The Ultimate Hair Puller

Pulling hair was part of sister fights growing up. While she grabbed my arms and pushed me, I would grab a bunch of her brown hair and yank her mop hard, trying to get her to stop shoving me around. Then she would pull my hair. My big sister, Miss Piggy, was tough and mean and always won. I only bring up this memory because in preparation for my weekend away, I tried something new: a bikini wax.

I asked the eighty-pound Asian girl applying the burning wax to my tender skin if everyone yells. She replied in her broken English.

“No, most girl do (insert a wincing, close-eyed face here). Ony you scream.”

“Are you kidding me?”

This, dare I call it, beauty treatment, minimized any other hair pulling experience I’ve ever felt. It was THE ultimate hair puller. I don’t know why I did it because I always wear a bathing suit with a little skirt that hides the forest (which I do shave regularly).

Maybe curiosity got the best of me? Or, I wish to prove that beauty really is pain?

Most of my friends submit to a bikini wax regularly, yet not one warned me how painful it would be to have hot wax applied to the outside of my privates, then ripped off, over and over and over. It hurt like hell! And then to top it off, it looked like I had a raging case of poison ivy down there AND I had to pay hard-earned money for the mild torture.

This was my first and last bikini wax, at least stone sober. If I want to have my hair pulled I will go visit my sister.

Sorry, but this made me lol. I say 'sorry' because I am basically finding your agony funny.... But, in a nice way, you know.

I do not think I could ever have that done. Besides the fact some stranger would be looking at my privates. The mere idea of the kind of pain my LEGS feel while waxing and thinking about that kind of pain around that area... *gulp!*

I'm sorry you had a bad wax experience! I just had my first, and I'd definitely go back.
