Which Body Part Should I Get Waxed?

There are some benefits to being hairier than others.

First off, winter nights don’t seem so cold because hair is wonderful insulation and I can somewhat understand why the Olsen Twins use actual animal fur to cover their meatless, Cryptkeeper-like bodies.

Secondly, having ample hair follicles means having a large field available for harvest if there is ever a need for hair transplants. Sure, some of them might be coarse or pubic-ish, but that’s what smelly, harsh hair-straightening chemicals are for.

Thirdly, if you’re a dude, you can open a few shirt buttons and play Magnum, P.I. whenever you want, if you have access to a Ferrari 308 GTS and can get Higgins, T.C. and Rick to play with you, which shouldn’t be hard, since they’re probably not doing anything anyway.

If you’re a long time reader of The Impulsive Buy or have seen me naked, you know that I am somewhat hirsute. For you newer readers, to give you an idea of how hairy I am, here are some posts that show some evidence that I may possibly be a descendant of the Yeti in the Disneyland Matterhorn ride. In the Veet Rasera review I showed off my legs, during the the first anniversary prize drawing post I gave readers a glimpse of my arms, and in the Axe Dry Clix review I scared off TIB readers by showing them my armpit.

So with a little convincing from TIB reader Cian, I decided to review the experience of getting some of my hair ripped out of their follicles via waxing, and you will help choose which body part of mine will feel that pain. I’m going to give you five options and you can vote on which one you like best or the one that will cause me the most pain.

Here are the five body parts you can vote for:

1. Underarms
2. Arms
3. Legs
4. Chest
5. Eyebrows (just sculpting)

(Extreme Editor’s Note: Getting a Manzilian IS NOT an option.)

The body part with the most votes will be declared the winner and I will get that part of my body waxed by a trained professional and then review the experience. Yes, in the review, there will be pictures of the procedure and just like a Rambo IV preview, if there is blood, I will show it to you.

To vote, either leave a comment with this post that contains the body part you want me to get waxed or email me at theimpulsivebuy AT gmail DOT com with your choice in the subject line. Only one choice and vote per person.

Iรขโ‚ฌโ„ขll be accepting votes until Friday, January 11th (11:59 p.m. Hawaii Standard Time).

Now go vote like you’re helping to create one of the gazillion lists out there for the best and worst of 2007.

  1. Chest.

    I was going to vote for the manzillian because you said you’d show pics. Is that wrong?

  2. Moobs, please. OK, OK, so you don’t have moobs but it’s a fun, descriptive word.

    No one wants to lay in a man’s chest and inhale chest hair. Chest hair in the nose= bad.

    Although armpits, oh shit. Those fucking hurt. I waxed my husband’s ass once. He said never again. Have fun with that!

  3. I just had my brows done today and the girl who does them said the chest would hurt the most. She’s never waxed a man’s armpits, because what man would do that? I like hair on a man’s chest, so I vote armpits. Spray with Axe immediately after and let the party begin!

  4. Over 50 responses and no one suggested your BACK?! Unbelievable! I think that one will make the most difference if you’re trying to attract the ladies.

    If not your back, then I vote for your eyebrows because I have your best interests in mind. It will be the least painful.

  5. “Getting a Manzilian IS NOT an option.”

    ^^there goes my vote. Back, sack & crack.

    Seriously? Don’t manscape.

  6. I don’t understand why the manzilian is off the table. The warm wax throughout the genital region is quite enjoyable; and the level of sensitivity after is GREAT! Won’t you please re-consider the manzilian? PLEASE? And by the way, I love that you are doing this…

  7. marvo your hair arms and legs are damn sexy! my first choice is a manzillan wax!!!like cian said above please reconsider. buuuuutt if i had to settle i would go with the chest.

  8. I’ll say it! I’m Brazilian, and I’m very disappointed you are not even considering shaving down there. Well, then, I vote for CHEST. It will be more painful anyway…

  9. Legs! If I can go at myself down there with an Epilady in the 80s and survive, then so can you.

    This is so going to be a Hostel 1 AND 2 experience for you. There will be blood.

  10. I’m gonna vote for arms. I can tell they’re not going to win, but I’m voting for them anyway. :-p

  11. I say chest!

    Finally, I get to vote on something! I just found this blog several weeks ago and missed out on all the other opportunities. ๐Ÿ™

  12. I go for eyebrows. But you should pick out an image of manly eyebrows you like and take it to a real salon- NOT one of those places in the mall that also give you “manis and pedis.” That way you won’t run the risk of looking too wacked out. And getting your eyebrows done is quite painful.

  13. underarms for sure.
    being the internets and your usual witty commentary I go for the most painful one.
    I want to live vicariously through your pain ๐Ÿ˜‰

  14. Chest! Mostly because pictures of your bloody, chapped chest will allow me to complete my mental picture of you. Watch out for the nipples…

  15. I’m picturing scenes from 40-Year Old Virgin and you MUST do the chest! I think that there should be some still pictures and maybe a video so we can hear if you scream. Yeah…I might be a little sick in the head.

  16. After careful review of the aforementioned blog posts where you daringly gave us a glimps of your arms and legs, (which are right nice I might add) I’m going to vote for the chest, in order to puzzle together the complete image of Marvo. Second choice would be eyebrows, just so you can feel a woman’s pain then be able to empathize.
    and uh…good luck with that.

  17. Marvo,

    It has been a long time since I provided a reply but I had to comment on this post. Since you won’t do the manzilian (which all women prefer than some pubes stuck in the teeth), I vote for the eyebrows. As a side note if you keep the lower regions trimmed closely, women are appreciative. Come to think of it, that goes for chest and arm pit hair.


  18. Eyebrows for sure — everybody can use a little shaping, and you won’t completely torture yourself in the process.

  19. Since I am collecting pictures of all your body parts for my stalk…. er, … I mean Fan wall, I will have to vote for the CHEST.
    I have all the previous pics laminated and put onto the chalk outline on the wall, alongside the fascinating and lovely microwave dance video that plays repeatedly in its digital frame.
    xoxoxoxo… bikerbabeee

  20. It’s not on the list but I am voting for BACK nothing is grosser then back hair….. ugh having bad ex flashbacks…

  21. I vote for number #7 – your back!! Funny it wasn’t on the list. Ofcourse, chest would be my second, and probably way more painful, pick.

  22. Underarms, because it hurts almost as bad as bikini waxing…and you SUCK for not giving us the option to vote for bikiki area…..

  23. well well, I’ve waxed my ubderarms before and it bled to no ends so I’m gonna be mercifull and vote for the Chest area

  24. armpits… that way your deodorant won’t clump up so much

    i think a marvo’s back wasn’t an option cause he already waxed
    it or Marvo has no back hair…..

  25. HM… was so grossed out by the possibility of back hair I didn’t stop to think he may not have any.

    Since Pastora gave me some food for thought I am going to say Chest- that why you can always re-enact the famous scene from “The 40 Year Old Virgin”
