"How do I say this delicately? I understand the need for a little trimming, but when you're faced with the full monty, you don't always want the full monty. Bluntly, I'm referring to the recent phenomenon of bikini waxing for men — we've written about it, the NYT did a huge piece on it, and I expect an upcoming Girls episode to deal with this (literally) delicate subject very soon. I've never been tempted to go bare down there, but, full disclosure, I have seen it on someone, and man, was I surprised. Maybe it does make your package look bigger, but there's something gnarly about completely smooth skin in that particular dude region. Disturbing, even. Needless to say, our fifth date didn't have a happy ending."
