Metrosexual Mania

Autumn, 2005. keithcancook peers through the pane of a local nail salon, pausing before plunging in. Yes, there are Asians in there. Perhaps as hink says, they will pluck me long time.

My bushy brows are again cause for concern. Concealing my eyes completely. Creating confusion on my face, crawling in contrary directions, completely out of control. Chaotic, cluttered, clumped, and climbing. Jeeze, all I needed was a top hat and cloak and I could pass as MrHydecancook!

I enter the salon. Ugh! It aways stinks in these places! I do not think I will ever get used to it. As usual, I am the only male in sight. A pretty young Chinese girl approaches and asks me in heavily accented English how she can be of service. She seems confused when I ask her if she can fix my eyebrow.

As I begin to use sign language to accentuate my inquiry, two other Chinese women scurry over to assist. I'm explaining that I want my eyebrows waxed, and sort of simulating the procedure with my hands.

The older woman breaks into a big smile as she realizes what I want. Suddenly she switches to Chinese, and all three women begin talking at once. (females do that a lot it seems) They lead me to a chair in the back as everyone in the shop watches us.

They plucked me long time, all right. All three of them. It was a gang pluck. They pressed in close and they were awesome. They used all sorts of balms and waxes and other implements. When they were finished, there was nary a hint of red. I was amazed at how gentle the whole thing was, and how little it irritated my skin.

So there it is. I went to a salon of my own free will. No coercion. No persuasion. No coaxing. And I liked it! Those Asians were so deferential. I want to be with them more. I want to see what else they can do.

Many of y'all who have commented in this series of posts on my budding metrosexuality have urged me to try the "day spa" experience. Of manicures, pedicures and massages. Some have mentioned waxing "other areas", but I do not think I need waxing anywhere else. Maybe a little de-waxing in the ear area, but otherwise I reckon to be wax free.

Now tell me. What can a man expect from a "day spa" experience? What else can they do in there?

Keith, I am glad you have finally overcome your fears, the nausea takes a little longer, those smells are awfull (I know, I use to do massage at a styling salon in my younger days)! I do have to admit I am jealous over your gang pluck, and with three Asian women! Oh well, I guess I will just have to settle for monogamous plucking for now!

Do go for the massage, it is wonderful, just make sure you start with a moderate Swedish massage first; deep tissue, Reiki, and some of the other forms are a little too rough for "virgins". And a word of warning, it is addictive.

Keith ... I'm not ready for that metrosexual look yet, but that "gang pluck" does sound tempting. Can you get a "gang massage" in a "day spa"?

This is for both you and Expat, Keith. While others might suggest the day spa. I'm too frugal and suggest you go online to K's Lounge. You see what those women can do erotic and tasteful. It always helps me relax and is updated daily!

Yagotta get it soft and wet so we can kick/stick it

Well Keith had I known you needed all those things I could have packed the SUV with all my essentials and came to give you all those services. Being that I am a licensed professional in those areas. And you might would have gotten something you didnt think you would get, some additional service that one dont need to train for to administer.

I am the real deal! "Come Get Me!!!"

Yeah, who'd a thunk it, expat ol pal?

Hullo hink. I have a friend who is a professional masseuse and she gave me a deep tissue demonstration one time. Owie! They should put the word "DEEP" all in caps to emphasize what they are gonna do.

I'm seriously considering scheduling myself for some of those things, RLP! See how I've grown?

Scalp treatment? Is that a Native American version of metrosexuality, honni? I never know what to expect in a salon it seems!

I dunno about expectations in day spas, TTA. But the surprises are great!

Thank you for that info, DT. I will look for signs of a good spa and then go!

C'mon and join the throng, old one! Let's take "spa land" by storm.

Aha! I am way ahead of you there, BigGirlzRSweet! I recieved the hot rock treatment from my friend. Now that is truly awesome as you have said! It's sorta odd though. I get sexual urges when under massage. I cannot seem to help myself.

K's lounge? Never heard of it, HORNYVIKING. I will give it a shot on your recommendation!

Yes, and I'm getting more comfortable with it now too, interested. Life goes on...

Shhh. pigcancook has not been informed of these proceedures, PeccaretteKarma. He is not ready for such things, so let's keep this close to the vest...

LMAO, yagotta! Let's see how you handle a good pampering!

I think that our Mayor finds sexiness in everything! We love you sexyfitwoman!

What's a facial, sil? Is that where they pack yer face with green goo?

Yer on, goddessofbitches! Let's discover this New World together!

Oh straightten! Can I keep that offer for a future redemption? Mmm, yummy!

Yes, jadey. I have grown much in this regard.

Ahh, so that's what it was. My mouth just blabs and blabs and my brain never registers the babble, candysoveryverysweet! I love you too, sweetie!

Hello there, tennismaiden! Welcome to The Venting Blog! Lasers, eh? I'm not sure about lasers. They were cool on Star Trek but I don't like the idea of one aimed right between my eyes!
Me and you and a gang of Asians! I like it.

