Orgasm inducing skills are a method by which men boast of their virility and enhance their status among each other. Carnal knowledge and the ability to please a woman confer bragging rights upon the practitioner. Just like pornography, female pleasure is at the heart of male sexuality. How far are some men willing to go?
Bolitas are small plastic balls shot out of toy guns. However, some use them for a particular genital modification known as Pearling. This process involves inserting small, usually spherical objects under the skin of the penis. This custom has been practiced for at least hundreds of years. It is even found in the present-day American carceral system. Let us examen the case of the Philippines.
Pearling has been documented in the Philippines as far back as the 16th Century:
(The italics are mine)
“Both young and old males pierce their penises with a gold or tin rod the size of a goose quill. In both ends of the same bolt, some have what resembles a spur, with points upon the ends; others are like the head of a cart nail. I very often asked many, both young and old, to see their penis, because I could not credit it. In the middle of the bolt is a hole, through which they urinate. The bolt and the spurs always hold firm. They say that the women wish it so, and if they did otherwise they would not have communication with them. When a man wishes to have intercourse with a woman, she takes his penis not in the normal way, but gently introduces first the top spur and then the bottom one into her vagina. Once inside, the penis becomes erect and cannot be withdrawn until it is limp.”
“These ornaments required manipulation by the woman herself to insert”
“could not be withdrawn until the male organ was completely relaxed.”
“There as many as 30 different kinds to cater to a lady’s choice.”
What catches my attention right away is how the penis cannot be withdrawn until flaccid: Perhaps this is the true reason why women preferred the modification as it almost guarantees an intra-vaginal ejaculation increasing the chance of pregnancy. If it is the case, let us take a moment to contemplate the extreme control these women would wield over male sexuality: not only must men undergo a painful mutilation, not unlike tagging the ear of livestock, but are basically prohibited from non-reproductive sexual activity. We wonder how Feminists can complain with a straight face about patriarchal control of female sexuality, even in North America…
The subject was even raised on a website dedicated to answering questions about the Philippines:
“Why did these men do it? According to the implant-providers interviewed, the predisposing factor to implant adoption was the insertees’ altruistic desire to make their partners “happy” and “content.” Other reasons given were: peer pressure and male adventurousness. Still another reason given was — and this is just a conjecture on their part I think — that these men were probably feeling inadequate and wanted to increase their organ’s size. Following the insertion procedure, over 40% of the insertee-respondents had penile-centered complications, ranging from biting, deep and throbbing pain, to inflammation, to pus. Some veins were apparently also punctured during the procedure, causing more than just mild itching, I’m sure.
But now comes the crux of your question: What about the women? Of the 14 female respondents who had bolitas users as partners, 8 confirmed there was a “difference” during the act; 4 said there was “no difference”; and 2 were “uncommitted.” However, 7 of the 14 — an even 50% — also had rashes, wounds, pus or inflammation in their vagina after the act.”
Women complain of high-heels, make-up, watching what they eat etc. in order to be esthetically pleasing to men. But do they ever consider what men go through to gain approval from women? The pain and risks incurred with pearling demonstrate the types of extremes men accept to provide women with as much happiness as possible and the continued expectation that manhood is defined by ones ability to withstand physical abuse.
