African languages thrive on the deployment of proverbs to ground the social import of numerous conversational exchanges. The Yorùbá people of Nigeria particularly employ these ‘bits of conversational condiment’ to flavour talk, regardless of the tenor of discourse .

Check out these 10 proverbs that show there is no barrier to far for a Yoruba indigene in order to make a point.

 

1. No one who is pregnant should give away her vagina.

This proverb simply means that no one gives away a tool that will soon be in use. Why could they not simply say that!

2.If a man makes sexual advances to his sisters, even half sisters would avoid him

This proverb connotes a person who is mired in so much controversy or dishonest acts that people find it hard to retain trust.

3.Moreover, when a man with a huge penis is having sex with a woman, let her simply groan all the way.

This lascivious sounding one is actually a call for one to persevere because no situation is permanent.

4.As the elders say, the man that has sex once and punches the vagina will soon have another erection

This is a call to ungrateful people who think they can get away after they have received help. You will definitely return for help in the future.

5.The Yorùbá say that the penis brags, the vagina swanks; a meeting in bed will resolve their altercation.

This awesome proverb is advice that no matter how aggravated a situation is,there is always room for mediation.

6.No one can frighten an old woman with a large penis.

Surely there is no need to explain this one.

7.We won’t allow a child to turn his father’s scrotum into a toy all because we wouldn’t like the child to die.

This warning is for  friends,family relations who tend to take work for granted when engaged by family or class mates. You will get fired before the job is allowed to go waste.

8.How much pleasure can we hope to derive from the vagina, to make us pray that the day will not break?

Every good thing has an end.

9.The elders say that no matter what, penis is penis, and testicles are testicles, but the tensile strength of the scrotum varies from man to man.

No matter the perception of equality, some people are better suited for certain tasks than others.

10.The horse is having an erection and the chick is making ready for penetration.
