Battery Operated Boyfriends. Self-Service Anyone?

So I stumbled upon this post on thought catalog titled 20 little-known facts about vibrators, I'll share a few with you. 

Research has shown that women who use vibrators are more likely to visit the gynecologist for checkups, to achieve orgasm with or without a vibrator, and to have lower stress levels and fewer headaches than women who don’t use them. What’s not to like?

One billion dollars’ worth of vibrators are sold every year, accounting for a bigger market even than condoms.

As legend has it, Cleopatra, the Queen of Egypt whose seductive powers culminated in the Roman Civil War, invented the hand-held vibrator by filling a hollowed gourd with angry bees and then pressing it against her nether regions. Hail to the Queen Bee! (Nawa for Cleopatra o!)

Contrary to stereotypes that women use vibrators because they can’t snag a living penis, one study showed that four out of every five female vibrator users was in a relationship

Despite the popular notion that men experience severe castration anxiety and fear of mechanical cuckoldry whenever they see a vibrator, one study showed that seven out of ten men were absolutely A-OK with their lady friends using vibrators.

B.O.B That’s an acronym for “Battery-Operated Boyfriend.” If you can come up with a cuter name for your vibrator, go for it!

The article took my mind back to a post I read on Bella Naija discussing masturbation and whether it's sin or not. As expected the post received a lot of reaction and the comment section was a fiasco. The writer expressed that she fails to see how masturbation is a sin and referenced the bible portion "Christians" use as their case in point. The story of the man that God struck dead for spewing his seed on the ground. I've heard pastor's say this; that's how much God detests masturbation, he even struck a man dead for pouring his semen on the ground, wasting it. Which is what happens when a man masturbates. 

LOLzzz. It's also the same thing that happens when you ejaculate into a condom or "pull out"... 

So yeah, we've established that that's not why he was struck down. He was, for flaunting the orders to continue the lineage by impregnating his late brother's wife...

So that's that. 

Still, having the lustful thoughts that often lead to and of course occur during the act, is sinful. Yes? No? 

I've heard women write, moan, cry about their men masturbating. But is there really anything wrong with the act itself? Ladies, do you own a B.O.B? Men, do you feel threatened by your girl's sex toys? ...And what do you say about the lady whose pastor encouraged to masturbate, in order to keep herself for marriage, and later on, help stay faithful to hubby?

Let's talk. 


  1. That picture is on point. Masturbation is self love. I love myself, is that a sin?

  2. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm?? "...we've established that that's not why he was struck down. He was, for flaunting the orders to continue the lineage by impregnating his late brother's wife...". Thelma, hmmmm? Who and who established this one? LOL.

    Leviticus 15 vs 16-18: "When a man has an emission of semen, he must bathe his whole body with water, and he will be unclean till evening. Any clothing or leather that has semen on it must be washed with water, and it will be unclean till evening. When a man has sexual relations with a woman and there is an emission of semen, both of them must bathe with water, and they will be unclean till evening."

    One thing that is peculiar about issues relating to sex in the Holy Scriptures is the general reluctance of it being associated with holiness. There're even indications that legitimate sex is usually a hindrance in improving one's personal relationship with GOD, for instance where Saint Paul advocates for marriage ONLY to curb sexual passion. In the Old Testament, apart from Onan being struck for (un)established reasons, Laws were put in place as regards seminal discharges. All instances were tagged #Unclean. There's absolutely no indication anywhere in any scripture that seminal discharge is deemed appropriate. If it was, then it would be safe and appropriate to imagine the possibility of JESUS CHRIST masturbating, right?

    Seminal discharge is unclean, and masturbation is an avenue to that. I hope we can establish what that means :D

    1. it establishes that babies are unclean... that's all i'm seeing

    2. If seminal.discharge is a sin Memphis then those who use condoms are sinners too both married and unmarried, is that ur point? Because I don't understand. BTW am not saying masturbation is good ohhhu.

    3. TTB addict, thou art seeing double. Lol. Anyway check these out (as regards your concerns) when you've got time: Leviticus 12, Luke 2:22-24. Take note of CHILDBIRTH, UNCLEAN, PURIFICATION.

    4. If you rarely discharge, likelihood of prostrate cancer increase dramatically though.

      So when u are 45-50 and with prostrate cancer, you will be like, what did I do wrong ehn?

      Anyways, these are just trivial stuff.

      On a serious note, I don't take offense with those who masturbate and I do not see the bible saying masturbation is a sin(stand to be corrected). I probably don't know what 'unclean' means literally, but if it helps in preventing from StDs and falling for the wrong guy/girl and having unwanted pregnancy... I think I sure helps in solving some of world's pain and problem.

      Hopefully I just made sense.

    5. Mabel, there's SIN, there's UNCLEAN. That something makes you unclean doesn't necessarily mean you've committed a sin. Sex (legal or illegal) makes you unclean but legal sex isn't sinful. Ignorance isn't always sinful but it makes you unclean. Seminal discharge isn't always sinful but it's unclean in all levels. Onan was struck by GOD for his deliberate act of discharge, which is akin to masturbation.

      Using a condom (or any contraceptive) is unclean or sinful, depending on the situation. JESUS cursed the fig tree for its inability to produce fruit. Now why would HE do that? What was he trying to prove? Onan, now the fig tree. Both cases stalling reproduction didn't go down well with GOD, and that's exactly what contraceptives are meant for. So perhaps we should revisit our reasons for using contraceptives, just to be safe than sorry.

    6. Memphis , I really believe the concept of clean n unclean is instituted by man... A belief system or culture or way of life..

    7. Adaeze you have a valid point. You should however note that the concept of clean and unclean was instituted with basic reference to The Law, a culture even JESUS was subject to and in honor of same culture twisted whips HE used to drive out desecrators in the Temple.

  3. I'm all for self BOB is the only man that makes me cum...

  4. Let's be honest, this post is to the women. We've always been the morality mule when it comes to sexuality topics...

  5. An added knowledge today

  6. Today nobody surprises and is ashamed having vibrators or looking for it!) And it's rather interesting watching different kind of vibrators) And it's very comfortable having it, you can read about it on . They really bring 50 shades of fantasy to life) Enjoy!)

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!

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…
