I am giving a speech for Toastmasters
on Friday about interesting and unusual dating rituals.
I can find information about intimate relationships in the US pretty easily (e.g.: Polygamy, Homosexual relationships, etc.), but I'm curious what else is going on in the world.
For example: I've heard about tribes in Africa that sew the female's genitals up until she is married. I'm looking for information that's not common knowledge.
If possible could you throw in the source of where you learned that information? And if you have any neat statistical facts (with a source) about relationships in the US or anywhere in the world, that would be greatly appreciated as well.
Thanks in advance!
