Variety is the spice of life for Zuma the stallion

2010-02-07 10:28

PRESIDENT Jacob Zuma keeps on top of his game thanks to the sexual

variety of the women who keep him stimulated.

This is the view of a sexologist.

Zuma fathering a child at almost 70 ­smashes the myth that age

tempers your sex drive.

Clinical sexologist and popular columnist Dr Marlene Wasserman (Dr

Eve) says men who are 60 and older should have no problem being sexually

functional as long as they avoid chronic illnesses which are caused by poor

nutrition, lack of ­exercise and substance abuse.

“The motivation for Zuma’s stamina might be the ongoing sexual

variety he enjoys. Men lose stamina and interest as they become familiar with

the same sexual ­partner, but Zuma keeps his interests high by having a variety

of women to keep him ­stimulated,” said Dr Eve.

“The unhealthy part is, he is doing exactly what we virulently

advise against in South Africa – sexual networking and having concurrent sexual

partners – which aids the ­primary spread of HIV.”

Zuma has fathered no fewer than 20 ­children by seven women.

Men’s Clinic International sex counsellor Mathews Dladla says that

a lot of their young male clients complain about low sex drive and erectile

dysfunction which can be caused by, among other things, poor nutrition and


“The president can easily afford to ­maintain a balanced diet and

might not face the daily stresses that affect the average male, hence his high

sex drive,” said Dladla.

Sex expert Dr Elna McIntosh says it’s quite normal for an

andropausal (aging) male to still be sexually active, and the reason Zuma has

such a high libido is because he has good testosterone levels, which are

beneficial in preventing osteoporosis (weak bones) and decreasing cardiac risk.

“Our president, however, does appear to be more active than the

average ageing male. Sex is a bit like IQ – if you don’t use it, you lose it.”

But what makes him so different from his fellow comrades from the

class of 1942 who don’t have such a high sexual appetite?

It may be that Zuma’s other habits are sober, which can drastically

improve sexual performance and drive.

“Drinking and smoking can lead to erectile ­dysfunction, and our

president ­appears to be in excellent health, which is beneficial to his sexual

performance,” said Dr McIntosh.

Furthermore, it doesn’t look as if Zuma will stop reproducing any

time soon, seeing that there is no cut-off age for a man.

Thomas Parr, born in 1483 in ­Shropshire, England, is the oldest

­documented living male to become a dad – at 122.

Compared to Parr, Zuma is young enough, not to mention fertile

enough, to reproduce for generations to come.
