Years ago, reports claim, exuberant from an evanescent improvement in the Jamaica economy, the then Prime Minister made a declaration that was totally antagonistic to prudish behavior. ‘Now is the time for every man to have on the side him “bups”, aka beef’ or more plainly, female Jamaican sex slave.

Incest, fathers abusing step children, and grooming of young boys by older men who have sex with men are entrenched, well known illicit practices. These, although not openly spoken about in the society, are widely acknowledged by most Jamaicans.

Recently a family and marital therapist visited Jamaica and engaged several young female hotel workers at one of the island’s largest, very successful resorts in conversation about their intimate sex life, sense of security in relationships, and potential for progress in society. Repeatedly these women described tales of desperation. Sexual favours were expected, more correctly, demanded in exchange for security and survival.

Dons demanded unprotected sex from daughters trying to educate themselves away from teenage pregnancy and out of the attendant poverty, gloom and doom. Hapless, helpless mothers were prisoners to their own fears, the potential of serious harm to, and possibly death of their children, and the muzzle of M16 and other assorted deadly weapons should they fail to willingly cooperate. Lawless, evil, cowardly goons whimsically run amok throughout lower income inner city communities. Offered as evidence is the recent spate of murdered pregnant teenaged school-girls, unfortunately engaged in conduct, for which their innocent minds and young developing bodies were not yet prepared.


In more economically stable and educated communities the power of money, as per the former Prime Minster’s directive, was to enslave women to ‘respectable’, no despicable men, made so because of their flaunted wealth. No sex equates with no job, no promotion and no secure relationships.
Meanwhile sexually transmitted diseases including HIV/AIDS, hepatitis B, syphilis, gonorrhea, HPV and others abound; needlessly.

In these circumstances is it reasonable to conclude that Jamaican women are reckless with sex. Or are they in bondage as sex slaves? With no possible way out. Even the clergy, if news reports are correct, are exhibiting the same behaviour of the dons, goons and well financed. Some laud David as being a man after God’s own heart, emulating his sexual misdeeds like the affair he had with the wife of Uriah, the leader of his army.

They conveniently forget the subsequent misery, and untold damage inflicted on his family. It is surprising these men of the cloth would overlook the more exemplary conduct of Joseph. Despite being hounded by his master’s wife to be enticed by, and suffering imprisonment for refusing, he held firmly to his principles. His redemption was not only ascension to second in command of the kingdom of Egypt, but an exemplary family of his own.

Paralysed by their thirst for votes politicians are not surprisingly, in the midst of this societal orgy, impotent. The true principled leadership needed to tackle head on this deviancy is sadly lacking.
It is an open question as to why it is impossible for parliament to pass laws requiring gazetting, at delivery, the name of both parents on a child’s birth certificate. The availability of DNA technology should make this very easy. Maybe there are not enough female parliamentarians! Or is it that the epidemic of orgies has made the entire society numb? Maybe, too many skeletons would start tumbling out of tightly sealed closets. Or could it be that laws are most successfully and easily passed when self rather than the national interest prevail! Maybe, just maybe, this is uniquely a Jamaican way of life with which everyone is truly contented.

Imagine a Jamaican society invigorated by the remarkable anti-sex abuse awakening now bursting irresistibly forth in the USA. The remaking and reshaping of the society, especially its positive impact on family life, would be immense.

Northern Caribbean University seems well positioned to facilitate this conversation. Already in place is a well established radio station, theology department, programs in family life and a large campus church.
Someone somewhere must answer this call to leadership, societal renewing and transformation. Working closely with other agencies in the society like the child development agency, the national integrity commission and other invested groups and politicians the renewal can begin.
Jamaica needs the healing!
