Pampering or sheer pain?

Sheer alright ...actually shearing and other methods are easier.  I've had a bit of waxing done in the past... and it was pretty awful.  ANd, the first time I went with a friend who screamed into a pillow the whole time she was in the "treatment" room.  I was almost afraid to go in when it came to my turn.  It wasn't as bad as having to scream...but, honestly, who goes through this sort of thing regularly?  Plenty of folks I guess.  And, I do remember wishing one of my men patients who had a reeeellly hairy back would go for waxing when I was doing massage therapy.

But, ... who in their right mind wants to rip out people's hair on a daily basis for a living? ...especially in the nether regions?   What a job.  And I used to wonder if suctioning blood and slimy saliva was the worst... well, okay, maybe it was ...  and, then, don't even talk about having to change and clean out the suction bottles....acckkk@@ !!!   I don't think I could do it anymore.  My gag reflex has gotten worse over the years, not better......

Anyway, this was too funny to pass up.  Look what popped through the mail slot the other day..  only in Canada, eh?

Hopefully if you click on the photo you can read the fine print... if not let me know...it's the best part...




On the other side it says to "get my glamorous self ready for a good pampering"! hah!  oh, yeh.... somebody's got a warped sense of humour.  I've been waxed before, babe...and it ain't anything like pampering!

I wonder if they serve shots with the Brazilian?  You'd need some sort of fortification for that one wouldn't ya?

OMG...I can't even imagine the pain of the "Brazilian". You ask if they serve shots for that one...how about general anesthesia???

Vee, I can always count on you for a giggle or two! Happy new year, sweetie! xo

Thank you for the laugh! I've never been waxed and have no intentions of starting either. Just the thought of it makes me cringe!

Ouch!! I wonder who seriously thought it was a good idea in the first place? I love the descriptions. Makes me think of my Friday post and the well stuffed drawers! x Jo

They do waxing at my hairdressers. They have this private room and every so often you'll hear a scream or two. Makes me cringe thinking about it.

Oh, not for me - i don't like pain. So glad you stopped by - it's been so long since I've visited past blog friends. I've made three moves in about four years. Life's been so busy!!

What a great topic! I'm laughing that kind of laugh that's at someone else's expense! I've never had this done and no plans for it. The advertisement is hysterical. Can't even imagine the damage the Brazilian would cause. See if you wait long enough with age it starts just going away by itself LOL! That's what I'm talkin' about!!

Happy New Year!! hugs, Edie marie

Hadn't heard of the others besides Brazillian so that was funny! Looks like it's set up for the pain tolerance levels!

Thanks for cheering my day, and thanks for visiting my blog.

I couldn't agree more. I don't even pluck my eyebrows!! Who self inflicts pain for pleasure??? OK, don't answer that one but my daughter is a wax junkie. I don't get it, really I don't.and your comment was anything but redundant, thank you...x

Hi Vee
Just catchinng up with some blog-reading ...... sometimes life gets in the way of having fun. Many years ago, I bought DIY legwaxing strips. I stuck one on the front of both legs - and having finally managed to pull the first one off, I had to get Malcolm to pull off the second one, as I just couldn't inflict the pain on myself for a second time!!!!

Vee, you are the funniest!!!!
