Bringing Sexy Back: Waxed

Tired from tending to baby, lots of new moms let themselves go. So why not surprise your husband when he least expects it by tidying up? Beyond shaving those legs that have been hard to reach for a while, make an appointment to get a designer wax.

Everything from the basic bikini to Brazilian and lightning bolts are offered. Perhaps a fun shape — heart, star, tiara, or even his initials is what you need to spice things up between the sheets. And if you want more than his stunned eyes to sparkle, get the waxer to adhere some Swarovski crystals.

I think waxing is a great idea.

"And about the high price point items we feature, we do try to balance it out with lower end items, too. Hence, the Simple Swank posts." Yes, but those only happen once a week at most. My point was that most items in between are the high-end without other options listed.

I don't have children, but I've always been shaved and waxed. My legs, underarms, and ummmm, my nether region are maintained. I do this for me. It's part of my grooming habits like combing my hair and manicuring my eyebrows. Like poster #1, I've done for several years. I don't intend to change this habit.

Oh, and my husband finds me sexy even when I don't shave (legs, pits, bikini line).... He would probably laugh his butt off if I came home with a tiara complete w/jewels....

I have been waxed once...she took off several layers of skin and I was in severe agony for almost a week afterwards. Yeah, hubby didn't get any for a while. To me having my nether regions shaved or waxed into a specific style is not what makes me attitude about myself makes me sexy.

Controversy isn't necessarily a bad thing. At least it has people talking about an issue that can be difficult for new moms. Everyone's different about when they're ready to be sexy again and that's okay!! If people are so offended by the "Bringing Sexy Back" posts, they should just skip over them and read the other posts. Nothing about any of the Sugar sites says "You must agree with us on everything we post." I mean, how freaking boring would that be? We'd be a bunch of pop-a-trons instead of the vibrant, diverse (mostly) female community we are!

Lilsugar, I loved the post. It's good to know what's out there and what other women are doing. I, personally am not going to do the crystal thing but it makes me realize that I can get a little more frisky without feeling cheap and tawdry. And about the high price point items we feature, we do try to balance it out with lower end items, too. Hence, the Simple Swank posts. We will try to do a better job featuring more options for you all. And, hope you will continue to read the Bringing Sexy Back posts. There were two that were not nearly as controversial and hope they were insightful for you all. I hope you all enjoy the weekend!

PEOPLE NEED TO STOP ARGUING!!! And it's always caused by "Bringing Sexy Back." Stop the hate!

Heh. I'm single and a Mommie to a nearly 2-year-old. But I wasn't ready for sex until 6 1/2 months post-partum. I think we all have to be respectful of what we want for ourselves and acknowledge that it's different for everybody. 'Nuff said.

I didn't read this post as "go out and get shapes and crystals in your pubes!". I read it as "to pamper yourself and feel sexy, treat yourself to a professional wax". And hey, while you're there you could even get wild stuff! As for the "why does the woman have to be sexy one" question, I think that's pretty obvious. Most husbands are just happy to get a little attention when there's a newborn in the house. But, a lot of women feel frumpy and stripped of their femininity and sex appeal when baby is young. I think its great that this site offers suggestions to women to get themselves over that very common complaint.

Plasticapple- I agree. I know that most Sugar readers are women, but still. When you have to make an appointment to go get crystals put on your parts- seriously? Between 2 a.m. feedings and laundry and nursing and never getting a shower or a moment to yourself- sex can be the last thing on your mind, and getting hair ripped out of your body so you can be more attractive to your husband- that's just another thing to do on a to-do list that's long enough already. I think you have to have some time to get yourself together if you're going to bring back the sexy side of yourself. A nap, a long bath, a bottle of wine, and above all, a considerate husband who doesn't expect topiary pubic hair or labia crystals. One of the things my husband did for me was to buy me a gorgeous set of silky pajamas- completely appropriate for lounging around in all day (which I did quite bit), but a definite step up from sweatpants. (Of course, I know some people may be into the whole waxed tiara thing, and that's perfectly cool- whatever floats your boat. Personally I think the entire idea of waxing sounds masochistic!)

