The Social Constructions of Vaginal Practices in Indonesia: the Use of Traditional Remedies to Dry and Tighten the Vagina

Iwu Dwisetyani Utomo BA, MSc, DrPh

Vaginal drying practices are known to contribute to susceptibility to sexually transmitted infections, and are likely to shape patterns of gendered interactions that may seriously disadvantage women. These practices have not been adequately documented in Southeast Asia. In this paper the gender constructions of vaginal drying practices in Indonesia will be addressed and analysed.
