Some truths can only be revealed and discussed on my blog (unsaid of Africa). And yes, you read right, “Oral sex is illegal in Ghana.”
This revelation was made to me for the first time at an event organised by Rotary. The important question at this point is how many Ghanaians even know about this🙈. Well, it may have been a relief for you to know that Ghanaians remain ignorant because they don’t care about what two consenting adults do in the privacy of their homes but you’d be wrong to think that. They totally do! Your sex life affects them as long as you’re in Ghana.
As a volunteer with amnesty international Ghana, I had the privilege to be at this event where it was revealed that oral sex is illegal in Ghana. The seemingly most popular act in the Constitution of Ghana that talks about ‘the unnatural carnal knowledge’ has always been attributed to the illegalities relating to anal sex or sodomy. Constitutionally, the clause actually explains that the only legal penetrative sexual act is penile and vaginal. Every other penetrative activity is illegal and is an offense by law.
You should see people’s faces in the hall. An expression of shock,embarrassment and oh the guilt.😂 If there were cameras in people’s rooms, I bet the police would come and ransack the entire event empty including the pot belly influential persons who’d have stood by that act in the room. But how will anybody know but the culprits? That just contributes to the disappointment in a law such as this.
An American intern who worked with us wouldn’t stop making mockery of this act and I was darn ashamed of the thinking cap of a man that thought of a law like this. So ashamed🙈😂😂 Probably, the intent of whomever put this ignorant law in place was trying to illegalize homosexuality and instead illegalized anal sex and other forms of penetrative sex?
Many heterosexual couples practice anal sex while some homosexuals do not practice anal sex at all especially lesbians. So making anal sex illegal does not exactly do justice to the intent of the act which indeed is a display of ignorance and it’s embarrassing that it still remains in our constitution unrefined after so many years. Why couldn’t alittle research be done? Who signed that act with zero knowledge on human sexuality.🙈 Well, if it’s the typical Ghana I know, I can still imagine people yelling ‘yeah yeah’ for the act knowing they are going to do the nasty afterwards. Oh Ghana and hypocrisy 😂😂. They’ll all be acting like they don’t let their wives and side chicks go down on them. Ooops pardon my French, I forgot I’m in Ghana.😂🤦. I have to pretend too. What is oral sex again please?
After writing my article , Oral sex got me by surprise, you should imagine that pastor I spoke about in handcuffs at this moment after declaring his love for oral sex.
So let me ask you my darling reader, “How many years are you going to jail for?”😂😂😂😂. Let me know unless you in Ghana ofcourse 😓 then let’s pretend.
