Our expert says:
In South Africa it has become standard tradition to get the poor groom as drunk as possible and then force the stripper on him. Over the years I have seen many men in my practise that are petrified of HIV and STI's as a result of the batchelor's party. It is possibly the silliest male gathering and has caused distress and sometimes devastating consequences.
I can see no logic behind this immature male games, but yes I suppose you are right it is "tradition".
I feel if the groom is possibly going to put his new bride at risk for any STI's or HIV, tests should be done.
