Women Biggest Buyers of Voodoo Dolls in ChinaPosted: October 17, 2013
A search for voodoo dolls on China’s online shopping platform Taobao yields thousands of results, with most of the 6,000 comments posted by females, according to the Chengdu-based West China City Daily.
Among the voodoo curses are those that target former boyfriends, colleagues, bosses, and women who steal boyfriends.
A female customer surnamed Zhang said she had bought a voodoo doll to punish a man who was harassing her, but became afraid at the sight of the doll poked by so many needles.
Voodoo dolls priced at 10 yuan ($1.6) or higher were also being sold in stores in downtown Chengdu.
Weng Jin, an psychology expert, said that voodoo dolls are not a healthy way for people to deal with negative emotions.Beijing news
