The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    I hate this trend. Shaving? Waxing? Ugh! I just think a man who is bare (or near) down there looks... I don't know... 10. I can see the appeal to keeping hair trimmed (less sweaty, easier to clean, makes mr happy look bigger) but actual shaven or waxed? Is that supposed to be sexy?

    In the same way that shaved female parts look sexy to some, juvenile to others.

    I don't see the same reasoning. Genitalia are what trigger an erotic response upon viewing... a woman shaving emphasizes and perhaps even reveals hers. A man doesn't need to shave to do this... he's standing proud and free clear and away from the hair, even at rest.

    Except some guys are repulsed by hairlessness. This isn't a question of need but of preference, and that depends on a variety of factors, not least of which is social conditioning.

    i've gotten a full male brazilian probably close to 10 times. one time i was a demo boy for it in front of 21 women i've never met before (best comedic anecdote i have - details the most humiliating day of my life). it hurts, but not too terribly, especially when you take a perk beforehand.

    they use strip wax everywhere except your scrotum, and for that they used hard brazilian wax. this type of wax adheres only to the hair follicles and not the skin, so it minimizes the pain. still though, i maintain that the most painful part of your body to get waxed is on your traps near your neck ... owwww

    Sounds like a pr0n plot.

    Perk... percocet?

    they use strip wax everywhere except your scrotum, and for that they used hard brazilian wax. this type of wax adheres only to the hair follicles and not the skin, so it minimizes the pain.
    Hmmm... in a strange way I'm almost tempted to give it a go just once to say that I'd done it. I'm an experiment junkie.

    still though, i maintain that the most painful part of your body to get waxed is on your traps near your neck ... owwww
    Really? I've never had anything waxed so I have no frame of reference. I will be devirginized with an eyebrow wax sometime in the near future...

    mike: yes, definitely does sound like an awesome beginning to a porn - BUT you have to keep in mind that as you are getting the hairs ripped unlovingly out of your genitalia, you are in no way "at your best", if you follow. and yes, percocet, helps keep the wincing to a minimum. i would say to go for it ... for my demo they did the full male brazilian, then put me on all fours and took care of my bottom. i should also mention, that their method for removing any remnants of wax is to cover their hands in oil and rub the oil over everywhere that has just been waxed. no, i am not joking.

    Narc, you're a pimp.

    My personal opinion on this matter is clippers, #1 down to the shaft and then razor and the base of the shaft and razor the sac. Keeps it clean and orderly. Girls don't want pick hairs out of their teeth, you know?

    Was this some sort of "cheated wives club" or something?!
    I'm not moaning, i'm having an opinion.

    Don't forget a #3 all around the shaft/sac.

    haha, no (but i should mention that i know my fair share of cheating wives ). this woman i used to date worked as an aesthetician at a spa, and asked me to step in as their demo boy for a training for all the aestheticians from their 4 spas ... so we did some bartering and i agreed

    I buzz with a number 1 all around, and use scissors to trim the bouncing boys.


    On a related note...how the HELL do you razor the sizzack?! I wouldn't mind trying it once so long as I'm certain of what I'm doing. Any tips/tricks?
