  1. Always make sure you have all the supplies.

“I regularly wax myself at home using supplies I get from my esthetician friend. I had an afternoon to myself and decided to give myself a wax. I finished my vagina and moved on to my butt. I opened my cheeks, spread the wax, and reached for a strip, only to realize the box was empty. I waddled around my apartment trying to find something that would work. But I was too late. Five minutes later, my butt cheeks were sealed shut with wax. I had to call my friend to bring a special lotion over to unglue them. I immediately ordered a bottle from her to prevent future emergencies.”

2. It’s easy to miss patches when you DIY it.

“I decided to try one of those at-home wax kits from CVS. It actually worked really well! But later in the evening, when I went to the bathroom with a girlfriend, I realized that I couldn’t pull my thong down. I must have done a bad job removing all the wax, because my underwear was stuck to me. My friend had to come into the stall to help me—we ended up taking a metal nail file and using it to pry my panties away from my skin.”

3. Beer, hot showers and Nair don’t mix.

"I'm in the shower and rubbed the lotion all over my junk. It was a great shower, good steam, and I had a shower beer with me...Lost track of time, and left the hair remover on for 20 minutes. Had some 1st degree burns every where. Not so great."


4. A chest wax doesn’t sound so bad now.

“I used to trim [my chest hair], but for summer I wanted it completely gone. And I didn’t want to deal with shaving it again and again all season.”

“My chest hair came off, but my nipples burned. The complication is you have to wipe the Nair off, so I was pretty convinced my nipples were coming off, too. When I think about it, I can still feel it.”

5. If you’re gonna trim, make sure you look before you snip.

“I was trimming my pubic hair with a pair of scissors, and I accidentally caught a fold of skin [down there]. It just cut a tiny ‘v’, but it bled like crazy and kept bleeding for days. I thought I was going to die.”
