    Kemi Lawal

    Once upon a time, these ladies enjoyed the comfort of matrimony. But for reasons best known to them, they became single again. Many years after, they are yet to find soul mates who will restore them to their former positions. Here are some of the most celebrated of the lot:

    - Biola Otufale

    Biola Otufale is an epitome of beauty. Her striking looks and alluring physique is one that gives her away easily. You can't miss her in a crowd. 

    Her charm however failed to prevent her crashed marriage. She used to be married to an Ijebu born chief, Otunba Kayode Otufale.

    - Nikki Khiran

    One of Lagos finest fashion designers, Nikki Khiran is a testimony in beauty. Well endowed, the amiable woman is one of several known faces who are enjoying spinsterhood again.

    - Enitan Bamigboye

    Yet another pretty face, Enitan Bamigboye used to be married to former military administrator, Colonel Theophilus Bamigboye. The marriage which was assumed to be made-in-heaven, lasted a few years before the duo went their separate ways; to the consternation of those privy to the union.

    - Adaobi Nwakuche

    Adaobi Nwakuche's wedding to Fred Nwaeme was characterised by fanfare. A no-expense-spared celebration, it had all the trappings of glamour and was discussed openly long after it was hosted. 

    The marriage suffered several hiccups that led to its eventual demise barely three years after it was first contracted. While the latter has remarried, the former is still savouring the gains of spinsterhood.

    - Bobby Taylor

    Not many people know that American returnee and public relations expert, Bobby Taylor, used to be married. A mother of one, the vivacious entrepreneur is single and not searching. 

    Already an item with Gogo Karibi-Whyte, who was widowed some years ago, there are indications that the duo are considering tying the knots again, judging by amount of time they spend together.

     - Rosemary Okeke

    A former beauty queen, Rosemary Okeke remains one of Nigeria's most popular former beauty queens. Already in her 40s, Okeke used to be married to Adekunle Wright. 

    The union, which produced a child, hit the rocks after efforts to salvage it did not yield fruit. Efforts to contract a second marriage has not yielded much.

    - Biola Okoya

    Beautiful and stylish, Biola Okoya is the most celebrated daughter of Alhaji Rasaq Okoya of the Eleganza fame. 

    Previously married to Akinwande Johnson, not only is Okoya yet to remarry many years after her first marriage ended, she has also shunned the limelight for up to three years, which has raised eyebrows.

    - Deola Sagoe

    Another gifted designer, Deola Sagoe, is one of Nigeria's finest creative minds. A wave making clothier, her immense talents failed to come in handy when it mattered most. A lot of people received with shock the crisis that rocked her union with Kofi Sagoe. 

    While it is not known if the union has been officially annulled by the court of law, the duo, however do not co-habit again.

    - Funke Kuti

    No one envisaged that Funke Kuti, the estranged wife of Afro beat prince, Femi Kuti, would one day have a crashed marriage. A former dancer in his band, all was well, or so it seemed, until the cracks in their union became visible. 

    The duo have lived apart for several years and are currently in court seeking dissolution of their marriage.

    - Gbemisola Saraki

    A governorship candidate in Kwara State at the last election, Gbemisola Saraki is the daughter of Dr Olusola Saraki. A mother of three, she used to be married to Segun Fowora. The marriage ended more than five years ago and she has remained single ever since.

    - Edith Jibunoh

    One of the daughters of Dr Newton Jibunoh, Edith Jibunoh's marriage to Stan Rerri was short-lived to the utmost surprise of many who witnessed it. The couple parted ways less than a year after the wedding was contracted and Rerri is reported to have found his missing

  • I never believed I would be anything in life - Mr Ibu

    11/Mar/2017 // 269 Viewers

     

    John Okafor, popularly known as Mr. Ibu is very popular in the movie industry. Having acted in numerous movies, his style of hilarious acting has endeared him to many having started behind the camera as a continuity manager. Not many know that he was once a hairdresser and boxer. In this chat with SAMUE ABULUDEL, the native of Enugu State who started his acting career decades ago, shares his pains and gains as an actor and as a fat.

    Are you lively at home?

    My children are even funnier. We play a lot like kids. The boy and small girl always ask me questions, while my wife too is funny.

