Do you know why babies are so adorable? They need beauty to survive! Babies cannot live without an adult’s support, and therefore need an adult’s love to ensure their support. This is perhaps the easiest and most obvious way to show that beauty is for survival and not just for fun only.
How about in the business world? Sure, its not politically correct to say that you hire someone based on their looks, but it’s almost always the first impression that sticks in your head and someone who is more attractive will always be more memorable.
How about money? Beautiful women tend to have a higher tbm salary and better chances for a promotion. Handsome men — not as much as beautiful women, but it still has its benefits.
Of course beauty is a big advantage in a bedroom for love. Want to know the secret of how men and women are choosing their beloved ones?
10236 Charing Cross Road, Los Angeles, California. A 50 million dollar Gothic – Tudor style house, built by architect Arthur R. Kelly in 1927, with a secret room, called the “Elvis Presley” suite. This room is famous not for its art collection or furniture, paintings or sculptures. This suite is special because when Elvis Presley stayed there, he spent a night with at least 8 women. Now the house is occupied with an aging Hugh Hefner, the Playboy boss, who is still surrounded by young beautiful girls. They are much younger than Mr. Hefner, but they are still enjoying his company. Why?
This now well-known fact remained a mystery for many years. Until 1999, when Harvard scientist Frank Marlowe came up with the unusual explanation of this behavior. According to him a woman can chose an extraordinary man, much older then she is, because even an aging men are fertile. Because with their experience and tools, they can compete with much younger males. The benefit is: young males have very tough competition, and women have much more choices.
What about the way men look? Does it matter for women? Sure it does. To find the truth scientists decided to find out if it is a masculine type of man, or feminine type, that women find more attractive. What they did not know was: both, but not at the same time.
When women are in fertile part of their cycle, they prefer masculine looking men. When they are in infertile part of their cycle — feminine looking. Does it mean, that it is really women, not men, who choose? Or does it mean that infidelity is the inherent women’s feature, because they need different men at different times of their cycle?
Men chose women differently: they want fertile women. In other words — young. But how do they determine?
Full breasts, low waste to hip ratio, long legs, symmetric face, big eyes, small nose, body mass index — all play their roles. But remember: they pick up young females! Therefore how do they decide? By “signals of youth” which are: clear and smooth skin, big and shiny eyes, full red lips, long fair hair and firm high breasts.
Marilyn Monroe, is perhaps the most famous example of this. But is this for only movie stars? What about ordinary women?
It is about 1350 BC. Ancient Egypt. The young Queen Nefertiti is about to pose for a famous sculptor Thutmose, who is going to make her bust. Suddenly Nefertiti notices that her eye liner is not perfect. To fix it she takes eyeliner and applies it to her eyes.
Now she looks perfect. That is how we know her — from famous Nefertiti bust.
But she was not the one who used cosmetics to enhance her beauty. Cosmetics were cheap, readily available for ordinary people and easy to use. But the problem with cosmetics was: it was sometimes toxic. To get the desired effect they may put in Parabens, sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) and other toxins. And cosmetics cannot do that much to cover deep wrinkles and skin folds, lift up the sagging skin or change the shape of the nose. That is why they came up with plastic cosmetic surgery.
When do you think first plastic surgery was performed? 100 years ago? 200?
According to legend, the first plastic surgery was done by Lord Shiva in India 4000 years ago, when he attached an elephant’s head to his son’s body 5. The first medical manual, including plastic surgery description, was written by great Indian doctor Sushruta in the 3rd or 4th century AD. Even then they knew how to make skin graft to cover damaged skin areas. Since then plastic cosmetic surgery improved significantly. Plastic surgeons now can do a facelift for you, reshape your nose, eyelids, checks, chin, breasts, buttock, tummy, penis, vagina, etc. About 12 million cosmetic surgeries were done in the US in 2008. This means, that it is very popular because it is very effective.
