Anyone know where I can get my hymen stitched back???::catgroom::
Tunisia is becoming big in the cosmetic tourism. It's good and bad. Good because it brings revenue to Tunisia. Bad because it means that prices for the procedures will go up as popularity increases.Actually on a serious note, like Tbelle said it's a popular procedure, but also there are several hotels that cater to tourists/foreigners who are having cosmetic procedures done. My friend was thinking about doing it and was asking me a bazillion questions. She wanted to get lipo (on what I don't know cuz she has no body fat ) and something to her face. I think that Hotel Africa in Tunis where I usually stay was on the list. They will set up transport to and from the facility and also take care of you while you're in bed up to 8 weeks depending on what you had done. They'll come to your room, do medications, and check on you, bring food, etc.
I want some lipo lol
What if I need a lot of it? :rofl: Double the price?Tunisia is becoming big in the cosmetic tourism. It's good and bad. Good because it brings revenue to Tunisia. Bad because it means that prices for the procedures will go up as popularity increases.
In 2005 lipo only cost 1,500TND
I hate to classify all the women as the same, because they're not. But a lot of women do it because they want to go out and have "fun" yet still want their future husband to think they are a "good girl". There are even women who act completely innocent with their fiances/future husbands, and have their boyfriend on the side who they sleep around with.:Hmm:Going back to the original topic. What the heck is the point of this surgery??? To me a virgin is somebody who has not had penetrative sex.
They do have education in school, so I would say that the educated ones know better than to look for blood or pain. But I'm sure that there are still men who associate blood and/or pain with virginity even though it is completely false.If this surgery is popular among Tunisian women (and women of other cultures who are expected to remain chaste before marriage) - does this mean that the men are looking for blood/pain as confirmation that their partner was a virgin?
It used to be custom that after a marriage the marital sheets would be put on display (hung off the balcony or somewhere) to show the woman was a virgin. This was a LONG time ago though. However, having said that, I'm sure in some small villages that it still happens.Does the mother-in-law/woman next door etc. inspect the marital bedsheets ??
I think that may have been the case years ago, but now it is unlikely that a man would assume that.And, more importantly, if a woman who has never before had penetrative sex, sleeps with her husband for the first time and doesn't bleed/experience obvious discomfort or pain, does her husband assume she has lied to him????
It's not just among Tunisians. Actually, Tunisians are more educated (according to some studies) than other Arab countries. In fact, Tunisia was the first Arab country to provide family planning and education for women, the first to allow abortions on demand, and the first to make contraception openly and widely available.I find the apparent lack of understanding of sex and sexual issues among young Tunisians quite alarming (though not exactly surprising) - not least the sperm production in the knee issue??? What exactly do they teach in human biology lessons???
They do teach them, although how graphic and in-depth I do not know.What exactly do they teach in human biology lessons???
Some of them have some truth to them, but of course not all.My experience is that a lot of what we call 'old wives' tales' (don't know how that translates in America) exist in Tunisia. Some things I find incredibly frustrating when said to me with so much conviction e.g. when the baby isn't wearing socks that it'll cause her to have wind/gas????? That if a woman craves something in pregnancy and is denied it (or denies herself of it) the baby will be born with a birthmark in the shape of that which she craved???? I could go on forever........ Initially I used to enter into discussion about it, now I just shut up lol It's not worth it
