BIKINI WAXES ARE, by their very nature, unpleasant at best, and agonising at worst.

Most of us have at least one horror story, and if you don’t, you very likely have a mate who does.

I have one. Shocking, says you.

Without disclosing too many indelicate details, I’ll just say that it involved a very inexperienced therapist, a surplus amount of wax, and a pair of scissors.

I’ll also just add that the scissors was required to cut gingerly through the wax which had been applied so liberally it had rendered the body part it was covering fairly useless; I’ll leave the rest to your imagination.

Seeing a stranger, to whom you’ve entrusted your nether regions, approach with a scissors is a surreal experience.

And not one I ever want to repeat.

Bikini waxes; when they’re bad, they’re bad, but even when they’re grand, they’re not great.

And Twitter perfectly illustrates this whenever it turns its attention to the topic.

1. Remind us again why we do this.

2. Expert agony though, to be fair.

3. Did she actually delight or were you just hallucinating with pain?

4. And then there’s the people who have endured one with one.

5. May as well double down, amirite?

6. This is a public service announcement.

7. Oh, joyous.

8. Especially when they approach you with a pair of scissors.

9. Gotta love those pamper sessions.

10. But the thing is, you probably will go there again.
