    hey everyone, I jsut wondered if anyone out there has ever gone completely bare, 'down there' ya know? Im just thinkin about doing it and wondered how painful it actually is and the best methods of becomming fuzz free? Is it possible to do it succesfully yourself or is it best to go proffessional? Im just thinking of minimum embarassment!!! :confused: :p:

    as a girl, i waxed down there last year just to try it, and it wasn't that bad doing it myself. i wouldn't want someone else doing mine, just to save humiliation.

    If you shave then when it grows back it really itches!

    I've tried the Veet Rasera stuff. You can only use it on the bikini line though, so you couldn't go completely bare. It's ok, but it really smells and I didn't particularly like using it, very messy and the hairs grew back quickly.

    Yep i found the exact same thing, and shaving lead to great discomfort too....which is why ive booked my first bikini wax for next week! im quite scared actually, lol. i bought a home kit, but i wimped out and used it on my legs. ive had my legs done about 4 or 5 times and found the pain fine... but something tells me bikini waxes are wayy more painful :eek: i'm only having the bikini line done, not brazilian/hollywood etc.

    Fingers crossed it goes okay, except now you mentioned the embarassment, sounds stupid but i kinda forgot about that! i know u can sit in your underwear tho.. but still x

    Ooh good luck! I think I'm going to try some of those cold wax strips.. if it's only on the bikini line it shouldn't be too bad, right?!

    Ahhh i think you're braver than me. i personally wouldnt trust my own hand! :eek: And the idea of cold strips just remind me of a bit of sellotape ripping the hair out....youuuuch!! ..not that that would work.

    Ill probably be *****ting it when im in there, even though the women are really nice (i went to get a price list today).

    Does anyone know how you sit/lie to get it done?? lol *niiice* x

    i think, you dont need to shave it, just trim the damn thing... shaving it is really itchy when the hair starts to grow back.

    There's something about having nothing that reminds me of pre-adolescents...

    Anyway best method is the epilator - it rules for any kind of hair removal.

    never tried that, what exactly is it and does it hurt? I always thought waxing was the best method for hair removal?

    I have nothing and personally way prefer it. I shave cos its the wimps method. You have to keep it up or you'll get nasty stubble but that's the same with any hair removal, it's painless and once you're used to doing it it's really quick and easy. It itches if you let the hair regrow/don't moisturise though, but once you're doing it regularly that goes away.

    Yep - ones for sensitive skin. Make sure you're really careful if you do it though, you don't wanna get a cut there!!
