The Female Thread-Men are welcome but enter at your own risk

Sometimes conversations here might to be cut short becasue us girls say: "I don't want to squick out the guys" so I figured a thread to talk about all those icky female issues might come in handy.

Men are more then welcome to read and join in the conversation, just like any other thread. But the first time anyone with a penis says: "Ewwwww" or "TMI", they'll be getting a severe ass-kicking from me.  :P :laugh:

so I'll start with a scary but funny story - I hoping there is not an ounce of truth in it at all!!!!!

Quote
Subject: Hair Removal

All hair removal methods have tricked women with their promises of
easy, painless removal - The Epilady, scissors, razors, Nair and
now...the wax. Read on.........

My night began as any other normal weeknight. Come home, fix dinner,
play with the kids. I then had the thought that would ring painfully
in my mind for the next few hours: " Maybe should pull the waxing
kit out Of the medicine cabinet."

So I headed to the site of my demise: the bathroom. It was one of
those "cold wax" kits. No melting a clump of hot wax, you just rub
the strips together in your hand, they get warm and you peel them
apart and press them to your leg (or wherever else) and you pull the
hair Right off.

No muss, no fuss. How hard can it be? I mean, I'm not a genius, but
I a am mechanically inclined enough to figure this out. (YA THINK!?!)

So I pull one of the thin strips out. Its two strips facing each
other stuck together. Instead of rubbing them together, my genius
kicks in so I get out the hair dryer and heat it to 1000 degrees.
("Cold wax," yeah...right! ) I lay the strip across my thigh. Hold
the skin around it tight and pull. It works!

OK, so it wasn't the best feeling, but it wasn't too bad. I can do
this!

Hair removal no longer eludes me! I am She-rah, fighter of all
wayward body hair and maker of smooth skin extra ordinaries.

With my next wax strip I move north. After checking on the kids, I
sneak back into the bathroom, for the ultimate hair fighting
championship. I drop my panties and place one foot on the toilet.

Using the same procedure, I apply the wax strip across the right
side of my bikini line, covering the right half of my hoo-ha and
stretching down to the inside of my butt cheek (it was a long strip)
I inhale deeply and brace myself... RRRRIIIPPP!! !! I'm blind!!!
Blinded from pain!!!!.... OH MY GAWD!!!!!!!! ! Vision returning, I
notice that I've only managed to pull off half the strip. CRAP!
Another deep breath and RIPP! Everything is spinning and spotted.

I think I may pass out...must stay conscious... must stay conscious.
Do I hear crashing drums??? Breathe, breathe...OK, back to normal.

I want to see my trophy - a wax covered strip, the one that has
caused me so much pain, with my hairy pelt sticking to it. I want to
revel in the glory that is my triumph over body hair. I hold up the
strip.

There's no hair on it. Where is the hair??? WHERE IS THE WAX???

Slowly I ease my head down, foot still perched on the toilet. I see
the hair. The h air that should be on the strip...it's not! I touch.
I am touching wax.

I run my fingers over the most sensitive part of my body, which is
now covered in cold wax and matted hair. Then I make the next BIG
mistake...remember my foot is still propped upon the toilet? I know
I need to do something. So I put my foot down.

Sealed shut! My butt is sealed shut. Sealed shut!

I penguin walk around the bathroom trying to figure out what to do
and think to mysel f "Please do n't let me get the urge to poop. My
head may pop off!" What can I do to melt the wax?

Hot water!! Hot water melts wax!! I'll run the hottest water I can
stand into the bathtub, get in, immerse the wax-covered bits and the
wax should melt and I can gently wipe it off, right???

*WRONG!!!!!! !*

I get in the tub - the water is slightly hotter than that used to
torture prisoners of war or sterilize surgical equipment - I sit.

Now, the only thing worse than having your nether regions glued
together, is having them glued together and then glued to the bottom
of the tub...in scalding hot water. Which, by the way, doesn't melt
cold wax.

