No matter how busy or intense we often find our lives, every girl makes time for her pamper sessions. Personally I’m not a fan of manicures or pedicures – I HATE strangers filing my nails, the very thought of it as I’m typing this sends chills down my back – and yes my friends think I’m an alien for it.
But I do value my nail-time at home, my longer showers when I’m shaving, my wax sessions, etc. It’s that activity that breaks up our routine and lets us unwind a little and give our bodies some loving.
Some of those pampering sessions are to be had with friends, like a mani or pedi. But as I was leaving home for my wax appointment the other day, I heard this from my husband: “Can I come with you and watch?”
Now, I will always love my husband’s enthusiasm and interest in what’s going on in my life. He’s one of the best and most patient listeners I know and he has a talent for feigning interest in girly issues, God bless him. But really? Sitting in on my wax session?
I’d really like to get your feedback on this! Have any of you had a partner accompany you to your wax session? And I’m not just talking a standard leg wax or something minimal like an eyebrow wax – I’m talking full Brazilian.
Why would your man want to watch some lady smear hot liquid on your special area (as sexual as that may sound..!), proceed to rip at it with such force that it feels like she’s using your body to work out her arm muscles, and leave your skin raw? Because that’s an image that will turn on any guy..! (Sarcasm intended.) Not to mention the vicarious pain and subsequent squirming they’d be displaying.
On the other hand, your partner is supposedly the person you share everything with and can be the most open and comfortable with. I cry in front of my husband, get dressed in front of him, go to the toilet while he’s in the room (for Number 1 that is, there’s no way I’ll do Number 2 in front of him! Is that normal?), and shower together.
