Why are women being shamed for having sexual relationships?

Actress Dayo Amusan is asking why men and women shame other women when they enjoy sexual relationships?

She also said she enjoys good sex and some Nigerians are calling her a bad role model for openly talking about sex.

Here is her post on Instagram that elicited insults and name calling from some of her fans:

I enjoy having sex. I mean good sexual intercourse. You know the thing that people do that is acceptable in society if you’re married, or if you’re trying to conceive a baby or if you’ve been in a partnership with somebody for sometime but most definitely not acceptable if you have sex with somebody on the first date or if you have sex with somebody that you don’t know all that well.

Why are women being shamed for enjoying sex

Why can’t people just have sex for the sake of having sex? Why the actual fuck does a woman that enjoys having sexual relationships with a partner or partners automatically make people jump to the conclusion that the woman doesn’t respect herself? Why does a woman have to justify herself?

I don’t give a fuck if you sleep with 200 people or you have only ever been with 1 or none. I don’t give a fuck if you’re sleeping with one partner, or you’re sleeping with two, three or twenty partners.

I don’t give a fuck if you have sex on the first date or wait until the 30th date. Want to know why I don’t give a fuck? Because it’s none of my fucking business. You know your body, and at the end of the day it’s your body therefore you make the rules.

Why are women being shamed for having sexual relationships? The sad part is majority of it is women shaming other women.


Fuck who you want, when you want, where you want. You don’t owe an explanation to anybody. And you surely are not “disrespecting yourself” because you enjoy having sex.

Be transparent, and educate yourself before expressing such stupidity. But make sure you are playing safe o. Make safe choices.

Catch up with me later tonight on my live video, let’s trash this matter. No insults intended nor accepted.”
