 Twins From Different Fathers |  Cornelpictures Productions

South Africa’s Department of Home Affairs seems to have lit a powder keg following its proposals to introduce marriage laws that allow polyandry.

According to the Green Paper on Marriages, a policy document published last week, the current marriage act does not promote equality. In a bid to fix this, the Department of Home Affairs is exploring the option of allowing women to marry more than one husband, in the same way, that polygamous men are allowed to marry more than one wife.

The Green Paper called for polyandry to be legally recognised as a form of marriage. Polyandry is a form of polygamy in which a woman takes two or more husbands at the same time. Polyandry is contrasted with polygyny, which involves one man taking two or more wives.

South Africans have until the end of June to comment on the department’s proposals.

Unsurprisingly, the proposal on polyandry is wreaking havoc across the country and has resulted in mixed reactions. Not just in South Africa, but across the world.

Some people have denounced the proposal of polyandry as being unAfrican while the more religious have cited this as a sign of the Biblical end of times. However, others have welcomed the proposal saying it is a boon for equality. Some are also poking fun at the alleged hypocrisy of people who believe in polygamy to be against polyandry.

Below are some of the reactions from people on social media to the issue of polyandry in South Africa.

 A viral TikTok video has garnered over 3.5 million views after an influencer by name, Jerry Mal, ostentatiously flaunted a rather unusual beauty hack to grow one’s lips.

In the clip, he shows people how to easily get fuller and plumper lips using an erection cream as he applies it on his lips.



“Basically, I saw a movie where a girl put erection cream all over her lips and it made them really big, so now I’m going to try it. I forgot what film it was.”

“It kind of tingles. It’s not terrible, but we’ll see,” he says as he applies the cream on himself.

Normally, people go through clinically recommended cosmetic lip augmentation procedures to get what the influencer claimed works in minutes – most common being injectable dermal fillers.

Medics have called out Jerry Mal over his viral video that has seen thousands try to imitate.

But Jerry came through in his TikTok account and assured his followers his hack worked out for him and would recommend it to anyone who wanted to try it out.

Doctors Warn Against Viral Use Of Erection Creams To Make Lips Bigger

“It’s been five minutes and they look bigger.”

“They definitely look a bit bigger, I kind of like it” he said despite rushing to take off the lip as his lips started stinging.

Medics say this method is dangerous – especially if the cream is consumed.

“I don’t know exactly which cream is being used in the video, but all erection creams work by using vasodilation, which increases blood flow to an area.

“Increased blood flow will lead to swelling of the area, and this lasts for about an hour. All the benefits of plumping will be completely temporary.

“These creams were not made to be ingested or consumed by mouth and it’s probably not safe to be consumed,” one doctor on TikTok called Derm Doctor quickly reacted on the trend.

 A woman who spent years hiding from people because she was self conscious about the size of her legs says she's finally embracing them.

 


Monique Samuels from Atlanta, USA, had these insecurities ever since she was diagnosed with lymphedema at 12-years-old.

 

The condition, also known as lymphatic obstruction, causes excess fluid to collect in bodily tissues and causes swelling in the legs.

 

It also gives the 35-year-old Master’s student joint pain and skin infections that have left her hospitalised.

 

Woman who felt self-conscious for years as people stared at her big legs says she

 

In attempt to combat these problems, Monique has gone under the knife 10 times, according to DailyStar.

 

She also undertakes manual lymph drainage therapy regularly but sadly there’s no cure to her condition.

 

Monique said: “When I was 12, I sprained my ankle, and shortly after, my right foot and leg started to swell up.

 

"After going to several hospitals, I was referred to Lerner Lymphedema Center by an ER resident and that is where I was diagnosed – after about six months of hospital stays, MRI scans, blood tests and ultrasounds.

 

"I was very self-conscious about my appearance once the condition developed, no one was ever unkind to my face but I would hear things from others or just stares from people in public.

 

"I used to stray away from going out or doing certain things to avoid stares or feeling like I was dependent on others for help, when my legs were at their biggest.

 

"A lot of the time, I had to roll my legs in wraps and it just took away from any fun I wanted to have."

 

Monique used to hide away because of her condition.

 

Woman who felt self-conscious for years as people stared at her big legs says she

 

She said: "I let the condition control my life and my decisions. I used to base all my life choices on how it would affect my legs or limit myself because of it."

