Most cultures recognize monogamy, the practice of having one partner at one time, while some cultures embrace polygamy, the practice of having more than one partner at the same time. Here are 10 bizarre sexual traditions from around the world.

The Deer Horn Muria are a tribe who live in the forests of Central India’s Chhattisgarh region.
