Um...What?

This is one of those stories that makes you laugh and shake your head at the same time. It's on Muslim women in Europe "reclaiming" their virginity. How does it work? Well...
PARIS — The operation in the private clinic off the Champs-Élysées involved one semicircular cut, 10 dissolving stitches and a discounted fee of $2,900.

But for the patient, a 23-year-old French student of Moroccan descent from Montpellier, the 30-minute procedure represented the key to a new life: the illusion of virginity.

Like an increasing number of Muslim women in Europe, she had a hymenoplasty, a restoration of her hymen, the vaginal membrane that normally breaks in the first act of intercourse.

Actually, my favorite part of the story is this tidbit:

The issue has been particularly charged in France, where a renewed and fierce debate has occurred about a prejudice that was supposed to have been buried with the country’s sexual revolution 40 years ago: the importance of a woman’s virginity.

The furor followed the revelation two weeks ago that a court in Lille, in northern France, had annulled the 2006 marriage of two French Muslims because the groom found his bride was not the virgin she had claimed to be.

The domestic drama has gripped France. The groom, an unidentified engineer in his 30s, left the nuptial bed and announced to the still partying wedding guests that his bride had lied. She was delivered that night to her parents’ doorstep.


In other words, dude was getting it on while his guests still hadn't left. That's horniness, people. Good old fashioned horniness.

This article was an awesome find!

And that 30 something engineer is a king. Imagine the kind of standards he must have (and is able to stick to) when he is horny enough, as you mention, to begin bonking his wife before the guests leave, YET principled enough (about his expectations) to FOREGO said bonking when his standards are not met.

Total stud.

this shit happens all the time in pakistan; which is quite sad given only a small fraction of women have intact hymens by the time they have sex first anyway.

the hymen is so overrated.

Yeah, I was just going to say that many women lose their hymens from activities other than sex, so I really don't see what the big deal here is.

the big deal is that people are dumb as fuck. isn't that the theme (or one of the themes) of your blog? conniving media, thick politicians, lunatic celebrities, etc etc.
