Happy new year!

Waxing in 2019

For thousands of years the human race has been evolving and bettering itself. At the root of our motivations is an instinctive drive for procreation and finding a mate to facilitate that need. This is where our vanity comes in! 

Now let me just say that this applies to people of any sexual orientation and gender identity. You don’t need to be heterosexual to have kids. You don’t even need to want kids to want a partner to share your life with. You do generally need to make the best of what you’ve got to achieve either or both though – Miss Universe is going to have no interest if you smell like you shower once a quarter and likewise you’re not going to want to smack lips if those gnashers she’s flashing are black and crumbling.

Traditionally women have blazed the trail in hair removal to make themselves look and feel more feminine – more appealing as the fairer sex if you will. I bet Cleopatra didn’t waft around braided armpit hair to woo Mark Anthony anymore than Elizabeth Taylor let her leg hair be free in the early stages of each courtship she ventured into!

In all seriousness, the Egyptians were a dedicated bunch and disliked hair so much they often removed every last strand. This apparently was then considered a class indicator and everyone wanted to be flashing the biggest proverbial truck.

Coming back to the present, body hair is considered a masculine trait and while I dare say a majority of straight women (talking from experience here guys!) prefer men with body hair, we do tend to like it to be kept in check. No bushy brows, furry ears or groins like forests please! I haven’t done extensive research to provide detailed data across the genders and preferences, I’m just going by what I know to be the case from the majority of conversations I have with clients. I have lots of clients who get sent in by their partners either because they visually prefer a waxed, manscaped or combination look. *Glancing around to see who’s looking before typing: Let’s be honest here – it’s often because they just don’t want a mouthful of hair if you know what I mean. 😉

Moving swiftly along there’s another reason guys and gals like to wax – for hygiene purposes. Some guys get really hairy bums ⬅️ picture trying to clean up some trodden in chocolate spread from a nice deep shag pile… see where this is going? That chocolatey aroma’s going to linger longer than if it was wiped up off some easy clean vinyl!

People often ask me if I get lots of gay guys, strippers, bodybuilders, insert any group with a preconceived type and you get the idea. Let me say, waxing is for everyone. I get people from every predefined group and I welcome them all. As long as you are over 18, a competent adult, and it is medically sound to remove your hair with wax then waxing is for you. Please note I do reserve the right to refuse anyone who behaves inappropriately or makes me feel threatened in any way but it’s never happened yet – don’t be that person!

On that note I think that’s it for today. Isn’t it lucky us waxers are here to protect the nostrils of those you wish to impress and encourage those you love to get a bit closer and lots more personal!
