Do you shave everything, trim it? Have you gotten laser?

I don't understand how anyone uses razors. I tried once when I was in highschool like 8 years ago and it made me so diabolically itchy that I've always been afraid to do it again. Now I just use hair clippers and it does the trick just fine.

Anonymous 18069


It's razor burn, which means you were too rough on your mons. I use an electric razor, then gently with a regular razor and aftershave.

Anonymous 18091

i find when i go from long hair to bald it only itches. if i'm shaving every 2-4 days its fine.
wtf do you mean by mons? giving me war flashbacks to the lc luna thread like 3 months ago

Yes, I got a few ingrowns when the roots wee growing back in, I think having at least some ingrowns are unavoidable if you don't actively exfoliate (I don't).

I haven't shaved down there in like 5 years, I really should but no one sees down there any ways.


does anyone here know how to make cheap meals that are healthy Anonymous 18045[Reply]

i am broke and only have 400 bucks in my name so i am wondering if anyone here knows how to cook cheap meals for weightloss

Cheapest pasta you can buy and/or cheapest rice you can buy. Get a few cheap spices snd/or canned tomatoes. Beans are cheap and a complete protein. Count calories/protein.

Anonymous 18049

Also frozen white fish (like tilapia) and frozen vegetables. Canned tuna can be cheap too but try to limit it to a few times a week to avoid mercury poisoning. If you drink coffee switch to instant coffee (just think of it as something different than coffee and it's ok).

This is a thread that taught me how to cook. Hope it helps you as well nona.

Healthy food is cheap to make and if you know what you're doing, you can make it taste good too.
If you have a target nearby, they have packs of six large chicken breast for under 3 dollars per pound. I like to trim them up and bread them in panko mixed with ground pepper, oregano, rosemary, and paprika. Then, you just fry them in peanut or corn oil. Super cheap to make, tasty and very healthy.

Anonymous 18126

Oats, rice, bananas, peanuts, sunflower seeds, and beans/lentils are cheap and healthy. Don't be afraid to season your food if you don't like things bland. Spices are proven to help slightly with weight loss.

The only time in my life when my acne went away was when I was takong oral birth control, but BC absolutely killed my libido and made my incredibly dry 'down there'. So I stopped taking BC and now my acne is back. My acne seems to be hormone related but idk what to do because I don't want the other side effects I listed. Any advice?

Anonymous 18123

You could try drinking spearmint tea. It's a proven anti-androgen and helps a lot with my hormonal acne. I have noticed it makes my cycles shorter, but no other side effects. Just drink it on the days when your acne is particularly bad and don't overdo it and you should be alright.
Eating a lot of fiber also helps, in my experience. Some people say it helps your body get of extra hormones. Kinda makes sense, since it helps your body get rid of waste, in general? It's good to increase your fiber intake slowly, though, so your digestive system gets used to it.

Anonymous 18124

Agree with the cotton/silk sheets, but also would like to add that it's best to wear cotton/silk clothing if you have body acne.

Anonymous 18125

This advice might sound meme-y to you, but the reason you hear people repeating it is because it actually does work for many people. Especially if you follow through with ALL of it at once, rather than jut picking one thing and expecting that to single-handedly resolve the issue.
If following all of the lifestyle changes people recommend at once STILL doesn't work for you, then you're probably a good candidate for accutane. It's worth trying everything else first, though, considering all the side-effects of accutabe.

Speak for yourself. I like skinny men a lot they are my favorite type actually.

Anonymous 9561

On average, the majority of men are held to a different cultural standard of beauty. It's fine you dig a non-conforming standard, but by nature of wanting non-standard beauty, you are going to have a harder time finding men that reject the societal standard of beauty, but still put in enough effort for their own personal ideal of beauty. You are simultaneously seeking someone who doesn't care what others think about what he looks like, but he cares about what he looks like, a relatively rare trait.

