Throughout history, concepts of body and sex have had a significant impact. From ancient idealization of the harmonious, athletic body to the 1960s "liberated" body and gender perceptions to the more recent depreciation of the "natural" body in favour of the "modified" eternally young body.
In the wake of the development of the concept of the body, and that many have come to realize that society not only shapes personality and behaviour, it also shapes the way in which the body appears, there have also been changes to the perception of gender.
