Balls to That: UK Men Love Back, Sack & Cracks. How do Irish Lads Stack up?

Men with hairy backs (sacks and cracks): be very afraid. The Boyzillian is back and is on the rise since 2010 if a press release from Wahanda – packed full of stats and percentages – I’ve received is to be believed.

Before you reach for the Veet though, this just refers to our friends across the water and not Irish men. I have a feeling the statistical data on them might be quite thin on the ground …

English guys are embracing smooth skin on their rude bits and it’s all Golden Balls’ fault. Yep, Becks is to blame once again. Not content with wearing Victoria’s skimpies, now he’s influencing suggestible types to have it all whipped off on the therapist’s table and what might surprise you is UK blokes are more into the whole thing than their American counterparts – about five times more so. It’s not a pink pound phenomenon either and tends to mirror fashion trends. Eh – apparently. Can you see my eyebrows? No, of course you can’t – sure they’re way up in my hairline.

And “aha,” is what you’re thinking: “their birds are buying for them.” Apparently not - only 2.76% of back wax offers are bought as gifts, according to Wahanda’s survey.

So – and I too found this hard to fathom myself – this means that men are voluntarily entering beauty salons, having hot wax applied to their barse and ball area and then subjecting themselves to having it ripped off? And paying for it?

Jaysis. Fair play men. I never thought yiz had it in yiz.

Will it catch on here? Has it? Do you know of anyone who’s had it done? Dish in a comment!

    I have friends who get back and chest waxed, this is for comfort as much as appearance. Don’t mind that but WHY would a straight fella need to get his bumholio waxed? Who would be looking there like? Would a trim or a shave not do as well?
    And speaking as someone who accidentally got hers waxed (totally misunderstood the bikini wax description and was thrilled to get my hairy bum cheeks done) It HURTS. So much. And the hair is there for a reason. Without it I couldn’t have a sneaky fart for weeks!

  • MilkyMoo says:

    …so you know how sore it is to have your bikini area or even legs waxed? Now imagine it’s a ball-sack. I cannot fathom how any man could submit to such torture.

    I can actually understand the back and shoulders thing if a guy was a little self-conscious and was going on holidays or whatever, but nothing in the pants area. Shudder.

    I’d be freaked out by those little guys winking up hairlessly at me.

  • MilkyMoo says:

    Acat I nearly vomited laughing at your sneaky fart reference!!!!!!!

  • Acat: BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHSNort! I often remark to the OH that he is lukcy he has a muffler back there for sneaky farts.

    and Kirstie! you said BARSE! Whahahahahahah. I am going to go round saying that word in my head all day now and chuckling to myself like a loon when I do… barse… hehehehe

    Speaking of: what is the Longest hair in the human body?
    A: a bum hair. cos when you pull it, it makes your eyes water!

  • Brass Neck says:

    I think it’s very telling that our reaction is “What? The crazy bastards!” whereas we’re ‘happy’ to submit to it ourselves (well, I’m not).

    If it seems insane that men do it, it should seem insane that we do it. Fight the power. Hairily. :D

  • Omg I got the ultimate uncontrollable fits of giggles at the sneaky farts line Acat hehehehe

  • My other half is a particularly hairy man himself. I was never a fan of excessive hair but there is something rather rugged and manly about it!
    Two years ago he got his chest and shoulders waxed for a trip to Thailand because of the warm climate. I was appalled and immediately missed the rug!

    I certainly hope this doesnt catch on. It’s bad enough guys are waxing their chests in order to wear those awful Geordie Shore/JLS low cut tees. Bring back the rugged caveman!

  • Fiona says:

    ACAT! That has me rolling around the place! :lol:

  • LoCo says:

    Acat – bwwwahhhhhhaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhaaaaaa
    burst out laughing out loud in work .
    I’ll be fired one of these days laughing at beaut.

  • rubytuesday says:

    I would hate if Mr. Tuesday got rid of the chest rug, but would be VERY happy if he manscaped his nether-regions. Wouldn’t subject myself to it of course though!!