 

But after years of battling with it, she decided she wasn’t going to let it hold her back anymore.

 

She said: "I was just tired of being sick and tired. It took time but I was happy to push through that thought process by doing life coaching.

 

Woman who felt self-conscious for years as people stared at her big legs says she

 

"I used to always get comments from people saying that I was pretty but my legs were so big, and it used to bother me when I was younger but now I know I'm beautiful because of my legs.

 

"There is so much more to me than my condition, I’m proud of who I am and who I am becoming."

7 Tips When Dealing with Vaginal Odor

Quick Fixes for Your Stinky Body Parts | Everyday Health
Is vaginal odor natural?

Unusual vaginal odor happens from time to time. Even when you’re taking good care of your body and your vagina, you may experience unfamiliar smells. What’s not normal is persistent or strong odors.

The first question you should ask yourself if you consider your vaginal odor abnormal is: What’s normal? Vaginas have natural odors, and each woman’s odor is different.

A healthy vagina’s typical scent may best be described as “musky” or “fleshy.” A menstrual cycle might cause a slightly “metallic” scent for a few days. Intercourse may change the smell temporarily.

Your vagina cleanses itself naturally. If you leave your vagina to its own devices, it can naturally maintain a healthy pH and keep unhealthy bacteria at bay.

But if you notice a stark difference in your odor, then you may be experiencing a sign of a potential problem.

Strong odors, itching and irritation, and unusual discharge are all signs you may have something other than just unusual vaginal odor.

7 ways to get rid of vaginal odor

Occasionally, you may need a little help getting rid of an odor. The following techniques may help you naturally eliminate unusual vaginal odors:

1. Practice good hygiene

Bathe the area between your legs. A gentle washcloth will help wash away dead skin, sweat, and dirt. You can use a gentle soap on the outside.
Inside the labia, the area is much more sensitive, and soap often burns and irritates. Letting the water run over the area is often enough to keep the labia around the vagina clean. The vagina itself doesn’t need to be cleaned.
Avoid loofahs because they may cause small tears, exposing the area to possible infection.
Don’t use perfumed soaps or body washes. The scents and chemicals may upset your vagina’s natural pH. Bar soaps may be gentler than body wash, but warm water is enough.

2. Use only exterior deodorizing products

If you want to use any sprays or perfumes, only use them on the outside of the labia, not near the vagina. Don’t insert them. They can upset your natural chemistry and lead to bigger problems.

3. Change your underwear

If you normally wear satin, silk, or polyester panties, make the switch to 100 percent cotton.
Cotton is breathable and does an excellent job wicking away sweat and fluids from your body. Excess moisture can upset your natural bacteria levels and lead to infections.

4. Consider a pH product

Over-the-counter (OTC) products may be helpful for restoring your vagina’s natural pH.
If you try one and the odor remains or grows worse, make an appointment with your doctor. You may need to use a different product, or you might need to see your doctor for a treatable infection.

5. Essential oils

Essential oil treatment has very little medical research to support it. Some essential oils have antimicrobial and antifungal properties that may help reduce and eliminate bacteria.
But never apply essential oils directly to the skin without diluting them first in a carrier oil. Even diluted, essential oils can still be irritating to the vaginal area.
You may find OTC creams that have essential oils in them, but only use them if there’s a recommendation for use in the genital area.

6. Soak in vinegar

Frequent hot baths and hot showers can upset your natural pH, but one type of bath may be useful. Pour a cup or two of apple cider vinegar into a warm bath and soak for 20 minutes. Vinegar may naturally reduce bacteria.

7. Prescription treatments

Prescription treatments can help eliminate underlying causes that are contributing to the odor. If your home or OTC treatments aren’t successful, it may be time to talk to your doctor about treatment options.

When to see a doctor

If this odor is accompanied by unusual symptoms, you should skip the home treatment and consult your doctor.
For example, if your vaginal odor is stronger than normal and seems to be getting stronger, you may need an appointment.
Likewise, a “fishy” smell is a reason to make an appointment. A foul smell is a symptom of a vaginal infection.
These odors could be signs of a problem that’s not improving. You may need your doctor to prescribe medication or prescription treatment.
You don’t want to delay treatment. An untreated infection can affect your ability to get pregnant later in life.
Some vaginal discharge is normal. If you notice an increase in discharge or that the fluids are no longer white or translucent, you may have an infection.
Occasional itching is also normal, but if you develop a frequent itch or one that’s painfully irritating, you may be experiencing signs of a bigger problem.

