Bikini Waxing Apparently the Hottest Thing in Manscaping Now

Nair Easiwax Hair Removal Wax, one of the many DIY waxing options currently on the market.
Male waxing isn't just for models and porn stars anymore. While we've come to expect smooth bikini lines from the likes of David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo, the New York Times now claims male bikini waxing is entering the mainstream.

Turns out guys are getting their nether regions waxed with a regularity the Times' reporter found surprising. Bliss spa president Mike Indursky (who, it goes without saying, has a vested interest in this mankini waxing fad) told the paper, "It's the gay community, it's the straight community, it's very conservative guys, it's very liberal guys. All different age groups are coming in. It's much, much bigger than we ever thought."

After seeing Steve Carell's chest stripped of hair in The 40 Year Old Virgin, it's hard to imagine our male counterparts going through such an ordeal. The Times article did refer to the pain involved and yeah, "bikini waxes can hurt a lot." The article mentions how some men are known to take Advil prior to the procedure, or how some "have a glass of wine to relax." But as so many women who have come before them know, neither practice is particularly helpful. So it's not shocking that in addition to these waxing services, the sale of less-painful home trimmers is also on the rise.
