Is a Professional Ear Picking in your Future?

Tuesday, January 25, 2011

Manicures?? Not for me. My trusty rusty clipper works just fine. Pedicures?? Enough self care will keep the ingrowns away. But now comes news of a Vietnamese custom that I may be able to buy into.

Despite several hundred thousand Americans spending several years of their lives in Vietnam thirty years ago this service is just now making it to the USA.

According to a story in the San Jose Mercury News, Vietnamese practitioners of the ancient art ear wax picking “ have elevated it beyond simply removing ear wax to an experience on par with massage”.

"It brings a lot of happiness," said Silicon Valley resident Nguyen Tuong Tam... He likens a good ear picking to good sex. Indeed, fans of ear picking gleefully talk about "ear-gasms."

“That explains why some customers have been known to blurt out, "Will you marry me!" Ear pickers usually ignore such exclamations as they would words of endearment from a drunk.”

A physician confirms in the article that there is in fact a g-spot located near the ear drum. As far as I know no one has ever connected a mani pedi with a g-spot.

To top it off it is calorie free. No spark points though.

So what do you think? Is a professional ear picking in your future?

    Maybe the coughing is what causes the "ear-gasm"

    Sounds like this could be fun! I'd be interested to know how they avoid triggering the cough response--every time I q-tip my ears, I hit the vagus nerve and that triggers a coughing spell . . . .

    Hmmm I don't think so the last time I had my ears flushed it felt like the cold water they were flushing into my ears was going to come out of my eyeballs. Nothing sexy about that. Makes me wonder what they are doing wrong??????

    emoticon no thanks I equal a visit to my ear, nose and throat specialist with pain.. I usually get drains put in my ears to avoid over or under pressure issues.. I have most lust to punch my ear specialist- that idea doesn't do much for me in that direction lol..
If I can think straight without crying efterwards thats 10 points for me lol.. My specialist has learned to use a numbing agent to avoid me saying bad words..
