Any ladies ever get a Brazilian?

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.

Re: Any ladies ever get a Brazilian?

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.

Re: Any ladies ever get a Brazilian?

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.

Re: Any ladies ever get a Brazilian?

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!

Bleach? Your anus? Has porn conditioned everyone to think we have to bleach that too?

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...

Re: Any ladies ever get a Brazilian?

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.

Re: Any ladies ever get a Brazilian?

I trim my pubes and shave my balls and *****, if you must know.

It feels cool and clean.
