We understand, and appreciate, your (strange) attempts at being as good-looking as possible for us.
Manicures were odd. Man Spanx was pushing it. But this new Brozilian wax trend you boys are doing to, well, your "boys" is just wrong.
Trust me, waxing all of it hurts, and we all know that women have more of a pain threshold than men do (hello, childbirth!), so when we say you can't handle it, you probably cannot handle it. Plus, you have balls -- you think getting kicked there is painful? Ha.
It won't make your junk look bigger; in fact, you'll look like a prepubescent boy, and no one wants to play with that. A little trim is all that's necessary.
Yes, they're exactly what you're thinking they are -- Brazilian waxes for men. The first male to brave the unknown ironically had it done at J Sisters salon, who is famous for bringing the waxing method to the States.
"One of my clients asked if I could wax her husband," Janea Padilha, 55, the inventor of the Brazilian tells Salon.com. The man had some kind of bacterial infection that needed to be addressed. "At the time we had an all-female clientele. But the guy had a lot of hair down there." Janea leaned in confidentially. "So we sneaked him through the back."
And now the word has spread and it's turned into a full-blown trend. Jed Lipinsi, writer for the Salon article, ventured into the unknown himself (hey, can't write an article without experiencing it, right?). I can't help but chuckle when he writes:
What got me, though, was the contrast between Janea's dainty, tender application of the wax and the brute force with which she ripped it off. She threw my leg over her little shoulder, like a sports therapist, and began raining baby powder down on the target areas. The pain was almost unbearable. "Why am I doing this?" I thought, staring at the elaborate, cherub-accented ceiling.
There are just some things that are better left for the women.
What do you think of the Brozilian? Would you want your man to get one?
