The Hamar Tribe Where Women Beg Men To Beat Them


See The Hamar Tribe Where Women Beg Men To Beat Them

The ceremony starts with all the female relatives performing a dance, during which they offer themselves as subjects to be whipped by men who have recently been initiated.




The beatings go on until their backs turn bloody. During the beatings, women are not allowed to scream. They do not also flee the ceremony but rather beg the men to beat them over and over again.
The women accept these beatings to show their love and support of the initiate, and their scars give them a right to demand his help in time of need.




The man must subsequently leap across 15 cows in order to be allowed to marry and once that is achieved a celebration is held to end the ceremony.

Women in the Hamar tribe are subject to beatings even after the ceremony at any time the man pleases unless they give birth to at least two children.

The rules of the tribe also say that men do not need to explain why they are beating the women as they can do so as and when they feel is right.
Hamar men can also marry more than one woman, but the women who are not first wives are treated more like slaves as they do a majority of the work.
