The real issue: These really do affect your mind. You may do something impulsively and without thinking that you will regret horribly for the rest of your life. Beyond this, it's illegal, it's cheating, it will shrink your testicles (it'll be obvious), and it's generally heart-unhealthy. Most women prefer a natural-looking man who's defined and is a gentleman. It's your choice today but I hope you go 'natural.'
