Hi and welcome,
My name is Andrew Thompson. I own and operate Reef Studios in Rockhampton, Queensland. I've been working on bodies since 1999 and opened this clinic in 2010.
Men's Brazilian Waxing is a very common treatment nowadays but despite this, it's easy for prospective waxing clients, especially guys, to become confused by what it all means.
To help solve that, I've set up this dedicated page on Male Brazilian Waxing where you will find all of my prices, after care tips and answers to all your questions.
I want to show you that Brazilian Waxing is one of my specialties, and I want you to walk through the door feeling comfortable and relaxed.
So that's the spiel :)
Please don't hesitate to call if you have any questions or to make a booking for a Brazilian Wax.
If you prefer, you can also use the handy form to book online.
Have a brilliant day.
Styles & Prices ★ Rockhampton Men's Brazilian Waxing & Bikini Waxing
Men's Basic Bikini Wax
The Speedo Bikini (or basic bikini) removes hair from the sides and top of your undies line but not from the genitalia. This style suits guys who wear briefs or Speedos and are happy with their leg and pubic hair. If you have a hairy chest and belly, I suggest leaving the top alone as it will look more natural.
The Boxer Bikini (or boyleg bikini) is the same as above but extends further down the leg. Popular with guys who wear trunk-style boxer shorts, such as Tradies or Bonds stretch boxers.
Neither of these options include penis, bum crease, perineum, or scrotum.
Speedo Bikini: $39
Boxer Bikini: $69
Men's Brazilian Waxing
The Athletic Brazilian wax is popular with active guys, e.g. cyclists, dancers, runners, who wear tight sports attire. Only the penis, scrotum and perineum are waxed, leaving the hair intact along the bikini line and belly. This eliminates worry about getting ingrowns from chaffing, while still enjoying the maximum skin-on-skin sensitivity during sex.
Athletic Brazilian: $75
With bum crease $89
The Speedo Brazilian is based on the Speedo Bikini wax but also removes hair from the scrotum, penis, base of penis shaft, & perineum for a clean and sexy feel.
The Boxer Brazilian extends further down the leg. Again, a top strip is optional. This style is popular with guys who wear stretch boxers and don't want hair poking through them.
Speedo Brazilian: $75
Boxer Brazilian: $105
With bum crease: add $14
With bum cheeks & crease: add $40
The Wedge is a narrower version of the Speedo Brazilian. It is popular with guys who want to look their best while wearing very little or nothing at all and don't want to worry about hairy bits popping out the sides. The Wedge gives a slimming effect to bigger guys and also looks stunning beneath ripped abs.
The Boxer Wedge extends further down the leg. This is another favourite for guys who wear trunk-style stretch boxer shorts.
Wedge Brazilian: $75
Boxer Wedge Brazilian: $105
With bum crease: add $14
With bum cheeks & crease: add $40
It all comes off amigo! By far, the 4X Brazilian is the most popular Brazilian wax style.
The 4X Boyleg is the same but extends further down the leg for guys who wear boxer shorts.
4X Brazilian: $75
4X Boyleg Brazilian: $105
With bum crease: add $14
With bum cheeks & crease: add $40
Tips & tricks ★ Rockhampton Men's Bikini and Brazilian Waxing
- Wear loose fitting clothing to your treatment. If you are receiving a Men's Brazilian Wax, ensure that you wear undies made of cotton so the skin can breathe, or alternatively, wear none. Don't wear silks or satins until the skin has calmed.
- Moisturise your genitals that morning or even just before you come in for the treatment. Dry skin tries to draw moisture from any source, including the wax, which in turn makes it stick and more painful to pull off.
- Don't have sex or masturbate within a few hours before a treatment as your testicles will still be tender.
- Use a proper after-wax lotion for at least a day after the treatment, and again when regrowth begins to appear. A bottle of after-wax lotion costs $18 and will last for ages.
- After a wax, avoid chlorine pools, saunas, the gym, and hot tubs until your skin has calmed down, to minimise the risk of inflammation.
- Sweating will increase the recovery time. If you live near a beach, a swim in salt water is great.
- Avoid colognes and antiperspirants until the skin has calmed down.
- You can also make a saline wash using half a teaspoon of salt in a glass of warm water, and pad it over the area.
- Do not exfoliate the waxed area until it has calmed down completely. Your skin may return to normal quickly or it could take 48-72 hours.
- As regrowth comes through at about the 3 week mark, gently exfoliate each day then follow with Caron lotion.
- Waxing Treatments should be spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart. Your hair should be at least 5mm long for the wax to grip it.
- You can also read about what a Brazilian Wax entails in the Knowledge Base article, About Brazilian Waxing.
Common Questions ★ Rockhampton Men's Bikini and Brazilian Waxing
Will my Therapist be male or female?
Your therapist will be me, Andrew Thompson. I am arguably the most experienced Brazilian Waxing therapist in Australia.
I only want a female therapist. How do I make sure I get one?
Every salon owner in the world knows that when a guy rings up specifically asking for a female therapist to do his Brazilian, then he's one of two things; a homophobe - which makes him unstable and probably violent, or a perve hoping to shoot his load while some innocent girl does his treatment - which makes him a sex predator. Don't be that guy, and if you already are, it's not cool dude - Seek help.
