In review of the current societal standards, it’s no lie that the concept of virginity before marriage is dying a slow but sure death.

However, a large group of communities still believe in this old virtue of female chastity as a source of honor and respect to the families becoming one.


That is why there exists a budding market for artificial hymens all over the world.

The idea to invent an artificial hymen originated from Japan where women who wanted to hide their sexual history from their newly wed husbands used them. Now, greatly selling online at, women all over the world are making orders. They retail at $29.95 (Sh 3,089) with free shipping with a very promising privacy policy.

How does it work?

According to the site, the hymen is inserted into the vagina just 20 minutes to having sex. If put earlier, it will start to dissolve inside the vagina.

The artificial hymen is designed to expand and fit the vagina making it feel tight.


“I was surprised at how good the hymen worked. Almost immediately there was penetration, blood oozed out. Good thing I had been ‘there’ before, so I knew what and how to react,” joked a Muslim woman named Hasfa when she was interviewed by People Daily.

The artificial hymen that is also known as artificial virginity kit is a type of prosthetic membrane created for the purpose of simulating an intact human hymen. It is filled with a red blood like liquid that is clinically proven to be non-toxic to human with no side effects, no pain to use and no allergic reactions.


However, Dr Waruhiu Wahome says that not much is known about the artificial hymen and it's effects, " t sounds like a plan for women in need. However, being new in the industry, we have not had an opportunity to research on its effects. What I can guarantee you is that foreign things introduced to the vagina will have effect." 

How to use it

According to the site, one pack comes with two so that you can try it out before the big day.

This is how to use it:

1.    Wash both hands thoroughly with soap to ensure the highest possible hygiene level

2.    Open the aluminum package and completely unfold the artificial hymen.

3.    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.
