Egypt may be up
in arms
over the latest stroke of Chinese manufacturing brilliance—a
synthetic hymen
currently sold by a Chinese company called Gigimo, the product promises to give
women back their first time for a cool
$29.90

“bandits”
and charging that the device will corrode the moral standards of the
country. 
The BBC calls it a
cheap and easy alternative
to hymen repair surgery. When inserted into the
vagina, the device expands to fit the wearer, providing resistance and a small
squirt of blood-like substance when punctured. In places where honor killings are
practiced against women who can’t prove they were virgins on their wedding
nights, this little, seemingly innocuous sex toy has opened quite a can
of worms