    How would you describe your success story?

    I never believed I would be anything in life, but God has been there for me. I always advise people to be patient. If you are fasting and praying, and there is nothing to show for it, do not panic or rush to a native doctor. Everyone has a destination, but we have to be patient. My being here was prepared by God, though I went through a lot in my life too. I once trekked from Ajao Estate to Festac in Lagos. Do you know that there was a time I had prepared to kill myself? I wanted to jump inside the well, because of the situations around me. Three days before then, I had not eaten and there was no hope of getting food for the next one week. I was just drinking water and I hate it when I bother people. In Lagos, I had lived under a truck. I cleaned up the place neatly, used carton as my bed. Those people who were my close friends were not bothered about my situation. I left that spot when over 30 dogs were barking on a particular night. Nobody could sleep in that area and I had to run for my life. Later a friend, Frank, who was staying at 125 Adetola Street in Surulere at a time, called me to come stay in his house. He was travelling to Germany. He told me that I should leave anywhere I was staying in Lagos and come over to his house.
    I first declined the offer, telling him that I might serve as an inconvenience to him. I did not want to give him the impression that I was desperate, even though I needed where to stay. I went to bring my property from where I kept it outside; I told him I planned to travel before he called me. I was just telling lies. He later gave me a room in his flat.

    Despite your funny look, you’ve made a name in the industry. What works for you?

    It depends on the department you are working. When it comes to comedy, your look does not really count. All you need is to be able to interpret the character given to you. I have been stereotyped into comedy and everyone knows this, though it does not mean I cannot do other things. But how do my fans react to it if I play other roles? So, all I do now is acting comedy, talking comedy and singing comedy.

    Would you agree that your music career is dead?

    I am still doing music, but I lost a friend, Dede One Day. We were doing music together but he died at a programme he was hosting. Since I started my music life with him, it is just right to give him that respect. I have decided to take a year break to honour him.

    At what point did you become a hairdresser?
    That was before I came to Lagos. I used to be a boxer too when I was in Sapele in Delta State. I stopped fighting after I was seriously beaten in the ring. Being the heavyweight champion in my club, I confronted another heavyweight champion. You need to see how he dealt with me as if he was sent to kill me. Even though I was begging him, he did not stop and we were not fighting for any prize. I had to jump out of the ring, when I could not bear the beating the anymore.

    What pushed you into boxing since there was no money in it?
    It was just for the fun of it. I liked boxing then. I did all sorts of menial jobs. I was also a photographer at a time, they called us ‘wait and get.’ When I applied to work in a saloon, they gave me opportunities. Since I had learnt how to make hair before, it was easy for me to introduce different styles. California coil just came out then but I improved on it in that saloon. I introduced rough coil and a lot of other styles. I still create styles for my wife and she goes to the saloon to make them.

    Why have you not opened a beauty business since you know about it?
    Beauty business! Do I look good? I am now married and my wife can go into it. I opened that for her but when I moved out of Satellite Town to my house in Lekki, Lagos, she stopped. She will continue the same business.

    How have you been able to move on easily considering that you lost your father and five members of your family almost at the same time to poison and you also lost a son 6 years ago?

    The most painful one was my son’s death. When my wife, two of my in-laws and my son were kidnapped in Enugu, they stayed 10 days in the bush. They were later released after I settled the kidnappers. But there was this acute pneumonia that struck my son and gave him liver inflammation. I took him to the hospital, Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH) but the carelessness of the people at the Department of Pediatrics was a major reason he died. They needed blood and luckily for me one of my boys could donate. They said I was under tension, so they could not take from me. They collected two pints of blood even though they needed one.  Before they could use the blood on him, they said they needed to do a screening and they started given different excuses until it became late. They told me there was no light and they needed to get approval from the head of department, among others. A nurse later advised me to have the screening done outside before it was too late. I still needed to write application to that same department, which I did. He took the application upstairs but as we were coming down after all sorts of delay, I saw that the head nurse’s face had changed. I asked what the matter was and she told me I should not run around again. She said if the blood had come in 5 minutes ago, we would have saved him. My biggest problem was how to console my wife and what to tell her. I left LUTH without her and asked them to bring her to Villa Park at FESTAC, Lagos. When she saw me, she was furious and kept asking about her son. I tried to hide the news. I tried to hold myself together as a man, but tears dropped. That was enough for her and she was flat on the ground. It took the help of people around to hold her down before she inflicted more injuries on herself.

