Weirdly enough, it is almost spring here, which means I finally got around to having my legs properly waxed.

I always do this at the Aveda school in the next town over. The downside is: students do it, and it's slow. The upside is: it's cheap, and the Aveda products are lovely.

Since, as I mentioned, even a half-leg wax takes a long time at this place, I always end up making conversation with the girls (they really are that young) while they're doing it.

"So," I ask, since, as you know, I've developed something of an interest in this question, "do you have a lot of guys coming in for waxing stuff?"



"Nah," says she, "not really. Eyebrows, maybe."

Which I could have guessed. Much as I love my part of the world, strict masculine grooming is not among its virtues.

"But," she continues, kind of conspiratorially, "they did offer to give us a class on man-zilians."

It takes me a few moments to process what this might mean. Then, "Oh," I say. "Really? Really?!"

"Uh-huh. But only if someone would volunteer for us to practice on." (she's already explained to me that the girls had to practice giving Brazilians to each other, and what a bad, bad day that was.)

"Did someone-uh-volunteer?"

She nods. "Yeah, one of the guys said he'd do it."

"And, have you done it?" I cannot help but picture this scene. It is startling.

"Nah. Not yet."

"But, who--who--would want---??" I'm totally clutching my pearls now.

She kind of laughs and shrugs. "I dunno. In Hollywood, maybe."

Y'all--I feel older every day!

  • she's already explained to me that the girls had to practice giving Brazilians to each other, and what a bad, bad day that was

    I LOL'd. The Man-zilian, wow. *is even more grateful for Alex O'Loughlin*
  • First thought: Cannot think of a class I've been in where I would want to get that... close and intimate with my classmate.

    Second thought: that one time I saw that interview with that porn star he explained he used cream to get his extra hair off... so 'it' looks longer.

    third thought: that one time I caught five minutes of Six Feet Under on the telly and two guys were debating gays' propensity to shave it all off for better fellatio... my mom was sitting right there next to me.

      Trufax, I was actually teaching "The Rape of the Lock" yesterday, and we were all talking about how private a thing hair was *and self-consciously fussing with our (visible) hair*

      And, aha, I knew there must be perfectly sensible porn star reasons to do something like that!
    • Re: your second thought. I've heard that trimming the bushes makes the deck look bigger. ;)
  • Haha, that scenario of the women all giving each other Brazillians sounds a) NASTY and b) totally like a set-up for porn. ;)
    • LOL! My inner hippie is mostly all about (a) (me and the girl were just about crossing our legs just talking about it), but, you're right, there's probably a whole kink community out there devoted to waxing!
  • Ow. OWOWOW!
  • You make me LOL! That's hilarious! :D
    • It really was hysterical--a genuine "say what now?" moment. But maybe I'm a complete innocent, and this is something everyone knows about and takes for granted--
  • SAY WHAT?! XDDDD
    I'm sorry, but I can't stop rofling XDDD
