The ‘Kitchen Stool’ Sex Tape is not a breaking story so why wait so long to talk about it? It is simple. I am the person who laughs 17 years on after the joke has been told. With that ice broken, let’s talk and I just may have to keep it short and straightforward as my temper is too short to be telling tall tales.

So it was Monday morning. Quite a hard earned weekday for me as I woke up with a splitting headache. I hardly slept a wink the night before and in my mind’s eye I could not see myself going to work. Ah, the traffic jam, noise, insults from driver to driver; the mere thought of those events even worsened my headache. After I successfully phoned my job to request a day off, I made myself black coffee with no sugar. I needed to stay awake to be effectively lazy that day.

Practicing a usual ritual, I jumped right onto my Twitter timeline for what was trending only to discover a freaking ‘Kitchen Stool’! Same old underrated piece of wood was trending for all the wrong reasons. I scrolled through numerous posts for some time and still couldn’t figure out exactly what all the fuss was about. Almost immediately, I discovered a video. A potential two member cast sex tape game changer. So there was this fairly older man who had been identified as a head teacher. He had mounted a relatively younger woman, apparently 20 years of age on a freaking kitchen stool as though she were a newly unboxed Plasma Television, as he thrusted in and out of her from behind. What I had seen did not look anything like rape; two adults had clearly agreed to have consensual ‘doggy’ coitus on a freaking kitchen stool! Imagine the thirst as they couldn’t even afford to have sex on the decency of a bed.

So there I was, a little shook as I read the comments discussing the sex tape. It wasn’t the age gap nor sex position that got me shook, but the overwhelming reactions the video had received. It was a bit unnatural being that the growing number of witnesses of the video seemed quite unperturbed about the gruesome blueprint of the video. Think about it; a head teacher decided to have sex with his ‘schoolgirl’ on a kitchen stool while filming on tape. How is this even not enough to make Ghanaians angry? Instead, as many as those comments came, they were all jokes and heavy promotion of a piece of wood. Not a single comment expressed any sort of anger so the question here is how did we get here?

The unavoidable logical conclusion that came to mind was that perhaps Ghanaians were just really over constantly complaining about issues of this nature without getting any real results. We know the stories from the Captain Mahama ghastly murder right down to the Rashida Black Beauty ‘melanin downloading’ housefly leaked video. Even Patapaa’s making of ‘One Corner’ was an issue that never really got addressed properly because Ghanaians were busy having ‘fun’. The oversimplication of complex issues by Ghanaians is a direct reflection of our psyche and if this is not enough to get our leaders to strengthen our institutions to reinstate and inspire hope, I doubt anything else would.

While the sexual intercourse in itself may not have been an issue because of the age factor, the academic relationship shared between the two individuals made a clear issue of the intercourse. For those still wondering what really is on trial here, hold my coffee. Before this case gets dragged until Ghanaians forget about it, let me just chip in for ease of reference, the July 2008 Presentation to the Ministry of Education and Ghana Education Service (GES) re the RULES OF PROFESSIONAL CONDUCT FOR TEACHERS IN GHANA. It is emphatically stated in this document under Sexual Conduct that no teacher, in this case head teacher, shall directly or indirectly do anything that may constitute sexual harassment of a pupil/ student. It further stated that any teacher who has carnal knowledge of any female or male pupil/ student of any AGE, with or without his or consent, shall be guilty of professional misconduct. This is what is on trial, and with this July 2008 Presentation still in existence, one would have expected that this head teacher wouldn’t even be offered the agony of a trial which could potentially have him walk Scot free if he were to present a good case. Nevertheless, this is not an attempt to make the young lady the victim, but being the student and seemingly the ‘exploited’ party some sort of therapy is preferably a good path to pursue but any punishment whatsoever metered out to her would not be justified.

So there! About that wraps it all up. At this point my headache couldn’t be ignored any longer so I needed to take something stronger than the remaining half of my coffee which had already grown cold after sitting all through the morning’s events.  When next I read this I hope that it would be out of joy for getting a student mounting sex offender into jail ultimately. Not an amusing joke, but that prediction could put a smile on the faces of Ghanaians  even 17 years later after it goes live.

