Each week Lifelounge endeavours to answer your most pressing questions about etiquette, life, love, philosophy, culture and Bill Cosby sweaters. This week we talk about Brazilian waxes and Charlie Sheen.

Anonymous question: Is going Brazilian still considered a popular trend amongst you hard working women folk? Or is it slowly becoming a lost and over received routine due to modern hippie trends becoming more popular like charlie sheen printed tee-shirts and bad choices?

There are so many layers to this question, Anonymous. Many layers. We can tell that you are either (a) a real thinker, (b) curious about female genitals, or (c) a bozo machine.

So, let us attempt to break it down for you.

Firstly, it’d be remiss to speak on behalf of all “hard-working women-folk”, but we will say this: the trend to go Brazilian may or may not have even existed (when asking around a few friends, we found that nobody really got that into total nude pubic regions) in the first place. But if it did – it’s got to have been before Sex and The City made an episode in which Carrie gets stripped bare and they find it significant enough to dedicate an entire scene to it.

– and Samantha is all “The Brazilian makes you do crazzzzy things! Aww yeah! I am sexually liberated, girlfriend! Hubba, hubba!” and Miranda’s all “I’m RSVP-ing ‘NO’ because apparently cynical people don’t enjoy getting semi-kinky”, and Carrie’s all “[squeals] I don’t know, maybe I’ll make the Brazilian wax an analogy for some kind of relationship issue in my next column. [squeals]” –

That episode aired way back in 2000. Even so, we’ve found a few articles posted about the trend going away from 'landing strips' around 2007/08. (Here’s one at salon.com.)

So, perhaps it is, as you suggest, losing its appeal due to this “modern hippie trend” of which you speak. Or maybe it’s not a hippie thing at all – housewives in the ‘50s weren’t exactly hippies, but we’re pretty sure the hairless vajootz wasn’t a ‘thing’ with them.

But then you're equating Brazilian waxes with Charlie Sheen tee-shirts and bad choices becoming more popular nowadays? Probs not, aye. If anybody purchased a Sheen tee-shirt it’s probably already considered out-dated, and was most certainly always in bad taste. And bad choices can’t be more popular today than they were at the dawn of time, right? Or perhaps you were saying that Charlie Sheen tee-shirts and bad choices are intrinsically linked. Which would be right.

In which case, you really don't need us and you have it all figured out.

Wow. Bozo machine is now my new favourite phrase. Meanwhile, I've learned way more about pubes than I ever thought I would and it's only 9.36. Loving the new column so far.

This leads me to wonder about Manscaping and what are women's thoughts on this practice...

I don't think anybody's suggesting it's a bad idea, are they? Hope not. Whatever a lady chooses to do with her body is her biznusss.
