What does the state of NJ care what people do to their pubic hair?

I have no personal interest in the genital waxing issue.

But why does the government care?

“He noted the procedure can be performed safely and recommended that the board consider a review of waxing procedure training.”

Did they think to add a study on this to the stimulus plan?

I wondered why it was ever considered. Would they try to ban all procedures that have ended in infections?

Only if the problem grows to become public hair... :)

I guess the legislators believe that this is a pubic safety issue.

Good for the men who love NJ women, bad for the machete industry that stood to have a huge boom in sales, for those adventerous enough to penetrate the deep forest growth.

I need to explore this situation ... in depth. Yes I know it can be a hairy situation but it simply screams for someone to take a clean look at it. It would be a real shame for it to end up in a cover-up when simple justice requires it to be shown in the bright light of day. Excuse me while I get started on my dedicated internet search ...

It's my dream to retire and open a little bikini waxing shop by the sea.

You have to read this! The bare truth about waxing!!

“...And that’s why ladies, take note that there is absolutely no excuse for you to be hairy this sizzling, sexy, summer season...”

What does the state of NJ care what people do to their pubic hair?

The action of consenting adults in private only applies to the members of the Lavender Mafia. Bikini waxing and prostitution are matters of public health, unlike all male bathhouses...

Like they would ever consider banning tattooing and piercing.

If infanticide under the name “abortion” is legal on the basis of “privacy” and a woman’s right to do with “her body” (and the symbiotic lifeform that is feeding from it) what she wants, then I fail to see how there can be ANY constitutional standing for a law against bikini waxing.

(and I just notice your pun)

Keep bikini waxing safe and legal (they no longer want abortion to be “rare” so why should grooming be restricted?).
