My First Brazilian Wax

Why You Shouldn't Have a Guy Do It......

So several years ago I had finally gotten the nerve up to try and get a Brazilian wax. I had been hearing about getting waxed for a while now from several girlfriends of mine. So after some research and saved a little money off to the side, I was ready. I asked for the name and phone number of the place that one of my girlfriends went. I thought that since she went all the time, and was dating one of my roommates, that she would be a good person to ask. She gave me the phone number and I called to set my appointment. 

Well when a older sounding guy answered the phone, that should have been my first clue. I set my appointment for the next week. I was excited and a little nervous. I had never had anything waxed before in my life, so I had no clue what to expect. Looking back, I should have asked her more questions. All I had been told was "It's not as bad as you think." 

So the day of my appointment I showered and got ready to go. The small salon was just a few blocks down the street from my house. I showed up a little early. The salon was empty except a older Chinese guy. Should have been my second clue. 

So he leads me to the little room and instructs me to undress from the waist down, then pulls a divider closed and waits while I get ready. He then comes back in and starts the waxing. OMG did it hurt!!! It was the worst pain EVER, but it only lasts not even a second long! So he completes the front and tells me he's now going to need me to get on my knees and bend over so he can do my "back side" LOL whoa, wait what?!?!? NO ONE told me about this!! He tells me that this is actually the easiest part, as the area has almost no nerve endings. So I do it, and he was right, it really is the least painful part. So I then roll over when he's finished and he starts applying baby oil to help get some of the leftover wax off and to moisturize the area. Well, he's trying to talk to me while doing this and all of a sudden one of his hands slips and goes over a very "special" area. He acts like nothing happened so i think ok maybe he didn't realize since he was talking to me. Then it happened again! I jump and get up and say "whoa", that's when the little old guy said something so crazy! He said "oh you no want a happy ending?" HA HA HA I was shocked that actually was a real thing that happened! I said no, I did not! He then left and pulled the divider back closed. I don't think I have ever gotten dressed faster in my life. I quickly paid the guy and left. 

After I left, as I was driving to my boyfriend's family's house to hang out, I called my friend who goes there. She didn't answer. I was thinking, does she have a happy ending when she goes? Is that why she said it was a great thing to do? Maybe it's why she's always happy? So on my way I stop at a gas station to use the bathroom. I was never told or warned about this part! So, as I sit, I notice that the whole area is red and irritated, lol now as you can imagine adding urine onto freshly waxed skin doesn't feel very good. No, it freaking BURNS!! I think that everyone in the gas station heard my scream! 

Once I was back in my car driving my friend calls me. I started talking a mile a minute asking her all about if she gets a "happy ending" and why she never warned me about peeing afterwards! She's dying of laughter on the other end of the line. She said that he had never asked her about a "happy ending" before and that she hadn't ever went to the bathroom right afterwards. 

So, I never returned to that salon for another wax. I found a great place that had all women working there and had a good second experience. So I would say to anyone ever thinking of getting waxed down there for the first time ever, remember my pain and after you're finished laughing, go to an all female place. Don't go to the bathroom for a few hours afterwards, and it really isn't as bad as you think!
