“The hair down there”

Now, I know that the stripper-ization of the nation has gone on for a while now. There's been the "The Girls Next Door," stripper pole toy, and the — um, reshaping of certain areas into fun shapes (with an exact-o knife?? — link possibly NSFW) — but I guess I didn't see them as previews of the apocalypse until I ran into this at the local Duane Reade over the weekend:

I guess it's not shocking they don't show "samples" of the treated hair color like they do on head-hair boxes, though I'm sure that's just a few years away.

Either it's a sign of the apocalypse or I'm just getting old. Could be both.

I need to take a shower.

P.S. What did all of the Bettys of the world do to deserve this association?

P.P.S. Apparently this product is less new (link possibly NSFW but no photos) than I realized….

EDIT: A little more research reveals that the founder of the company is Nancy Jarecki. Whose husband Andrew co-founded Moviefone, then used some of his earnings to create 2003's "Capturing the Friedmans." Andrew's brother is Eugene Jarecki, also a documentarian. The world, she is an odd and connected place.

    You know when I found out that as the hair on your head goes gray so does the hair, down there, I knew I’d be dying it. 


    I’m not seeing anyone right now but I think it might be fun to suprise my lover with a hot pink crotch!

    Have you ever noticed all the products there are for women to keep up with the beauties we are all suppose to be?  Hair dye, teeth whitening, cellulite gel, face masks, nail strengtheners, hair removers.  I can not possibily keep up with all of this and now I am supposed to dye the vadge?  I don’t think so!!!!

    Yah, god forbid someone should have a hair out of place or an unsmooth line somewhere. I just try to bear in mind that it’s a lot of pressure from companies, who need to sell their product, and they just keep creating new problems for which they are then the miracle worker solutions. There’s no basis in reality for any of it.

    (Not that I’m immune; it’s not like I don’t shave the legs or the pits, yanno, but it’s important to know where to draw the line.)
