So apparently the state of New Jersey was going to ban “Brazilian” bikini waxes after two women were hospitalized because of infections after the procedure. But the bill was pulled. In my brief on-line searching on this I found two great lines. One from a fellow academic blogger, “Mammals have hair. Get used to it.” and another from an article on the dangers on the procedure (in an academic journal). To quote yet another fellow academic blogger, “This paper provides the best line I’ve ever seen in a science journal: ‘In addition, pubic hair can be styled into various designs and can be dyed.'” You can see the article here.
