I like the idea, although I'm not sure BBDO is really conveying Gillette's message effectively here. I mean, the fluffy grass looks so nice and fresh that it almost makes me want to stop shaving, and there's no grass/hair for the legs. How many women are going around with hairy legs and plenty of underarm and nether hair? Still, it's attention-grabbing. Do you think this is smart advertising, or could BBDO have done better by Gillette? Oh, and if you want to see the guy version (yes, they're equal opportunity!), just keep reading.
Looking for a sweet way to remove hair? Sugaring might be just the thing for you. This centuries-old method provides longer-lasting results than shaving, and it's less painful than waxing. It just might be a (relatively) easy way to get rid of unwanted fuzz during beach season. Get the scoop — watch now!
On the other hand, Amanda comes off as very aggressively anti-shorn in this song, saying that women without pubic hair "look like an eight-year-old," adding "it's sad." As someone who genuinely likes smooth skin, I was a little bummed at the put-downs. It's undermining and seems out of character, especially since just last year, Amanda told The New York Times: "You know what’s really cool? Wake up every morning, decide what you feel like doing, and do it." Well, I woke up and decided, and I'm pretty happy with it; I just wish Amanda was, too. What do you think about the "necessity" to shave? And if you want to see Amanda's (extremely, really NSFW but fun) video, just keep reading.
This week, Psychology Today examined how the Brazilian wax trend impacts sexuality. The article accepts that each generation produces its own trends (with the help of the porn industry), but also wonders if the new expectation makes young women feel obliged to wax and shave. The whole process is timely, costly, and painful, and it's troubling to think that women must alter their bodies just to please their partners' aesthetic preferences. But there's another side of the debate. One study found that women who wax report more sexual satisfaction and better "genital self-image." Couldn't that confidence come from knowing you're meeting the expectation?
Perhaps the key is groom yourself according to your own preference, not someone else's. What's yours?

But how many people are getting Brazilians, anyway? It's not like there's a hair census that reveals the trends of the nether regions. When it comes to depilation, I'm definitely a "to each her own" kind of girl. While some people wax or shave everything, plenty of others don't. So what do you think? Is Brazilian waxing really as popular as Janeane says?
Women today feel the pressure, or preference, to rid themselves of body hair, and now society has paid men back by increasingly expecting them to do the same. "As hairless torsos have become the norm for male models and actors" explains the New York Times, "below-the-neck hair removal has gone mainstream."Unfortunately the paper discovered that the task of male shearing often falls on the woman. After all, it's pretty hard to reach the middle of your back. Luckily, Remington shaver makers have invented a telescopic handle that will help men with unwilling partners, or no partner at all, shave those hard-to-reach places.
It's one thing to cut the hair on a friend's head, but have you ever helped your man manscape?
