(A not so funny) Joke Of The Day on Sex and The Wife.

The text from the picture below is suppossedly an extract from a sex education school textbook for girls, printed in the 50s or 60's to help women to enjoy sex with their husband and keep their home.

It reads:

Once he has had a chance to have his evening meal clear the dishes and wash up promptly. If your husband should offer to help decline his offer as he may feel obliged to repeat this offer and after a long working day he does not need the extra work.

Encourage your husband to pursue his hobbies and interests and be supportive without seeming to encroach. If you have any little hobbies yourself try not to bore him speaking of these, as women's interests are often rather trivial compared to men's.

At the end of the evening tidy the home ready for the morning and again think ahead to his breakfast needs. Your husband's breakfast is vital if he is to face the outside world in a positive fashion.

When retiring to the bedroom, prepare yourself for bed as promptly as possible. Whilst feminine hygiene is of the utmost importance, your tired husband does not want to queue for the bathroom, as he would have to do for his train. But remember to look your best when going to bed. 

Try to achieve a look that is welcoming without being obvious. If you need to apply face-cream or hair-rollers wait until he is asleep as this can be shocking to a man last thing at night.

When it comes to the possibility of intimate relations with your husband it is important to remember your marriage vows and in particular your commitment to obey him. If he feels that he needs to sleep immediately then so be it. In all things be led by your husband's wishes; do not pressure him in any way to stimulate intimacy. 

Should your husband suggest congress then agree humbly all the while being mindful that a man's satisfaction is more important than a woman's. When he reaches his moment of fulfilment a small moan from yourself is encouraging to him and quite sufficient to indicate any enjoyment that you may have had.

Should your husband suggest any of the more unusual practices be obedient and uncomplaining but register any reluctance by remaining silent. It is likely that your husband will then fall promptly asleep so adjust your clothing, freshen up and apply your night-time face and hair care products. 

You may then set the alarm so that you can arise shortly before him in the morning. This will enable you to have his morning cup of tea ready when he awakes.

However the actual source of this text and the authenticity thereof is yet to be verified. 

What's your take on this? How much difference are things now from the way they used to be? Really think about it. 

Just this afternoon I experienced sexism at its worst and it left me feeling baffled, saddened and cheated. And to think that some female(s) actually assisted in perpetuating it, because 'a man is more superior' was all the more baffling. I was speechless, still am. 

I stole the text from Myne Whitman's blog;  (This is the second time today. I know.... *covers face*.) 


  1. Ko jor. That's all I have to say

  2. It will be a joke in 2014 but probably fits the lifestyles of many married folks back in those days. On that basis, I find nothing wrong with it.
    In the year 2080 AD, the world would probably be mostly inhabited by gay people and being straight could be viewed differently. Hope you get the gist? Whatever was done back in the days fits the prevailing circumstances of the time.

  3. Hahaha I just can't...... Oshisco

  4. Dts hw dis afternoon my brother told me dat am a girl so I should 4get masters and just look 4 a job and work...I mean wat d actual so ashamed dt my blood brother said dat...don't know d kind of mentality he jst tired of pple putting women down all d fucking annoying..because sum1 is female she shuldnt further her education...God ppunish satan.mtchwwwww

  5. Should your husband suggest congress.... Ha! It sounds like a man wrote it but I am pretty sure a woman did. Forget about you and your needs because you are nothing.

  6. Chei, I have laughed so hard my tummy is red.... this is worse than basketmouth & Bovis jokes put together oh!!!

    This person described is even worse than the wives in the days of Abraham, Isaac & Jacob!!!

  7. Lol its funny but then again, not so funny. But really, I think girls have it tougher sadly. Even among the very highlr educated parents, u still have many who take the boy child more seriously and favour them over and above the girl child. That really scares me. So its defo sumthin that has really eaten deep into society. But this article above tho, bullocks to me cuzz it means the womans feelings and opinions don't count. That shdnt be.

  8. wonderful................

  9. it hasn't one bit. my bf n I had a date yesterday. we were supposed to go somewhere n have fun. but he called to cancel as a relation of his is really sick n needs his help. i kindly accepted n rescheduled my weekend.only for him to cal me n tel me we could meet tomorrow n spend d rest of d weekend together. when i declined as i already had something important lined up,he flew into anger saying am ambitious,am miss dis,am miss dat n i'm allowing our relarionship to suffer. i just ignored him. d tin s dat so he is allowed to be busy n i'm not? according to him if we get married,is this how i'll b too busy for d home? well,i'm still busy with my schedule(meetings n seminars). he just has to swallow his chauvinism n accept me dis way. afterall,i didnt complain when he dropped his bombshell. just wondering wen we'll ever achieve gender equality.

    1. Gender equality? When even the holy books clearly discourage it? We have a really long way to go with that and I wonder if we will ever get there.

    2. it's what i always say, are we gonna ever get there?

  10. I should not moan load? When even goat dey shout gaaan when doing it.
    This piece must have been written in the 17th Century prim and proper england.
    Should my husband suggest congress? Which one is dis one ni?
    Anyway, the piece was hilarious.

  11. I want to think that the book would be a classic then because as at then, women were mostly full-time house wives and husbands made absolute financial provision for the families. The only 'job' the women had was attending the needs of members of the family albeit 'robotically'. Didn't most of our mothers/grandmothers pass through these?

    Things are however changing now (not changed as we still have some men who have 'colonial mentality'). I cannot contribute to the family purse (even if it is disproportionately) and be expected to do all those. Roles are changing.......

