Can you pee after getting a Brazilian Wax? Apparently, not so much.

So you went and got yourself a Brazilian Wax.

Other than the obvious, have you noticed anything a bit more… unusual… in your daily bathroom activities since you’ve gotten it done?

Well, if you’ve noticed that you’re now PEEING ALL OVER THE SEAT since you’ve gotten waxed, then you’re not alone.

What one gynecologist said, after being asked the question of whether the way a woman pees can change after having a Brazilian, was “yes, and no”.

It’s not the hair — or absence of hair — that affects the urine stream, she said.  It’s the temporary swelling of the newly-exposed body parts that could end up aiming your pee in a direction you may not have expected it to go.  And this is especially true in public bathrooms, where women tend to squat or hover rather than sit.

So short-term effects of a Brazilian wax?  Yes – you’re now quite possibly a human pee sprinkler.  Long-term?  You should be back to peeing like you normally do.

So what’s a woman to do?

If you get waxed and then go to a public restroom before you’ve fully recovered, do your fellow bathroom attendees a favor and put your ass on that seat.  If you don’t, then you’re the one to blame when there’s pee scattered in places you never expected pee to go.
