I cannot believe I have written this list. More
I was led astray by a Groupon. More
It’s no secret that womanhood can be a little rough at times–quite literally, even. I’m talking about hair here, people.
Thanks to conventional beauty standards, we are often forced to surrender our hair follicles. In response to these pressures, there seems to be a never ending battle between methods of hair removal. Shaving, on one hand, may be less painful but usually doesn’t last as long as a more painful wax. So what’s a woman to do? More
As much as I’m not a fan of chest hair, I think I’d prefer my dude to have it instead of waxing it. I’m not opposed to the idea of a man waxing anything, but if he were to do … More
Pubic hair. The number of stories that I’ve read addressing it in the past few weeks is boggling my mind. Apparently I live in a happy little bubble – because pubic hair has never really brought me any stress. I’ve never been on the receiving end of a Brazilian, had my vagina bedazzled, or slept with someone who insists I have a hairless vagina. It seems I may be in the minority, though. More
I don’t care that men want me to get a landing strip or a square or a little line or nothing or everything. After all, it’s my crotch, right?
And for the last time, if any design is going down, it’ll be whiskers. More
Apparently she’s become frustrated existing within Teen Mom‘s relative pop culture obscurity and so figured out a foolproof plan of getting people to pay attention to her despite a conspicuous lack of talent (the Kardashian Method): being horrible. More
Normally, I make it a point not to talk about private lady business, but I heard about the special gingerbread cookie scented wax at Strip: Ministry of Waxing and it sounded so odd – and so whimsical! So delectable! So like the beauty treatment equivalent of this guy!:- that I thought, “oh, hell, give it a go and write about it”. So I am. More
Don’t let your boyfriend read this column. Especially not if your boyfriend looks at pornography and makes puppy dog eyes while pleading with you to remove every single hair down there. How do you deal with this? I have frequently pointed out that untold generations managed to lead satisfying sex lives before the mass deforestation started by late ‘80’s porn.
But it turns out that smoothness down below is not just an invention of late stage capitalism. Nope. Turns out that the ancient Greeks, alongside being masters of art, literature, philosophy, and toga parties, were also quite skilled at getting their women to engage in pubic hair depilation. More
Ah! Men and their need to see, have or taste a hairless vagina. More
I’m often asked how I keep my eyebrows looking so good. This is how. (Yes, I am brushing imaginary dirt off my shoulders.) More
“You do realize that in not having hair you’re just perpetuating the porn industry’s idea that the infantilization of women is OK, yes?” More
It’s obnoxious enough that we have to wade through so many trend pieces about the death of pubic hair (just because it isn’t in porn doesn’t mean it’s dead; stop), but now we have to wade through trend pieces about men getting waxed bare, too. Worse still, whenever men do something traditionally female, someone has to come up with some thoroughly insufferable vocab in lieu of having an actual angle… More
