Savage Love: Wax on, you know the rest

I thought your advice to SCRAPE, the guy whose penis was suffering due to his girlfriend’s shaved-but-stubbly labia, was spot-on — except in regards to waxing. As both a former professional waxer and a woman with very coarse pubic hair, I hope you don’t mind if I correct you: Waxed hair does not grow back as prickly as shaved hair. The hair follicle tapers from its root. When shaved, it is cut straight across at its thickest point. The hair, as it grows, continues to grow from there. When waxed, the hair is removed at its root, and a new hair will grow intact, with the softer taper. I cannot shave without extreme discomfort during regrowth (like needles in my undies!). SCRAPE’s girlfriend’s post-wax stubble may still be too uncomfortable for him, but it will doubtless be an improvement. Honestly, I’d be amazed if she’s not currently in more pain than he is!

Thanks for sharing, SM.