    Was there an apology at the hospital after the unfortunate incidence?
    When we went to LUTH to collect his body the next morning, the head, Pediatrics, called me.  Apparently he had been looking for me since the day my son died and he wanted a favour. He told me that they needed my son’s body to teach other young doctors. I looked around and I saw that there was no one. I told him that if he had told me this yesterday (the day he died), he would have regretted the day he was born. I just concluded that they cared less because they wanted the body for studies. I deliberately left the body there that day too and gave a word that if there was any cut on my son, I would burn the hospital and kill myself.

    How did you console your wife?

    I told her to always look at my face. I tried to laugh even when situation was tough for me. I reminded her of how beautiful she was and that she could still have plenty children. She believed me, she actually made four children but two died.

    Why do you always put your wife on social media?

    My mother told me a lot of things and it was an orientation that I got from her. She told me that women should be respected. I am one who respects women so much. It is a sin to beat women and I have never tried it. There is this connectivity between a man and woman; they are connected to us spiritually. When you beat a woman, you beat your joy, peace, success and business. You should always praise your wife; buy things to make her happy, because her happiness grows your business.

    How did you meet your wife?

    The situation we found ourselves in brought us together. She had a boyfriend and I knew, but they had an issue. There was a message the guy sent to her and she cried for two days. It stated, “Never you ever call my number or come close to me either outside or in my home. If you try it, I would leave a mark on you.” When she showed me the message, I told her that I would replace him and do even better. We then met somewhere in Port Harcourt; she knew I was coming and wanted to see me. Since it was late, she could not go home; she had to spend the night with me. Do you know that they do not leave yam and goat in a place? That was how she got pregnant.

    How do you deal with temptation from other women?

    The issue of replacement is impossible, because my wife is still there. I can always be friends with women, but I am mature enough to know where to draw.

  • Pete Edochie very angry, speaks again, reveals annoying secrets

    13/Aug/2016 // 1123 Viewers

     

    PARIS, AUGUST 13, 2016: (DGW) Renowned Nollywood actor, Pete Edochie, has again spoken to Nigerians resulting from the fraudulent activities of people who presumably want to drag his name through the mud.

    The actor, DailyGlobeWatch gathered,  has lamented the number of social media accounts being opened in his name.

    Pete Edochie said he does not run any social media account but often surprised to see so many which have been opened by fraudsters in his name.

    The actor while speaking exclusively to PUNCH said it has become necessary for him to speak out to enable his numerous fans and non-fans alike know what is on the ground.

    His words: 

    “From time to time, you would hear or read that Pete Edochie died in London or on location. In our culture, if people wish you dead, you’d attend the person’s funeral. I’m satisfied with what life has given me. I don’t envy anybody and I don’t want to be anybody. I just want to be left alone as Pete Edochie.

    “Right now, I’m watching football in my house, but as I speak to you, some people are posting on Facebook or Twitter, using my name and picture.

    “There was a day I was sitting in my house and I started receiving messages of sympathy, that they heard my son had an accident and died while on set. I just took my phone and called him, and he told me he was on location, shooting a movie. He came to my house when he finished, whereas people had spread wrong information around.

    “It’s either they are talking about politics, state of the nation, ascribing series of proverbs to me or using my name to counsel people about marriage. Someone asked me how I had time to put plenty proverbs on Facebook. I told the person I wasn’t responsible for them and that I didn’t even have a Facebook account, and she couldn’t believe it.


    “Some people said I sat with Mourhino in one of the profile pictures and that I was telling him the gods were angry with him. Then, they posted another one that Buhari came to consult with me in my shrine.

    “Somebody woke me up a few days ago and pointed my attention to what was written in my name about (Senator Ike) Ekweremadu. I was surprised. I don’t know him neither do I have any issue with him. Again, few days ago, it was also posted that Federal Government needed me for something. All the nonsense people write about me, I’m not happy about it.

