People engage in a variety of sex practices, ranging from activities done alone to acts with another person in varying patterns of frequency, for a wide variety of reasons. Sometimes, things get pretty crazy because of the traditional superstitions which inspire or force humans to indulge in unnecessary practices.
Some of the weirdest ‘sex rituals’ or sex practices still exist in our world that we are not aware of being in a civilized society. These sex practices will blow your mind and make you think – why the hell do they need to do this.
1. Drinking Semen:
The Sambian Tribe of Eastern Highlands, New Guinea, separates their boys from the girls at the age of 7 to 10 years. During this period, they undergo piercings, nose bleeds and has to drink the semen of the tribe’s mightiest warriors.
2. Armpit-flavored Apples:
In rural Austria, young women do a ritual dance with apple slices stuffed in their armpits. After the dance, each gives a slice to the man of her choice. He then eats it have sex with her.
3. No Ejaculation at all:
In ancient China, people into Taoism believes that men have a lot of vital energy in the form of sperms, and losing them can cause illness or death. As a result, Chinese men would have sex but not to ejaculate which was very difficult for them.
4. Missionary, the least sinful position:
Some churches decided that missionary was the only position couples could do sex without being sinful. They couldn’t do sex in any other position because this would mess with traditional male/ female roles and also. If caught, they sentence them to three years penance!
5. Brother to share one woman:
Some Nepali tribes in the Himalayas practice polyandry. All the brothers share one woman to avoid too many children, and to prevent their small farmland from being divided amongst them.
6. Lucky Sex:
People in Indonesia celebrate a holiday, Pon, where they travel to a sacred mountain, Java, to perform a ceremony for good fortune. The ritual is performed by having sex with someone other than the husband or wife. Since this festival comes about seven times a year, a person has to have sex with the same partner every time to bring them some good luck.
Female circumcision, in which people remove girl’s external genitalia by using a razor blade, is followed in 27 African countries, some parts of Asia, and the Middle East. It is to prevent a girl from feeling pleasure during sex, and also, so that the woman does not cheat on her husband after marriage.
8. Sex with Underclothes On
Inis Beag, a small island off the coast of Ireland, is among the most naïve and sexually repressive societies in the world. The islands abhor nudity, with adults washing only the parts of the body that extend beyond their clothing. Even marital partners keep underclothes on during the sexual activity.
Hence, previous generations might think that our sex habits are very unconventional and bizarre, but believe me, the sex practices we have talked about are way weirder!
