed around because I wouldn’t please him sexually. I wouldn’t shave my vagina. The therapist had a German accent and gasped (Gasp.) between sentences (Gasp.) to show her empathy. She asked me why I didn’t want to please my husband. I told her I thought it was weird. I felt little when my hair was gone down there and I
couldn’t help talking in a baby voice and the skin got irritated and even calamine lotion wouldn’t
help it. She told me marriage was a compromise. I asked her if shaving my vagina would stop him
from screwing around. I asked her if she had many cases like this before. She said that questions
diluted the process. I needed to jump in. She was sure it was a good beginning.

This time, when we got home, he got to shave my vagina. It was like a therapy bonus prize. He
clipped it a few times and there was a little blood in the bathtub. He didn’t even notice it ’cause he
was so happy shaving me. Then, later, when my husband was pressing against me, I could feel his
spiky sharpness sticking into me, my naked puffy vagina. There was no protection. There was no

I realized then that hair is there for a reason — it’s the leaf around the flower, the lawn around the
house. You have to love hair in order to love the vagina. You can’t pick the parts you want. And
besides, my husband never stopped screwing around.

Dianne R 1 year ago

I’m not a fan of pubic hair art on my body. I do it merely for comfort because the hair can be irritating to my skin. I am very sick and tired of hearing about men who complain that they like vaginas without hair because they look clean and sleek. It’s not a new car they’re looking at. It’s a part of a beautiful and complex system of the human body. It’s not meant to be on a showroom ready for someone to test drive it. Don’t lay it all out there on display. Let there be some mystery and subtly in your seduction. It’s meant to be tenderly and lovingly explored, letting the sensitive treasures be revealed by roving fingers and tongues. If a man can’t handle a little hair in his way now and then, he’s not worthy of sharing your bed.

Dianne R 1 year ago

I occasionally use Sally Hansen’s waxing strips and have my guy help me do it at home. I take Lyrica for my fibromyalgia pain and it helps to relieve nerve pain so waxing rarely hurts me. But I don’t know if that would be the case for anyone taking Lyrica or Neuronton or anything else in that class.

If you wish to explore pubic hair art, you could use experiment with dyeing your hair. There are several types available now that are specially designed for use in sensitive areas. Hair chalks and foams can probably be used, as well, but to be on the safe side, check the label and/or call the 1-800 number on the box. Trust me, you won’t be the first one asking that question.

Dianne R 1 year ago

Use of depilatories such as Veet, Nair of Sally Hansen is not advised on or near the bikini area. It can cause chemical burns so let’s all agree to not do that, shall we? You really don’t want that part of your body to feel like it is on fire. It’s not pretty.

I love my waxes, first time was bad but gets better. I have stretch marks and love them as they remind me of being a mother and don’t bother me at all in any other way. This was 1 persons experience, no a fact. Don’t wax around your period as is more painful and make sure the waxing place is hygienic. There is no science attached to this post/blog since is one persons opinion. Waxes rock and I am a hairy Latina. :) rasor bumps suck and hairy wooha a no no for me, too stinky.

Helen 1 year ago

I love waxing and despite that I do have stretch marks they don’t seem to bother me at all. No ingrown hair here and no itchiness at all. Love waxing, first time was cruel but gets better right after the first time. Plus I don’t wax around my period as intensify the pain. No one should stop doing something because someone had a bad experience, we all are different.

Kristen 1 year ago

I take it no one mentioned to exfoliate daily to prevent ingrown hairs? I get a wax done regularly. 5 weeks is the norm, but its the best. My lady takes 10 minutes (from the time the clothes come off to they go back on) – not long at all and to me, well worth it. I don’t west skimpy swimsuits or anything.. just makes me feel cleaner. Not a fan of hair, just won’t go the permanent route because there are men who like hair and I would hate to find my soulmate and then realize my hair (or lack there of) is a deal breaker on enjoying intimacy.

Nml 1 year ago

The difference is the hard wax vs the soft wax. I found a gal I drive 30 miles to see. I don’t do it as suggested just when it gets too out of control. It hurts while she’s doing it, but I’m fine afterward. I got my first one year ago for my SO I went to get a facial and she had extra time. Now we do the wax before the facial.

You forgot to mention the part where you splash all the tolilets and yourself everytime you pee in a public restroom (not actually seating, but like squatting, you know what I’m talking about). It’s the most annoying part of not having hair “there”. You pee all over the place, no hair to guide the pee into one single stream. And ALAS we’ve doing the anatomical reason for pubes in women!!!!!

Sorry for your experience, but yoyr technician really sucked. She was suppose to explain after care to you. She should have explained to you that you need to exfoliate every other day to keep the top layer of skin from forming over the growing hair. And a natural scrub would have been the best to use. Or something I like to call exfoliating moisturizer. I am prone to ingrown hairs as well, but with these after care steps I didnt have one single ingrown and I didnt itch while it was growing back.

I got one a week before my wedding. It was a mani-pedi trip with the girls. They suggested i get a Brazilian. It was a new thing that just came out (yep this was a while ago). Ok – wow never again. My skin is thin, and everywhere she ripped off the wax – I bruised. Badly. I didn’t have her take off the whole thing (thank God) but it was enough to where I looked like I got the hell beat out of me for the next week. Giant purple burning crotch. Lovely. On my wedding day I not only had to deal with the outgrowth and the itch, but the ingrowth and the pain. Plus my crotch was a very pretty color of green (it wasn’t envy believe me). Some people just aren’t meant to get these things.

I too tried all of that and found waxing to hurt alot. My friend goes to be sugared and told me I should try that. She was right it was a way better experience. It did not leave me with a red hoo-ha from skin and hair being ripped out, cause the sugar only grabs the hair. One spot was sensitive but everywhere else was ok

Trisa C 1 year ago

While, yes, this is hilarious, this type of scenario and how common it is drives me BONKERS. As a professional in the field (esty first, and now full cosmetologist) what the writer and a lot of you in the comments went through is terrible, unprofessional, and sad that it’s so common place.
This is a fantastic example of why detailing before and after care is so important. None of what she experienced should have happened or been shocking, minus what is 100% unavoidable (like the discomfort during the service). She should have been asked at scheduling if she was a first timer and directed to a FAQ, or told over the phone. Length requirements, exfoliating prior, exfoliating after (so constant friction like awesome sex won’t cause more ingrowns).
Yeah. She still may never do it again, but ingrowns fucking suck and she should have been informed of their potential and how to care for them, amongst other things. Shame on the waxing studio, and her waxer.

It gets better if you keep with it! Only the first one or two times hurt like that, once the hair gets softer from not shaving and you go regularly, it doesn’t hurt! Also you can get creme that prevents ingrown hairs and numbing creme kits.

I am a regular waxer… I HATE the hair down there, I feel so much cleaner and fresher when it’s not there. I have tried laser but they said my hair color isn’t quite dark enough, so I guess i’m just destined to a life of waxing.

Andrea Gardner 1 year ago

I remember my first time getting waxed (and yes first time is the most painful it gets better) anyway my first time I was already nervous and embarrassed but they had girls in the room they were training also!! So I had a small audience. But worst part or that caught me off guard was when they said “ok, now put your legs straight up in the air” and I was like ok WTF… and they then waxed my ass crack!!!!

Christine 1 year ago

I have a similar story..My husband and I were going to go on out first trip abroad, to celebrate our 30th anniversary(I did get married early, at 17). So I thought I’m not THAT old, I can get this done, when I saw the Groupon for a Brazilian. Just like you, I wanted to surprise the hubby. I called and made the appointment with a very pleasant young woman on the phone. Then I realized I hated to drive to the city. So I called my middle daughter and begged her to please take me (she had lived in the city and was well experienced at getting around). As we drove in to the city, I increasingly became more nervous. This was a BAD idea. My daughter went to park the car and I went in. Immediately, I noticed 2 younger, thinner, long-legged, well dressed with beautiful hair women sitting in the waiting area. Now I’m thinking…yeah, I don’t belong here. All the while thinking, where’s my daughter? Shortly after 3 very handsome young MEN walk out and stand there smiling. The first guy says a name and one of the young ladies said “That’s me.” and goes in with the guy. The second guy says a name and the other young lady says “That’s me.” and goes in with the guy. Now I’m looking around for a third young lady when this handsome young guy says MY name. All I can do is stare at him and in 8 different ways/voices say NO…no…NOO..no no…um, NO-O-O. He says “Yes.” Then the conversation goes something like this…I can’t…Why not?… Your a guy!!..(He then throws out his hand and hip and says) No I’m not!…Yes you are!…No I’m not!…Oh dear god!..
I heard this was your first time so I asked them to give you to me…WHY!? Oh dear god!..Just come with me and we’ll talk. So now I’m desperately looking around for my daughter, while tentively following him to THE ROOM. Fearfully I enter. He starts explaining how we are going to proceed and how he won’t put me in any compromising positions. All the while I’m looking for ways to excape. He then asks me if I wanted a drink?…What do you have?…Some water with fruit in it?..Oh, I thought you meant something with alcohol. He then walks over to a drawer and pulls out what looks like a big pill. I’m thinking Yes! Drugs! Probably a good idea! He then unravels the big pill and to my surprise it’s a thong! You get undressed from the waist down and put this and a cover-up on while I go get you that water…That? What’s that gonna cover! After he leaves I’m walking in circles talking out loud to myself…You can do this, stop being a whimp!…Oh dear god!…Knock it off and man up!!. So I put my big girl panties (but not really, the thong was tiny and paper thin). He walks back in and with a surprised look of amusement says, I can’t believe you did it! We all could hear you talking and were betting you’d leave!..This is BAD idea, where’s my daughter?. He let’s her in for moral support. She sooooo does not want to be in the room with me but I grab her hand and beg her not to leave me. So I lay back and he discreetly proceeds from outside-IN. OK, this isn’t too bad, thoroughly embarrassing but do-able. But then we get to the IN part. Now this wax is soothingly warm on regular skin but unusually hot on that other kind of skin, nearly scolding!..
Whoah! Too hot! Too hot!…No it’s not…Yes it is!…OK, I’ll turn it down. Then he rips it off. I let out the highest pitched yelp I’ve ever heard. All the dogs in the neiborhood probably heard. I couldn’t help myself. My daughter was so embarrassed. And I tried not to make the noise but it was impossible. And in my panic I tried to bite her hand. What the hell Mom?!..Help me!..Get ahold of yourself! Another rip. Yelp!…Wait! Wait!, Have you ever accidentally taken off a labia before?…No…Are you sure?…Yes…Oh dear god! And it so went, Rip-Yelp!…Rip-Yelp! Till it was done. After, I got a chance to look at it. Yep, prepubescent girl (creeepyyy!). My technician was so nice he even waxed my legs, underarms, upper-lip and eyebrows for practically nothing. I asked him was I the oldest woman to have a Brazilian?..Nope, we have a lady in her 60’s that is a regular…Really?!…Yes…Wow. I tipped him BIG for having the bad fortune of having to deal with me. When I was leaving he said to ask for him the next time I came in. I hugged him and said “Oh sweetie, I want to thank you but I’m never doing that again.”.

Pallavi 1 year ago

OMG that rings a bell and not in a nice way. I’ve had a Brazilian a few times. And all I remember is promising myself that never again will I do this. However, maybe I am just a masochist inside and after a few months I just go back to it. You know what is worse? In India, they don’t take out most sensitive hair first so on a scale of 10 you go from pain level 10 to pain level 100 in a little time!

I think you’re looking way too deep at her story! She’s a great writer who expressed herself with such humor that I fully believe she embraces her own sexuality quite openly and honestly. I’m not sure who told you that pubic hair has “grown obsolete in modern day and age”. You are obviously passionate about whatever you feel your selling but the rest of us think her story was wonderfully honest, heartfelt, and definitely showed complete ownership of her own feminism.

I actually loved getting my potato waxed.. until I got the waxing nazi who obsessed over an apparent ingrown hair sooooo much she removed plenty of skin in the crease between my potato & leg. I couldn’t wear panties for at least 5 days because the pain was unbearable. I stick to shaving now.

Couldn’t help but laugh so hard at the silent swearing we women are very good at at moments like that. Like when your soccer shoe wearing son runs by over your bare foot and your toe nail lifts up. You know the drill. OK…Back to shaving. I’m married for almost 30 years and we are still like college kids in bed. We even have four kids. Trick is…no waxing is needed. Just shave it all. Trust me, remember how you cut yourself shaving your legs the first few time and now you can nail it in 2 minutes or less. Same thing with your pelvic. Yes, first time, trim super short!! Then shave. Go slow at first. But eventually it really gets easy. Be patient. And yes, you will get horney since you can climax much easier without all the hair in the way. Horray. Girls, that’s the sweet ticket. You will be happier. Next, your man will love it, stretch marks and all, since you made the effort for him. Plus men are so visual. The longer you have it all clean, the more you will ask yourself why didn’t I always do that. Good luck and have fun!!!!

I’ve been getting waxed for years. It all depends on where you go and the products you use. I’m very prone to ingrowns but I get horrible razor burn no matter what I do so I get waxed and use an exfoliant that was recommended by my waxer. Also the horniness settles down once you get used to it

South Dakota Girl 1 year ago

I had several done shortly after we were married, but I had to drive 2 hrs to the nearest town to get one done. So I took note of what type of warmer, wax, and strips were being used to remove the hair and bought them from Sally’s Beauty. I showed my husband how to apply the wax and rip the strip off on my legs and then I had him wax my hoo ha (of course I had to describe how the technician did some areas). He now does it every 4 weeks and it’s much cheaper. Pop a Tylenol about a half hour prior and start sipping some wine. The wine makes it MUCH more tolerable! I also wax his back and they do make wax for sensitive skin and that is what we have to use on his back.

I received my first full body wax — because I was too embarrassed to tell the waxing person to stop. When she asked what I wanted done I said “what ever you suggest” ….. I was left with my eyebrows. And that is all.

I just thought if I lay there quietly and let her do what ever she wanted, the pain and humiliation would end without me having to ask or answer anything.

I have been going back to her for about three years and we follow the same routine every time.

Samantha 1 year ago

I don’t think this is a funny article at all. I am in my early twenties and was a professional bikini waxer for nearly three years. You have no idea how sad it is to have women come in, just like you, and be embarrassed of their bodies. This is exactly what your article boils down to whether you realize it or not. You list your “hidden” stretch marks as a main reason that you’ll never get another wax. Clearly your husband loved it and your sex life took a very positive turn (how can something this wonderful be overlooked!?). However, you are terrified of your body after doing the most beautiful thing a woman can do, sacrifice her body for her children. I don’t think your husband of how many years would mind seeing stretch marks being that you carried and delivered his children. Only you mind and perhaps you need to love yourself as much as he does. You also list constant “horniness” as a problem. I am baffled. Something that ignites passion in your relationship after what I assume was a very typical vanilla sex life is in no way a bad thing. Take some pride in your feminine sexuality and the amazing power of desiring the man you married. I realize that this is a very long rant; however, after so many years of meeting women just like you I find it so frustrating that you are unable to let go and enjoy your womanhood for all of the pros and cons without thinking of modesty or that a huge bush hides your flaws. The only reason that you should “never get a Brazilian again” should have been the ingrown hairs. period. Not that you hate your body and your sexuality. It sends a terrible message to those of us from a younger generation that our accepting our bodies and our sexuality as empowering and positive things. A wax is a wax and it only enhances how you feel on the inside.

Elizabeth Shirley 1 year ago

Post care is the clients responsibility. I’m sure all the friction from the sex is what caused most of the ingrowns. People act like brazilians aren’t supposed to be painful or something. Your ripping your pubic hair out!

Andra Adams 1 year ago


Samantha Nicole 1 year ago

I’m sorry, but listing “constant horniness” as a negative aspect of getting a wax is a completely archaic way of looking at female sexuality. Pubic hair is not meant to be a chastity belt that tames our sexual desires. It is a physiological mechanism designed for health and hygiene that has grown obsolete in modern day and age. If you cannot take pride in your own feminine sexuality and the stretch marks of doing the most selfless thing a woman can do; sacrificing her body to carry and deliver her children, then I frankly feel sorry for you. If you and your husband looked at your stretch marks in any type of “horrified” way, it seems like an extremely superficial way to view over a decade of marriage and the blessing of healthy happy children. I’m in my early twenties and am grateful to come from a different generation of how I view my body, my gender, and my sexuality.

This is hilarious, but IMHO I think this is over dramatizing the whole waxing experience. Yes, it is a little uncomfortable and yes, it does hurt (it hurts less and less the more you wax)… I think getting my eyebrows threaded hurts more. Don’t be scared.

Holly 1 year ago

Waxing has the same ingrown hair issue for me…but, I have to ask…and I am being serious…

Do you use stencils? An eyebrow trimmer? How do you get shapes???!!!

90% of the time I end up fully shaved because I can’t even get the “landing strip” straight.

But, I am pretty sure he would enjoy the hell out of some creative shapes!

Thanks for being brave and sharing your story!

Alicia 1 year ago

I started getting bikini waxes several months ago and I would NEVER go back to shaving! I like being smooth with just that little landing strip left, and it lasts so much longer than shaving. I don’t think the pain is that bad, but everyone has a different pain tolerance. The trick to not getting ingrown hairs is exfoliating every other day. And you HAVE to keep up with this – when I get lazy and don’t exfoliate, then I start itching.

I did a bikini wax before going on vacation for my 1 year anniversary (9 years ago now), the hubbster and I agreed. He’d shave his chest and back and I’d get a bikini wax. I can’t remember if I cried after but I’m sure I thought about it. Promptly got home and told hubby that I didn’t care if he liked it or not, no way in hell was I ever doing that again. And he still had to shave his chest and back that year. I can’t even fathom how much a brazilian would hurt.

I would wax and shave and have the same issues. Ingrown hairs everywhere. DH loves it. Skin on skin without all the course hair feeling like a scouring pad while we rubbed against each other. I finally decided that the ingrown hairs were too much. And in comes the laser hair removal. While in the clinic I decided hell if I’m going to get rid of pubic hair why not just make the rest of my shower routine easier as well. Now I have no arm pit hair, leg hair or pubic hair….well except for the thin blonde hairs the laser can’t get. As far as the pain I take the laser over the wax anyday. As far as the libido goes. I just feel more confident that I’m always ready to go without any “hold on I have to go to the lady’s room to freshen up” and then procede to remove any excess wild bits.

I have been getting brazilians done for a very long time, and I promise the itching and regrowth part get better over time (hair gets thinner, you know what to expect, etc.) Also, ingrown hairs with a Brazilian are VERY normal. My aestatician suggested using an exfoliating scrub with salicyclic acid (doesn’t have to be expensive – St. Ives apricot scrub works great, in fact I use the Target up&up brand). This works well to prevent and get rid of ingrown hairs. I even scrub my butt too for good measure. Why not?!

Sugaring is the way to go. Less ingrowns than with waxing. It is a natural product, not hot like wax, no strips needed, only sticks to the hair and not your skin, pull hair in direction of growth, less reactions. But your first brazillian will still hurt like a mother, yikes. Maintenance is much more easily tolerated lol.

The best thing to do about ingrown hairs is to gently exfoliate the area. Or go back to your water and have her take care if them for you. After the first time, the pain goes down a lot! And then after a while, your amount of ingrowns will almost go away completely. DON’T GIVE UP!

After the first one the second wax is not nearly so bad. The key is exfoliating well as your hair grows back in. I also use chlorhexidine wash right after the wax to keep from getting a rash. All of those open pores attract the germs. But I like it for reason number 2!!

I get Brazilian’s done all the time and EVERYONE is prone to ingrown hairs. I mean think about it, the skin down there isn’t as tight and the hair is curly. Perfect recipe for an ingrown. Exfoliating is a must in that area especially when the hair starts to grow back.

I can’t speak for all guys, I have seen my share of hairy women, and clean women, but while down there, I have found stuff, Kleenex, rolled up balls of stuff.

And tthe smell, ugh. I don’t care how much you wash it, I can smell it, not to mention having to spit out hairs…

Clean shaven if like eating watermelon , hairy is the same but it first fell in the hay and I have to eat around it.

I love getting waxed. After a while the hair grows back so thin and sparse… it doesn’t even hurt anymore! Also, using a Salicylic acid-based cream or gel after waxing helps stop red bumps and ingrown hairs, and you have to lightly exfoliate as well.

Sara Lynch Cox 1 year ago

I’ve never understand why men even want their woman to be hairless to begin with. We were MEANT to have hair for a reason. Besides it making us look like little girls, which I find very strange that grown men find that attractive, (strange as in a little pedophilish) it can also leave us more susceptible to infections or STDs like herpes. I’m all about grooming the area so I don’t look like Chewbacca, but i don’t see keeping it completely bald. I’m not going through that kind of agony for a man..child birth is enough! I guess it’s different strokes for different folks, but if a man isn’t attracted to the way I look down there because I keep it the way NATURE intended, the problem is his not mine, & I’ll just give it to someone who does like it : ) y’all know what the problem is don’t ya? Watching too much porn has ruined men’s expectations of women!

I think it’s because the skin is exposed to the elements (panties mostly) so it gets stimulated inadvertantly. I know I am constantly horny when I’m all shaved down there. I let it grow out for a bit per DH’s request for a change (we are young so his experience has always been with hair-free chicks and porn) and I noticed a big change in my sex drive going down. As far as why a man would want it you are right on about the oral, but I would also say it’s often just interesting to see a body part surface under the hair. Personally I prefer DH well trimmed up in the pubic area, though fully shaved isn’t necessary. It’s all personal preference though, thankfully

I have done it a few times, and have never had a problem… The woman I see uses sugar wax though, which does not rip the skin off like hot wax does. That is where most of the pain lies. Afterward, the technician suggested an ingrown hair foam (similar to a chemical peel for your hoo-hah) to apply once daily until the hair grew back in. I Overall a pleasant experience, and both hubby and I were particularly satisfied with the results!

I had my first (and only) a few days before my wedding. Unfortunately I had a terrible reaction to the wax, lots of red bumps. .

exfoliate as the hair starts to grow back, it helps remove the dead skin from the surface, which can trap and encourage ingrown hair. :) Also, the more often you get waxed (in whatever location) the lighter and finer the hair grows back and therefore the less it hurts when it is yanked out. :) I don’t do brazilians anymore, unless by special request of my partner, because I don’t like the pre-pubescent girl look, but I used to when I modeled and the exfoliating really does make a huge difference in how many bumps you get as things come back in.

I had one once. The lady said she would have to charge me extra because it was like waxing a Yorkie.

Thanks for the report! I’ve never waxed that particular part of me, but given the way leg waxing turns out, I think I’d be a bad candidate too. I will definitely show this to my daughter!

I attempted to do this with an at home kit while pregnant with my DD. I failed, took off one tiny patch, almost cried, then shaved the rest off. I was freaking out because if I couldn’t handle the pain of waxing how the fuck was I going to give birth without an epidural!? After having her(without an epidural) I convinced myself that I must have been too sensitive while pregnant and it wouldn’t hurt as much while not pregnant….nope. Still hurt like a motherfucker. Never again.

Hilarious! I agree, waxing sucks. Have you thought about laser or IPL as an alternative? Permanent hair reduction and none of the pain. Permanently horny for 40 years maybe?

Thank you so much for having me again! I hope folks can have a good laugh at my expense. 😉

This is funny. I’ve never waxed and never wanted to. I do keep myself trim and tidy but I find the hair free trend a little tedious. Maybe I just don’t know the purpose of the trend except to wear skimpy swimsuits, which I don’t so there is no point. I would love to know why being hair free would make someone horny. I would also love to know why a man would like it (being hairfree) so much. Sure it would make oral less icky but if you are trimming already then it shouldn’t be an issue.