Personally I want some decals on my vajayjay. Maybe some flames. Yeah, a race car vajayjay, that's what I want!

I don't want crystals on my hooha... I REALLY don't want them on my husbands either ;-) Maybe there could be a "bringing sexy back" post that could be for the men?

I'm all for getting back in the saddle after a baby. It is an important part of your relationship. BUT...why is it always up to the woman to be the sexy one? That's what upsets me. And Swarovski crystals on your hooha? C'mon!

Being older I have seen so many friends go down some paths that could have been avoided. I often refer to giving birth is like having a little nuclear explosion going off in your panties. While those first few sex attempts were anything but sexy for me or my husband- I think they were important for us. Important for him as all the attention was on the baby and me. He was really left out. Important for me as I went from wife and lover to life making pod. I felt gross, I looked gross and with the nursing my body wasn't mine any longer. I felt that I needed to reclaim a little bit of me. While it was scary at first it got better. Maybe the bringing sexy back posts would be better taken if they didn't always involve intercourse suggestions?

I'm not outraged by the bringing sexy back posts, I just like to acknowledge that it's not a priority (or even an option) for all women. I don't care that it's posted. But I don't think I should have to ignore it, either. Posting about how uncomfortable something like that would make me might make another poster feel better about their own lack of desire. Or might not. So far as I can see, there's not "many" people outraged at it. It's spurned a wonderful discussion on how to balance things out, in my opinion.

Funny that we're all outraged at some of the prices of things featured on here, I think it's a sign that we're all moms. I think when you have children you become more frugal and practical. Which is a good thing.

I am always so shocked to see how many people are against the bringing sexy back posts. While extra fancy pubes are not for me I think the point of these posts is to remind some people to not forget their significant others. It's really easy to get wrapped up in all the stressful parts of mommy hood.

Oh I completely think that "fantasy" items are fun and should be included. I think that's the point of the suggestions given - more balance. Almost everything recommended is given as the much more expensive item, rather than balancing fantasy with reality and the average mom.

I don't have a child yet, so no comment from me on the waxing or the postpartum sex. I'll just be happy when I can actually see "down there" again. Heh. But, personally, I like reading about some of the "fantasy" items that romaniagirl mentions, just because it opens my eyes to other possibilities aside from the typical products you find at BRU or other big box stores. I've been pretty practical with my buying, but it's always fun to have a fantasy wishlist of more extravagant or special items you would love as a nice gift or special treat. IMO, for me, there is nothing wrong with reading about them or expanding my knowledge base. Of course, maybe that is just my naivety speaking. That being said, I also agree that some of the items are far from practical for most of us and more regular items maybe should be highlighted as well. I guess I just like reading about unique items, whether they are totally affordable or a little more luxurious.
Greggie Greggie 9 years
I agree, Moto. Certain items I expect to see just the one - the bottle one from yesterday comes to mind. It may be too expensive for my taste, but it's a unique bottle that isn't available in general. But things like the cupcake holder and the shampoo rinser - only one option, which was on the higher end of the range, was given. No other options. I always feel like I'm being argumentative if I point out that it's available elsewhere, but on the other hand I like people to know that they don't have to spend $30, they can spend $10 and get the same item for a comparable quality.

Another member and I have talked extensively about some of the astronomical suggestions and both agree that we'd like to see things that are a bit more attainable/useful. One post that comes to mind was the Simple/Swank diaper bag blog. Even the "simple" diaper bag suggestion was many, many times what I spent on my daily bag - which I've used without issue for nearly a year. While it's great to see interesting and unique products, I think many people (not *everyone* ;)) would like to see things in different and more acceptable price brackets...and unique and interesting items don't have to cost an arm and a leg.

Why is it the sex topics that bring out such opinions and exchange? We all must be too polite when it comes to $1000 strollers. :rotfl:
