Prostitution became the only means through which a 36-year old Ghanaian lady, Katrine Obenewaa made her daily living. She has confessed to being the cause of sudden death of over 100 men and while rendering no fewer than 70 others impotent.
Ms Obenewaa made the shocking revelation on Samuel Mprah’s show on Bryt FM where she claimed she was introduced into prostitution by a Nigerian lady, Elizabeth Opeyemi at a very tender age.
According to Obenewaa, choosing prostitution was due to lack of support from her poor parents, adding that she started from local before moving on to international.
Speaking further, she said the Nigerian woman enticed her to take her prostitution business outside Ghana and she later spread her bounds to neighbouring countries like Benin, Togo and Burkina Faso.
In her own words, she narrated her story:
“I was initially working as a local prostitute but later went international after coming into contact with one Miss Elizabeth Opeyemi, an international sex worker from Nigeria.”
“My eight years of friendship with Miss Opeyemi was a great moment that saw me with billions of cedis.
“I was able to buy two separates six-bed room apartments from the monies I made through my sex business and now own a lot of other landed properties from this same sex business.”
Katrine said more than just prostitution, she became greedy and wanted more money so she decided to find some spiritual back up. However, her visit to a spiritualist turned out to be one of her worse decision.
The aftermath of her visit to the spiritualist was that any man she slept with, lost his life afterwards, and she confronted the Spiritualist who told her it was the price she had to pay for her wealth and that it was irreversible.
She confessed that over 100 men had already died, and 70 more were rendered impotent after sleeping with her before she eventually discovered what the cause was. According to Obenewaa,
“I am having a big regret over the whole situation, though I have acquired the needed wealth one could desire for in life, am still not a happy person because of this predicament in my life.
Prostitution is the practice or occupation of engaging in sexual activity with someone for financial gain or payment. Two factors are usually blamed for the emergence of prostitution as a profession such as sexual lust on the part of men, and poverty on the part of women.
The chief subsidiary cause common to both sexes is said to be a defective education, which is responsible for the ignorance of the simple principles of sexual biology, sexual hygiene, and sexual disease.
According to Archive, young boys and girls have been denied instruction in one of the subjects [sex] which are vital for their health and happiness. Hence they end up learning these things from their vulgar companions, stumble into love, courtship, and marriage, blundering and groping.
It is widely believed that venereal diseases and sexual sins are augmented because of ignorance causing women to fall; men to patronise the prostitutes, contract STDs, and carry them to their wives, all because of this ignorance via which society reaps wretchedness and vice.

The myth behind prostitution is that it is an ancient profession. When the government of New Zealand legalized prostitution, Julie Bindel, a freelance journalist and political activist, and a founder of Justice for Women wrote that prostitution is not a job.
According to her, the inside of a woman’s body is not a workplace. The freelance journalist reported that the country which decriminalised prostitution since 2003 has witnessed a surge in Trafficking of women into New Zealand into legal and illegal brothels. Even under legalisation, women are still murdered by pimps and punters.
Bindel wrote that when prostituted women become “employees”, and part of the “labour market”, pimps become “managers” and “business entrepreneurs”, and the punters are merely clients. Any government that allows the decriminalisation of pimping and sex-buying sends a message to its citizens that women are vessels for male sexual consumption.
She stressed that if prostitution is “sex work”, then by its own logic, rape is merely theft. The inside of a woman’s body should never be viewed as a workplace.

Some regions in Ghana has been marked as a hub for prostitution and Ashaiman is regarded as the biggest conglomerate of brothels. Other areas include Tsinai Agbe where these women are seen in a densely packed collection of tin shacks, beckoning men for patronage.

While money is the apex of the act, poverty, unemployment, peer pressure, sexual addiction, laziness, heartbreaks, loneliness, absents of adequate parental guidance, victims of rape and sex trafficking, psychological orientation, are the major factors people are tolerance of prostitution.
