Remember that Pop Sugar e-mail list?
« on: May 10, 2018, 01:39:04 PM »
Some time ago I posted a link to some story I got from this e-mail list that I think I got on initially as related to my attempts to market my bath foam formula.  Anyway, they just sent me one with the subject line, "How 1 Editor Got Her Skin Wedding Ready in a Few Months".

I puzzled for some time over what a "skin wedding" was, tentatively concluding it was some fad of people getting married naked.  I figured it took months to make arrangements to get all the attendees nude.  I had to follow the link to realize it was about getting one's skin "wedding-ready".

Just curious, what inspired this idea? What made you look at a normal bubble bath and say, "There has to be a better way"?

Communication with someone who'd just taken over editorship of a 'zine in which I'd written an essay (contest entry) in response to a remark on a radio show by a doc who'd wanted to ban bubble baths.  Turned out one of the new editor's children had the very problem that'd been complained of, namely urogenital irritation from bubble bath & shaving cream.

Hmm.  Like football.  Something kids like for fun, but because of the injury potential, some wanted to ban.

Come to think of the other thing, though, I do like the idea of a skin wedding.  Women make such a big deal out of wedding clothes, & they're such a waste.  May Pop Sugar's editor's use of words come to pass!
