While the now dwindling practice of female genital mutilation is done in Nigeria and other places,the people of Rwanda practise (what they call Gukuna Imishino) female genital modification. A team of health experts who earlier visited this country told the WHO that what they saw is MODIFICATION and not MUTILATION. Here, instead of cutting off some parts of the female child's genital, the very young girls,under the couching of their mother, older female family member or even older female friend, starts stretching their labia minora with the leaves of a local plant that has anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.This they do for years even up to their adolescent age. Yes,this has been their culture practised over the years to enhance and maximise sexual satisfaction. The science behind this is that it stimulates and makes active the sex glands as well as increases the size of the clitoris and flaps of the labia minora. This must have been responsible for the orgasmic ejecting of fluids in the form of female ejaculation during sexual intercourse. Infact,u may not believe it(but it is true) that ejecting such a quantity of fluid by females when stimulated is real. There has been a lot of controversy as a result of experts trying to give scientific explanation to the phenomenom with some experts saying such claims are false. WHO could neither discourage nor encourage this practice,since they are not able to prove anything harmful about it. In ur own opinion, should this practice be condemned,allowed or encouraged?

Once it is found not harmful by medical experts, then let it stand. By the way, why must anything Africa be condemned? The whites, asians and other races have some practices, nobody talks. Africa has always been a focal point of Western media and research. Why?
@Prince. Thanks for ur contribution.
It is the fire wood that is found in a place that is used to prepare the people's meals.  If WHO has not been able to find anything harmful from the practice, it should be encouraged.
@Charles.Thanks for ur positive viewpoint.
Can I quickly add here that in a world of increasing risk of sexual transmitted disease like HIV/AIDS,this raises the need of being cautious when it comes to sexual intercourse since there is high presence of fluids involved(due to the effect of this modification). Wetness increases risk of infection. But u may ask: what have been the social effect as well? Well,to people of this culture, how suitable a woman is is rated by the amount of fluid she is able to secrete or eject during intercourse. In some cases,it is said to be the reason why men have abandon their partners if they are found not able to perform this phenomenon. And as such,it comes as reason for pride to women who can perform this,and has lead to the reinforcement of this culture of genital modification. To men of other cultures,this may be embarrasing and quite strange. Imagine getting ur body and bed sheets wet each time u have intercourse with ur partner.
Whether mutilation of modification, it is a way of life of the Rewanda's that is practiced and accepted by them for decades. WHO, at best can only enlighten them on the antecedent risk of infection associated with it and not put a stop to it.
I concur but can I pls beg u remove the word 'mutilation' in ur statement?

But if I may ask: can u personally marry a woman that wets the bed profusely each time u have intercourse with her? Possibly washing ur bedsheets and sunning ur mattrass all the time or u risk gettimg ur room smelling offensively? Do u see this development as an issue? ...at least,for a male foreigner...do u think he can cope?
