All in the name of research, my friends! I’m getting a Brazilian wax for the first time!
I have wanted to write about this waxing procedure. I figured if I’m going to write about it, I should be able to offer you a first-hand account.
I am well aware there are people in both camps about a Brazilian wax. Some people love it and see lots of benefits to it, whereas other people think it is wrong or unnecessary.
I just see it as a personal choice. I wouldn’t devote even an ounce of energy to fiercely debating it one way or the other, but I have met people who do have strong opinions about this.
As for me, I want to give it a try.
Not only do I want to get the low down on this waxing experience, but I also want to know what sex feels like for me and my husband after I have it done.
I was at a social gathering one evening a few years back, and a couple of gals and I struck up a conversation about sex (imagine that?!). One of the women told me she had a Brazilian wax, and as we were chatting about this, her husband walked up. She glanced at him and said, “Hey babe, tell them what you thought about sex after I had the Brazilian!”
Let’s just say this man’s eyes lit up big time and he had a frisky little smile. I’ve never forgotten the look on his face. Plus, his wife didn’t recoil as she thought back on what it was like to actually have it done, so that’s encouraging. I hear they are quite painful.
I was reflecting on this conversation recently and I admit it inspired me to give it a try! I also have heard Brazilian waxing is becoming more popular among 20-somethings, so that piqued my curiosity. Instead of striking up a conversation about Brazilian waxing with random 20-somethings, I thought it would be better to dive in myself and get it done.
Plus, the older I get, the more inspired I am to embrace new experiences. Yeah, I know. Of all the new experiences I could embrace, this is on my list?!
So I called and made the appointment.
But I have a few days till then, so I am seeking any tips any of you may have for me.
If you have had a Brazilian wax, what do you think I need to know about my first time doing this?
