Sex toys and Erotica The Nigerian Women Starting a bedroom revolution

Quote box - Iheoma Obibi:

heoma Obibi is leading a mini-revolution in bedrooms in the West African nation.

She became the country’s first retailer of sexual health products and erotica after getting requests from friends to buy sex toys on her annual trips to London.

“They were asking me to buy vibrators, nipple suckers, lubricants, water-based lubricants which were non-flavoured, specifically with a pH balance for the female genitalia.”

Realising there was a niche market, the former development worker set up her online shop five years ago.

It was not easy at first – and she had to build up a clientele while fending off the critics.

Ms Obibi also provides sex education and awareness sessions online under the hashtag #Sextalk.

It is for anyone with questions or a curiosity about issues from how to find one’s G-spot to explaining an orgasm, even suggesting positions.

“Part of the problem we face in Nigeria and Africa generally, is that women are shy about negotiating their sexual pleasure,” she says.

“What we are told is you have to save yourself for your marriage and be a virgin. When you marry, you are there to satisfy your husband.

“You are not really told that you are there for any pleasurable fulfilment. You’re told that you have sex for procreation.”

  2. I must show some appreciation to the writer for rescuing me from this particular instance. After exploring throughout the world wide web and meeting ways which are not productive, I was thinking my life was over. Being alive devoid of the solutions to the issues you’ve sorted out as a result of your entire post is a serious case, and the ones which might have in a negative way damaged my entire career if I had not encountered your blog post. Your personal mastery and kindness in playing with all the stuff was valuable. I don’t know what I would have done if I had not encountered such a stuff like this. It’s possible to now look forward to my future. Thank you very much for your professional and amazing help. I will not think twice to recommend your blog to anyone who needs to have guidance on this subject.