    “I’m not a politician, and I am not the only actor in this country. Throughout the campaign during the last general election, I didn’t campaign for anybody, yet on the social media you see people using my name to express support for one candidate or the other.

    “I speak very good English, and those posting those things in my name write in the way I can never write. That is the saving grace. Just recently, someone informed me that he saw somewhere in my name that I wrote on one of these platforms that people should come and pay N50, 000, as according to them, I was organising a programme. What programme?

    “If you begin to reply to all of that false information about you, you will make it a habit, and so anytime you don’t issue a disclaimer on a particular post, they assume you are the one speaking.

    “Somebody told me he saw in the newspaper that my wife supported me when I started acting and that I divorced her when I started making money and I started running after a girl whom they said I bought a car for. In the post, they even put the number plate of the car, and that happened to be my wife’s car.

    “During the Valentine’s Day, I was in my house, but they wrote on the social media that I was in Lagos. They said they wanted to interview me, they knocked on the door but l was busy inside. Again, there was a time a boy from Kenya wrote on Facebook that I was his father. How is that possible? The boy did not even say where I met his mother,” the actor wondered.

  • 5 Signs That Point Out Your Spouse Doesn’t Love You Anymore

    13/May/2016 // 332 Viewers

     

    For many couples, it can be exciting to begin a life together after falling in love. Unfortunately, it can be easy to suffer from difficult times or become busy with careers and daily responsibilities. When you’re wondering how stable your marriage is, there are a few signs that your spouse has fallen out of love.

    5 Signs That Point Out Your Spouse Doesn’t Love You Anymore

    1. Less Quality Time

    Your relationship may have started out strong by spending every waking moment together, but you now may only spend a few minutes with your spouse each day. Your significant other may not make an effort to schedule date nights or even sit down together for dinner. If you notice that your spouse is too busy or preoccupied to have quality time, it may be a sign that they no longer have the same feelings for you.

    You may also notice a lack of gifts or surprises that you receive compared to the earlier years that you spent together. This may mean that your partner doesn’t want to make the effort to allow you to feel loved due to a change in their feelings. You may even receive generic gifts on your birthday or anniversary.

    2. A Lack of Eye Contact

    Your partner may have a difficult time making eye contact with you when you’re talking to one another, which could mean that they’re not listening or don’t care about having communication with you. A lack of communication can easily cause the relationship to crumble over time and make it easy to feel distant from one another.

    Your spouse may also not want to make eye contact with you because they may be hiding an addiction or an affair. This can often hint that they are no longer in love with you and don’t want to share personal struggles or issues that they’re dealing with.

    3. You Don’t See Change

    Most couples have different issues that they work through in marriage, whether it’s trying to make time for one another or having a lack of trust. For those who may be in a loveless marriage, it can be easy to see a lack of improvement with how your spouse grows in your relationship with one another. You may feel as if you’re always nagging for your spouse to change without seeing much effort. The other person may not seem as if they want to help the marriage thrive and may not seem to be worried if the relationship stays intact.

    4. A Change in the Physical Appearance

    You may notice that your spouse begins to have a change in their appearance as you grow distant from one another. They may have gained weight in recent months or are no longer making an effort with dressing up to impress you. Men may neglect to shave throughout the week or styling their hair while women may avoid putting as much makeup on. This can mean they are no longer worried about your attraction to their appearance.

    5. You Don’t Get a Response

    When you’re in love, it can be easy to send text messages or receive phone calls throughout the day with your spouse without waiting very long. You may notice that your spouse no longer answers your phone calls or doesn’t return them at all. Any text messages that you send may also not be returned promptly. It can be easy to feel as if you’re always waiting by the phone or are double-checking your text messages to see if the other person cares.

    Marriages are prone to enduring different seasons and changes throughout the years. Many people are able to survive challenging times and still remain in love while others lose interest in the relationship. When you’re questioning how your spouse truly feels about you, there are a few signs to look for to read between the lines. -www.englandlove.co.uk

  • If He Asks You THESE 5 Questions- He’s Amazing in Bed

    13/May/2016 // 472 Viewers

     

     
    Most modern relationship-help guides focus on communication, but rarely do these texts delve into how important communication is when it comes to physical closeness. While relationship advice tends to focus on conflict resolution, perhaps more focus should go into communication concerning the act of lovemaking.
     
