Just When You Thought the Bush Era Was Over: New Jersey Mulls Brazilian Waxing Ban

This is an example of government regulation run amok:gardenstate

The state Board of Cosmetology and Hairstyling is moving toward a ban on genital waxing altogether after two women reported being injured in their quest for a smooth bikini line.

Both women were hospitalized for infections following so-called “Brazilian” bikini waxes; one of the women has filed a lawsuit, according to Jeff Lamm, a spokesman for New Jersey’s Division of Consumer Affairs, which oversees the cosmetology board.

Oh, New Jersey, why must you make it so easy?

What I really love about this story are the constant references to “the bikini area.”  I’m gonna use that in daily life.  “You’re a real pain in my bikini area!”

One thing is for sure, if New Jersey does enact this ban, it won’t be a smooth transition.

A lot of us will be waxing nostalgic at the beach this year.

Compliance is sure to be patchy.

OK, your turn.



  1. Tommy, as you are a resident of the Pine Barrens, I urge all to defer to your expertise in this area.

    Apparently, the region is home to CARNIVOROUS PLANTS!

    “The name “pine barrens” refers to the area’s sandy, acidic, nutrient-poor soil, to which the crops originally imported by European settlers didn’t take well. However, these uncommon conditions enable the Pine Barrens to support a unique and diverse spectrum of plant life, including orchids and carnivorous plants.”


  2. Geez! Thankfully, I live in California where deforestation is allowed.

  3. PCL, did you see also that one episode of Californication, with the deforestation joke (Marcy waxed porn stars on all fours)? LOL. That was interesting info, Bob. Why am I humming that Hall & Oates song “Maneater” right now, though?

  4. A lot of us will be waxing nostalgic at the beach this year.
    Well, I’ll be the first one to cross the border if this happens.

  5. LMAO! Diana, I love Californication. That show really illustrates just how LA operates–I never miss it. Too bad Duchovny got a little too much into ‘character’ with it. (lol)

  6. […] I’m not sure how common that expression is.  I had a girlfriend who used it a lot, as in “Your cologne is a real panty-dropper!”  Anyway, something made somebody drop her panties in front of the White House today. Maybe it was a protest against Jersey’s waxing ban. […]

  7. I’m gonna use that in daily life. “You’re a real pain in my bikini area!”

    ROFLMAO! 😀

  8. I’m going to steal this:“If you ate pasta and antipasta, would you still be hungry?” Made me spit my drink.

  9. Sweet. 😉
