How Brazilian Wax Saved My Marriage!

My husband and I have been married for over 6 years now and are blessed with a son.

I got married as a teenager without a mother. My mum died when I was 8 years old and so it’s safe to say I didn’t quite have the basic girl training most girl children need and go through. We were raised solely by our father. As a result, it was sometimes a challenge to keep the spice in my marriage and sex life.

I’ve always been a “natural” sort of woman. This helped form the assumption I had that men who wanted their partners to wax their pubic area were closet pedophiles. Pubic hair, I reasoned, was what made a woman a woman. Why get rid of it? I now have my answers which I would share at the end of my story.

So, in addition to my one-sided, mom-deprived mentality, I hated shaving. I thoroughly hated those pesky razor bumps and shaving cream reactions. To unhelp matters, I am a very hairy person. I am so hairy that if I do not wax my eyebrows, they’d grow together. My pubic hair was no exception. It was excessive and even when I decided to shave, my pubic hair would sprout out again within a couple of days. I thus chose the preferable option of letting it grow out with occasional trims.


My husband wasn’t very happy about this arrangement. Unlike me, he hated pubic hair. He loved me very much, undoubtedly, but he also had a big issue with the fact that I was the “natural” kind of woman. We didn’t date for a long time so the differences just began to stare us in the face. My husband is a romantic person and would always try to persuade me into buying lace panties, wearing push up bras, and other such sexual things. He loved making love to me with lights on but my bushy pubic area always turned him off.

My marriage soon started to get rocky and my husband’s decreasing appetite for me, soon waned thin. His sex drive reduced to a zero. He did not find me attractive anymore, and I knew it was only a matter of time before he started cheating on me.

I immediately started looking for a lasting solution. I remembered my best friend would usually get a Brazilian wax at the Apples and Oranges Spa and Salon in Lagos where we live, and so I asked her about it. She acknowledged that they offer great spa services and thankfully, she convinced me to try it out.

Before all of this, I had never gotten a wax job of any sort before, much less one where I would have ‘everything’ removed from down there. I however didn’t think much of the entire process when I was scheduling the appointment. I just wanted to surprise my husband with a Brazilian wax for our upcoming 7th year wedding anniversary.

My sole plan was to win my husband back and spice up my marriage again. However, as the appointment day approached, I grew cold feet. The therapist at Apples and Oranges spa, realised it was my first time of getting a wax procedure and gently proceeded to explain the entire process to me. She started by trimming the hair back a bit, I guess I had quite a forest growing down there. She would occasionally press her hand against my pubic bone at intervals to alleviate the pain, I presume. After removing all the hair, she applied some sort of soothing salve. It had a name. At the end of it all, I went home, undressed and looked in the mirror. For the first time in my marital adult life, I actually liked what I saw.

Sometimes now, I feel a bit guilty in my newfound awe of my nearly hairless front side, but the experience was totally worth it. I realised that being completely bare made me feel surprisingly sexy. I had earlier scheduled a late night dinner and weekend getaway in a nice hotel for my anniversary and I had went lingerie shopping earlier in the day. I got ready for my date, wore my sexy underwear and dress and felt really exquisite. Thank goodness, I was still in good shape. The arrangement was for my husband to meet me at the hotel after work, as I’d already packed his overnight bag to the hotel.

The dinner went very well and we retired to the hotel room afterwards. As usual, he was not interested in making love and so I initiated the first move. Soon as I undressed and got naked, my husband was so surprised and pleased. It was no surprised then that we had the best weekend ever, since our wedding day. I loved it. It was beautiful. He was just as smitten throughout the weekend. We had a long talk about the new change and I promised things were going to remain that way.

Did it resurrect my love life? Definitely. We now not only have “lights on sex” and “eyes open sex”, our oral sex life is now overly amazing. Where I used to give alone, now… Let’s just say, it’s funny how I never knew what was missing in my marriage until now.

I’m happiest to report that my new and improved front side has much more sensation than I thought existed. The mere touch of my husband fingertips against my now bare skin is enough to make me shudder. I feel more inviting, more beautiful, and definitely worthier.

People spend their money on things that make them happy. I personally happen to enjoy shedding a few nairas on a treatment that brings just a little discomfort: waxing. Yes, I’ve begun to like it now. It’s been 6 months since I started my waxing journey, and I can’t imagine ever doing anything else. I especially love the great treatment I get from Apples and Oranges and I am really thankful for my new way of life. I can sincerely say that it is one of the top spas in Lagos with excellent spa services.
