The administration of President Muhammadu Buhari has witnessed a disturbing inflation rate of 16.5% according to the National Bureau of Statistics report for July, 2016 which has further impoverished the masses he was voted to give a glimpse of hope and survival.
The naira has continued its streak of hopeless free fall at both the interbank and the parallel markets without a correctional antidote to salvage its value. The prices of essential commodities in local markets have increased drastically including electricity tariffs that went up by 45% and fuel at over 60%.
All these and many other factors have culminated in scathing economic hardship for the already despondent masses. In the face of the hyper-inflation, there is a particular service in an unregulated industry that has suffered ‘subsidy removal’ without a reference in the media which is s*x.
S*x which is one of the basic physiological needs of man as well as a ‘joyous sport’ according Abraham Maslow’s hierarchy of needs Psychology theory seems to have been put beyond the reach of the average Nigerian men as much as food with an unprecedented hike in the prices at both the direct market (brothels and hotels) and the indirect market (social media).
The social media has recorded the influx of young ladies in the commercial capital of Nigeria – Lagos; hustling to ‘use what they have to get what they want’ from the available men.