Anonymous 9567

Outlier tastes like chubby chasers in men don’t get a say in shaping societal norms. On average I think western men are very out of shape, tending either towards too skinny sickly pale incels or too fat neckbeard hairy incels. I would think most other women my age agree that the “hottest” male body is relatively muscular and tall

I have that epilator but I'm a ng with ng hair and it was so painful i'm getting flashbacks

I just use veet now. Nair burns me and never does the job for some reason.

What I'm saying is- it might be helpful to invest in a chemical depilatory

Anonymous 18014

How do you use nair without it potentially going in your hole? Will it not give you a chemical burn?

Anonymous 18016

Oh god. Oh no.

Do NOT use an epilator anywhere near your genitals. You are in for some of the worst pain of your life if you do. Epilators hurt enough just using them on your legs and underarms. Go get a fucking wax instead. At least it'll be quicker.

Anonymous 18017


Oh I'm dumb, I didn't realize this was a 2-year old thread. Still, let this be a warning. You're going to be crying with an epilator stuck in your ass because it snags your skin too.

Just keep to the time limit written on the packaging and dont cram it in your hole and you'll be fine.

Anonymous 18031[Reply]

How to dress like Anna Karina but still look modern and fashionable?

Anonymous 18040

Tops : blouses, shirts with stylish patterns, simple tees, cardigans, turtlenecks

Bottoms : jeans with a nice, flattering cut; skirts just above the knee or knee length, always flattering your waist; wear a belt if necessary

Dresses : V-neck, bardot, collared neckline, bateau neckline, ofc a flattering waist. knee high or above but tbh depends on what youre comfortable with anyway.

Coats : trench-coats, blazers, an oversized sweater

Accessories : hats if they really suit you (people dont really wear them anymore tho and i find them very inconvenient), otherwise headbands are the best and most modern option imo, scarves (for your hair too), gold jewelry, preppy tights and socks

Shoes : flats, babies, loafers, high heel loafers

Patterns/textures/colours/etc: no pattern, checkered, vertical lines, wool, cotton, linen, crêpe, velvet, corduroy, bright red, light blue, white, black, light pink, soft and warm browns, beige

makeup : you can go crazy with eyeliner nowadays so go for it. overall, structured but fun. bright lips or bright eye makeup but not both imo

Anonymous 18101

Thank you, I'll try to find some bardot and bateau neckline dresses next time I'm shopping.


perpetual state of hunger Anonymous 17809[Reply]

First of all, I want to start with saying that I am not overweight.

With that out of the way, I'm almost always in a state of hunger. After finishing my meal, I feel that I could finish two more easily. And even if I did that, I can never be full for more than a maximum of 15 minutes before my mind is filled of thoughts of gluttony again. That has been my life since I was a kid and it's agonizing not to give into the urges because being hungry all the time is such torture. I also noticed that I eat faster than literally everyone I've ever met, including my father. I am SO FUCKING HUNGRY that I can't even eat my food in normal sized bites. The only thing that motivates me to work is the thought of getting more food. I am unable to make friends and connect with others as I have no interests beside eating, I only ever talk about food and the weather. I am also very stingy, I guess part of why I was so reluctant to make friends is because I don't want to offer them my food. Is this mental illness?

I got introduced to porn early but was a virgin until pretty late in life. When it comes to fantasies mine are weird but irl I'm completely normal. I also rarely watch porn now and I have way tamer thoughts. The escalating fetish trope is real but it can be undone.

I also find myself attracted to men I shouldn't be attracted to, either because they're ugly losers and satisfy a fetish of mine or because they're too young, too much teen gay porn and shota fucked up my brain.

This is just basic civility, not male behaviour. What does it have to do with attractiveness?

Everything. The fact that men only treat me with basic civility and do stuff for me that women also do means I'm not attractive. They treat me like a man or a faceless NPC but don't register me as an attractive woman.

I can't say I feel the same about such women though I half agree with the other stuff.

A lot of this shit involves society making false promises to women, then it feeds off their undervalued caring/labor afterwards. And you might not like it, but this says more about how efficient the system's conditioning can be…more than how "dumb" such women are. Yes, even the ones that choose it, willingly.

