hey
ok, i hope this post is in the right place - if not im sorry.
ok, well im goin abroad for a week with my b/f in a few months+dont wana have to shave at all. i sometimes get shaving rash, which wouldn't look good with a bikini! i was thinking about a brazilian wax (hope that's the right one, ive heard of it) i want my legs, underarms, and parts of my 'bits' done.
ive never been waxed b4, so im wondering:
*exactly how painful is it?? (e.g. is it more painful than having your BCG in junior school?)
*how long does it take?
*how much is it approximately?
*could i have it done as i suffer from sensitive skin?
*do women do it, as i dont really want some guy waxing my bits, lol

thanking u all in advance
xx

    You can usually ask for a woman to do it

    Not from personal experience but a good friend of mine had it done as a valentines day present for her boyfriend. She said afterwards that she didn't realise it was possible to go through that amount of pain. I don't know how long it took. It cost her 18 pounds. It was done by a very nice lady, not a man. Both her and her boyfriend thought she looked like a plucked chicken afterwards tho.

    I have been getting a full Brazilian wax for about 3 years. The first couple times I got it, it really hurt like a bitch. I was almost in tears. :( But after getting it done so much, my hair grows alot slower so I dont have to get it done as much AND it doesn't hurt to get it done anymore. I pay $40 dollars to get mine. I would love to do it myself but I would keep chickening out. The first few times I got it done, I was a little embarassed because I hardly knew the lady and she was seeing my crotch! :eek: But I figured since she saw everyone's bits all day long, it wasn't a big deal that she saw mine. Like everyone else said, you can ask to get a woman. It's good to tell them that because they want you to be as comfortable as possible. When you get it done, just keep thinking of how great it's going to look. I promise from years of experience, it's totally worth it ;)