Tips for preventing future odor

Once you eliminate the unusual vaginal odor, keep these tips in mind for preventing another problem later:
  • Consider probiotics. Probiotics, which are good-for-you bacteria, can help maintain the pH balance of your vagina. Probiotic-rich foods include yogurt, kombucha, and unpasteurized sauerkraut.
  • Maintain a healthy diet. Aim to eat a balanced diet with plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins. A balanced diet makes for a healthy body, and that includes your vagina.
  • Stay hydrated. Drinking plenty of water is good for more than just your skin. It can help your vagina’s overall health, too, by encouraging healthy sweating and fluid release.
  • Avoid douches and scrubs. You might think they’ll help eliminate bad bacteria, but they also eliminate the good bacteria. Let your body work out the bacteria ratios and skip these unnatural washes.
  • Wash your genital area before and after intercourse. Sex introduces bacteria, as well as foreign substances like lubrication and spermicide from condoms. Wash before and after sex to help maintain natural bacteria levels.
  • Cut out tight clothes. Clothes that are too tight don’t let your vagina and groin area breathe. Getting plenty of oxygen is vital to good vaginal health.
  • Wear cotton panties. Cotton panties wick away excess moisture from sweating or discharge. Synthetic fabrics are not as good at this.

The bottom line

Home treatments usually help reduce unusual vaginal odor in about a week. If the odor isn’t gone, or if it becomes stronger, you should see a doctor.
A strong vaginal odor can be a sign of a larger problem, one that you may be unable to treat on your own. It’s better to see a doctor early to prevent the problem from getting worse.

Benefits of Mindfulness

Benefits of Mindfulness
Mindful breathing

 

Ever heard of Mindfulness? Mindful meditation, eating, breathing, mindfulness-based stress reduction or its other benefits? Or what happens if you eat, work or study with an absent mind?
Mindfulness based stress reduction
Mindfulness based stress reduction
A continuous never-ending to-do list!
Doing one task while thinking of the next one!
Eating food without even experiencing its taste and texture!
Sleeping yet your brain is rolling!
Frequently forgetting about your stuff!
Forgetting people’s names!
Sounds familiar? Well, this is the psychological condition of many people around us. This is definitely not a healthy way of living. But what is the solution?
For many people, the solution that has proved very successful is mindfulness. The simplest way to explain mindfulness is “the art of being present in the moment”. Though it sounds simple, it is not trivial. You have to combine the presence and experience of your mind and body in one place and in one moment of time for both parts of your existence to converge and focus.
For example, you won’t feel the actual bliss of food if you do not focus on the taste, the texture, the sound of crunch, the movement of your mouth chewing food and the temperature of food in it. You see, how many dimensions of experience are present in one bite of your food. Just try it right away. Leave all the gadgets and other distractions around you and feel your bite. You will be astonished at the richness of your experience.

Benefits of Mindfulness

Benefits of Mindfulness
Benefits of Mindfulness
The biggest benefit of mindfulness is the feeling of being a whole entity converged at one point. With mind wandering at different places and body present in a different place, it is a very unpleasant experience. Hence, it is like stealing the fun from the moment. However, you can only feel the benefits once you experience the focus and bliss of mindfulness.
Let us explore other benefits of mindfulness.

1.     Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction

One of the most recognized benefits of mindfulness is its contribution to the reduction of stress. Mindfulness increases the ability to enjoy life and achieve more through the focus and attention and helps to reduce stress. This mindfulness-based stress reduction actually is acquired because your mind is not wandering and is at peace with the present moment. Fewer regrets about the past, no useless worries about the future, less preoccupation of mind and emotion regulation are responsible for the mindfulness-based stress reduction.

2.     Focus

Mindfulness is about increased focus. It trains you to bring your mind to focus on the present moment you are going through. This practice helps to improve the working of your memory and thus results in better performance in every aspect of life be it work or sports or relationships.

3.     Increased brain Gray matter

Advanced research shows that practicing mindfulness has physical effects on the brain resulting in increased brain Gray matter in particular areas. These particular areas include the cerebellum, the left hippocampus, temporoparietal junction, and the posterior cingulate cortex. These particular brain parts are responsible for dealing with emotion regulation, perspective, memory management, and also self-referential processing.

