i was not surprised to read someone almost died from a brazilian wax. along with tanning, starving oneself, and plastic surgery, extreme hair removal joins the ranks of “beauty” treatments that can kill. disclosure: i’ve had a few in my day … trying to infantalize myself into a warped view of attractiveness. it hurt like a bitch! (no pun intended). my current waxtress refuses to do them, and that makes me like her more.
