The post where I talk about my vag.

So, today was my waxing appointment. I've never had a bikini wax, ever. I've waxed my legs, eyebrows, upper lip, all the typical women waxing places but never down there. To say I was terrified was an understatement.

The funny part is that just a few months ago I got pierced down there and I wasn't even close to as scared as I was about this. Getting pierced hurts but only for a second, this is long, drawn out pain and typically, I am not down with that.

When I got to the shop the esthetician was super nice and made me feel really comfortable. I think in order to do that job you have to have mad people skills and luckily, she did. She explained everything to me about what was going to happen, the positions I would need to be in for different parts, the types of wax she would use, the parts that tend to hurt the worst. She was awesome!

It started out easy enough and that helped me get comfortable. Before I knew it we were chatting like girlfriends while she ripped my hair out. I'm not going to lie, there were parts that hurt like hell but for the most part it wasn't bad. I'd definitely say getting my legs waxed is way, way worse.

So, any of you there looking to take the leap, I say go for it but go to someone that specializes in waxing, not your local nail salon. The key is the hard wax, it doesn't stick to your skin, only the hair, so your skin doesn't get all inflamed from ripping the wax off.

I'm very happy with the results and will definitely be making this part of my normal routine.

I have never been waxed, PERIOD. Although I might want to, so thanks for sharing your story. It doesn't sound too bad. Surely, if I can birth a couple of babies I could handle that, right?

Oh yeah, on a scale of 1 to having a baby this is like a 2. Easy peasy.

Whoa. You are my hero. *bows*

I totally want to do this now.

lolz at "that specializes in waxing, not your local nail salon". Funny stuff because i have a nail salon across the street that pimps their waxing. Good to know, good to know.

I wax regularly and I consider it to be a, high point of my month. But I'm also a masochist, so, ya know, it's relative, really.

But welcome to the club nonetheless. It's great if you keep up with it! Little known fact my esthetician told me: your hair grows thicker on your strong side. First time I went to see mine, she took one look at my crotch and said, "I bet you're left handed." Interesting stuff, I tell ya!
