Women Bungee-Jumpers Outnumber Men

Iranian female bungee-jumpers are braver than their male rivals.
A report on Iranfrontpage.com about the passionate interest of women in bungee jumping in Tehran quoted those in charge of the bungee jumping centers as saying that “female bungee jumpers outnumber men.”
A bungee-jumping trainer at Tehran’s Velayat Park says 80% of those who apply for a jump are women aged between 14 and 60, adding, “I have never seen a woman climb up the pole and then back off, but there have been many men who have gone back on their decision to bungee jump.”
The report referred to the mountain resort of Touchal and Velayat Park as two major centers for bungee jumping in the capital.
Unlike Velayat Park, it said, women are not allowed to bungee jump in Touchal’s 40-meter-high bungee jumping pole.
Velayat Park’s bungee-jumping center which allows women to jump off its 40-meter-high platform has succeeded to attract many tourists, the report said, according to IRNA.
Even the holiday resort of Ganjnameh in Hamedan, which is seen as the highest bungee-jumping pole in the Middle East, did not impose a ban on women keen on jumping off its 45- meter-high platform.
Managers of Touchal are now seeking to lift the ban on bungee jumping for women.
