Feasting on Insecurity

I often think that certain patterns of sexual attraction and excitement are socially conditioned and somewhat rehearsed. I’m not talking about sexual orientations, but more about the superficial features of the other person. For example, the thing with hairy legs and armpits on women. Do you think people before the time of the razor cared about women having hairy legs or armpits? I doubt it. I feel that much of our beliefs surrounding this is something we have been socially trained and conditioned to believe, not something that is natural to us.
