Visitors: 313

More and more women are considering a bikini or Brazilian wax and in this article we will look at both the advantages and disadvantages of waxing so you can decide to have this popular beauty treatment.

Waxing of the pubic region has become more popular than ever before and although seen as a new trend it is actually thousands of years old.

Waxing was popular for example in India, Persia and Greece and has many advantages and the advantages of waxing are being discovered by more and more women today, with both forms of waxing becoming ever more popular.


A hairless pubic region is liberating for many women, it is clean allows skimpy bikinis and swim wear and revealing lingerie to be worn, without any embarrassment if they have thick or strong pubic hair growth.

Last put not least, it is seen as sensual by both men and women and also helps many women achieve more satisfying sex.

A waxing treatment for each takes around 30 minutes although like a manicure it must be done regularly every 3 – 4 weeks.

What is the difference between a Brazilian and bikini wax

Bikini waxing, removes only the hair that is visible around the bikini line the Brazilian wax removes hair from the front, back and everything in between.

A ‘landing strip’ is left on many occasions however many people go for everything removed from the area. If you are a wax virgin you should try the bikini wax first before trying the more extreme Brazilian.


The main problem most women have are following

1. The embarrassment factor

Of having some take hair off their pubic region, however like your doctor, your waxer or therapist, have seen it all before and it is really no more embarrassing than that, or changing in front of other girls at the gym.

2. The pain factor

Yes, it can be painful, as wax is applied to your pubic hair, the hair removed from the roots and this is the same for both the bikini and Brazilian wax.

In most cases the pain is not as bad as anticipated and as you have to have them regularly (like many beauty treatments) the pain becomes less in time as more waxings are done.


Most women believe that the advantages far out weigh the disadvantages and that it’s a small price to pay for a clean, sensuous and bald look.

In other articles in this series we will look at the exact procedures used costs and how to find the best waxers.
