Marina, 13 years old. she started to iron herself since she was 11 years old and recently she started to iron her nine years old sister who requested her to iron her as well after watching her ironing herself.
Marina got to know about breast ironing through her classmate who her mother ironed her after seeing boys running after her. her classmates were convinced and started to practice it on themselves one after another without the family knowing.
Marina requested her aunt to do it for her, who refused. she was waiting for her aunt to leave for the farm and iron herself using a "Fofo" stick after massaging the breasts with the chef leaves -" Roi des herbes" for 3 mins every 2-3 days.