Till the next time, be the change you want to see. Hey, write your own story!!!

The term bearded lady or bearded woman is a woman who has a visible beard. These women have long been a phenomenon of legend, curiosity, or ridicule. A relatively small number of women are able to grow enough facial hair to have a distinct beard. In some cases, female beard growth is the result of a hormonal imbalance (usually androgen excess), or a rare genetic disorder known as hypertrichosis.

In this era of ours where photos play a key role in our social lives.We can’t go unconcern with the photos we put out for display. Lets get some simple ways we can kill the shots we take.
Firstly of all, you must know that photos are not only about the person in it but also the background. If you didn’t know now you can reflect on it, all the good photos you see have great backgrounds.You can wear the most beautiful outfit and have the best grooming but without a qualifying background, you can’t kill that photo.
If you want to get a wow photo, then you’ve got to forget your problem, because when you’re stressed, that is exactly what is seen in the photo and  no one likes to look at such photos. Before you take a photo,try your possible best to relax. Also drink plenty of water. It does work.
Practice has always made one perfect. So if your goal is to  have a wow photo,then your mirror is your companion in achieving it. Stand in front of the mirror and try all poses and you will surely  find the one pose that works for you.It also builds your self confidence which makes it easy to have that wow  photo.
Lastly,when taking a photo don’t be static,move and be playful and have fun. Don’t forget the best shot will be selected after so don’t bother over which pose  to give which makes the whole experience boring and time consuming and also try to be interactive with the photographer.

Most a times,we perceive women who marry men who are many years older than them with different notions. Well,you may not be all that right. Here are some reasons why some prefer the older men for marriage.
1.Maturity:older men are mature and can handle them better than the younger ones in terms of understanding them.
2.Cheating-free marriage:Older men don’t often cheat on their wives as compared to the younger men.And every woman’s dream is for her husband to love her alone.
3.Security:Women always love to be protected and feel secured with whoever they’re
with.Older men make women secured in providing them their needs so that they don’t lack.
4.Trend sake:Many young men marry not because they’re really ready for marriage but want to follow fashion of marrying at a young age and for the glamour of weddings of late,which makes them not be good husbands.
5.Bad fatherhood: Most young men are terrified when babies begin to show up in the marriage,they then begin to fight for attention with the children from their wives and don’t have knowledge on how to bring up children in the conducive way.
Now are your doubts is cleared?

Most of people want improve their health and to get in shape but have difficulties maintaining a regimen that works for them. These simple steps should help start a workout program that can work for you and enable you to continue.

Get active: If you must sit at school and/or work, then move your legs and body about, but not constantly like a pendulum. Step outside during your lunch break or walk to get a drink of water. If you want to get in shape but you’re too busy to hit the gym, you need to at least get yourself up and active. Walk. Park on the far side of the parking area. There are lots of ways to do such things, and they don’t need to be very time consuming or costly at all. Make a point of taking the stairs rather than an elevator when going home or to work (split between stairs and elevator if you need to go up very high).Do squats while waiting for your food to cook. Walk around on your tiptoes.

Have a good workout schedule: it is important to note the areas of your body that needs increasing and decreasing, that way you can design a daily work out routine to achieve that beach body you have been craving soon enough. You can bike, which is a great way to work out and get yourself outside.Try jogging or speed walking or you can swim, which is a great way to work out your whole body.

Eat right, Eat on time: Bloating is most often a result of indigestion. it is very important to have a time limit where nothing more than water is taken after. Your meals should mainly consist of vegetables, legumes and cereals and fruits and make sure to eat all your calories before 3-4 pm to allow adequate time for digestion. Avoid sugary drinks like soda, and anything which is high in saturated or trans fats (partially hardened or hardened fats, margarine).


Drink Up: water is one of the best ways to keep your body soft, healthy, refreshed and hydrated, a hydrated skin is a glowing skin that tends to turn heads. Reduce the caffeine, sugar; alcohol and start drinking more water.

