For this week's "What Women Really Think Of…" we asked women what they think about men's body hair. And when we say body hair, we don't mean just a furry chest, but all of it: backs, happy trails and even their Downtown Curly Browns. The consensus? You might be surprised … or maybe not.
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.
Sure, he says that he loves you even without makeup on, and that's sweet, but that doesn't mean you have permission to now only wear makeup when you get gussied up to go out with the girls! Remember at the beginning of your relationship when you were shaving your legs and perfectly coiffing your hair down there thinking, "I can't imagine ever not wanting to take the time to do this." What happened? Like women, men want to feel wanted, they want to be desired.
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.
Beauty news from around the web! When do you pluck your eyebrows? Kate Upton was Photoshopped. Heidi Montag looks horrible without makeup. From New York Fashion Week, the major fall color trends of 2012. Natural, organic lipsticks. Crazy tattoos. Whitney Houston's beauty legacy. And, winter beauty trends men hate.
We've all been in relationships where, at times, we've felt more like a mom or a secretary than a significant other. While we understand that healthy relationships require compromises, we've compiled a list of favors that good boyfriends know better than to consistently request. If you're constantly taking on any of the items on this list (especially with any hint of resentment), it's time to get your guy to lend a hand.
We've come a long way from the days of Burt Reynolds' hairy chest to what's considered sexy now. "No Shave November," this month's prostate cancer awareness campaign, which is encouraging men not to shave for the entire month, is certainly an exception to the trend!
Do good men lie? Is emotional intelligence the most important thing in a husband? Is a "loose" "lady area" indicative of unfaithfulness? How much is your sex worth? There are 10 things all people want in a partner. What to do when your guy has unfinished business with his ex? Why cohabiting is going to ruin your relationship. What men learn about women in college (not college women). The basics on manscaping.
Recently I've been coping with the aftermath of a breakup—not a separation from my significant other, mind you, but from my waxist. Our split was not for lack of compatibility. She works at an athletic club where my husband and I discontinued our membership for budgetary concerns. I knew I would miss my go-to gal, but I frankly I didn't realize quite how much. And I suspect my husband, ahem, misses her too.
When it comes to wooing the opposite sex, men have it easy. As far as I know, they approach you and whip out the pick-up line. Sometimes it works, and sometimes it doesn't. Women on the other hand, play a whole different game. Sometimes it seems as if our entire existence is based on impressing a guy. And it's exhausting. We don't think about it often (or we argue that we're doing these things for ourselves as much as for the men), but when you stop and take notice of all the things we do to woo the gentlemen, well, it's absurd.
There are certain things that automatically attract a woman to a man, and some of these things are so important that they make up the type of guys women can’t resist. Here are five of them. Guys, see which one (or ones, for that matter) fit you. If any of these don’t, have no fear because it all goes back to preferences. You might have something that makes you truly, charmingly unique, or you may have a combination of all of these.
Essentially there are two types of people in this world. There are those who believe image is everything and those who throw on a shirt from the floor and get on with their day. Can you guess which group is more likely to be single? Okay, there are some blessed freaks of nature that spend virtually no time thinking about how they present themselves to the world yet always manage to look fabulous-- and be taken-- but for the rest of us, image matters--a lot.
