Top Embarrassing Questions On Bikini Waxing
What's the first thing that comes to your mind when you hear Bikini Waxing? We bet it's something like OUCH! Well, yeah, it's a big ouch if you're doing it for the first time, but if it has become part of your grooming routine then it's... something enjoyable (said no one ever!), but it's something you have to deal with. When the bathing-suit season arrives, a lot of women (and men) start thinking about doing it. Are you thinking about it? Is this going to be your first time waxing that area? We bet you have some or maybe tons of questions and, since it's a delicate and very private area, you may be embarrassed to ask them?
Don't worry we totally get it, that's why we decided to help you there so you don't have to ask them. We compiled top embarrassing questions about bikini waxing to help you assuage your anxiety. But, before we get into the questions, let's explore a little bit the world of bikini waxing, so you'll know what to expect if this is indeed your first time trying it.
The first thing you need to know is that for most people, bikini waxing is not a pleasant or fun experience. Bikini waxing is a longing-lasting method to remove your pubic hair, it lasts longer than shaving, leaving that area smoother for two to four weeks. So, during summer, it's a good option because you won't be reaching for your razor as much.
If this is your first time, it is not recommended to shave before your first waxing session. If your hair is too short, the wax won't be able to pick it up. If you want to trim it, you should know that the length should be about 1/4 inches long for the wax to pick it. So, in short, don't shave between waxes.
There are different waxing styles (or shapes), be clear on what you'd like before you do it. You have your simple bikini wax, where you only take the pubic hair off the sides of your bikini line. There's also the Brazilian Wax, which removes all or nearly all of your hair (front to back); or you can have the full-bush Brazilian style in which, they remove all the hair from the vulva and back leaving you a triangle in the front.
Don't schedule a bikini wax before or during your period. First, your skin is most sensitive during those days and second, etiquette. It's recommended to take a shower or a bath on the day of your waxing session. This helps to open your pores and makes the waxing a little bit less painful.
Be conscious that your lower half will be totally exposed. Some places offer disposable underwear when you're having a simple wax but, if you're having a full-bush you'll be completely naked down there. Also, be aware that your waxer will get up-close and very personal. Depending on the quantity of hair you'll want to remove, there's going to be a lot of spreading.
Lastly, for the hairs left behind, you'll need to be tweezed. Post wax, your skin is going to be red and irritated but it won't last much, it should go away overnight. To soothe your skin, it could help to apply hydrocortisone cream over the waxed area to help calm it and to quell any itchiness and to reduce the redness.
Now, let's get to the questions.
1. Is someone going to judge me when they look down there?
Some women are very self-conscious about how everything looks down there (specifically about the vulva), If you're one those women, we get it, that a very private part. But the important thing to remember here is that the women in charge of your bikini wax do this on a daily basis. They see all kinds of shapes and colors and sizes, so don't you worry because there's not going to be any judgment. You're not auditioning for anything, you're just getting rid of some excess hair.
2. Am I going to feel the kind of pain Steve Carell's character felt in "The 40 Year-Old Virgin"?
Ok, if you're doing the bikini wax for the first time your anxiety levels regarding some high level of pain are totally expected. We're not going to lie, there's going to be pain and a lot of discomforts but it won't be as excruciating as Steve's portrayal of his character. Don't get all worked up before your waxing session, you'll see that it's not so traumatic, especially if you're seeing a pro. She'll know how to make the experience less painful and she'll do it quickly.
3. Is it Ok if I come straight from the gym?
Well, no. When you have a dentist's appointment, you brush your teeth before your exam right? And if you have an appointment with your gynecologist you definitely need to be tidy and fresh down there, think along those lines for your waxing session too. So, it would be recommended to take a shower first and assure yourself that everything down there is tidy and dry because if it's not the wax is not going to adhere and the results are not going to be the same.
Also, we're sure that your waxer is going to appreciate it if you wipe that area of any other natural and completely normal bodily fluids (like discharges).
4. Can I have wine before the waxing to temper my nerves?
If you're thinking in terms of a glass of wine, then that's totally OK. But, you should stop at one because showing up to your waxing session drunk is kind of rude. Also, alcohol can make your blood thinner and more sensitive to pain. So, go easy on the booze, a glass of wine to help you relax and that's it.
5. Can I have sex after a bikini wax?
We get that there's an ulterior motive to getting a bikini wax (it's not just for the summer season). you want to look your best for your significant other. A bikini wax, especially a Brazilian wax (while awkward) is going to leave you feeling clean, smooth and confidently sexy for an intimate encounter with your guy. Just don't try it right after your waxing session, friction can cause more irritation and you don't want that. Wait at least 24 hrs, before engaging in any physical activity like sex.
