Lies said about sex

23 October 2014, 13:53 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - At one point or another, we all lie about sex.

Both men and women.

It can range from the number of sexual partners, what we are into, to what we have already done. In African society, the woman is meant to be married a virgin, while according to religion, we are all meant to be chaste and virginal on our marriage night. But obviously none of these rules are being followed, considering the boom in the contraceptive industry as well as sex workshops.


Men lie about the number of partners they have had just so they can be identified as the alpha male within their peer groups and women lie about it so that they are not seen as too promiscuous.

All according to some stereotype that someone set up in the 19th century; a woman should have lesser partners than her man and the opposite should work for the man. But what if it is the total opposite. Let us assume it is your wedding night and because the both of you decided to ‘wait’ it is your first time. The man is the virgin, so does the woman teach the man. That could set the relationship up for a disastrous start since the woman will pick up on the fact that she is the lead and he the follower.

Is a man being alpha, to his female determined by the fact on how around town he has been? And does it make him lesser of a man if he has not. That is why we all lie. At the end of the day, we do not want the partner we are with to know how depraved we are or how we can be. You might have done a couple of things before with someone else but if she is a woman and she meets this staunch Christian man who is rather very rigid, obviously she will plead second virginity. He will baptize her a new and they will both move on to a life filled with a lot of sexual lies.

May lead to infidelity down the road, maybe not, but at one point or the other, one partner is always lying just to keep up with the current standards.

Do you lie, have you? Think about it.
