    There are human groups who have practiced genital mutilation as a form of extreme rite of passage activity. Such sado-masochistic divination beliefs do parallel Western ideas about S&M tattoo trending and reveal a shocking human curiosity about pain confrontation.

    There could be an anthropological relationship between pain categorization and ritual divination, an idea which reveals the modern appeal of relevant Hollywood (USA) movies such as "The Toxic Avenger" (1984).

    Understanding connections between seemingly disparate facets of mental activity comprises the modern challenge of 'consumption anthropology' (i.e., Facebook, etc.).

    It's more likely just a form of oppression instead.

    Female genital mutilation is horrific. However the most common form of genital mutilation is circumcision. This common western practice has no proven medical benifit.
