Many girls having ‘virgin’ surgery

Posted by jtsmyth8 on June 10, 2008

“The girls don’t come alone (for the consultation and surgery). They come with their boyfriends or a trusted girlfriend,” says a consultant plastic surgeon with a notable private hospital in Kuala Lumpur.

A lot can happen when youths leave home to study abroad and sexual exploration is invariably on the top of the list.

“And when these girls come here — either with their boyfriends or they befriend local guys — some of them engage in penetrative sexual acts,” says the surgeon.

But despite the freedom they enjoy here, the day eventually comes when they have to go home to their parents, get married and settle down.

And some of these girls come from communities that for various cultural and religious reasons, still require a girl to be a virgin.

“To them, having the hymen intact is not just an important marriage commodity — their very lives depend on it,” says the surgeon. (story)
