A Brazilian in Hollywood

I've just been watching an LK Today special on bikini waxing. It was very informative. I've learnt that you should take a paracetamol fifteen minutes before your appointment, wait to be asked before taking your pants off (that's true in so many areas of life), and most importantly of all, "don't have it done mid-cycle because your pain threshold is lower".

Now, putting aside the fact that any beauty treatment which requires you to take painkillers before you start doesn't sound like my cup of tea, why would I even want to have it done mid-cycle? Lycra shorts are hard to get off at the best of times, and my helmet would get in the way.

And besides, beauty's only skin deep. Although I am quite thick-skinned.
