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 ...

For years, I've heard horror stories of the Brazilian bikini wax. Getting down on all fours, raising a leg like a dog peeing on a tree, spreading my butt cheeks to allow a complete stranger to apply hot wax in the most private crevices of my body—these didn't seem like things I needed to rush out and experience (at least not in public) ...