Dang, CnC. Yikes!

waggypolly, all I can say is "owie"!

Jeeze, I hope it means "I want you" cause they were doing the same thing to me, saint!

Electrolises? What in the heck is that? I do not like the name. It sounds um, painful. Besides, I would love to give you a massage, sexymermaid. I assure you it will not hurt. I am actually getting some instruction from my friend who is a pro.

Do you know any Asians who can apply the duct tape, sexyeyes? It just wouldn't be the same without the Asians.

What the hell is wrong with the nutty professor look? LOL

My hat is off to you buddy!

But I must say.... the way you describe it is very tempting!! Perhaps I too could use a "gang pluck"?? LOL LOL

I may even give it a shot... perhaps we should get a bunch of us together and do a day spa together? That might eb interesting... especially if we can get more women with teh attitude of Babel!!

So what do you say gals???? Will ya make it worth or whiles? LOL

We will of course not have any problems "taking it out in trade"!

Listen to DT? Jeeze, are you sure about that, wahinie sweetie?

I've been waiting a long time to hear those words from you, tiller, my dear.

Aw, did you have to go and say that, Babel Fish, baby? Just when I was getting up the nerve you have made me feel slightly embarassed about all this.
Not really. If you could be there I'm certain my courage would be UP!

An interesting idea, fantasylover. A gang of us going for a pluck! That idea has merit. We could be the first gangsta pluckers!

Yes I am, kissmystuff. And thank you for pointing that out!

I've been to the saloon, Div. Probably too many times. Still, I would be happy to have your company the next time I go. After a few drinks we can head over to the salon and let em work us over!
LMAO! Sorry sweetie, I couldn't stop myself from letting that typo pass...

Spa stories, goddess? If you have good spa stories I would be interested in hearing a few of those tales. After I go and give it a shot we can compare notes. Perhaps over a game of Bridge with the ladies? Oh dear, I haven't a thing to wear! Yikes! I'm turning into a girl! Somebody call pigcancook quick!

Aw shucks, southernpeach. T'weren't nothing. (I wore a disguise in case one of my friends saw me)
On or off? Whatever they suggest, I suppose.

Sugar rub? What da heck is a sugar rub, spin? Sounds sticky.

Gosh, EyeCandy. I wish you could see the big damn smile that creased my face as I read your comment! Such a sweetie.
And a helluva flirt too! Yummy...

Well Lil' miss Fondler, as you have seen we have bonds here in BlogLand. I know that many here would support me if I was in a similar situation. (BTW, do you have a new joke ready?)

LOL, good one sexymermaid! No tape will be necessary however. keithcancook appreciates the beauty of women as females. It is of little consequence from what heritage they hail. I am not necessarily particular towards Asians. Mostly I am just unfamiliar with them.

Owie! I had a bad feeling when I first heard that term, NaughtyBlonde. I do not wish to permanently free my brows from each other. What if I change my mind and wish them to unite once more? Then what? Hair implants?
Do those wax off easily?

Aw, Lil. It is so nice to see your trademark "lol" around BlogLand again!

Go read my post My Surprise Spa Experience and you can see what else can happen I just put it up so it may not show yet because the damn queue seems to be stuck again. Ergggg.

BTW, that smell is all the acrylic powder for fake nails.

Okay easy now Keith something just has you a little confused ... Come on Keith just step away from the day spa before it's too late and you start watching Oprah and Martha Stewart.

What is the gall durn hell is going on here. Dammit I miss getting by your blog for a couple of weeks and you go all girlie. This ain't the way for a Peccary to be behaving. If hair removal involves anything other than fire or duct tape it's just wrong.

From Peccary to metrosexual this is indeed a sad day in Blogland.

If you got to pay for a massage and it don't involve lathered up nekkid asian girls rubbing their bodies up and down on you until you get your happy then there is something wrong.

Don't let the ladies try and take away your masculinity with their siren song. Be strong brother. NASCAR will back soon and the world will make more sense again.

S'io credesse che mia risposta fosse
A persona che mai tornasse al mondo,
Questa fiamma staria senza piu scosse.
Ma perciocche giammai di questo fondo
Non torno vivo alcun, s'i'odo il vero,
Senza tema d'infamia ti rispondo

Yes, the massage sounds like a winner for surewomanoirish. I will get the full treatment and report back to y'all on the results. Don't hold yer breath though. I doubt that I will do anything until spring at least. I'm still weighing the idea in my mind.

Ah luke, it is good to see you here in The Venting
once again! And this comment that you have left here is in the finest tradition of the great Venting Blog comments of yore.
LMAO! I have in fact already called out for pigcancook to help me with this. He is not going to be pleased when he discovers what I have been up to while he has been sleeping...

Hello there, hotandhorny! Welcome back to The Venting Blog! I am happy to serve as a reminder for you.
