As it’s fashionable at the moment to indulge in a bit of German-bashing following England’s storming victory , the Diary feels obliged to do its bit this week.
A press release from Taylor Nelson Sofres (whose European Toiletries & Cosmetics Database is feared by Governments and multinationals alike) informing the world that German women are the hairiest in Europe came at just the right moment.
British women, on the other hand, are the most concerned about shaving everything apart from their bikini line – if it’s a “Brazilian” you’re after, try France or Italy. Personally, the Diary can’t help admiring the Germans’ “no compromise” stance. After all, they can go naked and still wear fur.
