Great beauty is often a curse

Marianne Faithfull ’s confession this week that she had to dose herself up with drink and drugs to have sex will have come as a huge shock to the countless men who adored her.

After all, she was the poster girl for free love, the epitome of cool in her floppy hats and furs. If she wasn’t enjoying herself, then who on earth was?

The answer is simple: men.

The blokes, from Mick Jagger to Keith Richards and all the rest in between, who woke up one day in the Sixties to discover that a combination of the Pill and the new permissiveness had done away with the need for boring old-fashioned stuff such as respect, love and responsibility; that now young, naive girls like Faithfull had no excuse whatsoever for not jumping into bed with them.

Not, that is, unless they wanted to be branded as frigid or hopelessly uncool.

As Faithfull put it: ‘I had to pretend that everything was so wonderful, wild and sexual. But it really wasn’t.’

But she had another disadvantage, too: her beauty.

Great beauty, it is generally assumed, is a great blessing. In reality, it is almost always a terrible burden.

If a woman has beauty, especially at a very young age, it can come to define her.

However clever, kind and talented she may otherwise be, the fact that men desire her and women envy her will always throw a spanner in the works. Faithfull was truly stunning.

And in an era of free love, she would have attracted an almost intolerable level of male attention, some of it welcome, much of it not.

No surprise that the poor girl hated sex: she must have come to associate it with a sort of abuse.

Little wonder then that she threw her beauty away, ruining her looks through drug abuse and only finding peace in her 50s.

That she has come through it all is testament to the one thing that endures long after looks have faded: character.

It has become fashionable among women to blame everything on men for their misfortunes, be it beauty, sex or lack of it, infidelity, marriage, salaries or even corporate positions. When will women learn to take their own responsibilities. You ask for equal rights and at the same time demand to be treated like a ladies. Makeup your mind Women!

If given the choice between beauty and brains, girls would choose beauty any day of the week. Smart girls are usually buttt ugly.

P.S. Female PDF members are very pretty. :D

:rofl: :rofl:

too much attention can be a very bad thing!
It differs from person to person, some like attention some dont like.. too much attention is bad of course. Most girls love male attention and are jealous of those who get more than them.

The way she is wearing the make-up in her second pic it seems she always has wanted to cash on her beauty and she didn't learn anything.

burqa gives you too much peace and too little sunlight... :angel:
ontopic: where is the 'great' beauty.. lolz
It's not really about covering as much as it is about changing one's outlook on life.
