This paper discusses sexual behaviour findings collected through eleven homogenous focus group discussions conducted among women and men in a predominantly Zulu population in rural KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. The objective of this paper is to shed light on sexual behaviour in a rural community. The findings suggest that sex is a taboo subject and the discussion around it is concealed in the use of polite language, euphemisms, and gestures. There are gender and generational dimensions to the discussion of sex. The contribution of this paper lies in the identification of what rural people discuss about sex and the influence of cultural practices and urban or global forces on sexual behaviour in rural areas. The paper adds to the growing body of literature on the use of focus groups in understanding sexual behaviour in rural contexts. This paper discusses findings on sexual behaviour collected through focus group discussions FGDs. The objective is to report on views about sexual behaviour in a rural community in KwaZulu-Natal.
South Africa is again hearing much about tradition from the Zulus. In the Nineties they claimed that tradition gave them the right to bear arms, with which to indulge in the odd bit of traditional killing. Now it seems to be all about sex. And just as the Nineties controversy over weapons was identified with one Zulu man, Chief Mangosuthu Buthelezi, so the sexual controversy centres on another. The succession of President Thabo Mbeki's one-time heir-apparent, Jacob Zuma, to the leadership had been expected to cement unity between South Africa's two great tribes, the Xhosas and the Zulus. Instead, a single sexual encounter threatens to plunge the country back into its old tribal hatreds. Zuma was cleared by a High Court judge in Johannesburg last week of raping a young family friend who was a house guest. The ruling, while settling the criminal case, is seen by many as the beginning of a battle for the future leadership of South Africa between Zulu traditionalists and Xhosa modernists. The strength of feeling on the traditionalist side among those participating in a quintessentially Zulu ceremony was made clear by 40 virgins who erupted in indignation when asked what their verdict would have been on Zuma. Thabo Mbeki didn't want him to be President.
She will be oh-so-grateful if you do not pressure her to discard those values. I let things slide often not thinking it is worth a battle. He's a devoted father and every ounce of free time goes to his kids.
