Nollywood actress Victoria Inyama has differed from her colleague, Anita Joseph’s position on what has come to be popularly referred to as marital rape.
Anita Joseph had in a video made with her husband, argued that a woman cannot claim her husband raped her if he had sex with her when she wasn’t in the mood. The actress opined that the body of a woman is the food of her husband and should be made available whenever he needs to feed from it.
However, Inyama argues that lovemaking should be by mutual consent, and no man has the right to force a woman into the act against her wish. According to her, she has been a victim before and it leaves a woman damaged.
She shared a video on her Instagram with the following words, “Marital Rape is a form of Domestic violence & sexual Abuse, historically sex within marriage was regarded as a right of the spouses, But engaging in the act without the spouse’s consent & then Penetrating in now widely classified as Rape! Marital Rape is more widely experienced by women than men”.
“Cultural practices, Religion & societal ideologies contribute to its acceptance. Circumstances do vary but Because it’s a Norm Doesn’t Make It Right! ⁉️⁉️”
