Wedding night sex armenia

As a patriarchal society, women are expected to dress up and men present them with flowers. Instead of observing the day in the traditional way, they were going to hand out leaflets informing women of their rights in a country where domestic violence remains a problem and patriarchy is the norm. Referring to the virginal bloodstains left by a bride on her wedding night, challenging the custom remains somewhat of a taboo. Although many families instead present an actual red apple rather than hang out stained bed linen for all to see, the tradition is still observed in some form. Simply put, most Armenian men expect to marry a virgin and double standards governing gender and sexuality in the country define the reality. Most Armenian men are believed to feel the same, and many Armenian women comply. Instead, the organizers issued a press release stating that their message was not that it was wrong to be a virgin, but that it was a matter of individual choice and not one to be dictated by society. Even so, the day was not without its incidents. A group of pro-government bloggers, for example, turned up to mock the event. One even said that he believed such marches should be illegal.

In Armenia, the red apple, besides being a fruit, is also a symbol. It symbolizes the Armenian girl's virginity. In traditional Armenia an opinion is accepted that the girl has no right to have sexual relations with anybody before the marriage. Anna the name is changed and her boyfriend have been studying at one of the most prestigious universities of Yerevan. After about a year of friendship, they got married in , but their married life lasted only a few hours. But after the first sexual intercourse, Anna's husband quickly stood up and examined the sheet. But there wasn't any blood.

Although couples now marry at a later age than before, some traditions have been slow to change in Christian Armenia. One custom, for example, expects women — but not men — to remain virgins until their wedding night. While some argue that the action by the feminist movement is long overdue, others consider it an external attack on the main foundation of local culture — the family. The first post on the rally and the tradition appeared on the OTL Blog three weeks earlier. This is a celebration of the woman loosing her hymen.

Most parents know that their kids have had sex before if they're in they're early 20s, especially boys when a boy turns 17 often his older friends will take him to a prostitute for his first time, though this tradition is thankfully dying out. Women are "supposed" to be virgins until they're married, and men and women usually don't cohabitate until after their wedding. Slowly, things are becoming more reasonable and modern. My wife and I weren't supposed to move in together until we were engaged, but we did anyway.

We live in Yerevan and they live in Vanadzor so that made it a bit easier regarding sneaking behind their back. Serious question, where are young Armenians having sex when most of them live with their parents? Well that's my guess. At least it's true for girls. Boys might still have sex with a prostitute. Yeah, that's what they're referred to as. By any measure, they're very strange, haha.

I've never been inside one but they're littered all over Kentron. My friend goes to one to sleep with her boyfriend because she still lives with her parents. Yes Airbnb's are relatively very expensive in Kentron.

Almost twice the cost of comparable ones in Old City, Tiflis. This is an official warning. This and your many similar responses to the questions about lube and the slang word for boob are essentially harassment, and are the opposite of the constructive dialogue mentioned in the sidebar. How have I harassed? I, in general, am against such topics being discussed in this sub.

This sub as it says is to discuss "quality posts" about Armenia, Armenian culture, politics, and so forth. Not a place for people who have questions about using drugs, prostitutes, or "slang word for boob" which to me seems to be trolling more than anything else. Writing "oh my god, it's begun" when someone is asking a very simple question about views on premarital sex. Asking what someone wants to use lube for for no constructive reason and a few similarly problematic responses I don't care to look up.

You've made that quite clear, but it's totally okay for people to discuss these topics here if they're not trolling. There is no prohibition on these topics and your responses are harassing those asking the questions. You can simply choose to not click on these threads if you're not interested in discussing them.

It's a lot easier than worrying about how "amot" it is to discuss premarital sex or lube. It is a hypocrisy that such people can post such vulgar topics that have little to do with our nation, yet if I try to counter it, it is prohibited.

If we view this as a sub for Armenia, then I severely doubt such topics would even be brought up in Armenian society at an open level. If we want to become a sub for marijuana, prostitution, "lube" , silly 10 year old question about body parts, then what can I say: I expect higher quality from the posts here, we should be serious people and there is a lot of interesting topics to discuss.

It is a hypocrisy that such people can post such vulgar topics that have little to do with our nation. Telling someone who needs lube they are "up to no good" is prohibited, and so are your other attempts to block these normal conversations. It's actually funny you say that because a married man and woman can certainly need lube for vaginal sex you know. It seems you do not live in Armenia, but regardless, I'm not interested in beating this dead horse of a subject.

It's vulgar because I don't believe conversations about what is going on in the bed sheets are appropriate for a sub dedicated to Armenian issues. How many posts have there been about La Francophonie? I actually do live between Armenia and another country, splitting my time between them but this is beside the point. I disagree with your approach, but I am not harassing anyone. I am seriously not trying to be an ass, but you may need professional help. Downvote me and throw a tantrum all you want, that's my honest opinion. This is bullshit.

Armenia is not Saudi Arabia and the topic of sex is a very normal everyday subject for myself and people of my circle, all Yerevan natives. Again, you may be 12, or a monk, or just in a very unfortunate psychological state, but lube is a perfectly neutral pharmaceutical concept that does not send Armenians into a coma when it's brought up.

So me questioning a poster's intentions is "harassment" yet you telling me to get psychological help, is ok? I don't know what to say You have an erroneous belief in a static, unchanging, ostensibly "traditional" or primordial Armenian culture much of which doesn't even really go that far back and lash out at any post, or development in Armenia, that doesn't conform to this standard, the "quality" of the post notwithstanding let's not forget you reacted similarly when someone who was genuinely curious inquired about Buddhism in Armenia -- a "low quality" post by your standards.

It's pretty monstrous. I agree with him on this one. What's the definition of quality posts? A MAGA hat was top post of the day and is now top of all time because we got brigaded for fuck's sake. It was a rare exception and not a rule.

Usually questions even simple ones directed at the sub are ok as long as there is no trolling or similar. The MAGA hat post was removed. It was a slow weekend and by the time I noticed it, it already had upvotes. Axper, I am not asking for deep academic posts everytime, all I say such topics we sometimes see here just brings down the quality, and then I am the person reprimanded. There are many subs, forums, social media sites out there, but we can strive to be better quality.

For example, these two days our country is hosting La Francophonie, an honor to see our country hosting such a big event, so many world leaders, how about we pride ourselves in that and discuss it? I am marked as a "troll" yet check the type of people posting these vulgar topics. They are to be protected from me? I am making people asking about definition of a female. I literally agreed with you though. There are a lot of low quality shit get posted and not removed by the mods. Use of this site constitutes acceptance of our User Agreement and Privacy Policy.
