A Town Full of Single Women

A town called Alice
Picture this, a town that is full of Brazilian women who are so desperate for men they've even written a press release about it. It sounds like the plot of a Carry On film where Bernard Bresslaw plays one of the Brazilian woman who can't pull. But it's not. It's real.

Noiva do Cordeiro, in southeast Brazil, has a 600-strong population that is entirely female, and I'm assuming one heck of a population of cats too. The women are tired of this situation. They want a man to sweep them off their feet and treat them like a princess but they're fresh out. One desperate female, 23-year-old Nelma Fernandes, saying, "Here, the only men we single girls meet are either married or related to us, everyone is a cousin." If you have to contemplate breeding with your own cousin you already are being treated like royalty.

Nelma added, "We all dream of falling in love and getting married." It's nice that there's a place where you can still find such a positive attitude to marriage, even if that is a place that hasn't seen an actual man for years. She said, "I haven't kissed a man for a long time." So it's kind of like you're married already. Stay strong Nelma.

But before any man reading this packs a case, buys a plane ticket, learns the Portuguese for "let's have some sex" ("Vamos ter um pouco de sexo"?) and sprays himself with 15 cans of Lynx, let's stop to think. Why is there a town with no men in it? Did they get really unlucky with the birthrate? Did the town's midwife used to work as a chicken sexer in China? Is the town hard to find and no man has ever stopped to ask directions?

The unusual settlement was founded by Maria Senhorinha de Lima, branded an adulterer and excommunicated after fleeing her forced marriage. Other women rejected by society joined her in isolation and the town with a "no male" policy was created. If you move to live there you have to work away in the week and only visit on the weekends. If you have any male children they are sent away at the age of 18. You know, sent away, just like what happened to the founder of the town, but for the crime of being male.

Yep, good luck with that single life. And give my love to the cats.