4.     Physical health

Scientists have found that better mental health and well-being achieved through mindfulness results in better physical health. The physical benefits of mindfulness are also an outcome of mental stability and relaxation achieved through it. Mindfulness results in controlled blood pressure, reduced chronic pains, managed glucose levels and improved sleep quality and sleep pattern.

Start the journey of Mindfulness

Mindfulness is essentially a way of life. You start with little steps and gradually move on to a stage where the whole of your life becomes mindful and this becomes your way of life effortlessly. However, initially, it takes time and effort but the good news is that you can start off with as little as one activity during your day and as little time as 5 minutes a day.
For beginners, some very simple yet effective exercises to start mindfulness are as follows.

1.     Mindful breathing

This is the simplest mindful meditation exercise yet the most powerful. Mindful breathing means inhaling and exhaling with complete attention and focus. It can be done in any position but lying down with eyes closed works better and makes focusing easier. Making a routine of mindful breathing and doing it at a fixed time for 1-2 minutes every day helps too.
To practice mindful breathing, take a deep breath and inhale through your nostrils for around 2 seconds, hold your breath as long as you easily can and exhale for around 4 seconds through your mouth. It is important to concentrate on your breath and leaving your mind unoccupied with any other thought. Alternatively, you can focus on the rise and fall of your chest.
It is ok if initially, your mind wanders, don’t worry, just bring your mind back to the mindful meditation exercise and gradually your focus span will improve.

2.     Observe nature

Go for a walk preferably in nature like woods or a lake but any calm and peaceful setting would do. The best time for this mindful meditation exercise is early morning. Listen to the sounds of nature like birds chirping, the sound of the wind or the leaves cracking under your feet. Feel the wind on your skin, smell flowers or touch the water; all these exercises when done with all your senses present, enhance your connection to your roots. Most noteworthy, the point of emphasis here again is to be present in the moment and keeping all your senses i.e. touch, smell, hearing, and feeling focused on this one activity.

3.     Mindful Eating

As discussed earlier, mindful eating has loads of benefits. Start with eating a few bites practicing mindfulness and then gradually increase. For mindful eating, first sense the aroma of food, the colors and the different ingredients you can spot. When you put it in your mouth, feel its texture, taste, and temperature in your mouth. Then start chewing and feel the taste and also the movements of your mouth and then swallow. This conscious slow eating changes eating from a ritual to a pleasant experience. Mindful eating is a form of mindful meditation that not only improves your well-being but also has proven medical benefits. One of the most acclaimed result being weight loss and improved gastrointestinal health.

Today’s world is very fast and thus forces humans to keep running like in a race. This, however, is not the way human life was supposed to work. Inherently we love peace and calm. Contemporary research has now proved the disastrous effects fast-paced life has on us. It seems like we are passing through life without enjoying its beauty. This is high time that we slow down and experience life rather than just passing through it. Mindfulness is a perfect way to slow down and appreciate life and achieve serenity and happiness that lasts.

You Should Wear Masks During Sex, If You Cannot Enjoy It By Yourself: Canada’s Top Doctor Advises

Sex in a pandemic can be complicated, Canada’s lead medical doctor says, and it’s best to skip kissing and perhaps wear a mask to prevent spreading Covid-19.
Dr. Theresa Tam, Canada’s Chief Public Health Officer, issued a public statement Wednesday on staying safe from the virus when engaging in sexual activities.
“Sexual health is an important part of our overall health. However, sex can be complicated in the time of Covid-19…” the statement says, with risks increasing for partners engaging with people outside their household.
“The lowest risk sexual activity during Covid-19 involves yourself alone,” Tam advises. But for Canadians choosing to “engage in an in-person sexual encounter” outside their bubble, she suggests a number of steps to reduce risk including “avoiding face-to-face contact or closeness.”
A trusting relationship should first be established and partners should also consider using a mask that covers the nose and mouth, Tam says.
“Current evidence indicates there is a very low likelihood of contracting the novel coronavirus through semen or vaginal fluids. However, even if the people involved do not have symptoms, sexual activity with new partners does increase your risk of getting or passing Covid-19 through close contact, like kissing,” her statement.
Sex should be avoided if either person has Covid-19 symptoms, the statement says, suggesting “limiting your use of alcohol and other substances so you and your partner(s) are able to make safe decisions.”
Of course, the most common health advice was also echoed — to continue to practice safe sex, including by using condoms and knowing the STI status of oneself and their partner.
“By taking these precautions and staying conscious of the risks we assume, Canadians can find ways to enjoy physical intimacy while safeguarding the progress we have all made containing Covid-19,” Dr. Tam’s messaged concludes.

