‘Open A Business, Not Your Legs’ – Reno Omokri On Stingy Women Association

Reno Omokri has slammed women for threatening to close their legs to the members of the Stingy Men Association of Nigeria (SMAN). Reno said women equating money from men to sex from women is simply an affirmation of prostitution. He wrote: "This Stingy Women Association, where slay queens counter the Stingy Men Association, by saying if men, who are not married to them, don’t give them money, they will close their legs, is proof of what I have been teaching all these years. That is prostitution. Let us not sugar coat truth! There is no co-relation between opening your legs and getting money, other than prostitution. Any girl who subscribes to that, whether jokingly, or otherwise, is affirming harlotry. If you need money, open a business, not your legs!"
