Sex Starvation For Good Governance

7 Day Sex Boycott.


Kenya’s seemingly hopeless situation has finally snaked it’s way into the bedrooms. But nothing seems to move Kenyans any more. Is sex starvation the magic bullet that will get all and sundry up and fighting for reforms? If it’ll magically sort out the current impasse, then go Ida! go Ida!


Look out for cranky old men and women in the course of the week. Cranky old men and women in addition to all the other problems we’re having. Hoping they won’t be too dazed with pent up sexual energy to discuss constitutions and all.


Can’t wait to see who will crack first.

Shiko, I do have serious issues with this no-sex vybe.

Can't these women use another bargaining chip?

I highly doubt its effectiveness.

Tamaku said...

George and I hadn't heard about it. Sisi bado tutaendelea kufanyana!

joyunspeakable said...

What the heck? If guys would die for lack of sex, me would have died 6 months ago.....

BP 1 said...

Desperate Times Call For Desperate Measures. Surely we Kenyans are disparate for reforms.

Our Kid said...

Wanaume tung'oe reli!

Shiko-Msa said...

Loooooool Tamaku! How come I didn't expect that from you? This cracked me up let me get over it first. They should have included a clause for gay people who also want to participate in political reforms. Meanwhile count yourselves lucky.

Njenga/Joy the said people probably don't have a sex life in the first place. Ama maybe that's why we're where we are in the first place. Actually to think of it.....

Palaver on the other hand has a story on this church leader in Florida who has urged parishioners to have sex every day for a month to help cut America's high divorce rates. If the no sex thing fails, maybe we can borrow a leaf from them.

Desperate indeed BP. Maybe a bit too desperate?

Shiko-Msa said...

Our Kid the ng'oa reli method has been tried severally with no obvious results. The battle is now a notch higher. Or lower I don't know. You should probably wait for our week to kwisha then you start yours.

BP 1 said...

Shiko this sex embargo will work perfectly if implemented at Koinange Street si that is where our political gangs go when they are desperate for sex.

Our Kid said...

I just called FIDA and they confirmed it is 7 WORKING days so this long weekend is exempt. Phew!!!

I had just organized a bunch of men and given them placards of HAKI YETU but this has been averted!

Shiko-Msa said...

BP the organizers of the campaign are paying the call girls not to go to work. Seems they've sealed all loopholes.

Eunuch said...

Cuku,
Tell Kenyans that I offer EUNUCH 100 lessons for free now that women have re-discvored top notch power resident below. But will they do it ama ni domo kawa? Can Ida deny PM conjugal rights without bedroom tanrums? Time will tell.

Cee said...

Nimekosa words.....using sex as votes just makes it lose its essential meaning

Mama Shujaa said...

It has merit, the execution is the problem. Every woman would have to be on lock down! Nationwide. For more than one week...I think folks can go a week without easily. A month. Ehe! Now that would be hard. Folks would have to fly out of the country.

Shiko-Msa said...

Our Kid you actually called FIDA? Ni kubaya.

Lol Eunuch your link leads to no blog. Who will host your lessons? Not me.

Cee I was equally open mouthed when I first heard about it. Kwanza I heard in the Swahili bulletin and in Swahili it sounds worse. Wanawake wasusie ngono. Eish. Whoever came up with such words as ngono?!?

Mama Shujaa after our week the guys will probably start their own boycott in protest.

Huraay ladies, we're finally free from octogenarian sex.

Nairobian Perspective said...

show me one woman who really loves and respects her husband who will pull this one and i will tell you she is a liar!the principals will not be touched even the list bit, the other day Wanjala hd a homecoming and was lauded by among many people fellow politicians and women, and what did he say," mwanaume lazima awe na mpango ya kando...galfriend" that can only be said in Kenya and the crowd rouses itself in jubilation! a woman who will be unwise to pull this off will only have herself to suffer seeing that women are their own worst enemies and men know that ! see the coments at the post :

Mountainous said...

If it was supposed to start Yesterday, it can be authoritatively confirmed that It is NOT working!

Biche said...

Hmmm...I don't think this will work, neither do I think it's a good idea. Like Nairobian Perspective said, if you love and respect your man, why would you use sex as a bargaining chip like this. Kwani, what are you trying to tell him as an individual?

Well, let's see how it goes. Thanks for sharing Shiko-Msa.

This is one of them things that gets filed under non-starters and serious own goals.

