OK, OK. Perhaps, we're slow to the vagina trends. Guilty as charged. We know grooming is required (got that down), have gotten used to the idea of a Brazilian wax (though it still make us wince), and even suffered through Jennifer Love Hewitt's hawking of the bedazzled vajajay with an open mind (which was absurd). But now we're expected to feel like our lady parts are less woman without a (brace yourself) vagacial? Grooming Still Important In Tough Economy, Ladies
We barely even get facials. Hell, it's a good month if we remember to floss, and now we're supposed to scrape together the remains of our paycheck to give our nether regions a healthy glow? Vaginas With Teeth And Other Sex Myths That Bite
San Francisco's Stript Wax Bar got the brilliant idea to add a vagina facial to their menu for the hefty price of $60. Ideally, you indulge in this luxury when you have a Brazilian. The procedure is divided into four steps: first, skin is cleansed with an antibacterial body wash and witch hazel. Second, a papaya-based exfoliating gel goes on and ingrown hairs are extracted. Third, an anti-freckle, anti-acne, or calming mask is applied. Lastly, a coat of lightening cream is applied.
Anti-freckle? Anti-acne? Lightening cream? Are we now worried our vaginas are looking too weathered and freckled from all those hours in the sun? Beauty Rituals: U.S. vs. France
While people will find all sorts of ways to (dare we say) waste money, the bigger question: who are we doing this for? Men? Is your average joe going to notice that you spent your grocery money smothering your vagina in lightening cream? Is a vagacial the missing puzzle piece in the "Why Didn't He Call Me Back?" puzzle? The edge every single girl needs to secure a boyfriend or make her current one happy.
Or is this akin to wearing expensive, lacy underwear. The little sexy secret you need to put a spring in your step and a twinkle in your eye?
Readers, what do you think? Vagacial—waste of money or worth it?
