Coincidence?

10 Aug

What are the chances that I wold have a discussion with my coworkers about prostitution on the same day that I start reading Lolita?

I’m not sure it was entirely appropriate for me to explain that in America, on the whole women do not pay for sex. Apparently male prostitution is profitable in Rwanda. I have no idea why or how. Rumor has it that a couple of male coworkers accept money for sex from the school girls. Keep in mind that a student can be up to 25 years old here. My second thought after wondering why in the world a woman would pay for sex was if they’re paying then it must be something they want. So I tried not to stress out about safer sex and consent.

    Huh. That’s interesting and unexpected (at least to me). The juxtaposition is certainly a funny one…with Lolita being so much about the concept of the unreliable narrator!

      Right? Sometimes it feels like I live on another planet, not country here.
