Why Women Are Applying Tobacco On Their Private Parts
A section of Tanzanian women are applying ground tobacco on their privates to stop the urge of having sex.
According to a report by the BBC, the women, from Tabora, also view the act as a family planning method.
“When I put the tobacco (in my privates) I feel like I have been with a man. Even if a man makes a move at me, I feel like he’s just a nuisance.
“An old woman told me to mix the ground tobacco (ugoro) with soda ash (magadi) before mixing it with cooking oil. When placed in the privates, the urge to have sex ceases,” Asha Said.
According to Asha’s husband Hamidu Santu, he was prompted to investigate the matter after she turned down his advances time and again.
“Whenever I asked her (for conjugal rights), she declined. After carrying out my investigation, I found her with tobacco, despite neither of us using the drug.
“I asked her why she had tobacco yet she did not smoke it but she didn’t respond. After constantly inquiring on the matter, she finally told me what she uses it for,” he said.
Asha further revealed that the tobacco is mostly used by divorced women, widows or those whose husbands are away for a long time.
