Uganda And Nigeria Top Google’s List Of Gay Porn Searchers

We see this story play out all too common in our society where the people who are most vocal about being anti-gay end up exposed to be homosexuals.

The connection between homophobia and suppressed homosexuality, has often been attributed to the notion that homosexual desires, when shut out because of some sense of shame, can easily express themselves as a form of homophobia.

It should come as no surprise that two countries on the continent that have sought to victimize people for their homosexuality turns out to be the most curious and active when it comes to gay porn on the internet.

NB: This article contains reference to content of an adult nature. Discretion is Advised.

Recently, Google published statistics listing the countries with the greatest number of searches for gay porn on the web and found Uganda ranked third, behind Kenya and Pakistan.

According to The Guardian, though Uganda recently passed legislation imposing lifetime imprisonment for homosexuality, the country continues to be among those with the highest number of internet searches for gay pornography.

In an all too familiar paradox of the forbidden fruit syndrome, Roger Ross Williams, director of the award-winning documentary God Loves Uganda, told the Huffington Post he believes the more government tries to repress sex and sexuality, the more it will continue to flourish underground.

An earlier report by the Huffington Post also revealed that Nigeria has a high number of frequent searches for gay pornography on the internet.

According to the Huffington Post, Nigerians in high volume search the internet everyday for ‘gay sex pics’ and ‘anal sex pics’, despite the country’s stand against homosexuality and outright ban on gay marriage.

While one can not conclusively say that the high number of gay porn searches on the net is reflective of country’s gay community, it is rather curious to know that even with strict repressive laws, these countries have failed to quell, if you may, the existence of homosexual interests.

Is just a result of curiosity or out-right hypocrisy by these countries? Is this a case of ‘we hate in others what we truly hate in ourselves’? – Phil Mphela

Khanyi Mbau Sex Dolls To Go On SALE!!!

Khanyi Mbau once leaked nude pictures of herself on the net - and pretended otherwise.

Khanyi Mbau once leaked nude pictures of herself on the net – and pretended otherwise.

CAPE TOWN – A company in Johannesburg has found a new way for men to have sex with Khanyi Mbau, without having to be filthy rich and driving a Lamboghini.

The Khanyi Mbau sex dolls, designed to recreate the appearance, texture, and weight of Mzansi’s self-proclaimed Queen of Bling herself, rival humans in both look and feel, with accurate anatomical functions of female genitals, complete with body hair.

These realistic-looking dolls’ private features are said to be the closest thing a man (or woman) can experience to being with the real Khanyi Mbau.

Manufacturers of the Khanyi Mbau sex dolls claim to have contacted this former sugar-daddy magnet to make the exact mold of her private parts, then recreate them using soft, realistic silicon. These are then installed on life-sized dolls for a realistic look and feel.

Linda Zwane, founder and president of the Khanyi Mbau sex dolls, said that he came up with the idea after being rejected by Miss Mbau because of being poor.

“Where else can a man experience the pleasure of being with Khanyi Mbau without the financial burdens associated with dating a girl like her?,” asks Zwane.

Linda also said that since the dolls are basically like any item any person can buy, it is legal in any province.

“You can go to any toy shop and buy Barbie or Spider Man, well these dolls are non-living, and just like any toy, they can be bought at a fee without breaking any law,” he adds.

Khanyi Mbau life-sized, realistic sex dolls will be available for purchase at popular brothels around Cape Town, Durban and Johannesburg from April.

Uganda Child Rape Festival Officially Launches

Kampala – The inaugural Child Rape Festival was officially launched this morning by State Minister for Ethics & Integrity, Rev. Simon Lokodo.

The festival, which will see girls as young as two-months-old being helplessly raped “the natural way”, has been unanimously welcomed by the parliament as it upholds Ugandan Christian principles, as opposed to two consenting adults engaging in homosexual sex.

Cutting the ribbon to formally declare this month-long event as opened, the beaming Rev. Simon Lokodo said the festival couldn’t have come at a better time.

“Men raping young girls has been a long standing tradition in Uganda, a tradition we are very proud of and wish to uphold with the greatest of honour,” Lokodo told reporters.

“Heterosexual rape is morally superior to consensual gay sex. It is men raping girls, which is natural… Raping the evil demons out of the girls will ensure that none of them turns lesbian, otherwise they will be jailed for life. So it is win-win for everyone,” Rev. Simon Lokodo went on to say.

