You may call it penis captivus, a medical condition in which a woman’s vagina becomes engorged, trapping the penis during sexual intercourse. A situation, which health experts say, is easily resolved once the woman’s muscles relax, releasing the penis.
But that is not the situation for people in most African societies, who believe that black magic (supernatural powers or magic for evil and selfish purposes) is the cause. In such cases, no one is able to separate the couple unless the partner behind the magic intervenes or a medicine man is notified.
This is very prevalent in cultures within African countries like Kenya, South Africa, and Uganda. Over the years, several couples have been found stuck during the act, drawing crowds of curious onlookers who gather in anticipation of seeing the couple. Usually, the police would later intervene to restore order.
This year, Ugandans were shocked after such an incident happened at a hotel in the eastern part of the country.
A hotel staff found the couple struggling to separate after sex. It is reported that the man’s wife had asked a witch doctor to place a spell on her husband’s manhood.
In South Africa, this spell is known as muthi but is often placed on the woman. It is made to ensure that if someone other than the husband tries to have sex with her, he will remain stuck until the husband returns.
In Kenya, there are two types of this black magic for married couples:
“There is one that makes the man’s member go lame every time he is with a woman who isn’t his wife. The woman can apply the potion on the man’s member, others put it in food or rub it in the man’s boxers,” according to Martin Mulwa, a lawyer from Kenyan town, Ukambani.
“The second type is the one which a woman or man applies on the boxers or panties of the spouse and when either engages in extramarital sex, they get stuck. The antidote has to come from a real medicine man because there are a lot of fake specialists.”
There are still talks as to whether couples getting stuck is a myth or reality. But for a majority of Africans, this black magic is real and has come to stay, exposing cheating spouses.
Here are videos of some couples who were caught stuck in the act in what was believed to be the result of black magic:
