"unhygenic/disgusting" by a weird North American society with a phobia
of body hair).


Unfortunately true, but I guess it's all relative. Our owners would
opine
that we don't have *enough* body hair! ;


Ha! That's true. I have really fine blondish hair you can hardly see, so I
can get away with
shaving once every couple of weeks. HOWEVER when I was 12 I decided that
the whole world could see my "moustache," which was a little peach fuzz in
reality--
so I put Nair on my LIP. And had a burned-on moustache that everyone
surely
did notice.


OUCH!!! I never would try Nair - regular hand lotions have been known to
burn my skin.

their beer-guts, but GOD FORBID a woman go out without shaven legs. Feh! I
gave up on the shaving, Nair, etc. long ago. I don't have time and I'm a
klutz. Razors and I don't get along too well either. And the last time I
tried Aussie Nad's...let's just say it was a big pain in the tuchus to get
it off Fritzie's paws. Why can the boys let it all hang out, but we dames
have to prove we're ladies by cutting it all off?


Because men don't look nice whatever they do, but women can if they
try?

I don't see it myself. All that hair in the wrong place, and a funny
shape too.

Default PING: Catnipped [OT] Bikini Waxing

CatNipped wrote:
Does anyone do it themselves???

I usually just shave, but my daughter said waxing is *much* better
(never any razor burn or bumps, no stubble, etc.), so I figured I'd
give it a try. Not having 100% visual access to the site I wanted
waxed, I thought to enlist DH's help (OK, in retrospect, it was not a
good idea to ask someone whom you've ever argued with to do this
particular job for you).
I'd bought the wax that's not supposed to need microwaving beforehand
(I didn't want any nasty burns on that part of my body) - it's
supposed to work with just you rubbing the outer part of the paper
strip to warm the wax.
First, never try to balance an open jar of wax on a bed when there
are cats in the room who are 18 pounds and might jump on the bed, and
*NEVER* open a jar of coconut-smelling wax in front of Sammy (don't
ask me how I'm going to get the wax off of Sammy's face!).

Second, when a product comes with a jar of Benzocaine for post
application pain deadening, it might be a good idea to go with
another method of hair removal.

Ben finally got the wax applied in a smooth, transparent layer, put
the strip of paper over it, smoothed/warmed the wax, and, firmly
holding my skin taut (OK, after a certain age skin has to be *held*
taut, it doesn't do that on its own), quickly yanked the strip off my
skin. That is, he yanked my skin, along with the strip, off of my
bikini area (why do they call it a bikini area when that area hasn't
seen a bikini in 30 years???).
Oh, look, there's only a few measly hairs on the strip, most of them
are still on the bikini area. So Ben puts the strip back on my
bikini area (um, sweetie, don't the instructions say that you're not
supposed to go over the same area twice?), and gives it another yank.
After he peels me off the ceiling, he looks and, lo and behold, there
are still hairs on my bikini area. Before I can yell *STOP* he has
put the strip back on my bikini area for a third try. This time when
he yanks it off I have his head firmly between my hands so he can't
go looking for more errant hairs.
I hobbled into the bathroom, looking like a cowboy who has ridden his
horse for too long, to look at the damage. I am *BLEEDING* around
the roots of the hairs that have *still* not come out. My skin is
beet red, and looks more horrible than it *ever* has after shaving.

Has anyone ever had *success* using a wax on your "bikini area", and,
if so, what brand/method do you use (OK, I am willing to try it again
- nobody ever accused me of being the sharpest tool in the shed).

LOL! Isn't it funny how the one guy seemed to react the worst to the pain?
Good thing they're not required to have babies? [Just kidding guys, sorry
about the male-bashing!!!]
