Who on earth was sitting around one day and thought, "I think I'll put hot wax on myself and see if it rips out my hair when I pull it back off with strips of paper..." ???
I'm thinking it was a man.
Except that I'm not sure they can handle the pain.
Anyways, won't be shaving my legs for a few weeks... this may be more than you care to know, but I just thought I'd throw it out there for anyone who is curious: yes, it does hurt. But no, it's not that bad.
