Lots of Men Are Getting Their, Uh, Bikini Areas Waxed, Apparently

The New York Times has been on a beauty streak lately—last week, the newspaper of record was all over nail art; this week, they're breaking the news on how Brazilian bikini waxes are all the rage... for men.

Yes, it's true!

“What we’re finding is, it’s everybody,” Mike Indursky, president of Bliss spas, told the Times . “It’s the gay community, it’s the straight community, it’s very conservative guys, it’s very liberal guys. All different age groups are coming in. It’s much, much bigger than we ever thought.”

The story cites examples of "visibly depilated men" (PS. that's my new favorite phrase of the day) such as David Beckham and The Situation and even found guys who were willing to cop to getting waxes... down there.
Like this guy:

Evan Scott, 32, a music producer who lives in Murray Hill, has been getting a more-basic bikini wax for about two years.

“I like to represent myself in a certain way, from no clothes to fully buttoned up, and I think that this is an extension of my overall presentation,” he said.

Noting the prevalence of bikini waxes among women, Mr. Scott also suggested that what’s good for the goose is good for the gander.

“If I have that expectation of someone else, I probably would want to return the favor,” he said.

What do you think? Have you heard about this trend from guys you know? Do you know any guys who've gotten bikini waxes? Spill it in the comments! I'm dying to know.

Women are doing men's jobs (military for example), men are shaving their legs, homosexuality is being forced into the "politically correct" column...sheesh, the sexes are being homogenized.

 

Why do we always ruin the best things in life?   Men should be men and women should be women and they should simply enjoy the difference...while there still is one.

well...i think that should be left for everyone to decide by himself...me for my part... i enjoy it getting waxed...before i shaved my bikini area... but it is friendlier to the skin to get waxed.
If we can do that to ourselves, why not the men too. :)

As a female I feel that a man with gross hair that gets left in my mouth after oral is a man who has no respect for the woman he's sleeping with. Would you DUDES wanna suck hair? It's not enjoyable, it ruins the sex, and turns the mood from love to annoyed in an instant. I don't care how macho you wanna be. That's nothing but a dumb act that makes you men look like idiots. The way you compete over who's the more manly man - makes me think you men forgot that (for straight men) you dudes need to please the woman's preferences in how much pubic hair SHE want you to have down there IF YOU WANT HER TO GO DOWN THERE! Is it really more manly for a man to willingly choose to be less sexually attractive to WOMEN just so he can keep the esteem of other DUDES! Come on! Get over your egos and just do what the women like.

Another way for companies to make money off people for being human.  First deodorants, then make up for women, and nail polish.  Give me a break.  This is NOT about hygiene (wash with soap and water, as needed).  When did prebuescence become sexy?  Yuck!

I don't care for hairy men, not at all, and I am not young.  I am pushing 70.  I find hair just as disgusting on men as I do on women,...so god bless them for putting themselves through the discomfort, nay, pain of having the hair removed.

I say, "more power to them." To anyone, really! As a woman, hygiene is very important to me and if a guy wants to be clean and hairless for himself, his woman, or potential women....go right ahead. I love it. It doesn't make you gay...it means you give a damn about cleanliness and how your partner feels.

Oh mother Mc Duck, where is your feather? Guys waxing privates? that hurts as hell, no thanks, i'll live that to my self, to take care of. And about legs, i even don't have to wax, because hair don't grow on it, my legs skin look's like polished, all ready, not a one hair, all the way up to private place. But i guess some guys need that. It's up to them.

    What to wear on every kind of date

    It’s the best and worst time to be a single girl in the dating world. On the one hand, past generations of women didn’t have the freedom, financial independence, access to birth control (depending on your state and employer, of course), or plethora of options to meet new people—online and off—that we enjoy today. On the other hand, they also didn’t have to worry about sexting, selecting the best selfie for their profile picture, or accidentally swiping right on a coworker.

    Your guide to hair accessories

    If you’re anything like me, you probably haven’t gone anywhere near a hair accessory for years—save for the few stretched-out Goody elastics tumbling around at the bottom of your handbag, the slightly rusty bobby pins gathering dust at the back of your medicine cabinet or that scrunchie you use to pull your hair back when washing your face in the morning. For as long as I can remember, hair adornments have been slapped with somewhat of a childish reputation; when’s the last time you saw a girl over the age of 11 wearing a barrette or witnessed a woman past her teen years sporting a headband?
