I love equal opportunity rights for all, and I don’t mean just in the workplace. Like women, men are starting to explore the wonderful world of grooming — down there.
In a recent New York Times article, women aren’t the only ones waiting behind the curtain for a wax anymore. Just when you thought it was only women indulging (not really) in bikini waxes and Brazilians, now men are making the decision to go bare as well. Taking their full grown bushes to barely-there-baldies, all in the name of grooming.
Mike Indursky, the President of the Bliss chain of spas, offers a men’s Brazilian as the Ultimate He-Wax for $125, after realizing that waxing has indeed crossed cultural and communal lines.
“It’s the gay community, it’s the straight community, it’s very conservative guys, it’s very liberal guys,” he says. “All different age groups are coming in. It’s much, much bigger than we ever thought.”
I’ve never looked forward to my routine appointments with my aestitician. I mean how happy can anyone be when someone is standing over your sensitive spots waving hot wax around like a sword?
But it looks like men are going under the knife more frequently than before.
The NYTimes reports that men’s grooming has almost doubled in the recent years. At a discreet salon called Face to Face in the Flatiron district, men’s waxing accounts for 70 percent of the weekly business.
Surprisingly I’ve heard that many men actually enjoy getting “shaped up” down there. It gives them more of a presentation, while also making things appear, shall we say, a bit larger.
Many salons are also offering pejazzling, the male equivalent to bejazzling – where men can choose to have their penis-area decorated.
Hmm, sounds fancy (not really).
What would you think of a man who gets waxed down there? Yay or nay?