It would only ever work if supply was choked from the top down, and lets face it, depriving men of Premier league football for part of a season would have a more significant impact. . Conventional wisdom would suggest where there was one unwilling giver, there will always be a few more willing to give in return for something.

For example, commercial sex workers collectively make more money in 7 days than the G10 could ever fundraise to pay them to stay off the street. It's an economic no-brainer.

Besides, its Disingenuous for the so called G10 women leaders to call for a move that will deprive a whole section of the population a means of putting food on the table - while they unseemingly continue to get their own salaries.

It can also be an implicit trigger for an unprecedented wave of domestic violence for the 'unscheduled' refusal of conjugal rights. The cause may be noble, but its as stupid as a cyclist screaming to a motorist that he's got the right of way yet another car is steaming full speed at him. People die, and even more importantly, those who live forget what the gripe leading to the death was in the first place.

Mwistar said...

This sex starvation thing has caused a bigger stir than the missing maize saga. I say, kudos to Kenyan women, and all women in the world who have endured sex as a weapon against them for political gain.

Toothless Bulldog said...

why couldnt women just boycott turning up for and/or organising major functions and fetes for two weeks

that would surely paralyze most blokes

think of the many activities that are women led, ranging from church to birthdays

any one of those would be more visible and effective

so how do you know a man that has had and one that has not ( or a woman that gave and one that didnt)

its some kind of madness. and besides the "lucky ones" are those wana ona mwezi, who would be off duty anyway. The ones hardest hit ni wale wana monthly or say quarterly appointment

what complex way to make a point.

Am with Our Kid on this one, just uproot a railway line, results are instantly available for all to see.

Mama said...

Why is sex such a big deal for pete's sake? Maybe coz I don't have it I don't get its importance.

I can assure you this boycott will not affect Kibz, gosh I can't even picture the guy doing it! And anywhay Kibz doesn't care about much so the joke is on Kenyans.

Ida says she supports the boycott 100 percent, who is she cheating? Many married couples their age go even a whole month without sex!! Tell her to 100% her actions or inactions to the birds.

So who is this boycott really for? Ordinary Kenyans? What wrong have they done? I imagine a bride who got married on Wednesday (since nowadays I see a lot of weekday weddings) then tells her new hubby no sex for a week! That would be a marriage doomed from the start.

In any event some Muslim women led by Shakila Abdalla came and told us on the news last night that they cannot deny their husbands their rights! It is against the muslim culture so I guess muslims sans Rukia Subow of Maendeleo ya Wanawake, will be doing it.

Oh yes I forgot, and for those women not having sex, what should they boycott?

Mwistar said...

I see Mrs. Odinga echoed my earlier sentiments. Methinks it's a positive thing.

kachwanya said...

The reality on the ground might make it so hard to say this initiative will be effective even if Ida and Lucy are behind it. Some of women i spoke to in the last two days feel that could be dangerous for the peaceful relationship they have. There a number of issues to deal with here modernity vs traditions, the religion vs reality, guilt vs righteousness and then there is who the target is..check my full take:http://www.kachwanya.com/?p=156

Empower Kenya said...

Shiko,
The only problem with such a strike is all the women who are willing to give it up to Mr. politician just because he is a MP.
If the wives do not give it up, these MP's will get it somewhere else...
A sex strike surely will not work
FIDA should find a more creative way of encouraging dialogue.

joyunspeakable said...

yesterday i decided to take a deliberate drive along Koinange street and city hall way....the shhhh shhhh Haaaaaany!!! calls that came my way as i looke at the women showing off their wares were enough to tell me that this(strike) is a joke

Mama Shujaa said...

Congrats Shiko on your award tena! From Solomonsydelle.

I was wondering about the state of affairs and so thanks joyunspeakable for the update. It was going to be difficult to execute the boycott with the desired result, we all know that.

read 1 Corinthians 7; 5
I couldn't put it better than St. Paul

Shiko-Msa said...

4.23 Lol at octogenarian sex. Public opinions, hearing aids, pacemakers and false teeth. And Pfizer. Poor Pfizer. Did they ever imagine Kenya’s political problems might affect their balance sheet?

Nairobian that Wanjala guy! I’m sure his reaction to this boycott call was that of pure mirth.

Mountainous someone did the monitoring?

Biche karibu. This was just a cheap idea that was never going to work.

