A little pain apparently feels good, says one of them, while others, that is simply worth it, because you become taller, stronger and more confident.

What is human body? Why some parts of ours bodies we consider to be attractive and some we are ashamed of? What does the perception of our own bodies depends on and whom our bodies belong to?
