Bejewelled Brazilians!

Brazilian WaxI was chatting with some girlfriends waiting for kids to come out of school and the topic found it’s way to one Mom who just had a Brazilian wax.  If this is too much information for you or you find this offensive I suggest you “Blog-off.” lol (as Bonnie would say) Not everyone can easily talk about topics such as this.  I can.  I don’t find anything woman do to feel sexier about themselves offensive, so I will continue.  I certainly won’t be offended if you turn the page, but do it now.

Glad your hanging in here with me.  This is just my take with a humorous twist that is here to inform those who are no so adventurous as the ones who are already equipped with this information.

This friend is one of those woman who can talk about pretty much anything without feeling even slightly uncomfortable.  She is curious (to say the least) and is who she is and embraces that.

So here we go.  She had her girl parts waxed or how I understood it, the entire pubic region clear cut…everything, front to back!  I am not sure I want to look 11 again.  I still remember the first time I saw a girl  who was older than me with hair down there, I couldn’t believe it, I know I stared.  I didn’t have any yet and felt awkward. (we shared a bathroom stall)  I will admit I HATE shaving and do it begrudgingly.  I have never had a Brazilian and don’t believe I ever will, but never say never.  It’s interesting to me what woman are willing to go through to feel sexier.

Up until this graphic conversation I couldn’t imagine how painful, awkward and embarrassing a Brazilian experience would be.  It’s not something most woman do research on, or want to talk about.  Now I know exactly what takes place!  So here goes…Brazilian Wax

When you arrive with your red face you are given a wet towelette to freshen up your soon to not be privates.  If your on the shy side you can ask for or they may offer up a paper g-string.  The wax-er for lack of a better word, may ask for you to assist in holding skin taut.  You will be contorted into several awkward positions, holding your butt cheek up in the air and crouching on all fours to get right in there by your you-hoo, yes most people have hair there.  If you arrive with that 70’s bush don’t be embarrassed if the wax-er brings out a weed whacker to give you a trim, you only need a quarter of an inch of hair for the wax to grab onto.  They start in the front and move to the rear, as in end.  If they don’t get every hair, and they don’t, they bring out the big guns I mean tweezers and start plucking the strays that hung on for dear life.  This makes me feel itchy just thinking about the re-growth!  If your wondering how long it lasted until you get a case of the itch, it’s approximately 3-6 weeks depending  if your a hairy monster or not.  Take the forest away forever and I’d entertain the thought.  Apparently if you stop shaving and only wax the hair doesn’t grow in as lush each time and you get better results every time.  Less hair = less pain.

If Brazilians make you feel sexier then wax away.  To each his own.  I was told there is a great place downtown Vancouver called The Sugar Box where you can get your ‘landing strip’ dyed a different colour and while your at it ‘bejewelled’ too!  Sounds adventurous!

  1. Ouch! Thanks for sharing on a subject that many are probably curious about but too embarrassed to ask about. And the photos you found to illustrate your piece are absolutely perfect.
    I just love that “me” suggested you get one first and then she will…LOL…then you could compare them. What a fun way to bond. Ha ha!
    Oh this is all too much fun!

  2. More Adventure time… Why ask a stranger? Ask your significant other to do this for you… baby oil or conditioner, a “high quality” new razor and a quietly slow detailed process that creates a lovely bond you will want to repeat…(no plucking!!) and use the salon money you just saved on some fine wine…
    …Proven fun & memorable….been there many times…

  3. Funny what you can still learn at the school yard!
    I’ve done the bikini wax thing never the brazillian not sure my husband would enjoy the “whisker rash” during the grow back time.