Stone Cold true there is a lot of cash doing rounds in commercial sex circles. And they’re call girls anyway. Even if G10 managed to pay them, they’d take the money and still get called for business thus making double.

Mwistar the sex starvation thing has sure raised a storm. It was the talk in the morning on QFM today. Just when I thought it’s over. Mrs. Odinga is 100% behind it so at least we’re sure of one homestead where it was effected.

Toothless Bulldog they’re said to glow. Those who have had.

Lol Mama you’re not to picture anyone doing it let alone Kibz. Shhhh we do not want to discuss first sex lest we land in court. In case we do, it’s not my blog. I don’t know any Mama. And anyway who is Kibz? But true he would not have been moved. Ati mnataka kuacha mambo hayo. Si muache. Ordinary Kenyans are the ones to bear the brunt of everything. Leaders mess up then come to us for prayer, fasting, stone throwing, kung’oa reli and now sex?

Kachwaya thanks for the link. Will be there soonest. I hope the good women’s organizations that came up with this idea have not put a dent to their credibility.

Empower Kenya even ex-mps. Look at Wanjala for example bragging about his mpango wa kandos.

Lol Joy you hit the streets? Thanks. At least we have a live report.

Mama Shujaa I’ve just been to Broda-land to collect my award. Thanks. I second you on thanking Joy for doing the footwork.

Now where is that Bible?

I guess it’s safe to say that the sex boycott has failed miserably and was bound to fail anyway. In these days, sex is no longer something given to men like here darling, have this gift. It’s something to be shared and appreciated by all. I think.

just DO NOT SHAKE HANDS!!You cannot be sure what they've been 'working at'...

Mama said...

Even me I have tagged you Shiko! Better get to work girl, and on this topic, NTV has just reported prostitution has increased tenfold in Nairobi with Police being shown on TV fondling the ladies of the night!

Sex boycott? Who's the joke on? LoL!

Shiko-Msa said...

Lol Sleek. Karibu. You never know.

Joy. I will no longer call you Joy. I'll call you Joyunspeakable in full for obvious reasons.

Mama I got that tag. I'm so tagged there's no escaping this one. I'm working on a post.

nikolas said...

which strike? where? nathing. i am getting me some!

Shiko-Msa said...

Lol Intel. Lucky dude. Seen the headline today? HOPE AS KIBAKI AND RAILA MEET AT LAST. We still had a few more days to go.

SupremeGREAM said...

I watched new on NTV on Sunday and there were these women from Coasto. One particular one said "Sisi twapenda wanaume wetu, na ni haki yao. Sisi twawapa kama kawaida. Kazi yaendelea" She had this serious face with that coastal Swahili it was hilarious. Then watching the news on Monday, I see a guy walking from a karumaido (brothel of sorts) like stair case on Luthuli avenue tucking his package into place allegedly after being served.

Now, the headline in todays paper, was it a double entendre or what? Did it mean hope for the two as it has been said they are not getting any or is real hope for Kenyans waiting to see them work together?

Eunuch said...

Ciku,
You can jugde from the hits and post HOW SEX SELLS. Stats say an average man thinks abouts sex (active and latent) aboyt 12 times in a day and that doubles when he is stressed and quadruples when idle. So G10 was into the game of uping the emotional antenae and not boycott. We are stuck in the preface oblivious of the juicy pages inside, ama?

The Edge said...

Something tells me they just needed an excuse to explain 'withholding'

Shiko-Msa said...

Greamz G10 will probably claim victory wanting us to believe it's hope for Kenyans because the principles cracked after not getting any.

Hi Ivan. Long time. They needed something for an excuse other than the headaches. Lol.

Eunuch the comments came in fast and furious. Now the strike is over let me hurry and do some honest scrap. BTW those stats! That's a lot of thinking. And that's just one topic.

UrXlnc said...

well shiku

here is a man on crack

http://www.nation.co.ke/News/-/1056/595404/-/u67oog/-/index.html

er .... i mean here is one who cracked first .... lol

during trial he'll have to give evidence that he was a "regular" (daily partaker) and as a result was functioning normally elsewhere.

this is truly hilarious... waiting with baited breath

Maua said...

Kweli Kenya kuna mambo, I'm trying to comprehend.

Shiko-Msa said...

Lol Your Excellency sometimes I wonder how judges manage to keep a straight face when hearing such cases.

Maua while you were away............
