Celebrity Brazilian Waxes

Why Are So Many Women Showing Off Their Privates?

Some people are taking the overshare to the next level. Ice-T's wife Coco decided to tweet her Brazilian (Twitpic removed the picture, but if you must, the NSFW nakedness is here). Last week, Kathy Griffin had a pap smear done live poolside—for a good cause, but still. And vajazzling videos galore are popping up on YouTube. (Thanks, Jennifer Love Hewitt.) It's not just celebrities who seem to be eager to make their ladybits subject to public scrutiny, though. There's a lot going on here, so to see more about it, just keep reading.


The bikini line industry has been growing by leaps and bounds over the last few years. There's an increasing number of bizarre and cringe-inducing products out there designed to make your area more "fun" and attention-grabbing. Never before have so many women wanted to show their private parts to strangers. I'm definitely for vulva pride, but it's a little odd that most of the crotches we see are uniformly bare or sparkly ones. Having fun with your hair — all your hair — is to be encouraged, but I'm not convinced that's what's actually happening. Instead, it seems like the obsession with "perfecting" the area just reduces us to one part instead of celebrating our beauty as whole people. What do you think? Do you want to see more diversity in Down Unders all over, or would you just prefer to see less of them in general?
