I have never waxed in the south pole area. I have always shaved. Its an annoying thing to have to do, but I like to have things look a certain way so I put up with it. Is waxing there as painful as it sounds? I am especially curious about a brazilian. Is it only painful the first time and then you get used to it? Or is it always horrible?

Also, how do you ladies deal with just exposing the um.... "peach" to a complete stranger? I mean I wouldnt even know what kind of conversation to have.

"Hey stylist, nice to meet you. Here's my vagina, make it look beautiful"
I mean I have a pretty immature sense of humor sometimes and I would like to think I wouldnt giggle or snort with laughter but I can totally see myself making vagina jokes or something.

Is it even worth it to wax anything south of the border? I can deal with shaving but the idea that I could just walk out with all of that work done without having to perform a balancing act in the tub is appealing.

Thoughts?

Don't forget to wax and bleach that inner badonkadonk as well! Visually... one place leads to the next.

I never did, but I know women who do it monthly and they say it always hurts like hell. However the ladies at the salon are used to it: getting cursed, hearing insults, having they clients cry, yell etc. Also, they are used to seeing naked body parts, so there's absolutely no reason for embarrassment. The biggest inconvenient is that you can't wax unless your hair has re-grown to a certain length. I hear there is less irritation than shaving as well and less itching. If you have high pain tolerance, it's ok, if not, think about it well. Personally I wouldn't do it for the world, since I absolutely hate pain.

I've had a bikini wax, but anything more than that I do myself at home. Just like plucking your eyebrows, or waxing anything else, it stops hurting after a few times, and it sure as heck is less ugly as it grows out. Lasts longer, too. My advice, though, start small. Do the bikini waxing first until it stops hurting, then work your way in.

I don't usually think twice about exposing parts of my body to professionals who see those parts on lots of other people. Parts is parts.

alrighty .... I'll throw my two cents in ... I have and the shocking part for me was when she said ROLL OVER ... um roll over? you're going to wax what? oh you get every last hair? it really isn't as bad as you'd think ...
try it, if you like it, then go for Laser removal!

To the OP: Brazilians always hurt me, but not as bad as some say. The end result is worth it. The embarrassment is just something you deal with. Try to make conversation with the waxer. It only takes 15 minutes or so...

You could always try just a bikini wax first - you keep your underwear on for that (or they might give you disposable ones) & they just pull up the sides. Or I had a French bikini wax once, that was supposedly between a regular bikini & a Brazilian (though I didn't notice much difference).

I've heard that it hurts worse if they use wax with strips of cloth, instead of the wax they just pull off (hard wax?). One place I went used the strips of cloth & it didn't seem to hurt worse, but it also didn't seem to get all the hair off in the places she was waxing.

I don't think it's agonizingly painful. It hurts, but the pain disappears quickly. But then, maybe there are more sensitive areas that are done in a Brazilian.

I get bikini waxes frequently and have gotten full Brazilians a few times and it definitely hurts every single time you do it! Haha, but after the first couple of times you know what kind of pain to expect and you can mentally prepare yourself for it. For me, the most painful part is getting the "landing strip area" waxed. It's such a small area but it packs a wallop! ;D

If you are considering it, be sure to find a place and a technician that you trust. I can't stress this enough! It'll make your experience much more pleasant if you do some research and cultivate a rapport with someone. I personally go to a salon/spa and the woman I see has been waxing my eyebrows for years (the dreadful caterpillars, that they are...she's so brave) I trust her and her alone with my hair removal. One day we got to talking about bikini waxes and she said that it was one of the services that she offered and from that moment I knew I'd be flashing her the goods in the next couple of months! Haha, so if you have a particular brow person that you go to/trust, I suggest just asking them! If they don't do it themselves, I'm sure they can recommend someone who will do a great job.

If modesty is an issue for you, many places offer a paper thong that the technician will move around while working on certain spots so you're never just wafting in the breeze and you can still have the barrier that makes a lot of people feel more comfortable.

The embarrassment part of the experience is definitely the most difficult to overcome, at least for me. While it is the most difficult issue, it's also the most one-sided issue that you'll face. Your technician won't be embarrassed or awkward about it, if anything she'll makes jokes and playful conversation to help you relax. They've probably seen more ladybits in the last month than most people will ever see in their lives. They'll be the opposite of embarrassed, in fact! She'll be throwing your legs over her shoulder to get a better angle, flip you over and ask you to "spread your cheeks", flip you back over to pluck any stray hairs, and then moisturize you to help with sensitivity. And it'll be such a whirlwind of silly positions and laughter, you won't have time to be embarrassed! It'll all be over so quickly and then you'll get to see your brand new, sparkling, and smooth bikini area that it'll all be worth it. It truly will!

