Metrosexuals Are Out of Control

Post placeholder image

Metrosexuals are out of control. Not only are they obsessing about their weight, clothing and various hair/body products, they are now waxing their balls. I kid you not people. Read Newsweek article below. These boys are out of control. Thinking that have gone over the edge and need to be reeled back in.

Brazilians for the Boys. No Seriously.
Newsweek: Jan. 19 issue – As three Wall Street types left an Upper East Side salon in Manhattan last week, a beautician told a NEWSWEEK reporter: “It’s not their backs I’m waxing. It’s their b-lls.” There is such a thing as being too well groomed, but apparently not for some upwardly mobile heterosexual men. In several major metro areas – New York, L.A., Atlanta, Washington, D.C. – men are paying up to $100 for bikini waxes that take it all off. Ken Knox, associate editor at Adult Video News, says, “For years, gay men have been shaving and using the Nair hair-removal cream. But it’s the straight guys who seem to be doing the more extreme waxing.”
There are powerful motives at play. Men claim it makes oral sex more sensual, says Lidia Tivichi of New York’s Kimara Ahnert salon. “Without the hair, everything down there looks bigger,” she says. “I know they like that, too.” When the pain is unbearable, men use anesthetic cream before appointments. Still, Cynthia Esser-Thorin, who owns Pink Cheeks in Sherman Oaks, Calif., says that at times “we have to pull a man off the ceiling.” (She uses her feet to steady the hairiest guys.) Not Ron, a divorced 39-year-old banker from L.A.: “Conversation helps. If [a waxer] talks to me midtear, I can keep my mind off it.”

    Funny that you gals would be surprised that I said/wrote “balls.” Boy, you should hear me at work sometimes. Surrounded by a bunch of sales guys, I am forced to talk like a sailor sometimes. Of course, I do try and clean it up when I’m outside of work.

    the idea of a brazillian makes me cringe. i do not want some woman’s hands on my nether regions and i’d probably kick her.

    I can’t imagine getting all the hair waxed down there. This is ridiculous – not to mention crazy. What will they think of next? Better yet what will they do next?

    Jesus Christ! Just trim it for God’s sake. No itching or in-growns. Too much free time!

    I couldn’t be with a man that was that high maintenance. So I suppose it’s a good thing that they spend so much time on their appearance so they can be easily identified….and avoided.
    I know a non-metrosexual who’s been waxing for years because, directly quoted, “It makes me look bigger. That’s why the porn guys do it.” He is now 33 years old and dates a 19 year old. I guess he figures she’s too young to realize that looks can be deceiving.
