STRIP Boyzilian experience
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.

STRIP Boyzilian Campaign
STRIP launched the Boyzilian Campaign in a bid to educate men on the importance of waxing, at the same time de-fuzzing the myth that male waxing is only for Nancy Pansies. The truth is, a Boyzilian doesn’t only keep you feeling clean and fresh (especially in our humid weather), it also reduces the chances for nasty odors to fester in all that trapped perspiration. What’s even more enticing is that the deforestation of your nether regions causes a natural phenomenon that visually “magnifies” your bits and bobs!
Yes, you heard that right! A Boyzilian strips the unruly hair from your pubic, sack and crack regions, which in turn, leave an unobstructed view of your manhood. Our Striperellas are well-honed therapists that can deftly clean you up in a mere 30 minutes. Or as well like to call it, an upsize in 30 Minutes!
With the progressive shift in body perception, Brazilian waxing has already become the basic grooming standard for modern women. While the men have been sorely lagging behind in their waxing habits, we think it’s the perfect time for them to catch up!
There is a first time for everything and at STRIP, we know how nerve-wrecking your first experience can be. While the mere thought of a Boyzilian may induce awkward squirms and bashful blushing from even the fittest Muscle-Mary, we make sure that every STRIP Boyzilian virgin gets a thorough run-down on the treatment specifics, as well as a few calming drops of Bach Flower Remedy to ease their nerves. And for those who are more squeamish, we even have a squeezy stuffed animal pal to accompany them during the treatment.
STRIP waxed a Full Monty
STRIP, the international waxing guru, is ensuring a SMOOTH performance for Singapore’s first ever Full Monty production, transforming the entirely male cast from chunks to hunks! Providing full-body waxing for the men of this Baring new local production, this cheeky collaboration hopes to STRIP-bare the misconceptions on male grooming and accentuate its importance in our contemporary society.
STRIP – THE MINISTRY OF WAXING SETS THE STANDARDS
Strip is charging forth with a sworn belief to uphold the hygiene standards of the waxing industry. Aside from being at the forefront of waxing techniques and quality pre and post wax care (not to mention our hip campaigns), we are stubbornly adhering to setting the benchmark for cleanliness during treatment – No Double Dipping mantra intact and the establishment of your Personal Strip Hygiene Pack – one individual hygiene pack for every bush waxed!
NO DOUBLE DIPPING
Many are not aware of the severity of Double Dipping and sad to say, it is a common practice in almost every waxing salon. Double Dipping refers to the use of a singular spatula while doing a Brazilian, allowing the spatula, which has had intimate skin contact with the client, to be re-inserted into the communal wax pot. And we don’t need to tell you what happens next.
Many falsely assume that the heat of the wax warmer (typically heated to 48 Degree Celsius) destroys all bacteria and germs. Not true! The wax warmer requires needs to be at 94 Degree Celsius for at least 20 minutes to do so. Can anyone say yeuww?
PERSONAL STRIP HYGIENE PACK
Once again, Strip has stepped up a notch in its top quality treatments and services with individually packaged Personal Strip Hygiene Pack for each and every customer. True to our HSQ(Hygiene, Speed and Quality) mantra, we pre-seal portions of products needed for each Brazilian and Boyzilian to clinch the title for the most hygienic waxing tools and practice in town, at no extra cost!
- Disposable Latex Gloves to prevent cross contamination
- Fresh Cotton Pad for pre-waxing disinfecting solution
- Brand new pieces of Disposable Wooden Spatulas
- Pre-sealed Wet Wipes
- Cotton Bud for application of post wax product
Strip Brazilian and Boyzilian are priced at p1200 and p1950 respectively.
Great abs and broad shoulders could land you the first few dates, but what would make the modern vixen stay with you besides your great sense of humor? It’s your even greater manhood.
It’s true, bigger is always better. So some put socks and other stuff just to jack it up, or grow a mountainous amount of hair to camouflage it. But what would happen when your sweetie finally wants to see the real thing? It’s time to Upsize it!
One way is to use cosmetic surgery. But this can be insanely expensive and dangerous. Fortunately there’s a safer, non-invasive treatment that can take as little as 30 minutes–the Boyzilian, exclusively available at Strip Manila.
Born in Singapore as STRIP: MINISTRY OF WAXING, Strip Manila is part of a global chain of waxing salons stretching from Shanghai to London, and known for their mantra of HSQ (Hygiene, Speed and Quality). It was the first salon to introduce the “No Double Dipping” Commandment, and is famous for several innovations, such as the Hygiene Pack (where every customer receives a new individually sealed pouch of disposable waxing equipment); and of course, the Boyzillian.
Strip Manila’s Boyzilian relieves you of excess fleece down south, leaving only the good stuff for you to flaunt. Years of study and research by the salon’s Singapore-based Research and Development team, ensures an almost pain-free strip. With the Boyzillian, guys now have a safe and effective way of transforming from caveman to Adonis, without the fig leaf.
So guys, no more excuses! Be the big man you claim to be. It’s time to make up for all the tough jobs that you ask women to do. It’s time to show women what you’re really made of, and rise to the occasion!
