Frisky Rant: “Pro-Bush” Is The Stupidest Phrase To Describe Women With Pubic Hair

When Cameron Diaz came out against laser hair removal and waxing pubic hair, I thought she was drawing attention to her new book, The Body Book, and pube talk would disappear in a 24-hour news cycle. She called a lady’s bush “a pretty draping that makes it a little mysterious to the one who might be…

PETA Hits New Low With Joanna Krupa “Fur Trim” Pubic Hair Ad

This ad from PETA is all kinds of disturbing and not just because it further promotes the idea that pubic hair is “unattractive” and a woman has to spend $$$ to trim and wax. No, PETA, this ad really looks like Joanna Krupa has the Lorax down there in her skivvies. Just ridiculous. [via Amanda Palmer]…

Pubic Hairstyles Throughout The Ages: Playboy South Africa Fondly Looks Back

I’m a fan of referring to pubic hair sans styling as “fur pie,” because it makes everyone in The Frisky offices squeal for some reason. Maybe from now on I’ll just say “1962” and hope everyone gets my pubic drift. If they watch this clever Playboy South Africa video about how ladies have styled their pubic…

Whoopi Goldberg Talks Porn, Pudendas & Brazilian Waxing On “The View”

I’m all for frank talk about sex, pornography, and women’s ladyparts. In fact, I try to freak out Amelia with my favorite gross phrase for my nether regions on the regular. [Ick. — Editor] But even I don’t want to think about Brazilian waxing while I’m sipping my morning coffee.

Anyone watching “The View”…

Was My Bikini Waxer Trying To Be Insulting Or Helpful?

This has been the summer of strange bikini waxing experiences. First, a waxer I found through a Living Social deal was a double-dipper. Then last week, I tried another waxer, who I found through Groupon. I had a rather pleasant experience, but something the esthetician said has confused me, and I’m not sure if I…

True, Gross Story: My Bikini Waxer Was A Double-Dipper

It’s no secret that I’m not a fan of body hair. It’s also no secret that times are hard. So lately, I’ve been on quest to find a more affordable bikini waxer because it costs about $72 for a Brazilian wax and 20 percent tip at the spa I’ve been patronizing for the last three…

Ladies, Why Do You Wax?

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…

Daily WTF: 8-Year-Olds Now Getting Bikini Waxes

Yes, we know, the headline to this post makes us want to gag, too, but apparently it’s a real thing that’s happening in waxing salons around the country. Now moms are taking their prepubescent daughters to get their legs and bikini lines waxed.

“But young girls don’t even have bikini lines,” you say.

Doin’ It With Dr. V: Bikini Wax Safety

Back in March, the State of New Jersey actually tried to ban Brazilian waxes after two women got infections from unsanitary salons. In neighboring New York City, one woman was even hospitalized for 15 days after she got a bad infection from going bald at a dirty spa. The poor gal almost lost her leg…