    Men and women who take the time to communicate with their partners about closeness are better lovers because they are concerned about the happiness of their partners. Some partners avoid asking these questions or feel awkward talking about such a private act. In fact, one therapist recently revealed on her blog that some of her patients admitted to being comfortable talking to her about lovemaking, but not to their partners! Even though it can be difficult or even embarrassing to talk about such a private matter, it can only benefit you if you know what your partner likes and doesn’t like. In fact, knowing these things honors your partner and can deepen your committed relationship. People who are comfortable with their partners and confident in their lovemaking will often ask the following questions to ensure that their partner is happy with their physical relationship:
     
    1. What are some of your most-liked physical experiences and what did you like so much about those experiences?
     
    A man who asks this question is showing that he is open-minded and is happy to recreate his partner’s best experiences. When answering this, think back on your experience with lovemaking, and remember which moments you remember as the most satisfying. When someone asks you this question, they are showing that they are comfortable enough to ask about your entire history and are more concerned with your needs than his or her ego. This person is ready to find out what you enjoy and make sure you are happy. You may need time to answer this question, so feel free to take time to answer. You may even wish to take the time to write down your experiences before you share them.
     
    2. What does your idea of a perfect !nt!mate relationship look like?
     
    When your partner asks you this question, try to think about the following: frequency that you would enjoy closeness, what kinds of acts you would enjoy performing, and how emotional you would like your sessions to be. Having an idea of what kind of physical relationship you would like to have ensures that you are ready to ask for that kind of relationship.
     
    3. What do you like about your current physical relationship?
    Because people are often embarrassed to talk to one another about their needs, couples are often surprised by their partner’s answer to this question. Even if you and your partner have been together for a long period of time, he or she won’t know what they are doing right unless you tell them!
     
    4. Is there anything you would like to do more together?
    If your girlfriend or wife takes the time to ask you this question, do not be afraid to answer! It’s good to talk about the specific physical acts you would like to enjoy with your partner. Talking about this will help you and your partner to find out what you enjoy together, and trying something new or revisiting a favorite experience can only bring you closer.
     
    5. Is there anything new you would like to try?
    It is unfortunate that we often feel uncomfortable expressing our desires to our partner. Be open and honest when answering this question. You’ll never know if you’d like a certain physical act unless you try it!
     
    Remember that when answering the above questions, you should use “I” statements as much as possible so that your partner is sure to get the most honest answers from you. Don’t be embarrassed or feel awkward! Adults with a healthy romantic life shouldn’t feel any shame in expressing their thoughts and feelings about closeness with their partners. In fact, feeling comfortable about lovemaking makes it more enjoyable. If your partner asks you any of the above questions, you have a keeper!

  • I'm naturally endowed, my butt is natural - Super Yoruba actress, Biodun Okeowo lashes out at critics

    13/Nov/2016 // 496 Viewers

     

    Super Yoruba actress, Biodun Okeowo, aka Tolani Oshirin, has come out to debunk rumours that her butt is not natural.

    The curvy mother of two while addressing journalists at a recent event refutes the report, claiming her butt is a God-given asset, “My butt is very real, it’s given to me by God. It is not a crime flaunting what you got!

    I have never done any butt enlargement and I don’t wear butt-pads, for what? I am so endowed naturally. Most of those who peddle these rumours are people who have never met me in person before, they see you from a distance and conclude on your person, I don’t really blame them” she said.

    The light skinned actress also addressed issues concerning negative comments on her social media page, “I am a very free and playful person but I think there is this mentality that Nigerians have about dressing.

    They believe you can’t dress the way you like. But I am an advocate of ‘dress in whatever you are comfortable in.’ If I feel like rocking my bikini, I will do just that without minding whatever people are saying.

    When next I travel to Miami, I am going to rock my bikini. As for the comments on Instagram, sometimes, I laugh and at other times I just respond but I don’t sound bitter or angry. I reply playfully and make my point that they have no right to judge me” she quipped.