Imagine that confidence and pep in your step that you get from wearing a new set of matching underwear from Victoria's Secret (or wherever!) now multiply that to the tenth power! This is the extra confidence that your new "hair do" can give you, haha! If you're not trying for an S.O., then try it for yourself. I've had very good results!

PS: Be sure to wear so fluffy, warm, fun socks during your waxing! Cold feet can make this feel clinical and uncomfortable, but warm feet can help you relax.

I've done it a few times, and once place in particular hurt less than others. When I asked about it, the technician, who also happened to be the owner, told me the quality of the wax made a difference?? I'm not sure if that was it or a combination of wax and technique, but I would only go to that salon for Brazilians from that point on! It really wasn't much more than slightly uncomfortable, not painful at all. So, research the hell out of salons before you go. I also always take Advil beforehand. Shot of tequila probably wouldn't hurt either. :)

I wish I had known some are better than others. It hurt really bad! Hold your breathe, hold on tight, and just get it over with type of pain.

I would advise getting it done once, and then maintain it afterwards by yourself.

Buy some "no scream cream"... numbs your skin pretty good. You can snap yourself hard enough with a rubber band to get a bruise & your skin won't feel it. Doesn't help more than skin deep but it does wonders. Bought mine on Amazon.;)

Here is a little hiccup for me. My stylist who rocks my awesome perfect hair and blonde eyebrows also is my neighbor and also is my close friend. I dont even know how I could smile at the bus stop if the day before she was working on my vagina. Like
"hey did you sign that permission slip for the field trip?"
"hey hows that gorgeous vagina feeling today?"

I bikini wax myself and trim the rest very close. Parts are pleasantly more sensitive when there are fewer obstacles between "whatever" and your skin.

No, not yet. But here is a funny story and I give everyone permission to laugh,chuckle and commiserate with me. If it happened to someone else I would laugh too.


Did you do it, Sarah? I'm gonna try it this week. :faint:

So I am still too much of a baby to try waxing yet and I have this bikini hair cream hair remover that I have used from time to time.

Last week, the house was quiet and empty. Perfect time to work on my vagina right?
I applied the cream remover and set the timer for 7 minutes (this is the amount of time I always set it for and have never had problems)

The cream is meant to be applied-ahem- to the "frame work" surrounding the important bits(if that makes any sense). So when I do this I walk around in a longer t-shirt with nothing else. I got a phone call, painted my nails, surfed the web did some wash. Never heard the timer. 20 minutes later, OH SH*T! The cream! I ran to the timer and saw that there indeed was 7 minutes on it, but I never pressed start!
I run up to the bathroom and got in the tub with my wash cloth and looked down to see that all of the moving around caused me to smear the cream from the intended areas to other areas that were supposed to be left alone. I began to rinse and saw the destruction- It looked like those patches of earth you see in between patches of grass after a long hot summer, very spotty is putting mildly. I thought to myself:
"I need to do something drastic to avoid looking like my vagina has had chemo"
Sooooo, I had to remove all of the hair completely because there was no making this style look good. I just had to take it all off! Now, I have had the whole "wood floor" look before, so its not that, but the fact that I aimed for one particular kind of look and ended with more of a porn star look is what is the funny part.

Word to the wise:
When you have adhd and you attempt this kind of landscaping, remain in the bathroom, sit still and double check your timer!

-commence laughter now-seriously, I would laugh at me too, in fact I did.

I used to do the full Brazilian but now always got ingrowns from it. Now I get what's called the Extreme Bikini, which is a modified Brazilian - they do your back and sides but leave most of the front. I always feel like a have lost weight when I do this. :lol:

I used to get waxed, but then I found sugaring. Way better! Same principle, but no strips and the sugar hurts less. Google "body sugaring" in your area to see what's available, but I highly recommend it! It hurts at first, but I go every 6 weeks-ish and now it only really hurts on the top/front, more there than near the 'inner bits'. lol Great question! ;)

I was too nervous to go to a professional, so I gave myself a Brazilian with wax strips by Nads. It was difficult to get everything because the strips lose their stickiness fast. It actually didn't hurt as bad as I thought it would and the kit came with desensitizing wipes. I also wax the baby hairs off my face and THAT hurt much worse
. Some of the kits for face even have benzocaine as an ingredient in the wax because that area hurts so badly!

