Do Cambodian women know about ovulation cycles?

Post by PhnomRon » Wed Dec 12, 2018 11:24 am

I had a 25 year old Cambodian girlfriend and when I suggested that we should be particularly careful on certain days of the month to avoid pregnancy, she had no idea. She asked me to explain how I knew, and how many days after her period were more or less likely for her to get pregnant.

Is this common? Do they not learn about this kind of stuff ever?

I once heard a story about how some NGO workers went to a girly bar in Daun Penh to educate the staff about sexual health and were shocked to discover that some of the bar girls "didn't know where babies come from".

My friend (the Belgian) knows all about periods and ovulation cycles. He’s also very gay.

OP, don't worry. It's all in the official curriculum, maybe your GF skipped a day at class once?

Google Translate:

I suggested that banging her bareback was fine on specific days of the month, but she wasn't having any of it.

Strippers make more money when they are ovulating. https://www.psychologytoday.com/au/arti ... ers-secret


Do you think that Cambodian bar girls get more lady drinks when they are ovulating?

Of course Cambodian women know about ovulation cycles.

And what is more, they also have access to free sound advice on these matters from the likes of :

UNFPA + WPRO and RHAC to mention just a few.

It must be a male asking this question.

I think it depends on the area. Some females don’t talk to their matriarch about it and don’t learn about it at school.

I know of one guy (not Belgian) who had to tell his wife about periods and the things they use “up there”. Apparently insertable ones is unheard of in SE Asia. She’s a PhD student.
