If reading Fifty Shades of Grey has breathed new life into your bedroom habits, then I'm sure you've at least thought about whether or not you should make a trip to the spa for a full bikini wax & go totally bare "down there." If Christian Grey prefers his ladies smooth and hair-free, then the idea of a waxed bikini area providing a more intense sexual experience has to have some truth to it, right?
Of course, the idea of having hot wax spread on the delicate skin in that area and having your hair ripped out at the roots is a little bit cringe-worthy, to say the least. Considering how bad eyebrow waxes sting, I'm guessing bikini waxes are a hell of a lot worse.

And that's why I've always been petrified to break down and book an appointment -- because I'm a big baby about the whole thing. But that doesn't mean I let things grow wild in my nether regions either. I hate body hair. I really, really hate it -- which is why I've had a very friendly relationship with my razor for years now.
And while the razor doesn't get things as perfectly smooth as a bikini wax, it definitely does a decent job -- and keeps things almost completely bare. And the best part is, it doesn't hurt a bit. (As long as you're super careful.)
But something tells me Christian Grey would be pretty appalled about my using a disposable razor instead of getting a wax -- and he probably wouldn't find shaving very sexy. (Guess it's a good thing I'm not married to him.)
Do you get regular bikini waxes -- and do you go for full or partial hair removal?
