There’s nothing like getting all fired up on what should be a peaceful Sunday morning – but if anything’s gonna do it, its an article on virginity. But this isn’t any virginity…oh no…this is a new and easily distributed way to reclaim your virginity. Virginity in a box – seemingly a well received, miracle “cure” particularly to some parts of the world. Apparently first conceived (sorry, I just had to) in Japan, this little eliminator of any traces of premarital sex (aside from pregnancy and gonorrhea) called an artificial hymen, is basically a small disk that when inserted in just the right place, becomes moist and creates tightness. As a bonus, when it is broken, it excretes a tiny amount of fake blood. WOW! Its a Godsend! (literally) And now (surprise, surprise) the Chinese have been seduced by the technology and are now mass producing it, as only the Chinese can.
All of a sudden the chastity belt and the mentality behind it, is not looking so “old fashioned”. We, globally, have still not shed this idea that sexual behavior is bad. What I can’t understand is why? Well, maybe I do. Its mostly about control – control of women in particular. I mean, according to this archaic line of thinking, and yes I’ll be a little crude, men can go around sticking their you-know-whats in anything that moves, but girls…oh no…they must “save” themselves for these very same guys.
Oh believe me, I understand, fully, that this little “device” will likely save quite a few lives. That’s the irony here. So instead of combating the screwed up moral code that suggests lack of virginity brings about dishonour, women have been driven to find ways to mask any “previous to marriage” sexual activities. God forbid they have any experience to bring to their marital bedchambers to enhance their enjoyment. (oh yes, that’s right it was god who was quoted as forbidding it)
I think if we spent a little more time on responsible sexual behavior and reproduction and a little less time on worrying about the so called “virtues” of virginity, we’d start to eliminate a lot of problems – both psychological, and disease related. And as an added bonus there might be more people having fun – that’s right people…FUN… in bed (or wherever). But until we get to that point, I think the Chinese are going to make a fortune!
