My first Brazilian

Okay, so that is not 100% true.

My first Brazilian would be Sidnei. So technically this is my second Brazilian! Har, har.

My sister, Rachael, you remember her right?




Well my little sister decided to go get a Brazilian. You KNOW. A BRAZILIAN. That's right, WAX. So what did I do? I joined her.

Can I just say one thing? Please?

OUCH!!!

What in the WORLD, could I have been possibly thinking?

Holy Cow.

So after the trauma, we waddled back to the car and went to dinner. PF Changs style. And talked about how we couldn't cross our legs. Or move really. At all.

Then we got a pedicure.

So now my toes are HOT pink and cute! (Finally...it's been needed for a while!)

But we have both concluded that cute toes do NOT make our crotch stop hurting. Not. at. all.

So for the next couple of days, we will be taking it easy! And moving as little as possible! Let's hope tomorrow is significantly better!

Has anyone else done this? Do you have any words of comfort?

Hope you all have a GREAT weekend!


**By the way, that post I promised for yesterday? Sorry. Look for it Monday!**

To be honest I don't really get it why it is called "brazilian wax". No one in Brazil wax the whole thing! Unless in are in the porn business, I believe! hehehe!!

And I can't even imagine how much that hurts! :P

beijos!

Bia said...

* Unless you are in the porn business.

That is what I meant! :)

My plan is to have that done right before I give birth, so as to avoid my most embarrassing moment happening again. I had it done once before and it was one of the most painful things in my life (I didn't hold back from screaming, lol), but it'll be worth it to avoid pictures of my bush being sent to family.

Give it a few more hours and you'll love it!

You...are...insane. My only advice for you is to get some psychiatric help. Because you...are...insane.

I'm thinking ice...lots of ice!

After a few sessions (do it once a month) you won't feel any pain, I promise! I can't live without waxing!

Bia, I'm brazilian, I wax "the whole thing" and I'M NOT in the porn business, most part of my friends here preffer to wax almost everything, and they're not whores as well...wrong assumption (and reading this from a brazilian is what I less expected!)

beijo!

Carla said...

Girl, I'm proud of you! But for one gal who gets them done often, after a while you don't even notice it at all, and I am not playing. :) nice . . . .

Kerri said...

marina said...

Ouch !!

Blissful Babe said...

Holy cow!! I am too chicken to do it. Not to mention that I'm not sure I can get let someone...some *stranger* get that close to my hoo-ha. ESPECIALLY with HOT WAX.

But hey, it beats shaving... KUDOS to you for trying it!

Bru said...

I do it once a month. But I am brazilian and I have been doing this for so long that I don't think I really feel that kinda pain anymore. It is horrible, but it lasts only 30 min and then you're good to go. Applying an aloe-vera cream on the first day helps to "calm" your skin. If it's not back to normal on the second day, you should change salons.

Bru said...

Oh, and the way we do it HERE, there's no waxing the whole thing. You just leave what's really necessary.

TattooedMinivanMom said...

Uh, no. I'll stick with razor burn thank you very much.

Tranquility said...

Hahaha... no, it's not for me! I see no need to cause myself more pain beyond the usual and more common female tortures. ;)

Wendi said...

Ouch!
I would love to try it...but I have aversions to pain.

Elaine A. said...

Let's just say you are a braver woman than I am! ; ) I hope things are feeling better!

P.S. I LOOOOVE your hair, it looks great! And wow!, you're alsmost 'off!' YAY!!!

Dari said...

I have always wanted a brazilian, as the hubs and I prefer the least hair possible downstairs. But I have never done one yet... I think I am too cheap ha ha But it has to be better then shave rash down there. So I may try it someday as long as I plan on keeping it up!! You'll have to let me know how you are liking it now... or in a few days :)

P.S. That lingerie is super sexy!! I really like it and I am SURE Sidnei will too!!!!!

cobg said...

Ouch Ouch!!!

I've never done it, but have a friend who decided to right before her wedding night. Not only did it hurt terribly, but there was a confusion with the waxist (is that a word?) who was in fact Brazilian and didn't speak much English.

My friend just wanted the underside done and a leave a little "landingstrip" up top. But the waxist started taking it all off. My friend quickly realized and made her stop -- but what she got left with was a little hitler mustache!!! We nearly peed ourselves when we convinced her to drop drawer and show us the night before the wedding.
I don't think she'll ever do it again!

Yup. I've done it. And I would still be doing it if I had a job to pay for it. I was going about every 5 weeks. I always take 3 ibuprofen and a shot of some sort of alcohol (the place is 5 mins from my house. By the time I'm laying on the table, it's taken it's desired effect. ;0) But yes. It most definitely hurts, but the result is so worth it. I wish I could still afford it!

Ashley said...

Okay... would love to try but I'm totally scared - of the pain and of having some person looking at my "hoo-haa" (as someone else called it) for too long. You might have to give us some details about how it goes down.... to see if we can muster the nerve to actually get it done!

(P.S. I bet it makes that lingerie look even better!)
