Getting a wax should never have been gender-specific, but unfortunately it has been for a long time. Now, as the world opens up, men can reap the benefits of longer-lasting hair removal, even in the pubic region. So if you're a man new to the world of "Brazilian" waxing, and a little hesitant, allow us to brief you on the process. Some men who shave their pubic regions are now opting to avoid the itchy "five o'clock shadow" that develops down there, and going for a longer-lasting, smoother solution.
According to a survey, which looked at 4, respondents between the ages of 18 and 35 taken from Cosmo's social media accounts, Esquire's Twitter, and AskMen's Facebook, men are very particular about the way their partners groom their bits. The data revealed that a huge 46 per cent of men prefer women to go completely bare, 30 per cent like it neatly trimmed and 12 per cent favour a landing strip. Now, that might not come as much of a surprise but what does is the fact that 40 per cent of men surveyed said they had asked their partners to change the way they groom their pubic hair. And, that a shocking 30 per cent consider it to be a major deal breaker, admitting that the amount of hair someone had down below would make them reconsider dating them. In fact, some experts claim that women who do shave down below could actually be putting themselves at greater risk of infection.
Are there guys that like us to have hair down there or do they all prefer us to be as bald as the day we were born? What goes through a guy's head when he discovers that we don't shave it all off? Is he turned off? Does he think it is gross or is he okay with it? We women have enough decisions to make in our day to day lives, but here we are, strapped with the awkward question of whether or not to shave off all the hair between our legs.
I've been getting bikini waxes for about five years now and I have no regrets. Well, one: they're expensive. Other than that though, I'm happy to swap a few minutes of excruciating pain for smooth skin down there. With all the horror stories about pain they're all true , you're probably wondering, " Why do women do bikini waxes?
