“Artificial hymen: $29.95.

Your dignity: Priceless.

You choose which to keep.” 

 

This was the heading of The Huffington Post (THP) report on the ‘infamous’ Artificial Hymen Kit.

 

The THP refers to “The Kit”, which is said to be a “rare” product that promises to restore one’s virginity, available at hymenshop.com.

 

In the store’s website, the company assures their clients that, for less than $30, you will “kiss your deep dark secret goodbye and marry in confidence”. More than that, it has a plus for having “no surgery, no needles, no medication, no side effects”.

 

“Restore your Virginity and have your first night back anytime!”, the  store added.

 

Why hymen restoration?

 

The store explains that women are naturally concerned in preserving their virginity. However, unforeseen events may cause the breaking hymens even in simple “physical activity” or “even by the use of a tampon”. Thus, Hymenoplasty, or the process of hymen repair is necessary.

 

However, it noted that hymen reconstruction is expensive and thus “The Kit” is a practical, helpful choice.

 

“While the Hymenoplasty procedure requires admission to a clinic and can cost thousands of dollars, the artificial hymen provides much cheaper and convenient way to become a virgin again!”, it said.

 

The “Revirgination” Process

 

The store also reveals the “How it Works” secret of “The Kit”.

 

“Insert the Artificial Hymen into your vagina carefully. It will expand a little and make you feel tight. When your lover penetrates, it will ooze out a liquid that appears like blood, not too much but just the right amount. Add in a few moans and groans and you will pass through undetectable! It’s easy to use, clinically proven non-toxic to human and has no side effects, no pain to use and no allergic reaction.”

 

The store also shares some friendly reminders”.

*        Wash both hands thoroughly with soap to ensure the highest possible hygine level

*        Open the Aluminum package and completely unfold the Artificial Hymen, then carefully place it inside the vagina using your index finger. If the vagina is dry, dip the Artificial Hymen in water and then put it into the vagina as quickly as you can, using your index finger.

*        Place the Artificial Hymen inside the vagina not more than 15-20 minutes before the intercourse. Please note that inserting the Artificial Hymen inside the vagina any longer than 20 minutes before the intercourse may result in the product losing its form and eventually dissolve inside the vagina.

*        Finally after the sexual intercourse, clean the vulva from the fake blood. Please note that some of the Artificial Hymen will dissolve inside the vagina and will not fall out completely after the intercourse.

 

Sounds appealing?

 

The THP, however, cautioned that “if, for some reason, a brand new hymen sounds appealing to you, don’t get your hopes too high.”

 

It shared that the New York Magazine took the product for a test run and the result was not that good.

 

“It seems like the Artificial Hymen Kit serves more as a packet of fake blood than actual flesh”, it said.

And we repeat the very title of the THP.
