Of sex thirst and dry spells: A sexually frustrated man is a walking grenade

My Man By Silas Nyanchwani
A sexually frustrated male is a walking grenade that is waiting to explode. It can explode on your best friend

However forgetful men are presumed to be, one thing that their minds are permanently wired to remember is the last time they slept with a woman.

For those lucky enough to get some pelvic relief regularly, it is never a big a deal, for they will always know where to get it, be it with their wife, girlfriend or just outsourcing (read one-night stands or commercial sex workers). But for those who have to forage for it due to marital rationing or lack of an available girlfriend is a different story altogether.

The periods upon which individuals don’t get to sleep with members of the opposite sex, have been labelled as dry spells. Such times, men teem with palpable lust and pelvic thirst they can sleep with anything to vent off the steam. In the era of social media, thirsting now plays out openly. Daily, you see a woman says that she wants to be taken out. Daily, you see a man liking the photos and dropping saucy comments any time a female friend uploads photos. All this tells you one thing; the individuals want something.

I don’t how women handle dry spells. Lately though, one-night-stands have become fairly common. No-strings attached sex is now a standard practice across Nairobi. Maybe alcohol and the pill have empowered women to display their thirst without men necessarily judging them harshly.

However, for men, a dry spell if goes for long can lead them to be reckless. Recently, a friend arrived from one of those fundamentalist Muslim countries, where he had been studying for four years. That means for four years he has never felt the warmth of a woman body next to him four years.

Four years, let that sink in. Neither has he ever tested alcohol. I was the first man he interacted with and his second sentence after hugging me profusely at the airport was, “I need beer and a woman in that order.”

He was itching. It was a 999 moment. He was on fire. A venereal disease at the time was the least of his concerns. He wanted a woman, regardless of her looks. Rather a shy person, he shocked me by his brazen demand. When we hit the bar, he could not believe how easy things are for a secular Kenya.

More to the point, I left him to his devices and I hope by now, he has cooled down. I have had my fair share of such droughts that needed proper irrigation and boy, they can make a man do stupid things. Like calling an ex at 3.02 am and giggling sheepishly.

He brought home a vital fact: a man can only go on for so long without conjugal pleasure. When denied or lacking, they resort to desperate measures that doubly endanger their lives. Thus if you are someone’s wife or girlfriend, of all the things that you can deny him, it should not be sex. Deny him food, let him work on his laundry, pick up after himself but importantly make his day.

A sexually frustrated male is a walking grenade that is waiting to explode. It can explode on your best friend or worst still your blood relative. Blame it on the circumstances.

Thankfully, in Nairobi, you can have your way without going through the emotions and expenses that come with relations if you know where to look.Here is to hope that my friend got some.
