Sci Thigh

The latest advance in Brazilian waxing is—zap!—Brazilian lasers.


Look, I’ll have lasers shot into my eyes any day. But down there?!? Oh, relax. It’s just an intense flash of light aimed at your groin. People have used lasers for years to remove hair; now they’re just crossing the bikini line. And the pain is nothing compared to a waxing.

Speaking of which, what do the J. sisters think? Even the wax goddesses, who now do sungas (male bikinis!), are getting a laser.

But what if, ahem, it misses? No fears. As Cindy Barshop of Completely Bare puts it, “They use lasers in brain surgery.”
