Yao and lomwe of Malawi-Kusasa fumbi
In the christian faith , upon accepting Jesus, you would undergo water baptism as an outward sign of your inward faith and repentance .
For the Yao and Lomwe tribes of Southern Malawi in districts such as Chikwakwa, Salima and Sanje, se*ual baptism was a requirement for girls to be ushered into adulthood. Upon the onset of their menstrual cycle which is said to start at the ages of 12 to 17, the families of the young girls would send them to tsimba, (a s*x initiation camp) what would be the African equivalent of a summer camping in the western world.
During their stay in the camp which is said to last for some weeks, the girls were taught by a sex counselor known as anankungwi who would prepare them to take up wifely duties and most importantly how to perform in bed and please the men se*ually. Never mind that the girls were all minors between ages 12 and 17 but our Africa tradition is our heritage.