Those were the hitherto known reason shoppers go for the vegetable in the market.

    However, it would appear that cucumber has a more interesting attraction for some women. The use of cucumber among ladies for sexual plays instead of the male sexual organ has been on the increase, which makes ladies who wish to buy the plant for the sake of making salad or for some other health benefits, a suspect of lesbianism and other sexual rascality. This, perhaps, have be seen as cheap alternative or replacement for manhood and popular sex toys.

    Recent discovery has proved that people who eat cucumbers, bananas, carrots and hot dogs among others, are actually eating potential sex toys. The popular vegetable is now the commonest item found among women for penetrative plays.

    Before now, cucumber is viewed as a vegetable fruit mainly eaten raw or used in making salad but today, such vegetables is found more useful by women for more intimate functions and instrument for sexual satisfaction.

    Therefore, eat a cucumber in a lady’s refrigerator could just be a sex toy. Sequel to this disclosure, some ladies are beginning to shy away from buying cucumber in order not to be touted lesbians.

    “After hearing Chidinma’s scandal, when I went to the popular Mile 12 Market in Lagos to buy salad items for my friend’s child dedication, I was forced to buy in large quantity, more than what I needed, just to clear any suspicion that I might be using it for sexual purposes,” said Ray Ojugo, a house wife. The suspicion was more when it dawn on Nigerians that women now use cucumber as a sex toys.

    The video that went viral in the social media, showing a Nigerian’s beauty queen, Chidinma Okeke, and her friends Ada, in ‘cucumber sex action’ has also increased this suspicion.

    Also, a female student of the University of Nigeria, Nsukka (UNN) was caught trying to do a quickie on herself with a small cucumber recently. But the plant broke in the course of the action and stuck inside her private part. When she cried out for help as she bled profusely, she was rushed to the medical centre, where doctors demanded consent of her parents before a surgery could be done to remove the piece of cucumber in her vagina.

    Instead of waiting to be treated, she ran away from the hospital. But the big question here is ‘does cucumber give the same sexual desire as penis?

    Does a toy or vibrator supply the same desire, which is the reason for sex in the first place? What do people think the role of sex is, when it seems sometimes, a battery operated vibrator and refrigerated cucumber would do?

    Ibidunmi Ajare said cucumber gives some degree of satisfaction, especially when the user has sexual desire and there is no one available to assist. She noted that, even sex therapists tell people to use cucumbers in the absence of vibrators as a temporal relief. She said, “I used to have the impression that sex doesn’t really have any particular meaning in the life of human beings.

    My earlier thought about sex was just about getting fantasy. “Though I have not used any of the sex toys before, I know a friend who uses banana and cucumber. She stays for several months without the desire to have sex with a man after using her toys.

    So, I believe it gives her the satisfaction she needs most of the time. “So, sex has all sorts of meanings to different people at different times. I guess it would be better to ask what sexual acts mean to people individually, rather then what it meant in general.” Corroborating her comment, Brander Johnson, said though she hasn’t used cucumber before, she knows of a person, who uses cucumber for penetrative plays. “Cucumber may offer some level of satisfaction since it comes in different sizes and shapes.

    Those who desire big or small sizes will surely get one. “It sounds as if I’m freak here. I’m very sexual but I didn’t always have the option of buying sex toys. I heard about it in modern culture and since I was naive and ignorant, I thought I would give it a go. But as I had suspected, it didn’t work at all. Eventually, I managed to get my hands on some actual sex toys and all was well,” she added.

    I need the real ‘stuff’

    But on the contrary, while she was asked to make a choice between real ‘stuff’ (manhood) and cucumber for sexual satisfaction, Rachael Agiri said, “Why should I prefer cucumber? Cucumber is not human and never does w h a t human can do. With cucumber, you are helping yourself out while with the real thing, someone is helping you to get satisfaction.

    “I have never used it and I don’t intend to do so. I can’t say which gives better satisfaction but for me, I prefer the real thing. With the real thing, you can get to orgasm over and over again.

    When married couples have sexual intercourse, the sexual satisfaction is written all over the woman. This can’t be compared with the fulfillment from the artificial cucumber plant.

