The Paradox of Porn May 25, 2009
Burning, glue-like liquid is applied onto the skin and then, ripped off in an effort to thin any outcoming hair. It’s unnatural and painful yet, waxing similar to other industries, continues to bring in millions of dollars from unneccesary and over glamorized procedures, specifically in the bikini region.
Thanks to salons all over the country and in the UK, girls as young as 8 are now permitted to get their, “virgin” hairs removed, even for a discount in places like Wanda’s European Skin Care Center, a waxing salon in New York. The owner of this salon claims, in accordance with the Divine Caroline that,
‘Virgin hair can be waxed so successfully that growth can be permanently stopped in just two to six sessions. Save your child a lifetime of waxing … and put the money in the bank for her college education instead!’
Rather than not spending the money to begin with, we’re supporting an industry that allows for fully grown women to look pre-pubescent. And along with this industry, full of painful muslin pulling identity crushers, is the industry of porn. Taking in the prepubescent image a step further, are women who are anything but. They’re countless acts of “naughtiness” serve as contrast to the child like image that their pubic areas bring. It’s yet another way that our culture serves to hypersexualize young women.
