Sex word is a taboo in many parts of the world. It’s a three letter word that is talked of in hushed tones both inside and outside the bedroom not just in our country but other nations as well. Be it because of the cultural factor or the general shyness associated with the topic, there’s something weird about the word that often discourages people from talking about it. Even though there’s an ‘air of abnormality’ associated with the topic, many places across the globe practice weird sex traditions that will make you scratch your head (literally!).

Here’s a list of some weird traditions that will make you go WTF:

A private contract is signed with a declaration of intent to marry.
