The conversation aims to gain insights from young men and women on the drivers of transactional sexuality and its impact on sexual health and socioeconomic outcomes. The conversation will be guided by the following questions:
- How do young people understand the terms “blesser” and “sugar daddy”?
- What makes men to become “blessers” or “sugar daddies” and what motivates women to be “blessees” or “sugar babies”?
- Can transactional sex be a safe option in the pursuit of sexual health?
- What is the role of gender empowerment and economic opportunities in understanding transactional sexualities?
We have invited a representative from ZaziSA, a women’s sexual health empowerment movement to be the conversation starter at the event. The event will be structured as an interactive discussion with workshop activities and small group discussions.
