This is a question Starting something you couldn't finish

Finnbar says: I used to know a guy who tattooed LOVE across his left knuckles, but didn't tattoo HATE on the other knuckles because he was right-handed and realised he couldn't finish. Ever run out of skills or inspiration halfway through a job?

Just a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down.
Feminist I may be but hairy I am not. I happily shave my legs for my own benefit even though it means blindness for passers-by as the glare from my white flesh burns out their retinas. Anyway, depilation is tedious and time consuming and shaving causes stubble so back in my teenage years I decided to rip out the hairs by sugaring. Sugaring is an ancient blah blah blah beauty technique that essentially involves, yes, smearing hot sugar onto your skin, pressing a fabric strip onto it, then ripping off fabric strip with said sticky sugar and hair adhering to it. This leaves legs smooth and stubble free and regrowth is much softer.

I gathered the equipment: microwaved jar of sticky, syrupy gunk - check. Copious amounts of fabric strips - check. Spatula - check. Nerves of steel - check. I commandeered the bathroom, dusted my limbs with talc and set to work. I scooped up a hot sticky load and dolloped it onto my knee. I pressed the linen strip down tightly and paused for moment to admire my handiwork. I took a deep breath, I grabbed the bottom of the fabric, and I yanked as hard as I could. And then I screamed. Turns out it hurts. A lot. I gazed at my bald knee and whimpered. I tried the bit below. I screamed again. I packed up all the equipment, washed the remainder of the treacle from my leg and swore never to repeat the experience. That was about 16 years ago. The hair has never grown back in that spot. It was probably too traumatised.

Thank god I tried it out on my leg before trying it out on my minge.

I'm no expert on Ladies Grooming...
...but isn't there stuff like Veet that does hair removal painlessly?

It always confuses me that such things exist yet people subject themselves to waxing, which sounds like a horrible experience.

I got the hang of self-waxing a few years later.
Veet just melts off the hair at the skin so regrowth is really quick. Waxing/sugaring tears it out so it takes an age to grow back.

If it's any consolation
The middle and upper class ancient Romans used to employ hair-pluckers who would take them out individually with tweezers.

Men employed them to pluck their beards. Apparently one could generally hear the screams from the hair pluckers' quarters quite a distance away.

Reminds me
of that scene in The 40 Year Old Virgin when he was having his chest waxed.

Nearest I'll come to that sort of pain is nose hair, and that's eye watering enough, ta.

For some reason
When I tear off a band-aid it hurts pretty badly. But when I tried brazilian waxing some months ago, i thought it wasn't too bad. Just a little tug, and a little itch the next day. But I hear the level of pain is different for everybody.

I didn't continue the practice though because I found it made my private parts look like I was only nine years old, which I do not consider very sexy.

Every six weeks
Waxing by the professionals. Marvellous.
