Brazilian Grooming Trend Popular With Young Girls Last Edited: Tuesday, 22 Jul 2008, 11:41 PM EDT Created: Tuesday, 22 Jul 2008, 11:41 PM EDT
On the scale of uncomfortable subjects, this story is off the charts, but it's extremely important for all parents to hear. Fox 8's Suzanne Stratford has news about a Brazilian grooming trend that young girls are having done.
Must be Sweeps Week.
No thanks. My daughter is a Cosmetologist and I’m well aware what a Brazilian” is. Oddly enough, it’s the older women who request this service, in my daughter’s salon.
>>>extremely important for all parents to hear.
It’s hardly THAT urgent. Hair styles come and go, even there. Better the girls get wax then that they get tattoos.
Lots of “white tigers” in Cleveland? I’m headin’ to Chinatown right now for some Dim Sum. I’ll keep my eyes open for you all!
Sounds like they’re responding to the Andrew Dice Clay version of “Mary Mary, Quite Contrary”...if you haven’t heard the rest of the poem, you wouldn’t want to anyway.
This trend just continues the sexualization of young girls...
Most young guys now think it’s cool to get their upper body waxed....
On the other end of the scale.....
When I go to the beach with my wife and we walk down the beach hand in hand, people come up to her and ask if they can feed her pet gorilla.... :^)
Another thing we can thank Lindsay Lohan et al for. They wax it, then they flash it to the paparazzi.
The slutting of America continues apace. From tramp stamps to pube waxing to rainbow wristbands. American girls who once emulated women of character now want to be whores and porn stars.
No grass on the infield?
I went into a drug store around memorial day, and right as I walked in there was large display of hair removal products for women.
I do think it’s silly for an 11 year old to do it. Once they hit an appropriate age to make personal decisions of that nature, then they can do want they want.
This thread is useless without pictures?
How will you be able to tell if the carpet matches the drapes?
The artical is about girls as young as 11 years old!
Waxing is expensive. Where do 11 year olds get the money? Perhaps if their allowances were enough for a candy bar and a movie ticket, it wouldn’t be happening.
The bald guys get cheaper haircuts?
In many communities you can get cited for not mowing the lawn.
You mark my words, 10 years from now they will be smoking reefer cugarettes
My Thoughts exactly.........
The critics back then were proved correct - society has certainly continued to go downhill since the flapper era.
In my town there are mother-daughter outings to get waxed.
A 23 y.o. girl told me, “My boyfriend says guys don’t really like it when girls aren’t waxed.”
It is so sad to see these girls having to bring their privates up to public standards in order to be attractive enough to have a sexual relationship with, so that, maybe, he’ll fall in love her. So that maybe, some day, someone will love her enough to marry her.
I haven’t laughed this hard in a long time!
I can’t help but think, on some level, this doesn’t have something to do with the confusion that exists nowadays with children as sex objects.
It’s children who don’t have pubic hair. To remove it - well, there are all sorts of implications, and I guess for many people it’s nothing more than a preference. But I think there is more to it, in many cases.
I know. I am amazed the wild excesses of the 1950s have been exceeded
Well it may ‘slow down’ the passing of crabs???
Try conjuring up a picture of a 50 something who has had the ‘treatment’.
Better yet, DON’T CONJURE IT UP.... <: <: <:
You are comparing Flapper Era women to girls today, as young as 11, giving oral sex without even knowing a boys' name, wearing wristbands with color codes of what acts they will perform, getting tatoos on their ass, shaving their pubes, and having sex for cash in vans for internet porn sites?
You got that right! I also can’t help thinking of the itch factor, as it grows back.
Now get over here and clean off my monitor.
ROTFLMAO at your cartoon.
Dare I say... blame Bush?
I am all for hair removal, but not in pre-teens.
I never really understood this trend. We have body hair - it’s part of being human - both for men and women.
While I have no issue with some sort of grooming, it seems that it’s become an almost cult-like fad these days. Especially for men, but women as well.
“Guys” are all different.
Honestly, the waxed thing doesn’t do much for me in the “Brazilian” sense...granted I’m a married man, and it would be up to my wife if she wanted to do it, but given a choice, it doesn’t do much for me.
I know an OB-GYN who is seeing a rise in stubborn bacterial infections in the groin area from shaving for those who can’t afford/don’t want to pay the money for waxing.
Perhaps this is getting too deep for FR...but even as recently as my middle and high school years (early/mid 90s) the appearance of pubic hair was a “rite of passage” for kids...boys especially but girls too.
Now, they rip it off with hot wax? Sheesh.
I must be too old fashioned (or just plain too old) but I prefer au naturale.
Otherwise I have a creepy feeling that that I'm either playing (not that I ever did that!) with a doll, or she's just plain too young to even think about, let alone touch.
Oh, the times; how they be a-changin'!
Here’s my take, as a 30-something, married woman. As a pre-teen girl, me and my friends anxiously awaited the day we hit puberty. The second we did and had anything at all to shave, we did. It had nothing at all to do with sex in our minds, it was just what women did, and we wanted to emulate women.
Did I mention I went to a Catholic school?
And Brazilians rock!
So I did.
Excuse me now.
I need to go bleach my eyes...
Bat jam gai?
