A rather strange obsession with beauty

A little teaser to preempt tomorrow's column about the backlash of feminism: something from Maureen Dowd's Are Men Necessary: When Sexes Collide about the extremes that women today are going to look beautiful and/or titillate men...

"Several years ago, INAMED Aesthetics in Santa Barbara took the foreskin of one infant boy - the son of the original manufacturer - and replicated it into a supply of CosmoPlast and CosmoDerm that plumps lips for women all over the world ad infinitum. A bris to remember. This represent some sort of strange symmetry: Women inject their lips with baby boy foreskin to titillate adult male foreskin."

Haha. Time to reconsider what we're slathering onto our most precious assets.
