You do what?!!? Better known as the story of “how I went from seeing twenty models a day to seeing twenty vaginas a day”.
Yes, you read that correctly. I see, on average, 20 vaginas each day! If you would have told me a few years ago that my new career would have me seeing naked women (and some men!) all day, I would have thought you were kidding. You see, I used to be the Bookings Editor at O, the Oprah Magazine. I thought I had hit the big time. I was producing fashion and beauty shoots, hiring models and makeup artists, and going on set with actresses and real women every day. Thrilling, for sure, but after a year and a half it got old, and I decided that I was ready to try my hand at something completely different.
I had always had an interest in skincare and beauty (I should own stock in Sephora), so I registered for classes to become a New York State Licensed Esthetician. I fell in love with it and realized that I also had a love of technology and science. That led me to a laser hair removal course, which I loved even more. Not sure whether I’d end up giving facials or Brazilians, I jumped into the job market with gusto. These days I work at a boutique laser hair removal center in Manhattan and see anywhere from 15-30 clients a day performing hair removal on ALL areas of the body from head to toe.
Why am I sharing this all with you? Because in my new life I have learned more about women than I ever imagined. When these women bare it all, it’s more than just their naked bodies. They ask questions that other women need answers to. They make mistakes that women need to know about. The day to day job is crazy, surprising and hysterical. I used to hear a whole lot of “fabulous” “gorgeous” and “amazing” from models and photographers. Now what I hear most is:
“You can take everything off from the waist down.”
More to come. After seeing 20 vaginas a day I have a lot to say and can’t wait to share it with you.
