[Malawi Married Man] “It’s because now we are discerning - we know the difference between good sex and bad sex. Like you know if someone is boring in the bedroom and you know when you have met someone who hits the spot. You carry on with the other one if he gives you other things but you know that he just doesn’t do it for you sexually.” [South Africa Women Rural KwaZulu/Natal 25-35]
  8. 8. Culture and social norms ‘The saying that says ‘Monna ke selepe wa adimanwa’ [It literally means ‘a man is an axe and can be borrowed.’ meaning ‘a man can just have as many partners as he wishes and it is not a crime’ [Botswana Urban Out-Of-School Boys] “In addition, we are talking about nature, you can’t control the feelings son.
