adolescence in other cultures

Genital mutilation is a traditional feature in other countries, which is the partial or total surgical removal of the external female genitalia. It is an ancient practice that has been perpetuated in many communities around the world, simply follow the customs that make up an important part of ceremonial rites of passage to adulthood. The primary objective of this mutilation, is to keep young people in the control of sexuality, but mostly of her virginity before marriage and chastity after marriage.
Another example is that of some African countries that rely on puberty ceremonies, in which girls undergo scarification (scarring caused by hot iron, caustic paste, etc.) In the womb, as a rite of passage not to be infertile; are scrapings in the womb, as x-ray of the baby, similar to those that were carved female figures (representations of the goddess), with dancing in fertility ceremonies.
