LIKE A VIRGIN? THE PAIN AND POLITICS OF RESTITCHING YOUR HYMEN 

 

It’s hard to believe that the hymen, a thin piece of mucosal tissue that partially covers the vaginal opening, has been getting so much airtime recently. It was only a few months ago that rapper T.I. made (unlikely) headlines when he revealed that he takes his 18-year-old daughter to the gynecologist every year to check if her hymen is intact. Earlier this year, the UK health secretary began an investigation into the “dreadful practice” of “virginity repair” surgery, following a report by the Sunday Times, which revealed that there’s at least 22 private clinics across the UK offering hymenoplasty procedures. In short: it’s 2020 and, somehow, men are still trying to control our bodies.

Despite years of research that disproves the myth surrounding the hymen – that it breaks after the first time you’ve had sex – it’s connotations of purity pertain. You can break your hymen horse-riding, or riding a bike, but the social constructs surrounding virginity seem dependent on it staying intact.

“In Muslim communities, women should be virgins when marrying their husbands. If it’s found that a woman has lost her virginity before marriage, the consequences can be dire,” says Halaleh Taheri, who heads the Middle Eastern Women and Society Organisation, which supports women refugees or asylum seekers who have experienced gender discrimination and honour-related violence. “Even if a woman is not directly pressured by her family to undergo it, the beliefs that she has been indoctrinated with since childhood, the shame and dishonour that she will bring to her family if they find out she’s no longer a virgin is enough pressure to force herself to resort to this practice, whether she wants to or not.”

Calls for 'virginity repair' surgery to be banned 

 

Campaigners are urging the government to outlaw "virginity repair" surgery.

Many Muslim women risk being outcast, or in extreme cases killed, if their spouses or families discover they have had sex before marriage.

And some are opting for a medical procedure in which doctors restore a layer of membrane at the entrance to the vagina.

But there are concerns a ban would increase the dangers to Muslim women by driving the procedure underground.

Vagina rejuvenating therapies 'pose serious risk'

The rise in women seeking a perfect vagina

Guidelines from the General Medical Council (GMC) state a patient's consent to undergo a procedure should come into question if it is suspected of being "given under pressure or duress exerted by another person".

Allergan recalls textured breast implants linked to rare cancer 

 

Allergan announced a worldwide recall of textured breast implants Wednesday after the Food and Drug Administration found a sharp increase in a rare cancer and deaths linked to the products and asked the company to pull them off the U.S. market.

The Dublin-based company said it is recalling Biocell textured breast implants and tissue expanders from all markets in which they are sold. The devices had already been banned or recalled in several countries.

The FDA said the new data shows that 573 cases worldwide have linked the rare cancer to the implants since the agency began tracking the issue in 2011. The vast majority of those cases involve Allergan products. Thirty-three women have died of what’s known as breast implant-associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma, a cancer of the immune system. Of those fatalities, authorities identified the implant manufacturer in 13 cases — and it was Allergan in all but one.

What Your Penis is Telling You Right Now! 

 

You can tell a lot by taking a close look at your penis. Sometimes you look at it and everything seems perfectly normal. Other times it can feel fraught with danger, covered in lumps, spots, nodules, and protuberances that all look like evidence of your certain doom. We’re here to help you separate the facts from the panic attacks.

THESE SCIENTISTS ARE 3D-PRINTING NEW BODY PARTS FOR ATHLETES 

 

A team of bioengineers has successfully 3D-printed tissues they believe doctors could one day implant into patients to help heal the knee, ankle, and elbow injuries that have ended the careers of countless athletes.

“I think this will be a powerful tool to help people with common sports injuries,” Rice University researcher Sean Bittner said in a press release — though the impact of the group’s work could extend far beyond the turf or pitch.

The Surprising Reason We Lack So Much Knowledge About Women's Health 

 

One big way that gender bias in research has skewed biomedical knowledge is that a lot of the knowledge we have about diseases that affect both genders and the effects of drugs and other treatments is based on research on men. For decades, a lot of clinical research was done solely or largely on men and the results were extrapolated to women. It’s really only since the early nineties that the research community has begun to recognize the importance of including women and paying attention to the possibility that there may be sex/gender differences. Back then, the National Institutes of Health wasn’t keeping track of whether women were enrolled in its federally funded research. The Food and Drug Administration was prohibiting all women of childbearing age from taking part in early-phase drug trials. And researchers were generally reluctant to include women for paternalistic reasons (a concern for the possible risks to women and/or their future fetuses) and also out of laziness (accounting for women’s varying hormonal states and cycles was thought to make it more complicated and costly to get statistically significant results).

