I have spent a lot of money on waxing various areas of my body. More often than not, the spots are extremely sensitive. Why do so many American women (and men) put up with this costly and painful service? Some for their jobs, some because they like the feeling of being smooth, and some because they think that’s what women are supposed to do. Whatever the reason for wanting to rip out your hairs, there’s no shortage of terrifying tales of waxings gone wrong; I mean, hot, sticky substances are involved. Read about some of the worst body waxings that Redditors have given or received like champs.
When I was doing his (yes his) asshole, he clenched and accidentally projectile-sprayed little bits of poo at me. (reytr0)
The first time I tried waxing at home I went straight for the bikini line (I wasn’t the brightest spark). I warmed the wax, went to town, it all went pretty well. I had a bath to wash off the excess wax. Again, it all went pretty well…or so I thought. I put on some brand new underwear. My boyfriend came over, we headed to the bedroom. He went to take off my gorgeous new lace knickers, and they were stuck to me. No budging. Turns out there was some lingering wax residue on my crotch. I spent my Valentine’s evening having my (now ex-) boyfriend very carefully cut me out of my underwear with a pair of nail scissors. It was the least sexy night of my life. (evilnoodle84)
A Little Something Extra
A friend of mine was in beauty school and was doing her practical exams. She had a woman come in, told her to drop her pants, hop on the table, get ready. She put the first strip on, smoothed down, and..RRRRRIP, THWACK. As she tore the strip off, it went flying from her hand and stuck to the wall, spider-leg-hair poking out from the sides, and a tampon hanging from the bottom. Oh, yes. Both of their jaws dropped, and she left the room so the woman could sort herself out, came back and finished off, certain of her failure. (irregularjoe150)
