Confessions of a Brazilian Waxing Queen


Confessions of a Brazilian Waxing Queen

’ve been giving bikini waxes for a living for three years now, and I’ve learnt to spot the first-timers.

The first-timers usually take a loooong time to take off their clothes. Sometimes I think it’s good to give them this time, in case they decide they want to run away. Some women actually do – sometimes before they begin, sometimes right in the middle of the process. A woman who left in the middle of her first Brazilian told me her husband would make comments about her pubic hair every time they had sex. She said that it made her uncomfortable because he sounded disrespectful, and that he would go to sleep soon after he was done and she wasn’t. I don’t know how she thought a Brazilian would make this better.
