This is a question Too much information

Rakky writes "A friend of mine, when quizzed why she was late to the pub, announced 'I was at accident and emergency, having a stuck tampon removed. They had to have a right old dig around for it.' Suffice to say, no one was interested in their Scampi Fries after that."

When have you shared just that little too much?

Waxing... and another painful hair removal story
Waxing is one of those things, like shaving, skin care products and reactions to alcohol that are different for each person, so if someone tells you it will work in a specific way *don't believe them*.

I've tried waxing my arms and legs with over the counter waxing products. It's not quite as effective as using professional wax blocks, and probably more painful, but it does the job.

Arms are tricky things - either try it on the more visible but less sensitive forearms, or the less visible but more sensitive underarm.. I went for the forearm - wax on, over the hair, gather courage and riiiip. owowowowowow. Normally it ends there - and you move onto the second strip, which is how it works with my legs. Nice and smooth for weeks.

Unfortunately it left the skin red and tingling. For 24 hours! From that you can guess I'll never be letting wax anywhere sensitive, even if I did want to do so.

Of course this pales into insignificance with the exploits of a friend's ex. He arrived back home after a few beers.

What would you do beered up? Watch a film? Cook something particularly unhealthy, or epilate your scrotum?

For those that aren't familiar with hair removal, there are options ranging from shaving (works well, needs doing every couple of days, risk of cutting), waxing (works, can't be used on face, risk of skin inflammation and ingrowing hairs), chemicals (bit nasty, can't be used on face) and epilating. Epilating pulls a big group of hairs out by their roots in a circular motion, pulling the skin tight.

This is not a good idea in a scrotum, which is never designed to be pulled tight. I understand there was a lot of blood..

Length? More than his after that escapade, I bet..
