Manscaping the Manzilian - Part One

Years ago, when my husband and I first began dating, he made the mistake of telling his mother that I did brazilian bikini waxing. He likewise failed to leave out a detail I certainly would have, that I also do male bikini waxing.

My mother in law is in her sixties and completely removed from the generation of women and men who do any sort of pubic gentrification, much less use hot wax to take it all off. I will never forget, though she doesn’t know I know, when she expressed concern to my husband, then boyfriend, that there was ‘funny business’ going on at the 'spa'. Yes, my mother in law thought I was making my living giving reach-arounds or worse.

I get asked all the time by female clients if it's ever weird doing what I do. I'll tell you what I tell them. Waxing a vagina is no different for me than waxing an underarm, or a leg, or an upper lip. I'm very matter of fact about it because I've done it thousands of times.

In fact, I feel a sense of pride because there are very few people who are as good at this service as I am. Maybe it's because I'm borderline OCD and I am an anal-retentive, perfectionist Virgo, but when the ladies leave my shop, they look pretty.

I also love my brazilian wax clients because they are a loyal bunch. You wouldn't try a new gynocologist because you saw a 15% off coupon in the newspaper right? These clients are the reason I'm recession-proof. With the economic downturn, I've seen a big decline in purely feel good services like massages, wraps, relaxation facials and the like. But my girls who like it smooth as a baby, they keep coming back no matter how slim the pocketbook gets, because it's part of what they consider their necessary maintenance.

I also like these clients because save for a few of them, they are open, wicked and funny- right up my alley(no pun intended). The occasion lends itself to humor because when you're letting it all hang out, there's very little left that's off limits as far as conversation goes. So no, it's never weird or awkward when I'm waxing a girl.

Here is a sampling(accurate I might add) of women getting waxed.

My male clients, however, are a mixed bag.

Will be continued in Part 2

Well, you've certainly piqued my interest. Bring on Part 2...

OK. So about five years ago, a college age babysitter told a group of us that the dudes in her school were shaving it all off to enhance the package. I laughed my ass off naturally, and the dudes in the crowd freaked out the way dudes do.

And here you are about to tell me that this shit is not only for reals but you have first hand knowledge?

Oh my bikini area, I am totally digging this.

I love the woman that said she had it done "once by her boyfriend by accident" WTF kind of kinky shit is that? So funny. I love stories about waxing because I´m kind of obsessed with getting waxed.

I've had the underarm wax and the leg wax, but not the bikini. All those screams don't help .. but I'd still kind of like to get it done.

It's just a question of courage, right?

If you would have had this post on front when AAYSR reviewed you, I can nearly guarantee that they would have fucking loved you.

I think it's tremendously funny that my word verification for this comment begins with the letters KY today.

A Manzilian, eh? I don't think I'd be a fan. I like a bit of a nest for the package, you know?

Now that was hilarious! Sorry ladies . . .

I loved the requisite hair tossing before each client laid back on the table.

As one who has had a wax, to tame my unibrow, all I can say it, "Yeeoww!"
