Shocking Trend: Some Women “Dry” Their Privates with Bleach to Increase Pleasure for Men




Some women in Central Africa, South Africa, and Indonesia go through harmful practices to “dry” their vaginas because of a cultural belief that doing so increases the sexual pleasure of men they sleep with.

According to Daily Mail, these women insert materials like sand, chalk, pulverized rock, herbs, sponges, or paper before sexual intercourse. In addition, they douse their privates in bleach, alcohol, detergents, antiseptics. Women in Java, Indonesia are said to “smoke out” their privates, by standing over burning herbs.

In addition to the belief that the practice will give men pleasure, it is also believed that the dryness will make the vagina firmer, as men are thought to reject women whose privates have been “stretched out” due to sex.

However, drying makes intercourse extremely painful for the females, and can lead to cuts, sores and inflammation in the vagina, and increases the likelihood of condoms breaking. This in turn puts the women at a higher risk for contracting HIV.
Speaking on the practice, a South African doctor named Marlene Wa​sserman, says:

“It’s definitely a class issue. Basically, a woman’s reputation depends on the size of her vagina. Among women who are less informed and less educated, there’s an unbelievable ignorance around the idea the vagina adapts to the penis.

There is also an incorrect cultural belief that if a woman has a partner with a large penis, her vagina will remain permanently ‘stretched’ – and future partners will think she is promiscuous.”

    THE WRITER OF THIS ARTICLE MADE A MISTAKE, IT SAID SOUTHERN AFRICA (SADAC) IN THE DAILY MAIL NOT SPECIFICALLY South Africa like you mentioned because we don’t even know anything of this. Please read well next time and stop this thing of always thriving in the bad you think South African women we are. Like Tayo BB Said: Africa we not united.