Sleep well: About 6 to 8 hours of sleep a day helps to speed up your metabolism as well as allowing your body to rest and flush out the excess nutrients. sleep is significant, you just can’t cheat nature can you?

Eat light snacks. Eat one snack in between breakfast and lunch as well as between lunch and dinner. This will keep you from getting faint or hungry and will also help you not to overeat when it’s time for meals.

Ditch the artificial: Getting a firm, healthy body demands sacrifices. Carbonated drinks and packed or processed juices may not be as healthy as they are presented. Ditch them and brew some nice green tea with grated ginger and lemon slices in it and have a good healthy time.

Sex is a pleasurable activity as well as a connecting one. Some people engage just for fun and pleasure but each time you have sex, you give a bit of yourself and take a little bit of the person. Like it or not, this connectivity makes sex a commitment. It is reported that most men have more orgasms than women on a normal sex day. Men release faster than women and sometimes the man goes limp leaving the woman with no orgasm due to the time space.
The art of sex can be much fun and can be frustrating as well. One can Ask, what am I doing or not doing right. Every man likes to have sex with a woman who enjoys it, screams his name and begs for more. If your woman doesn’t reach an orgasm every now and then, boy, you’re not doing something right.

ORAL SEX: Most young women are more likely than men to perform oral sex on their partner even if they don’t want to, according to researchers. Its always been a distasteful and big deal for men to perform oral sex on women. Men, please stop ignoring the clits, its needs some attention too and could help your woman in having orgasm.

NB: Ladies, please keep that cookie clean, fresh and smelling good so it can be properly “taken care of”

EXPERIMENT & SWITCH UP THINGS: Have fun and play. Allow your imaginations run wild during sex. Engage in a variety of sex acts.For example, vaginal sex plus oral sex would be linked to a higher likelihood of orgasm than either one of them alone. Explore all your body parts gainfully to achieve that earth shattering orgasm she deserves.

FIND HER G-SPOT: The G-Spot is an area of the female genitalia which is believed to possess a great amount of nerve endings that aid women to attain a stronger and longer orgasm. The location of the G-Spot varies in every woman. Tip for your quest; the G-Spot is mostly found inside the vagina and mostly surrounded by a rougher texture.

MAKE HER FEEL GOOD ABOUT HERSELF: A lot of women are insecure because some think they’re not good enough or don’t match up to a man’s standards. They’re thinking about how their face looks or what the fat on their belly is doing whether or not their cellulite is noticeable. If you need to make love to make her feel good about herself, take your time. Kiss every inch of her and make her feel she’s all you got. That way, she’ll  forget all her insecurities and allow her fantasies to come to play, then you can take her to her ecstasy and release.

TAKE YOUR TIME: This goes for both parties, it can take anywhere from a few minutes to mostly an hour to have an orgasm (20 minutes is typical, longer is totally normal). Orgasms are like childbirth: they take as long as they take, and each one is different. So just take your time and enjoy the upcoming pleasure.

AVOID DISTRACTIONS: Do not, I repeat do not be distracted by thoughts like, “What if this is taking too long?” or “What if my partner is bored?” or “What if I’m not even doing this right?” Just concentrate on pleasuring her and you will both have a wonderful and satisfying “joyful explosion”


NB:Mental exercises can sometimes work for men to delay their orgasm and so can firm pressure around the base of the penis. If premature ejaculation is a concern, you  may want to see a primary care doctor or urologist to find some techniques that might help.


Before any male steps out to go somewhere whether a wedding, hangouts, see some friends or any other occasion, he makes sure that his dressing is on point, looks and smells good,am sure you get where I’m going with this. But before he steps out of the door, he must make it a point not to leave these 10 things at home. Well, you may  leave some but not more than two. Here are the 10 things every male should  make it a point to leave behind when stepping out.

Cell phone:
You must definitely not leave your cell phone at home no matter where you are going even if it’s a visit to a corner shop. It can be useful if you will get to the location late or earlier than appointed Or others my reach you on it in case of  emergency. So please don’t leave it at home.


