A Ghanaian hookup lady, simply identified as ‘Sugar’, says she declined marriage proposals because she finds gratification in hookup job, Newsbreak.ng reports.
‘Sugar’, a mother of one, said she lied to her daughter that her father is deceased. She claimed that she gave this false information to her daughter because the man abandoned her while she was pregnant.
“I told my daughter that her father is dead. Yes. That guy left me when I was pregnant. Though he is still alive, to my daughter, he is a dead man. I have turned down marriage proposals because I am still enjoying my hookup job,” Sugar, 24, said in a recent interview with broadcaster, Arnold Mensah Elavanyo.
Prostitution in Ghana is illegal but widespread, so much so that many Ghanaians are unaware that it is prohibited.
There are growing sex tourism, child prostitution and human trafficking. High rates of unemployment and poverty in Ghana are believed to be causing a drastic growth in the sex industry. Unemployment is a reason the teenage engage in sex trade. A high percentage of sex workers are vulnerable to Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV).
Some prostitutes in Ghana are campaigning for the sex trade to be legalised, and discussions have taken place.
