I have thought about doing this, cause I know H2B would love it... but I am just not comfortable with the idea of a stranger seeing it all on display like that. Pap smears and the like are bad enough!!

Hi there,

All I can say is no, I wont go the whole way with the waxing, but I dont mind a bit off the sides, lol, but brazillian I can do without.

One thing to remember if you havent ever had it done before, dont do it right before the wedding for the first time!! If you have an allergy to the wax imagine who wont be consumating their marriage on the wedding night, a rash or worse down yonder would be torturous! Also, you can come out in red spots that dont go away til the hair grows back, ingrown hairs, you name it, so make sure you test it out as far from the wedding as you can, as you dont want to be uncomfortable down below for the wedding and honeymoon!

I used to wax people for a living, was a senior beauty therapist, but whilst that is no longer my career of choice, I do still have a fair idea about the waxing process. When I was doing it there were hardly any requests for brazillian, it hadnt become fully popular at that stage.

The first time i got waxed was when i was pregnant and the girl was laughing so hard because my baby kept kicking and she could see my belly move... the same girl has done all my waxing ever since then... She gives me a disposable g-string to wear which i just pull to the side when i need to... i dont lay in strange positions just flat on my back with one leg tilted to the side! easy!

When H2B and I first got together, I thought that it might be a good idea to surprise him with it, after he mentioned it once and offered to shave FOR me - Hell no way was that going to happen, so it took me about 3 weeks to pluck up the courage to make the appointment, I was so scared about the possible pain! Once I got there, my beautician asked if this was the first time, and I said yes - she told me that there was nothing to worry about - I was Number 8 for the day that she had done - and it was only 11.30am! It did not hurt at all compared to what I had prepared myself for, so now I am a regular - every four weeks exactly! It costs about $35 in my salon in Wagga, things are cheaper out here in the sticks....

oh, and Glenn LOVES it.

I don't get why so many people want to do it, its so unnatural. But I suppose we remove leg and underarm hair as a social norm. I hope brazillians don't become the norm as pain and discomfort should not be a part of our everyday lives.

I get a XXX (little strip left behind) done quite regularly - the first few times can be...interesting!....but worth it all the same. I've gone to 2 diff places...one did do all the bizarre positions, the one I go to now doesn't need you to do so many weird possies. However just remember, the girl waxing you sees so many people in a day, that she'd be so blase about your bits and the possie your in. And it really is all over in 15 mins....just don't do what I did last time and go for a run afterwards - at least have a shower and wash any left over wax off! (end up with really bad rash in embarrasing place due to friction on skin where there was still some wax left...ouch!!) unsure.gif

If your game then highly recommend it....I'm hooked!

I'm getting it done but then I've been doing it for years so it's not a big thing for me, that being said I'm not sure 3 weeks before your wedding is the best time to experiment with a new hairstyle, the first time can be a little painful and you'll be sore for a few days. Ultimately it's your body and if you don't feel comfortable don't do it.

When I got my 1st one done it didn't hurt at all during or afterwards. Everyone has different pain thresholds though so just because it hurts for one doesn't mean it will for another and vice versa.

Can someone please explain what all the X's mean? I'm assuming that 4 X's mean the whole lot comes off?

I asked my friend who had it done if it hurt and she has had a baby and said it hurt her worse than having a baby!

So I'm not so sure now!
