Penazzling. WOW, I most certainly didn’t see that one coming. Vijazzling was shocking enough that penazzling didn’t even cross my mind. Maybe it’s because my thoughts didn’t quite wander over into the gay community, which come to think of it, love glitter and hair removal probably more than your average straight woman. Now that I realize this, penazzling should probably have been invented before vijazzling. Hello? Has anyone seen Elton John’s stage costumes? However, I’m still left wondering about the appeal, or the purpose, of it all. Sure, sparkles are eye catching and fun to look at, but once the clothes come off, isn’t the bare skin supposed to be what’s attractive? I mean, if we’re going to adorn our privates in jewels, we might as well dress them up with little hats and turtlenecks….Which, I guess, some of the men already have covered, care of mother nature.
