A middle-aged lesbian, Patricia (not her real name), has indicated that no man has been able to make her reach orgasm ever since she became sεxually active, thus her preference for women as sεxual partners – the only way she reaches orgasm.
Patricia, who said she has been a bisexual for a long time, now wants to be a full-fledged lesbian and says but for the stigma and illegality of same-sex marriages in Ghana, she would have settled down with her female sweetheart.
She made the comments in an interview on Class91.3FM’s Executive Breakfast Show on Monday, 27 November
Her comments come in the wake of President Nana Akufo-Addo’s statement in a recent interview with Al Jazeera that changing Ghana’s laws to legalise homosexuality is not a matter which is “on the agenda” but “bound to happen”.
Patricia emphasised that having had sexual experiences with both men and women, “I don’t find men naturally attractive anymore”, adding: “Kissing a girl is very different, the lips are really soft. The first time was a bit awkward but I just went with the flow”.
She added that on the aspect of having sεx with a woman, she gets “to understand her body more probably because of similarities in the body and knowing where to go and touch and the experience is out of this world”.
Patricia, who said her big sister is also engaged in lesbianism in the UK, said her family does not know about the sεxual orientation of the two of them, as their mother will be disappointed about the development.
She told show host Moro Awudu that she “does not want to hide it anymore but how to go about it publicly is challenging because Africans will not accept us. You can’t even display public affection [with your same-sex partner] because you could get stoned. Even if it is legalized, it is going to take the society a long time to accept you”.
For her, she will prefer travelling outside Ghana to settle in a country where same-sex marriages are accepted and practised without any stigmatisation or discrimination.[source: ClassFMonline.com]
