A bit of an embarassing question....
Ok, so my husband and I have booked our first trip to Couples for September 2011! We have decided on CN! I know I have plenty of time to ponder this, but.... I was just wondering, how do you keep from getting chaffed, irritated in the bikini area if you are in a wet suit all day? especially if you are newly "groomed"?
If you are not into the AN scene....
Get a bikini wax.....I find that works well for the entire trip and we stay in Jamaice for 10 or 11 nights!
Highly recommend the wax!
I starting getting brazillians about 4 years ago and I will NEVER EVER go back to shaving. The first couple of times it is a little painful/uncomfortable, but the hair starts thinning out and you start getting used to it, from then on it is just slightly bothersome in some spots and feels like nothing in others. A couple of words of advice:
~Do not go to a nail/hair salon, especially for your first time. Go to a place that either specializes in waxing or is a full day spa. They will have professionals that will make the experience as comfortable as possible.
~Make sure to use a softwax with strips for your first time. It is much quicker and in my opinion much less painful. Shouldn't take any more than 10 or 15 minutes. The hard wax takes MUCH longer.
~My first few times I took a couple of advil and/or tylenol about a half hour before hand. If you are super worried or find yourself with a lot of anxiety a shot of tequila or some other liquid courage will help (although many would say alcohol is a bad idea, it was the way I got through the first couple of times without a problem- now I don't even need the advil/tylenol).
~Expect to spend $65ish plus tip. A lot of places offer first timer incentives of like $5-15 off.
Hope that helps and trust me when I say it is TOTALLY worth it. Anyone that I have ever known that has gone wax doesn't go back to shaving.
PS...have fun at Couples!!
