    Default Breast Ironing Of Young Girls In Cameroon

    While many in Ghana and the sub-region have cried foul over old traditional practices like Female Genital Mutilation (FGM), Cameroon is holding on to Breast Ironing to "prevent" thier daughters from falling prey to promiscuous men.

    Breast Ironing is a process where mothers use hot stones or objects to constantly press the breasts of their daughters to ‘flatten’ them and preventing them from standing firm and thus 'provoke' interest from men. They say this act prevents guys and men from being attracted to these girls (especially their breasts) thus preventing teenage pregnancy.

    The attached video, a documentary on the practice, tells it all.

    This ranks way up there with the Trokosi sex slave practice and female genital mutilation. I was taken aback when i saw the video.
