It is said that women from the Hamar tribe in Ethiopia get beaten to demonstrate their love for their men.
The women engage in a tribal ceremony during which they are flogged to show the sacrifices they make for their men.
The beating is said to go on until the women’s back turns bloody.
During the process, they are not allowed to scream. They even go to the point of begging the men to do it over and over again.
The tradition is known as Ukuli Bula and is done as part of a Rite of Passage ceremony for boys.
