Venus. There are a number of Venuses. Earth’s twin planet is named Venus.
« In Roman mythology, Venus was the goddess of love, sex, beauty, and fertility. She was the Roman counterpart to the Greek Aphrodite. However, Roman Venus had many abilities beyond the Greek Aphrodite; she was a goddess of victory, fertility, and even prostitution. »
There is also Venus Williams of the famous Williams sisters, who is a famous tennis player.
You know, in this day and age there are so many surgeries getting done to enhance parts of the body for different reasons. However, it seems to me that most surgeries are done to improve one’s image somehow. It wasn’t too many years ago when plastic surgery for physical enhancement was only affordable by the very wealthy.
Nowadays, certain types of plastic surgery can be covered by certain insurance agencies. Most with limited coverage. Still, most surgeries, period are not even possible for the poor to afford. Even with employment.
Today, we are going to talk about surgical body enhancement, natural beauty attributes, and take a trip down memory lane to beauty trends of the present, and the past.
These beauty trends deal with the human body. Beauty and fashion trends change throughout time. It is also brought back every now and then.
There is a saying, « Nothing is new under the sun. »-anonymous.
In some ways this is true. What is beauty? Beauty is « in the eyes of the beholder. »-anonymous.

Centuries ago, such surgeries did not exist. In fact, it was not that long ago when big lips, butts, breasts, etc.,were considered « rare(sometimes other cultures were dubbed having a little more than), unattractive, and downright freakish: something totally foreign and unheard of « .
Years ago, oftentimes when one possessed such looks, they were paraded around the world in groups that worked in circuses and for individuals who paraded them in multiple places as « freaks ».
Note: for the life of me, I cannot find my Pinterest pin where it has an article where a black man was taxidermied and put on display in a museum in the United States of America years ago.
Some of today’s most popular celebrities on television include family members who are popular on their own reality T.V. show. One such family are the Kardashians. Some of the females in the Kardashian family are known not only for their beauty, they are known to spark a little controversy and admiration with media and fans concerning racy photos.
There used to be a time where racy photos that showed curves and showed some skin used to be only glorified in porn magazines and by men who appreciated big boobs, hips, etc.
As far as controversial pictorial go, Kim Kardashian leads the pack with the picture that was done in 1976 with a model of color, who may not have received half the attention that Kim may have gotten with the same pose.
Why is this picture considered controversial? Look at the ad and comments such as these:
Jean-Paul Goode « Carolina Beaumont, New York, 1976 »
Times really have changed. In some ways they have changed for the better. Also, it wasn’t that long ago when it seemed that only runway models with stick figure bodies, silver dollar flap Jack type tits, and washboard flat asses were considered beautiful.
It also seemed like those who were underweight with unrealistic body proportions were considered beautiful, normal, and acceptable to many.
At the same time, these unrealistic standards were and have been difficult and dangerous to achieve by many. Sometimes the results were flat out fatal.
Next, I am going to talk about beauty trends that popular and considered « beautiful » or great for a woman to have. I put buttocks implants at the top of the list. Now that it is super, super popular to have a huge « cake »(derriere, booty, etc.),even teens have talked about having big derrieres.
In fact, I was shocked to find this out by hearing this from some teens in my very own family members! Anyway, shockingly both men and women get butt implants. This includes men who may not decide to cross dress.
Some get just enough(implants)to make the butt more full. Or, that person may get a Brazilian butt lift.
Then, some overdo it.😨😰☹
Now, there was a time when one lady rocked her « cake » naturally. However, having possessed such an attribute caused a fatal outcome. She has been called many names. She is known as « the black Venus », « Venus Hottentot », « The Hottentot Venus », « The Hottentot Apron », and more.
Ladies and gentlemen. Let me introduce you to Sara Baartman: Venus(to be continued)…….
