Just in case you were planning to visit New Jersey this summer, this is important news. The Legislature has decided to allow Brazilian waxing.
According to an AP story
The state Cosmetology and Hairstyling Board proposed banning so-called "Brazilian" bikini waxing after two women were hospitalized for infections following the procedure.
On Friday, Consumer Affairs Director David Szuchman effectively killed the plan. In a letter to the board, Szuchman says he won't support the ban, and since his office oversees the board, the ban would never be approved.
While genital waxing has never been allowed in my fine state, it has never been prohibited. In fact, no state prohibits it.
New Jersey had the chance to leap to the forefront in protecting its citizens from the scourge of naughty bits waxing.
Actually, I'm kind of glad this was not pushed through. I prefer to keep the government out of our pants.
Maybe to celebrate one of my upcoming anniversaries, I'll get something waxed.
Either that, or we'll be marketing Crotchety's Bucket O' Brazilian Home Waxing Kit. Look for it in better stores and bodegas soon.
