My underwear gets so swampy in the summer, a real estate agent could sell a pair to Shrek. The culprit? Nature’s thick, coarse private-part wig and the bane of my existence: pubes. I don’t condone pube shaming, nor do I think they’re dirty. It just so happens that the luscious, beautifully dense afro that sprouts from my scalp, also engulfs my entire mons pubis and — despite endless shaving, waxing, sugaring, and suffering — speedily rises like a phoenix from the ashes every time I banish it for summer. So, imagine my intrigue when I got wind of a ball trimmer (yes, an electronic depilatory device designed for use on the scrotum) from the “below-the-waist” grooming brand, Meridian, that labia-owners swear by for seamless hair removal. Needless to say, I had to try.
