Watch What A Bikini Wax Feels Like (For Those Of You Too Scared To Try)

Everyone is asking me what my recent bikini wax felt like, but honestly, it’s difficult to find the right words. Really, what words are there to describe the experience of having hot wax ripped off your vulva?

But a picture is worth a thousand words, so they say, and luckily for us, a reader sent me this YouTube video of her first bikini waxing. Don’t worry, you won’t see another lady’s vadge — just her OMFG-why-am-I-doing-this facial expressions and hear a pernicious riiiiiiip in the background. [YouTube] Keep reading »

Beach Bum Shows Off Their Lindsay Lohan Love

If you happen to be in New York City today and pass by the Beach Bum Tanning Salon at 239 7th Avenue, take note of their interesting bright orange accessory. The fake bake salon is showing their support and devotion for Lindsay Lohan — a valued longtime customer — by staging a protest and wrapping the store in an orange ribbon to speak out against her jail time. In addition to the solidarity ribbon, employees created homemade signs that read, “We love you Lindsay! Come home soon” to picket with during their “Free Lindsay” rally. Clearly, the business is missing her unwavering support (ahem, money) and those regular visits needed to keep up her perfect orange glow. But interestingly, she’s not the first starlet to gain support from Beach Bum during her time in lock-up, as Paris Hilton was the subject of the salon’s protest back in 2007. Poor Beach Bum. They’ve been the subject of two injustices this year: dealing with the tanning tax and losing out on two weeks of Lindsay’s visits. (Oh, and if you happen to pass by and snap a photo, {encode=”tips@thefrisky.com” title=”email it”} to us!) [Gawker] Keep reading »

Girl Talk: My First Bikini Wax

I’ve waxed my eyebrows. I’ve waxed my upper lip. But when it came to waxing my ladyparts, I passed. I checked out. I just chose to be a noncombatant. I removed excess hair on my eyebrows and on my upper lip because it embarrassed me. But did it make sense to be embarrassed — nay, to form an opinion at all — about a part of my body seen by no one but me? No, I decided, it didn’t. In fact, a woman’s vagina is so personal and so private that I thought it would be pretty un-feminist to feel shame that it didn’t look quote, unquote “pretty.” (And yes, I’ve seen Eve Ensler’s play “The Vagina Monologues,” like, eight times.) Besides, who would want to let an aesthetician down there with her tongue depressor dipped in hot wax? Surely someone of heartier stock than I.

Then I had my first bikini wax at age 26 and surprised myself by liking it. Keep reading »

Carbs Are The Secret To Angelina’s “Salt” Body

Forget what you thought you knew about carbs, because thanks to Angelina Jolie, they’re about to receive an infusion of popularity. For her latest film, “Salt,” the actress worked with trainer, Simon Crane, to get even more in shape, as if that were even possible. In between her five workouts a week, Angie carb-loaded her diet, ingesting five small meals a day which were a mix of 70 percent carbs and 30 percent protein! While most see carbs as the devil, they’re actually the solution to building muscle, and Angie’s physique is a clear indication of that. By combining strength training with fight exercises and avoiding cardio, Angelina built muscle and got leaner, but didn’t lose weight. Welcome back to the world of acceptance, carbs. Bring on the bread and cheese. [Marie Claire UK] Keep reading »