I am from another generation but even then, anything that caused pain, I avoided. Plucking eyebrows, hair removal cream, and electrolysis hair follicle removal. I tried all these things ONE time. Before my cancer, I shaved my legs, but after chemo, I celebrate any place I can grow hair because it's not growing on my head. So, I think I gone au natural --- no painful hair removal for me. Sometimes I think we are slaves to somebody else's idea of beauty. Chuck that.

OMGod. I guess I'm a prudish Scottish Presbyterian at heart. What's the point?


Censorship Rating: If you're under 18, or easily offended, please stop reading this and go find those pictures on your flash drive.

Full Brazilians (FBs) are Secret Women's Business. They've been doing this for a while, you know. Google: Duval La Naissance de Venus. However [sigh] it's out in the light now, so best we just discuss it like adults.

Please, any of you, feel free to send me a private message for the licentious funny story that goes with this post. I'm not putting it out in public. I am a prudish Church of England girl at heart. But we ain't talking about a girl's HEART, are we.

WHAT'S THE POINT? Daaaaarling!!


Let me just crank up the Marvin Gaye while I write this ... Where's McTavish when we need him? I'm sure there must be research on this.

So, my two bob's worth. Over the past twelve years I've been having a full brazillian done every six weeks. This covers a period in which my relationship status has included being married / separating / divorcing / six years retirement from dating / and then getting back on the bandwagon ... So, based on that, this is what I understand THE POINT to be:

* Full Brazilians (FBs) bring prudish Scottish Presbyterian men to their knees, licking their lips, mumbling incoherently about being a cunning linguistic. Glasgow lads meet you in Thailand, and later Bali, for golf holidays, and while they're paying homage to your putting ability, mumble bits of the Song of Songs, which is a nice touch.

* FBs bring out the" Me Tarzan, You Jane" in your average middle-class red-blooded suburban father of two. Especially the ones who profess to not care whether a girl has axillary or pubic hair. One finds oneself bent over the dining room chairs in indelicate poses.

* FBs transform the normal humdrum mechanics of a woman's life (like showering, and walking around in jeans) into an existential experience ... . Which in turn gives a woman a certain groove that heterosexual men can't help but respond to in very subtle ways. Like asking you out for drinks, when they're 20 years younger than you are. They know they shouldn't, they just can't help themselves.

* FBs inspire tantalising, exquisite trickery in blokes who you think Least Likely To Be Fantastic In The Sack. Suddenly they can curl their tongue, and speak fluent French. Who woulda thunk it?


SarahSweets, Girls, your vag is NOT a DIY project. One must refer to professionals. Feel free to go the chemist and buy some Angel Cream, it's an anaesthetic. Numbs everything from your mons to your spine. And yes, you want your C, your V, your A all done. Fabulous. After the first half dozen FBs, you get used to it, and the pay off is sensational. Just remember, Brazillian or no Brazillian, the most important thing you can do for your vag is pelvic floor exercises.

And you never know, you might get really lucky. The bloke who's having his way with you, might get the guts up to go have a BS&C, which is the double whammy, and then you might find yourself spending all afternoon with the curtains closed, messing about with Dark Side of the Moon on repeat. Of course I couldn't profess to that EVER having happened in my life, no, no, no, total presumption for any of you to think that I'm speaking from personal experience. What goes on tour ...

(As a note ... the orgasmic aria, in this YouTube video, cuts in at about 15min 30sec, and goes for about four minutes. That's always a bit of bedroom fun, seeing if he can make your toes curl in time to The Great Gig in The Sky. Laughing!)

A lot of people on here are saying it will hurt every time, but that was not my experience at all. The first time, only a few of the strips hurt- I'd say there were 3-5 bad ones out of maybe 20 strips? Tell the technician it's the first time for you; mine was very considerate and waxed smaller areas at a time to minimize pain. Then, the second time, my hair grew back quite sparsely and the waxing was painless. This might not happen so quickly with everyone, because I have kind of fine body hair I think, but it is well known that hair grows back less with each wax. If you commit to waxing and keep doing it regularly, it gets faster, easier and less painful.

With regards to its effect on men, it is absolutely delightful and oral feels better when you're super smooth. I make my boyfriend pay for mine because the rationale is, without him I would be content to shave and that's cheaper (also, why should I spend $60 on my vagina every 6 weeks when I only make $0.70 to every dollar a man does?). But I like the waxing better and if we broke up or he stopped caring, I might cough up for it myself.
