The Most Brutal Rites Of Passage To Become A Man In Cultures Around The World

Crazy rites of passage into manhood have been around for a long time. Throughout history, humans have come up with some pretty bizarre, and sometimes violent, methods for their children to prove themselves worthy enough to call themselves men. Nowadays, in much of the developed world, becoming a man consists of surviving to the age of 18, at which point you can buy all the vape juice and pornography your heart desires. However, there are still some cultures in the world today that have held on to their ancient practices, and these brutal male rites of passage will make you more than happy to start paying your own cell phone bill.
