STRIP Boyzilian experience

Strip Ministry of Waxing

To many, the concept of a “Brazilian wax” for men is unheard of. To most males, the process of removing body hair in the pubic area is an activity best reserved to women and male body builders.  Indeed, I never would have thought I would experience something like it myself. That is, until I received an invitation from STRIP to try out their signature Boyzilian.

Male genital waxing

First, a bit of a backgrounder: male genital waxing is thought to have become more popular in the 90s, though its practice remains a bit of a taboo until now. This is especially true in countries with conservative cultures like the Philippines. Male waxing is popular in the body building and male modeling community, and there are several types of wax used for hair removal.

Boyzillian at STRIP

At STRIP, the process of male genital waxing is performed by professionals who have undergone months of rigorous training. The “strippers” (as I call them) are all women, and they are very comfortable to work with. These strippers won’t be taking off their clothes for you, but you can be at peace knowing that your precious jewels are in good hands.

Boyzilian virgins might be taken by surprise by the hot wax that the salon uses. Worry not, the heat is quite tolerable. Next to laser hair removal, hot wax is probably the best method to remove hair “down there”. Compared to shaving and other methods of hair removal it is the more painful method, but the rewards are far greater. Waxing is a long-lasting method. Hair in waxed areas will not grow back for three to eight weeks; when the hair does grow back, it is soft and thin. Areas that are repeatedly waxed over long periods of time often exhibit a thinning of regrowth, and regrowth that is thinner, softer, and lighter in color.

No pain, no gain

My first Boyzillian was quite an experience. I tried my best to look tough in front of the lady attending to me. She was very professional and works fast. The pain, if any, lasts only a few seconds. I did hear screaming in the other room, so this really varies depending on one’s level of pain tolerance. As they say, no pain no gain.

I walked out of the STRIP a free man. The feeling is very cool and refreshing. It actually reminds me of my pre-puberty days when everything was smooth down there. STRIP describes the process as getting an “upsize” – with nothing to obscure the view, it does appear larger indeed.

Given the choice, I would be happy to receive a Boyzilian as often as possible.
