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

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

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.

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.

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

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.

I’m sure it’s an overreach (we’re talking about NJ government, after all), but what they’re talking about isn’t just the normal “bikini area”, but the actual genital area which has a very different type of skin. I would assume that the ratio of actual injuries to reported injuries is VERY low.

The reporting mechanism was presumably via doctors who saw these women when they were hospitalized for treatment for their injuries — most people who got minor burns or infections this way wouldn’t require hospitalization, and if they just saw a doctor in a private office, it would likely go unreported, unless the patient expressly gave permission. My guess is that the injuries involved burns to mucus membranes, which would be very prone to infection. If I was a doctor and saw an injury like that, in a patient who said it had be inflicted by a commercial cosmetology business, I’d definitely get on the phone to some authorities.

The state is not talking about banning ordinary “bikini waxing”, but just that which extends into the actual genital area. Maybe not a bad idea. Certainly not a bad idea to ban it from being done on minors, and I’m sure quite a bit of it IS being done on minors. Not only should minors be protected from their own stupidity, but they are notoriously unwise when it comes to telling an adult when something like this (even if done with parental knowledge and reluctant permission) goes terribly wrong. A sixteen year old girl who begged her mother to let her have this done, is more likely to keep it to herself when a serious infection results, than to say “Hey mom, come have a look my vagina — do you think I need to go to the doctor?”. I remember a story of a teenage girl who got her tongue pierced (her parents knew at least right afterwards, though I don’t recall if they’d reluctantly agreed in advance to allow it) — she didn’t want to admit to her parents that it had been a really stupid idea, and so she kept it to herself as the infection got worse and worse — by the time it got so bad that she admitted she needed medical attention, it was too late and she died.

Sigh, I see a rash of back alley bikini waxes in the near future.

In this case, wouldn't they be front alley bikini waxes?

(Wait, did I type that out loud?)

I’m with you. How we came to a point where “feminine” means plucked, waxed, and painted so as to not even resemble the model nature intended is beyond me.

I watched 1984 the other day, I had forgotten about the female full frontal. I almost barfed! Then I thought, now I remember why it was called beaver. Anyway, I’m all for waxing!

If one has experience in both worlds, hairy vs bare, bare is the only choice. One can never go back.

Yes, results that your g/f or wife look like they haven’t begun puberty, yet. Nasty.

I see nothing “gross” about it FWIW...

I agree, the full frontal view of a nude woman with hair is not gross but sexy. I am a man and love women, I freely confess this of my own free will.

OTH, women who want to keep a bikini line hair free have every right to do so and the government should stick to things they have the constitutional power to do, and quit trying to regulate all aspects of our lives.

Even stranger is when males do it.

I'd wager most men who do it are looking for the appearance of enhanced length.

In other words, a 30' tree surrounded by 10' bushes looks a lot shorter than a 25' tree in an open field. LOL

To each his/her own, I suppose. I don’t need “Welcome to the Jungle” playing in my head when getting involved in certain activities, nor do I enjoy spontaneous surprise flossing. And stubble is inappropriate for anyone involved in interpersonal contact. Smooth and soft is a real good thing. No making out with Bluto, thankyouverymuch.

A gorilla is one thing, but I was raised on the sexy women in the ‘70s Playboys. But gradually, over time, I saw them devolve from the upside down pyramids to rectangles to landing strips to Hitler moustaches to nada. I was like, “WTF ?!?” It wasn’t sexy. It was creepy and made women look like little girls. Bald ain’t beautiful and it remains a major visceral turn-off for me (just about tied with tattooes on the fairer sex). Besides, from a practical standpoint, it also serves a purpose for cutting down on infections.
