In normal circumstances I’m fairly dubious about strangers touching me, let alone caressing my hand, but in that moment (and many more to come) it was everything I needed.
Sugaring turned out to be great for my skin - but what I take away from my monthly visits is not hair at all. I love hearing about My Waxing Lady’s life, her children, her home and mostly I love that she is not afraid to pat me on the bum and say ‘Good job girl’.
My interactions with her have made me more open to interacting with strangers than I ever could have imagined. I’ve never been someone shy of touching my friends at all, but now I make it a real priority to reach out physically when ever I can. We live in a very digital world where touch is not only more rare but often more sexualised than it needs to be due to it being not the norm.
Hugs are standard issue for me so I won’t be including them, but here are five go to moves to start touching your friends!
