December’s busy social calendar often contains a party or two in your pants. Let’s be adults about it for a second – many forms of holiday cuddling and snuggling don’t always have very wholesome conclusions. Why do you think so many people are born in September?
I don’t know about you, but it’s hard to get into the mood when your man is forced to travel through a forest in order to reach his destination. So if you’re looking to trim the hedges before the real party starts, might I suggest that you do it with a Brazilian bikini wax at Strip Ministry of Waxing. They created a yummy gingerbread-scented wax so you can continue feeling the holiday spirit while the hair is being ripped from your nether regions.
Whether you’re a Brazilian virgin or a seasoned veteran, Strip Ministry of Waxing is a great place to get the lawn mowed. They only have two stores in Manila, but each of them are decorated exquisitely, with a unique theme. I mean, just how adorable are those lime green doors and the leopard print walls?
Another reason to trust Strip is their serious commitment to hygiene. At the start of the session, you are given a personal waxing kit, containing wipes and several wooden sticks. Strip’s scented waxes are the kind that are melted in a pot, releasing their sweet aroma as they are heated. The sticks are for Strip’s obsession with never double-dipping into the hot wax, so can relax and never worry about seeing a stranger’s hairs coating yours.
It’s easy to relax about getting a Brazilian when the aroma of gingerbead fills the room. The scent almost reminds me of my mom’s baking, which is a nice thing to think about with every painful jerk of the wax. Gentle and skilled as Strip’s waxers may be, the process still hurts. If you don’t have childhood memories of baking to distract you from the pain, you can amuse yourself by admiring their cheeky advertisements for other services. You can also try chatting up the friendly waxer, who’ll happily make small talk with you as she does her work. My tattoos and piercings are always a great conversation starter, especially among waxers who are pierced themselves.
The affair is over in no more than 20 minutes, which is perfect if you’ve got social gatherings or last-minute shopping planned for the day. Your waxer will remind you that you need to take care of your freshly mowed lawn by avoiding hot showers and any festivities that involve being pantsless. Then it’s off to the counter for you, where you get a little gingerbread man of your own to make the experience even sweeter.
Strip Ministry of Waxing’s gingerbread wax is only available for a limited time, so experience it while you still can! Their branches can be found at the 2nd floor of Serendra in Bonifacio High Street, Taguig City, and at the 4th floor of Greenbelt 5, Ayala Center, Makati City.
