Seriously?

I just came across an article about this and decided to share it. i know its a bit uncouth, but holy crap. Seriously? I am trying to figure out who exactly this thing is marketed to.  Born again virgins? Christians who feel guilty? fetishists? I am completely at a lose.

from the site:

No more worry about losing your virginity. With this product, you can have your first night back anytime. Insert this artificial hymen into your vagina carefully. It will expand a little and make you feel tight. When your lover penetrate, it will ooze out a liquid that look like blood not too much but just the right amount. Add in a few moans and groans, you will pass through undetectable.

I think the concept of this thing bothers me so much because of the idea that it markets. Reclaiming your virginity? Blah, i don’t know, are we really to that point in our society where we are so desperate to appear “pure” or “undetectable” to others. whats wrong with just being yourself and that being ok. Does God love you less if your hymen is broken? Will a inflatable insert that oozes a little blood colored goo fool that guy who you are “loosing your virginity” to? does he care if your hymen is in tact? so many question.

The only thing i can think of that might make any since at all, and that’s not saying much, and please know, i mean absolutely no offense here, is maybe rape victims who lost their virginity in the act and want to “reclaim” it. but then again, most girls i know lost it long before they became sexually active.

All in all, i think people should be ok with them self. you don’t need a fake hymen to be loved or have good sex or for your partner to think your good enough.

and i’m not even gonna get in to that last line about passing undetected. The idea that women might feel the need to pretend to be virgins to sleep with dudes who only sleep with virgins just pisses me off.

    Perhaps its marketed to those who cannot afford a hymenoplasty, a restoration of the hymen. A times article reported on the increasing number of Muslim women in Europe who choose this surgery as a way to increase their chance of marrying and obtaining a “better life”.

    the mere existence of these products just reflect the demand for them…its unfortunate.
    anyways, great thoughts.

    This is pretty crazy, but it has the potential to save lives. Unfortunately it will probably never get to the women that really need it. We are so privileged to live in a country where a women doesn’t have to fear for her life if shes found to be not a virgin on her wedding night…Not, to mention if shes raped. A women in Saudi Arabia was just found guilty of adultury after being gang raped. She was caught trying to end the pregnancy that resulted. They sentenced her to a year and prison and a hundred lashings for her “crimes.”

    Sorry to be a downer…but still….

    ….it is kind of ridiculous in the context of western society..

    thanks for that Jamie. I’m glad to hear some rational use for this product. it’s prettyawful that it would need to exist within that context and sad that it wont get to those women. but i’m not sure it would help in those contexts either. it seems that this product is basically just a little bag that inflates and you rupture and let the go fall out. but still, maybe there is hope for these women? or maybe the govt there needs to be overthrown by a army of se positive women who are fed up? yes, that would be ok in my book.
