I love love love that these mannequins have nipples and pubic hair showing in the underwear. I find it exhilarating that American Apparel love to push societal boundaries so. I really do. It makes my heart sing.
Lately I’ve been re-growing my pit hair too. It’s not at this stage yet…
But then I figure what if it does get to that stage? Then who cares?
Well no, I still do care. I’m more comfortable than I was about it last year. In so much as my friends and family are now used to seeing some fuzz under my arms and not tell me to go shave. Well, that’s more family telling me to go shave that is, my friends just don’t give a flying toss about what’s growing where. Unless it’s some weird growth on my face or something…
The moral of this story? The fact that I’m so so so glad that it seems hair is making a come back. There’s such pressure to make sure we fit the “feminine” stereotype that when I see things like this my inner feminist roars her approval.
Even if it means that I’m still to mortified to lift my arms in a public setting if I have a strapless shirt or dress on and knowing me I’ll wax it before I head overseas. Because ultimately, it’s my choice and one I’m happy to make.
I’m de-sensitising myself to hair. Is it working? I think so. Except I keep shaving it off before it turns into ape-ville like the lasses up there. I get natural, but honey, house keep that shit.
I’m not sure I can easily give up on my brazilian though. If only because I hate hair down there. I really do.
And while we are talking about down there, I thought I would update on my new years resolution.
I’m now at week 2 after my lapse. We have an uneasy truce going on, my vagina and I.
It flares up every night when I go to bed, that urge, the itch to just rub a quick one out. But my will power at the moment is stronger.
I’m not sure how much longer it will be stronger for, however I figure I’ll be flying overseas in 3 weeks. 3 more weeks should just about do it.
I’ll prove to myself that I don’t have a masturbation problem and that it is just something to do when I’m bored, horny or just as the mood strikes.
When that statistic is compared with other surveys, what you find is more people masturbating in the workplace than those who fall asleep (29 per cent), steal office stationery (25 per cent), and arrive late once a week (16 per cent).
Maybe I’m not the only one with a trigger happy vagina?!
