Depends on Where You Go

I've been having the full brazilian for years, but moved to the Seattle area from Texas recently and had to find a new waxer. Let me tell you, having a good take-it-all-off Brazilian wax requires a waxer with talent, experience, and the right kind of wax.
A good waxer will make you feel like you're there for the most ordinary event in the world, that it is no big deal at all to be spreading warm/hot wax on your undercarriage with a popsicle stick and waiting 30 seconds for the wax to harden to then tear the hair out.
The waxer I go to now is terrific - she's from Brazil, for real, and absolutely adores her job. You'd have to love it to do it well, really. The first one I went to in West Seattle was incredibly painful and generally miserable to be around. And slow, which is very bad.
Don't go for a wax with a hangover or PMS. Leave your inhibitions at the door. And if you're worried about looking like a little girl, or that it will look weird somehow, get over it. It grows back in a couple of weeks.
