Media personality and actress, Destiny Amaka, has said that though some people criticise her for talking about sexual issues on social media, she feels she is doing God’s work.
She said, “Being labelled is something one cannot avoid. It is better I am myself and be labelled, than be someone else and still be labelled. I no longer care about things like that because of the demand for what I do. My inbox is flooded with real life issues. Without being blasphemous, I strongly feel like I am doing God’s work. Marriages and homes are being healed, and so are individuals. I hope to work with the United Nations to bring more awareness to this. It is deeper than just talking about sex and positions.”
Amaka also stated that many people were uninformed about sex. She added, “My motive on this matter is how uninformed many people are on such issues, yet we see every day, how perverse some people can be. Did you know that Nigeria was once one of the countries with the highest downloads of gay porn in the world? Who are we kidding? Women, just like men, want to enjoy sex. Gone are the days that we (women) would just lay there and keep quiet. For years, men have felt inadequate because of porn. Women have also been taught to not enjoy sex or be vocal, yet marriages crash daily because of this same issue. I spend at least 30 per cent of my time counselling married couples. The appreciation people show me for saving their marriages keep me motivated.”
Speaking further, the actress also stated that some Nigerians were hypocrital about sex. She said, “Some Nigerians are hypocrites. They act so righteous and condemn the things they do and desire. There are a lot of hypocrites when it comes to sex and the messages I get is proof of that. We are quick to hail the likes of Cardi B and Beyoncé whenever they bikini or other skimpy clothing, but if Nigerian celebs to the same thing, they would be abused.”
