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]

When my life overwhelms me – which, as an introverted entrepreneur and mother, is often – I try to escape to the one place that I know no one will speak to me, The Korean Day Spa. I spend the entire day there, soaking, steaming, sweating, and watching the glorious variety of women move through this sacred space as the holy bodies that they are. Everyone is naked, as mandated by the spa itself. They come in all shapes, sizes, colors, styles, and when surrounded by them I truly feel as if I am part of something, some magic thing that needs no words or creed. The mere fact of our nipples and wrinkles and bulges, and the fact that we all look ridiculously bad in the little shower caps the spa makes us wear, is enough to refill my soul. If I were the platitude sort, some part of me would probably start singing, “I am woman, hear me roar,” but the rest of me would be all like “shut up, bitch,” and I would return to the silence that I so crave.

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 hair throughout the ages via dude’s hairstyles — totally safe for work! — they certainly will.

Summer is just around the corner! Hair removal season has begun! In our “Getting Smooth Survival Guide,” we’ll be testing out various ways to defuzz your body parts, if defuzzing is something you choose to do. (No judgement if you’re happily rocking body hair. Do you, girl.) First up, I allowed cameras to film me, gulp, waxing myself with Sally Hansen’s Hair Remover Wax Strip Kit. Watch the video above and read my review of the product after the jump! Bonus: a close up photo of my just removed pubic hair. Keep reading »
Many moons ago, when I went to summer camp, getting ready for the excursion meant a trip to Marshall’s for a new swimsuit. If the New York Times Style section is to be believed (which I am not saying it is: honestly, sometimes this shit is unbelievable) some tweens and teens prep for camp more glamorously: Girls are supposedly waxing their legs, armpits and bikini lines, getting keratin treatments, and even pre-summer camp facials.

Pauly D and his crew aren’t afraid of a little pampering. Last night on the new MTV reality series, “The Pauly D Project,” Pauly D, Jerry and Biggie skipped the GTL and did a little MMW (manicures, massage, (nose hair) waxing) instead. Yes, you heard me right. They let estheticians put hot wax in their nostrils and rip the nose hair out. Gross. I didn’t even know you could get your nose waxed. What’s wrong with those nose hair trimmers? Is that not sufficient now when it comes to nasal grooming? [Huffington Post]
I’m sure, by now, many of you have either read or heard about The New York Times Style section article on the male crotch-waxing trend. “The below-the-belt treatment — which, just like the women’s version, removes either some or all pubic hair — is becoming increasingly popular, and not just among competitive swimmers or underwear models,” the piece claims. I knew guys were into trimming and manscaping, but I had no idea male crotch waxing was on the rise. Did you? I’ve spent a good portion of the week deciding how to respond to the alleged trend. I’ve never seen, nor been intimately involved with a waxed crotch, so it’s hard to say how I feel about it. Ultimately, I decided that it’s not my business to have an opinion about he-waxes and I should let the men respond directly. I took to IM to poll my own personal man panel comprised of straight, gay and metrosexual dudes in their 20s, 30s, 40s. See what they thought of mankini waxing after the jump. Oh, and please tell us what you think about it. Keep reading »
Ever since I started rockin’ bangs a few months ago, an eyebrow emergency has been steadily escalating on my forehead. If no one can see what my brows look like, what’s the point of waxing them? I can save money and time and stop humiliating myself by being such a sissy about the pain! But I’ve recently decided to grow my bangs out again — too much hassle, I can’t deal — and it was time to make a waxing appointment. I wanted it done well, seeing as its been awhile since I’ve waxed, so I made an appointment at Anastasia Brow Bar at Sephora … and found myself forking over $32 plus tip. Keep reading »
I am the only woman in NYC who has never gotten waxed. This is a fact. If someone collected statistics, the numbers would definitely confirm it.
You could say I’m a bit of a wild woman. My hair is unpredictable, my nail polish is usually mostly chipped off, I can’t do a pantsuit to save my life and I have all sorts of body hair.
I know, I should be ashamed. I once wondered if anyone would ever love me. You’d think not, but actually, I’ve been married for a year! It doesn’t count, though, because he’s the hairiest man in the world. He’s basically half wildebeest. So he doesn’t notice these things. That’s the only possible explanation. Keep reading »
“This is way too much information, but I don’t like girls with nothing down there either. It freaks me out. You have to have something, otherwise it’s fucking creepy.”
– Daniel Radcliffe tells Heat magazine that he does not like a bald beaver. Luckily my bald beaver does not like Daniel Radcliffe, but I am always happy to hear about the pubic hair preferences of (guys who played) child wizards. Radcliffe, of course, bared his ample thatch (I just love that word) of pubic fuzz when he appeared nude in the play “Equus.” [Dlisted]
