Regaining one's virginity is all the rage amongst Muslim women in France. A quick 30-minute operation termed 'hymenoplasty' allows non-virgins to have their hymen re-sewn, meaning these women are technical virgins once again.
Implications - This virginity-restoring procedure costs women between 1,500 and 3,000 euros, which for Americans would work out to be approximately $2,000 to $4,000. For young new converts who want to reclaim their purity as they become immersed in their new beliefs, this small procedure provides them the opportunity to do just that. You wouldn't be able to tell if someone had the operation done or not, which makes it all the more appealing for those looking to get it done.
