My associate Dr. Larue alerted me to an article in the New York Post about moms bringing in their pre-teen daughters to get waxed. He knew it would upset me. Not that it takes a village to upset me. One spa owner believes it’s good for girls to start young and suggests that in ten years, “waxing children will be like taking them to the dentist or putting braces on their teeth.”
Another advocate for early waxing is Nair, whose hair removing line called ‘Nair Pretty‘ is clearly aimed at kids. Check out the kid in their ad.
Childhood will soon be no place for children. These developments are not good news for Lourdes. Let’s hope Madonna doesn’t read the New York Post.
In a more appealing direction, men’s underwear companies are reaching out to men who want a little oomph in their pants. Men, you work hard, you play hard; why not LOOK hard? The brand C in 2 makes some nice briefs that are designed with ‘Trophy Shelves’, “which enhances a man’s assets with incomparable support.” Compare the Trophy brief with the standard D & G brief.
If women need to wax, they should fucking well expect a Trophy in return, don’t you think?
