He’s your guy, no question about it. You love him for his wonderful sense of humor, his rock hard biceps, and his huge…heart. But that back hair? On San Diego beaches, it’s just not pretty.
Or maybe with your man it’s not a grizzly bear back that bothers you, but instead the prickly post-shave stubble on his chest that rubs you the wrong way – literally.
Either way, you know your guy could seriously benefit from male waxing. Now, all you have to do is talk him into it. Need help? Here are our four ways to convince your man to try waxing.
Tip #1: Make it a date
Want him to try a Manzilian? Promising him you’ll go Brazilian may be all the convincing he needs. If he shows any interest at all, book those appointments ASAP!
Tip #2: Mention the benefits
If your guy is resistant because of what his friends will think of his “manscaping,” arm him with other benefits (besides your happiness). Waxing “down there” helps with hygiene and feelings of cleanliness by eliminating the hair that catches odor and traps moisture, allowing yeast and bacteria to grow. It can also help cut down on chafing during exercise. Back waxing can help his clothing fit better and more comfortably. And let him know that repeated waxing of any body part will help those unwanted hairs grow back finer and sparser.
Tip #3: Make promises you’ll want to keep
Look, San Diego. We all know it’s wrong to bribe. But there’s nothing wrong with making promises or suggesting potential outcomes. In relationships it’s all about the language. “Babe, I have a feeling I’ll be really turned on when you get your back waxed. I can’t promise I won’t immediately want to do that thing we talked about. FYI.”
Tip #4: Make him think it was his idea
You have to be careful with this one. This is your long game, and it’s going to require subtlety. Here’s how it might go:
Day 1: “Babe, did you know Ryan Gossling gets his chest waxed? Surprising, right? I thought he just had a naturally bare chest.”
Day 3 or 4: “Babe, your pecs are so sexy. If that chest hair wasn’t covering them up, I would never let you go to the beach without me. You’d have girls all over you.”
Day 6 or 7: “So apparently Channing Tatum and Ellen DeGeneres yukked it up on her show about how he gets his chest waxed. I think it’s really cool how manly men are like, ‘Look, yeah, I wax. So what?’”
(Let this carry for as long as need be until he shows just the tiniest bit of interest. And then, when the time feels right…)
Day ??: “Hey babe. I’m making my wax appointment. Want me to make one for you, too?” Before he answers, quickly insert Tip #3.
