Bikini Line Best Bets: The Top 5 Hair Removal Techniques for Steamier Sex

Check out the top 5 hair removal techniques for your bikini area

Sexual Bennies:

  • Just as with shaving, you can share this as sexual ritual, especially as part of your foreplay experience.
  • You feel different and heightened sensations on your skin. You'll love the changes.


Description: This procedure is usually done at a salon. To start, you lay on a table wearing your underwear (you can leave your top on). Hot wax is applied to the bikini line (and upper legs) with a flat wooden tongue depressor against the hairy skin. Then a strip of linen is layered on top and pressed down against the wax. Once it's adhered to the hairs, the practitioner rips the whole thing away in one quick motion.

Pros: This is an efficient and easy method for hair removal. Most women get great results: smooth skin, usually appearing as though you've never had hair there at all. (Note: This one is best done by a pro. It's hard to get at those angles on your own, plus it's not easy to put yourself through that much pain. Most nail salons now offer this at low cost, but you also can invest in your own home kit. Be sure to use your head when choosing a salon. Is it clean? Do you know someone else who went there and was satisfied?)

Cons: It smarts! Having someone zip a cloth full of hot sticky stuff across your flesh -- yanking out your hairs -- does have some pain associated with it. And doing this yourself is messy to the max unless you're very skilled. It's also more expensive than shaving or creams. Regular maintenance usually requires a visit every month or two but even occasional trips will be an added cost to your budget. Some women will experience small red bumps.
