Dare to go bare?
In this post, Pinoy Guy Guide contributor, Tim, shares his own experience on bikini wax.
Gone were the old tales when the art of waxing was only reserved for the opposite sex for that hair-free baby feeling. In today’s time, even men – yes, as in us guys – are now opting for a hair-free feeling, ahem, down south.
We do not usually discuss such topics to our guy peers whenever we talk about vanity. But did you know that going hair-free down south has its own advantages? In terms of health, it reduces sweat down south especially when you are exposed to the sun therefore, making you feel more comfortable than ever. Also, in terms of aesthetics, no unwanted hair would be seen when you are wearing just your underwear or swimming trunks. You will look clean, neat and soft. Best of all, it will give emphasis down there.

Bikini wax only covers hair above the jewel and those that are in our inner thighs. If you want, you can suggest to have all the hair above completely removed, or leave just a little, or have the treasure trail hair waxed or not. In my case though, I refused having my treasure trail waxed.
My experience of Bikini wax was caused by pure curiosity on how it feels like. For first-timers, the typical “ouch and &@*#@” are inevitable. As a matter of fact, I even suggested a minute break from the therapist for each waxed area. It took me almost an hour for the session, and several breaks in-between in order to restore myself.
Words to describe the results thereof are: clean, smooth, soft, and neat.
Note that bikini wax is different from Brazilian wax. Bikini only covers the hair above and that in our inner thighs, while Brazilian covers all hair beneath down under, including those which we are unaware of.
For the PGG readers out there, would you dare to have a bikini/Brazilian wax in order to save yourself from trimming?

just wondering, how much does it cost?
no thank you..
wow.. galing! pero i prefer not to do it.. hehe
I don’t think there’s something wrong with it, contrary to what other people believe.
However, wala din naman akong plano kasi hindi ako sanay, hehe. Although minsan gusto kong mag attempt lalo na kapag mainit! whew!
truth be told:
men getting a bikini wax is pretty gay.
no thanks for me as well.
Medically speaking hygienic sya… pro as my clinical instructor would tell “your treasure is much cleaner as compared to your mouth” so I wonder if it’s worth the effort. Ingat lng po kasi minsan they intensify the pheromones na andyan.
Just wondering, wala ba wax for hairs under the magic balls papuntang behind? nakaka bother po minsan. I’m thinking ipapalaser ko sya if may peara na ko… hehehe irritating minsan
when i go to beach and wear my trunks for sunbathing, thats the only time i shave hairs from my inner thigh and some hairs that are peeking out
MD ka ba? can I get your email? have some questions to ask lng… Thanks!
Chris, there is actually a product on WAXING which a saw on the net and there was a video about Male Bikini Waxing… It was colored Dark Blue and it was very effective. However, I FORGOT THE LINK got lost in all those advertisements.
So give a blog about this on… Do research so that we will appreciate the post (hindi ung “Magpapa Bikini Wax ka sa Salon!”)
i don’t wanna do that. kakahiya pati!!! parang nagpapatuli hehehe
Nahihiya akong mag trunks kasi yung pubes ko sa side lumalabas… di naman siya ganun karami pero nakikita pa din, @cataclysmic what is ur e-add..??? thnks.. may itatanong lang sana.
hey i heard that thing…i am looking forward for that. can i find waxes in markets today? i mean not in a special salon or private salons?
hell!!! yeah, i would!!
nope im not an md, though i have a vast knowledge about medicine=)
Is there a wax or something that will help you remove your pubes on your own, so you don’t need to go to salon anymore.
I’ll just shave it off myself. Tipid pa..
Gumamit ka na lang ng veet……
where can i have this wax?
@Chris, Pink Palour in Makati offers brazilian waxing for men. I guess they offer promos if you book and pay in advance. 🙂
This is a bit sensitive, but do waxing professionals hold your…. or touch any part of your…. I think its a bit awkward, regardless of the gender of the wax therapist (if that’s how you call them)
[…] call as Level 3 of manscaping. This is the level wherein some men would go to waxing salons like Lay Bare to have all their body hair […]
