Bikini Waxing - Should you do it?
To prepare for wearing a summer bikini, or for being able to wear more revealing lingerie many women have a bikini wax at a salon, spa.
Should you have one done? Well let's have a look at the advantages and the procedure.
Why have a Bikini Wax?
For a woman with lots of pubic hair, a bikini wax will ensure she isn't embarrassed when showing a bikini line when wearing a thong, string bikini or a revealing swim suit.
Also, many women and men believe that less hair in the pubic area looks and feels more erotic, many believe that hair removal makes oral easier and sex more enjoyable.
This has led to a trend not just for more women to have a bikini wax but to go for total hair removal from the area via a Brazilian wax. More of that later lets look at the Bikini wax.
If you are considering having a bikini wax, keep in mind that the pubic hair removal process can be a bit painful and it's a regular beauty treatment as hair will grow back in around 3 weeks
Preparing Yourself for a Bikini Wax
Before you have your treatment, take a shower and clean your pubic area.
Don't worry bout the embarrassment factor a waxer has seen it all before and really is no more embarrassing than getting un dressed at the gym, in fact it is less embarrassing you're with a women who does it as a full time job.
They don't feel uncomfortable and neither should you.
The Bikini Wax Treatment
You will get into a separate room or am area partitioned by a curtain for privacy.
You will need to lie on a bed with your knees up or legs down.
The therapist - waxer will then go to work and trim down your pubic hair with scissors to a length of a quarter of an inch in preparation for the wax to be applied.
The waxer will start the waxing process.
The therapist will use a low temperature wax which causes less pain.
When the wax cools the therapist will remove the pubic hair.
This is where you will feel some pain or discomfort but it's not normally as bad as most people think it will be and the first time is always the most painful.
After the first session it gets more comfortable and easier.
The waxer will ask you to get into some odd positions for easy access so she can remove the hair.
You may find your legs up in the air, to the side and even over your head as your waxer completes the process which should take no more than 30 minutes and probably less.
If the waxer is a good one the discomfort and painful part will be over quickly.
If you feel uncomfortable or nervous, just tell the therapist and she will pause generally it's the anticipation more than the pain most women fear.
When the waxing is done a soothing lotion will be applied to the waxed area.
Your bikini area will stay hairless for around 3 weeks with no maintenance at all and then you will be due another session with your waxer.
Bikini Waxing - The Verdict
For 15 - 30 minutes of discomfort and its not as bad as most women think it will be most women are delighted with there new shaved look.
Its clean it's sensual and it's liberating and that's something for all women to enjoy!
