I Dream of Waxing Vaginas.
I starting thinking about career waxers today. I'm not talking about esthetician but Brazilian Vagina waxing laborers.
I know jobs are scarce here and you do what you have to do, but waxing? In a practical sense, I can imagine a cousin of a girl works at Pello Menos and can get her a job. Fair enough. But passionate waxers? Does that exist? I've never been waxed by a 13 year old boy so it's hard to imagine. They are about the only people I could see finding joy in that line of work. That would be because it's the closest they get to "that line of work".
I guess if you starting asking, you could question urologists and gynocologists too. For that matter, proctologists. Alright, gynos get to deliver babies. They are clear in my book. Urologists... I'm sure they do something. Proctologists have no excuse. By definition: a doctor specializing in diseases of the rectum and anus. Hi, I'm Dr. So and So's wife. He gets his kicks sticking his fingers in old people's tooshies. Oh wait, I think I just explained that one.
I don't even want to think of my waxing getting any sort of kicks, although I swear it happened to me once. No, I don't want to talk about it. Ok, I'll sum it up as some questionable finger placement.
Moving on, when you are getting that intimate with a person, you're curious on how they started their career. Hell, my husband had to know me for far longer than my waxer to get that deep of a look. And down here in Rio de Janeiro, they are so thorough that you'd think they are looking for a winning lotto number in there. Needless to say, they do a damn good job.
One thing every woman who comes to Rio needs to do, is get a Brazilian wax. I'm not talking about the , "I don't take off my undies" basic wax. You need to come and get the, "oh you haven't you passed through puberty, wait I think I found some hair!" wax. If you are going to do it, do it all the way! It's Brazil baby.
On a serious note, go to a place that is well known and doesn't reuse the wax. I mention Pello Menos above but I read an article that named them as reusers. The article said that boiling the wax does not kill everything and that includes HIV. I'm not a scientist and I can't say for sure. Either way, it's really nasty to think of someone's hair covered hard wax being spread on my special parts, even if it's been boiled. Find a good place that throws that stuff out! There's one in Largo do Machado.