So, now I'm stuck to the bottom of the tub as though I had cemented
myself to the porcelain!! God bless the man who had convinced me a
few months ago to have a phone put in the bathroom!!!! !

I call my friend, thinking surely she has waxed before and has some
secret of how to get me undone. It's a ver y good conversation
starter "So, my butt and hoo-ha are glued together to the bottom of
the tub!"

There is a slight pause. She doesn't know any secret tricks for
removal but she does try to hide her laughter from me. She wants to
know exactly where the wax is located, "Are we talking cheeks or
hole or hoo-ha?"

She's laughing out loud by now...I can hear her. I give her the
rundown and she suggests I call the number on the side of the box.

YEAH!!!!! Right!! I shou ld be the joke of someone else's night.
While we go through various solutions. I resort to trying to scrape
the < BR>wax off with a razor . Nothing feels better than to have
your girlie goodies covered in hot wax, glued shut, stuck to the tub
in super hot water and then dry-shaving the sticky wax off!! By now
the brain is not working, dignity has taken a major hike and I'm
pretty sure I'm going to need Post-Traumatic Stress counseling for
this event.

My friend is still talking with me when I finally see my saving
grace....the lotion they give you to remove the excess wax. What do
I really have to lose at this point? I rub some on and OH MY
GOD!!!!!!!
The scream probably woke the kids and scared the dickens out of my
friend. It's sooo painful, but I really don't care. "IT WORKS!!

It works !!" I get a hearty congratulation from my friend and she
hangs up. I successfully remove the remainder of the wax and then
notice to my grief and despair....THE HAIR IS STILL THERE....... ALL
OF IT!

So I recklessly shave it off. Heck, I'm numb by now. Nothing hurts.
I could have amputated my own leg at this point.

Next week I'm going to try hair color......

I've never had my legs waxed - I'm too much of a scardy cat - plus you'd have to let the hairs grow pretty long before you wax (mind you I'm quite lazy and often I do have prickly legs!)

I got 2 spots 2 days ago. Today I'm knackered, have no concentration and grumpy - guess what! My period just started! Even if my cycle wasn't like clockwork (cos I'm on the pill and have been for 9 years) I could tell a mile away when it was about to start.

GHA!!

I hear you Sister.  I'm perimenopausal and I can still tell when mines on it's way just by the way I feel and how irritable I get.  I think it's damn unfair to still have PMS when you start having hot flashes and hair on your chin!  >:(

This is an awesome thread topic!  8)

LOL, the only things I've ever had waxed are my eyebrows once.  It was actually a nice experience at a day-spa and I remember being amazed at how much of a difference that little amount of precision grooming could make!
 :o
But, I'm unwilling to spend money on that type of thing on a regular basis, so it was a one shot deal for me.


And, re: irritability, etc. ... for me PMS has always meant something more like a little phase of being relatively depressed. Since I recognize it as PMS, it's acutally not so bad sometimes... just recognizing it as a passing phase.  It was god-awful in grad school and not so bad lately, for which I'm very grateful.
I've never been on birth control in my life, so things are free-wheeling for me and relatively predictable.  And for me, it's really true... if I'm living in a situation where there are a lot of women sharing one bathroom... I will regulate to be on the other women's cycles.  It's honestly pretty fascinating.

Do you know - I am on a down low at the moment, I thought it was just cos I'm desperate for my holiday (12 sleeps!!  ;D) but you know its probably a combination of that and a bit of my monthly female issue!!

Now I lived with females for 5 years and I don't think I ever did regualte to anyone elses - its interesting though.

I have always loathed using a razor for my legs or underarms. Quite awhile ago--15 years maybe?--I decided "I am worth it!" and started getting a regular waxing. Legs, underarms, and eyebrows and in recent years, my upper lip. Once in awhile I'll get my bikini line neatened up. It doesn't hurt and the more I have had it done, the less hair there seems to be overall.

I would never try to do it myself (I think it would be messy and awkward). After all this time, I can't imagine going back to shaving, either!
