Young Men, Sex, and Urge Ownership (And Why It’s Not The Girl’s Problem)

Young men, I need to tell you something; something that maybe your fathers, or your coaches, or your uncles, or your buddies never told you, but something that you really need to hear.

Your sex drive? It’s your problem.

I know you’ve been led to believe that it’s the girl’s fault; the way she dresses, the shape of her body, her flirtatious nature, her mixed messages.

I know you’ve grown-up reading and hearing that since guys are really “visual”, that the ladies need to manage all of that by covering-up and keeping it hidden; that they need to drive this whole physical relationship deal, because we’re not capable.

That’s a load of crap.

You and me, we are visual.
We do love the shape of women’s bodies.
We are tempted and aroused by their physicality.

And all of that, is on us, not on them.

You see, we actually live…

Dominoes with Pros.

Dominoes with Pros.

On Monday, I covered a seniors citizens’ picnic.

Usually when I cover such events I’m behind the camera and have very little interaction with the seniors.

This time, I decided to engage with them a bit. I chose the wrong game to play with them-Domino.

If there’s one game Virgin Islanders know and love to play, it’s got to be dominoes.

I got some good trashing. These old people had no mercy on me. I managed to learn a trio or two after I lost more than 10 rounds.

Some organiser had to come beg them to let me win a game..lol What a shame.

Though I only won a few rounds, I was glad to have had the opportunity to mingle with the old ones. It was so refreshing hearing them talk about old times and how things used to be.

I may have walked away with a tad bit more wisdom than I had but, I learnt that I must never play domino with old folks again!

Coffee chicken

A reblog, sort of like a bookmark. I’m so going to try this…

DINNER BANK

To begin with, I have not gone mad, no more than usual anyway.
When you prepare this dish so spread a sweet fragrance throughout the house. The food when served, will disappear at once! Expect that your guests will be very surprised when they hear that they have used coffee as a spice. 🙂

“Are You Adding Weight?”

The photo with the green dress was the one He questions. and this super blurry one is of me before exercise this morning.

The photo with the green dress was the one He questioned. And this super blurry one is of me before exercise this morning.

Gentlemen and Ladies, Girls and Boys,

So, let us get this straight. There is a strong contender for the title of The Nigerian Husband, as a matter of fact, this contender has been around long before the Nigerian Husband made his first appearance on this blog…hahaha.

However, just like the Nigerian Husband is always busy preparing for the big family we are going to have, the contender as well, is always busy and hardly reads this blog, hence, I can put him on full blast here.

This morning, after the contender saw a photo I took over the weekend, this blunt son of a baptist didn’t think of anything flattering to say… What he said troubleshot me out of  my bed, straight into my work out clothes and set me running like a mad woman on the track.
“Are you adding weight?”

This one and only contender happens to be a contender for many reasons, one being his brutal honesty and inability to pretend or sugar coat things.

I made it to the track, ran a few 800-metre laps before joining the guys having aerobics.

It was tough, but I wasn’t about to back out. I had to/have to prove this contender that that weight will go away in no time.
I almost gave up twice during the parallel planks. What kept me going? I kept chanting “for the Nigerian Husband, for the Nigerian Husband.”

By the way, his question only pushed me because I’ve been feeling that way a lot lately and have had plans to exercising rigorously again. I’m not exercising so he stays or hang around longer. I’m exercising so I hang around longer and have a better life with him & the people I cherish the most.

The work out this morning was for the only contender for the title of The Nigerian Husband. Who and for what did you dedicate your exercise today to?

Have a great Tuesday folks, don’t forget live, love, laugh, fart, be silly, life is incredibly too short- Oshe! (Just because he says it a lot)Image
