11 weird sexual traditions around the world

11 weird sexual traditions around the world

This might be hard to believe, but the notion of sex around the globe can be very different depending on where you are.

From tribes in Papua New Guinea all the way to Iran, we count down 5 shocking sexual traditions from around the world.

These sexual practices are not just general kinkiness, they are tradition and culture demanding compliance. For some cultures it’s seen as taboo, while others it’s an open celebration that people love to partake in (and talk about). But how many of these alternative cultures do you really know about?

Get ready for a jaw dropping moment with these sexual customs.

  1. Something Fishy

In Brazil’s Mehinaku village, men compete for sex with women by giving them gifts of fish. Mind it, diamonds and other precious stones will never do the trick!

2. Masturbation is sacred

The ancient Egyptians believed that Atum, the god of creation, created the entire universe by releasing himself. They thought even the ebb and flow of Nile was caused due to Atum’s ejaculation. So Pharaohs released themselves in the river religiously to ensure an abundance of water. We aren’t sure if modern Egypt still follows the practice.

3. Semen drinking to get stronger for sex

In the Sambian tribe of New Guinea, young men are kept away from women for a set period. They are given the semen of the mighty warriors of their tribes to drink so they become strong and manly to impress their woman.

This is done between the age 7 and 10 years. During this period, they undergo piercings, nose bleeds. It’s a tradition

4. An apple for sex

In rural Austria, young women perform a ritual dance with apple slices stuffed in their armpits. After the dance, each gives her slice to the man of her choice. If the man accepts it and eats it, they are allowed to have sex.

5. No kissing (Mozambique)

For the Tonga tribe, kissing is unhygienic, as it involves coming in contact with another person’s saliva. This isn’t unusual, though.

Even though Western culture has made kissing seem like a norm, studies have found that more than half of the world’s societies find kissing ‘gross.’

6. Women of the Guajiro tribe must make a man ‘fall’ to have sex

Colombia’s Guajiro people have a ceremonial dance. If a woman trips a man during the dance, they must have sex.

7. Girls of the Trobriander Tribe engage in sexual acts from age 6

Boys from Trobriander Tribe from Papua, New Guinea start engaging in sexual activity from the age of 10-12, while the girls start from 6 years! Sexuality is embraced from an astonishingly young age. And it isn’t even “illegal”.

8. In Mangaia, older women have sex with young boys

In South Pacific Ocean, Mangaia to be precise, boys around the age of 13 have sex with older women who teach them the intricacies of the act and how best to please their partners. Beat it!

For Ancient Greeks, sexual identity didn’t depend on gender and preference but on who was the active penetrator and who was the penetratee(?).

The active role was associated with higher social status, while the passive role meant youth and femininity, or ‘boy love’ in other words.

9. Brothers share bride in the Himalayas

On this mountain range, there is very little land, and thus, very little room for many families. As a result, resources are limited, and it makes more sense for a single woman to have multiple husbands but these husbands also happen to be brothers who totally don’t mind sharing a wife.

10. Orgies and multiple partners (Chhattisgarh)

The Muria tribe also has a very liberal attitude towards sex. They have a festival in which teenage girls and boys are taught about sex. They have sex with multiple partners and even engage in orgies. They’re encouraged to do so without emotional attachment.

11. Where the women judge the men (Niger)

The Wodaabe tribe has a festival where men perform and are judged by a panel of three women. Other women watching can choose their favorite and tap him on the shoulder. He then becomes their new husband, even if they already have one.
