Sexual practices: unusual traditions depending on the country
In Papua New Guinea, young men of a tribe have a habit of drinking the semen of their elder to become a man in the eyes of the community. In Japan, the tendency in Tokyo is, for some women, to fully bandage their bodies in order to please men.
