UK Man Hurt by Brazilian Wax

When Manscaping Goes South

Now here's one instance of guy grooming we really and truly hope doesn't get repeated: a 24-year-old British guy recently almost lost one of his, ahem, surfboard fins when the Brazilian wax he was getting went horribly awry.

Joe Cooper, who seems like an extremely affable young man, had volunteered to get his manly parts waxed in order to raise money for his local hospital, but wound up there himself when he made the mistake of letting the highest bidder pull off one of the wax strips. The overenthusiastic (and obviously totally new to waxing) bidder managed to remove six layers of poor Joe's skin, although luckily he's recovering nicely. We've definitely had bad waxing experiences before where skin got removed instead of hair, but nothing as horrendous as this. Would you ever encourage a guy to wax his area? And do you think that, as manscaping gains in popularity, we'll hear about more incidents like this?
