No, this is not a subject in any way related to the one Arwen wrote about a few days ago.
This is a post about a bikini wax. And not just any bikini wax, a brazilian bikini wax. That’s where instead of just waxing the hair off that would appear on the outside of a typical bathing suit bottom, they take all the hair off between your navel and the top of your ass crack, save for a landing strip or small triangle if you want one. I am now one hundred and ten percent convinced that the entire country of Brazil is a nation of Massochistic Sadists who like nothing more than to torture their citizens in the name of good swimwear.
That being said though, the most painful part of it was the part where a traditional bikini wax would be done anyway – so I’m glad I decided to go whole hog and just get it all done. So maybe those Brazilians are onto something afterall.
In any case, if you ever wanted to know where to go, see Parvin at New Mondo salon. She’s all business (as I prefer things to be with people who are not in my intimate circle while they’re accessing my special places) and really made me feel comfortable – which is not an easy thing to do while inflicting pain on someone as they’ve got their knees around their ears (unless they showed up expressly for that purpose). We discussed my piercing, the weather, and she gave me the sage advice that I should take it easy today, and not let my boyfriend anywhere near it until he takes me out for dinner and a night on the town 🙂
It’s still sore and ouchy at this point (2 hours after it was done) but again, worst in the areas where you’d get a regular bikini wax anyway. I might report again later if I’m not dead asleep.
And no, you can not see, and there will be no pictures.
UPDATE: 8:33pm – had an epsom salts bath – still sore and achey, but less picky and sticky. We’ll see how it is in the morning.
