Lots of Men Are Getting Their, Uh, Bikini Areas Waxed, Apparently
by Danica Lo, Glamour Magazine
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.

I disagree to the above statements. I've been doing the same thing based on the same ideas as in the article. I keep clean shaven because I expect the same from her. Macho doesn't mean sh*t compared to clean shaven. Your wife loves it??? WTH! Is she 80? Are You?
Just my op
