Wax War!

  1. SYDNEY (Reuters) - An Australian woman has ripped her way into the record books by giving bikini waxes to 130 people in four hours without apparent mishap.

    Lareesa Guttery, a beauty therapist in the western city of Perth, claimed her new record on Saturday when she almost doubled British woman Deanne Ware's two-year-old mark of 77 waxes.


    She said her only problem had been a lack of willing volunteers.


    "We had to go out into the mall and persuade people to come in and get waxed," Guttery told Australian Associated Press.


    Six of her teary-eyed subjects were men.


    "A couple of the women were in a bit of pain after the procedure, but there were no real mishaps, thankfully," she said.


    "I think I could do 200...if we can get the volunteers."


    Guttery was not at work on Monday and unavailable for further comment.


    Her record bid was witnessed by two qualified beauty therapists, whose job it was to make sure the waxes were completed properly. The record will be formally lodged with the Guinness Book of Records later on Monday.

    "I think I could do 200...if we can get the volunteers."
    Wow, and I can't imagine WHY they can't get a lot of volunteers, especially men...

    As a man, if this woman (who I don't know from Eve) came up to me and told me she wanted to wax me, I'd have to ask her, "So, you want to do something that I don't really want, something that I would NEVER pay for, something that will cause me pain...why?"

    "So I can be in the Guinness Book of World Records."

    "You're serious."

    "Yes."

    "And how much will I be paid for this?"

    "Nothing."

    "Uh, that's o.k."

    Am I missing something??? And how the heck did THIS become a category in the GBWR? Maybe I could set the world record for most bikini waxers turned down in an hour.

    I wonder if they could do my back?
    Is the wax hot when they pour it on?
    Do they pour it?
    I really know nothing about waxing.

    the wax is quite warm upon application, not unlike a warm compress.... They pick it up with what looks like a tongue depresser, smooth it on, then, they rub the cloth on it, then, pull....

    its not too bad.... you get a bit of an endorphin rush while doing it, and your hair grows nicer after it...

    It's not that bad at all. If you do it regularly, it stops hurting all together.
