Default Human Disguise

Have you ever wondered why people are always disguising themselves? We don't like the way that we smell, so we bathe, use deodorant, use perfume. We are constantly shaving off our bodily hair, or put it in other arrangements, such as goatees and mustaches. We go to the barber, or the hair dresser to change our coifs. We change our clothing often, using different patterns, colors and arrangements. We use makeup to change how our faces look. We paint our fingernails and toenails. On the extreme end, we have plastic surgery performed, at some risk to our health, to further change our appearances. I can't think of any other creature that goes to such great lengths to disguise themselves.

Along this line, I've heard a woman will ware a wig, make up, false eyelashes, lip stick, padded bra, hip pads, and high heel shoes to look taller and make her shaved legs look better....

But she wants a "real man"......

But not unless he has, no chest, arm, back, leg hair... Full head of hair... Six pack abbes... And looks good in a tux...

What gives...
Always fresh.

IMHO, one word, in the context applicable.....Vanity.

Or...false advertisement.

Lol I like the way I smell....naturally, looking for a real woman, whose natural scent drives me insane.
