Congratulations 🙂 Glad you had such a great experience. One piece of advice I’ll offer is that even within one salon, the pain caused can vary significantly depending on who’s doing the job. You were smart to give it a test run ahead of time, this way you know whether your skin will react poorly and how long you need to give yourself to recover.

hehe that’s great it went well! I agree with how important it is to get someone who knows what they are doing! I’ve waxed for 3 years now but recently went for my first brazillian… wasn’t toooo bad but I actually didn’t really like the final look. Bit too bare for me!!

My fin wants me to do it.  I thought about doing it for the wedding just to be a suprise for him…but it freaks me out.  I am so affriad of the pain and also very uncomfortable with other people seeing those areas of my body LOL.

@Nola: I understand how embarrassing it may seem, but in the end you won’t feel so bad anymore. The women who do the wax have seen it all…petite women, large women & everyone inbetween. Don’t be embarrassed 🙂

I have to be honest, my first time freaking hurt like NO OTHER. But I didn’t scream or cry, I just talked through the pain & even the girl doing it said I did very well for my first time. If you keep up w/ it & go like you should (every 6-8 weeks) the pain is less each time.

I heard a woman has not officially experienced good oral s*x unntil she gets a brazillian..I am mad scared though one girl I know said she was bleeding a little after having it done. I guess they were to rough wit the wax strips.

@pat291: The wax was probably too hot. Not cool!

If any first timers are considering it for their wedding, def. go “into training!”  After your first time you can end up with bad “chicken skin” but the more often you get it done, the easier it is and the less your skin reacts.  (In my experience.)  I’m addicted now!!

I have waxed myself a few times and did not enjoy, but now I just usually just shave it all off every so often.  For those who are regular waxers…you say that you get used to the pain, and I believe that.  I don’t have any sensitivity to eyebrow plucking, but I’ve been doing it since I was 8; I’m reminded when I groom FI’s unibrow (lol) that it actually hurts people to pluck when they’re not used to it! But I just wonder, do you feel like the persistent waxing and pain tolerance development has left you with lower sensitivity ‘down there’ overall?  Obviously not something I want.

I waxed for years and am currently undergoing laser hair removal. The pain from waxing is definitely bearable. The worst area for me was the flesh that sits right on the pubic bone. The area where most people leave landing strips and I know why. I double over in pain almost everytime it’s done.

The person waxing definitely makes a lot of difference and as others have said, they’ve seen it all so there is no need to feel embarassed. It is no different than going to a Gynecologist, but not invasive.

As for sensitivity, it doesn’t get painless over time, but your body gets used to the repetition so it becomes more bearable.