Hilarious Erect 4-5 Average Size Grouping By Region

4-5 Average Size Grouping According To Region
4-5 size according to countiesPeople often fuss about the size of the 4-5 and its ability to satisfy one during sex.
Experts attribute this fuss to porn and mass media, which plant the seed of 4-5 “worth-the-sex” sizes.
But does size really matter? Can you be potent during sex with a small 4-5?
Of particular concern for some men is whether their p_enis will be satisfying se_xually for themselves and their partner. Some men may also be anxious about how they look naked.
Yet when it comes to sexual intercourse, bigger may not always be better, but that also doesn’t necessarily mean small is good.
Well, that’s a story for another day.
4-5 size has been topical since time immemorial and its not a discussion ending anytime soon.
A recent Reddit post has sparked a conversation on social media about the importance of 4-5 size.

Of interest from this outrage is unconfirmed research that has claimed penis variability with regards to regions and tribes.
While there is no sound research on the significant correlation between penis size and regional factors, there is some school of thought that suggests that environmental factors such as the presence of endocrine disruptors can affect the 4-5 size, making it possible for them to differ with each country as exhibited by the questionable post.
The research that categorizes countries into four colours, red – being the worst, up to green – supposedly the favourable one, projects that Asia has the least gifted men in the world, with India having the smallest penises of all.
It is not an unknown fact that Africa has always been rumoured to be the king 4-5 station in the world.
Ecuador, a South American country is allegedly the only country with every man walking around smuggling a muppet.
The average size of a male from Ecuador is 6.9 inches. While the average size of a normal male in the world is at 5.17 inches (13.12cm).

New study reveals 3 in 10 women fake their orgasms regularly

According to a new study, a large orgasm gap still exists between men and women as men at 66% are still climaxing more often than women at 43%.
The new study conducted by sex toy company Lelo and released on National Orgasm Day (July 5) has revealed that almost one in 20 women have never orgasmed with a sexual partner.
women orgasms
Young couple engaged in sexual intercourse
The result of the survey that involved 4,000 heterosexual female and male participants from across the UK also revealed that many male partners are unaware that women are not climaxing with majority of participants in relationships saying their partner orgasms 60% of the time.
According to the study, this could partially be due to some women not being physically able to climate during sex, rather than lack of trying by their partner.
Additional research by Lelo revealed three in 10 people fake their orgasms on a regular basis, with women more likely to do so, according to the study. And only a third of those surveyed have spoken to their partner about their orgasms, or rather lack of orgasms – with men (73%) more likely to raise the issue, compared to women (56%).
‘The orgasm gap refers to the stats that show that in heterosexual sexual experiences men orgasm more than women,’ explains Kate Moyle, sex and relationships expert at Lelo.
‘We also see that this gap doesn’t exist when women are having sexual experiences with women, which suggests that the gap is gendered.’
Orgasm
According to Kate, factors that increase the orgasm gap include lack of education, cultural differences and the fact that many people focus on intercourse to reach climax meanwhile truth is lots of women require clitoral stimulation to climax.
Explaining why the clitoris is ‘so ignored’ Kate says;

‘This is reinforced by what we see represented in many forms of sex online and in the media, where women appear to be orgasming from penetrative sex with little or no arousal,’ she says.
‘Commonly we also split up foreplay and sex, which puts the focus on “sex” as the main event, when if we reframe and think of it all as sex where the goal is pleasure then the clitoris, which is the main source of female pleasure with 8000 nerve endings would get more attention.
‘It’s not all about taking the focus off penetration, but ensuring that people are aware then when women are aroused, the clitoris becomes erect like the penis, and this means the internal structure can be stimulated and can create pleasurable sensations through intercourses, but arousal and being turned on is the key.’
‘The side effect of this lack of sex education is few of us feel confident with sexual communication, and being open about what feels good for us, and this is one of the key routes to creating change.’

