The Tunisian women who want to be virgins again

In Tunisia, young women are expected to be virgins when they marry, leading to a growing trade in hymen reconstruction surgery.

Yasmine (not her real name) looks nervous. She’s biting her nails and checks her mobile phone constantly.

“I consider this to be deception and I’m really worried,” she says.

  • Sexual amnesia in Tunisia – Its a good thing for Zsa Zsa that we don’t feel that way in the west! With nine marriages she would have taken more stitches than my old Rawlings Marty Marion autographed model baseball glove!

    There’s non-surgical kits available with fake blood capsule.

    What about the goats? Does nobody care about them?

      Isn’t that the truth.
      If there are no virgin women left, there is always the goat pen. Their fidelity does not matter.
      At least not till the end of ram-a-ram.

    So Tunisian husbands are boring into their wives twats with magnifying glasses… and that’s on the honeymoon.

    I used to know someone who spent tine in Cairo, Egypt. They said that about 20 years, or more, ago “weddings” were very public and a big deal.

    The morning after the wedding, it was common practice for a new husband to go on to the balcony and wave a red stained sheet. The red stuff was supposed to be blood from the “virgin” wife. They also said that most of the red stuff looked like ketchup (aka catsup) and probably was.

    The Mo’s sure are obsessed with that area of the female anatomy – they’re either cutting parts of it off or sewing parts back on.

      That’s because they’re – au fond – really insecure beta or gamma males. Real men go for real women as partners in life. And real women are strong women, not whiny, misandric feminists.
