People Are Criticizing Amazon India For Selling Virginity Pills

Amazon India is now at the center of controversy for marketing virginity pills, allowing women to fake their virginity on their wedding nights.

Amazon India is now at the center of controversy after users reported that it is marketing virginity pills which are said to allow women to fake their virginity on their wedding nights.

The controversial product, called “i-virgin” contains small capsules that consist of a weird looking “blood powder” which is supposed to imitate human blood. According to the description, a few hours before being intimate with their partner, the user only needs to insert the pill in their vagina. The manufacturer adds that the pill poses no danger to the user’s health as the fake blood will completely dissolve. Internet users have been accusing Amazon India of supporting a taboo dating back centuries by selling this type of product.

In some regions in India, it is a life-or-death situation to pass a virginity check with the groom’s relatives checking the bed sheet after the couple’s wedding night. And if the bride doesn’t pass the test, compensation must be paid by her family case. In extreme cases, the bride even has to go through a series of trials such as staying underwater without coming up for a period of time or stepping on hot embers. Many are concerned that in a place where a woman’s worth is determined by her virginity, such a product will just encourage this taboo to continue.

It’s worth noting that similar products have already been sold on the Amazon European site for years. Users can also find these virginity-faking capsules on Alibaba, the Chinese megastore.

i-virgin was sold on Amazon India at the price of Rs 3,600 per pack. However, it has already been removed.
