Brazilian waxing is a type of waxing involving the bikini area This procedure involves the complete removal of hair from the buttocks and adjacent to the anus, perineum and vulva (labia majora and mons pubis). It can be thought of as a more extreme form of bikini waxing. The majority of types of Brazilian waxing leave a small line of pubic hair above the vulva, commonly known as the "G-Wax" or just "Brazilian". Waxes that completely remove the pubic hair are either termed "Hollywood" or "Sphynx" depending on the salon visited. Sometimes the term Full Brazilian Wax, Full Bikini Wax or FBW or eBodyWax is used. While mainly associated with females, the practice is engaged in by males as well. It is named after Brazil, the country with which it is most often associated and from which the modern practice originated.