    “Vibrator is even better but the disadvantage is that you could find it difficult to reach orgasm, than when you are with a man. The reason is that with a vibrator, you can go on and on because it’s a machine but while with a man, he gets tired easily, that is why some sex crazy ladies have turned sex maniacs following the prolonged use of sex toys.” She noted that those who indulge in regular use of sex toys are in most cases tired of men and their deceitful ways.”

    Before cucumber became the order of the day, most women try to penetrate themselves, using banana, carrot, sizable bottles, especially the container of Cuba perfume, at least, once in their lives. The situation didn’t start today but cucumber seems to be offering different sizes. Some have big bananas in their refrigerators, perhaps, for the same reason.”

    In general, a sex therapist, Dr. Blair Adejumo, said: “Since we can’t rule it out, then, if you are going to improvise a sex toy, make sure you pick an item that is smooth with no sharp point or sharp edge that won’t break nor shatter under intense pressure resulting from persistent stroking. This should go without saying, but please, only use an item that solely belongs to you.

    “If the cucumber is used as a sex toy, it should be disposed after use or at the very least, it should not be put anywhere where someone else would pick it up and make a salad out of it. Cucumbers, vibrators and other sex toys give an escape, a release, but in the big picture, it doesn’t come close to the feeling of shared emotion that comes  from intimacy with the opposite sex. “With sex toys, you are in control of how it plays out, with a partner, there is that ‘unknown’ fact that turns the tables.”

    My husband bought me a vibrator

    A young mother, Jackie Agbankanise, whose marriage is just three years, said her husband bought her a vibrator and warned her against the use of any other sex toys…including another man.

    Jackie, who is married to Jamike, said she was dumbfounded when her husband, who lives in the United States, came back with a vibrator. “Unbelievable, my husband came back and handed over a vibrator to me. He told me that my persistent desire to be with him made him to buy me a vibrator. It was funny but that was my husband for you.

    He wanted me to be faithful to our marital vows. He prefers me to use sex toys than to meet another man, but I have never used any sex toys before. I don’t know how it works.”

    Cucumber, carrot, banana can hurt vaginal lining – Medical experts

    In the words of Dr. Perry Iloegbunam, with sharp frictions, cucumber and any of these improvised sex toys can really hurt the delicate vaginal lining. It’s therefore, not safe to use any of these improvised sex toys. Cucumber, especially cannot withstand pressure when the lady is on top of the game. It can break right inside there and will require a clinical surgery for it to be removed.

    He added: “Of course, there is the case of sexually transmitted diseases and infections. Cucumber has some chemical compounds in it that will not be tolerant to the walls of the vagina. Carrot is worse of it all, as the friction and pressure makes it to peel inside the body.

    “Please do not stick fruits or vegetable plants in your vagina.

    Even if you clean such objects, you should not put plant down inside. Ever peeps on medical information will tell you just to put a condom on it, but you know what else you could do? Get a vibrator instead of wasting a perfectly good cucumber meant for a salad.”

    Speaking on the same side effects, Dr. David Sobel said, “First, if you are worried about sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), you must be rest assured that you can’t get an STD from masturbation.

    Masturbation in and of itself, does not cause disease. That is to say it’s still a good idea to avoid irritating and hurting your genital area when you masturbate. “I encourage you to wash your hands before and after touching yourself, and don’t put anything sharp or dirty near your vagina or anus. You should always be careful with those parts of your body but you don’t need to be afraid to explore your body.

    It’s healthy and normal to touch yourself. “Many ladies, who go for cucumber  and other improvised plants, do that because they are cheaper than vibrators. It’s also available at all times and people will not suspect any person who buys cucumber in the market. ”

    There are many different reasons that people use sex toys. Some people use them for lack of a sexual partner or because their partner is not able to satisfy them. The pleasure from sex toys is different from that of a partner however, so many people also use them to get both and not only one of them, for example, during sexual intercourse vibrators are used additionally.

    However, not only the females use cucumber as sex toys. Men who use it as sex toys shop for the biggest and fattest cucumber, cut it in half, scoop out the seeds to accommodate the hard-on and plunge right in!
