Blog Readers Asks; Anyone Else A Victim Of Female Genital Mutilation?

I think I was about 10yrs old when my older sister came grumbling to me. We were circumcised. Seeing as she is only 2yrs older than me making her 12 at the time, I wondered why she was so concerned as I had no clue what that meant. She tried to explain. I still didn't see how that would affect our lives, after all it happened when we were babies and the pain was not anything I remembered. But she kept saying we wouldn't enjoy sex. Forgive me but I always was a late bloomer, always following her lead, another reason why my parents made sure we didn't go to the same boarding school so she wouldn't 'spoil me'. I attended an all girls boarding school and remained blissfully unaware of boys, aside from having the occasional trying to look good for when we had joint events with KC and Odogbolu boys. Oh, those innocent times. But honestly, no one really took any notice of me.

I wouldn't have taken any notice of me either. I was stick thin, no breasts and no curves. Fast forward to Uni days, when guys actually started to take notice of me. I gave up my virginity rather easily, I suppose just trying to seek approval and love. But I felt nothing really. And with my sexual experiences after that. Most I did to please the other person, I always saw myself as detached from the experience. Was that down to inexperience on the part of the players? Or my sisters words ringing in the back of my head. We wouldn't enjoy sex. Is that what made her a bit of a free spirit? Experimenting with boys and girls? Was she searching for the elusive enjoyment? But when I met someone I actually loved, I longed for the sex. My emotions fully engaged. But alas, I have never been able to orgasm from penile penetration. Only direct clitoral stimulation. And then i worry sometimes, am I frigid? I can't be frigid if I feel the stirrings, can I? And want the contact. But is it still at the back of my mind a desire to please my partner? 
There was actually a Wemimo movie (for the yoruba movie lovers) where the the theme was the ills of Female Genital Mutilation. The protagonist was a woman who was circumcised and saw no need for sex outside procreation. Having given her husband 3 children, she concluded sex was not food and promptly locked up shop. The poor man resorted to extramarital affairs, which led to a pregnancy and ended up marrying he other lady. A tragic chain of events was set in motion that saw the whole family destroyed, and at the end of the day, the lesson was do not circumcise your daughters, as they will not enjoy sex and the results can be catastrophic. 

So I am asking. Any other circumcised blog readers out there? What has been your experience?

And I would like to hear from men who have been intimate with women that were circumcised; are there any particular challenges? Is sex with them tedious or less enjoyable than with an uncircumcised woman? 


  1. I guess this is a Post meant for the Ladies only. Or reasons why girls resort to lesbianism cos they cudnt know less abt their own Selves dan any guy wud?....recently I asked myself this question, is sex meant for Procreation alone?

    1. No dear. Sex is one of the best things that's been happening before sliced bread and esp if its with someone u have mad chemistry with...

  2. My ex was circumcised and just like the poster said when we had sex it was just for my pleasure, nothing could turn her on or make her horny. It was somehow stressful.

  3. I was gonna ask if you did, before I read to the part where you said you enjoy clitorial stimulation. Since you do, then there's hope.
    First, more women than you'd expect do not have maximum pleasure from penile penetration. So it's not just about your being circumcised.
    So, second, disengage your thoughts from 'we won't enjoy sex'. Some uncircumcised women have passed through phases of 'I don't enjoy sex, I might be frigid'.
    Third, you'd need more time and practise. I wish i didn't have to use the word practise, as that sounds kinda serious,lol. But that's about it. You'd have to do more foreplay, let go, feel, experiment, enjoy and observe your sexual activities. Some positions will pleasure you better than others, some would give orgasm as in clitorial stimulation, some won't even pleasure you at all. This is same for uncircumcised too, so don't fret!
    Talking about positions, have you tried woman on top-legs closed-upward circular movement style?
    Fourth, I have to emphasise that you have to really let go while at it. Let go of fear, judgements and such thoughts. Just do, follow your institutions and enjoy.

    1. Thanks cccc. I guess the key is to just let go.And not be so conscious. Perhaps it will happen then......

    2. Na wa o @ Talking about positions, have you tried woman on top-legs closed-upward circular movement style? Lol. Can't even visualize this one...

  4. Oral stimulation would be a great move on the side of the man. #Now comes the importance of oral sex.

  5. Thelma it's not d circumcision issue,read on women's health website dat 90percent of women dnt reach orgasms or "come"like we say during penile penetration,I inclusive.

  6. Most women don't orgasm through penile penetration and to add circumcision to it is just....

  7. My bestie is a victim and from what she tells me it hasn't affected her sex life in any way. Mrs m

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.

One More Post...


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?

Closed Chapter...

Hello everyone, yesterday a friend said to me, Thelma I love your blog, I've told so many people about your blog, I think you're a very good writer but I feel there's something you're not doing right"

This friend was the first person who won our beauty of the day contest back then in 2014. Then we had met just once through a mutual friend. I mentioned the blog to her and she became an instant reader. I wouldn't have exactly called her a friend then but yesterday as we sat down waiting for our Uber to come get us from Wal-Mart, she's definitely my friend and I knew she was coming from a good place when she said she had much higher expectations of my blog.

Me too.

But you see, in the last year or so, maybe even longer than that, I haven't felt much joy in blogging. It began to feel more and more of a laborious chore, one which I hardly reaped any fruits from.

I really love writing, I love sharing my life and my experiences with others and I've enjoy…

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!
