So I just did my first leg wax...

...well, left-calf wax, using microwaveable wax that is applied directly onto the skin with one of the glorified popsicle sticks that comes with the little tub and then peeled or ripped off, depending on how much the wax has cooled. I was underwhelmed. It didn't hurt, and it sure as hell smells better than Nair and its competitors in the lotion depilatory field, but it was a bit sloppy and it left a lot of straggling survivors. I'll probably try it one or two more times then return to my trusty soap and razor. Or maybe I'll finally cough up for electrolysis, or the laser thingy.

On the off chance that someone had helpful hints for those who would be less hirsute, I did a lj search for “waxing” as an interest. As soon as I saw it listed, I had to check out gothmakeuptips, and I was delighted to find an entry on how to deal with those embarassing white deodorant streaks. I’d never thought about it before, but that would be problem for your average goth, wouldn’t it?

sorry for intruding, i don't like to post links to NC-17 material in the general public of the community.... many visitors under-age.

here is the link http://creed207.tripod.com/alex/provocateur/ once, you have read that, entitled Provocateur (40 chapters in all - you may never sleep again...) it's a cross between Scarlet & Black and The Bounty, the sequel is entitled Sacred & Profane and can be found same site, just go back to the sublevels home page, and look for the title. lots and lots of good material there, alex is a fine storyteller.
