To shave or not to shave … that is the million-dollar question (and if you get razor burn as easily as I do in the winter then it’s really a no-brainer). But for guys, does the decision to go bare really matter? Or is the bush coming back in style? From manscaping to Brazilian waxes, guys get real about pubic hair.
A recent survey found that 51 percent of ladies are just letting things go wild down there without any styling or grooming to be had. If Diaz, along with Lady Gaga, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Solange, just to name a few, are keeping their Downtown Browns, what about the rest of us? What are all us average ladies on the street doing, and what do the men in our lives thing about it?
YT sat down for some smooth talk with Normajean Fusco, hair removal expert and founder of Nufree, a self-preserving, antibacterial, antimicrobial alternative to waxing that will leave you smooth and hairless with less mess and virtually no pain. Read on for her answers to your questions about how to be smooth and sexy just in time for bathing suit and summer fling season.
It's finally here: bathing suit season! Trips to the beach and a whole lot of sun are in store for your summer. But what about waxing? The bumps, the pain, the redness — none of it is exactly conducive to a sexy day at the beach. This season, try a hair removal method that not only does its job, it also leaves little-to-no indication behind that it was ever there!
About two months into my relationship with B, he started sharing his desire to see me get a Brazilian wax. Of course, this was never going to happen. Not only are guests not welcome in the waxing room, but I wasn't about to have anyone outside of my beloved waxer see me writhe in such pain as I did everything within my power not to scream out something bizarre or obscene.
Whether you're single or with your partner, when you're on the way to a much-deserved vacation from work, the last thing you want to think is stuff like, "Dammit, I wish I'd remembered to wax my bikini zone." Luckily for you, we've compiled a handy list of beauty rituals to take out the stress and pressure out of your precious sun-soaking days.
The reality of getting your body fuzz-free and beach-ready is this: It's an ongoing process and there can be an ouch factor. As a Cuban-born Jew with hair to spare, I should know. But after more than two decades of reporting on (and trying) the latest beauty products, here are my tried and true hair-removing favorites.
As far as the attractiveness of the Foxy Bikini and The Carnivale (the fox fur and the feather treatments, respectively) go, this writer has not enjoyed the opportunity to check them out close-up. However, one can imagine that it would be pretty funny to go through the awkward process of pulling someone's clothes off for the first time to be confronted with what looks like an animal either trying to enter or escape from a woman's babymaker.
According to experts in the field, men are going in for more and more hair removal treatments at spas. At the center of this trade is a male version of the Brazilian wax, a wax that removes all pubic hair from a person's groin. The so-called "Boyzilian" (or as we call it, "Brozilian") may be inspired by porn, or just weird evolutionary shame.
Have you ever thought about why do humans have pubic hair? What is its purpose? It seems no one (at least under 30) is letting his or her bush sprout. Instead everyone is talking about what to do with their pubes. Should I shave them? Dye them? Trim them down to a runway strip? Experts aren’t exactly sure why we have pubic hair, but there are a few theories which seem to make a lot of sense.
In The Hairpin's Ask a Dude column recently, an advice-seeker brought up this hairy situation: who should pay for your bikini wax? She thinks the man asking for it should, writing "I always think guys should be paying for the Brazilians if they want their ladies to have them. Is that insane?"
Over the last couple of decades, Americans have been grooming more and more. I'm guessing that skimpier outfits have led women to remove more hair. And, somewhere along they way, us dudes were convinced that we needed to have hair removed, so we agreed to some waxing. But manscaping has possibly spun out of control with the male Brazilian wax. Is this something that we really need?
The spa geniuses have come up with a new way to pretty up our lady parts and empty our wallets—vattoos! If your logic computes that must mean a combination of vaginas and tattoos, then congratulations, you're pretty smart. However, understand these tattoos are (thankfully) painted on and are a good couple of inches above your actual vagina (thankfully again).
The other day, Jennifer Love Hewitt appeared on "Lopez Tonight" to plug her new dating book, The Day I Shot Cupid. During the course of the show, she revealed that one of the tips in her book—practiced by a friend of hers—was to glue Swarovski crystals to one's pubic area. Now, we're all for bedazzling ... T-shirts ... but we're a little worried that some women are taking the personal landscaping a little too far. Here, five crazy beauty rituals that we women perform below the belt.
