I've been around a bit. I've never met a woman that waxed. My wife and I caught an episode of Pen and Teller's Bull$hit on HBO where they demo's a Brazilan wax rather explictedly. Not a chance that happens anywhere near my wife.
I'll stick to Ian's method, we both leave happy and live happy.
Believe it or not, salt water works very well! We cruised 2 years and my legs were never softer. I use a quality razor (venus, blades are available in large quantity at Costco) and usually hair conditioner because its easier.
WHITEHORSE, Yukon Territory (Wireless Flash) – The sight of a woman with hairy legs usually grosses people out, but at one festival in Canada, it will earn the ape-like woman a prize. The 45th Annual Yukon Sourdough Rendezvous in Whitehorse will begin Wednesday (Feb. 24) and one of the biggest events is the “Women’s Hairy Leg Contest.”
In the contest, the hairy-limbed ladies compete in three different categories that consist of “the densest hair,” “the longest hair” and “the most horrific hair.”
The winner in each category is determined by a barber in the small town and receives a gold plated razor.
Festival spokesman Harold Sher expects more than 15 girls to compete and admits it’s one of the more popular spectator events at the festival, which also includes the “Beard Growing Contest” and the “Flour Packing Contest.”
More than 20,000 people are expected to flock to the three-day festival – which celebrates the loads of people who traveled through the area during the Gold Rush
