A 24-year-old lady known as Beatrice(pseudo name) has shared her story of how she had to sleep with 600 men in a year just to survive in her prostitution/ashawo business.
According to her, sleeping with men has now become the order of the day for her even though she a student in one of the vocational schools in the country.
Sharing her story she revealed that her then boyfriend who was taking care of her abandoned her and she had to resort to sleeping with men in exchange for money.
“My boyfriend whom I met when I went to visit an uncle who 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 unemployed while my mother is a full time housewife. Sometimes, she sells vegetables,” she narrated
She went on to say that when her then-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 night club with her friends and a man took her to his hotel room. The following morning, the man gave her GH¢200 for services rendered and she was hooked.
Going further she explained, “They were paying me GH¢150 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.”
She again went on to say that she wants to now get married and settle down because the prostitution business is no more paying as it used to previously.
