Muslim conservatives in Egypt are calling for a ban on the "Artificial Virginity Hymen Kit," saying it will promote promiscuity. According to a story in the LA Times
, "The kit allows a bride who is not a virgin to pretend that she is. A pouch inserted into the vagina on her wedding night ruptures and leaks a blood-like liquid designed to trick a new husband into believing that his wife is chaste."
Conservative muslim clerics are calling on an official ban from the government. In the meantime, a fatwa has been issued which demands that sellers of the kit be charged with "banditry and punished for spreading immorality and sin."
Sold by a Chinese mail order company called Gigimo, the company is quoted as claiming, "No more worry about losing your virginity. With this product, you can have your first night back any time. Add in a few moans and groans, you will pass through undetectable."
