Neck Stretching Rings

February 2nd 2007 07:39
A neck ring is a band of metal worn as an ornament around the neck of an individual. In a few African and Asian cultures multiple neck rings are worn usually to stretch the neck. The Karen people from the country of Myanmar and Thailand begin to wear neck rings when they are children. Gradually with age the number of "brass coils" worn increases to elongate the neck.

The custom of wearing neck rings is related to an ideal of beauty. Neck rings push the collarbone down and stretch the neck muscles several inches. The stretching of the muscles takes several years to occur. The neck stretching is mostly illusory; the weight of the rings twists the collar bone and eventually the upper ribs to create the illusion of an elongated neck. Contrary to popular belief the neck vertebrae are not elongated.

Below are some photos of women with their neck rings, see some more pictures here.

It's a little more f'ed up than a corset lol! You can take corsets off lol...if you take these rings off all at once, your neck will snap in it's weakened state. Deforms both the neck and shoulders. It would take many years to POSSIBLY someday take all the rings off safely. Even the tighest tight lacers can go back lol.
