Women have face-lifts in a society in which women without them appear to vanish from sight.

God hath given you one face, and you make yourselves another.
Isn't that the problem? That women have been swindled for centuries into substituting adornment for love, fashion (as it were) for passion?

They were prepared with hormones or placentas or royal jelly. All the juice and joy missing in the lives of these women were to be supplied by the contents of jars and bottles. No wonder they would spend twenty dollars for an ounce of face makeup or thirty for a half-ounce of hormone cream. What price bliss? What price sexual ecstasy?
