Trim Your Bush, Dammit!

OK, I’m sure by now you’ve seen this commercial. Last night while watching Project Runway (hey, don’t judge), I saw it no less than three times. I can just imagine someone coming into the weekly board meeting saying, “Hey, I have an idea, let’s take the oldest and most overused metaphor for women’s pubic hair and use it to promote our product”.

Now, I’ll admit, I’m a shaver. I don’t like hair on myself, but that’s a matter of personal preference. I DON’T want to be marketed to in such a way that implies that if I did have pubic hair that it would need to be manicured like shrubbery. I don’t need a special fancy schmancy razor to cut my pubic hair into hearts and flowers and fairy princess crowns, thank you!

I don’t get why they didn’t go with the simple approach of saying, “hey, we have a bikini razor so that if you do choose to shave, you can use something that might give you less irritation,” instead of pissing a bunch of us off.

Thanks, Schick, for reducing our bodies to landscaping projects.

I’m a Slacker

I’ll admit it.  I’ve been a slacker when it comes to updating this blog recently.  Too often my evenings have been filled with HGTV marathons, delicious vegan cooking, and settling into my new home with my partner.

To top it all off, I have the added distractions of Top Chef and Project Runway, too.  And to think before I moved my TV wasn’t even plugged into the wall.  Oh well.

I will be better from now on, dear followers.  Expect some new sex-related goodness in the very near future.  Keep your eyes peeled: it’s coming.
