        Im not in Jersey.. but Im shocked that they are considering put a ban on waxing.. idk.. when I at home (St. Louis), there were several cases of people catching the herpes virus from getting waxed, but they never put a ban on it there..

          One of the comments on that page: "90 days of Obama and Bush is back in NJ" LMAO Sorry, had to say it.

          I think this is stupid, what gives them the right to choose where a woman has hair on her body and where she doesn't? If they ban brazilians in salons, then all these women are going to start doing them at home instead of being able to go to a professional.

          Why not start worrying about real issues, like the economy, or war?

              I like how the article's reasoning is "two women got injured." Are they also going to ban other waxing, plastic surgery, facials, exercise, and all the other unnecessary things that can possibly go badly?

              All that happens is that salons will start doing it in secret, and women will have to go to skeevy under-the-table places to get it done, which will just result in more injury! I got a good laugh out of the article at least, but are they serious? We have the right to bear arms, but not to get our bajingo's waxed?

                You have seriously got to be kidding me. Thank god I know a woman who comes to the house to wax!

                Godforbid we wax our cookies, it may hurt us. But we sure can go drink and smoke ourselves to death!!

                  I'm so glad you posted that. I saw a snippet of it on a news teaser for a show I DVR'd, but watched the show too late to be able to turn into the news to hear the whole story.

                  I love how it's our bodies if we want to have an abortion, but not if we want to get a brazilian wax. Perhaps they should have an extra certification for those who do these types of waxes, but in no way should they ban them. It's WAY harder and less safe to wax down there than it is to pay someone else to do it.

                    I'm not from NJ, nor am I from the US, but this is insanity!

                    My theory is that someone in the gov't did something really bad (or really stupid) and this is just a way to take the attention off them.

                    38 people plus bride and groom coming to Cuba!