  12. This extract is a written narration of Julia's Robert's Monalisa Smile. Where high school students were encouraged to get married, make sure dinner was ready at five and so on. And their utmost desire was to own their own kitchen and washing machine, like say na ambition.
    ''Encourage your husband to pursue his hobbies and interests and be supportive without seeming to encroach. If you have any little hobbies yourself try not to bore him speaking of these, as women's interests are often rather trivial compared to men's.'' In otherwords, you live and breathe through your husband after marriage, and your own hobby has to be little. Abi I never moan ni.

  13. I am amazed by you ladies antagonistic utterances to this lovely write up and i am sorry to say that this is why we have so many divorces now compared to the olden days. My advice to you ladies is that please follow this advice and you will have a peaceful home and a husband that will adore and worship you.

Turia Pitt Suffered 65% Burns But Loved Conquered All...

Amazing Story Shared by Dr. Ben Carson on Facebook, i thought it is inspiring and i decided to share;

The Australian ex-model Turia Pitt suffered burns to 65 per cent of her body, lost her fingers and thumb on her right hand and spent five months in hospital after she was trapped by a grassfire in a 100 kilometre ultra-marathon in the Kimberley. Her boyfriend decided to quit his job to care for her recovery. 
Days ago, in an interview for CNN they asked him:
"Did you at any moment think about leaving her and hiring someone to take care of her and moving on with your life?"

His reply touched the world:

"I married her soul, her character, and she's the only woman that will continue to fulfill my dreams."

This made me very reflective. I just wonder; if the person you love today encounters an incident or accident that transforms who they are physically, it could be amputation, it could be paralysis, it could be severe burns that scald their flesh beyond recognition, w…


Good morning people! 
Just checking in to sign the register. Lol. It's been a very busy week and it looks like it might be an even busier weekend. I was hoping to get some writing done when I got to the airport yesterday but I even almost missed my flight. It was hopeless trying to do any work on the plane as it was bumpy af, and this toddler behind me wouldn't stop screaming in piercing shrieks like he was being exorcised. 
I got into town pretty late and needed to keep an appointment ASAP. I'm heading out right now and it's going to be a long day, but thought I should drop this first. 
Have a splendid day. Im'ma be back soon.

He was my coursemate, crush, then my boyfriend.... he was super
intelligent, smart, tall, dark and handsome. Believe me he got
swag, but he didn't seem to notice me. (I'm a nerd but a sassy one
if I say so myself).  So oneday I decided to take it to another level..
After listening to a song "IF YOU LOVE SOMEBODY TELL THEM THAT YOU
LOVE THEM and watching the season film of The Secret Life of
American Teenagers. ..when Amy Jeugerns mum told her "you are only
young once". LOL that part got me.
Hope you know what i mean?

Though I'm okay with chemistry class I approached him to coach me for
the Quiz that was coming up, we found out that we had this
great chemistry between us.. hehehe both the covalent and
electrovalent bonds....

So one thing led to another till one unusual Saturday. I invited
him to my house and he came. The guy got swag, he even came
with a packet of durex condom.
We talked for a while and and and and and and
See how you are serious dey read this story....!


A side chick is commonly known as a mistress or a woman that’s romantically involved with a man who is in a committed relationship.  However after doing some reflecting, I realize that’s not the only type of side chick.  I want to discuss “the new side chick”–a woman who decides to stay by a man’s side after he has expressed his lack of relationship intentions with her through his words or actions.  So many women have made this mistake at least once in their lifetime, and unfortunately I’ve done the same thing. I like to think of the new side chick as an appetizer.  You’re there just to satisfy the immediate appetite of the man, but as soon as that mouth-watering entrée comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrée is what he really wanted; he went to the restaurant to order steak, not hot wings.  You were just a placeholder, fling, temporary commitment, or  maybe even just a “good ol time” until what he really wanted was presented to hi…


I'm in an amebo mood tonight. Don't ask me, I honestly don't know why. Also I'd like to share too but I'd do that anonymously in the comment section. Tonight I want to talk about secrets. It's ok, we can all be anonymous. 
Is it true that EVERYBODY has a secret? 
Is there anyone here who doesn't have a secret? I'd really like to know; You're a completely open book and there's not ONE thing about you that you wouldn't mind other people knowing about? Please raise your hands up. 
And for the rest of us, what's something about you that no one knows, or very few people know? Who's got a dark secret here, or a weird one, or a funny one even? I really don't mean to be invasive but I don't want to be the only one sharing, plus I think hearing other people's secrets is quite fun, don't you think?

Let's Be Random Together! (Open Keypad).

Hey guys, a while back blog reader F said something about creating an Open Keypad post, where you can write whatever you want in the comment section. I thought it was a fun idea!
So who is interested? Comment on anything you feel like, ask me or anyone a question, talk about how your day went, your job, your interests, tell us something about you that we don't know, share a testimony with us, rant about anything you feel like, talk about your crush/boo/spouse/relationship/marriage, challenges you're facing, ANYTHING AT ALL! 
I'll only make one request; that we stay civil. 

(F it was you who made this suggestion, right? I'm not too sure and I can't even remember the post the comment was made on). 
BTW please Ejoeccome out come out, wherever you are!

Question of The Day.

TTB readers doesn't this tweet below remind you of something?
That mail that someone sent me a few weeks back. 
But why on earth should a man sleep with his son's fiancé? But what am I saying, some men even sleep with their daughters...

Oh well, I'm throwing the question to you. What has happened in your life that you never saw coming, you never hesperred it, you never imagined could happen, you never imagined could happen to you? 
It could be good, it could be bad, it could be ugly. Do tell!
And it can be more than one. Let me tell you a few. 
-owning a blog -week long dry fast at Prayer City (I never hesperred it).  -staying in an (emotionally) abusive relationship.
The others require anonymity. LOL. Now over to you.
