Get drunk first?  take drugs?  Ripping hair out by the roots hurts!  I never managed to finish one leg so you're doing pretty good.

    The first time you use it will be painful because you are pulling ALL the hairs - subsequent treatments will be far less painful because not all the hairs grow back at the same rate, as well as you usually won't get all of them anyway. I think the hair follicle gets desensitized as well - it doesn't hurt me anymore and in fact, it's just a tugging sensation that actually feels good. The only places that remain sensitive are some of the groin areas and some places on the leg. Make sure the hairs are about 1/4" long before epilating - this is really important. Some epilators have attachments to do this step. The first time, have a bowl of ice cubes in water with a washcloth - after you epilate a lower section, press the wrung-out washcloth to the area - it feels really good and will help with the "trauma" to your skin. Make sure skin is dry and taut - loose skin makes epilating more painful as well as you run the risk of catching the thing on your skin - OUCH. You can also try taking ibuprofen about a half-hour before epilating - that may help, too. Make sure you read the manual as well - they usually have tips to make it as pain-free as possible - like moving the epi in the direction of hair growth, stuff like that. I LOVE my Braun and will never go back to shaving - I love the "no stubble" feel that lasts for days.

Is waxing a good option for hair removal at home?

Waxing is a very effective and not overly expensive way to do your own hair removal at home. It leaves a much smoother skin effect than shaving because it pulls the hair out at the root ie from under the layer of the skin, unlike shaving that just chops the hair at skin level.

I dont have one

Grilling can be great! It makes for incredible meat and veggies if you do grill. Tender meats, delicious rubs. I'd suggest starting when you have the time. Less fat than frying.
