Am I the only one who finds it funny that on the one hand, someone says, "people who refuse service to men have a problem, and are unprofessional", but then says, "I would not want a gay guy performing certain services on me." It does seem like two sides of the same coin.

Well, if you're in San Diego, I'd really recommend:

SD Wax Queen

It's Jennifer's own salon and she does a supergreat job. She is just so excellent I can't say enough good things about her. I like her environment, it's like some hippie/ fantasy/ enchanted forest. It's fun what she's done to the workspace.

There's many in San Diego that do male stuff, but Jen was one of the first, and she has no attitude at all. Me, I go to her for back, not that. But she has no qualms about removing any hair, wherever it is.

She also gives haircuts, nails, spray tans, etc. But you have to call her the "Queen" though, she's really into being called "The Queen!" Kind of kidding, but she kind of makes sure you know this! She's great smile

I wonder how well a waxing salon (that also offered massage services) aimed at lesbian women with suggestive homoerotica in it's advertisements, and located in an acknowledged gay area of town would fare with straight female clientele? I can think of quite a few groups (Hispanics and Muslims to name two) who would never visit such a salon.

Well, I'm of "Hispanic" ancestry, and I could comment on this. But really, the great users of Hairtell have always avoided any kind of discussions like this. I mean, where do they go, let's get to hair removal.

As pubic hair is very much prone to thickening, distortions, and ingrown hairs, you would be much better served to do permanent hair removal, via electrolysis in this area, if you think you could live without the option to have hair in this area later.

Ya most places with an all female staff won't take on male brazilians (or brazilians in general). The girls are either afraid of being groped/propositioned (there is always one perv out there that does it) or they can't deal with the unexpected functions of the male bits. I think most would rather deal with the same sex parts. Kinda like a guy having to work on a female brazilian with a tampon string hanging out. Some men could look past that and get to work while others may say never again. TMI I know lol.

Oh and sometimes the girl's boyfriend doesn't want them touching another man... I have heard and experienced that before too.

Interesting. I had no idea that they were sexist. I have friends that do this regularly in Los Angeles and have never had a problem. Just dumb luck perhaps??
