I get a ton of Groupon and Peixe Urbano emails everyday. Peixe is like Groupon, daily “coupons” for your city. There is an underlying theme with all of these emails. PEEL, PRIMP, LASER, LYMPHATIC MASSAGE, basically they’re mostly full of beauty deals. Not surprising coming from Brasil, the country of the “Brazilian butt-lift.”
Oferta do dia: Diga Adeus aos Pelos: 75% de desconto em 4 Sessões de Fotodepilação para 2 Áreas Diferentes na D’pil (de R$220 por R$55
Escolha entre Buço, Virilha e/ou Axilas (mulheres) OU Rosto, Nuca e/ou Pescoço (homens)
Yes 4 session of Laser Hair remove for R$55 – Choose from Fluff, Groin and / or armpits (women) or face, nape and / or neck (men). Great deal right? But catch that.. Groin. Ok the last thing I am doing 4 sessions of is laser hair removal. Sure maybe I like a trim, a wax, maybe I’ll feel like getting a Brazilian (do you ever really “feel” like getting a Brazilian??), but that’s my hair darnit, and thinking it’s gone forever is kind of odd. Sure take the hair from my legs, but my private parts is well… private.
So in conjunction with this email, I ran across this article in my RSS feeds from the Guardian, Pubic hair removal: The naked truth It was an interesting article about this new phenomenon. However, for my purpose today, I have one line I wish to share. The article points out that this subject seems to be something that only women seem to be doing, talking (or blogging in my situation), about. Even notice the coupon above, the option for the Groin is not left for men. Ok, it’s probably just the bikini line (being that this is a coupon) and not the full groin area… but still the procedure exists, and is happening to innocent womanly parts world wide.
Ahh yes, the quote… Why this and the “Brazilian” are not plaguing men world wide:
