Episode 30: In My Clients' Shoes



A day or so ago someone sent me an email wondering how I could get tired in my line of work. This was after I mentioned in my last post that I was planning to take a break. The author of the email assumed that since mine is the business of pleasure, there was no fatigue associated with it. That, however, would be taking so many things for granted.  I will not go to the physical exhaustion that comes with running up and down the streets, too much drink, lack of sleep and such. Though I am experiencing a bit of that, it’s not exactly what I was talking about. I meant what, for lack of a better word, I will call boredom. Some sort of unexplainable low spirits, slackness, and a lack of enthusiasm has engulfed me. I have become a robot like person doing things for the sake of it, without any attachment, emotional or otherwise.

I have been experiencing this for the last ten days or so. The ennui has been building up slowly but since it’s not the first time I have experienced it , I am aware of the telltale signs. It starts with me becoming careless with my clients. Not making any effort to negotiate better prices or, like I usually do, trying to go the extra mile for their pleasure. Then I become edgy with my colleagues and generally with everyone. Most of the times all I want is sleep all day and night, skipping work. Previously when the weariness set in, I drunk and read a lot. But in the last few days none of that has been happening. I have been sleeping all day, wanting to be alone, and smoking countless cigarettes. I have been to the streets a few times, but being dull and slow, the days haven't been very fruitful. As regards this blog, I have been slow in replying to emails, messages on Facebook or even updating Twitter. Though I can partially blame it on the absence of a computer, the real reason is I am too gray to leave the house and spend an hour or two in a cyber cafe. (But as always, I will reply to each of the messages soonest I can. )

The good thing is that the boredom does not occur often, and only a few times has it lasted more than two weeks. In the past when the dullness did not wear out naturally, I overcame by taking a proper break out of town; sometimes going to my parents’ home in the village, or in better days retreating to a quiet Christian run guesthouse in Kericho. Because of some complications neither of that will happen this time round. 

So last weekend I decided to be a little innovative in trying to kill the lifelessness and breathe new life into myself. I had made some little money on Friday. Come Saturday night I went to a club in Buruburu. I sat alone next to the counter, drinking cold beer and listening to some lousy music. Around eleven in the night, and when slightly tipsy, I approached a man who looked in his mid twenties, and who was sipping beer not very far from where I was seated. I whispered, offering to pay him a small amount to have sex with me. He was a bit shocked but recovered quickly. I hadn’t expected him to say no. After a few more drinks I booked a room.

The man was not a good lover; he was not as adventurous and energetic as I would have wanted. He didn’t help me get the renewal which comes with having sex with a man who doesn’t know I am a prostitute. Perhaps it was the first time a woman had offered to pay him for sex and thus may have been anxious. Whatever the reason, he was a disappointment and a waste of money. Sunday morning I was twice as bored. I am still jaded.

  7. may be it was part lesson to you sue. have you thought about it from the angle of there are some clients who said the same thing you said after an escapade? "The man was not a good lover; he was not as adventurous and energetic as I would have wanted. He didn’t help me get the renewal which comes with having sex with a man who doesn’t know I am a prostitute"


    as always i love your blog sue.

  8. You feeling blue? Going on holiday, esp quiet place, may only make it worse. Take it out on pen and paper, not fur the blog, but for yourself. Whatever's worthy you can post here.

    But normally sex does the trick, but not for you. Maybe it is time you found God...just saying.

  14. Just listened to the interview- I recognise the voice! Now as I no longer live in Kenya I haven't been in communication with 'Sue' for a while, but as far as I know the owner of that voice is not a sex worker unless she is really clandestine about it. And even then her rates would not be as low as she says here judging form her lifestyle as I know it. Her parents do not live in the village, and she doesn't live in a studio in Pangani either

  15. i need to move to Nairobi, Kampala is boring, great piece sue.

  16. sue you are a 'killer' you blog just makes my day. Tell you what(about the burn out) when I was in high school I used to frequent a prostitute whom we will call Nduta. Since I was in a shaggs school on opening day is when I would call on her before I leave for school at times she would chips funga me even for up 3 days (food and drinks ++) I would make sure if I did not perform on one karoundi I would perform on the next. I think you should try 'Ndutas' way.

    ReplyDelete
  17. As for the one who says he recognizes the voice? Please some of us don't give a rats fart!!!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Sue, you shouldn't have to go to a cyber to reply to your messages. You need a laptop and at least a modem. Put a donate button here, I will be the first to donate. I can't believe all the other 'cheap asses' (yes I said it )who follow your blog didn't suggest this.

    ReplyDelete
  19. To the person who says he recognises her voice tell us more? I'm a lady who very much enjoys this blog and although I doubted it at first I'm now hooked. If this ends up being a hoax it will go from being a blog that empowers women (among other things) to being a blog that only serves to excite male fantasy (quite the opposite to the former purpose).

  20. I think Sue is just becoming her real self...I can easily picture her sitting among a group of regular professionals: journalists, doctors, lawyers and join in the conversation as they bitch about their "clueless" boyfies/hubbies, boring jobs, fatigue etc...whatever such "smart" chicks talk about...NOW,Sue is "smart" like all those other chicks in the pack, but she cannot just belong with the pack...it is just not possible in such company to talk about "street budges" of the type she alludes to na kadhalika na kadhalika...so that makes for a very bored and lonely chick I think. I think Sue needs to start cultivating her other side a bit more, to become the regular girl that she really is, if that is possible. The temptation to derail back is high, still its worth the attempt.

    ReplyDelete
  21. The post by someone saying they recognised the voice and that the voice does not belong to a prostitute: You are lying, if not then you are Sue herself.

    ReplyDelete
  22. When this blog started I had my doubts about who Sue was. With time I erased my doubts or rather became confused. I no longer care who Sue is. Also this blog has grown to that point where even if the real 'Sue' appeared, I wont believe its her.We can never who the true Sue is and we have to live with the fact that our minds have been fucked. In a way that is fantastic.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I agree with Lucy. I think if this whole storo is a hoax then this blog serves only to excite men and no longer promotes gal power. Can't we have both?
    Confused lady reader

    ReplyDelete
  24. The point is that reading this blog shows women that we can be whatever we want to be and be proud of it no matter how 'alternative' it is. If a hoax then this is some intelligent lady blogging for fun, not even for cash coz she gets enuff of that from her 9 to 5. Meanwhile men are loving the idea that they can hook up with this exotic lady for 2 thao!

  32. I simply love all the comments on this board asking Sue if she goes to church, if she know God, etc. etc... they make me laugh because Sue selling her kitty-cat is no more hoe-ish than those of us who sell our dignity or our honesty to some prick boss at a dead-end job, or who trade it for trinkets and toys that make us no money, and employ none of us, for things that we feel we need in order to impress others or show off. Besides, we know that many pastors are banging some of those church women who fall all over themselves, and trip over their own husbands and kids to go and kiss Bishop Pimpani's arse. We need to stop kidding ourselves. The world is only filled with either pimps or hoes, and at any given moment on any given day, you have to face that mirror and ask "Today, what role is mine?"

  33. And ahhh yes.. if a woman had offered to pay me for sex I would have known right away that she was a prostitute, because in offering to pay me money for the "rod of correction" she would be in effect asking me to pimp her, and if the money was right, hell yeah, I'd pimp the sh**e out of her funky a**, just for the hell of it, because if a lady can recognize this good game for a moment, then she's street smart, and that's what I need for her and I and any other woman that wants to get down and needs a real man to pimp her, while we build a life and an estate together, her and I, and live out our dreams, which she and her sister-hoes will help finance... you know, a five-bedroomed ambassadorial house on the coast, with a couple 4x4s, a nice shamba, a pool, where we can all retire one day, when we all get off these streets. Just me and you baby... we're just one more trick away from love and happiness Sue baby. Love you baby.

  40. A prostitute who uses the word 'ennui'? Really?

    ReplyDelete
  41. So because she is a prostitute she automatically has a low IQ or cannot have a wide vocabulary?

    ReplyDelete
  42. I have toyed with the idea of coming out in the open. I actually want to meet some of those who hve asked to see me and I will. Other than for the girls I work with, and my clients, only one or two other people know what I actually do. My parents, who luckily moved to the village, have no idea and so does any of our family members. I use some alibis. I even have some business cards, with my name, from the company at the airport where I work . I have been lucky none of my relatives have ever picked me from the streets, like it has happened to some.

    So do you work @ the airport Sue or sleep during the day? Bit confused..Good AJ interview there!

    ReplyDelete
  43. am also surprised that she could use that word. "ennui". Very expressive for your average???

    ReplyDelete
  44. Hi Sue,I must admit that you are a very bright girl.You have the interlectual capacity to be whatever you are and want to be,however I read a story from an anthology of short stories,the story's title was Africa Kills Her Sun.In it one of the characters was a commercial sex worker and when one of her clients asked why she choose that particular occupation her answer was;some women choose to be teachers others nurses I choose to be a prostitute.Dear to my question,are you on of Africa's sun that society had killed.Please read that story ,it has nothing to do with what you do but from your blog,I can tell you will enjoy reading it.You can find it in a book known as Encounters from East Africa.You are a wonderful writer,you hold power with your pen and if you ever want to change your proffession,please go into writing.

  57. Sue, you are damn crazy sweet in all manner of thought and actions! your blog is really moving,involving, enticing and inciting! one would wish he was the lucky 'chap chips funga'. Nevertheless, these pieces are pure fiction pieced together by a sharp intelligent being who knows what she is doing! it is very entertaining, however!

  58. At first i was skeptical,i really wondered why someone who could write so well and seemed witty would peddle herself out there in the cold with the kanjo on her case.If you truly are you need to redefine yourself,i believe you are selling yourself short.In the event that you are not a slut and are a bored housewife or accountant and keeps alive in this fantasy fiction,thank you for sharing its entertaining.As for Chips rather sausage funga,you should get a gigolo to do it,like the episode on season 3 of secret diaries of a call girl

    ReplyDelete
  59. Sue are you sure this blog serves to enrich society or to just destroy it further? There is a reason why prostitution existed mainly in the fringes of society for eons. Surely even you know prostitution breaks up families and the children suffer. I know you and your supporters, who judging by their comments in your blogs are firmly in your corner, will counter by saying that men are not forced to the prostitutes and that its a case of willing buyer willing seller of which I ask, using that same logic why the government bans selling of drugs. I mean, nobody is forced to do heroine by the drug dealers and if you try to use addiction angle as an answer to my question I can also use it to push you and your supporters back. People get addicted to sex, no?
    I feel that your blog, with its interesting posts and all that should be such that you have to sign up to read. Atleast that way you will appear to care.

  70. Oh Sue,had to search out your blog after I listened to you on Aljazeera.I wish you could just find life in Christ Jesus.You are very above average,in fact intelligent.You should have figured that this life will not sustain you after sometime ,moreso eternity beckons.Any of us could die anytime.Have you seriously thought of a life outside the one you live now?.It's a cool blog and all but you could use this space for other .Your experiences are no doubt,real but you could use it to save women like you who are drowning in this lifestyle and leading a most frustrated life.Change is constant and if you do decide to make a change,I bet you,you will be amazed.God bless you always.

  75. Sue has too much of a social life. Her social life is her job. When she is free she should do actual work with less than close interactions. Maybe she should start a biz like selling novels or spirits instead of reading n drinking respectively.

    It will give her a break from emotional attachment. I think she paid the guy to make her feel in control. It was absolutely unnecessary to pay...
