Kenyan sex culture is boring

22 October 2014, 11:38 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - I have no idea what an orgasm is called in my mother tongue and I am pretty sure if I asked my mother she would give me a very dirty look because that is something you learn when you are married.

It is your husband’s job to teach you. Furthermore, I am also pretty sure that she does not know because her mother has never told her. Another thing, I do not think a word is there for it because I do know my mother tongue and no word has ever crossed me on what sex is even called.

I have heard of Ugandan sex aunties whom when you reach a certain age, they arm you with all the skills that you need to know before you get married. It is sort of their own camp for females like here in Kenya when boys reach a certain age they go for their initiation but I have never heard of it for girls.

If it is there then I am not aware. Maybe the women in the coast may have a thing or two but I have friends who have mothers from the coast I am yet to hear of them being called to such.

Then recently, I learned of a Rwandese cultural thing that truly fascinated me; gukuna and kunyara, there was something else, I just cannot remember but it made me envy them. I wanted to reverse time and go live in Rwanda because girls as young as eight are taught how they can better their sex lives even before they have it.

All these got me thinking how Kenyans treat sex as a taboo and we act like we are afraid of it. Yet I am sure we are really missing out. We act like bigwigs and know it all, but when it comes to sex, as an African country that prophesies on embracing culture, what do we have to offer that raises us a notch higher than the rest.

I am still searching among our forty two tribes on who may have some tricks up their sleeves but as of now my verdict is we are having very boring mediocre sex and I do envy the Rwandese, I really do.
