it's warm, and kinda uncomfortable. Then they rip the hair out… and the first few times it sucks shit through a crazy straw, BUUUUT, if you keep up with the waxing, like every 4 weeks or so the hair follicles don't have time to root so they don't hurt when they come out and if your prone to ingrown hairs(like me) waxing results in less ingrown than shaving.

It hurts, but it's not excrutiating pain or anything. It stings pretty bad for the first few seconds, then is a little red and sore afterwards.

i had my first brazilian recently and it hurt a bit... well, it did not really hurt but it was uncomfortable and it will definitely be something i will do again. Although, I already know what the experience is like and im kind of scared to go back but i know thats just my mind playing tricks on me. It really wasn't too bad. The lady i had was really nice and she would stretch my skin so that it would hurt less and i was surprised to find out that when she waxed the lips it hurt less than when she waxed the top.

A lot of it depends on how coarse or thick your hair is. If you have thick coarse hair then it will hurt much more than someone who has very fine hair. Also after a few times it won't hurt as bad.

My wife is getting lasered - it takes 4-6 treatments. With the lousy economy there deals out there. Even though it's more - if you take the long view it'll end up saving you money - not to mention the pain and grief.

sigh. I really wish I could afford to get this done, not to mention, I am a little nervous about it.

That's like asking someone if it hurt to get their tattoo. Yes, it hurts. You are RIPPING your hair follicles out lol. A better question would be "Is the pain worth it." I want to say no. I can take a lot of pain, but for a weekly thing...it isn't worth it. A wedding or something of the sort? Yes.

"sucks shit through a crazy straw"

You are my new favorite person.

I'm a fairly tough girl. I can take a beating that will mark me for weeks, but I used to have my brows wax and I would CRY like crazy.

Cry for my Momma.

It hurt.

I can't imagine having my girl stuff waxed.

Depends on how sensitive you are, waxing just didn't work for me but I am having great success with epilation.

If you are looking for something to try at home look into epilators (mechanical tweezers). They pull hair by the root like waxing but involve less prep and cleanup in my opinion.

First, you would need to go to a good professional. Home waxing by self or friends is just asking for pain.

Next, take advil or other pain reliever about 45 minutes before you plan to start. This will really help take the edge off.

Lastly, don't judge the pain level by your FIRST time. The first time will be more painful than the follow-ups. I would rate the first time about a 6 and the follow-ups in the 2-3 range.

Finding someone who is good can help ease the pain because their technique is going to be better, more gentle, than others.

As for if it is worth the pain, I think it is much less painful than shaving. Follow-up waxing would be every 4-8 weeks, depending on your growth.

If you try it, commit to at least one follow-up and you will be surprised at how much easier it gets.

I'll be honest, it does hurt. And I usually have a high pain threshold.
