Prostitutes in Zimbabwe now using bread packets as condom prices rises; also accepting vegetables, tomato, maize or beans as payment
News have it that some sex workers in Zimbabwe now using bread packets as contraception following the increase in price of condoms and basic essentials.
According to a 21-year-old call girl from Mutare who made it known that she started sex work at 16, they have resorted to using bread packaging as a substitute for condoms when they face shortages.
A medical expert, Dr Tendai Zuze, also confirmed the report in an interview with Manica Post.
He said it’s very risky because bread packets are not strong enough to withstand friction during sex, and can easily break and expose the user to sexually transmitted diseases or pregnancy.