  4. ok – jacquie, blog off – seriously – heh heh 🙂

    I am a huge fan of the Brazilian. I’ve been waxing for almost 10 years, for these reasons:

    1) when you shave, it cuts the hair flat, so you get a red rash when it grows in because it’s the thick part of the shaft that has to push through.
    2) waxing out the hair at the root means a teeny tiny thin little brand new baby hair pokes through next time.
    3)the hair that grows in is thinner yes..but i find that a good thing. horse mane or soft wispy baby hair? your choice.
    4)it gets easier and easier each time, and i never found it really painful. i gossip the whole time, and it takes 2-3 minutes.
    5) NEVER let them wax you with more than 1/4 inch of growth! it makes it really painful for some reason. it’s been explained to me, but i forget. just trust me. trim first or accept the complimentary bushwacking.
    6) the ladies who perform this service see so many hoo hoos everyday – i’m just not worried they’re ever going to see me in a bar and whisper to a date whether i’m a cheeseburger or not (not)
    7) it feels really clean. I can’t explain it better than that, just really really clean and refreshing.
    And like Carry says in Sex and the City – it does make you feel like walking sex!
    8) An easy way to keep things interesting with your man. You can go from hardwood floors to disco bush, and change it up monthly. Throw in a steak and a nurses uniform, and he’ll never cheat.
    9) i personally have converted about 6 of my girlfriends and they will never go back to the razor. who wants to put a sharp blade anywhere NEAR their delicate girly bits??
    10) Wear a skirt to the waxer. don’t wear skinny jeans. They will put some vitamin E on you, and it’s best to just air out for the next couple of hours. Don’t plan a hot date for the same night as your very first wax, get it done a day or two beforehand.

  5. Brazilian wax poses problems.

    The only way I would get one is if Brazil’s soccer star Ronald Dinho gave me one, then I would have to get a Merkin to hide it from my husband.

  6. Okay so how much do we all LOVE ‘anne’ for her great info. You may have converted yet another ! It makes more sense to me now and well simply (in southern drawl) whhyyyy nottt !

  7. What is pubic hair good for? Scientists are still not sure about the function of pubic hair on our bodies. Some of the supposed & commonly held uses of pubic hair include:

    1. Pheromones are being dispersed by the pubic hair to attract the opposite sex.
    2. Pubic hair protects the genitals against friction during sexual intercourse.
    3. Hair in the pubic region helps to keep the genitals warm.
    4. Prevents dirt from entering the genitals.

    Frankly, I think ‘delicate’ subjects –such as Brazilian waxing in excessively graphic detail, are better suited to less public airing ; to smaller, more intimate ‘girls’ nights.

    However, I’m OK with this subject being raised here (even though I wouldn’t classify it as “Inspiring”!). But I believe it would be better treated with a modicum of humor, if any at all; less graphic detail; and in more clinical terms. I believe you risk losing a high level of respect when you forget the self-described purpose of — which is to be inspirational.

  8. Hi Jose ! Welcome to Tara Cronica , a website where we ‘inspire’ women, men, lesbians, homosexuals, transexuals and everyone in between to LIVE their authentic lives and use their voice truthfully. I am doing just that. Are you? In case you haven’t noticed yet I like to stir the pot and get conversations going. I use humour on ‘delicate’ topics such as this because it is a big part of who I am. I promise you and all my readers I will not compromise who I am because of someone elses issues on a topic. I have taken my filter off which equals being authentic. I find humour in that you thought this post used excessive graphic detail. I suppose you could have “blogged off” as I suggested but must have found it captivating enough to keep reading! I would rather lose respect for using my authentic voice than trying to be something I am not ! Authentically yours!

  9. Writing, and an abundance of differing opinions, obviously runs in my family. ‘Josie’ happens to be my mother, Jean, and I can assure you she was using her authentic voice. I grew up with it ringing in my ears! I’m only sorry she felt she had to use a pseudonym and won’t be too uncomfortable with me calling her out. She probably thought it would upset me if she said something negative, but I appreciate her taking part in what I’m up to now and admire and her stance.
    Thanks for joining in the conversation, Mother. Everyone’s opinions are valid here.

  10. Couldn’t let this pass Josie, I got so much info from Anne post very informative and enlightening.How much more inspirational can one get. Girls don’t let one comment change or influence your voice.

  11. The purpose behind ‘opinion’ based articles is to inspire others to give theirs ! Thank you all for your comments and taking the time to read and feel strongly enough about what we write to put it down in writing. My hope for our readers is that they feel confident and comfortable enough to use their ‘real’ name and to know we DO NOT JUDGE here at Tara Cronica only hope to inspire !! After all we are not hiding behind anything and put ourselves ‘out’ there for all to see, you can too!
