body hair

I went for a massage yesterday, and at the end, my masseuse took the liberty of waxing my back hair. That may be too much information for the squeamish, but I do want to stress that I had very little back hair to begin with.

Asians don’t typically have as much body hair as westerners, and some Vietnamese seem particularly fascinated with the hair that they see on us. I’ve seen kids, for example, run up and touch the arm hair of caucasians in Sapa and here in Hoi An.

My masseuse wanted to extend her waxing to my arms and chest. Youch! I politely declined.
