Egypt Conservatives Call For Ban Of ‘Virginity Kit’

October 6, 2009

Egypt (ChattahBox) – A kit produced in China that simulates the breaking of a hymen has caused controversy after conservative leaders claimed it broke Islamic laws.

The device has a small pouch of blood that is punctured by the penis at the time of intercourse, and simulated the breaking of the hymen, reports say.

The website claims “No more worry about losing your virginity. With this product, you can have your first night back anytime.”

While many have said it is a strong social statement against hypocrites who state that women must remain pure while male sexual relations are ignored, Sheik Sayed Aska, member of the Muslim Brotherhood, said that it ‘encourages illicit sexual relations. Islamic culture forbids these relations except within the confines of marriage.’

The kit is significantly more simple and less expensive that hymen reconstructive surgery, which is commonly performed at secret clinics in the Middle East, where honor killings are more frequent than many would expect.