Moisturize your body: Winter skincare tips

The best way to take care of your skin in winter is to moisturize your body every time you bath. For the best results moisturize your self as soon as you finish bathing when your skin is still wet. It helps to seal in the moisture and also keeps the skin soft. Use oil-based moisturizers rather than water-based moisturizers, they create a protective layer on the skin that retains more moisture.

Here Are Five Must-Have Back Pain Relief Tips For Women With Big B**bs

You don’t need to look like Anita Joseph to know that being big b**bs can bring with it some unwanted side effects. Here are few tips on how to deal with them.

The upper part of the spine is built to withstand a significant amount of weight and it acts as an anchor to the rib cage and supports the upper body. However, like with lower back pain, upper back pain is most often caused by strain on the muscles and ligaments from poor posture and repetitive motions.

For women with very large breasts, it doesn't take hours spent hunched over a computer or a vigorous gym session to cause upper back pain. The sheer weight of their breasts alone can be enough to cause back pain, sometimes even leading to long-term chronic pain that lasts for months or years.

Furthermore, women with particularly large breasts tend to feel self-conscious about the size of their busts and unconsciously tend to hunch over in an effort to minimise their size which can worsen existing back pain.

The chronic pain can spread from the back to their necks and even affect their shoulders because heavy-duty bra straps dig into their skin and leave permanent and painful marks.
Here Are A Few Relief Tips;

1. Try Alternative Exercise

Excercise

Trying out alternative exercises can be a great way of managing breast-related back pain as well as strengthening your body and muscles in general. You can try yoga for back and shoulder pain and learning to relax your body. The gentle stretching releases muscle and joint tension, and stiffness, and also increases flexibility.

If weight-training is more your thing, there are workouts for preventing back pain. Working with a physiotherapist or personal trainer can improve posture and encourage weight loss in women who are overweight.
2. Wear The Right Bra Size
Bra


Studies have proven that women with larger breasts were more likely to wear the incorrect bra size. It’s a common belief the wrong fit, and the poor posture that results from it, can lead to upper back pain.

Researchers concluded bra fit appeared to be unrelated to pain. But if a bra was poorly fitted, it could impair its function as breast support. This could cause certain levels of discomfort and lead to pain and permanent damage.

Wearing a customised bra or a sports bra that is specially designed is ideal because these types of bras can help distribute and support the weight of large breasts, especially for women with narrow backs, who have a more concentrated distribution of weight than women whose backs are wider.

3. Try And Lose Excess Weight

If you have a slim frame, chances are that any excess weight will contribute to more pressure on your back and shoulders. Also, bear in mind that breasts are essentially lumps of fat. Achieving a healthy weight will make both your frame and breasts lighter, which, in turn, can alleviate unnecessary tension and chronic neck and back pain.

To lose weight sustainable, aim to lose two pounds weekly. Come up with a weekly meal plan. If you are morbidly obese, consulting with a licensed nutritionist and your doctor to come up with a strict, monitored weight loss program.

4. Medication

Taking an occasional over-the-counter pain killer when upper back pain strikes is just fine and an immediate way to relieve breast pain. If the pain is too much, your doctor can prescribe stronger medication to help manage the more severe pain caused by large breasts.

However, keep in mind that painkillers for back pain caused by large breasts are not intended as a long-term solution and if pain becomes chronic, you may have to seek alternative solutions.

5. See A Specialist

A leading back doctor can also help address your back pain and put together and effective and non-invasive treatment plan to provide back pain relief.

Your first step is telling your doctor who will be more than happy to refer you and get you the help you need.

If you are suffering from upper back pain due to large breasts, talk with your doctor. Together, you can put together a plan that will be effective for you.

Do Men Really Suffer Domestic Violence Here In Nigeria? 

When ever we hear or read about domestic violence, the mental image we see is a woman cowering in a corner while being abused or pummeled by a man. Often times we hear men insisting a woman isn't the sole victim in domestic violence, that a lot of men are abused mentally and physically in their homes. How true is this assertion? What's the scenario like? Because i sure can't picture one.

A social experiment was carried out in London by Disturb Reality which was aimed at gauging public reactions towards violence towards each gender. I still can't picture this happening in Nigeria, can you?


I was quite astonished when the man's experiment played out, why do you think people reacted differently as against the woman's own?
