Science Marches On

Surgery to create an artificial hymen and “restore” virginity has been around for a while now and is particularly popular in Japan. Now the Japanese have devised an even cheaper alternative: A $14.99 gadget which is inserted about 20 minutes before intercourse. It expands to create a “tight feeling” and releases a blood-like fluid.

Traditional religious sorts are extremely displeased with this idea and Egypt is considering the death penalty for anyone caught importing the product.

I sort of love that scientific advances–even silly ones like this–are slowly prying loose the stranglehold that fundamentalist religion has on human thought. Also the thought of an Egyptian hymen cartel makes me giggle.
