I-Virgin Blood Pills For Wedding Nights Were On Amazon

From T.I.'s daughter's yearly virginity checks to this product on Amazon, it's 2019 and we're still not over out-dated perceptions about virginity.

From T.I.'s daughter's yearly virginity checks to this product on Amazon available until recently, it's 2019 and we're still not over out-dated perceptions of virginity.

I-Virgin, described as a pill to be inserted into the vagina a short while before wedding night sex, is a product intended to help women fake virginity on their wedding night in case, you know, they're not virgins. It imitates the hymen being broken, a popular yet misconstrued test to judge women's virginity.

Two Sides To The Coin

Now there're two sides to this when it comes to Indian society. There are several regions where the bloodied bedsheet is still regarded as a mark of a woman's purity and a prerequisite for her or her family to deserve any respect, apparently. Such a product could help women who may have broken their hymen pre-marriage (whether virgins or not) not face unjust backlash from a sexist community.

However, given that most regions where such practices still exist tend to be poorer by average income and development levels, the high price tag of 3,100 Rupees makes this product inaccessible to most people who would have needed it anyway.

The existence of such products, and them being hosted on a large platform like Amazon for any amount of time, propagates and supports ideas that our society would be better off without. While Amazon has since taken the product down, presumably due to the rightful and massive backlash, the very existence of I-Virgin is troubling in today's day and age.

Someone took the time and effort to actually create, package, and sell I-Virgin, perhaps even created an entire brand around the same. If anything, an unpleasant jolt to reality about the world we live in.
