I first want to write about some things all vagina-terrific because it’s my blog & I’ll do what I want to.
1) My pal Jamie Mareno hosted at an event in February titled Party (period)* Days For Girls Fundraiser at The Brick House Brewery in Patchogue, NY. It was to benefit Days For Girls which is a non profit to give every woman and girl in the world feasible quality hygiene and health education. The event raised $ to fund feminine hygiene kits. I thought this was a really great event and an issue that does not get enough traffic. You can follow the Facebook event page for further info. I posted some things to that page I thought the readers would have an interest in. There were news stories about the tampon tax battle, a woman’s project of writing feminist messages on maxi pads and posting them, and a theprojectperiod.comThe Facebook event page: https://www.facebook.com/events/752785934854535/
2) Important event happening in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn April 2nd. The event is The Mother Of All Baby Showers at the 68th precinct 333 65th St 9:30-12:30 The event is to support local victims who have fled domestic violence. Items to bring for donations, unwrapped, “baby shower” gifts:

Thank you for reading about and maybe even getting involved with those matters. Now onto the “gossip column!” In latest waxing news…….
My latest hairdo occurred at BeBe Nail Salon 541 3rd Ave in Murray Hill.
This is one of my more uneventful waxes to report. Which I suppose I a good thing, a positive review in a way. No hair coated tools or searing flesh to chime in about. It’s the Plain Jane of Brazilian Waxing venues. But I could make the case that’s what a Brazilian Wax is. Minimalism at its finest.
It was rather quiet and the waxer stayed in the room while I undressed. Good thing I didn’t have any epic amounts of lotion to wipe off. To keep with the sterile theme she wore both gloves & a mask & applied baby powder to me more than once. The room was a full small separate room, not partition. And it was just a stark white table.
To be matchy matchy full, not broken sticks were used. Paper, not fabric strips were used-we’re being simple here!
The simplicity moves towards zen as she moved my legs for me. I had no work to do on my own with the exception of knees to chest/jackknife for the tail.
And then the end was just as easy, cleanser applied after, 20 minutes in & out, & just a few stragglers left. It was $35 & I tipped her $10.
This wax was kind of like a short Bruce Springsteen song. Sort of satisfyingly yet anti climatic.