With this hot sun, you just can’t go out and face the sun without a cap or sunglasses. A cap goes for anyone actually but you can opt  for sunglasses because they add some style to your outfit even if they are not worn for what they were made for like protecting you from the sun.

In my opinion, It is very necessary for every guy to have at least one condom on him when going out. You never know what may happen out there, you could bump into an ex or even “catch a new fish” and you can’t control yourself, the condom becomes useful.

You can pick up your earpiece before leaving and play your favorite playlist and put them on.  I prefer earphones/earpiece because they are smaller and convenient. But make sure tune down the volume for safety reasons.

Handkerchief and a Backup:
This is a necessity to have on you when going out. You must have at least two on you or maybe one handkerchief and a face towel. The reason for the backup is that you might loose the first one or you might bump into someone who might be in dear need of it.

Charger/ power bank
This should be added if you will be out for a long time and you think your phone’s juice won’t last all the way. So this is to keep your phone charged and avoid walking around with a dead cell phone.

Wrist watch/Bracelet:
Men are mostly noted by their wrist watches but some don’t really digg the vibe from wrist watches. That doesn’t mean you will have to let your wrist go around naked. At least a bracelet in any form, whether beads, leather, rubber, ornamented etc. Just make them feel good.

A Wallet is like a portable folder or account that contains I.D’s, ATM’s, phone cards, money, passport pictures, etc. So if you decide to leave this at home, then you have a big lesson to learn. Even if you don’t have money in it, just pick it up and let it be in your back pocket, it may come in handy and it also creates some illusion of having cash even when you are totally broke, especially if it’s a fat wallet with lots of documents and small amount of money.

Small comb:
This option isn’t for everyone especially those with really down haircut. But if you fancy hair and you keep yours, get a small comb, put it in your back pocket and use it in a restroom when you get the chance to check yourself in the mirror.

This is mandatory, just in case you bump into someone who needs a pen or y or fill something out, you won’t be caught in hot waters.



Annoying things…..Men are very interesting creatures, so adorable. You wouldn’t even know what to do with them. They can be thoughtful, caring and so sweet that they make you fall so hard and yet there are certain things they do that are nerve racking and this can be so frustrating since we are having sex with them right? These men can drive women crazy— not in the (YOU DRIVE ME CRAZY) sense that Britney Spears has been singing about. I mean you drive me crazy in the “why are you this way” kind of way. Boys, ever wondered if the way you act sometimes make women cringe? There are certain that make us girls want to run far away and not come back. Here are some common things that men do that women secretly hate

⦁ “Just the tip” just the tip? Excuse me sir? No way! If your lollipop makes contact with my cookie there sure will be penetration and that is sex! And please stop making us out to be uptight

⦁ Getting mad when we have our periods like it’s our fault we have to deal with this monthly doom. Trust us we do not relish having to bleed for five days. We want to have sex too

⦁ Stop ignoring the clitoris. It has feelings too and oh stop asking if we came already

⦁ Being feminists doesn’t make all women man haters

⦁ Stop sending pics of your dick if we wanted to see it, we would have told you. No matter how impressive it is, it’s just not very romantic

⦁ Checking out other women while in our presence (boorish)

⦁ Stop skimping on your personal hygiene, take a shower and wash your cracK more often with soap, and whats with you guys not changing sheets regularly and also thinking it’s alright to keep wearing dirty socks and the overdoing it with the cologne thingy

⦁ Leaving the toilet seat up this one is a classic but let me ask, what is so difficult about putting down the toilet seat for Pete sake?

⦁ Getting upset when we steal your clothes, they are really comfy, okay? So please get over it. Plus we also look cute in it don’t even try to deny it.

⦁ Stop asking us to carry your stuff, get your own purse

⦁ Stop rubbing your junk on us when dancing in a club

⦁ When we tell you we are in a relationship, stop trying to get with us, not cool

Hey don’t get too worked up when you recognize some of the traits above in yourself, the deal here is not to change your personality but rather to keep certain female-unfriendly behaviors in check.
