A: Most women undergo some form of ‘prepping’ or ‘primping’ prior to the big occasion!
Whether it’s Mary Lou, Lady Garden, The Velvet Underground or Vajayay, most of us have a name we affectionately call our most feminine parts. But we’re still shy when it comes to giving them the respect they deserve. It’s time for Australian women to treat this precious part of their body with the same level of TLC they lavish on the rest of their body parts: face, skin, hair, fingers and toes!
Valentine’s Day is a celebration of love, and this usually means romantic dinners and quality time with someone special. But this year, the Australian Cervical Cancer Foundation (ACCF) is urging women to remember themselves this day of love with a caring gesture to their most feminine parts by committing to make a date with their doctor for a Pap test. It’s not quite as dreamy as dinner for two under the stars, but you owe it to yourself.
The ACCF is dedicated to eliminating cervical cancer in Australia and in the developing world. The charity did a Newspoll survey and turned up some interesting facts and figures. Apparently 42% of us have some form of personal grooming planned this Valentine’s Day!
Here’s what the survey showed we women would be getting up to in prep for the annual celebration of love:
– 21% will ‘tidy up’ their bikini line area or have a ‘Brazilian’
– 37% will wax, shave or have laser hair removal treatment on their legs
– 25% will style their hair by visiting a hairdresser or with a ‘DIY hairdo’
– 11% will have a manicure or pedicure
Interestingly, when it comes to our next Pap test date, that figure leaps to 97% of us doing some sort of waxing, trimming or shaving
Before we visit the doc:
– 28% organise some form of ‘downstairs grooming’ – from a trim or bikini line ‘tidy up’ to even a ‘Brazilian’
– 47% will wax, shave or laser their legs
