    Artificial Hymens: $38 for "Virginity Protection"

     
    Virginity protected for $38 at China border

    "Just bring some cash along and you do not have to worry about losing your virginity. This is the message of those selling artificial hymens in Lang Son Province that neighbors China. The sellers say the product, imported from China, has been available in Vietnam for at least four years." ... http://www.thanhniennews.com/print.php?catid=3&newsid=54640

    Oh my...

    I'm a bit confused as to how this all would "work", should I even ask? Wink

    And is it meant to keep you truly "intact" as a woman, or to replace one that has been lost?

    Hehe, I am chucking a little as I write this, but maybe it's no laughing matter when put in cultural perspectives!

    At first I thought it was an aftermarket replacement part but then I thought maybe it was a shield.  Either way it's very weird and twisted.
