Intimate waxing is gaining popularity among males gay and straight salons. It wasn’t the first thing most people noticed when they saw the posters of David Beckham modelling a new range of designer underpants. But once they had finished inspecting the xylophone stomach muscles, cooed at the snug fit of his briefs and imagined themselves as the object of his come-hither look, their eyes were drawn to the footballer’s upper and inner thighs. They looked awfully smooth. Had he ... he hadn’t, had he? ... done his bikini line?
All over the country more and more men (gay and straight alike) are marching into beauty salons and demanding a “Boyzilian”, or as one Yorkshire-based salon bills it, “the Full Monty”. In other words, the complete or near-complete removal of hair in intimate areas using wax. If you have £120 to spare, you can even get it done in Harrods, in the Refinery spa.
Business is booming. “A year ago I was doing three men a week. Now I am doing three men a day,” she said. “I don’t know why it has suddenly become more popular, but when people come in they do mention David Beckham. Now that celebrities like him are open about waxing, it makes other men feel more comfortable about it.”
And people say celebrities don’t use their fame for good things. Ha! Becks has shown them!
