True Love Is Kristen Bell Shaving Dax Shepard’s Buttcrack

There’s not much that needs to be said about this, aside from the fact that someone should get Kristen Bell a trophy for Wife Of The Year.

The “Veronica Mars” star got VERY up close and personal with her husband Dax Shepard’s ass when he decided it should be shaved for a nude…

Your Razor Is Bleeding You Dry (So Switch To A Straight Razor Instead)

It’s weird, how we gender inanimate objects, isn’t it? I always felt like masculinity got all the good stuff — ties and tie bars, motorcycle boots, cufflinks, cars, fountain pens, leather chairs, horses, weapons, tools, whiskey, loafers, barware. I mean sure, I enjoyed my dress-up costumes, makeup, kitchen tools, and art supplies, but it all…

Crappy Veet Ad Campaign Says A Woman With Leg Hair Is A “Man”

Listen, it’s not new for companies that make hair removal products and tools to focus their messaging on how “gross” body hair is, in particular on a woman. I don’t think I’ve ever met a hair removal ad that made me feel great or even neutral about my body hair. But these new ads from…

Silly Questions: What Would Your Personalized Pubic Hairstyle Look Like?

When I saw that today’s New York Times Style section has yet another article about the return of pubic hair, I sighed with annoyance. Must we? Again? Seriously, I do not really actually care what any of you do with your pubes. You do you, hairy or not. But there was one delightful tidbit that stuck out…

Of Course Mama June Shaves Her Face

In “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” land, mother/daughter bonding consists of teaching your daughter how to shave your face before painting up the old barn. Because hey, Alana might as well practice getting rid of “turkey neck” hair, which will be sprouting on her face soon enough. In a clip from tonight’s episode, we see…

Alessandra Ambrosio’s Secret

Sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do. On her way to Coachella this weekend, Victoria’s Secret model Alessandra Ambrosio whipped out her electric razor and did little on-the-go grooming in her Escalade. Somehow, she managed to make shaving in public look classy. I’m going to remember this for the next time I’m running late…

Australian News Warns A “P*ssy Shaver” Is On The Loose

At my local salon, a good pussy shaving could cost around $60 bucks — but that’s not the type of pussy we’re talking about here. Get your mind out of the gutter. Little five-year-old Cleo is continually being assaulted by strangers who shave off her fur. Poor thing! And someone at Australia’s NT News i…

It’s Decembeaver, Grow Your Bush For A Cause

You might have felt excluded by Movember (or not). Well, that’s over now. Goodbye Movember, hello Decembeaver, a month when women can stop shaving their muffs for cancer. Some comedians got together and started their own campaign to go all “Bob Ross” down there. And while it appears to be a Movember spoof (“If you…

True Story: I Didn’t Shave For Two Months And Lived To Tell About It

The open joke in The Frisky offices is that while everyone else gets Brazilian waxes, I’m the proud queen of an au naturelle bush. I love my pubic hair — it makes me feel grownup and womanly and not like one of those gross hairless cats. I always trim a little bit, but that’s the extent…

Crowd-Sourcing: What Are Your Secrets For Getting Really Smooth, Hair-Free, Bump-Free Legs?

I have a confession to make: I’m 33-years-old and I still don’t know how to shave my legs. I mean, okay, I know how to shave my legs, but I don’t know how to shave my legs. Not in a way that doesn’t result in ingrown hairs, irritation, and ashy skin. I am really bad…

Swedish Women Put Down Their Razors, “Take The Hair Back”

It all started–as many revolutions do–with a school librarian. Lina Ehrin, a 32-year-old librarian from central Sweden, was in the audience of a national Swedish singing contest when TV cameras captured a shot of her cheering wildly with her arms raised–armpit hair clearly exposed. A fan of the show posted a screengrab of Lina o…

6 Ways We’re Shaving Our Legs Wrong

When it came to shaving my legs, the razor would always win the battle. Instead of walking out of my bathroom with clean, shaven limbs, I’d end up frustrated with all the unsightly gashes and leftover hair stubble.

According to Schick Quattro for Women Brand Manager Christine Galotti and Skintimate Brand Manager Alison Macneil, the…

In The Nick Of Time For V-Day

Itchy legs after shaving are the worst, especially when you have to hustle out of the warm shower to slather body butter on yourself. But I’ve finally found a product that doesn’t make my dry, winter skin even more parched — EOS Pomegranate Raspberry Ultra Moisturizing Shaving Cream. Its consistency is more like a thick…

An Open Letter to My Razor

Dear Razor,

We go back a long way, you and me. We’ve gotten together a few times a week since 8th grade, although according to some of the girls in my class I should have become acquainted with you at least a year earlier. On the whole, our relationship has been delightfully smooth…

You’re Wasting Water By Shaving Your Legs, Ladies

Who is to blame for Mother Earth’s metastasizing environmental crisis? Women, of course. Are we tossing out too many sanitary napkins? Drinking too many lattes in cardboard cups? Well, yes, but this is more serious. Us ladies are “wasting” billions of liters of water every year leaving the water running while we shave our legs.

What Kind Of Parent Would Give Their Kid This Slutty Wolfwoman To Play With?

Toy companies have made it easy for Child Protect Services: just park at Toys ‘R Us near the slutty wolfwoman doll and snag whomever’s hand in the beartrap of poor decisions. Much like Barbie, Mattel’s Monster High doll, Clawdeen Wolf, sports a lush head of hair, a fur-lined jacket, and the shortest of miniskirts. But…
