Imbiza, a traditional sex supplement, so popular amongst truck drivers may actually not be a good thing to use for them. Imbiza causes men to be hyperactive and at the same time inhibit their reasoning capacity which may lead them to end up engaging in unsafe sex practices.
A truck driver under the influence of imbiza is more likely to get infected with Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) as his decision making becomes distorted by what he will feeling.
Just because he has to offload, the affected truck driver may be forced to engage in unsafe sex, as long as he relieves himself.
A headman in Zimbabwe, recently confirmed during a National Aids Council (NAC) brother-to-brother session at Ndamuleni village in Lupane, The Chronicle reported.
Speaking during the session, Ndamuleni headman Philani Ncube said imbiza/isgubhu increases men’s libido, causing them to desire sex “all the time”.
Isgubhu makes a man visible in the bedroom, it actually gives them existence all the time.
For truck drivers, imbiza becomes even more dangerous as frequent sexual activity drains them the energy that’s required to see them through the long driving hours.
Ncube said that men failed to understand that isgubhu was used by our forefathers because they had many wives whom they had to satisfy while today’s men use it and end up sleeping around with multiple partners.
“They just drink it while they have one wife, resulting in them sleeping around because women cannot stand the roughness that comes with it,” Ncube said.
That increases the chances of the men to contract and spread HIV and other STIs.
Other truck drivers use imbiza to cover up for cheating so that their partners don’t become suspicious if their performance is under par.
“When I go out with my side chicks and I do not want my wife to find out, I will drink imbiza,”
“After I drink it, I will still have the usual or more energy even if I’ve used some on someone,” said a participant at the meeting.
With isgubhu, a condom will surely break, it comes with too much energy and roughness, thus leading to the spread of HIV.
Ncube said isgubhu tends to make men reckless and may not use protection under its influence.
These things tend to make hormones overcome someone’s thinking capacity and the chances of one thinking about protection are very slim.
Isgubhu pushes them to do whatever satisfies the body at that moment. The assumption is that the supplements actually boost a man’s confidence and help them earn respect.
It has killed the nation because a man who uses imbiza is not safe from HIV.
Village head Siqalekiso Sibanda said the traditional sex enhancement supplements should be banned or at least men should be made aware of the side effects.
