Grow out your bush in solidarity with your pubescent daughter.
Then you can say, “Everybody gets pubic hair. It’s natural, normal and beautiful.” And mean it.
I was, honestly, so proud of my soft chocolate-and-gold-tinted triangle.
Until a boyfriend mentioned he preferred it groomed another way. Then another boyfriend mentioned he like it groomed further. Then a certain someone said, the Brazillian wax really turned him on.
Oh the pain. The pain! The mother-bleeping pain.
Of course, everyone of those f#$5ers had hairy balls and some even had a hairy back. Which. Is. Not. Hot.
That said, I realize it won’t be the dead of winter forever and that swimwear doesn’t fashionably go to mid-thigh. So, something must be done about the dreaded, nuisance of the bikini line. That day, is coming for my daughter too.
I feel conflicted about this. Should I advise her to go for the chemical acid burn of a hair removal cream, the ingrown hairs and razor burn or just ruin her childhood and adolescence and all her previously romantic notions about femininity by introducing her to genital waxing?
If anyone on this planet has a non-barbaric, non-painful, non-chemical-acid-burn-causing, preferably natural and painless solution to the blasted bikini-line dilemma, please email me. I’m determined to find an agreeable solution for my daughter and yours. I’ll put it on TGR Body.
