Prostitute, Runs Girl And call girls ( The Argument)

Published

on

I wonder why this is even an argument in the first instance. Prostitute and runs girl are not the same? It beats my imagination to be honest. I have often bumped into this argument on this same subject and all I do is listen and watch With rapt attention even as the debators try really hard to press home their points convincingly.

So the typical and inquisitive me decided to do a little research to ascertain why is this even an argument at all, and so I embarked on a journey to find answers from some folks that ply this trades and I was able to come up With some tiny Winnie bits of answers.

But first, who is a prostitute? According to dictionary definition, a person, in particular a woman, who engages in sexual activity for payment. Put differently, offer (someone) for sexual activity in exchange for payment. Hmmmm! Now if u notice in those definition, you see that there was never a time where it was mentioned that a prostitute has to be stationed or not to offer her services. So long there is an exchange for money for sex no matter the location is called prostitution.

I had to throw that in because this is usually the basis for this argument. Let’s switch it up a bit. In Nigeria, a sex worker is often referred to as Ashawo, and over time, the word was enshrined into our lingua franca the pidgin English and often code switched in a conversation.

Countries like Ghana and the Cameroon, also refer to sex worker or prostitutes as ashawo. But originally, ashawo is a Yoruba word for prostitutes. The proper word is “Ashe’wo” and not ashawo. It is a word from the Yoruba language, a tribe predominant in South West Nigeria. The word is used for prostitute or sex worker. It was derived originally from the practice of those workers giving change to their customers or johns after payment. Owo means money or payment, and those persons that consistently giving change in their trade were called that name because people would rather not call them by what they did exactly.

It’s mostly used as an insult in arguments and verbal fights and it’s what some Elderly Nigerian women call other women who are “skimply” dressed to shame them. And as time went by, the word evolved to words like Runs girl, olosho, ayangba, okpo just to mention a few. Now the argument began when some group of ladies who call themselves runs girl said that they shouldn’t be referred to as ashawo as prostitutes. And another group that refer to themselves as call girls simply don’t see themselves in the same category as the last two.

Now this is the argument proper. A runs girl refers basically to a girl who uses her body in exchange for other kinds of favors, mainly financial. .or  is any girl who is blatantly lazy or not content with her salary, income, allowance, because her personal income will not get her to her destination.

This group are of the believe that so long as they are not stationed in one place where they meet their clients then they are not an ashawo or prostitutes. And Oh, the olosho group are the ones that stand by street corners to wait for their clients and they can also offer their services at a corner where no eyes can pry. They also don’t like refferd to as Ashawo or prostitutes hmmm.

Next stop are the call girls whom often see themselves as the high class kind of sex worker. They offer services to high and important clients They cringe when they are called Ashawo. If you are not careful enough, you can get hurt if you call them that. So I took the liberty of visiting one brothel to get first hand response and I did. As I arrived at one of the brothels one evening, I went to sit at their bar and a tall beautiful lady approached me and she said “bros good evening. Make we go inside na. I go give you back and front o” she smiled rubbing her buttocks as she turned for me to have a view. I smiled and said “sit down let me buy you a drink ” she happily sat and we began to converse.

I was shocked by all what she said and warm reception. She said “bros all of us the same o. Weda you be runs girl abi olosho. Na the same work all of us de do.me wey de stay hotel and the ones wey de stand for road or wey de go meet man, we be the same bros” Another response from a runs girl, she said “I am not a prostitute. Am just a hustler who uses what I have to get what I want””it’s not about money for me all the time, but there is usually an exchange for my body for something ” my last response was from a call girl whose response is almost similar to the runs girl but the difference is she said ” i don’t do anything less than a million or I might just decide to do less depending on my mood. But am not a prostitute or an ashawo ” hmm.

So you see the aguement as it stretches across different set or class of people with different views to their business or trade. The matter long aswear. But either way, the definition says it all. Where there is an exchange of money for sex be it man woman then the word prostitution has happened. Shalom.

In the new issue, which would be out July 20, Dr. Biden addressing the magazine (FLOTUS), discusses about the numerous drives she needs to handle during her husband Joe Biden’s administration.


