Breast Enhancement, Ancient Greek Style

To improve on nature seems to be a common wish, especially when it comes to matters of breast enhancement. There are the bust-enhancing cremes (do cremes work better than creams?), tissue, bra inserts, and (as a final resort) breast implants. Currently this is the most common form of cosmetic surgery.

Apparently this was a desire back in ancient Greece also. Hippocrates, the Father of Medicine, proposed singing as a means for the damsels of ancient Greece to enhance their assets! Now this should be looked into as a non-invasive technique.  After all, he comes highly recommended by history! Remember: The ancient Greek plays had those Greek choruses! Maybe they were so popular for that reason! Even when they imitated the singing of the frogs in Aristophanes' play by that title. Maybe when Agammemnon or Oedipus met their demises the audience could at least go out smiling by what is happening to the chorus.

On the other hand, were there many chorus boys?  Did this cause an upsurge of Hellenic moobs? 

Singing lessons, anyone?  Should I join the choir?  Maybe that's why being in the choir is popular in some churches!  Some more immediate, temporal rewards follow.

No post-op recovery to deal with, even with the meds.

Nice cartoon girl, but why is she packing?

Natural breasts are a gift from God. Adding to them with silicon or saline is entirely phony and artificial. It would not be bad, though, if they were solely for husband's viewing, but women with breast enlargements tend to display their false ones so provocatively. And not all are strippers, either.

Just an exibit of bad taste.

If you want a girl with big tits, get a voice major.

This was not mentioned in my Greek Civilization class! That would have awakened me.

Gives a whole new twist to the term, "The Classics," doesn't it?
