Everyone who’s ever tried waxing knows the amount of pain you have to endure. But the results are worth it – that’s what you have to tell yourself.
One redditor recently got so sick of shaving their ‘intimate area’ every few days and having irritated skin that they decided to give waxing a try.
Unfortunately for xaxexixoxu, things didn’t go quite as expected even though she followed all the instructions on the tub to the letter.
So, of course, she posted her story of torment to the always funny Today I Fucked Up Reddit thread.
When she pulled the first strip it didn’t actually hurt as much as she expected:
Yeah, it stung, but not nearly as bad as I expected, and I was left with silky soft skin.
I laughed to myself, wondering why I hadn’t started doing this sooner. After applying and removing a few more strips, I felt like a pro.
But then things took a turn for the worse…
This is where my fuck-up occurred. On the next strip, I gripped it tightly and pulled. Only this time, my butterfingers got the best of me.
My hairy-waxpaper-less-fist came careening from the depths of my crotch and landed squarely on my face.
I squealed in pain and stumbled towards the mirror to see the damage.
But she wasn’t quite done just yet…
As I took a step, I slipped on some wax that had dripped onto the floor, landing bare-assed on the cold tile. I didn’t move for a moment, wallowing in my pain and shame.
I finally clambered to my feet and waddled to the mirror. My lower lip was bloody and swollen.
I rubbed my bruised ass and dejectedly sat down on the toilet lid and started applying more wax.
There’s no more depressing image than someone sitting naked and bloody-mouthed on a toilet with a bruised arse and half their pubes ripped out.
