From a tribe of semen-drinking men to the community of brothers sharing a wife, amaze yourself with these 10 shocking tribal sex traditions from around the world. Paying for dinner and a movie to get someone into the sack is so passe, or at least foreign to other cultures. Take a look at some of the rituals other peoples practice. To become a man in this primitive tribe, boys are removed from the presence of all females at the age of seven, living with other males for ten years. During the ten years, the skin is pierced to remove any contamination brought upon by women. For the same reason, they also regularly incur nose-bleeding and vomiting caused by consuming large amounts of sugarcane. To top it off, they are required to ingest the semen of their elders, which is thought to sustain growth and strength. When they are finally introduced back into the tribe, they continue to engage in nose-bleeding at the same time as their wives' menstrual cycles.
Some models like to be controversial. It keeps them relevant and all the publicity usually helps propel their careers forward. Marisa Papen, for example, is no stranger to controversy. After doing a naked photoshoot in ancient Egyptian temples, she claims she was sent to jail. She shared the pictures of her African trip where she walked naked among the members of an isolated Ethiopian tribe, taken by Australian photographer Jesse Walker. But to me they are, what we once were. In touch with nature, a part of nature, immensely grateful and respectful towards it. They scar their bodies by making little cuts repetitively. Body painting is a long historical staple of the Surma tribe; by using pulverised minerals, they create drawings and patterns, something which Marisa tried out on her own body. Many argued that Marisa was being insensitive to the culture when she posed naked in Egypt, a historically Muslim country.
