Right Girls - what is this 'waxing pain' nonsense?. I was warned that it was going to hurt like hell. My friends were telling me to take painkillers prior to the appointment and then go straight for a stiff drink!!! I was a bit worried - I don't mind admitting. They're wimps because it didn't hurt a bit. I just laughed - a lot - because it was really ticklish :) I must be braver / harder than I thought.
