Well, if everyone did it, they couldn't call it the Garden state anymore...

Don't look now, New Jersey, but the long arm of the state might be moving into your bikini area.

''The state Board of Cosmetology and Hairstyling is moving toward a ban on genital waxing altogether after two women reported being injured in their quest for a smooth bikini line.

Both women were hospitalized for infections following so-called "Brazilian" bikini waxes; one of the women has filed a lawsuit, according to Jeff Lamm, a spokesman for New Jersey's Division of Consumer Affairs, which oversees the cosmetology board.''

Somehow, New Jersey is the last state I would imagine actually having a board of Hairstyling. It's funny that they feel the need to protect their citizens from this, but not mullets. I'm just glad though that someone's protecting the children from waxed twats.

''Technically, genital waxing has never been allowed — only the face, neck, abdomen, legs and arms are permitted — but because bare-it-all "Brazilians" weren't specifically banned, state regulators haven't enforced the law.

"The genital area is not part of the abdomen or legs as some might assume," Lamm said.

She then looked wistfully into the distance and added, '' my husband Larry, for example...''

''Spa owner Linda Orsuto, who owns 800 West Salon & Spa in Cherry Hill, estimates that most of 1,800 bikini waxes performed at her business last year were Brazilian-style.

"It's huge," she said, adding that her customers don't think their bikini lines are anyone's business but their own. "It's just not right."

She said many customers would likely travel across state lines to get it and some might even try to wax themselves.''

You'll only get my waxed pussy when you pry it from my cold, dead fingers...

Surely I'm not the only one who really, truly doesn't give a crap who wants hair ripped off their genitals? Surely this does not require any regulation whatsoever? Surely any news organ that propagates this twaddle must require all participant employees to schedule a brazilian immediately? (yes, men too)

Also........ if the genitals aren't part of the legs, and they aren't part of the abdomen... what's left? The thorax??
