RIDICULOUS! See Country Where Women Are Flogged To Prove Their Love To Their Husband Before Marriage(PHOTOS)

A brutal ceremony in which the women are whipped mercilessly to show their love and affection has been revealed in pictures by a photographer.

A tribal ceremony during which young women are whipped in order to show the sacrifices they make for men is revealed in a series of photographs, according to a report by Dailymail.   The strange ceremony takes place among the Hamar tribe people of Ethiopia. According to the people of the tribe, scars demonstrate a woman’s capacity for love, and if they fall on hard times later in life it allows them to call on those who whipped them for help.  Women are whipped as part of a Rite of Passage ceremony for boys, when female family members declare their love for the young man at the heart of the celebration. After the ceremony the boy becomes a man, and is allowed to marry. The brutal tradition is known as Ukuli Bula, and was captured by photographer Jeremy Hunter. Instead of fleeing, women beg men to whip them again during the ceremony, held in the Omo River Valley.

A key element of the ceremony is the whipping of young women who are family members or relatives of the boy undertaking the Rite-of-Passage.

The women trumpet and sing, extolling the virtues of the Jumper, declaring their love for him and for their desire to be marked by the whip.  Image result for Country where women are flogged before their wedding They coat their bodies with butter to lessen the effect of the whipping which is only carried out by Maza – those who have already undergone this Rite-of-Passage.  Image result for Country where women are flogged before their wedding  Some whipping appears to be tender, others more aggressive.
