Wow, that’s absolutely horrible. As though there weren’t already enough misinformation and pain around sex for women! Do you know if this practice is changing at all or going out of style? I was just reading that this practice is partly to make the vagina seem “tighter” and thus more virginal. We have these same stigmas in the US but they aren’t embodied in the same way of course. I hope that more education makes this practice more scarce.