If I get a Brazilian, will it increase sensitivity during sex?
Yes, dramatically. The difference is amazing.
A friend said that guys who get Brazilians are sickos because they look like young boys.
Hmm, yeah, that's a really weird thing to say, right? I've heard it a few times over the years and it still makes me cringe. As a father of four, I can assure you that the genitalia of a pre-pubescent boy looks nothing like that of a waxed man. A boy's tackle is just ... nothing, a hideous little dangly bit and a couple of bumps that do bugger all. Does that really remind your friend of a waxed adult? Seriously? Sorry, but your friend has a kiddie fixation. Don't let them babysit.
I'm hung like a hamster. I'm stressed that you'll laugh at my package.
With all the hype about penis enlargements, erectile dysfunction, and premature ejaculation, it's no wonder that guys today are the most sexually insecure in history. It's all rubbish though and you definitely won't be judged. In any case, I'm only here to remove your hair, not give you a scorecard. If you want to know more about male sexual insecurity, here's an extended article I've written on my anatomy website:
Penis Fallacies and Realities
Is Brazilian Waxing just for gay guys?
Not remotely. Maybe 10% of my clients tell me they're gay, another 10% bi, but the vast majority are straight. I assume that last figure because straight guys don't feel compelled to explain their sexuality because it's the norm.
How old do I have to be to get a Bikini Wax?
I will wax a guy's Speedo Bikini which is basically along the leg crease from age 16. I won't do a male Brazilian, i.e. any treatment of the scrotum or penis until age 18. Generally though, it's rare to get teenage guys asking for a Brazilian Wax. I think they like to retain their hair for a few years, perhaps in celebration of reaching adulthood. The desire to be smooth generally kicks off from early twenties with no upper age limit - I have waxed guys over 80 many times.
How much does waxing hurt?
As a general guide, the feeling is like being slapped with a plastic ruler and fades quickly. Follow up treatments are gentler than the first, as the hair bulb hasn't had time to fully re-develop.
I'm worried that I'll get a boner during my Brazilian treatment.
Guys often get hard and sometimes I see them having a bit of an internal crisis, but seriously, don't stress. It doesn't mean you're gay or being unfaithful to your partner or whatever. Given the fact that you're lying naked in front of a stranger who is using oils and warm wax, that can be a bit of an adrenaline rush. To be honest, I'm more surprised when someone doesn't harden up. Seriously though, it is easier and faster to wax a penis when it's erect and you will get a cleaner result, so don't worry. The only thing you need to focus on is feeling comfortable with yourself, and that includes not beating yourself up over a reaction that's perfectly natural.
What type of guys get Brazilians?
The majority of my male Brazilian waxing clients are professionals, tradies, and public servants. People in the public eye such as police officers, nurses, business owners, lawyers, politicians, and teachers are common. IT guys too. Prison guards is a new demographic on the rise. It really is an 'Everyday Joe' thing. The one stand-out observation I've made in the last year is that many new clients are going through a life-changing event, e.g. divorce or new partner or just moved to town and trying something random and new.
Is Waxing Permanent?
No. Over years, waxing may have a general thinning effect but if you stop waxing, it will return to its previous state. If you want a more permanent solution, Reef has two options, Active Enzyme which is used in conjunction with waxing, or PTF Hair Removal which is a light-based treatment. Here are the links to each page:
PTF Hair Removal
Will I have to get on all fours to have a Brazilian?
No. A lot of places still ask clients to get on their hands and knees but I have no idea why. I will do my best to preserve your modesty at all times, and you won't need to get into any strange positions at all.
Can you do a waxing outcall to my home?
Sorry no, it would make the treatment too expensive. Wax pots take around 40 minutes to heat up, and I would have to charge for that time. If I preheat the pots, then I risk spillage during transportation, which again is a costly (and messy) affair.
Can I book a spray tan for after my wax treatment?
Unfortunately no. The after wax lotion will create a barrier between your skin and the tanning solution. Ideally you should leave the after wax lotion on, then go for a spray tan in a day or two.
What could prevent me having a treatment?
To save replication here, this article in the Reef Knowledge Base lists the contraindications and reasons why you may not be suitable for treatment.
Do I have to hold my own junk and wear one of those stupid paper g-strings?
No, I want your hands out of the way and there's no point wearing anything. Male genitalia has a lot of loose skin, and during waxing, it needs to be stretched firmly. I don't agree with the general policy in the industry that a male client has to hold his own skin tight, and nor that they should somehow do it through a fabric layer. It's crazy and dangerous and it's why so many guys get bruises and skin tears at other places. It also gives an untrained Therapist an excuse to blame the client when something goes wrong. My focus is on client safety, not the timidness of under-trained therapists.
A salon told me they were Reef Beauty Certified. What does this mean?
Some therapists come to me for training. They receive a certificate upon completion listing details of their particular level of skill. It is important to note that I only accredit individual therapists, not an entire salon. Any therapist making the claim that they trained with me will be happy to present their credentials.
