Infibulation

Definition - What does Infibulation mean?

Infibulation is the removal of the external female genitalia, and the suturing of the vulva to prevent sexual intercourse. The practice also sometimes involves the clasping of foreskin in men.

Kinkly explains Infibulation

Infibulation is a common practice in northeastern African countries. Although it is a traditional practice, it is also very controversial. The practice occurs to varying degrees from the fastening of a ring, clasp, or stitches to the labia majora, to more severe genital mutilation including complete removal of the clitoris, labia minor, and majora with the stitching up of most of the vagina. The practice is more common in women, though does occur with men and the clasping of the foreskin.

Quotes

  • Sex is full of lies. The body tries to tell the truth. But, it's usually too battered with rules to be heard, and bound with pretenses so it can hardly move. We cripple ourselves with lies.
    - Jim Morrison
