Sounds like it went pretty good over all…

My husband doesn’t mind my pubic hair, in fact both he and I would rather that I don’t wax completely…  friction would kill!

congrats on making it through your first time.  the first time is always the worse.  It sounds to me like you waxer wasn’t very experienced if she had to go over the same spot more than once.  That’s dangerous as it can tear off top skin layers and cause infections.  Next time look for someone else.

I get brazillians regularly and I love it.  I don’t do it for FH, I do it for myself.  I just feel so much cleaner and lighter when I have everything waxed off.  But this is definitely a personal preference so to each her own.

I’m w/ Meowkers…although the hubs likes the brazillian, I love how much cleaner I feel when I get one.  I was super nervous the first time I went to get one (didn’t take any advil or anything), and then when it was all over, I was like, “Seriously?  That’s it?  THAT’S what women cry and moan about?”  lol  But in general, I tend to have a very high pain tolerance, so that could be why it wasn’t that big of deal.

I’m totally with you!  I think it’s weird when I see myself like that…I go back and forth, and sometimes I have hair there and sometimes I don’t.  I have serious issues with the idea that THAT’S the most pleasing thing for men visually…that’s a little creepy to me.  I’ve been told it’s not just the visual, there’s a physical appeal to it as well….so that makes me feel a little better.  Sigh, I’m conflicted.  But I’m off topic!

I’m very glad that it wasn’t as bad as you thought it was going to be!  They’ve never gotten any better for me, but I think it’s just because I have super sensitive skin to begin with.  I get a wax and spend the next day with an ice pack on my crotch.  Charming, I know.

Good for you!! I LOVE them and will go through the pain to be hair free and clean, plus the boy likes it 😉 The pain and hair regrowth gets better each time you go so keep it up!! Plus, the sex is better without the hair because of the sensitivity, so to me, that’s a good reason to keep doing it, just sayin… 🙂

nlmiele – I had my first bikini wax 2 weeks ago and was super nervous, but my lady was super nice and gave me pointers as we went along. The growing out part isn’t bad at all and definitely don’t have that insane itch that’s associated with shaving! I too am freaked out by the brazilian, but I’m doing a boudoir session so I’ll have to do it that ONE time. Otherwise, I think I’m going to stick to my bikini wax!

I only do it someitmes, because it’s so darn expensive (average $80) and the place that I went to didn’t get all the hair off either. So I’m in the middle of looking for a new place to go to.

I love it, for myself.. It feels more clean – not that I’m gross otherwise; but it feels better!

Hubs likes it too, not too much for the looks, but for how it feels esp (sorry TMI) with oral “activities” down there… Hair in the mouth is not so cool.. I would feel very self concsious letting him go there otherwise.

I’m used to the look now, and can’t even remember what it looked like before…
mind you, I started shaving for cleanliness while I was still going through puberty and years before I was even sexually active; then waxing and eventually decided I didn’t want the trouble anymore so I just finished the brazilian laser…

You go girl! I SWEAR by waxing.

It has nothing to do with Mr. Seashell (though he’s not complaining), I do it for me.

I too feel a LOT cleaner when I’m all waxed (brazilian). Persian ladies are better at doing brazilian, so definitely search for one of them and you’ll feel a lot less pain.

Here’s a question…after you get it done, how long is it before you can go swimming? Keep in mind I’m not worried about a chlorine pool, but a salt water pool. I’ve noticed that I can’t shave less than 24 hours in advance or else it hurts, bad.
