  • Why do we like to decorate our home with amputated sex organs?

    Why do we perfume ourselves and our living space with its sexual secretions?

    Is it because we are obsessed with SEX! SEX! SEX!?

    The reality is that what is gore to some (i.e. the plants) is pleasure to our senses.

    Our eyes perceive beauty in the colour, texture and arrangement.

    Our nose detects fragrance that soothes and excites.

    Pleasure is merely our neurons firing electrical impulses that drenches our brain with chemicals that tell us that what we perceive with our senses gives us joy.

    Better living through chemistry, a la DuPont!
