Woman Waxed

"Meet Sophia Pinto: the 21st century's standard-issue, all-American perfect 10. The 5-foot-5 Minnesota native — a sly, funny, 22-year-old natural blonde who spends every summer bikini-clad on the shores of Lake Minnetonka — works out five days a week. Her slim waist and megawatt smile hearken back to the polyvinyl glamour of the original Barbie doll. In fact, if Mattel were to redesign Barbie based on the new millennium's ideal woman, she would likely resemble Pinto. Healthy, athletic, alluring, and smart (Pinto will graduate early this month from Northwestern University), she's both a role model and a sex symbol. And if you were to undress Pinto, you'd find she embodies yet another trademark characteristic of the plastic glamour girl-turned-careerwoman: Like Barbie, Pinto has no pubic hair."
—And that's JUST THE BEGINNING.

I don't know why this isn't a "And that's when I clicked Close Tab," but I really don't need to read any handwringing remembrances of pubes past in The Atlantic.

Anybody know a place in NYC that does male waxing that doesn't have horror stories attached to it? Some of us are just getting older and hairier….

@mikemariano Seriously, reading "pubic hair" in the Atlantic is like hearing your grandparents say it. Bourgeois magazines shouldn't know anything about anybody's pubic hair. Except maybe Chan Marshall.

Reason #478 to be glad to be married: I will never have a moment where I encounter a lady's waxed lady-parts and have to pretend to not be somewhat skeeved out.

Save the endangered beaver!

So much for the "sly, furry 22-year-olds" of yesteryear.

"Gone were the warm, velvety vaginas of yesteryear"

SHOOT.

Slightly off topic, but really The Atlantic? Meet Sophia Pinto — this amazingly beautiful stand-in for all womankind … and we somehow don't have a photo of her. You've been using the web pretty well, so I assume you realize it's not the 19th century.

@Setec Astrology If The Atlantic had printed THAT picture it would've been even more annoying than none at all.

"An esthetician pours wax heated to 140° F (roughly the temperature of a steak fresh off the grill)…"
And here's where Balk stepped out for lunch.

A bald vag on a woman is even more creepy than holes in a crumpet (there's a joke in there somewhere)

Having been raised (or something) on 70s porn I like them ol' bushy triangles.

If you are a naughty bachelor who sometimes resorts to watching naughty clips on RedTube or somewhere of the sort — it can be convenient to have an active hatred for the ones featuring women who have shaved/waxed their nether regions completely? That way, you are spared the problem of wasting too much time on the activity: you only need to consider 5% of what's available.

If I ever(?!) find myself with a woman and discover she has taken to such self-mutilation, I will be sure to kindly ask her to grow some back –

Deal breaker! So are tattoos…

Naughtily yours,

So I guess this story was written because there were some weird expense account items to justify.
