The monthly period is certainly not the most pleasant time of the month for us women. Apart from the aches and pains and not to mention the associated grumpiness, the menstrual period is often annoying and always inconvenient.

Beauty is Pain, unfortunately!

The development of new ‘pubic hair styles’ makes it possible for women, and men, to wear tight fitted undergarments without the concern of pubic hair showing. These styles are particularly popular amongst swimmers and athletes, but many women choose intimate waxing to boost their sexuality with their partner, going hand in hand with their personal self-esteem and of course to fulfill personal needs.
