Q: Should I get a Brazilian wax the day before my boyfriend comes home? A: Not unless he's blind.
Ouch! Make sure the person waxing you speaks enough English to understand when you say "STOP!".
Dear Go-To Girl,
So I've been wanting to get a Brazilian bikini was for ages now and my boyfriend has been away all summer so now seems like a perfect time. What's the recovery like? If I get waxed the day before he comes home, will I be in too much pain to fuck all weekend?
We haven't seen each other in so long that I can't tolerate anything standing in the way of us having constant sex for at least 3 days.
Having had some recent experience in this area, I can tell you that a Brazilian wax will not leave you in too much pain to have sex (a friend of mine describes the feeling as "hurts so good") but your area will look puffy, red, and unappealing, which is kind of the diametric opposite of what you're going for when you get a Brazilian.
I think you need a few days to visually recover, but you can definitely have sex right away. The part that hurts the most is the mons; the vaj itself recovers remarkably fast. The good news about a bikini wax is that the whole process only takes about 20 minutes: a solid, excruciating 20 minutes. And then it's over.
Go Forth and Wax,
