Sex ban

9 May
Seven days.  He’s suing over lack of sex for seven days.  Really?
I’m kind of interested to see what happens.  Does Kenya have laws regarding a husbands’ right to sex?
Sex-Starved Kenyan Sues Women Activists
NAIROBI, Kenya (May 9) — A Kenyan man has sued activists who called on women to boycott sex to protest the growing divide in the nation’s coalition government.
James Kimondo said the seven-day sex ban, which ended this week, resulted in stress, mental anguish, backaches and lack of sleep.
The lawsuit filed Friday claims lack of conjugal rights affected Kimondo’s marriage and seeks undisclosed damages from the G-10, an umbrella group for women’s activists.
The women’s caucus caused a national debate when it urged women to withhold sex to protest increasingly frosty relations between President Mwai Kibaki and Prime Minister Raila Odinga.
Citizens of the east African nation are frustrated by a shaky coalition government, which was formed after post-election violence killed more than 1,000 people in 2008.

    Stress, mental anguish, backaches and lack of sleep? I don’t think he sounds healthy enough to be having intimate relations at this point. BACKACHES!! For crying out loud!

    I don’t know, but every time you read something like that….you know folks bring their cultural beliefs with them when they come to this country, so I’m sure it happens here, every so often you read about it. Marital rape, women/children sold into servitude, honor killings….it just rocks your soul sometimes.

    Okay, tone has become way to serious…..how is that engagement ring coming?

    Fear not, it is only knowledge. Yes, it is a tad unusual but then again it is a mad world out there.

      No fear, but now I’m going to go read some of your short stories, and in my mind I’m thinking of you as “the British anal sex guy” 😉

    Not sure, I believe it’s called irreconciable differences….but here’s one that will blow your mind:

    2009-4-12

    KABUL – Afghan President Hamid Karzai vowed Monday to change a law critics say legalizes marital rape to remove concerns that it violates human rights. The law, which sparked an international outcry after it was signed last month, says a husband can demand sex with his wife every four days unless she is ill or would be harmed by intercourse. It also regulates when and for what reasons a wife may leave her home alone. Numerous countries condemned the law

      I read about that!

      Jean, I think we need to write some laws about what we can demand every four days. Where shall we start?

    Beware of the facts. Kenyans do not regard anal penetration as sex in the medical sense. Therefore not having sex for an extremely long period (such as 7 days) does not necessarily mean that the victim is spending his nights developing hairy palm syndrome.

    It’s worth thinking about.

      Christian, I worry that you know too much about the ins and outs of anal sex in foreign countries.
