These women consider a single brass coil around a women’s neck beautiful.

At 5 years old the first coil is placed around the neck.

When they put on the last coil it can weigh up to 5kg.

The secret to the giraffe looking neck is the clavicle and ribs descending 45 degrees than the normal posture.

It ensures that they will marry only within their tribe.

Some say it is to protect them from tiger bites.


  • Skinny women are considered poor and fat women wealthy.

  • Girls as young as 5yrs. Old and as old as 19 drink up to 5 gallons of camel’s milk or cow’s milk that is enriched with fat. They do this to get the desired silvery stretch marks on their upper arms.

  • Refusing to be force fed or vomiting the milk results in feet between sticks, pulling her ear, pinching her inner thigh, bending the finger backward, or making her drink her own vomit.

These women believe skin is the most important part of the body to take care of.

To keep their skin smooth and without blemishes they usually drink collagen enriched foods : beef tendons, water and collagen, and chicken enriched with collagen.

One ancient tradition for skin care relies on nightingale droppings and soap.

It is then dried out into a powder and mixed with the soap and used as a face wash.

Japanese women use whitening creams to get the desired complexion.

Most creams have toxic mercury as an active ingredient and some even have steroids. Steroids in a whitening cream can cause permanent skin bleaching, thinning of skin, development of visible blood vessels, uneven coloring or blotchiness, redness, intense irritation, and black and blue discoloration.
