Brazilian waxes are fun.
Ok, maybe ‘fun’ is an exaggeration. But if you’re a woman who subscribes to the idea that her lady parts should be as neat and, er, as user-friendly as possible, than you may agree with the aforementioned statement.
Most women I know have their personal hair removal routines. Whether it’s shaving, waxing, using a dilapidating cream, or a mixture of all methods, most of us are invested in the way it looks down there. And who doesn’t love to get home, look in the mirror, and say with confidence, “I look good.”
But who are we doing this for? Our mates or ourselves. There are no statistics on the popularity trends of shaving everything off, but it seems to be prevalent enough for men to take public stances on the issue.
Recently, Bill Maher re-aired a statement on his popular late night political talk-show Real Time, lamenting about how much he misses the our “pubes”:
“Bring back a little pubic hair. Not a lot. I’m not talking about reviving that 1973 look that says I’m liberated … and I’m smuggling a hedgehog. I just want a friendly, fuzzy calling card that tells me I’m not going to get arrested.”
During a natural hair discussion on Dr. Drew’s Lifechangers, a man was a little more hostile in his critique of black women’s hair down-under, rudely denigrating women who wore weaves for he claimed “the carpet don’t match the drapes.”
So what do you think about how you look, down there? Are you happy with your private parts?
