No? Well, allow us to enlighten you on the most ridiculous thing we have ever hear.
Across the pond, sources are reporting that an alarming number of women are signing up for controversial "virginity repair" operations before they get married. According to reports, thousands upon thousands of woman are paying big $$$ to have the surgery that will fool their husbands into thinking they are virgins on their wedding night.
The "virgin repair" procedure is technically called a hymenoplasty. It involves the hymen being stitched or reconstructed so that it will tear and bleed again on the woman's wedding night. In the last five years, 116 hymen repair operations have been undertaken!
WTF!!! Ladies, it is 2010! Who cares??? Your vajayjay is your business!
According to the source, not only are women actively seeking out this procedure, but many of them are having them done under NHS. (Think our Medicare.) So taxpayers are paying for women to hide the fact that they've gotten busy with other people besides their hubbys!
Sources point out the the majority of women who are looking to preserve the illusion are Muslim and some even take the charade a step further by buying chastity certificates to "prove" that they are virgins. One doctor explains:
"The majority of our clients are Muslim women. They worry about having had sex and their fiance and family knowing that they have been touched before. It is more cultural rather religious. If the bride is not a virgin and does not bleed on the wedding night, it is a big shame on the family. The woman fears that the husband will walk out, divorce or humiliate her all her life. There have been honour killings in extreme cases."
OMG! How awful!
We can imagine putting your body through such an ordeal just for the sake of some archaic belief system. These poor women!
