American Rites of Passages Make Other Cultures Look Soft

The concept of the “Rite of Passage” is seen in all cultures. It’s a universal mark indicative of transitioning from adolescence to adulthood in order to be accepted in a social group. From Aborigines in Australia to New York, rite of passage is used to separate the men from the boys. Today we dig deep into some of the most horrific rites of passage in modern times and compare them to a range of rites in the US. None of them seem to rival “Hunger Games”, but they definitely are unique.

Sambia Tribe

The Sambia Tribe’s Rite of Passage is considered as one of the cruelest of all. It involves mutilation, lots of blood and being forced to “copulate” with the tribe’s oldest warriors. All done in six simple steps, quick and painless, right? No, the six stages are spread out between 10 to 15 years. The Sambia Tribe’s six stage Rite of Passage includes:

  • First, the boy (aged between 6 to 10) is separated from his mother and all women as a way to prove their masculinity. The idea here is to convince everyone in the village that he can live without women.
  • A sharp stick is inserted into the child’s nostrils until he bleeds profusely.
  • They are then introduced to old warriors and are forced to copulate with them when they become bachelors. Throughout the six stages of the tribe’s rite of passage, the boy will perform fellatio to these warriors to, ironically, prove he is a real man. Because shoving manhood into a boy’s mouth is obviously a great way to make a man out of a six year old.
