Taking notes while Lara Olsha gives me my first ever Brazilian via the sugaring process provides distraction from the pain.
Big breath in, blow out really hard.
I'm not gonna even kid with you. Nothing short of several shots of liquor is going to numb the pain. But because the goopy, baseball-size, all-natural mixture -- sugar, lemon and guar gum -- is at room temperature, it doesn't burn. Without using strips, the thick honeylike substance used in sugaring pulls at the hair, but not the skin. Olsha is also molding it and then pulling in the direction the hair grows, so it is less painful than I expected. And she's fast, merciful God. Speed is salvation in these types of things.

Vanity, thy name art woman and man. Idiotic in my view. Why is our society allowing a bunch of gays to dictate style to both sexes?
While I’m in no way against a bit of trimming and grooming here and there, I have yet to embrace or understand this out and out obsession with ripping the hairs out of every part of the body south of the eyebrows these days.
Soon enough we’ll be considered “abnormal” if we have eyebrows. And I say that as a guy!
I have eyebrow and am considered "abnormal." And I say that as a caveman!
Next time do a little research first, OK?
Oh, I’m no au naturel myself but enough is enough. The trend now is that everyone look like a prepubescent boy or at least unisexual with men having breasts (ok pecs) and women having none due to emaciation and everyone absolutely hairless with a few thousand ingrown hairs to bother them. I sometimes wonder if our country went through some prolonged national crisis where salon treatments weren’t available, how would half the population look in a month or so? Imagine no botox, no waxing or dying—how many people would go into suicidal depression knowing it was just their natural selves coming into view finally?
I was at the drug store yesterday getting some aftershave and noticed a whole slew of hair removal products for men. I’m almost certain one of them was for your face (Nair for men?) and it got me wondering about how well it would work compared to shaving. Don’t guess any Freeper men have any experiences...
Am I the ONLY one that likes that new show?
I resisted using it for the longest time, but succumbed one day.
Hey, sometimes a man just likes to feel pretty.
As I said...a personal desire to do grooming is one thing...it’s the OBSESSION with it that bothers me.
The feeling that this trend (thanks, in part, to the gay culture and TV shows like Sluts and the City...er...I mean Sex and the City) has evolved from simply a cosmetic preference to a “need” to where if you don’t do it you’re some cavewoman/caveman hippie freak or something is what irks me about it. If you want to do it, great, go for it. It’s this societal attitude that you “must” do it or be shunned as “dirty” or “retro” or whatever.
Get out of the salon and on a treadmill!
I haven't "advanced" beyond badger brushes with soap and a traditional straight razor, so the answer for me is ... no.
Why? Not “why post it”, but why do people do it?
