Justus Esiri Dead - Free Movie and President Jonathan's Tribute

Posted in: ,

Veteran Justus Esiri who started acting on stage in Germany since the late sixties died yesterday as announced by his son, Dr Sid. Justus Esiri's fame was launched widely from his role in the popular Nigerian TV series, the village headmaster where he played the title role.

I watched Village Headmaster and has always regarded Justus Esiri as one of the best that Nigeria has when it comes to acting. He will be sorely missed. Below is President Jonathan's tribute and a free movie from IrokoTV featuring Justus Esiri. May his soul rest in peace.

Do Nigerian Men Give their Women Oral?

Posted in: , , ,

I am tempted to add a Parental Guidance here, but this blog is about life, love and sex for adult women 18+ so no shaking. However, if you are sensitive, you may stop reading now. The question came up as I was discussing the post on 20 signs your man is into you with a friend, and the fact that I, as well as a few of the people who commented, hailed #9 which says that the guy has to be "a firm, enthusiastic believer in cunnilingus."

The friend was a bit sceptical about that particular point, saying it sounded un-Nigerian like one or two other tips in the list. They were insistent that Nigerian men do not give oral or "head", at least not in her opinion from all the Nigerian men she had met, read or heard speak about it.

Of course, I have also come across some blogs and forums where Nigerian men deny ever giving oral but I am one person that believes that cunny is universal, as are many other acts in sex. Yes o, as much as some Nigerian women are very sexually fulfilled by their Nigerian men, I put it to you that Nigerian men do it. LOL...

African Mothers, Their Daughters, Love and Marriage

Posted in: , ,

Below is a great article by China Okasi for CNN in which she asks African moms, especially those in diaspora or with daughters who are more educationally accomplished than their peers, to have patience with their daughters. In the article, she called out the fact that women don't have to dumb down to attract men, and how these days women want love, and not just marriage for the sake of it. I agree with her mostly, especially on the issue of respect and compatibility. But I know also that love is not a magic pill that guarantees a successful marriage. What do you think? Let's discuss!

Moms everywhere like to ask their unmarried daughters dreaded questions like: Why are you still single? Are you married yet? Anyone catch your eye? Especially around Valentine's Day.

Sure, we've seen Carrie Bradshaw agonize over the issue, watched Bridget Jones' awkwardness around it, heard Amelie's lamentations au Francais, and we've even heard from the lovable Mindy Kaling vis-a-vis her Indian-American perspective. But, we haven't heard the modern African woman's story.

Being an unmarried African woman in her childbearing years is like being a manicurist with a hand tremor: very odd and rather tricky. She is expected to marry early and marry well.

Have You Been Eating Horsemeat?

Posted in:

It has been in the news for several weeks now, and new details are revealed on a daily basis. I am talking about the media frenzy about the "Horsemeat Scandal" where it has been alleged and proven in some cases that horsemeat has been used fraudulently in processed meat products like sausages, mince and lasagne.

Usually beef, pork and chicken are the meats listed on such products but health officials and inspectors have found horse meat in them. So yeah, if you live in the UK and Europe, and you are a fan of processed meat, you may have eaten horsemeat. Tesco was my second shopping destination while I lived in the UK, so maybe I ate it back then, who knows?

I was discussing with some people and they said, so what? I mean, they say they don't mind eating horsemeat, after all people eat frogs, snails, kangaroo, alligator, dogs, monkey, snake etc. In Nigeria, if you don't know the source of the animal you're eating, you call it bushmeat :)
