I don’t like the fact that my own perception of myself is becoming so heavily influenced by the ideals of those around me. Never before have I felt like I am obligated to shave my legs. It’s winter, for a start, and I’m sad to say that even prior to this I’ve used being single as a reason, which isn’t too healthy an outlook. You read about people having all of these distorted outlooks on life on the internet and in the media and content yourself with the fact that at least the people you know aren’t like that, and then it turns out they are and you’ve been friends with them all along. Since everyone around me is so utterly enraptured with the concept of virginity, I’ve been making observations based on their self-reports.
For male specimens my age, body size is not a factor in coitus. However it is a very different story for females. The girls my age who have had intercourse are very petite and slim and you can find their lookalikes on pseudoreality television shows in which everyone is stereotypically attractive. Flat stomachs and veritable thigh gaps appearp mandatory in order to be involved in a committed phsyical relationship.
That said, it should also be noticed that those males who hold the view that size, weight and body hair are critical factors in relationships find themselves experiencing inexclusivity on their partner’s side. Therefore, I propose the following: males who posess the previous standards lack the qualities necessary in order to maintain committed relationships as a result.
Luckily my observations have been carried out on a small demographic of <200 young people aged 16-20
