In Oyam district in northern Uganda, women are considering using sex as a way to increase agricultural production.
How? By boycotting it!
According to Ms Hellen Odur, the chairperson of women’s farmer group, lazy men would be denied sex so that they would be forced to assist women on the farm.
Her sentiments were shared by the district’s LC5 chairman, Mr Nelson Adea Akar, who challenged women to stop offering sex to ‘lazy husbands,’ who only waste their time and energy consuming alcohol.
“Somewhere in Apac District, women tried this trick and it worked so well. If your husbands are lazy and are not helping you with garden work, go and dig alone, but at night when they ask for sex don’t give them. It will not even take one week before they start going together with you to the garden and even working harder to please you so that they can benefit from sex at night,” Mr Adea, reports the Daily Monitor.
Akar made these comments during the commissioning of multi-million modern milling machine, which was donated by Uganda’s Ministry of Agriculture to the women’s farmer group in Abok Sub-county.
