Those Brazilians are one tough breed

From the I-can’t-believe-they-need-to-make-a-law-against-this department comes word that the state of New Jersey is considering a ban on, um, genital waxing. Specifically, the state Board of Cosmetology and Hairstyling – am I the only one who chuckled when reading that? – wants to prohibit so-called Brazilian bikini waxes after two women were hospitalized for infections after undergoing the “procedures.” Being a person not familiar with waxing of any sort, aside from the use of candles, I did a little research and learned that a “Brazilian” involves the application of hot wax and a yanking motion to remove each and every hair from a person’s body “down South.” That’s front, rear and all points in between, I’m led to believe. And just a warning here. Do not, NOT, let the kids look up bikini waxing on Wikipedia. Yikes! I’ll pause a minute here while you all look up bikini waxing on Wikipedia. OK. Now I recognize that ladies like to look their best on the beach in the warm months, and a little, uh, landscaping is probably advisable. But, number one, there has to be a better way. And, number two, it’s not really necessary for you ladies to go to the extremes required for you to wear a bikini with a front the size of a postage stamp. We fellas have a pretty good idea of the general female anatomy in that region, whether you cover it with a cotton ball or a kaftan. You can limit the advertising, is what I’m saying. I’m not suggesting that you want to do your own pelvic tribute to Larry Fine from the Three Stooges, but a little moderation seems to be in order here. I also have learned that some “men” go in for this waxing to remove unwanted hair. You know who you are, and you should immediately turn in your “guy card.”

it won't pass. it would be like trying to ban plastic surgery, and we've all seen the horror stories of those on talk shows. they know here are risks involved, and if they got infections, seems to me either 1) they went to a cheap dirty place to get it done, or 2) they're own "place" is cheap and dirty.

When waxing is outlawed, only outlaws will have ... um ... wax.

In one of the stories I read, it said the Brazilian waxes were already illegal in New Jersey but that some salons were doing it anyway. This new legislation is just making it more clear.
If someone wants to get it done, I don't see why the government needs to be involved in that choice. Instead, the government should be involved in make sure the businesses that provide that service are clean ... just like they do for other businesses.

I don't understand why'd you'd pay someone to do that... I do my manscaping at home, myself...

And don't worry, Brant... I have turned in my man-card... Too bad it was printed on the back of my Pegasus VIP card... :-/

I guess when one is dealing with hard-to-reach places, a little help might be required. Then there are the "calorically challenged" folks like me who, in order to accomplish such a procedure, might need mirrors and one of those thingamajigs they used to use to get grocery items off of high shelves.

Women have hair down there? You'd never know it from contemporary porn.

I would like to volunteer my services to make sure the fine women of New Jersey are abiding by this law.
