“Sex for fish.”
That unlikely phrase is used in some lakefront communities in sub-Saharan Africa and other parts of the world where men catch the fish and women sell the catch to local customers.
Or if the supply of fish is low because of overfishing, several women may vie for a fisherman’s catch — and transactional sex may be used as a bargaining point.
The writer does not seem to have researched the question of whether commercial sex is more common around this lake compared to other parts of the same countries.
- “America, Home of the Transactional Marriage” (Atlantic); the NPR article implies that Africans are backward compared to Americans, but is it obviously worse to have sex for cash than to get married for the cash?
