I’ve previously talked about NoStrips Waxing Salon on this blog before and I constantly rave about them on social media. In the last 3 months, I’ve consistently relied on them to take care of my eyebrows, upper lip, underarms, lower legs and my Brazilian waxing and/ or threading.
It felt a little risque to talk about something COMPLETELY NORMAL/ NATURAL as a vagina on Facebook and Youtube but I’m a woman and I am not ashamed to talk about the part of my body that gives me so much power and surprisingly, the outcome was pleasant.
If I’m being honest, I think it’s so taboo and so unmodern of people to be ashamed to talk about their vaginas and the care that it needs. Not only is it naive, it also brings up a larger problem such as: are women given the proper education about their bodies?
At a party I attended recently, I shared the importance of Kegel exercises in women especially after birth and other vaginal exercises which are important for any and every woman and I was surprised at the reaction of my peers. It was so foreign to them that in return, I felt like I shouldn’t be talking about it so openly. But you know, I never know when it’s ok or not ok to say stuff so I have nothing to be sorry about. It’s just a vagina. It’s not like I was being racist.
So I decided to create this video where I sat down and talked to my waxpert Jen about Brazilian waxing and everything that any typical person would ask them. I am literally just touching the SURFACE (literally & figuratively) in this video, but the feedback I’ve received has definitely made me realize how much more we still have to learn. I like that I am realizing these things though.
I would love to talk about it so more but maybe in another post as I think there is potential for this topic. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy this video and the insight I have to share with you this afternoon.
Again especially to the ladies, do not feel ashamed to get the care/ help that you need. It’s so liberating.
