How would you describe a lady who slept with over 600 men in one year? You certainly won’t be wrong if you call her a se.x machine or queen of se.x. Twenty-four-year-old Beatrice Okeke (not real name), a student of a vocational institute in Owerri, the capital of Imo State, performed the feat, as it were.
Indeed, for Beatrice, se.x is a way of life, a daily routine. According to her, she resorted to using what she has to get what she needs when her boyfriend who was sponsoring her education abandoned her following lies told against her by jealous friends.
“My boyfriend whom I met at Onitsha, Anambra State when I went to visit an uncle was sponsoring my education. We had agreed to get married as soon as possible. Then some people I regarded as friends started peddling wicked lies against me and without confirming if what they were saying was true or false, he called it quits just like that. They told him I had an incurable disease. So, I decided to help myself because my parents cannot do anything for me. We are poor. My father used to be a driver but he is now a lumber jack while my mother is a full time housewife. Sometimes, she sells vegetables, ” she explained.
She said that when her boyfriend walked out of the relationship, she got a job in the bar section of a hotel but her take-home pay could barely take her anywhere. So, one day, she went to a nightclub with her friends and a man took her to his hotel room. The following morning, the man gave her N15,000 for services rendered and she was hooked.
Consider what she said: “They were paying me N10,000 a month and you work late hours. But if you go out to hustle in the night, you can get that kind of money within a day or two. About 600 men slept with me from last year to this year.”
But Beatrice is now singing a different tune. She said that she later discovered that prostitution is not as lucrative as she had thought.
She said that she is tired of warming men’s bed every night, adding that she wants to settle down.
Below is excerpt of the conversation she had with the reporter:
I’m not fine
Wetin dey do you?
I’m really broke
How do you mean?
I don’t have money to take care of myself.
What happened to all the money you’ve been making?
From your night outings
I don’t have any money, please.
So, you were doing it for free?
Not like that; there is not much money in it.
So, I’m not going anywhere again. I’m looking for true love. The one that will take good care of me.
How much were you making per night?
Sometimes N5,000 or more. Sometimes a man will sleep with you and in the morning he will start telling you stories, saying he has no money.
In such situation what do you do?
What can you do? You just go home.
When did you start hustling?
About how many men have you slept with?
About 600 men slept with me from last year to this year.
How many since you started?
That is all, sir.
Are you truly promising that you won’t do prostitution again?
Yes, I promise.
How many abortions have you done?
Two times. I’m telling you the truth.
Help is on the way and only the truth can set you free. How many times?
Do you have children?
None at all?
How many times have you been to native doctors?
I have not been there.
Do you really mean that you slept with only 600 men from last year to this year?
Can you remember the first time you had se.x?
How? I don’t understand.
The first time you slept with a man
The person was your boyfriend?
Not really a friend.
He impregnated me and left me. I was in SS3. That happened in 2009.
How old were you when he got you pregnant?
18 years. My final year in secondary school.
Did you complete secondary school?
Did you abort the pregnancy?
You did it in a hospital or chemist shop?
Yes, in a hospital. The man gave me money to abort it.
