Flabbergasting: Meet the Swahili Tribe where Newlyweds Must have S£X in the Presence of a Mentor

It’s no news that Marriage is a formal union between a man and a woman who have chosen to unite their lives legally, economically, emotionally; and therefore has become socially acceptable by society for recreation, partnership, companionship, financial support and equally to share their joy, tears and happiness together. Regardless of that, many people get married for different reasons.

Courtship, as we all know is a process where intending couple study each other to know whether each poss€s the quality that will enable them to live together as husband and wife.


The Swahili people are a Bantu Ethnic group inhabiting East Africa. Their language is WaSwahili. Members of this ethnicity primarily reside on the Swahili coast, in an area encompassing the Zanzibar Archipelago, Littoral Kenya, the Tanzania Seaboard, Northern Mozambique, the Comoros Islands, and the Northwest Madagascar.

In the Swahili Tribe, there is a marriage custom where a newly wedded couple has to have their very first s£x in the presence of a mentor. Sounds strang€ right?


In the Swahili Marriage Custom, when courtship comes to an end and the woman agrees to marry the man after her heart, her family then gives her a mentor.

This mentor trains the woman on how to satisfy her husband in bed. The mentor also trains her on how she should handle her maid in their house so as to prevent the maid from entering into their (the couple’s) matrimonial bedroom.


Now after the wedding ceremony, the mentor of the woman will get into the bedroom of the newlyweds and hide under their bed. In this stage, both the groom and his bride are aware that there is someone under their bed, but they would still go ahead to do whatever they want to do.

This way, the marriage is consummated in the presence of the mentor. In other words, they have their FIRST S£X.


As claimed by the Swahilis, the reason the mentor hides under the couple’s bed is just to check whether they have done their honeymoon well.

Hmmmmm…. This is so Flabbergasting Indeed!
