Meet Sue - the Kenyan prostitute building a brand

When Sex is No Longer Sin
I just came across a blog supposedly written by Sue, a prostitute working on Koinange Street: Nairobi Nights. It has well-written and entertaining stories about a working girl in Nairobi. The stories are well written and quite entertaining.
"My name is Sue. I practice along Koinange Street, Nairobi. These are thoughts, observations and experiences from my prostitution world. Nothing of the soft, sympathy seeking topsy turvy kind. But straight talk, hard facts and real anecdotes. They are worth something."
The sexy 'girl' has already written 10 episodes so far, including blog posts with exciting titles such as "The Spiritual Role Of A Prostitute", "When Sex Is No Longer Sin", "Let The Pee Flow", "Why Should I Not Open My Legs?" and "I can't Feel Your Thing".

In her latest post, she refers to one of her teachers in high school who came up with an interesting metaphor, comparing a girl to a tin of cocoa:
"A female teacher in the mixed boarding school that I attended used to compare us girls to a tin of cocoa; you remember the one which had a foil inside. "The first time you let a man touch your breasts or private parts, then you have opened the lid. The moment you lose your virginity, the foil is gone. After that, every time you have sex, the cocoa gets depleted. If you are not careful the rightful owner will find there is nothing left for him". At the face of it, it was a polite way to dissuade us from adolescence sex, but a little deeper it implied we girls didn't really belong to ourselves but to some man somewhere, who was supposed to have all the cocoa. Our role in society it seemed was to prepare for this man."
And in another recent post, Sue writes:
"Our value decreases as your experience increases. Quoting five years experience is a turn off. Many a girl gets to prostitution telling themselves they wont do it for more than a few months, maybe six, save some money, start a business , hit it big in some way or get a 'proper' job. But a year goes and another still on the street. The optimal experience is about a year; when one is no longer surprised by the antics of men and all the inhibitions are gone. After a year there is a plateau and then the downward curve starts."
What do you think of this new Kenyan blog? Is it written by a 'ghost writer'? Is it polluting our blogging landscape? Or is it a nice addition to the scene?

Thanks for the intro to Nairobi Nights!

The virtues of the internet is that it doesn't have the rigid boundaries we set for ourselves in verey day society. It let's us be whoever we want to be regardless of what we are/do in real life. Here, we just let the creative juices flow.

Although I have nothing against people writing about all sorts of things, I didn't find this one to be compulsive reading. There's something unconvincing about the whole scenario. But I think others doing similar work should write a blog, then we'd see which one floats to the top.

@ solidfreshdope: Let's see where it goes. In the meantime Sue has posted Episode 11 "Of Coming Out Of The Closet" and Episode 12 "Too Tight for Men"...

@ The Spinster: Yes, she let's the juices flow indeed...

@ Simon: True, only future will tell which blogs can still survive.

I found your blog from the comment you made about on sue's blog about increasing her traffic. Seeing that only about five people replied here, I dont think it's right to give yourself the credit. She's a terrific writer and my guess is that she did it herself.

Rafiki said...

@ Kattie: Not Sue's pic, but a very beautiful pic indeed.

@ Anonymous: Well, my own site traffic stats show a lot of outgoing traffic from here to her site. You can also check out http://afrigator.com/blogstats/countryblogs/Kenya to learn more about some of the top ranked blogs in Kenya.

Rafiki Kenya has been famous for ages now! He doesn't need credit from the Nairobi Nights blog, it's the other way round.

Christel Heydemann is famous prostitute of Alcatel who does not work, has no knowledge and sucks cock of CEO and CFO to give her senior responsibilities. Corporate whore enjoys getting pimped in media as an achiever. She is a loser who opens her vagina to get what she wants in the company. She should try doing real work which produces results for the company, instead of promoting pussies, lesbians and shestrong bitches. What does this cunt know about HR ? She recites whatever her pimp teaches her.
