Most guys are aware that a lot of women deceive with regards to their looks. Makeup is a given. Some women you don’t even recognize without their makeup on. If you lack experience in that regard, at the very least watch a few YouTube tutorials for girls on various techniques, like temporary lip enlargement or contouring. Of course, cosmetic surgery is not as rare as you may think either. After all, only a comparatively small number of women undergoing cosmetic surgery goes all out, opting for the plastic look.
There are also plenty of guys who aren’t quite so honest. Yet, instead of cosmetic surgery, there are other ways to give your looks a boost. I was reminded of this because of a guy in my local gym: very muscular, low body fat. He has slightly more body fat than the guy from KinoBody, but bigger muscles too. On his Facebook page, you can witness a rather drastic transformation, from being rather skinny, almost unhealthy looking, to bulking up a lot over six to eight months. At the end of his bulking phase, he took a picture of himself, half-naked, stating that finally, after dicking around in the gym for years without making much progress, he found a program that worked for him. He should have said that he had found a “cycle” that worked. That his gains were bullshit became obvious when, for whatever reason, he stopped going to the gym (and juicing), and quickly reverted to his old scrawny self. When using steroids, muscles grow a lot faster and bigger, but they also disappear a lot faster.
This was just an extreme case. Yet, there are also people who are a bit less obvious. Just like a girl who is getting small breast implants to make herself more attractive, but not giving her the porn star look that would hinder her professional career, there are guys who juice to give themselves just a little edge. I suspect that plenty of supposedly natural body builders and YouTube personalities are in that group. Thus, things are not always what they seem. That is not to say that you can’t pack on muscle without taking steroids. Instead, the point is that your competitiveness would be severely misguided if you think you can keep up with guys who take steroids, just like little 12 year-old Susie would be misguided if she thought that her lips will one day be naturally as big as her 16 year-old sister’s who is using a lip plumper.
