When people ask me what I do for a living, I sometimes go directly for the throat on shock value and tell complete strangers, “I wax vagina all day.” I do love the look of surprise when I blurt out the word vagina. Most people aren’t that comfortable with it. I mean, even our over-sexualized media has a problem with the V word. Have you seen the episode of Bob’s Burgers where Linda joins a picket line? She chants “Boys are from Mars, Girls are from Venus, I got a yum-yum, You got a penis.”
Yeah – you can get away with penis but not vagina on public television.
I’m not going into the social/psychological/metaphysical/whatever-ical topics this can branch off into. There are plenty of people already focusing on all of that. I want to have a little more fun and play the “Let’s Name Our Vagina” game!
I’ve heard some pretty good ones in my career.
A client and her husband were sitting at a bar having a drink and she mentioned her upcoming appointment. He said he was starting to wonder when she was going to take care of her “angry orchard.”
Two weeks ago I had a new client who was quite shy even though she was used to getting a Brazilian wax. When I asked her why she was so nervous about getting undressed, she replied, “I don’t go around showing my fine china to just anyone.” I LOVED that one!
A long-time client came in after getting into a tanning bed for a tad too long. She said, “I don’t know if we’re going to be able to wax today. I burned my princess.” Just writing that still makes me laugh.
We’ve heard so many: kitty, hooha, wahoo, betty, witchie, vajayjay, chacha, vaj, vee, pink taco…
