If you thought that “manscaping” was a strange male grooming habit that had taken the nation’s bros and dudes by storm in recent years, hold on to your marble pouches and banana hammocks. Thanks to George Clooney’s so-called jokes, a new fad called “ball-ironing” is now becoming a hot trend among Hollywood’s aspiring leading men, and if you can’t guess what that phrase means based on the name alone, then you’re sure in for a treat.
According to the Daily Mail, men are now visiting cosmetic experts for a process that uses lasers to remove hairs from a man’s testicles while smoothing out the natural wrinkles.
Men are paying anywhere between $575 and $900 to have their testicles smoothed out with a laser beam. I mean, people have always joked about it, but I guess that James Bond really was ahead of his time.
Call me old-fashioned, but I’m just worried about the kind side effects that such a process could have. Sure, it was funny when South Park joked about it, but this tattoo isn’t nearly as funny if it’s Clooney.
