NJ considers ban on bare-it-all 'Brazilian' wax

New Jersey is drawing the line when it comes to bikini waxing.

The state Board of Cosmetology and Hairstyling is moving toward a ban on genital waxing altogether after two women reported being injured in their quest for a smooth bikini line.

Both women were hospitalized for infections following so-called "Brazilian" bikini waxes; one of the women has filed a lawsuit, according to Jeff Lamm, a spokesman for New Jersey's Division of Consumer Affairs, which oversees the cosmetology board.

Technically, genital waxing has never been allowed — only the face, neck, abdomen, legs and arms are permitted — but because bare-it-all "Brazilians" weren't specifically banned, state regulators haven't enforced the law.

"The genital area is not part of the abdomen or legs as some might assume," Lamm said.

It’s a question of taste, I suppose.

A somewhat interesting thing about the Brazilian Wax phenomena is, why did pubic hair go out of style? As I understand it, even the back yard is landscaped.

Why put yourself through the pain? What is the gain?

I'm afraid that this is not the appropriate forum for that discussion ....

You remember a time where it was stylish for girls NOT to "landscape"?

I've been around for more than half a century... you must be a bit older than that.

BTW "Brazilian" does NOT mean completely shaved.

That's the secret.

Anytime you hear news like this, look who stands to benefit.
Bush doctors?

Great another example of BDS... It’s Bush’s fault!

I have no clue. I understand the need for a trim when wearing a swimsuit but to strip yourself bald so that you resemble a prepubescent female is a bit odd. Even stranger is when males do it.

I am sure you do good work, but I don’t have any problems with my body hair. I just wish there was more on my head.
