Brazilian bikini wax anyone?

  1. I received this awesome spa package birthday gift from my sweetheart to Mario Tricoci Day Spa in downtown Chicago. I got to pick and choose $500 worth of services for my day of indulgence. One of the services I chose was a Brazilian bikini wax...OK, it is more for him than for me but I'm starting to have second thoughts. I mean OUCH right? Not sure I want my lawn THAT manicured! Anyone ever get a bikini wax and is it as bad as I think it's going to be?

    Ouch. You are such a brave woman. But, how sweet of your man to give you such a gift like that...I would absolutely love that gift package. Whatever you decide what to do, let us know. I am kind of curious to see what others have to say about pain as well.

    OMG... a Brazilian isn't just a bikini wax... it's everything. Like lift-and-spread-and-everything type everything.

    When I read those words from the original post I was like wow...she's brave. Takin' it all off is a painful experience from what I hear. I'm in pain just thinking about it.

    I mean, I'd like something Brazilian, but he's not a wax!

    Reminds me of the old joke about the young girl who was admitted to the operating room and when the sheet was pulled back it was noted that not only was her pubic hair dyed green but above was the tattoo "Keep off the grass". She returned to teh ward with the following comment entered into her notes
    "Sorry - had to mow the lawn"

    A brazilian - Owwwwwwwwwcccchhhhhh!!!!!

    Not this little black duck!

    I thought w/ a Brazilian they leave a little something in the front yard...we'll see. I'm going for spa day on Monday: Hour and a half Swedish aromatherapy massage, warm shea butter body wrap, olive oil manicure and pedicure, European facial, haircut and style and make-up application...oh yeah, and the torture wax!

    Okay, I looked this up on the internet:

    "Technically speaking there are four types of bikini waxes.

    The Bikini Wax - Hair is removed from outside the panty line and from nowhere else.

    The Brazilian Bikini Wax - Leaves a vertical stripe in front, two to three fingers in width. Hair is not removed from the labia. Hair is removed from the tush. Hair may be removed from the butt crack if woman wishes.

    The Playboy Bikini Wax - All hair is removed from the labia, all hair is removed from the tush, including the butt crack and only a very narrow strip is left in the front. Named after Playboy magazine because that's what you see on the models in Playboy.

    The Full Bikini Wax - It's all taken off baby. Everywhere. Everything. Bald."

    So. There you go. I actually knew a girl down here who worked as an exotic dancer, and she decided to get the Playboy style wax when people started doing it here. She bled. BLED, I say. But only the first time. So...that's not so know...could be...hey, it's not my...nevermind.

    A co-worker swears by 2% lido cream applied liberally to affected area before she leaves home. Says the people always tell her they can't imagine how she handles the pain so well.
    As for me, I'm too chicken.

    I got one about six weeks ago. And yeah, it hurt because I didn't prep for it. I forgot to take my Motrin before I went (anti-imfammatory) and didn't have anything to put on after. The drugstore carries something called Bikini Zone which has Lido in it. I was left with a strip. Which was fine by me. And my BF loved it! I'm getting a re-do this week. This time I will be prepared.
