So the virginity test is still performed by many in India on a couple’s first night. The test is performed on women only! Modern India hey. Well, now a new product is letting people fake the results of the virginity test and it is available on Amazon India. The product is called ‘I-Virgin, Blood for the First Night’
The idea of the ‘I-Virgin, Blood for the First Night’ is as follows: The female takes the pills, which then produce blood when intercourse takes place, thus making it look like the bride is a virgin! OMG!!!!!
The bridegroom will go inside with a white bedsheet and he has to come out with a red bloodstain on it. People outside are sitting, waiting, and they will ask him if the ‘product’ was good or not good.
The “product” is her, the bride.
And if she doesn’t bleed on her wedding night, she can be subjected to beatings and communal humiliation even a divorce. Wedding night virginity testing is practised by the Kanjarbhat ethnic group of India at the behest of tribal elders.
Members of a caste council — all-male, unelected — oversee the ritual and mete out repercussions if the bride “fails” the test.
Refusing to participate can make you an outcast among your own friends and family.
The product, ‘I-Virgin, Blood for the First Night’, a virginity pill capsules, claims to have the following benefits-
The high-quality blood powder
Fake Blood for the First Night
No side effects. No needles
Not toxic. No anaesthesia
No surgery! Easy, fast, safe & convenient
Amazon is facing backlash for allowing such a product, that supports the misogynistic idea of virginity, where the hymen is associated with purity, to be sold on its platform.
