I have always wondered why a man would think he could satisfy multiple wives when we always hear stories about him not being able to satisfy one wife.
People always make jokes about men having extraordinarily high libidos and that if he dies while having sex, it’s a wonderful way to die. We hear them say, “At least he died with a smile on his face.” Or they would say, “At least he died happy.”
I don’t think the Nigerian businessman died happy or with a smile on his face when his six wives raped him to death this past week.
Actually, he only made it to four of his wives because he died while en route to his fifth wife’s bedroom.
The husband was well known for his financial success and for his love of having sex with beautiful women.
Anyone with a lick of common sense knows that you can’t have six woman competing for the attention of one man without there being jealous rivalry in that household. In harems, you usually have eunuchs who guard the master and keep peace in the harem. Apparently, this man thought he didn’t need protection and that his women would happily accept their polygamous marriages.
According to news sources, it seems that his six jealous wives got together and planned the attack and when he got home at 3:00 a.m. and headed for the room of his youngest wife, they overpowered him and demanded that he have sex with all of them at once, starting with the youngest wife and continuing to the oldest.
When the man stopped breathing as his fifth wife was making her way to the bed, the wives all ran out, still laughing, but when they saw that he could not be resuscitated, they all ran into the forest.
Two of his wives have been arrested and they are still searching for the others. This is yet another case of a joke gone wrong, when something that starts out in fun, suddenly isn’t funny any more.
I wonder if this episode will have the men in that small Nigerian village rethinking the idea that having multiple wives is so wonderful. Maybe they will decide there are other less dangerous ways to relieve their boredom and release their sexual urges.