Under the tagline “God Loves Child Rapists – Not Homosexuals”, the festival will present an array of child rape activities which will see the winner being awarded a “Yoweri Prize” for the most rapes, consisting of a diamond encrusted trophy named after Ugandan president, Yoweri Museveni.

Speaking to reporters, men in Uganda say they are already beginning to celebrate this “very innovative” way to “cure the gay epidemic” proliferating across the African continent.

“I have one advice for every man gunning for the Yoweri trophy; You are wasting your time…. I remain the undisputed serial child rapist in Uganda… The trophy shall be mine,” warned 43-year-old Keke Agaba, who claims that his rape victims are in their thousands.

29-year-old Israel Kaboggoza jumped in to say;

“I’m going to get the most rapes this year. I’ve been practicing all year by raping my sister and her friends every day. I will be rape superstar number one! I will get the Yoweri Prize this year for sure!”

Uganda is willing to give up all international aid in favor of its new Child Rape Festival, which makes it legally, morally and religiously acceptable to rape a girl-child as opposed to condoning homosexuality, which the country deem to be an “unnatural” act.

“We will not shy away from this, we want to rid this country of homosexuality and if that means these people – Obama, Hague, you name them – want to stop their aid then let them,” Simon Lokodo was quoted as saying.

“Homosexuality cannot be accommodated in our culture. We have taken that position as a government and prefer child rape because this is a democratic country and it is what the people want.”

Following the controversial anti-gay bill which was recently passed last week, the World Bank announced that it would suspended a 60 million new loan for health services in Uganda. Denmark, The Netherlands and Norway have all frozen aid to President Yoweri Museveni’s government. Washington is “reviewing its relationship” with Uganda over the law, which John Kerry, the US Secretary of State, compared to Nazism and apartheid.

Rev. Simon Lokodo further added that “these Western people – Obama, Kerry – they are married to women, yet they want to tell us our men should marry men. If that is so important, why does Obama not marry a man?

“Do not come into my house and tell me how to live, what food to cook, what to do, as I do not come to your house and tell you what to do. I would much rather rape a girl than kiss another man. At least that would be the natural way of having sex”.

President Yoweri Museveni could not respond on whether he would equally assign scientists to establish what makes a person heterosexual or whether there is such a thing as a heterosexual gene, the same way he did when trying to establish what makes a person homosexual. The UK ended all its direct budget support to the Ugandan government last year.

End Of The Road For Glen Lewis And Unathi

Unathi Msengana has been painted as a Xhosa dragon lady that can't work with anyone

Unathi Msengana has been painted as a Xhosa dragon lady that can’t work with anyone

THEY were the perfect couple! But now it looks as if a professional “divorce” is looming for The Avenue Metro FM breakfast show co-presenters.

DJ Glen Lewis and Unathi Msengana might no longer work together when the new line-up is announced. This because the two don’t see eye-to-eye.
 
A senior staff member at the station told Sunday Sun that they might be separated. The highly-placed source said Glen is not happy to work with Unathi.
 
“He feels Unathi patronises him,” the source told Sunday Sun.
 
Our source also claims that the legendary DJ had lodged a complaint in the past but was told his contract bound him to work with Unathi.
 
This allegedly happened after Glen officially requested to be removed from the breakfast team in 2012.
 
Apparently, he was told that his contract ends this year.
 
The source added: “Glen is not someone who has issues with people. He is a peaceful guy who minds his own business.”
 
A producer at Metro FM said things are tense in the studio.
 
“The sad part is that Unathi won’t have The Avenue show to herself. If Glen is out, it means she’ll have to go somewhere else,” said the producer.
 
According to the producer, Glen has no problem with Unathi as an individual – because he regards her as a lovely person.
 
“But Glen feels Unathi antagonises everyone. He feels that she is rude to the listeners.
 
“And even the marketing team feels that Unathi is too much,” added the producer who wished to remain anonymous.
 
Sunday Sun tried to speak to the two DJs but was told both of them were in rehearsals and their phones were off. The Sun Team was referred to Metro FM’s spokeswoman Happy Ngidi.
 
Ngidi said: “As far as I know, there are no issues. They both come a very long way as a team.” – Sunday Sun