So many of these women are actual technically well-adjusted people that just…buy into what they've been taught and then they might suffer the consequences much later on in their lives. A lot of the stuff we here take for granted is taboo elsewhere. And this isn't without function–
A woman that starts realizing how tenuous and entropic having a child, succumbing to anxiety is…probably going to crash and burn sooner than a woman with conviction and little doubt–even if it's founded on copes or ideology, it can work.

With you, it seems like you've actually kneeled to the "blame women" angle that's pushed heavily. Yes. Some blame rests on women over getting into bad situations, but most of it is simply that the system doesn't want to tell women what is likely to happen–and wants to suppress this information and frame it as the words of just a random few instead of, say…admitting stuff like how most men viscerally devalue women when they have a child, or won't function as a good dad, or how much of it is simply extremely devalued and underappreciated labor….which society absolutely loves. Of course it does.

It's already common for groups of mothers to discourage themselves from speaking freely about the worst parts of being a mother (be is brutal specifics or damage to their bodies, or how they no longer have time for themselves. Or, how their partner never stepped up). And this isn't really just about conforming but…that reality is brutal, so brutal that it disenchants and disillusions so the people that have a vested interest in it conceal it to protect their own mental health. We're thoroughly toasted here so we know the worst, lol, and I wouldn't wish it on anyone that already has a child.

Oh. And your read on "if her partner is a subpar male" is more awkward than anything because, like… in real life, many or most people that are earnest and devoted won't fraPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

I don't think pointing out that some women did this to themselves when they could have, I don't know, done literally anything else with their life is the equivalent of putting the blame on women or absolving men. And if women can't self critique and understand how we are culpable in our own oppression, we will never be able to fight it.

Women's tendency to "see the good in men" is mostly rationalizing away their shitty traits in order to be able to accept them as a partner. Most humans - male and female - are afraid of being alone, but also afraid of taking chances with high stakes. That's why people ending up in relationships with someone they've 'settled' for, rather than someone they really desired, is such a prevalent stereotype.

A lot of middle class women who walk willingly into the trap of motherhood do so because they feel bored and all their friends are doing it. It's conformity and, in a way, laziness.

Two of my closest female friends had kids for that exact reason and regretted it after. They also told me I am the only person they've admitted this to. I see them, in front of everyone else, play the Happy Good Mommy For Whom Childbirth Was The Greatest Day Of Their Life.

I would be happy for them if THEY were happy, but they aren't. They're exhausted and they're not allowed to express their true feelings or they'll be labeled monsters and Bad Mothers. They'll keep their mouths shut and keep going through the motions for the next two decades.

And being socialized to not worry about the ability of males as partners to actually act as supportive partners and parents is just another example of how we allow ourselves to be exploited willingly. Women SHOULD care if a man qualifies as a "subpar male" if they want to have a family with him. Does he make very little money and have low self esteem? He's DEFINITELY going to be a shit father.

I also think women who keep their mouths shut about how shitty motherhood is are, in their own way, class traitors and collaborators.

Girls deserve to know how bad it is. And guess what - women really aren't ACTUALLY protecting themselves by playing The Good Mommy. Society still shits on them if they perform perfectly. Ok, if someone gets demonized if they say anything about regretting having a kid or that it's a miserable existence. So fucking what?? She wasn't lionized as a mother. She's a socially approved domestic slave and a second-class citizen.

Anonymous 16141

True. I also hate how people talk about how much happier moms are than non moms. Any mother will tell you, she’s not actually happier, she’s just too exhausted to pay any attention to anything else besides the kid.

Overpopulation is a myth. It's a misallocation of resources veiled as a "poor people take up too much space" issue. There is more than enough space and resources on this earth, one multibillionaire's wealth could quite literally end homelessness globally or end world hunger but capitalism says it's okay for some of us to hoard wealth because "Well, they earned it!" By exploiting whose labour, I wonder.