Red states will lose the most in trade war with China: Citigroup 

 

The U.S. officially implemented tariffs on Chinese imports, to which China immediately retaliated to with levies of its own.

This tit-for-tat trade war would mostly impact states that voted “overwhelmingly” in favor of Trump in 2016 as they possess “jobs and output significantly affected by tariffs,” says Dana Peterson, Citi's North America economist.

She notes, “80 percent of ‘red’ states produce goods subject to retaliatory tariffs totaling 10 percent or more of GDP, compared to 10 percent of ‘blue’ states.”

There’s Only One Correct Way to Measure a Penis 

 

If you were paying attention to the headline-grabbing work of pioneering sexologist Alfred Kinsey in the years after World War Two, you would have learned that the average length of an erect penis is around 6.21” while the average girth is 4.85". Because Kinsey and his team were the first to get granular over penis size, and the first to be famous for conducting such titillating research, these figures enjoyed incredible staying power over the subsequent decades. I posit that this 70-year-old data set’s notoriety—along with the ubiquity of porn and the rumored existence of Jared Leto’s formidable trouser schnauzer—may share the responsibility for the prevalence of Short Penis Syndrome or Penile Dysmorphic Disorder.

The Y chromosome is disappearing – so what will happen to men? 

 

The Y chromosome may be a symbol of masculinity, but it is becoming increasingly clear that it is anything but strong and enduring. Although it carries the “master switch” gene, SRY, that determines whether an embryo will develop as male (XY) or female (XX), it contains very few other genes and is the only chromosome not necessary for life. Women, after all, manage just fine without one.

What’s more, the Y chromosome has degenerated rapidly, leaving females with two perfectly normal X chromosomes, but males with an X and a shrivelled Y. If the same rate of degeneration continues, the Y chromosome has just 4.6m years left before it disappears completely. This may sound like a long time, but it isn’t when you consider that life has existed on Earth for 3.5 billion years.

NO PANTS SUBWAY RIDE: PLEASE DON'T GET NAKED IN A BOMB CYCLONE, DOCTORS ADVISE

 

The annual No Pants Subway Ride returns Sunday to cities across the world, and in related news, a temperature at which it might conceivably be reasonable to wear no pants while riding the subway in a ton of those cities does not.

The No Pants Subway Ride has been a January tradition since Improv Everywhere kicked it off in 2002. In New York City, where it originated, the temperature will be approximately 20 degrees Fahrenheit when the festivities are scheduled to commence at 3 p.m. eastern time.

PENIS-WHITENING LASER PROCEDURE GOES VIRAL IN THAILAND 

 

Updated / A Thai clinic more used to promoting cosmetic surgeries such as breast augmentation on its social media channels has gone viral for a less well-known procedure to change the pigmentation of the skin on the penis.

A Facebook post written by an employee of Bangkok’s Lelux Hospital promoting the procedure has received nearly 20,000 shares and more than 10,000 comments, mostly baffled or bemused, often tagging another person. The video uploaded with the post showed a man lying on a clinic’s table as the doctor seemingly performed the laser procedure and had been viewed more than 4 million times by Thursday.

Why most of us lean to the right when we kiss 

 

Your brain is an organ of two halves – the left side and the right side. And there are many brain functions, such as language skills or which hand you write with, which are organised mostly in one side of the brain or the other.

Simple behavioral tests have now allowed us to see how this organisation is revealed through biases in how we see and interact with the world – and each other – often without us being aware of it.

Examining how people perceive a diagram of variously orientated lines and angles provided clues that people typically have a subconscious bias for seeing things set out in clockwise orientations.

The Curve In Your Penis Might Be a Sign of Cancer 

 

Your penis says a lot about your health. While problems getting hard can point to blood flow issues that can put your heart at risk, how your penis looks can be telling, too: Peyronie’s disease—a condition where the formation of scar tissue leads to a curvature of your penis—might increase your risk of certain types of cancer, new research from Baylor College of Medicine suggests.
