It is not as bad as it sounds, at least the brazillian. The first time really does hurt more. But as your hairs get thinner they hurt less. I love it and personally would never ever shave again. oh and the butt region doesnt hurt at all! Hope this help!

I am actually getting excited to try somethign new -- I'm a wax version, and usually prefer to shave (mostly beacuse I've been to scared lol)
BUT...since my appointment is next Saturday, when do you suggest I stop shaving and let it go? (I am dreading this...but I know I need to). I've heard not TOO long because it can be more painful, but I've also heard it needs to be long enough so that it doesn't grow back fast?

You may want to wait. I was told 3-4 weeks. Here is the place I go, they have an informative video that explains things: http:// www.bikiniwaxing.com that may be helpful. It has to be long enough so they can pull all of the hair. I guess it all grows in separately and if you don't "grow it out" enough you run the risk of only getting some of the hairs but others won't be waxed.

I'm sure the benefits will be worth it - but I won't be doing it again! lol

I'm not usually too comfortable having people down in that region and I'm a huge baby with pain but it really wasn't as bad as I expected. Sure the pain was terrible(the first time, each time is easier and easier) but that was only because I was tense and it was pretty bad down there. I didn't see what the big deal was, FI(now hubby) tried to explain why guys like it to me once but I think that ended up becoming some sort of feminist rant at some point. Oops. But now I get it, I am so much more comfortable not to mention how much he likes it and bikini season is so much easier haha.
Just make sure you find a good place to do it. Regular wax is not a good idea. The place I go to is GREAT, they use these black/purple wax beads that don't stick to the skin(I've heard of that happening a lot at other places, ouch) plus they have an amazing skin care line for relatively cheap that have kept the ingrown hairs at bay. And the person waxing you should take as much time as YOU need. Let them know if you need a break. Also, my rule is to take two Excedrin before I go in, it helps a ton not only with the pain but but it also helps you to not be expecting it to hurt. Being tense makes it hurt more.

Does that make sense?