Dr. Jill Biden feels Joe’s calm attitude has helped shift the entire mood of the country since he got down to business.

“When I travel around the country now, I feel as though people can breathe again. I think that’s part of the reason Joe was elected,” she said in a profile cover story. “People wanted someone to come in and heal this nation,

“He’s just a calmer president. He lowers the temperature,” she added.

Vogue magazine features Jill Biden as it’s cover star only half a year into the Presidency term. It broadly censured previous First Lady Melania Trump by declining to include her on its magazine during her husband’s whole turbulent stretch in the White House.

Published

on

By

Footwear or shoes in general are part of what makes our dressing and outfit complete and perfect. Especially in a business environment like the office the type of shoes we rock is very important because firstly it has to be very comfy. Today on almaplusblog, we will be checking out some casual business shoes for guys.

There’s no denying that shoes can have a huge impact on the overall appearance of any outfit. So, when you’re aiming for a specific dress code, carefully considered footwear is essential. For business casual attire, that means picking a pair of shoes that appear both stylishly relaxed and suitably corporate. Thankfully, there are several styles which you can always rely on to give your everyday office wear the easygoing polish it demands. Add a pair of each of these business casual shoes to your work wardrobe, and you’ll never be over or under dressed again.

So here are 7 business casual wear every man should own.

1. Loafers

If you don’t already own a smart pair of loafers, it’s time to add some to your collection. These slip-on, laceless shoes are an essential item for any man and can easily be adapted to a business casual setting. To do so, try rocking a pair of brown or black leather loafers with chinos and a button-up business shirt. Just remember to keep your shirt tucked in and add a matching belt to ensure a suitably polished appearance for the office.

2. Oxford Shoes

A lot of men make the mistake of thinking Oxford shoes can only be worn for formal occasions. However, that’s simply not true. When styled correctly, Oxfords can suit a variety of occasions, including those that have a business casual dress code. To wear Oxfords to work, pick a pair in black or brown leather. To ensure you don’t appear overdressed, be sure to avoid patent designs. Of course, if you’re still feeling a little too formal, you can always opt for Oxford’s more casual cousin, the Derby.

3.Derby Shoes

The Derby is another classic dress shoe style and an excellent addition to any business casual wardrobe. Thanks to their timeless and minimal design, Derbies work great with a wide range of outfits. The key to making them look great in the office is to create balance with your outfit. To do so, try wearing classic leather styles with more relaxed ensembles and suede designs with more formal looks.

4.Monk Strap Shoes

The monk strap is sleek yet cool enough to take you from 9 to 5 and beyond. Their formal and sophisticated design ensures they’re appropriate for the office while their unique and stylish appeal also means they can work for after-work drinks and weekend events. When shopping for monk straps, we’d suggest going for a shiny leather design for a refined yet statement style.

4. Chelsea Boots

Boots may not be the first shoes that spring to mind when you think about business casual footwear. However, they can actually be incredibly stylish and comfortable and can create an effortlessly refined look. They feature a round toe with elastic sides and can slip on and off quickly without laces or a buckle. As such, they achieve a cleaner aesthetic than other boots.

6. Chukka Boots

Since booming onto the men’s fashion scene in the ’40s, Chukka boots have been a staple item for the business bro. Chukkas are a round-toe, ankle boot, with two or three lacing eyelets. Traditionally featuring just two panels, these are minimal and professional shoes that are still stylish enough to add an element of casual cool to your corporate attire. We’d suggest a suede pair in a muted color such as tan or beige. Pair them with your favorite skinny or boot cut jeans or chinos and a polo or short sleeve button down. For the colder months, these shoes also work great with sports coats and casual trenches.

7. Dress Boots

Casual clothing and street-wear have been slowly creeping into the business world for some time now, so you shouldn’t shy away from adding an edgy pair of dress boots to your rotation. They can be a great way to let your personality shine through while keeping your look professional. From Chelsea and chukka styles to brogue and Derby designs, there is a lot of variety, so you shouldn’t struggle to find a pair to suit your style and dress code needs. Dress boots traditionally come in black, brown, and tan. However, other colors are available. We’d suggest going for a muted shade and styling them with a slick pair of chinos, jeans, or trousers.
