Holiday Vacation and the Yearly Need for Grooming

There is quite a debate out there about Brazilian bikini waxing...just ask Suzanne Reisman, whose blog, CUSS and other rants, is devoted to the subject. I for one, am all for waxing (at least for adult women deciding to take it off)...and when it's time for vacation, especially those where bathing suits are an evil necessity, waxing becomes essential.

Pubic grooming (or scalping as I sometimes refer to it) is absolutely a personal choice. And I am all for women who decide to keep their hair as nature intended for personal (or political) reasons. There are partners out there who love a variety of grooming techniques and styles - some like the bush, some like the landing strip, some like the Barbie doll look of no hair whatsoever (though this last  option I will say sometimes freaks me out a bit).

If you choose to Brazilian, the key is finding a person who does it quickly and as painless as possible (hard wax is the trick here - hard wax equals a lot less pain). I am a firm believer in that people should try things (harmless, consensual, safe things) at least once to see what they are like. Then we can feel free to critique all we want. Needless to say, I think that bikini waxing just allows us to play with our more "secret" identities - who knows what someone will find below our panties. And sometimes, we can even surprise ourselves with what we are willing to try.

And by the way...quid pro quo...our men can do it too. More on that another time.

And shave before you wax. The longer the hair, the more it hurts...
