An interesting article out of Psychology Today about the fairly recent trend of bikini waxing and how it’s affecting male and female sexual relations. Sex therapist and psychiatrist Stephen Snyder, M.D. writes, “Among many young men that I see in treatment, the sight of a woman’s pubic hair produces the same revulsion that in my day might have greeted the sight of her armpit hair. Vulvar hair is regarded as unsightly — or even disgusting.” Yowza, seriously? I mean, in my years cavorting and conversating with the opposite sex, I have definitely noticed that dudes prefer some pubic grooming, with a solid percentage liking significant bush-wacking (landing strip, little triangle, etc.). Yes, there have definitely been a few dudes who liked a bald beav the most, but Snyder implies that men are increasingly preferring no hair whatsoever and find the presence of hair to be a complete turn-off. Please, gentleman readers of The Frisky, tell me you haven’t been so brainwashed by porn that you’re actually grossed out by pubes?
But Snyder also says that many women say the opinions of men aren’t why they spend upwards of $75 per session to have hot wax spread on their ladyparts. “‘You’re missing the point,’ say the waxing enthusiasts. ‘We do it because the result is worth it. Better sensation. Better sex.’” Keep reading »

We love this woven palm bracelet from Free People. The tribal pattern is totally on point and, since they’re handmade, each cuff varies in design. This statement bracelet will liven up the dreariest of outfits and can be paired with other patterned pieces to create a look with depth. Fantastic find!
Let’s just say that if I had $425 to spend all willy-nilly I wouldn’t spend it on this Isabel Marant Gulu Top, or any blouse for that matter. I’d spend it on shoes because that’s my fetish. I don’t think this blouse is totally heinous, though. I just think that price for a silk-blend top is ridiculous, especially since it looks like something I could find at Forever 21, Charlotte Russe, or Bebe. [$425, Net-A-Porter.com] Keep reading »
