So does it hurt only while it's being done? I would hate to be in pain for TOO long.
The area feels sore for a day or so afterwards, but nothing major, and that's usually only after the first time.

Ok, I'm trying to figure out a way to make that sound less sexual and I can't think of anything.

I've paid anywhere between $75-100, and always give a 20% tip.

For those who wax, how often do you get them? Doesn't it hurt when it's growing back?

My gal rec'd every 4-6 weeks. I wasn't itchy or uncomfortable when the hair grew back in.

I've heard of something called, "No Scream Cream."

It is supposed to work well, though I've never had any part of my body waxed. (Too low of a pain threshhold!)

Well it's more than one thing. There are a few different types of waxes, hard wax being one because it doesn't involve strips, and it only pulls away the hair, no skin, so it's less painful for you! Also if you have sensitive skin, you may only be able to use certain waxes.

Mind you, I learned alllll of this today lol. I had a bunch of time to kill at work.

My neighbor does this for a living. And then talks about it loudly with her friends during her backyard drink-and-yell-athons.

I hear the strangest stories sometimes, floating in through my windows.

She's obnoxious.

I'm not a wise waxing guru but I say at least a 20% tip is in order for someone ripping the hair off your lady bits.
