    I get mine done every month. It really doesn't bother me much anymore - like any kind of waxing. I actually prefer the kind where they don't use the paper/cloth strips to rip the wax off. I think the one where they just let the wax cool and rip off the wax with their hand hurts way less.

      I totally agree with you! My waxer uses both and it gets so smooth. It could be so much worse though, the place I go to has the man's version... sac and crack...... makes a brazilian not sound so bad

          Okay ladies...update here...I just did my second brazilian myself!!! Sure it may not be as great as the professional job but it near perfect and was 1/8 the price. I used the Nair cooling wax strips. I think this was easier because I had it done professionally the first time and the regrowth was quite a bit thinner. Whatever hairs were missed can be easily plucked.

          My tip be brave....it hurt way less the second time. Also if you are going to do this yourself make sure you pay attention to the direction of the hair growth to avoid ingrown hairs and make sure you hold your skin tight. If your skin is super sensitive, DO NOT do this yourself. Also...ask for help if you need it...some men get strangely excited about helping with this kind of thing, lol!

            Relax not bad at all. One good tip is try and have epsom salt baths a couple days after it helps with no in grown hairs.

                OMG Lil Reeve! You did it yourself!?!?!?!

                I can't even fathom that, you are definitely MUCH braver than I.

                I wish I could though, it does get pricey...

                  It was pretty funny!! She said the worst experience was this guy that came in for a full body wax. 5 hours later and many explicatives later she was done. I never realized the market for male waxing.
