Indeed following the Torah would create a very problematic and arguably immoral lifestyle. And for many more reasons than this.

Genesis 16:1-4
  Now Sarai Abram’s wife bare him no children: and she had an handmaid, an Egyptian, whose name was Hagar. And Sarai said unto Abram, Behold now, the LORD hath restrained me from bearing: I pray thee, go in unto my maid; it may be that I may obtain children by her. And Abram hearkened to the voice of Sarai. And Sarai ... gave her to her husband Abram to be his wife. And he went in unto Hagar, and she conceived.

“Most of the Israelites did not come from outside Canaan - they emerged from within it. There was no mass Exodus from Egypt…no violent conquest of Canaan. The early Israelites were - irony of ironies - themselves originally Canaanites!

The conquest of Canaan by Joshua could not have happened [as] described in the Bible. Most of the towns…either weren’t inhabited, didn’t exist or were conquered at wildly different times.” —Finkelstein and Silberman

Yes, pursue the young and innocent in the justified name of God.  Religious power begets pediphiles. No need to worry,  God will forgive you just the same. And if you have a good attorney so will the American public.

(Andrew):  No, no!

Apparently, men claim it makes for a more sensual experience and without the hair, everything down there looks bigger.

So much for the VELCRO EFFECT in love-making.
