You people will say I have come again. With talk about sex. But try as I might, I could not resist writing about this matter.
First of all, to all the ladies out there, raise your hand (using the comment box if you wish) if you’ve ever had your hair pulled while doing the naughty…
ME: *throws both hands up*
Of course, I wouldn’t be talking if I haven’t had this experience. And while I really don’t mind the act (I’ve come to like it a lot actually), it hasn’t always been nice. The first time it ever happened, it was a rude awakening; a real shocker; a ‘did he just do that?’ moment. I swear, I went cold immediately. All the desire just seeped out of my body like air from a deflating balloon. I was stuck somewhere between wanting to shout in anger and scream in agony. Yes, Mr.Dude didn’t do it right. He tugged like his life depended on it. And maybe his life depended on it, because he tugged just as he came. Nonsense guy. The Scalp Remembers!
Anyway, after that disaster, I tried to plan my hair styles very carefully. If there was a chance of ‘rain’ (you know I don’t mean real rain), I stayed away from the long weaves and the braids. But those were on the occasions that I had foresight. For the occasions that ‘took’ me unawares, I held on to my hair mehn, for dear life. So that the human being behind me wouldn’t get any tugging ideas. A sister cannot come and go bald in the name of sex. Imagine having to explain to someone why you lost your hair. God forbid! It sha took a few more tries and a very careful guy before I developed a ‘taste’ for it, and while I enjoy it now as a normal part of the routine, I’m still puzzled as to why it ever happens in the first place.
So, gentlemen, can you tell me/us why you feel the need to pull a lady’s hair during sex? As far as I know, most of us Nigerians didn’t grow up riding horses, so we didn’t pull any reins. Why do you now want to treat her like a horse? Could it be that when you’re behind her, you feel like you’re riding? Actually, maybe that’s not too far from the truth, because on occasion, a lady can get a smack on the butt in addition to her hair being pulled. I can almost hear the boys shouting “Yee haa!” as they gallop along.
I’ve come to the conclusion (and I may be wrong) that there must be something erotically empowering about pulling a woman’s hair. It must be that pulling her hair keeps her in place and makes her even more submissive because she can’t make any sudden moves once hair is in hand. Otherwise, she risks a lot of pain, or the loss of a really expensive hair piece. It must be that when man has woman’s hair in hand, he has complete dominion over her (for that time anyway) and it makes him feel like a god. Maybe it’s even that with hair in hand, woman might scream or shout or moan and possibly beg, thus resulting in a huge turn on for man. All of this is conjecture, as I can’t say that I know for sure.
You’re probably thinking “why didn’t you ask the man(s) that pulled your hair?” Well, I did. And they could not explain it. I don’t know if they really couldn’t, or if they were just embarrassed about the reason. So I’m hoping we have a more articulate crop of men here who will be able to help us understand the intricacies and benefits of pulling women’s hair during sex. If you can shed light on this puzzling sometin, you’ll be doing me and a lot of girls out there a huge favour.
For those boys who haven’t tried it before and think they will jump in as a badt guy just because they’ve read this post and now know that there’s a possibility that the girl will like it, try it at your own risk or peril. The only advice I can give you is, start slowly and gently, so that you have plenty of time to quickly leave the hair and pretend you weren’t trying to do what you were trying to do when she turns around and gives you the look of the WhiteWalkers.
