George Clooney can make people do a lot of bizarre stuff, like watching old episodes of The Facts of Life, or becoming doctors, or pining after entirely unavailable men. But this cosmetic craze may be the weirdest thing he’s ever inspired.
According to The Daily Mail:
George Clooney has repeatedly joked that instead of his eyes he gets the skin on his testicles ‘ironed’ out, but now it appears he’s inspired a new craze in Hollywood.
Cosmetic expert Nurse Jamie told MailOnline that she added ‘Tighten the Tackle’ to the list of services at her Santa Monica spa, Beauty Park, last year, and it has been a raving success.
Delicately describing the $575 non-surgical treatment, the blonde beautician says it involves using lasers to remove hair, erase wrinkles and correct discoloration on the scrotum.
OH MY GOD MEN ARE HAVING THEIR BALLS IRONED.
She continues: ‘They thought the Brazilian bikini wax was crazy ten years ago and now it’s just part of the process . . the tide is turning – don’t knock it until you try it.
‘Down there the skin ages, it’s a thinner skin like that around the eyes.’
Nurse Jamie, who refuses to reveal which celebrities she’s treated, decided to investigate ‘tackle tightening’ after being bombarded with inquiries.
‘They thought the Brazilian bikini wax was crazy ten years ago and now it’s just part of the process – the tide is turning’
‘Men are becoming more comfortable with their grooming habits,’ she said.
Yep, definitely having their balls ironed. I’m never sure whether we should feel happy that both sexes are now attempting bizarre cosmetic adjustments, or just sad for everyone in the world. Probably the latter.
