"Bonobo", actually. And Hobbes was actually a good choice of philosopher, it always bothers me when people throw out a few as examples that they clearly haven't read and just think of as "brainy".
But you're still dumb. If I want to wear that overpriced Diet Butcher Slim Skin dress/sweatshirt/thing on Blackbird, it's not to help me get laid, at any level of abstraction. The reasons for our dressing ourselves - or creating any art at all, really, or engaging in high-level craftsmanship or science - are incredibly complex, and it's both reductive and incorrect to act like Einstein devoted his spare time to relativity and Brownian motion so he could get laid.
