    Is This True!!!!!



    I recently read that a long time ago in Asia, women used to have there feet "bound" and the reason for this is it fixed something so it tigtened the walls of the vagina so it would be like having intercourse with a virgin everytime. Now is this true?

    P.S.- I am sorry if I offended anyone with this post.

    Feet binding was a practice in China I believe, but that was not that reason. It was considered good for girls to have small feet I believe, so parents would bind them at birth, usually breaking bones of the feet to do so.

    I'm not sure about Japan, but I promise you that it is a superstition. I also promise you that if you try to do this to anyone she'll freaking kill you

    i saw a documetary about that on TV.

    they broke the foot in the middle and bent it underneath the foot and used cotton ribbons to bind it that way

    it's a while since i saw the documentary, but it was concidered "sexy/beutiful" for whomen to have small feet, and/or also to keep them in the house... kinda hard to walk with the top side of your feet

    think it was banned only 200 years ago or so

    That was in China, and I don't know about it tightening the vaginal walls. I think men just found those tiny feet highly erotic, so they would start to bind girls' feet from a very early age. I believe they called it "lotus feet". It was not done in Japan, I don't believe.

    Here's an article about it and it has exerpts from the book Splendid Slippers:

    Well, I don't know about the wisest...but thanks anyway...

    And you're welcome. You can just search 'foot binding' on Google or Yahoo and you can find several articles on it.

    The demons and monsters of Japanese myth. I have yet to see a more interesting or weird set of mythological creatures. From very weird perverse demons, to some that will suck your guts out through your rear end...

    They have them all.

    That's very curios though. Before, couple of thousand of years ago, Chinese used to think that feet bound like that were sexy. Now, males sometimes have a thing for women's toes and ankles, that's why u see them using ankle bracelets, nailpolish on their toes, and sometimes even toe rings. Some men like to lick female toes and what not. Is just so interesting to see what is considered "sexy" and how that just changes from time to time. I'm sure the old chinese would never think that in a million years painted toe nails and ankle bracelets would capture the male attention. Who knows what will be next! Who comes up with these trends anyway?

    well..look at this way. If you cover a specific part of the female/male body with clothing for a couple of decades or so.
    then it will be looked upon as something "tabu" to show in public, therefore also a sexy or even erotic part of the body

    Makes perfect sense. But it's not true at all times.
